Spirited Away Kaonashi Musha-Musha Coin Bank Wants To Devour Your Coins

Holy mother of… it looks like fans of Japanese anime fantasy flick Spirited Away are in for a treat. Studio Ghibli is producing and more importantly, making available, a coin bank based on everyone’s favorite character (well, if you can call No Face a character, that is) Kaonashi. Officially called Spirited Away Kaonashi Musha-Musha Coin Bank, this novel, you-can’t-help-but-want-to-save adorable coin bank works pretty much like the popular Itazura Kitty Coin Bank in that it has an automated mechanism that makes depositing coins into a coin bank a little less mundane.

54 Pipmen: World Playing Cards Come Together To Form One Big World

Forget about your boring playing cards, the Pipmen: World Playing Cards by Elephant Playing Cards you see here is the playing cards you want if you desire for something beyond a game of poker and black jack. What makes Pipmen: World Playing Cards is how each card’s graphics is unique and they come together, much like a puzzle, to form a unique Pipmen World, thus making it the world’s first 54-piece polyptych puzzle with unique connected scenes. Pipmen by itself is intriguing too. In addition to the Pip (which are basically suit symbols on the card face), the cards feature little stickmen figures interacting with the pips to create a unique scene.

For $400, You Can Have A Piece Of Seinfeld In Miniature Proportion

You know what they say about all good things must come to an end and sadly, such was true for the hugely (and my personal all-time favorite) American sitcom Seinfeld which ran for 180 episodes, spanning 9 seasons on NBC. If you are like me, still reminisce about this good old comedy of the 90s, well then, we have good news for you. In addition to the DVD/Bluray collection you may have already amassed, there is one more thing you can acquire to remind you of this comedy gold in television’s history: a 1:26 scale replica of the Seinfeld official studio set.

Veteran Photographer’s Photo Book Weighs As Much As A Small Person!

What you see here is a photo book of epic proportion, called Equation of Time, containing masterpieces of Australian landscape photographer Peter Lik. So, just how big is this photo book? Well, it measures an unprecedented 30.25 x 22.25 x 6.25 inches (roughly 76.8 x 56.5 x 15.9 centimeters) and weighs a very hefty 106 pounds (48 kilograms). Man, that’s like as heavy as a small frame person. I used to have this lady ex-colleague (a grown adult, of course) who weighed a mere 88 pounds (40 kilograms only! I kid you not. I Swear). So, I guess you could say this photo book is heavy than a person? Seriously, I simply can’t get over how enormous this book is. Really.

Multi-tool Goes Geeky With Star Wars Millennium Falcon Multi-Tool Kit

While we concede that Millennium Falcon is probably one of the most versatile spaceship in the Star Wars universe, it is by no means godly. Meaning, it suffers from malfunctions and breakdowns from time to time, and when that happens, you will want this pocket-size Star Wars Millennium Falcon Multi-Tool Kit with you. Nah. Who am I kidding, right? This is way too small to deal with the hunk of junk and besides, hydrospanner is apparently not a standard issue which, with an spacecraft like so, you will need. But that’s not to say it has no use at all. It certainly can be of a help in your everyday simple repair jobs, or any handyman chores your wife issues. Continue reading Multi-tool Goes Geeky With Star Wars Millennium Falcon Multi-Tool Kit

Iron Man Shape-changing Armor Won’t Change Shape But No Less Awesome

Tony Stark has never stop innovating. The fictional super hero in exoskeleton suit has developed more armored suits than your digits can count, but if we were to single out one suit from recent time worthy of a special mention, it would be the shape-changing armor which appeared in 2015’s Invincible Iron Man comics. Why? Because, it can turn into a samurai-like armor or even a Hulkbuster in a snap without having to suit out and suit up, and also because the brilliant minds over at Chemical Attack and Japanese toy maker, Sentinel Toys, has given this bleeding edge armor a Japanese makeover and the result is absolutely fabulous. Continue reading Iron Man Shape-changing Armor Won’t Change Shape But No Less Awesome

Daft Punk Spruced Up This Christmas With Ornament Set And Snow Globes

You know what the famed, iconic robot helmets don by French electronic music duo could be good for? Christmas tree ornaments. Seriously, we never knew that until we saw the Daft Punk White & Gold Robot Helmet Ornament Set. I must say it was quite a revelation. Suddenly, it all makes perfect sense. Electronic music icons and Christmas. They are like a match made in heaven. There’s just one problem though; a set of two does not come cheap, going at $25 and surely, you are not going to hang only a pair, are you? And so, it is going to cost you like a lot if you plan to decorate your lovely fir with many of these. Of course, you can choose not to, but what else can go with the pair and also, how else can you make the Christmas tree worthy of a Daft Punk theme? Continue reading Daft Punk Spruced Up This Christmas With Ornament Set And Snow Globes

Nativity Scene In Modern Context Features Hipsters, Segways And Welfie

Modern Nativity calls it the Hipster Nativity Set, but to me, it is a fun parody of the classic nativity scene that oddly, puts a smile on our faces> The best part is, no religion is being poked fun at; it is just the classic, updated to today’s – specifically 2016 – context. So what do 2016’s context has? Well, according to Modern Nativity, everyone’s in their proudest, modern getups with Joseph sporting a man bun, dressed in a denim shirt, taking a wefie with baby Jesus and Mary, who happens to be holding a to-go coffee. And then there’s of course, the three wise men, who probably used Google Maps to find their way to the new born, but instead of walking, they have arrived in their Segways, each armed with a gift for the baby brought from Amazon.
