Would You Pay $10K For A 1/4 Scale Bugatti Chiron W16 Engine?

Amalgam made a name for itself by creating insanely detailed scaled car models and scaled replica steering wheels, and if you think it’d stop right there, well, you are sorely wrong. The company has taken its scaled modelling to an out-of-this-world level of details with the 1/4 Scale Bugatti Chiron Engine and Gearbox. For this particular model, Amalgam collaborated closely with Bugatti to recreate the supercar maker’s 1,500 HP 8L 16-cylinder W engine that, without any real life object comparison, you’d thought it is the real deal pulled from a Bugatti Chiron.

Fans of Star Wars, take note. LEGO is releasing convention exclusive LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz at this year’s New York Comic-con, happening between October 5 and 8.

Hmmm, why do I have a feeling that this will be hotly vied and eventually sold on eBay for obscene amount of money? Why? Because, not only it is a convention exclusive, not everyone at the convention will be able to buy it. Continue reading LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz For NYCC Revealed And How You Can Get It

Millennium Falcon Violin Makes For A Vibrant Conversational Piece

If Han Solo plays violin, it will probably look like this Custom Millennium Falcon Violin. However, it will probably have strings on it which this sculpture here does not have. Then again, in a galaxy far, far away, they probably need no strings to make music because, sci-fi. Or perhaps, it is powered by miniature SRB42 sunlight engines, heavily modified, of course, which explains the blue LED glow it has at the bottom side of the lower bout. With the galaxy so massive, it is hard to imagine what kind of tech they have. This earthly creation by Etsy seller Richard Symon’s Art, on the other hand, is not loaded with mysterious galactic tech and therefore it will not create any harmonious notes even if you are Vanessa Mae of the galaxy far, far away because of the obvious lack of strings.
