Why 3D-Print A Darth Vader Bust When Papercraft Will Do Too?

Indeed. The Darth Vader and Stormtrooper you see here are not 3D-printed like one would have expected. Believe it or not, they are made entirely of paper in an extremely cool low-poly style as some 3D-printed versions have to offer. Super cool, right? Perfect acquisition for those who don’t have the budget for Hot Toys and equivalent-grade bust. Continue reading Why 3D-Print A Darth Vader Bust When Papercraft Will Do Too?

Here Are Some Fallout Collectibles No Fans Should Live Without

The recently announced Fallout: 76 won’t be available till Fall, but already, news of its merchandise has already emerging, including our apple of our eyes: the Pip-Boy 2000 Mk Vi kit and now, we heard our all-time favorite geek store has a bunch of other Fallout stuff. Whether or not they are directly related to the upcoming Fallout: 76 does not matter. What matters is, these merchandise from this referential video game franchise are super dope. They are part futurism and steampunk, but all retro-futuristic and that tickles my fancy, a lot. Continue reading Here Are Some Fallout Collectibles No Fans Should Live Without

Fallout: 76 Revealed, Special Edition And Pip-Boy 2000 Mk VI Collectible

There’s something strangely alluring about referential things. Perhaps, that is why Fallout has a such a huge following. I am not fan of the game, btw. I hate any game that requires me to face mutants, monsters et cetera. But I am fan of the art of Fallout. There’s nothing more referential then this now-iconic game. Late last month, Bethesda revealed a teaser to a new Fallout game, called Fallout: 76. A couple of weeks later on June 10, the U.S. game publisher made the official reveal. Continue reading Fallout: 76 Revealed, Special Edition And Pip-Boy 2000 Mk VI Collectible

Here’s An Ejection Seat You Can Buy… If You Have $20K To Spare

I have no idea why anyone needs an ejection seat, but in case you are in the market for one, here’s one Boeing is selling. Boeing said this particular seat was ripped from a F-4 Phantom. Yup. The Phantom. It was a Mk. 7 rocket-assisted ejection seat built by British manufacturer Martin-Baker Aircraft Co. Ltd. So, it is the real-deal. Your days of pretending to be on a fighter jet is over. No, actually not really. But at least it is real ejection seat, not your self-assembled IKEA variety. Continue reading Here’s An Ejection Seat You Can Buy… If You Have $20K To Spare

S.T. Dupont Puts Watch Complication Into A Lighter, Wants $41K In Return

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

LEGO Star Wars BrickHeadz For NYCC Revealed And How You Can Get It

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. Until now, Star Wars has not been inducted into the BrickHeadz family, but that changes with this first issue, featuring Boba Fett and his bounty, Han Solo in Carbonite. 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

Here Are Some Really, Really Cool Robotech Collectibles From Kids Logic

Popular eighties anime Macross is thirty-five this year, but the mash-up, the eight-five episodes American mix, is a few years short of that, but regardless, it won’t change anything and it certainly won’t stop Kids Logic’s series of Macross/Robotech collectibles from popping up in the market.
