New York-based photographer Dale May, who is best known for his commercial photography of celebrity portraits and print ads, has taken a slightly different route this time round with the LEGO Star Wars series. the most notable pair in this series, are perhaps the Coco Vader and the V3PO Louis Vuitton portraits. as the name suggests, both popular Star Wars characters are given a luxury brand twist with the Dark Sith branded with Louis Vuitton, backed by Coco Chanel, while the talkative android is branded with Coco Chanel, backed by the famous Louis Vuitton monogram design. both artworks are presented in silver c-print face mounted to an archival acrylic, backed with aluminum – a framing process that gives each photo a glossy finish. these prints are available in two sizes: 24″ x 24″ and 42″ x 42″ and will set you back at $2,200 and $4,200, respectively. click past the jump for a couple of larger images.

so what exactly is an ANIMATRONIC DOOR Haunted House Prop? it is a door with a LCD that resembles a window showing a corridor on ‘the other side of the door’. a dude that appears to be an axe murderer walks up towards the window and as you might have guessed, stares at you in a very creepy way and then proceed to ‘break the door’ with his axe. a cleverly designed mechanism runs in sync with the psycho axe-wielding killer’s axing actions, shakes the door and ‘dents’ start to materialize on the door. how’s that for a 3D haunted house prop? apparently, a firm by the name of Pale Night Productions has created a similar prop some two years ago. so whether is this a rip-off or not, is entirely up to you to decide.

in every fantasy sci-fi movie, there is the hero and then there’s the necessary villain, and it so happens that villain always look a whole lot cooler (not to mention their firearms), hence its memorabilia tends to look equally cool and collectable. however, i can’t say the same for TRON: Legacy, where evil CLU is no where as cool as his masked enforcer of The Grid. that’s perhaps the reason what make this limited edition Rinzler Maquette so awesome. created by Sideshow Collectibles, in partnership with Quantum Creation FX, this memorable masked enforcer is presented as a maquette that is individually painted and finished.

there is nothing that strike more fear in online shopping fanatics like the big red (sometimes, bold) word that says ‘SOLD’ but that won’t stop us from showcasing this Steampunk Big Daddy Gun, created by one Neil Taylor aka faustus70. born as a NERF Barricade, this awesome toy gun was a given a comprehensive nip and tuck, and the result is what you see here – the Steampunk Big Daddy Gun. yea. i know, it’s nothing like a Barricade, only 100x more awesome. the main bulk of the body was made from planks cut from an old chair that is said to be at least 75 years old, and held in place with hand-cut aluminum strips with rivets. i guess that makes it one heck of a vintage gun.
