Vesa LehtimÃ¤ki stumbled upon a box of his old spaceship scale models and took pictures of them head on “to capture their character.” The filter and shadows wonderfully combine grit and nostalgia.
The Nerf N-Strike Elite Hail-Fire Blaster’s long name is trumped by its ridiculous capacity. The semiautomatic has a rotating ammo rack that fits up to 8 clips, with a potential capacity of 144 darts.
A fully-functional desktop replica of a Roman ballista – capable of firing not deadly shield-piercing bolts, but toothpicks. Be careful though, or you’ll shoot your
eye orange out, kid.
Take a 4:51 break to view SpongeBob Squarepants animator David Fain’s clever choreographed video of some multitalented plastic army men; the vast amount of editing is more than impressive.
A life-sized replica of Ezio Auditore’s armored vambrace as seen on Assassin’s Creed: Brotherhood. Although it’s only made of plastic, be careful with the spring-loaded hidden blade.
A proposal for three official LEGO sets based on Portal 2 – GLaDOS’ Chamber, a Modular Testing Chamber and a Puzzle Board Game. If it gets at least 10,000 votes, LEGO will consider making it.
A limited-edition 16″ tall statue of the Aperture Sentry turret. It’s cast in poly-stone, hand-finished and hand-painted. Plays sound bites from the game, has a light-up eye, and it doesn’t hate you.
