Black Pearl Cognac

Black Pearl Cognac
$32,000  Buy Comment

Talk about markup: New York’s Rose Club is charging $2,500 a shot for Remy Martin’s Louis XIII Black Pearl cognac; you can save a bit if you buy the whole bottle here for only $32k.

Far Cry 2: Immersion

Far Cry 2: Immersion
$50  Buy Comment

Clint Hawking, Far Cry 2 Creative Director, talks shop (above) about immersion. We like the idea: little details like getting into and out of vehicles help to boost realism.

Deckpeck Skateboards

Deckpeck Skateboards
$55  Buy Comment

This is one deck you won’t thrash: DolceQ’s sexy skateboards are actually printed by Deckpeck. They allow artists to create their own custom decks and wheels as well as sell them.

Flash Game: Canyon Defense

Flash Game: Canyon Defense

Canyon Defense isn’t the only Tower Defense-style game, but it’s quite fun, with good graphics and futuristic weapons. Our only complaint is that it is a bit easy; more levels, por favor.

Batman: Bank Robber Joker

Batman: Bank Robber Joker
$175  Buy Comment

“Insanely” detailed, this 1:6 scale, 12″ Bank Robber Joker comes with plenty of goodies, including two heads, a clown mask, two guns, gloves and a grenade duffel.

Trailer: Empire Total War

Trailer: Empire Total War
$50  Buy Comment

We feature a lot of first person shooters and RPGs here, but still enjoy a good strategy game. Empire: Total War is an RTS/turn-based hybrid, with glorious ship battles.

Trailer: Battlefield: Heroes

Trailer: Battlefield: Heroes

If Joseph Heller’s Catch-22 were ever made into a game, it’d probably resemble Battlefield: Heroes. Banjoes, kilts aplenty, and mimes on fire, all for free later this year: oohh yeah.

Video: Transformers 2 Set

Video: Transformers 2 Set

No surprises here: this video from the set of Transformers 2 shows more gun-toting, tire-squealin’ totally exploderific action. That, and Michael Bay showing off his custom Nikes.

Lego Stormtrooper Olympics

Lego Stormtrooper Olympics

The Empire apparently dominated the ’08 Olympics, as these Lego dioramas by Alan Chia show. Most memorable moment: stormtrooper spoofs the relay, gets throttled by Vader.

Moody Slobot

Moody Slobot
$350  Buy Comment

We’re big fans of M. Heislers custom Slobots, so we’re really digging this heavily modified Moody Slobot; he’s made for shark hunting, hence the fins and oxygen tube.

Cape North Vodka

Cape North Vodka
$44  Buy Comment

European favorite Cape North Vodka has crossed the pond to the States; it’s a wheat-based vodka made with Swedish spring water, with hints of vanilla and citrus notes.

Details are sparse for DeathSpank; we do know it’s an adventure RPG made by Ron Gilbert of Monkey Island fame, in conjunction with Hothead of Penny Arcade: OTRSPOD fame.

Book: Mechanika

Book: Mechanika

Doug Chiang is an accomplished artist who has worked on Star Wars, Terminator 2, and even The Mask. His latest book, Mechanika, is a must-read for sci-fi artists and fans.

Resistance 2: Collector’s Ed.
$60  Buy Comment

Talk about sealing the deal: Resistance 2 is getting a Collector’s Edition which includes an awesome 5.5″ DC Universe Chimera Hybrid figure, art book and bonus DVD.

Trailer: Star Wars (TV)

Trailer: Star Wars (TV)

This summer’s animated Star Wars: Clone Wars movie didn’t meet expectations; however, the boob tube may be more suitable. The TV series airs 10/3 on the Cartoon Network.

Thunder God Vinyl

Thunder God Vinyl
$66  Buy Comment

Chinese mythology buffs (you know you’re out there) will love this Lei Gong, God of Thunder vinyl. A bird in a Charlie Brown shirt with a bomb and flip flops: works for us.

Flash Game: Sonny

Flash Game: Sonny

Sonny is a fun and free Flash-based RPG a-la Final Fantasy; you start off as an amnesiac zombie armed with an iron pipe. The production values are surprisingly high.

Climbatron

Climbatron
$7  Buy Comment

We have to admit the Climbatron is utterly pointless (and likely annoying), but it is pretty cool. Using suction cups, it climbs on vertical surfaces–great for driving friends up the wall.

Valt Vodka

Valt Vodka
$55  Buy Comment

Valt Vodka is the world’s first single malt vodka by Scottish distillers. It’s made from many of the same materials that are used in Scotch whisky, including barley sugar and cream.

Saucerbot Lightpainting

Saucerbot Lightpainting
$75-100  Buy Comment

We’re totally digging these fantastic lightpainting photos by artist Andy Hill, who makes and sells retro sci-fi Saucerbots from LED lights, leftover CDs, DVDs and hard drive platters.

Desktop Stirling Engine

Desktop Stirling Engine
$380  Buy Comment

A marvel of efficiency, the Desktop Stirling Engine uses an alcohol burner to expand the air in a glass tube; this spins the attached flywheel at speeds of up to 5,000 RPM.

Trailer: Max Payne

Trailer: Max Payne

We have to say this trailer for Max Payne (10/17) has us genuinely excited. Games generally don’t translate well to Hollywood (*cough* Mr. Boll); let’s hope for an exception.

Custom Sharkys

Custom Sharkys
$120+  Buy Comment

We featured Keith Poon’s WW2 Sharky Vinyls earlier; Toyqube is now selling 54 custom, one-of-a-kind Sharkys. Our favorites are the Reactor88 and Ultraman customs.

Krups Beertender

Krups Beertender
$280  Buy Comment

Perfect for football parties, the Krups Beertender not only keeps beer perfectly chilled at 41 degrees F, but it injects CO2 every time you open the tap. Use with a Heineken DraughtKeg.

Minigods Speakers

Minigods Speakers
$125  Buy Comment

Marka27’s 16″ tall Minigods have an ace up their sleeve chest — these limited edition vinyls also double as speakers, with a mini-jack and battery-powered internal amp.

Sukiyaki Western Django

Sukiyaki Western Django

Sukiyaki Western Django is a Wild West version of Kung Fu Hustle, with Quentin Tarantino thrown in for good measure. It’s only showing in New York, but will debut in LA on 9/12.

Bruichladdich 18
$145  Buy Comment

Twice aged for 18 years in American and premium French oak casks, Bruichladdich’s single malt scotch whisky has a rich, syrupy aroma and a viscous, buttery taste.
