    Remember those melted army men bowls we posted back in 2010? Of course you don't, you couldn't even read back then. Well now Instructables user N36 has provided a tutorial detailing how to make your own. I'm not really sure it needed a tutorial, but apparently some people ha... / Continue →

    This is the giant realistic cat head mask made out of wool by Housetu Sato and his students at the Japan School of Wool Art. Wool Art: apparently it has a school in Japan. I'm not sure why they made the eyes crossed though. Regardless, I want one to up my furry cred. Jk jk,... / Continue →

    These are the Game of Thrones house sigil pancakes made by pancake magician Nathan Shields. What's your favorite house sigil? Mine's Greyjoy, because it reminds me of the female reproductive system. I'm mature for my age. "You act like you're twelve." Well I'm only nine an... / Continue →

    This is The Bone Throne, a replica of the Iron Throne built by UK-based bondage company Bondara. The throne has 200 rubber dildos attached. Personally, I think there should be way more. There is like, way too much empty space on that throne. I suspect they got cheap and did... / Continue →

    The Bark Knight, get it? Because trees have bark on them. Growing up in Alabama we called that tree-skin. This is the carved wood Batman sculpture created by artist Thomas Earing, who, based on his name, I'm surprised doesn't dabble in jewelry instead. The Batman carving s... / Continue →

    Wow, two gingerbread posts in a row, it must be the holidays or something! (Is it the holidays?) This is the gingerbread USS Enterprise built and on display at the Blackmarket Bakery in Costa Mesa, California. They did a good job. But you know what my least favorite thing ab... / Continue →

    This is the gingerbread Barad-dûr with light-up Eye of Sauron built by two Finnish engineering and computer science students. It took over 13.5-pounds of gingerbread to complete, but only one really high friend to eat half of when they had their backs turned. Keep going for a... / Continue →

    Seen here looking suspiciously like he has a spider for a penis, this is the giant Incredible Hulk sculpture that Thailand scrap metal artist BanHunLek created. He did a great job. You know, scrap metal is great because it's one of those materials that you can find lying arou... / Continue →

    This is the old Charlie's Angels pinball machine that was upcycled into a desk by Connecticut artist Tim Sway. Not a bad idea. Have I ever told you I used to own a Twilight Zone pinball machine? I used to own a Twilight Zone pinball machine. That was many moons ago though. ... / Continue →

    This is a video of Youtuber Theramin Hero performing the Game of Thrones theme song on his custom built NES keytair. The NES even still functions as a gaming console! Plus it has light-up effects. The whole song kind of sounds like a phone ringing and nobody answering it. T... / Continue →

    This is the plush octopus backpack made by Tumblr-er Jennifer Mones. I'm not sure how it was made, but presumably out of an existing octopus plush toy. I made a Cabbage Patch backpack like that once. Well, it wasn't so much a backpack as one of my little sister's Cabbage Pa... / Continue →

    This is a video of Alex Allmont's electronic beat producing LEGO machine, Playhouse. It makes beats so fresh you'd swear they were handpicked from the farm this morning. Or at least aren't passed their expiration date and marked with one of those orange 'Manager's Special' st... / Continue →

    This is the C-3PO Star Wars action figure carrying case that's been repurposed as an electric guitar. Me? I've always imagined C-3PO crushed in a Death Star trash compactor then cut into cubes and repurposed as paper weights. Everyone knows the Darth Vader collector's case... / Continue →

    This is the mecha smartphone holder ($90) made and sold by Etsy shop MechWorld. It looks like it's made out of a bunch of cabinet door hinges and other hardware. It also looks like it would be a real treat to accidentally step on in the middle of the night. "But why would it... / Continue →
