    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 →

    This is the functional computer keyboard constructed by Jason Allemann out of nothing but LEGO bricks and the dome-switch circuit board from a donor keyboard. Although whether the keyboard was a WILLING donor remains to be decided by a criminal court. Keep going for a video a... / Continue →

    These are the chocolate chip shot glasses designed by New York City pastry chef Dominique Ansel. If his name sounds familiar, it's because Dominique is also responsible for the super-popular cronut. If his name didn't sound familiar at all, welcome to the club. Figuring th... / Continue →

    Note: Worthwhile larger version HERE. This is the portrait of famed animator Hayao Miyazaki created by DeviantARTist C3nmt using Miyazaki's movie characters. I'm actually playing through Level-5 and Studio Ghibli's PS3 game 'Ni No Kuni' right now, and it's like living in one ... / Continue →

    This is Princess Bubblegum's castle recreated in gingerbread and candy by Redditor IHaveAFluffyCat. Cool, IHaveASmoothTurtle. She posted a pictorial of the entire operation on Imgur, so if you're interested in trying and failing to repeat the process you're more than welcome.... / Continue →

    These are a series of LEGO Christmas ornaments/decorations made by LEGOManiac Chris McVeigh. He has the parts lists and illustrated instructions of how to construct each on his website. Don't feel like ordering the pieces from LEGO yourself? Then buy the sets directly from C... / Continue →

    This is the gingerbread AT-AT constructed by the Magnolia Hotel & Spa's restaurant Catalano for the Canadian National Gingerbread Showcase. Looks good. Granted I don't remember seeing any AT-AT's with antlers and red noses in the movies, but knowing George Lucas, they were th... / Continue →

    This is the set of dragon bone armor made by Redditor Starkfelt17. Me? I haven't felt 17 since I was 17. Although I did feel 19 a couple weekends ago when a friend produced a tray of Jello shots from the fridge. Obviously, the costume isn't real dragon bone because real dra... / Continue →

    This is a Chewbacca pelt looking sofa from Sentient of Brooklyn, New York. It's not actually wookie fur though, it's Icelandic Lamb. So don't worry, your couch was never smart enough to fly a spaceship. It could go 'baaaaaah' and look really cute while doing it though, so th... / Continue →

    This is a 3-D recreation of MC Escher's iconic 'Relativity' built in LEGO (six years ago: this one) by Riccardo Zengelmi using 9,000 blocks over the course of 15 days. It kind of hurt my brain to look at for so long. It also kind of hurt my brain to chug both those beers with... / Continue →

    This is the lion sculpture made entirely out of old shredded tires spotted (or possibly just stolen somewhere else off the internet) by Redditor m1keyth. I think it's somewhere in the UK, but it could be in the park by my apartment but I wouldn't know because I never leave. I... / Continue →

    This is a series of Game of Thrones house sigils, Star Wars, Futurama and Adventure Time characters all carved from crayons, JUST LIKE THE TITLE SAYS. Of course prior to my latest revision it read, 'Naked Ladies -- Boobies Everywhere!', so I'm not sure what to think of myself.... / Continue →

    This is a chandelier made out of old Nintendo zappers by the folks at online used game/console store JJGames. It's not bad looking. It's maybe not the way I would have arranged the zappers, but I have an eye for shit. GOOD LOOKING SHIT. Still, not bad. Plus I think we can ... / Continue →

    This is 'Paperboy', a sculpture artist Andrew Vickers made out of chicken wire and the vintage comic books he found in a dumpster. Having found them in a dumpster, Andrew just assumed they weren't worth anything. But he was wrong. Really, really, wrong. Although, to his cre... / Continue →
