    This is the scale replica R2-D2 cake (previously: this hologram emitting one) created by the folks at Cakes Cove. They make custom cakes for weddings and parties. R2-D2's main body is all cake too -- no rice crispies or anything. Did you know the species of swamp monster tha... / Continue →

    This is a LEGO version of Homer's Homer car built by LEGO pro Brian Williams (previously: this real life Homer car). You know, I built a LEGO car once. "Let me guess -- it had square wheels." Good one, jerk! No, they were triangles. You know why? Because that's the shape ... / Continue →

    This is the 1993 Ford Explorer that Redditor scoodidabop converted into a Jurassic Park Ford Explorer. You know, it's a real shame Ford didn't monopolize on the opportunity and make a real Jurassic Park edition when they had the chance. What were you thinking?! I would have ... / Continue →

    Him? Own a Master Sword replica? I don't believe it. So you might have noticed I didn't write yesterday because I am deathly ill but I am trying to write today but my brain feels like the Jello that somebody's already squished between the gaps in their teeth a couple times, ... / Continue →

    This is a video from the 'Man at Arms' Youtube series (previously: Link's Master Sword) featuring blacksmith Tony Swatton forging Thor's hammer Mjolnir in real life. He doesn't actually use the heart of a dying star though (hopefully for reasons obvious to you), instead opting... / Continue →

    Wow, great job on the thighs. This is the 16-foot All Terrain Scout Transport (AT-ST) replica for sale on eBay for £9,800 (~$15,700). The seller advertises it as life-size, but the Star Wars wiki I just checked (I did research for once!) says an AT-ST should stand 8.6-meters (... / Continue →

    This is a video of the Knight Rider KITT replica that Chris Palmer built out of a 1991 Pontiac Trans Am (the original KITT was an '82). It looks pretty impressive. Now I'm usually a pretty traditional dater, but if Chris picked me up in this thing I'd probably make an excepti... / Continue →

    This is a real life reproduction (complete with furnished interior!) of Satsuki and Mei's house from 'My Neighbor Totoro'. Apparently it was built back in 2005 For the World's Fair near Nagoya, Japan and was designed by Hayao Miyazaki's son Gorō. Dammit, why didn't anybody te... / Continue →

    This is the half-scale replica of Vader's TIE Fighter built by a group of Germans for Star Wars Celebration Europe. It took over 1,000 man hours and $20,000 to build. And can you think of any better use for 1,000 man hours and $20,000? Because I can't. You think with 2,000 ... / Continue →

    This is the homemade Batmobile Redditor aggierogue3 spotted driving near Fort Worth, Texas this week. I don't know about you, but I could barely tell the difference from the one used in the 1989 movie. I like how it has exposed machine guns on the front fender, I bet the cops... / Continue →

    These are the Bioshock Infinite bird and birdcage pendant replicas sold by Etsy seller leagueofshadows. You can get one or the other for $13. You have to choose though, you can't get both. Just kidding, you can, but in the game you have to choose, so I feel like you should h... / Continue →

    This is the 15,000-piece, full-scale Terminator T-800 LEGO model built by Martin Latta. I would jump kick that jerk to pieces. He reminds me of one of those anatomical skeletons they used to have in biology class that always I'd fake-hump every time the teacher left the room.... / Continue →

    This is an exact replica of the Iron Throne made from fun noodles. For a second I thought dude was sitting in the actual Iron Throne, but it's not, it's just a very convincing replica. Also, do you think dude stuffed his shorts or his package is actually that big? Because th... / Continue →

    This is a video of laser lover and Youtuber AnselmoFanZero showing off the Dead Space plasma cutter replica he made. For the record, I've never played Dead Space because it's rated M for Mature and my mom says I'm anything but. Still, a pretty impressive build and the lasers ... / Continue →

    This is a $100 One Ring replica created by WETA Workshop and available from ThinkGeek. Unfortunately, they're not going to be back in stock until late February, so you can forget about Christmas listing one. But when they are available you can also get a sterling silver Chain... / Continue →

    This is Peter Cooper's Warthog replica (photo documentary of the build HERE). But now it can be YOUR Warthog replica, because he's selling it. For how much? No clue, he just says "Reasonable offers considered." Unfortunately, apparently Peter didn't consider "Give it to me ... / Continue →
