    This is a video from Man At Arms detailing the process of forging a traditional Japanese katana (in this case a Hattori Hanzō replica from Kill Bill). They even start by making their own steel from iron ore. The whole process was pretty fascinating, and the finished product (... / Continue →

    This is the Harry Potter Monster Book Of Monsters replica on sale soon by Sideshow Collectibles. I can't tell if it's actually a book or just a furry block. It would suck though if it didn't actually have pages. Or if it doesn't attack unless you stroke it's spine. If you s... / Continue →

    This is a beautiful stop-motion video created by animator Jon Rolph of an artist (presumably himself) producing a Mondrian replica by painting with LEGO bricks. You know, I wish I had the patience to make stop-motion videos because I have some GOOD IDEAS. "Let's hear them." ... / Continue →

    These are the $99 officially licensed shoes made to look like the Nike power-laces Marty McFly wears in Back to the Future II. Except they're not Nike, and they don't cost thousands of dollars like the ones Nike actually made and auctioned off a couple years ago. I'm half tem... / Continue →

    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 →
