    This is a shot of the line to get into the 1983 San Diego Comic Con -- 31 years before the shit show it is today. Wait, where are all the costumes? Where are all the people in general? 1983 was already the 13th year of the convention? It's been happening since 1970? I did ... / Continue →

    This is a vintage photo of a young Bill Nye doing science in 9th grade. Not to brag or anything, but I also did science in 9th grade. "You set the chemistry lab on fire." I was EXPERIMENTING. "With arson?" I didn't want to go to gym class next period because the other boys... / Continue →

    This is the 1953 Volkswagen Beetle exterior that was crumpled into a sphere by Indonesian artist Ichwan Noor. I think we can all agree it makes a powerful statement about how fun it would be to push that thing down a hill. He got his idea of this piece from his personal per... / Continue →

    Because what fun is collecting something piece by piece when you can just get them ALL AT ONCE, here's a massive 1,950 Star Wars action figure collection for sale on eBay. I know at least two people in real life who are trying to conceal boners right now after seeing this. An... / Continue →

    This is a shot of Youtube user 16bitghost's (AKA Pete's) extensive home gaming setup. As you can see, he has pretty much every console ever including some that only existed on the city of Atlantis before Poseidon sank it because its citizens started worshiping science instead ... / Continue →

    This is an $850 Ghostbuster Proton Pack replica from Viking Props (which, despite the name, sells zero horned helmets or Thor hammers). It's pretty accurate, and even has some light up effects. Even more light effects and some sound ones are available too, but at an extra cos... / Continue →

    Blik Re-Stik Asteroid Wall Decals are $45 sticker packs that turn your frown upside down wall into a giant unplayable game of Asteroids. That's a whole set pictured, so you can get an idea of what you could do with one. Which, whether you have any sense of composition or not,... / Continue →

    Note: This is only six of the eight, and in crappy resolution to boot, hit the jump to see all of them in stunning 450px res! Steve Thomas is a graphic designer. But not just any graphic designer, oh no -- THE graphic designer responsible for creating these vintage Star Wars ... / Continue →

    Some company called Fiberglass Freaks (I'm more of an Asbestos Freak myself) is manufacturing officially licensed replicas of the 1966 Batmobile Adam West used to drive when he wasn't too busy pretending to climb building exteriors. And all for $150K! Move over, that Ferrari ... / Continue →

    This is one in a series of vintage ads for current websites as imagined by Brazilian advertising agency Moma. Mmmm, I can almost smell the old magazines. the ads were designed for an upcoming media seminar with the overall theme of "what's new today, is old tomorrow", so they... / Continue →

    This is a tabletop Pac-Man game made entirely out of LEGO blocks. Except for the electronics, those were made from sugar and spice and everything nice. Or are they snips and snails and puppy dog tails?? Neither moron, they're metal and plastic. Aside from the obvious electr... / Continue →

    I may not have had a Scout Walker Command Tower growing up, but I did have a Cabbage Patch playhouse with a hornet's nest inside. So yeah, take that! Besides, this thing looks dangerous. I can just see my younger self falling out of and winding up a crumpled mess in the sand... / Continue →

    For all you OLD lovers out there, I've got the feeling this photo is at LEAST 15 years late, but -- Jesus, has it already been 15 years? Feels like it was just yesterday. Hit the jump for another shot of Kurt and another, little-er kitty.... / Continue →

    That's a long picture, isn't it? Almost as long as an elephant's trunk, but not quite. You know, I heard if you took this picture, copied 5,000 of them, and then laid them end to end it would circle Uranus. Haha, how do you fit that thing on the john? I kid. But not really... / Continue →

    We've featured a couple other vampire killing kits (not to mention zombie killing ones) here on Geekologie, but I particularly like this one because it's nice and discreet. Typically, it just looks like an old art print (lower right in photo), but slide the front off and TA-DO... / Continue →

    In an attempt to go after the "grew up in the 80's and played the hell out of Spy Hunter" demographic, Pontiac's new G8 commercial is based on the video game. I always thought the car was supposed to be a Stingray, but I did some deep digging (~4 seconds on Wikipedia) and foun... / Continue →

    Some guy made a Space Invader themed coffee table and is now selling it on Craigslist. He's asking $450, which is expensive. He has the list of materials he used on his website and apparently the thing cost him $415.59 to build. Which is also expensive. I'd be tempted to ma... / Continue →

    Just a short time ago we featured the Atari 2600 Controller Cake, and now somebody went and made the whole console! Made by Cakes By the Pound in Los Angeles, this thing looks like beautiful retro deliciousness. And for all of you out there that think you're above eating a ca... / Continue →
