How I’d Reboot The Fantastic Four

Fantastic Four reboot pitch by davesgeekyideas

Haven’t seen the new Fantastic Four film yet, but from what I’ve gathered it wasn’t well-received at all. Many fans have started to ponder the future direction of the franchise, myself included. Figured I’d share some of those thoughts. Read the rest of this entry

Robocop Data Spike USB Drive Bay

Robocop Data Spike by davesgeekyideas

Recently I was in the market for a USB Hub/Card Reader for my desktop PC, which would slot into a drive bay (like a DVD-R drive). I thought it would be funny if such a device included a gag port for Robocop’sdata spike“.

OCP branding would be an added bonus too. Imagine if there was a line of consumer gadgets with the OCP logo? Being defective or shoddy would be a feature.

Ghostbusters Bunk Bed

Actually started on this one before the Jurassic Park bunk bed, but stopped because I felt it looked too much like a School Bus. Thought I’d share it now because it’s still fun to look at.

The ladder is usually on the passenger side of the vehicle, however I moved it over for presentation purposes. The front of the Ecto-1 would serve as a trunk for storage.

Kingsman: The Secret Service Wallpapers

Kingsman The Secret Service and Valentine wallpapers by davesgeekyideas

Sorry I haven’t posted in ages! I’ve been swamped. Here are 2 new wallpapers for Kingsman: The Secret Service.

The Kingsman get a couple of desktop wallpapers, while Valentine gets a wallpaper for all the mobile devices. Both designs are accurate to the film.

Batman Coffee Table

Batman Coffee Table design by davesgeekyideas

Here’s a coffee table design based on the “armory” from The Dark Knight that rises from the floor in the Batcave. In order to function as a coffee table, the armory appears to be only partially raised. Read the rest of this entry

Toy Story Claw Crane Lamp

Toy Story Alien Claw Lamp

Here is a lamp design based on the claw crane game from the first Toy Story film, and it features a “captured” alien that you pull to turn the light on or off. It is the silliest thing I have ever posted.

The mockup above is on the small side to get the idea across, however I would prefer a large lamp populated by many alien dudes. You could even make the lower half a table, and the top half the lamp, if you get my drift. Either way a larger lamp would look closer in scale to its onscreen counterpart (which looks exactly like this, except it has glass partition supporting the top part of the rocket).

Bonus idea: originally I thought the captive-alien-in-a-claw would work as a necklace/pendant, similar to the Zelda design from a few months back.

Jaws Scent Bottle

Jaws Yellow Buoy CologneHere’s a fun design: a Jaws-branded cologne or perfume. There aren’t too many geeky scents out there, so why not? I imagine this would have a pleasant ocean or sea-breeze scent, as I doubt anyone would want to smell like chum.

Fans of the film will recognize what’s going on here, but for those who don’t know: the cap/pump is the yellow buoy that was tethered to the shark in the film; the hose extending from the pump looks like the rope used for the tether, and it appears to be attached to a shark at the bottom of the bottle. The glass bottle features a wavy design to look like water, the shark fin is part of the bottle too.

I went with a conventional bottle design here, otherwise I’d make it look closer to a gas container, with an angled buoy to give it the appearance of being towed by a shark.
