Originally wanted to make a piggy bank design, but then I realized I’m an adult (hey it was bound to happen) who likes to keep coins/keys in a coin dish, so I went with that instead. Nothing fancy about this design, just a Scott Pilgrim figurine standing victorious over a fallen opponent.
Saw a bright red washer and dryer set recently, and this idea was born. I’m in a good mood and it’s Friday so I’ll share it: In a cruel twist of fate, Optimus Prime has been recruited to clean clothes, ’til all laundry is done!

How about THE CITY NEEDS YOU as motivation for waking up? I present a Batman themed alarm clock, which features the iconic red phone on top of a Batcave-inspired display straight from the sixties.

I’ve seen quite a few geeky mini fridges lately, from Han Solo in Carbonite to Iron Man. While it’s great that there are so many options for geeks to choose from, none of them have grabbed me personally. So if it were up to me, I’d make a design based on the TMNT Party Wagon.
The box shape is optimal for storage, and that iconic door (used for ramming Foot ninjas) swings open like a fridge door, so it’s a perfect fit.
The one shown here is big enough for a 12-pack of soda and a sandwich. However if the wheels were entirely on the outside of cabin there’d be even more room for food. You could even upscale this van for a much larger fridge, with storage in the door too. This could also be down-scaled to fit 4-6 sodas so it doesn’t take up too much room on your desk.
UPDATE: This is now a real product, head here for details. Original post as follows:
When it comes to tools there isn’t much in the way of geeky-themed hardware or accessories. Hoping to address this oversight, I present a THOR Hammer tool kit, for those times when you need to swing a hammer. This compact tool box features several tools and a socket set, for those minor jobs around the house that call for a superhero.
When not being carried around for Asgardian cosplay, this hammer opens up to reveal all the tools stored inside. The handle is shared with an actual hammer, which is fastened into a removable tray. Beneath the tray is a reservoir for loose tools and nuts/bolts.

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.
