The long-awaited followup to my infamous Crumb-Buster design, a kitchen gadget that will help make Blizzards or McFlurries at home. Technically those desserts can be made with a blender but I wanted something that was easy to use, easy to clean, and was manually operated.

I’m a little embarrassed to post this, because it has that “seen on TV gizmo” vibe, so apologies in advance. This is my take on cereal Tupperware containers, and it combats those small crumbly bits that taint the last bowl of Cheerios.

If Darth Vader can get a toaster, I don’t see why Scorpion from Mortal Kombat can’t get the same treatment. It’s a little more appropriate here, owing to the famous Toasty joke the video games are known for.
The face mask operates the toast lever. I wanted something that looked like a retro/vintage toaster for this design, so it doesn’t look out of place on the kitchen counter when not in use.
It could also have eyes that light red from the heating elements (or LEDs), but that might be a bit too dramatic for making toast. I’m still debating whether or not I should add that.
Other design notes: the toast would be emblazoned with the Mortal Kombat logo. I don’t see why this design couldn’t be used for other characters like Sub-Zero, Reptile, and Smoke as well. Went with a skull because I wanted more chrome to match other kitchen appliances. I can see many other brands using this approach, like Transformers, but the Toasty joke clinches this design in my opinion.
Originally I planned to embed the “This Is Fine” dog in a fireplace screen, but then I felt it would be better if he appeared amidst the fire itself, so I placed him atop a fireplace grate (the thing that cradles logs).

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!

After I posted that THOR Hammer Tool Box a few months ago my first thought was, Iron Man is the handy one, he should get a cool tool set too. Tony Stark’s love of cars inspired me to create something specifically for garage-dwelling gearheads: a DUM-E robot comprised of things found in your typical garage.
DUM-E is made up of a shop-vac, pressure washer, mechanic’s creeper, and leaf blower. The latter three all attach to the main vacuum body, and can be removed as needed.

Seeing as the Ecto Containment Unit is a wall-mounted hub where many wires originate, I figured it would be a fun way to conceal electrical panels found in households (more so if the panel is in the basement). Your circuit breakers would now reside in a ghost prison.
Instead of creating an electrical panel shaped like the Ecto Containment Unit, I felt a separate cover that sits atop an existing electrical panel would be easier and cheaper to install. The design is modular so it can safely bypass all the wiring.
