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.
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.

Wouldn’t it be cool if the Avengers HQ was an actual University Campus? Accompanied by dorms that looked the Xavier Mansion? Both locales are places I’d love to visit in real life; but as tourist traps there wouldn’t be much to them (save for the basement in the X-mansion), so it would be more worthwhile if they served as institutions of learning.
It’s just a dream right now, but I could envision several tech companies like Apple, Google, and Facebook coming together to build such a school. I would only stipulate they build it in upstate New York to keep things authentic. Maybe Fox and Disney can also chip in, as such a place would allow them to film on location.
In the vein of Tony Stark this could be a technical institute, however I’d be happy with any specialty like medicine or science. Law school wouldn’t work — this isn’t a breeding ground for villains, haha.
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.

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.
