Spring is here, so I thought it would be fun to make a geeky tent design that would be perfect for all of your away missions: I present a tent design based on the shuttlecraft from Star Trek. It’s not such a far-fetched idea; Star Trek V began with Kirk, Spock, and McCoy camping in the great outdoors. Read the rest of this entry
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.
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. Read the rest of this entry
You can buy a high-res poster here.
As you know I do replicas of posters seen in film and television, and my newest entry is a tribute to one of my all-time favorite films, Diggstown (1992). It’s a clean and simple design, the only change I made was to the beer sponsor; it says Millen but if you squint it looks like Miller.
If you haven’t seen Diggstown, it’s a fun popcorn film worth checking out. Yeah it has the production value of a TV-movie, and a few cheesy scenes, but the good far outweighs the bad.
Please forgive the bare-bones look of this design (more on that later), I just wanted to express an idea for a living/mechanical book display, one that operates without using electrical power. There’s a fair bit going on here so I didn’t want to clutter it up. See it in action after the jump. Read the rest of this entry
Jabba the Hutt’s throne room struck me as an ideal bed design, because the gangster and all his henchmen/guards also sleep in that room, so why not make a bunk bed out of it?
For this bunk bed a more conventional design was employed, because I want something that is straightforward to build, or would allow people to modify existing beds. Previous bed designs I have posted here are too cost-prohibitive to make.
The top bed is Jabba’s throne room, the bottom bed is the Rancor pit. For child safety reasons there is no trap door! Jabba’s level features a perch for the giant slug and a Han Solo in Carbonite tucked to the side. The Rancor pit features rocky wallpaper, cage siding, and LED lighting activated by a familiar switch.
Both beds have some flat counter space at the back of the frame, where toys can be parked. Whether it’s plush or regular Star Wars toys, this bed is essentially a giant playset.
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
