You’ll kick your old boring  portable speakers to the curb when you see these adorable Marvel rechargeable speakers. You can choose from Hulk, Iron Man, or Captain America and can even get all three and daisy-chain them together. Each measures 3.5″ x 6.1″ x 6.7″ and recharges via an included micro USB cable. A single charge will give you about 10 hours of listening time.

Most people will agree that the recent Teenage Mutant Ninja Reboot was a flippin’ CG-powered train wreck. But do you know what would’ve made it better? 8-bit graphics. 8-Bit Cinema made a retro NES spoof of the 2014 flick, and it actually seems like it would be fun to play.

It’s Black Friday, but I’ll be dammed if I’m going to rush out to fight the crowds. I would rather stay at home and browse some of the awesome deals to be had online.

tiny sword

It’s one thing to watch a blacksmith turn a giant hunk of metal into a sword, but it’s something else entirely to watch a nail being turned into a sword worthy of a mouse. Watch as Inspire to Make creates a wee tiny little sword that might not slay any dragons, but still looks ridiculously cute.

This looks like a still-shot from an anime sequence, but it’s actually an action figure. It was made by mumumuno53 to look like a drawing, but it’s a very carefully colored and shaded action figure that he painted. The skill required to pull this off so convincingly is just amazing.

Some dinosaurs are scary and will gore you to death in a second, but not this one. He’s a lovable plush that measures 30.5″W x 74″D x 44″H and all he wants to do is give you a hug. Aw, just look at the cute little dinosaur. It’s certainly a lot cuddlier than this.

Lego recently unveiled its Detective’s Office set which included a video that may have held a sneak peek at a rumored S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier. GrooveBricks caught it at the very beginning of the video, hidden in the letter “G” and visible for just a second.

Back on September 8th, the Avengers Helicarrier managed to garner the 10,000 votes that Lego Ideas requires before a project can be considered for production, but there’s been no official word thus far. Perhaps this glimpse means it’s already a done deal. Rumors have the set coming out in March at a price of $349.99 which would make it one of the biggest and most expensive sets they’ve ever created.

rainbow

If a narwhal is magical good luck, and a unicorn is magical good luck, then just how much magical good luck do you get when you combine the two?

Such is the question that Los Angeles’s artistic couple Kozyndan set out to answer with this sculpture entitled “Rainbow Magic”.

Crafted in cooperation with Pretty In Plastic, this resin sculpture is a blue and green unicorn inside a clear narwhal with both sharing a single brightly colored horn. You can even buy one for your home if you’re willing to spend $1500. That’s really expensive, but we’re thinking you’re much more likely to hit the lotto if you own it.

Head after the break to see more pictures.
