my_talking_elcor_plush_toy_mass_effect_by_sanshee_1-620x789

In case you were wondering, April Fools’ Day was weeks ago—the Talking Elcor Plush actually exists.

If you are unfamiliar with the Mass Effect universe, the Elcor are a massive, generally friendly species found on the Citadel. They are described as being “deliberate” and “conservative” with a monotone voice that appears to lack emotion. Because of this, they tend to describe what would otherwise be expressed with tone and body language.

As the product page states:

“My Talking Elcor voices a love greater than the gravity of Dekuuna and is scientifically engineered for maximum huggability and affection.”

Find out what Elcor says and see the plush in action after the break…

steampunk-light

This gorgeous vintage steampunk-style wall sconce by JWKinseysArtifice is lovingly made from mahogany, brass, copper, and rotary switches.

“This is an accent wall sconce, not intended for general illumination. In a dark, shadowy room, a star field is displayed upon the ceiling above the lamp.”

And with great craftsmanship comes great price tags. The variety of lamps and sconces are stunning though, and would make superb conversation pieces.

Check out more imaginative steampunk lights after the break.

hulkbuster figure

This unbelievable Hulkbuster figure is coming soon from Comicave Studios. It’s one-quarter scale which makes it 4-feet-tall and it even has lights and articulation. The best part is the armor which automatically opens to reveal an Iron Man Mark 43 hiding inside. This is a prototype so the final version may differ slightly, but it’s still destined to be quite a collectible.

See it in action in the video after the break.

pebble-carpet

The first thing I thought about when I saw this super soft pebble carpet from flussdesign was that it would be perfect for a tavern-style gaming room like this one or this one.

Each pebble is hand felted using sheep, lama, and alpaca wool which surrounds a foam core, so you get a very natural look since each stone is slightly different.

Check out some up close pics after the break.
