lego slave 1

January 1, 2015 can’t get here soon enough. That’s the day we can finally purchase the Lego UCS (Ultimate Collector Series) Slave I. The pics of the Lego take on Boba Fett’s preferred mode of intergalactic transport were enough to get us really excited about it, but Lego has recently released the following video which features Hans Schlömer showing it off. Look how huge it is!

hobbit safety video

It’s been awhile since Air New Zealand released it’s fantastic Hobbit-themed in-flight safety video. With the release of the final film in The Hobbit trilogy, the time was ripe to make a new one so they’ve created what they’re billing as, “The Most Epic Safety Video Ever Made.” It features all the usual safety tips, but it also has cameos by the actors from the film in one of the few safety videos that everyone will actually watch and enjoy.

wedding tardis

When it comes to geek wedding proposals, this one’s definitely up there in the “doing it right” section. Not only did redditor Muffinman5423 build a TARDIS, but he put the proposal on the TARDIS itself and then gave his fiancé a key to the TARDIS along with the ring.

I’m also going to give him extra points for TARDIS placement.

It’s a very sweet video and you can check it out after the break.

hover

Ever since Marty McFly rode a hoverboard in Back to the Future the world has been waiting for this future technology to be a reality. We have Jill and Greg Henderson of Hendo Hoverboard to thank for being the first to actually make it happen. The California couple has launched a kickstarter for their invention and if fully funded they will be shipping out what they’re calling a “Whitebox” next summer.

The developer kit will include hover engines with the boards themselves following a few months later. It’s not quite as good as what Marty flew, since it will only work over a non-ferrous metal surface (much like a MagLev train), but it’s the first real progress towards the hoverboard we all dream of.

replica

Last weekend’s episode of Doctor Who showed us the TARDIS in “Siege Mode”—a last resort means of defense. It basically turned the TARDIS into a little Gallifreyan cube, and now you can own a replica of its latest incarnation. This comes from Rubbertoe Replicas who makes all sort of officially licensed Doctor Who props. The beautiful little cube measures 7.5 cm square and comes packed in a little black box to keep it safe.

Lots of neighborhoods have Halloween decorating contests to see who can come up with the most impressive display. This one, with a giant pirate shipping crashing through the house, wins them all. It’s the work of brothers Ricky and Tony Rodriguez who transformed their Mom’s house in Lorain, Ohio over the course of two weeks. The whole thing is great, but the way they made it look like the boat actually broke all the boards on the house is really cool. I’d love to see what these guys could think up for a Christmas display.

It’s important to study if you hope to get good grades, but a lot of parents spend far too much time trying to convince their kids to crack open their books. Here’s the perfect solution. Watch as Ian McKellen breaks out his best Gandalf to the delight of the kids at Chew Valley School in Bristol. If he can’t convince these kids, then no one can.

X-men Days of Future Past Wolverine

Sideshow Collectibles and Hot Toys have revealed the new X-Men: Days of Future Past Wolverine Sixth Scale Collectible Figure and it’s seriously badass.

The figure has over 30 points of articulation and a new head sculpt gets Jackman’s facial hair and fierce expression just right. Add the new battle armor, the boots and those claws and this figure is downright perfect.

Slated for August of 2015, it’s open for pre-orders now.

Head after the break to see more pictures.

zombie cabin 1

Are you doing enough to prepare for the inevitable zombie apocalypse? You can go above and beyond by purchasing and assembling a zombie proof log cabin. Tiger Log Cabins is offering a ZFC-1 (Zombie Fortification Cabin) to all those concerned about the possibility of undead attacks. It comes with a ten year anti-zombie guarantee, reinforced slit windows, walls, and doors, an arsenal storage unit, garden section to make sure you don’t starve, a toilet system, a living room with entertainment, and more. You’ll stay safe from zombies and never be bored; I call that a win.

You can customize the 44′ x 30′ cabin which will run a whopping $112,800 for the base model. Extras include installation, water cannons, flame throwers, riot gear, solar panels and more. If the zombies never show up, at least you have the best possible place to host viewing parties for The Walking Dead.

See more photos of the cabin’s exterior and interior after the break.
