If Greek sculptors had sci-fi movies as their muse, then these Star Wars statues would have lined the streets of Athens.

Actually, this Darth Vader statue isn’t a statue at all, but an impressive image created by French artist Travis Durden.

Durden has reimagined Star Wars characters as ancient sculptures: “Darth Resurrection,” “Storm Reader,” “General Niobides,” “Gladiator Boba,” and “Angel Yodea”.

Check out the entire collection after the break.

With the release of Fallout 4 imminent, one gamer got so excited that he decided to throw a few Disney characters to the Wastelands in these fun illustrations.

Artist Peter Slavik imagined Snow White, Alice, Ariel, Rapunzel, and Belle as well-adjusted Vault Dwellers. In fact, Snow White is still trying to talk to the animals (although I wouldn’t dare go near a mole rat for a friendly chat) and Belle is nose deep in a book passing right by a super mutant Gaston.

Check out the entire series after the break.

The limited edition Halo Needler replica from NECA looks amazing in all its motorized glory, but it comes with an intimidating price tag of $300. However, it does have some pretty spectacular features:

Complete your Spartan armor with a colossal 1:1 replica of one of Halo’s most iconic weapons! From the award-winning video game series, the Needler is now available as a limited edition, full-size 1:1 replica featuring LED lights and over a dozen motorized “crystal shards.”

When you squeeze the trigger, the crystal shards retract in sequence to simulate being fired. To reload, simply travel to the Sanghelios moon of Suban for extra crystals (or press the reset button located in the grip).

This replica is also 100% accurate to its game counterpart since NECA Toys partnered with Microsoft and 343 Studios (formerly Bungie) to create the gun directly from the 3D model used in the game.

I really just want to hold one. Forever. But yeah, $300 is pretty steep. Fortunately, you do have the BOOMco Needler option, which is only $40 (and probably a lot more fun).

Check out more images and videos of the NECA Needler in action after the break.

Artist Jackie Huang recreates characters from Disney, Marvel, and more with her unique 3D paper portraits. These stunning images literally pop off the page with perfectly colored layers.

Her intricate designs take between 10 to 40 hours to complete. She begins each piece with a sketch that she adjusts digitally, then chooses colors for cutting into each pattern. She usually goes back to add some details with paint at the very end.

Check out more of her whimsical paper art after the break.

Inspired by Mass Effect, Instructables user eggfooyoung decided to make a serious rubber band gun modeled after the M-6 Carnifex. He notes:

“Ever since I was a kid I have always wanted a rubber band gun. Growing up, my parents would never buy me one because they were afraid I would hurt myself. Now that I’m an adult, I’m old enough to make my own!

As an avid Mass Effect fan, I decided this would be a great opportunity to make one based on it. Not only is it a fun toy, but also a great prop for fans!”

Basing the design off of an M-9 rubber band gun created by YouTuber RBguns, he used a laser cutting machine to create the frame and etching details. Plus, the 13-step instructional PDF is free to download if you want to make one yourself.

Check out more pics of this rubber band shooting M-6 Carnifex after the break.

This collection by Finnish artist Jirka Väätäinen reimagines what classic Disney villains might look like in real life.

He does an amazing job of turning the exaggerated features of animated characters into realistic portraits. So much so that I’m a little creeped out. For comfort, we can always look at his earlier collection of super hot (and very realistic) Disney dudes.

After the break, take a look at the life-like faces of The Evil Queen, Hades, Ursula, Gaston, and Captain Hook.

The Altwork Station may look like a dentist’s chair, but it’s actually a programmer’s dream workstation. It allows users work in just about any position – including lying down.

Altwork, a Sonoma Valley, California-based startup company, says this chair and desk combo is designed for “high-intensity” computer users, with an intense $5,900 price tag to match (although the first run will be available at a discounted $3,900. Bargain!).

The station comes has four different modes: standing, collaboration (the screen can be turned multiple directions) regular, and focus (reclined). The company believes, through research and data regarding health benefits, that we need to move and change positions throughout the day. For professionals who are glued to a computer screen most of the day, this desk can afford the ability to stretch and move while continuing to work.

The control panel is located right on the desk, and magnets help keep the desktop peripherals in place while in the reclined setting. A lot of engineering went into this thing, something that is evident in the leg rest that folds under itself—much like a scorpion tail.

Check out more photos of the Altwork Station station along with a demo video after the break.
