This is the second day in a row I was surprised by something Skyrim-related. The first was the inclusion of the game in the the trailer for Nintendo’s upcoming Switch console (though, weirdly, Bethesda was quick to comment that the title hasn’t actually been confirmed for the system). The second occurred today when I headed on over to Merchoid to check out their new releases. Lo and behold, Skyrim Monopoly is coming in March 2017. The description reads: [click to continue…]
Imagine my surprise when I was driving down the highway at 88mph and my keys disappeared.

That’s right—these Planetary String Lights are practically screaming to be used as part of a space-themed Christmas tree.
Strung along an 11 foot long cord, this set of 10 glowing orbs includes the Sun, Mercury, Venus, Earth, Mars, Jupiter, Saturn, Uranus, Neptune, and (yes, even) Pluto. The glass bulbs are painted to look like each of the celestial bodies and can be replaced with a C7 candelabra bulb if there’s a galactic mishap. We also carry a set of replacement bulbs because, well, things happen.
Yes, it’s nice to know that if a planet spontaneously explodes, it’s an easy fix. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
Just when you thought it was safe to unfreeze your credit card, Funko drops two new Pop lines for Ash vs Evil Dead and Cowboy Bebop.
The Ash vs Evil Dead Pops have Ash complete with chainsaw hand, Pablo, Kelly, and Ruby (Is this the first time Lucy Lawless has been Popped?)
But it’s the Bebop Pops that stole my heart. Spike, Jet, Faye, and Ed all look amazing. I’m hoping we’ll see an Ein somewhere down the road. Check out the entire lineup below. [click to continue…]
This line of official Star Wars bedroom furniture from Rooms To Go makes me want to be a kid again…or make me wish they’d make these styles in queen or king size. I mean, who wouldn’t love an X-Wing, Millennium Falcon, or landspeeder bed?
Some have bookcases, some are trundle beds, all of them are awesome and I want one. There’s even a TIE Fighter desk in the collection. Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]
I assume that you’ve already taken the sorting quiz on Pottermore, so you can take pride in your designated house with these crystal sorting hats from Etsy seller PottaMasterCrafter (the same guy behind the popular crystal Poke Balls).
Each crystal hat weighs over four pounds and features the crest and LED lights in the color of your chosen house. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
You’ve seen Poké Balls, but never like this. Jasper Hams of MasenkoProps has crafted this “Monster Ball” display from polyurethane and aluminium. The ball has a visible interior which looks sufficiently high-tech, and comes in a neat display case emblazoned with the logo of Silph Co., one of the technology giants of the Pokémon world.
This piece is, of course, non-functional – you’re not going to be able to catch parrots and the like using this thing. The hinge doesn’t move, and the Poké Ball is designed to stay mounted to the base and inside its container, so it’s for ornamental display only. But gosh, what a display.
You can purchase it directly from Jasper’s Etsy store for $133.55 USD, though as they’re made to order we expect there’ll be a bit of a wait thanks to the press attention. Check out more photos of this magnificent piece below. [click to continue…]
It appears that Jawas have grown tired of the desert, deciding instead to hang out on your lush green lawn. Curiously, all of the other lawn ornaments in the neighborhood have gone missing. Rumor has it that a Monster Gnome is in the works, and everyone is a little on edge about it. The fact that your 16-inch Jawa has glowing (solar powered) eyes isn’t helping.

Ashley Wood’s awesomely stylized Sixth-Scale Black Widow figure from ThreeA was unveiled last month, but it can be pre-ordered now for a whopping $159.99 with shipping slated for June 2017. It stands at 13-inches tall and features 24 articulation points, a trench coat (for spy stuff!), two pistols, and an interchangeable head with a cool mask. Check out more pics below.

It appears that the artists and writers at Bungie up and decided to make a children’s book based on Destiny called, appropriately enough, D Is For Destiny. It’s a clever strategy. The time that you should be spending with your kids instead of playing video games can now be spent talking to your kids about video games. Brilliant!
From the world of Destiny, this rhyming alphabet book created by the artists and writers at Bungie takes young readers on a voyage through a universe of adventure. From Four-Armed Fallen to the Mysteries of Mercury and the Moon, D is for Destiny makes exploring the far reaches of the solar system as easy as A, B, C.
Check out some pics from the book below. [click to continue…]
