It is only in fiction that people can get away with using giant swords for real weapons, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have replicas in real life. Of course they’d be worse than useless in combat, but who cares when they look so awesome. Mike Schropp made this Final Fantasy VII Buster sword replica out of a whole lot of wood, and finished it to give it this magnificent look.
Commissioned by Sony, designer John “Wilhelm” Dunn converted a Vaio F into a cool Steampunk machine. Named eCog Mercury, the machine mod is finished in birch plywood trim, with typewriter like retro key caps, and a sprinkling of copper and gauges. It also includes non-functional gauges and steel pipes that serve the purpose of being wires and drawer pulls.
Star Wars and Transformers may be universes apart, but logic obviously cannot stop Hasbro from mixing the two up. Behold, the mighty Darth Vader who transforms into Death Star when needed. We can only imagine how tiny a Darth Vader Death Star would be, or how gigantic Darth Vader could be. Maybe he would beat the crap out of Galactus.
The transforming Darth Vader sells for $130. Or you could have something on the lines of Darth Vader that transforms into a Class III Star Destroyer for ~$33. The force isn’t strong with this one.
These fan art illustrations imagine Harry Potter characters in the world of manga. We will take this moment to imagine how very weird and awkward a Potter manga could be. Or, how awesome it could be. And somehow we can’t really find good in these cute characters, even though there is nothing visibly wrong with them.
