If you’ve seen Captain America: Civil War, then you know that Spider-Man takes notice of how Cap’s shield doesn’t really follow the rules of physics. The shield effortlessly bounces off walls and foes and somehow always manages to make it right back into the hands of Steve Rogers. And now one fan has made some of the magic of Captain America’s shield a reality with the use of electromagnets.
Find out how electromagnets help complete a real Captain America shield below. Read More »
Unfortunately, geneticists haven’t figured out how to bring dinosaurs back from extinction just yet. Or perhaps they figured it out awhile ago, but they’re just not telling anybody for feat that someone would actually try to make Jurassic Park, or even Jurassic World, a reality. Instead, people have opted to just take on exotic pets like snakes, turtles, ferrets and more.
Now one fan has decided to combine his love for one of his exotic pets with his love for Steven Spielberg‘s modern classic, and the result is a tiny version of Jurassic Park that a tortoise named Louie calls home. Check out the Jurassic Park tortoise house below. Read More »
Late last year, we highlighted some of today’s popular, contemporary movies that had been given a makeover as if they were released on VHS tapes, appearing just as they would on the shelf of a Blockbuster video store. Now another artist has done the same thing, but his designs are a bit more impressive since they involve actually transferring the movies in question to VHS.
Off Track Outlet has designed some impressive modern movie VHS covers for films such as Star Wars: The Force Awakens, Deadpool, Jurassic World, Big Hero 6 and even Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Check them out below! Read More »
There are some very talented master builders out there who create the most impressive custom LEGO creations. We love featuring impressive LEGO creations, especially ones that have a chance at getting turned into real LEGO sets like that recent Short Circuit set that puts Johnny Five together or the Voltron set that you can actually assemble five separate pieces to form the robot.
Now we have a truly stunning LEGO Star Destroyer that puts the official LEGO version of the Imperial vehicle (seen in the foreground above) to shame. We don’t know how many pieces were made to create this one, but it has three interior levels, houses some TIE Interceptors and an Imperial shuttle, and is an absolute marvel of LEGO engineering. See the custom LEGO Star Destroyer after the jump. Read More »
The LEGO Technic line allows master builders to create working robots and other creations with moving parts, but now a custom LEGO Ideas project is hoping to bring a cinematic robot to life with building blocks, just without all the complicated moving parts.
Johnny Five is the lovable, curious robot from the ’80s classic Short Circuit. And while technology would certainly allow for someone to build their own Johnny Five pretty easily today, it would be much easier if you were able to build a LEGO Johnny Five. That’s what master builder PepaQuin is hoping happens with his custom creation, and the good news is this project is already on its way to hopefully becoming an official set. Check out the Short Circuit LEGO below! Read More »
There are some very passionate pop culture fans out there in the world. Some of them like to show their love by amassing collectibles, others like to dress up as their favorite characters. But it takes a real dedicated crew to build a homemade version of an iconic cinematic vehicle. Plenty of people have created their own Back to the Future time machines or A-Team vans, but a group of friends decided they wanted to bring a vehicle from the world of Pixar Animation into the real world.
Some very talented people decided to create a working replica of the Pizza Planet Truck originally seen in Toy Story. Not only is their creation from 2011 impressive and as screen accurate as possible, but once they were done with it, they drove it to Pixar’s studios and impressed some of the very people who created the real Pizza Planet truck.

Even though Obi-Wan Kenobi finds blasters to be uncivilized compared to the more elegant weapon that is the lightsaber, for a short while, a blaster is all Rey has to defend herself when the First Order is in pursuit in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Han Solo hands the weapon over to Rey, and even though it doesn’t fare well against the Kylo Ren’s Force powers and cross guard lightsaber, she’s still a pretty good shot with it, and the weapon certainly packs a decent punch.
Now if you’re looking to build your own version of Rey’s blaster, either for cosplay or for a little prop replica display in your office, a professional prop maker has assembled a homemade version of the gun that you can build yourself if you have the right tools.

There are plenty of Star Wars fans out there who have made their own custom lightsabers, blasters, Jedi robes, LEGO sets, action figures, and countless more creations. But one fan has put them all to shame by building a life-size AT-ST (or All Terrain Scout Transport) from Return of the Jedi in his backyard. Thankfully, he doesn’t live in an area where Ewoks have smashed its head with a couple swinging logs, so it’s still standing strong, despite the fact that the Empire has fallen.

Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Earlier this year, an official LEGO set was revealed for the 1966 Batman secret lair known as the Batcave. It comes with Adam West and Burt Ward as Batman and Robin, as well as their signature Batmobile, Batcycle and Batcopter. It’s on sale now and you can see photos of it right here. But one fan decided he wanted his own modern LEGO Batcave, and he really went all out for it.
Master builder Dan Glasure created an 18,000-piece LEGO Batcave that is extremely intricate and detailed, including vehicles like the Batmobile and Batjet from Tim Burton’s feature films. But even more impressive is the fact that it exists under an equally intricate LEGO Wayne Manor. See some photos of the custom creation below. Read More »
There’s plenty of impressive cosplay out there, but the reason people pay attention to former Mythbusters co-host Adam Savage is because he makes a fun game out of it. Every year for San Diego Comic-Con, Mr. Savage dresses up in some kind of detailed, professionally made costume and challenges fans to find him. Usually he reserves these costumes only for San Diego, the biggest convention in the country, but since he was personally invited to the inaugural Silicon Valley Comic-Con recently, he decided to have some fun.
Adam Savage dressed up as Hellboy, which was pretty cool since the first time he went incognito for Comic-Con was back in 2009, and he also dressed like Hellboy then. However, it would be cheating if he reused the same costume, so you’ll have to see how he changed things up after the jump. See how the impressive Adam Savage Hellboy costume came together after the jump. Read More »
