Back in July of last year Capcom teased a truly magnificent wearable Mega Man helmet replica. And while it made appearances at Comic-Con and other geeky events since then, ThinkGeek has finally added the prop to its online store so you can finally do Mega Man cosplay right.
Zac Mihajlovic—a 29-year-old Batman fan from Camden, Australia—spent two years building this impressive and fully-functional 1989 Batmobile. The car is road legal and he uses it mainly to make sick kids happy—together with the Make-A-Wish foundation.
We want scale models of NASA's Curiosity Rover, and we want them now.
Just sit and listen. Give it some time. At first it may just sound like a repetitive piano loop. A minute in, it opens up and starts to get a little weird. Don't run off! It won't hit you right away. Somewhere around the 3:30 mark it all comes together and hits you with its holy shit moment.
A 17-year-old pregnant teen lost her flight when TSA agents insisted she had to check her bag, which has a replica gun attached to it. For once, I'm going to defend the TSA: this girl is a naff assclown.
Using a transparent Lego brick technique I can only describe as amazing, builder Sean Kenney has recreated a reflected skyline in the "glass" on this 10-foot, 65,000-brick Trump International Hotel and Tower monstrosity.
ZTE employee Wang XiaoKang was so inspired by the Iron Man movie that he built his own replica outfit and wore it to work one day.
Recently I was invited to, and attended, a lightsaber fight in a park. The organizer supplied the entire battle with lightsabers from her own collection. I took the opportunity to ask her opinion on the best online saber sources.
I was researching the upcoming Gifts for Space Nerds Like Me guide when, among the flight jackets and $100,000 Omega Apollo 11 wristwatches, I found that you can buy your own 1:1 replica of the space shuttle.

A tiny, non-functional camera. It sounds dumb. But then you look at it. And it is so cute. And—the meticulous detail! Pick it up. Pose your gerbil with it. Now your gerbil is a photographer. Not dumb anymore!
Fallout megafan Ryan Palser has made a fantastic replica of the Fallout 3's A3-21 Plasma Rifle. The attention to detail is splendid, and we hope he makes more. Ryan, if you're reading—Brotherhood of Steel helmet next, please!
I have to admit that this $1 million 700hp Batmobile, built over a 1973 Lincoln Continental chassis, looks amazing. Even without seeing its interior, which apparently is loaded with gadgets, from rear-view cameras to a plasma TV.
A six-inch furry toy that vibrates and makes the genuine cooing sounds of the Tribbles from Star Trek... probably something to not buy if you've got predatory cats around the place.

This $499 Tumbler from The Dark Knight is confusing. On the one hand, it's $499, but on the other hand, it's a 1:6 replica of what Batman's been driving in the last two movies, PLUS it's even big enough for you to fit your 12-inch action figures in.
