Available as a pre-order from Entertainment Earth this grumpy cat plushie is pretty cool.
This is pretty cool, a Lego Technic construction that feeds in a piece of paper, folds it into a paper airplane, then fires the plane off to explore the skies. Or hit a wall… Or flop ineffectually to the ground… Who knows? Who cats cares?
There is a Proposal over at LEGO’s suggestion site for a LEGO Macross (Robotech) Veritech VF-1 Valkyrie complete with armour!
The Fricking thing actually transforms!
Has an arsenal of weapons:
And just looks pretty damn cool…
Here is a video of it transforming:
You might remember the Cat Bus from My Neighbour Totoro (Tonari No Totoro), it’s quite serendipitous that I should find this today as I’m going to go see the latest Studio Ghibli movie (From Up Poppy Hill) tomorrow at the Glasgow Film Festival.

I often find my self thinking of somthing cool and then Googling it in the vain hope that it exists, that’s how I foudn this lovely Totoro matryoshka doll by *Blackmago on deviantART.
It goes from Totoro all the way to the soot sprites, although strictly speaking Totoro should be inside the Cat Bus I’m going to allow for artistic liceence in this instance as Totoro is the main character of the film.
So I was looking for the original source for the above image by Wes Talbott, and I stumbled onto something wonderful. Apparently Lego have a site where people can suggest and vote on new Lego sets and collaborations. If a project gets 10,000 votes it will be submitted to Lego for review. On this page I found that there is a submission for a Lego Zelda! And it’s reached the the required amount of support to be considered by Lego!
Someone also has designs up for a Lego The Guild:
and Lego Final Fantasy:
UPDATE: THERE ARE TWO LEGO ZELDA PROJECTS ON THAT SITE!
The guy who is working on the second Lego Zelda is also working on renders for a Lego Super Mario Brothers but it’s still early days on that…
This Lego Pipe Planter by H.Y. Leung is pretty cool, it’s made to look just like a pipe from Super Mario Brothers and the blockiness of the Lego makes it look that little bit more 8-Bit.
Also check out this Lego pencil, by the looks of things it’s actually a mechanical pencil and you can write with it!
He’s also Made a Lego paper Lantern which is semi opaque and lets light through.
If that’s not cool enough for you check out his other works by clicking on the thumbnails below:
This is why it pays to pay attention to the incoming links to your blog, I noticed that someone had posted a link to the LEGO GameBoy Transformer I posted a while back on the GameFAQs forum, someone else has pointed out that the guy who made it has not posted a how to with a complete part list on Instructables.
What do you get if you try to re-imagine the cast of the original Star Wars Trilogy as Cyber Punk Hackers? Artist Sillof has done just that. He’s also done a 2 series of steam punk, a 50’s TV science fiction serial, a Wild West, and a medieval set toys as well as Samurai and WWII sets…
