Alien Facehugger Leash Needs To Be Ours

alien-facehugger-dog-leash-1

Although we’ll have to buy a dog first. And we better make that an all black dog, because as cool as this leash is, the FaceHugger itself is attached to a black harness that will ruin the illusion if tied to anything but a black canine. That aside, this is one awesome leash. The alien is made of airbrushed foam, and the harness ties up with velcro. It fits smallish dogs, ranging between 15-35 pounds in size. It’s also pretty darn expensive at $150, but we bet you’ll be the only one in the neighbourhood with something like this and are likely to be quite the hit at the dog park…

2015 Is Upon Us, Might As Well Get A Flux Capacitor Wristwatch

flux-capacitor-watch

Who wears wristwatches anymore? No one, but don’t tell Apple that. Still, if you fancy yourself old school and don’t plan on getting a smartwatch, you might want to take a look at this cool Flux Capacitor watch instead. With 2015 (the year that Back to the Future II mostly takes place in) right around the corner, it seems fitting to consider its purchase. It has an LED flux capacitor in the middle, looks ok, and tells the time in an obtuse manner that may add to its charm in the eyes of some.

Reading the time on the Back to the Future Flux Capacitor Wristwatch is pretty fun. Press the bottom button and then get ready to count lights. Time is divided into hours, minutes first digit, minutes second digit – so it looks confusing, but is very easy to read. (Example: 10 lights, 5 lights, 3 lights = 10:53 – and it repeats). At the same time, the time circuit LCD display will show you the date.

We actually have a soft spot for these types of watches, having been big fans of Tokyoflash for a while. And at $50, this Flux Capacitor timepiece is about half the price of pretty much any Japanese equivalent.

The Website Helps You Pick What To Watch On Netflix

whatisonnetflix

WhatIsOnNetflix is a great website that ranks Netflix movies in descending order of their IMDB or Rotten Tomatoes ratings. It’s updated once a week, and lets you drill down by genre, as well as search for a specific movie. Also, you’re able to click on each movie and be taken to its page on Rotten Tomatoes or IMDB.

It’s little limited since it shows you the top 50 movies or so, and doesn’t access lower rated stuff, but that’s ok, because why would you want to watch that anyway? Right?

In any case, check it out.

Awesome: We Are Handmade Little Groot Figurines

Groot Handmade Figurines

There’s no doubt about it: Groot made quite the impression as one of the leads in Guardians of the Galaxy, and he isn’t even human! He doesn’t say much, so he lets his actions do the talking instead–and if you saw the hit movie, then you’ll get what I mean. It was only a matter of time before little dancing Groots made their way to store shelves, both real and digital, and these particular figurines by by Kelsey Wailes are nothing short of awesome.

Her first batch features little Groot in 13 different poses, each one showcasing a particular dance pose and facial expression.

Awesome Ads: Tap Your Beer Bottle, Unlock a Movie

Movie Unlocker

There’s nothing left to do with the bottle once all the beer is gone…or is there? Russian design studio Heads and Hands came up with a fun and unusual way to reward those who drink Grolsch beer by incorporating a movie unlocker right onto the bottle. After taking the final swig, beer drinkers can tap the empty bottle onto their phone, tablet, or laptop and enjoy a movie on the house (or is it, on the beer?)

The whole thing is possible thanks to iBeacon bluetooth technology and the Movie Unlocker app. A beacon is actually hidden under the Grolsch beer cap, which sends out a bluetooth signal to the device that in turn connects to the server to unlock the movie.

You don’t even need to have a top-of-the-line projector. All you’ll need is this £15.99 (about $27) cardboard projector and your smartphone, and you’re good to go.

Great Scott! This Flux Capacitor USB Car Charger Will Juice Up Two Devices At Once

flux

There’s something about movie-themed merchandise that makes it almost irresistible to make movie-related puns and references. They’re usually really tacky, unless the writers are top notch. I’m bottom notch… so I’m not finding an elegant way to tie 88mph, Great Scott, and “Roads … where we’re going, we don’t need roads” all in one article. So I’ll just tell you that this USB car charger plugs into your cigarette lighter socket, charges two devices at once, and looks like the flux capacitor from BTTF. It’s $25.

LEGO Set To Launch Massive 1,869 Piece Batman Tumbler Kit

Screen Shot 2014-07-24 at 12.07.40 PM

Chris Nolan’s Tumbler was but one of the many highlights from the latest Batman trilogy, but boy was it memorable. So much so that it makes perfect sense for LEGO to create a replica kit. This, however, is no ordinary LEGO kit. You’re looking at a massive 1,869 pieces that assemble into a 5 inch tall, and 15 inches long version of the car. It comes with two limited edition minifigs of the Joker and Batman, so this might add yet more appeal to a kit that, despite everything, will still have to justify its astronomical price tag: $199. It’ll be available in September.

They’re Out to Get You: Horror Movie Action Figures

Horror Movie Action Figures

You probably shouldn’t get kids any one of these action figures–unless you want to give them the gift of nightmares. The figures from Funko’s Horror Series features some of the most horror-inducing characters from incredibly popular horror franchises, like Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and Pinhead.

Each one is only 3.75 inches tall, but think of that as being almost four inches more than you can take of pure horror. That Sam figure is particularly creepy.

They retail for $10 each.
