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.

Pull Up To The Green Like What? That’s A Tumbler Golf Cart, Son

Screen Shot 2014-05-26 at 11.35.58 PM

We gotta give Hammacher Schlemmer credit for stocking the most outlandish vehicles on their website, alongside other mundane items like sandals and iPhone cases. This time you’re looking at a golf cart that’ll turn a head or three next time you tee off. Inspired by Batman’s car from the 2005-2012 films, this Tumbler Golf Cart is just awesome and not short on features:

The cart rolls on six course-friendly tires—the rear four are smaller 28″ versions of the originals from the movie vehicle. Powered by a 6-horsepower, battery-powered electric go-cart motor, the cart can reach 38 mph for quick follow-up shots or to retrieve an errant Bat-slice. Its sleek, all-black alloy body replicates the movie vehicle’s rear afterburner while its twin aerodynamic wings fold around the passenger compartment to protect occupants from incoming golf balls. Its 4-link rear suspension provides a smooth ride over fairways, rough, and paths, while rear disc brakes provide confident stops. With adjustable leather seats, cup holders, iPad stand, and lights

You do realize, of course, that if you’re interested in being that guy, you’re going to have to pony up a pretty penny. $35,000 worth, to be exact.

RunPee App Lets You Know When to Run and Pee During a Movie

RunPee App

Your doctor might’ve advised against holding your pee in, but that’s probably something you’d rather do than rush off to the bathroom in the middle of a particularly good movie. So here’s something that can spare you from unnecessary grief and save your bladder in the process: the RunPee app.

It’s basically a database that lets you know which parts of the movie you can miss without actually missing substantial action.

The RunPee tagline says it all: Because movie theaters don’t have pause buttons. The RunPee app will give you a list of 1-to-4 moments in each movie when you can run and pee. We also let you know if there is anything during or after the end credits that you should stick around for.

You might stumble across some spoilers along the way, so tap carefully. The app is available for iPhoneAndroid and Windows phones for $0.99.
