Pepsi Is Releasing A Limited Edition ‘Pepsi Perfect’, The Soda from BTTF II


In a few short days, October 21st 2015 will arrive. That happens to be the day Marty McFly arrived in the “future”, where he was welcomed with a laundry list of then-futuristic innovations that mostly failed to come to market. Except of course for those that didn’t, because of a marketing tie-in from some clever company. This time it’s Pepsi, and they’re releasing a very limited edition of Pepsi Perfect, the soda you see in one of the scenes in the movie.

Fans located in the U.S. can get their hands on 1 of 6,500 Pepsi Perfect bottles, each outfitted in a special collectible case. The 16.9 oz. bottles will contain Pepsi Made with Real Sugar and will sell for $20.15.

Well, that’s a lot of dollars to pay for something you probably won’t even drink because you realize it’s a collectible and might be wroth a couple extra dollars on eBay in 15 years from now or something. Then again, it’s a collectible, so if you’re a BTTF fan just suck it up and pony up.

That Bike From The TRON Movie Will Soon Be Up For Auciton

Screen Shot 2015-04-02 at 5.23.19 PM

You’re looking at a fully functioning replica of the bike used in the 2010 movie TRON:Legacy. Even if the movie wasn’t exactly a stellar flick, it has spawned countless pop culture references in the half-decade since its release. This particular bike was built for “the Andrews Collection, one of America’s biggest and best car collections, most of which is currently being sold at auction.”

96 volt, direct-drive electric motor with lithium batteries and a computer-controlled throttle, rebound and compression damping with spring-preload front suspension and rigid rear suspension, and front and rear hydraulic brakes. This custom Tron tribute boasts a very low seat height of 28.5 inches, making it easy to ride even at low speeds. The motorcycle is finished in black with a white stripe and boasts an imposing stance to match its performance.

It was only ever ridden around the Andrews Collection’s facilities to ensure it’s still in working order, so it’s in an as-new state. The auction will be held on May 2nd at a Sotheby’s location, with a $25,000-$40,000 starting bid and no reserve. That means you could snatch it for even less… if it just so happens that no one else is interested in it, which seems unlikely.

Hit the jump for a bunch more pics.

Watch What Happens When This DeLorean iPhone Case Reaches 88mph


Remember that Batmobile iPhone case from a week ago? Well, retailer Bandai is back with another cool case, and this time it’s a DeLorean. Right in time for 2015’s BTTF2 “future”, the case lights up when you get a call, and various ports let you access common buttons as well as create an opening for the camera. So that means your phone will remain mostly functional while you can still proclaim to the world “well, damn, I may not have a hoverboard like I was promised, but at least I got my DeLorean phone.” Which is totally not something anyone would say, and is just filler fluff we had to write because there’s really not much else to say about the $50 case.

“It’s a $50 DeLorean iPhone 6 case that lights up and stuff.”

That would have done it.

Hasbro To Launch A Make-Your-Own Line Of Lightsabers


It’s pretty clear there’s a new Star Wars movie in the works because the merchandising machine is starting to run full steam. Hasbro has announced a cool line of lightsaber toys that can be customized in many ways, allowing children young and old alike to create lightsabers that are as weird as they’d be potentially lethal to the person who wields them.

The main Jedi Master Lightsaber set (for ages 4 and up, $49.99 includes a lightsaber with lights and electronic sounds, a pair of lightdaggers, an expansion hilt and a variety of connectors.

From there, kids can mIx and match from three other assortments with connectors and lightsaber blades tied to various characters. The electronic lightsaber ($19.99) comes in Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker flavors, the foam lightsaber ($14.99) has Yoda, Vader and Luke variants, and the extend lightsaber ($9.99) offers something for Luke, Vader and Anakin Skywalker fans.

The line was on display at New York’s Toy Fair last week and will be launching this fall, in time for the release of the new movie in December.

Floating Iron Man Suit Is The Coolest Useless Toy Money Can Buy


We’re not sure it’s ever smart to spend a large chunk of change on a toy, but if you have $170 burning a hole in your pocket, the Iron Man Mark II Special Floating Edition sure looks cool. It’s part of the Egg Attack series, and floats in mid-air thanks to a combination of attracting and repulsing magnets.

True to the key features of the Egg Attack series, Iron Man’s every detail is meticulously crafted, including the armor, joints, and flying mode air deflector. The Iron Man 3 Mark II Magnetic floating version’s main body is painted with high-quality metal coating, showcasing Mark II’s steel-like armor. High-luminance LED light is hidden within the eye, chest reactor, and feet, which stays true to the night flying mode in the Iron Man movie.

The Egg Attack Iron Man 3 Mark II Magnetic Floating Version is shipped with a glowing magnetic levitation base, a customized battery case (fits 8 AA batteries, sold separately), and a protective sheet.

So that’s it, $170 for an awesome levitating Iron Man toy. Watch the video; it’s hard not to want it.

Alien Facehugger Leash Needs To Be Ours


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


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 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.
