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.

captain-picard-facepalm-world-cup-logo

Oh, the LOLs that were had after being told that the FIFA World Cup Brazil logo looks a whole lot like that face palming Captain Picard. And now that we’ve seen it, that’s literally all we’re seeing.

Anyway, on to more relevant news.

Want: Star Wars X-Wing Knife Block

x-wing-knife-block

We’re going to go ahead and speculate that the Star Wars franchise will print money until the end of time. Not only is there yet another movie instalment in the works, but the onslaught of merchandise is seemingly never ending. Just look at the above Star Wars X-Wing Knife Block. It’s awesome, and we want it, even though we feel guilty wanting to give even more money to people who already have too much. Oh well, the tug on our consumerist heart is strong with this one, and we’ll have to give up about $120 to get it. It comes with 5 knives: a Cook’s knife (335mm), a Bread knife (320mm), a Carving Knife (325mm), a Utility knife (235mm), and a Paring knife (195mm). This ships in August and is only available for pre-order now.

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.

Inception was a heck of a movie. Remember the totem? Yeah…

Want your own?

$3!

Incidentally, here’s a pretty convincing explanation of whether or not Cobb was still dreaming in the last scene.

Cabbage Patch Kids Knitted Hats

Cabbage-Patch-KidsInspired-Knit-Hats

If you grew up in the 80′s and now have kids, you have to do yourself a favour and get one of these. Knitted by one ‘TheLilliePad’ on Etsy, they’ll set you back between $32 and $38. Alternatively, you could buy the pattern for all of $6. Take into consideration that due to increased demand, you may end up waiting a while for them, during which you may as well take up some crocheting lessons…

DIY: Indiana Jones Monkey Brain Cake

monkey-brain-cake-1

There are very few scenes as memorable as that one where they eat monkey brain in Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom. Well… maybe also the scene where that girl sticks her arm in a hole full of bugs. Or maybe these scenes resonate with this generation because we watched the movie when young and impressionable. Whatever the case, you too can eat brains off a monkey, if only in cake form (you can do it for real too, we suppose, but that’s just, like, gross, man…). There’s a lot of work involved in the making, but there’s a link to a pretty detailed Instructables at the bottom. Halloween is just around the corner, you know…

Minions… Minions Everywhere

minions-top

Despicable Me 2 was alright. Laughs were had occasionally, but if it hadn’t been for the minions, it would have been a miss. Minions are awesome. So here you go, have at it: minions as characters from a truckload of other media franchises. Hit the jump to see all of them.
