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

iron-man-floating-figure

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.

For The Die Hard Fans: A Pokemon Engagement Ring

A2-325x325_Fotor_Collage

So I’ll be the first to admit, I’m a little out of touch on the whole Pokemon thing. Do people still play this stuff? Is it, like, a thing now? Because we’re thinking it would have to be for some jeweller somewhere to think it worth his while to develop a Pokemon Engagement ring. And to be so passionate about its description.

Somewhere in our bedrooms was a small pile of dead AA batteries from the sleepless nights with our faces glowing in the screen of capturing all of the existing 150 little evolving creatures we pit in a fight to the faint. Nowadays the batteries are built into all electronic devices and the 150 has been upped to a zillion billion. Nothing says “I Choose You” like our Trainer’s Band.

The engagement ring has a twisted shank with a row of created green gems showing our good health at the beginning of a battle, the other row of created topaz stones shows our experience. All variations of this ring has a Created Ruby and Cubic Zirconium cut in half to create the symmetrical design in the center. Our Genuine Gems options have Authentic Peridot and Authentic Aquamarine “AA” quality.

Prices start at $197 for the cubic zirconium versions and going up to $849 for real gems.

High-top Sneakers With Poop Emoji Pattern

Screen Shot 2015-01-14 at 1.58.33 PM

We are no experts on fashion, so we don’t know if we should be getting excited at the sight of shoes with a poop emoji pattern. But we are, and we’re unapologetic. These Poo Emoji Light Wing Franklin Shoes from Betabrand look like regular shoes from far, but look closely and you can’t miss everyone’s favourite ‘wtf emoji’.

– Lightweight Tyvek may look and feel like paper, but it’s also insanely strong.
– Poliyou rubber insoles provide superior support and comfort while fighting foot-odor-causing bacteria.
– Water-resistant, yet eminently breathable.

“TYVEK® is a flash-spun synthetic developed by DUPONT. It looks and feels like paper, but is insanely strong, super lightweight, water resistant, and not to mention breathable.

The coolest part about the material is the ability to print any graphic you want on it and send it through the printer. The only limit is your imagination on the graphics you want put on any of the LIGHT WING series shoes. This is the first release of the LIGHT WING FRANKLIN HIGH-TOP.” You can get a pair for $88, with worldwide shipping.

DIY Heisenberg Paper Snowflake? DIY Heisenberg Paper Snowflake!

Screen Shot 2014-12-23 at 1.28.36 PM

We’re going to download the below PDF, print it, then set out to cut all the pieces. What we should end up with is one badass Heisenberg Paper Snowflake, of Breaking Bad fame. What we’ll actually end up with will be a mix between a saltshaker and a triangle; arts and crafts were never our forté. That said, maybe you kids can do one better with a pair of scissors. Or an Exacto knife. Whatever the means taken, we’d really love for some of our readers to pull this off.

Rebel Alliance and Galactic Empire Bags Keep The Merch Fever Alive

star-wars-bags-4

Perhaps even more impressive than the visual and auditory marvels that await us in the upcoming Star Wars sequel is the unstoppable train of merchandising opportunities that’s currently rolling through the marketplace. Take the above travel bags as an example. They’re actually kind of cool, featuring a hook that lets you hang them up on a hotel door somewhere and easily access your things. There’s one for the Galactic Empire, and another for the Rebel Alliance. They’re both neat, and cost next to nothing at $35, but you’ll have to wait until January 2015 to get your hands on them.

The Anatomy Of Shows

anatomy-of-shows

It’s no secret that TV shows follow a formula. Ever wonder what it is, for various shows? This is John Atkinson’s take on that. We think it’s particularly accurate, regardless of how cynical you think we might be. And that right there, is the reason we download or stream anything we decide to watch.

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.
