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.

Go Animal This Halloween: Eagle Mask and Talon Gloves

Eagle Mask and Talon Gloves

 

If you’re too lazy to get a proper costume or make one this Halloween, then go for something outrageous instead. Case in point: this bald eagle mask and eagle talon gloves that will (sort of) transform you into a man-eagle. Both are made from latex and should fit most adult heads and hands, as long as your measurements fall within the average.

Finish your look by putting on a shirt bearing our flag’s design. And if you can be bothered to, make a set of wings to go with it.

This Star Trek Phaser Doubles As A TV Remote

star-trek-phaser

It’s one thing to buy a novelty replica of a TV prop. It’s quite another to buy a Star Trek Phaser so faithful to the original that it was made by 3D scanning the last remaining prop from the TV series. It’s also fully licensed by CBS, and doubles as a programmable infrared remote with which you can control your TV, iPod docks and many other gadgets. And when it’s not changing channels, this Phaser plays a wide range of original sound effects from the series. It also vibrates and lights up each time it’s “fired”, and features a removable side door to reveal an illuminated dilithium crystal power cell. It’s made from a matte nickel plated die cast, and comes with a museum-quality metal stand, with hidden magnetic catch. The carrying case is made from rugged ABS plastic, printed with a blank name plate ready for you to make it your own. The only thing you might have trouble doing is vaporizing rocks and alien life forms with it, but at £119.95 (roughly $200), we’d say that’s good enough.

Revenge Is A Dish Best Served With A Horse Head Pillow

horse_head_pillow_1

The Godfather fans, check this out. It’s a severed horse-head-stuffed plushy/pillow thing. That’s what we’d like to think of as “the perfect gift”, but of course only for those with a macabre sense of humour or with an unhealthy obsession with the movie. For all of $45 (or $35 unstuffed), you can own a 19 inch by 33 inch replica of one of the most iconic scenes in Hollywood history.
