Hello McFly! Anybody home? If you’re planning a trip into the future or into the past, you’ll want a jacket that will look good while adventuring with Doc Brown. Even if you aren’t going to go traveling in time, it’s a great Halloween costume. Luckily for you it’s available on ebay. It’s not the actual prop jacket from the film, but an awesome detailed recreation. Sadly, it doesn’t include the auto-size adjusting and drying modes. Looks like it’s made from actual leather though. One can only hope since the starting bid is $399.99. It goes great with your hoverboard.
This may not be the most portable home theater ever, but it conveniently keeps all of your devices in one spot so they can be stored away out of sight. The Pinel Pinel Movie Trunk boasts a Bang & Olufsen Beolab 6000 subwoofer, Two Beolab 3 speakers, BeoVision 6-26 TV and a DVD1 DVD/CD player.
You can choose from 51 flavors of different leathers, all with nickel plated brass hardware, and you even have three drawers for you to store your DVDs. Up to four dozen DVDs. No word on price yet, but I think most of us love the idea, but would want a larger TV at the expense of portability.
You can choose from many skins for your PS3, some cool, some tacky. But if you really want to feel like you are in the center of a horror movie, the Screaming Skull Protective Mask Cover may be for you. It makes your PS3 look like a screaming skull that’s trying to burst it’s way out and kill you dead. Which is totally original. I mean we haven’t seen that in a hundred movies.
It’s probably good for some Halloween gaming though. And you can tell your little brother that this is what happens to the souls of those who lose to you. The Screaming Skull Protective Mask Cover retails for only $10.99.
I feel like I’ve just been slimed with this item. Call me a dork, but the Ghostbusters movie is a classic. And I can’t think of anything better then getting the movie pre-loaded on a flash drive from PNY.
The drive offers 2GB of storage capacity. The only question I have is in regards to the format of the movie file. The 2GB drive is able to store 12 hours of video, 33 hours of music, or 1,080 pictures. No pricing info yet. Apparently this is the first time a full-length movie has been released via a USB flash drive. Why Ghostbusters? Why not!
You might have noticed that the Clone Wars movie got some pretty bad reviews. So it’s not really a surprise that they’ve been pushing all kinds of Clone Wars merchandise in an attempt to make some extra money so George Lucas can get that new flannel shirt he’s had his eye on.
This is the ISpeaker. It uses a flat panel speaker and is compatible with iPod, iPhone and other MP3 players. It features Captain Rex from the Clone Wars and seems almost as lame as the movie. Small kids might like it, but your average Star Wars geek will probaly want to pass. It’s powered by 4 AAA batteries. The Clone Wars iSpeaker is available for $19. The lightsaber stylus for the DS is only $7.99 and a lot cooler.
Check out this spoof of The Shining with Tribot as Danny and 2 Femisapiens as the twin girls. It’s great for a hearty geek laugh. After seeing this mini movie, I firmly believe that we should be re-creating all sorts of classic movies with robots. All the time. Toy robots. Go on, you know you want to click it.
I know for a fact that several nerds just crapped themselves looking at the picture above. This monstrosity is a PC Case Mod designed around the Matrix Regenerator. Some specs: Pentium 4 3.2, MSI 875P Neo Mainboard, a Solarism 17″ LCD Monitor LM1730, 1 GB Corsair CMX512 3200LL, Crucial Radeon 9800 Pro 256, and more.
It’s really a highly detailed work of art. From the creator “The Matrix: Regenerator project is the second in a series of two case mods based on The Matrix movies. The first project, The Matrix: Rebirth 8.0 was a recreation of the scene where machines are breeding humans for their electric power. Regenerator will show the second stage in that breeding process, where adult humans are plugged in to their power plants, dreaming their dream within the Matrix and providing power for the machines.”
Sony just announced that Playstation Network users will now have the ability to rent and buy movies and TV shows. They aren’t wasting any time either. The service gets switched on TONIGHT. And it’s more then just bland Sony content, with content from Fox, MGM, Lions Gate, Warner, Disney, Paramount, Turner, and Funimation. TV pricing starts at $1.99, while movies will cost $9.99 – $14.99, with rentals costing $2.99 – $5.99. The videos can even be downloaded to your PS3 and watched on multiple PSPs. Video is available in both SD and HD. Pretty nice!
Wall-E is adorable. Your Gamecube console is gathering dust. That’s right. Combine the two for one of the cutest and most adorable mods mankind has ever seen. There’s not much info on this mod, but the modder did a great job.
Wall-E looks appropriately sad. Probably because everyone has moved on to the Wii. Which brings me to my next point. Wall-E needs an Eve and I think it would only be fair to make her from a Wii. Very nicely done. It could only be better if he crawled around.
Domino’s being the clever marketing whores that they are, are now braving crime-ridden streets and delivering to Gotham city. They even have a New Gotham City Pizza that comes in a special Gotham City Pizza Box, and is available for $9.99 through July 27. The special delivery box comes in four varieties that show off different parts of the Dark Knight’s costume: mask, arm gauntlets, chest emblem, and utility belt. The pizza itself has 50% more pepperoni than usual. Check out a video below of a delivery in action.
Wall-E opens today and one reason for Wall-E mania is that he’s just so darn cute. Which is why this item, even though it’s likely craptastic, is worth getting. I mean you can’t have too many Wall-Es in your home right?
The device comes with four games and plugs directly into your TV only needing 4 x AA batteries. You might notice the A and B buttons on his side. It will cost you $19.99 to $29.99 depending on where you get it.
Humans can’t seem to get enough of Aliens. The kind Ripley kills, not the grey ones that come at night and abduct you. Recently, we showed you some Aliens furniture.
Now some dude in Russia is taking the phenomenon mobile with this Alien car. The creator did a great job. It looks like it’s just bursting out of the grill. I love how the hands grip the headlights too. Nice touch. Next step, Ripley hunting for some payback.
I always knew that the crystal skulls were powerful, but I had no idea that they were projectors. Actually. this far inferior replica looks like it had stitches and has had it’s skull elongated in back. Looks like lucite. Not nearly as attractive as the skulls Indy hunts for. But you have to do what you can when Indy merchandise is few and far between, compared to Star Wars merchandise.
Still, somebody in quality control should have put a stop to this cheesy thing. It comes with a set of slides featuring famous archaeological sites and scenes from the Indiana Jones films that can be projected on a wall when inserted into the Skull. You can pre-order it now for $39.99, and it’s expected to ship in October.
Target sure knows how to market themselves. Warner Brothers does too. The proof is in these awesome gift cards. Target’s Wii cards looked really cool, sure. But these Speed Racer themed cards feature a USB flash drive which makes them useful too. They include an integrated inch-long USB cable that’s flush in the card and is released via a mechanical switch on the bottom edge. The cards only hold about 62.8 MB, but the upside is that 51.6 MB of that is packed with awesome Speed Racer promotional materials. Stuff like a PDF coloring book featuring the Mach 5 and other vehicles, coupons for Speed Racer toys, wallpaper, videos and even a cheat code for the Wii Speed Racer game.
The cards are obviously a team-up between Target and Warner Brothers, to promote the new Speed Racer movie. It’s a pretty smart idea. I’m not sure if you are required to actually put any money on them or not.
This is probably the coolest case mod I’ve ever seen. Surprisingly, it beats the R2-D2 cake for R2 related geek stuff I want. There doesn’t seem to be any real information about how the guy made it or what he used, but I’m assuming he is part Jawa and just scavenged parts as he roamed across the desert, bartering with moisture farmers.
There’s a ton of nice attention to detail and I don’t see any restraining bolt, so maybe this thing can roam around his house. Of course, if you had an R2 unit, you would need to childproof all the electrical outlets, so he isn’t having sex with them while you’re at work. I bet he isn’t even lonely without C-3PO at all. Goldenrod is a prissy droid, with an overactive mouth. Where as R2 is a true geek’s droid companion.
