The Most Adorable Dinobot Plush Toys Ever

Posted by Ben Huber on Jan 12, 2015 in Fandom, Hobbies and Collections

dinobots

When I saw these adorable Dinobot plush toys on Topless Robot I simply had to share them with you here. However, as I was writing this article, they sold out! So I suppose now I’m just dangling a tantalizing treat right in front of you. Don’t fret too much, though! In addition to these, Etsy seller MythFit Creations also has plenty of other cute Transformers along with several Deadpool, TMNT, How To Train your Dragon, and Catbug-themed plushes. Check out the rest of their work here, and I bet you’ll find something cuddly to add to your collection! Read more…

Posted by Michael Pinto on Nov 27, 2011 in Star Trek

Snow White macbook laptop Skin Decal

Both the Disney and Apple fanboy in me fell in love with this Snow White MacBook laptop skin decal that I spotted on Etsy. To me an appreciation of old school Disney is what sets the casual fans apart from the real connoisseurs, and if you love the medium you’ve got to worship Snow White for the landmark film that it was.

Has Star Wars Gone to the Dogs?

Posted by Michael Pinto on May 29, 2010 in Hobbies and Collections, Star Wars

Ultimate Boston Terrier Star Wars Dog Art Set

Commissioned over 100 years ago in 1903 the paintings by C. M. Coolidge which are collectively now known as Dogs Playing Poker is a cornerstone of pure(bred) Americana. But as good as those doggies were, I belive that an America of the 21st Century needs a more modern for of kitsch — and thus I nominate this Ultimate Boston Terrier Star Wars Dog Art Set for the honor. Lavishly illustrated by Brian Rubenacker this set of prints captures the canine side of Darth, Boba, Princess, Obi-Wan and Yoda. Read more…

Posted by Michael Pinto on May 22, 2010 in Hobbies and Collections, Star Trek

Ensign Bernie by Ory B

The sad fate of most red shirts is Star Trek is brutal, but poor Ensign Bernie here has it worse than most Enterprise away teams!

Credit for Ensign Bernie goes to Ory B. Read more…

Chewbacca Makes a Cute Little Cyclops

Posted by Michael Pinto on May 21, 2010 in Hobbies and Collections, Star Wars

Chewbacca the Timid Monster

Even though he’s reffered to a walking rug there’s always been something so charming about Chewie: I think it’s because Wookies remind us a bit of doggies (it’s the nose I tell you!). So you’d think that by making him a cyclops that Chewbacca wouldn’t have any appeal — yet this adorable Chewbacca the Timid Monster proves otherwise. Standing at only 1.5” tall this little guy designed by TrishCzech won me over. Read more…
