LEGO artist Stormbringer mashed up Pokemon and giant robots to produce Poke'Mecha, a series of large-scale LEGO sculptures!
I've created a new form of Pokemon battle, where giant mechs known as Poke-Mecha, engage in large-scale Pokemon battles, who are controlled by the Pokemon trainers who built them. A highly dangerous, but fun sport.
These three are only the first of what may be a long-term project. Continue reading for the story of each Poke'Mecha, as told by Stormbringer.
Blastoise was my first Poke-mecha, which is also a solid build that won't fall to bits easily.
Blastoise is controlled by a minifig inside (as are all the Poke'Mecha), which gives you an idea of their size.
Venusaur took the longest time to make for me (a full month), due long time of finding and acquiring the rare color medium azure/maersk blue and struggling to make a sturdy quadruped mech.
Red and green is cute and all, but Christmas is in serious need of a make-over. The folks over at Treetopia.com have come up with a new look for this Holiday season, and they might have used Ru’s dragulator to help them out. Behold, the Color Burst Rainbow Tree!
The product description reads:
We’re proud to present one of our most talked-about trees, one that has garnered legions of fans and has become a true media darling — the Color Burst Rainbow Christmas Tree. This rainbow Christmas tree elicits smiles and radiates pure happiness with its vibrant appearance. Spiraling with a plethora of colors, this tree requires no lights to wow a crowd.

4chan’s /b/ forum — the same one that convinced lots of people to dunk their phones in water — has now promised new Xbox One users a way to “hack” their new gaming units so they will be backwards compatible.
INSTEAD, IT BRICKS THE CONSOLE, RENDERING IT INOPERABLE.
THERE IS NO WAY TO REVERSE IT.
IF YOU SEE THIS, PLEASE DO NOT DO IT:
A Tweet from Xbox Live’s programming director Larry Hryb:
note the pbr cans in florida... it's a festivus miracle!
The annual holiday displays of state and local governments have become one of the main battlegrounds between Christmas crusaders like Sarah Palin and whiny losers who refuse to accept the divinity of Jesus out of pure stubbornness. But instead of fighting (likely unsuccessfully) to keep their displays Christmas-only, many localities have ... More »
“We wanted to make an object that could only be done through 3D printing.” I think that Toru Hasegawa of the New York City-based Proxy Design Studio overstates his case. It might be possible to make this kinetic sculpture by hand. But since it has one million distinct polygons in the design, it would take a long time.
The Mechaneu is a structure composed of 64 interlocking gears. Turn one and all the others turn in time. It’s an exploration of what Mr. Hasegawa sees as the natural evolution of geometry to solve design problems. I don’t agree with (or perhaps don’t understand) his argument, but I think that the sculpture is cool.
A sassy drag queen, alternative timelines, Lovecraftian horrors and Nazis: Dead Century: Silhouette has it all. Set in a dystopian parallel universe where the good guys battle a magically powered Third Reich, it’s a video game described by its makers as “a globe-spanning, monster-fighting, mystery-solving puzzle RPG and comic for iPhone and iPad.”
With art by Ray Bruwelheide, Silhouette features a range of playable characters that can be custom-designed to suit various tastes—users can alter their avatar’s gender, ethnicity and even his or her sexual orientation. “Women, people of color, and queers of all types tend to get left out of modern video games,” explain developers from developers at the Byte Dept, who have launched a Kickstart campaign. “We’re trying to make an effort to fix that”
The hope is Dead Century: Silhouette, currently available on iTunes,will be the first in a series of interactive comics and games. Check out the trailer above and, if you like what you see, make a pledge on their Kickstarter page.
Ordinarily, snow flakes are a peaceful and relaxing sight, but when the snow flakes depict the different houses from Game of Thrones, it's guaranteed to be a very blood red Christmas. We all know that winter is coming though and when you're working with snow flakes and winter, only one house can come out on top and that's the House Stark.
These lovely tributes to the world of George R.R. Martin are the works of Redditor Elizerdbeth and I'm very happy she made them.
It wouldn’t be Thanksgiving without some culture-war battle erupting: First it was how corporations were ruining Thanksgiving by staying open on Thursday. Once the parade got started, some viewers were aghast to see the cast of Kinky Boots dancing and singing in front of Macy’s.
“Does every parade these days really have turn turn into a gay pride thing?” commented SuperLatvian on YouTube. “Even a traditional family oriented event is no more out of bounds. Parents must have had a lovely time explaining to their kids who watched the parade what a ‘transsexual’ is or why those men dressed in such a way.”
EW.com gave a lowdown on the parade and received numerous comments like this one, from JT:
It is un-family and un-called for to feature the “Kinky Boots” segment!! !’m just “thankful” my kids didn’t see it. I’m appalled. On a day when we are all trying to enjoy our family, we shouldn’t have to explain that segment to our children! Poor taste!
Yes, how dare you ruin the sacredness of the Thanksgiving Day Parade, a time set aside for all Americans to watching giant floating ads for Pepperidge Farm Goldfish, Ocean Spray cranberry juice and The Voice!
So I sit down to watch the Macy’s Day parade with my 9 yr old daughter, a 40+ year tradition for me, and NBC and Macy’s decide the 3rd act will be the musical act from Kinky Boots, promoting homosexuality and cross dressing.
It took about 2 seconds for my daughter to see that something was not quite right when she noticed the cross dressing Cabernet singer. “Dad, that’s a man, and he’s kinda creepy.”
Thank you Macy’s and NBC for making me discuss cross dressing deviates on Thanksgiving Day. I dont think, however, that my conversation with my daughter went the way you would have wanted.
P.S. – Since Macy’s sees fit to abandon the traditional family so publicly, I will not be shopping at Macy’s this year … or ever!
And, yes, he really did spell it “Cabernet”
Of course, those bigots would have lost their shit if they’d seen Kinky Boots co-creator Harvey Fierstein’s tweet:
KINKY BOOTS performed at the MACYS PARADE today. 10 years ago I appeared as MRS SANTA CLAUS. 3 cheers for MACY’S! U make us proud!
