Custom Toys Inspired by Marvel Superheroes
Ryan McClure a.k.a. RocketBoy Customs sent over these pics of his latest batch of custom toys based on Marvel characters. There’s a 5” Archangel Mad*L complete with wings, a bunch of Hulk Dunnys, a Deadpool Mighty Mugg, and even an Iron-Man made from a Rose Art DIY figure, of all things!
I’ve paid actual money for action figures that aren’t nearly as cool as these.
Custom Boba Fett Kitchenaid Mixer
DeviantART member tommyfilth refurbished an old mixer and gave it a brand new paint job inspired by the coolest (and deadest) Bounty Hunter in the galaxy. My girl has two Kitchenaids. You think she’ll mind if I turn one of them into Boba Fett?
Learn to Make Chiptunes Vol. 1
If you are anything like me, you’ve probably messed around with making chiptunes before. Again, if you are like me, you’ve probably quit after a few hours of messing around on your Gameboy or hacked PSP with LSDJ.
However, we no longer have that excuse with this nifty zine by Nick Maynard from Kitsch-Bent and Rochester Chip. If you are at all interested, then you should probably pick this up as soon as you can as the last batch sold out in a single day.
Also, if you are needing a needing a new Gameboy, check out what Kitsch-Bent has in stock!
Now I have no excuses to someday be performing at 8Static.

Custom Wooden Game Of Thrones Risk Set
Fay Helfer whipped up this exquisitely classy Game of Thrones Risk set complete with an engraved wooden box, a wood-carved map of Westeros, and cloth pouches to hold the game pieces. The fact that the game pieces aren’t shown makes me think he just used the ones that come with an actual game of Risk, but I could be wrong. Even if I’m not, I wouldn’t knock the dude for it because this whole thing is just too absurdly awesome.
A Little Bit On The DIY Jetpack Side: Moosie from Been There, Pinned That made this homemade jetpack for their toddler by spraypainting two 2-liter soda bottles silver and using some tissue paper for the flame. The child’s body was found at the edge of a cliff a few miles from his home. The memorial service will be held next Wednesday. Local authorities are considering a ban on fake jetpacks.
KIDDING!!! Okay, that was pretty terrible, but I’m not sorry.
On the real, though, this is pretty clever and I kind of want to make this for myself.
