It Took 400,000 Lego Bricks to Build Hogwarts

Alice Finch built this humongous Hogwarts replica using 400,000 Lego bricks, not just completing the outside of the school accurately, but also creating an interior to just about every room Hogwarts has to offer as well. We’re talking Snape's classroom, the Chamber of Secrets, potions lab, the Great Hall, and everything else you can think of. Photos of the entire school can be found on her Flickr.

Brothers Brick has an interview with Finch about the massive creative feat. Flip through her photos to see numerous references and characters to the beloved book/film series.

I Live in Weeaboo City, Florida

Not really. But Orlando is pretty up on Wapan and the Wapanese culture. It all just kinda comes together at Epcot.

These photos are from a store located inside of Epcot’s World Showcase in the Japan pavilion. I snapped some photos tonight since I realize not everyone in the world gets a chance to go to Epcot, let alone Disney, as much as I do.

(I’ve got a year pass, and before you call me ‘lucky,’ realize that they cost $400 and I had to save up for a while to actually achieve it. Also, I’m not ‘lucky,’ for living next to Disney as Orlando is a terrible city.)

The store that sells these items is actually a real department store called Mitsukoshi. The store mainly exists on the east side of the world, with locations in Japan (where it originated from), Korea, Hong Kong, and China, with a few locations in Europe. The sole Mitsukoshi store that exists in all of North America is only at Disney’s Epcot in the Japan pavilion.

So it’s no wonder why so many weeaboos come to Epcot daily. And no, I don’t mean tourists who are interested in looking at Pocky all day, but I mean local/Floridian weeaboos. They really do exist there — I’ve seen them, and they come to Epcot pretty often.

There is a handful of kids who walk around the Japan pavilion and hang out there all day, spending tourist prices on Ramune and rocking their most stylish fedoras. Granted, I spend all day at Disney whenever I have the chance, but I also visit its three other parks, and I don’t choose to consume wasabi peas for dinner every chance I get to go. To each his own, I guess. Enjoy the photos of some of the merch located Mitsukoshi at Epcot, as well as a portion of my Saturday night.

Solid Snake Amigurumi Plush

You know, I’ve seen a lot of these plushies on Etsy before, but this one really takes the cake for being a stray from the norm. It’s pretty easy making a Mario plush or a more recognizable anime or Nintendo character, but Etsy store PixelBlock decided to go above and beyond that and create awesome Solid Snake Amigurumi plushes. Kudos to them because this 5 1/2 inch plush is really badass.

Action Figures Fucking 2013 Calendars

Some guy named Vince Kramer has created a calendar of action figures fucking each other. Because 2013 needed a thing like this, I suppose. Kramer took photos of a bunch of action figures in various sex positions and put them together to make one raunchy plastic calendar.

From Kramer’s official WordPress:

Keep track of your days with hot and hardcore pornographic action figure action!  Whether it’s Luke Skywalker getting fucked in the ass, He-Man giving Skeletor a blowjob, or Princess Leia being gang-raped by Ewoks; you’ll NEVER forget an important date again!  Order one of my HOT Action Figures Fucking Calendars now for only $25.00 dollars (including shipping and handling) while supplies last!  That’s a deal you can’t get anywhere else, just like these calendars!

I feel somewhat uncomfortable posting about this now. Erm…More info can be found at Kramer’s site on how to order them, as well as specs for the actual calendar.

Ninja of the Month: Galaxy Ninja
This might be Shawnimals’ tripiest ninja yet. Galaxy Ninja has star-print fabric, a zen circle, and black hole eyes. The only way he could be cooler is if he could shoot gamma ray bursts from his zen circle. Get him for $30 at Shawnimals.

A Little Bit on the Truffle Side: Check out tokidoki’s most recent toy, Truffle. The Cactus Friends bunny is available now from the official tokidoki site. It’s about the same size as most other Cactus Friends animals. In other words, it’s not as big as a Sandy figure, but it’s still awesome, especially for under $10.
