Nerdgasm: Two cool new ‘toys’

Why is it that at a time in my life when I have zero funds to blow on exessively expensive toys, these two items show up for sale online?

First up is a full-size replica of a Cylon Centurion from the amazing remake of the TV series Battlestar Galactica. It is handmade and features a functional visor light. Did I mention that it’s full-size? That’s 7 feet of pure AWESOME. Not so cool is the $7,500 price tag. Yikes.

The second toy combines two of my childhood obsessions, Star Wars and LEGO, so you know it’s going to be cool. It’s a LEGO Death Star. That’s right, the Death Star. Made completely of LEGOs. Did your head just explode? It comes with a bunch of Star Wars characters and several rooms that played important roles in A New Hope. A $400 price tag seems steep, but holy hell this is cool.
