So ThinkGeek is selling a $13 Monolith Action Figure from 2001: A Space Odyssey. It's basically a piece of rectangular molded plastic and ranks right up there with Wonder Woman's Invisible Plane (read: near the bottom). Product highlights:
- Properly proportioned to those in the movies 2001 and 2010 (1:4:9 - the squares of the first 3 integers)
- Made of semisynthetic, organic, amorphous, solid materials (AKA plastic)
- Zero (0) points of articulation
Oh man, wait till your sci-fi lovin' friends come over and see this thing on your shelf. They're gonna lose their shit! Oooooor berate you for spending $13 on a gag-toy. And speaking of gag-toys: I think I just swallowed a yo-yo. Little help over here!

This is a worthwhile gallery of sci-fi movie scenes recreated with minimal LEGO pieces as part of the "Mi-Fi" contest run by The Living Brick. As you can see, everybody did a really amazing job. Me? I do a f***ing terrible job, which is why I've been fired eight times in the... / Continue →
