Star Trek Electronic Door Chime
Now you can be warned when someone’s approaching your office or bedroom door by this authentic reproduction of the Star Trekwall intercom. It uses motion sensors that set off either a door swishing or red-alert alarm from the original TV show every time someone approaches to bother you. If you’re married, we suggest you stick with the door swishing sound, which has been scientifically proven to end marriages 35 percent more slowly than the red-alert alarm. But you’re probably not ordering this if you’re married anyway.
The spiky, sharp-shooting chrome Centurion robots from the Battlestar Galacticareboot series were one of the coolest things in the show, but until now they were available only as spindly plastic action figures that absolutely would not even stand up on their own. This model kit allows you to build these classic metal heavies in a variety of poses, then glue the hell out of them to make sure they stand still.
Another example of romance gone wrong was the epic interspecies relationship between the amphibious Creature from the Black Lagoon and his distinctly mammalian crush Julia Adams, immortalized here in another awesome figure model. If you can reproduce the print on this woman’s swimsuit as seen here with a paintbrush you’re eligible for a special Presidential medal of honor.
We couldn’t get through this section without mentioning yet another huge Hot Toys Batmobile replica, and this time it’s the turbine-powered, gothic-styled behemoth from the first Tim Burton Batman— in our opinion the second coolest Batmobile ever. (Sorry, Adam West’s classic 1966 scorcher remains in the #1 position.) While the scowling Michael Keaton Batman isn’t included (but is available separately, along with a stupendous Jack Nicholson Joker), this baby does include an elevating turntable, raising and lowering machine guns, an opening canopy and hyper-detailed cockpit. But be warned: You almost need to be Bruce Wayne himself to afford this thing.
If you’ve watched Star Trek: First Contact, then you saw that weird electroluminescent circle over Data’s chest when he was being programmed by the Borg and screamed, “I want that!”Well, your demands are finally being met. This 6” glass disc produces mesmerizing webs of electricity that you can manipulate with touch, your voice, or music. We can’t think of a better way of convincing your friends that you have eerie powers.
Remember the lines, “The Sandpeople will be back, and in greater numbers” and “Sandpeople always ride single file, to hide their numbers”? What’s with these Sandpeople and their numbers already? You might solve that mystery by purchasing this deluxe action figure with all the trimmings: Gaffi stick, slug thrower rifle, that respirator thing that kind of makes him look like he dispenses toilet paper out of his nose, bandoliers… Oh, and bandages. Lots and lots of bandages.
We’ve all had our hearts crushed by some prom queen at one time or another, and now you can re-create that awesome feeling of soul-crushing rejection with this scale model of the Frankenstein monster and his Bride from the 1932 epic Bride of Frankenstein. Boris Karloff’s creature touchingly offers his hand to Elsa Manchester’s Bride, and she literally spits at him. Burned!
Even if you had OD’d on Tom Cruise by the time Steven Spielberg’s take on War of the Worldscame out, you still had to admit those walking tripod alien war machines were scary cool. Now you can commemorate their spindly majesty (and disturbing penchant for collecting human beings for fertilizer) by building this towering 1:144-scale model. (Yes, assembly required.) And you’ll have to make that chilling foghorn sound effect yourself.
