Custom Playmobil -NASA Orion Capsule

Splash Down!

My son and I were excited to hear about the new NASA Orion capsule. This is the vehicle our astronauts will be using in a few years to return safely from trips to Mars and the Moon! I recently picked up the Playmobil Rescue Raft (5545) from Toys R Us. I decided to mod it to look like the new capsule. Check out my pics below, including a link to download a set of decals to make your own Orion capsule!

Millennium Falcon Guitar

Star Wars fans are some of the most creative people I have ever met. Once again, I’m blown away with the Millennium Falcon Guitar. Travis S. built a guitar using a toy Millennium Falcon ship. The guitar plays music, and even lights up! Urlesque.com has a great interview with the creator along with some additional photos of the guitar.

Manufactured toys aren’t perfect. As much as companies try, they can’t satisfy everyone. That where customizing comes in. We fans can modify a figure to suit our individual tastes. Whether it’s as simple as repainting or completely sculpting a figure from scratch, customizing can solidify your collection as “yours”, and hobbies are proven to reduce the risk of heart disease.

The Bat-Truck

This weekend at the Steel City Con I parked near a truck decked out to look like the George Barris Batmobile. The owner of this truck is clearly a fan of Batman. The truck has every detail of the Batmobile, including the hood air intake, Bat symbols on the door, and rear wing spoilers. The back even has the jet engine.
