I don't think I can go another day without buying this
http://www.gainax.co.jp/anime/psg/goods/0060.html

I'm a huge sucker for little figurines. And I'm insanely crazy about Panty & Stocking. I need help.

How about you guys? Show us some dumb stuff you want.
UPDATE!

I bought this crap:




I'm very happy with my purchase. Great figures.

I do like ABC Warriors alot, since this is one of the few figures of the characters from that series that have been made I would at the very least love to get my hands on this thing...someday.

Watching that drift video that's going viral on YT reminded me of the AE86.

That's pretty awesome  :ganishka: But I'd still buy it from the official company even if the recipe got around. They do a fantastic job  :daiba:

Thats awesome Gobolatula! Do you mind if I ask how much they were? I love Panty and Stocking and I'd like to get those sometime. The only merchandise I have are these two wall scrolls:

http://www.amazon.com/Panty-Stocking-Anarchy-Sisters-GE84025/dp/B007TBOVJY/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1368556049&sr=8-1&keywords=panty+and+stocking+wall+scrolls
http://www.amazon.com/Panty-And-Stocking-Sisters-Transformation/dp/B007TBYPMW/ref=pd_bxgy_t_img_y

I am very happy with them. :)

Giant isopods (daiogusokumushi in Japanese) are passionately loved by some people now in Japan. They found the creatures mysterious and cute. A giant isopod in Toba Aquarium has eaten no food for over 4 years. This giant isopod doll is close to the real ones in shape. The doll has cute round eyes and is very soft and comfortable to the touch.

Name: giant isopod
Scientific name: Bathynomus giganteus
Group: in the same group as woodlouses and sea slaters
Nickname: Gusoku-tan
Home: at 200-1000m deep sea around the Gulf of Mexico and the western Atlantic
Most attractive feature: long and narrow eyes
Specialty: Fasting

Picture 3

And it's out of stock! :sad:

This hover-board looks bulky but neat! Retails at $300 according to Gizmodo's site.

Ok, i didn't want to share my precious little secret. But here goes. For the true movie buff (it's filled with obscure references) this is THE BEST t-shirt design house. Click the find button and "search by film" and be amazed.

http://www.lastexittonowhere.com/

Ever since I read the post above I've wanted to buy something from that site, and I finally did (I can't believe it took me over five years  :farnese:). I got my order today and I couldn't be happier with what I got.

Thank you for sharing, NightCrawler!

This handy product will be perfect for me when I'm late night web browsing with my 1998 Apple monitor.

I can honestly say that this is not stupid, I used to stay up late to do stuff on my PC but my parents were very strict about going to bed at 10 p.m.. Obviously I did not comply and every night I snuck into the study after I was sure my parents were asleep, then I closed the door shut, took out a blanket and put it over the monitor and my head to block the light, that way even if my somebody were to wake up in the middle of the night they wouldn't suspect that something was off about the study room. It worked well but I had to keep leaning forward so that the blanket wouldn't block half of the screen, it made my back ache and messed my hair up pretty bad.
This would've been a godsend.

Definitely man, that site is goddamn amazing if you're a science fiction or horror film fan. I only own 4 things from it so far. Slow and steady ... what did you get if you don't mind me asking? I have a Sunshine tee, a HAL tee and cap and a Nostromo jacket.

I got two shirts, one inspired by Predator and one by Inglourious Basterds (it's tricky only picking a couple of designs).

On a related note, I was watching an episode of Top Gear and one of the guests, Brian Cox, was wearing one of their shirts (Stay on target). Good stuff.
