Mark a.k.a. Broken Journalist created this awesome steampunk AT-AT walker as an engagement present for his fiancée. There are so many wonderful little details on this piece. It’s clearly a labour of geeky love.
To Mark and his Star Wars and steampunk-loving lass, the Geyser of Awesome congratulations on your engagement!

We may tend to think of Stormtroopers simply as anonymous henchmen of Galactic Empire, but that’s probably because we rarely get to see them with their guard down. Sometimes Stormtroopers grow bone-weary and it’s a lucky thing when little Pikachu are there to offer support.
This heartwarming and delightfully geeky candid family photo was taken by Coolmikeol during FanimeCon 2011 in San Jose, CA. Fanime is one of North America’s largest anime conventions and has been running since 1994. You can revisit this photo any time you like over at the Department of Awesome Parenting.
A Redditor named Tillamook spent his day off from work making these incredible awesome giant cardboard robot arms.
“Spent my day off putting together cardboard robot arms. A day well spent.”
We couldn’t agree more. Next we’d like to see Tillamook and a friend facing off while both wearing a pair of these amazing appendages. Giant cardboard robot arm battle!
ShinodaGE, self-proclaimed “Brony Graffiti Artist” in Argentina (previously featured here) teamed up with German photographer M99moron to create this awesome Pinkie Pie Portal. Looking through the German side shows a warm beach in Argentina, while looking through the Argentinian side shows a snowy German landscape.
“We’ve only met a couple weeks back, when I saw one of ShinodaGE’s rad street paintings featured on EQD. I was really excited to hear about another brony street artist. I contacted him and we got along really well, and after a short while I told him about this idea.
Long story short, we exchanged some photos, photoshopped some images, printed those posters and ta-da! A gateway was created for Pinkie to go trough. Now she could enjoy the warmth of the summer of the southern hemisphere and take a break from the winter of the north.
Fun fact: The posters were pasted and the photos taken on the same day. The pictures in the portals behind pinkie are what one would actually see if the portals were real.”
What an awesome project!
Behold the wonderfully geeky work of a truly awesome dad: Sean Murray built a Millennium Falcon sled for his daughter.
“Each year, my work puts on a Winter Carnival. Each section forms a team and selects a theme for themselves. This year, I decided to put a team together and we chose Star Wars as our theme. One of the events is a Human Dogsled Race using team-built sleighs. As the Team Captain, I took on the task of creating the ultimate sled: The Millennium Falcon. Everyone seemed to like the finished product, but the best part for me was being able to play Star Wars with my daughter. The sled is made entirely of cardboard and mounted to a plastic toboggan underneath.
Mandatory Han Solo quote: “She may not look like much, but she’s got it where it counts, kid.”
By the look of these photos, The Force is with both of them.
Nukamari, a Spanish photographer and LEGO enthusiast, created this awesome photo depicting Darth Vader as Antoine de Saint-Exupéry’s beloved character The Little Prince. His private planet is the Death Star and he even has his own precious little rose.
Now here’s an entertaining exercise for us all - read this beautiful quotation as though it were being spoken by Darth Vader:
“Here is my secret. It is very simple: It is only with the heart that one can see rightly; what is essential is invisible to the eye.”
“I find your lack of faith disturbing.”
Just a few days ago we posted about an awesome new internet meme that has people creating and sharing amazing photos in which they appear to be unleashing Dragon Ball Z energy attacks on their friends. But things move so quickly on the interwebs that that’s now old news and the newest trend in silly photos is called “Vadering.”
In these photos one person appears to use the Force to attack one or more victims with the dreaded Force Choke, raising them up off the ground in the process. Even Darth Vader himself has gotten in on the memetastic action.
