"This Valentine’s Day, we’re canceling solitude!"
Pacific Rim was an awesome movie, but we hadn’t considered how much of the dialogue is so well-suited for delightfully geeky valentines. That is, not until we saw these wonderful cards made by Portland, OR-based artist and illustrator Benjamin Dewey. The limited edition set of 30 cards features just about every character from the film. The Jaegers, their pilots, the scientists, even the ferocious Kaiju are feeling the love.
Visit Benjamin’s Etsy shop to view the entire series and perhaps even order a set

Germinate! Germinate! British photographer Chris Balcombe is a prolific collector of original Doctor Who props, some of which date back to the 1960s. Included in enviable his collection are a number of different Daleks. However the incredibly awesome “Dalek Planter” pictured above was built by Chris himself, who modeled it after the golden Daleks which battled both Christopher Eccleston’s ninth Doctor and David Tennat’s tenth Doctor.
The first time we met artist Kayla Kromer (previously featured here) she had created an awesome Hamburger Bed. We’re pleased to report that Kayla has returned with a brand new bed that is nothing short of super awesome. While we can’t guarantee that the Millennium Falcon Bed can make the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs, with its assorted lights and secret compartments, we’re pretty sure she’s still got it where it counts.

"The Force is strong with this one."
Could this modified TIE Fighter be the geekiest wheelchair of all time?
We aren’t sure, but it’s definitely one of the most awesome. Redditor JapanUnderground spotted this wonderful example of Star Wars cosplay last month at the 2013 MCM London ComicCon. He took this photo after thoughtfully seeking permission from Darth Vader’s father. Considering Vader’s terrifying Force Choke ability, it’s probably prudent not to upset his dad either.

We love this wonderful illustration promoting both the awesomeness of literacy and a brand new book by one of our favourite cartoonists, Jeffrey Brown.
Entitled Star Wars: Vader’s Little Princess, the book is a delightful collection of comics depicting the relationship between Darth Vader and Princess Leia had he been responsible for raising her. It’s a follow-up to the equally awesome Star Wars: Darth Vader and Son in which the Dark Lord of the Sith is playing an active role as father to young Luke.
This is Star Wars imagined in a way you’ve never seen before. It’s cute, tender, and very funny. We think it’s pretty awesome.

London-based photographer Luca di Filippo created an awesome photo series, entitled Daily Contaminations, which depicts insects made of components from discarded electronics skulking about our homes and investigating our lives.
"We never thought about what’s going on in our houses when we are out. They exist, they born from all the trashed electronic gadgets we used for years and years. Little "electronic creatures", very smart, harmless but curious, very curious. They roam around looking for informations about our habits. Nobody knows why. Someone thinks they sell data to the highest bidder. And any kind of pesticide can’t stop 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."
We recently posted about an artist named Joebot who created a wonderful series of mock covers for Little Golden Books based on video games. Thanks to Laughing Squid we’ve learned that another artist has done something similarly awesome, but with a completely different flavour:
Australian illustrator DrFaustusAU (previously featured here) created an awesome series of video game-themed book covers in the style of Dr. Seuss: “Under the Sea with Mister B! ” for BioShock, “Some Time to Kill in Silent Hill! ” for Silent Hill, and “If I was Dovahkiin” for The Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
