"Well, of course I’m being childish! There’s no point being grown-up if you can’t be childish sometimes."
Sandbach, Cheshire, UK-based Playmobil member Emma J made is awesome custom set of steampunk Doctor Who toys featuring a TARDIS, a Dalek, and the 4th Doctor. Tom Baker looks great in tiny plastic form. We hope that beautiful TARDIS is full of Jelly Babies.
Playmobil + Doctor Who = Awesome

Mike from Semi Sweet (previously featured here) created these awesome Star Trek: The Next Generation-themed cookies as a geektastic Valentine’s Day treat. He even decorated one of the heart-shaped Starfleet uniform cookies with Worf’s Klingon baldric.

"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.

Paul Vermeesch created this awesome LEGO Star Wars sculptural rendition of M. C. Escher’s famous Relativity lithograph. Entitled Star Wars Relativity V2, the gravity-defying diorama measures 1’ x 1’ x 1’ and took six months to complete.
"This diorama is fully lit from the inside, presents the original Star Wars trilogy in a roughly counterclockwise format, and even features a minifig-scale theatre in the back which plays Lego’s CG version of the Star Wars saga.”
"I attempted to stay as true as possible to the geometry and proportions of Escher’s work, while bringing in the colors, worlds, and characters of Star Wars, and the freshness of the Lego medium.”

Finnish photographer Vesa Lehtimäki, aka Avanaut, used LEGO bricks, minifigs, baking powder and a masterful ability to manipulate perspective in order to create an awesome series of Star Wars scenes that appear to take place on the snowy planet Hoth.

As a lifelong fan of Star Trek: The Original Series, Line Rainville knew exactly what she wanted to do when she grew up and got her very own house - deck it out from wall to wall and floor to ceiling with Star Trek decor. And that’s exactly what she did to her geektastic home in Joliette, Quebec, Canada.
The project began with a Star Trek-themed home theatre in Line’s basement and grew from there. After a year’s worth of renovations and about $30,000, Line’s awesome home now features elements from the bridge of the Starship Enterprise, Spock’s personal quarters, the transporter room, and lots more. There’s a food replicator in the kitchen and we even spotted a Tribble on one of the control panels on the bridge and a bottle of Saurian brandy on the dining table.
Birmingham, Alabama-based Star Wars superfan Barry Riddle had something far better in mind for the spare 140-square-foot space in his living room than simply adding more furniture. Barry painstakingly created this epic diorama of the Battle of Hoth from The Empire Strikes Back.

We’ve shared a few different Dalek Christmas trees here over the years, but now, thanks to John Smith, we get to watch a Dalek decorate a tree of its own in this short video E-card entitled “A Very Dalek Christmas”.
How does a murderous cyborg trim a Christmas tree? We don’t want to spoil the surprise, but let’s just say it’s going to be quite a toasty holiday for this particular Dalek. This awesome little video couldn’t be more perfectly titled.
