Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Amigurumi

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Amigurumi
Craftster user Falwyn crocheted these super cute Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles dolls for her kids, based on Atsuko’s pattern. Falwyn made the shells differently than Atsuko, and provided those directions in her post. Personally, I would have made the shells bigger, but all in all, this would make a great little gift for geeks large and small.

Transformers Toque

Transformers Toque

Craftster.org user subloke made this Transformers toque based on Baigneuse’s version, who made hers based on Flickr user twosixteen’s chart. Subloke even made the Transformers hat reversible – one side has Autobot and Decepticon icons and the other side says “more than meets the eye.”

She was even kind enough to post the pattern and instructions to the Transformers hat so anyone with the skillz can make one too!

Han Solo in Carbonite Desk

Han Solo in carbonite desk

Good lord! What geek wouldn’t give their left arm for a desk like this! Designer Tom Spina has created this incredible desk with Han Solo in Carbonite in it! Tom says:

A custom designed desk that fits a Star Wars-style theme. Beyond furniture… it’s not just a desk, it’s art! Metal and fiberglass construction with a heavy glass top create an elegant and extremely unique piece of furniture!

Me behind desk: I suggest you rethink that plan, underling. Look at my desk to see what happened to the last person that defied me. BWAHAHAHA!
