If we told you that a man who was able to create a replica of the Star Trek Voyager starship in his apartment ended up being served divorce papers by his wife, you probably wouldn't be that surprised.

Star Wars slot car sets don’t use cars

Star Wars slot car sets don’t use cars

This is so awesome. I had a bunch of slot car sets when I was a kid; I was never very good at racing them though. Mostly I concentrated on making the cars leave the track and hit the people racing against me in the gonads. That trick takes more skill than you might imagine. I would have so owned one of these as a kid. Honestly, I might order both of them now.

Plushtography Pillow looks like a giant lens

I know there are a bunch of photography geeks that read SlashGear. Sure mostly you guys want to read about new hardware in the camera realm but on occasion we find suitably geeky stuff that you will like that is nothing to do with hardware. The last photography related thing of that sort was the Lens Bracelets back in November. Today I ran across some weird lens pillows that honestly don’t look very comfortable.

KRE-O construction Transformer sets hit stores

KRE-O construction Transformer sets hit stores

Hasbro is the toy company that was behind some of the toys that shaped my youth. Specifically, I had all the Transformers that my parents would let me have. I often broke them trying to transform them from robot to vehicle or whatever and they were a lot of fun. I also had loads of LEGO as a kid and spent more than a few days grounded thanks to the little blocks and my tendency to leave them laying around for my parents to step on.
