Dark as Night Batman Motorcycle Helmet

You've probably seen or at least heard of the HD100, formerly known as "Dark as Night", Batman motorcycle helmet from Helmet Dawg, but now customers are posting videos of themselves wearing this geeky creation. Just to recap, it starts out as a DOT-approved GMax GM48S Platinum Series full face motorcycle helmet, and is meticulously transformed into what you see above. The original customization process hit some snags when it came to the ears and browline accents, but after lots of hard work, a Dark Knight-worthy helmet was the result.

Custom made by Dony Custom, these geeky Spider-Man helmets are most certainly DOT-approved lookers, but we don't recommend using them in battle, especially Green Goblin. They come in a variety of colors and sizes (up to XXL, taking approximately two weeks each to prepare. Regardless of model, they use the same HJC CS-R1 helmet with smoke visor as the base.

When are gummy bears not just a candy treat you enjoy occasionally? When you take 1,000 of them and create a life-sized Darth Vader Helmet. That's exactly what "Crummy Gummy" did, and the result is worthy of a museum to say the least. It was showcased this past December at the Wyn317 gallery in Miami, Florida. It took approximately two months to create, "with the last week of that growing delirious with the smell of gummies and drinking a ridiculousness amount of RedBull," according to Crummy.

Chewbacca Sofa

Chewbacca is one of the best known characters from the Star Wars universe, and if he were a piece of furniture, we'd imagine him looking something like the Long Wool Sofa from New York-based Sentient. While not officially licensed by Lucasfilm, this sofa does feature a base constructed from reclaimed American oak boards, in addition to what appears to be actual Wookiee fur - is actually long wool Icelandic sheepskin. Not only soft to the touch, the sheepskin is extremely cozy as well, and will definitely keep you warm even on the coldest nights. Continue reading for more pictures.

If Disney decides that they want to dive head first into the MMORPG PC and mobile gaming world, acquiring Blizzard wouldn't be such a bad idea. Should that ever happen, seeing Marvel characters in the World of Warcraft universe would become a regular occurrence, or so we'd like to think. Artist Daniel Kamarudin has already imagined such a world and came up with his own versions of a fantasy-themed Avengers team. Continue reading to see all of the main Age of Ultron characters reimagined.

Titans Creations, a Singapore-based team of six, spent two months building a Millennium Falcon with 10,000 LEGO pieces just in time for LEGOLAND Malaysia's event on May 4. It measures 144cm by 144cm, and is approximately 40% larger than Lego's very own Star Wars "Ultimate Collector's Edition" Millennium Falcon, which is 84cm by 56cm, according to the Brickpedia, a database of LEGO products. The minifigs fit the ship's dimensions perfectly, and Titans Creations took things to the next level by adding 24 LEDs to light the corridors, hyperdrive, rear thrusters and cockpit.
