It never ceases to amaze me the crazy and awesome things that artistic people come up with.  I know I am not the artistic type just because I would never conceive of something as crazy and apparently awesome as Darth Vader combined with a tank in the style of steampunk.  I often wish I had been born as more of an artistic type but as long as I can at least appreciate cool art, that is good enough for me.  Speaking of cool art in the form of a steampunk Darth Vader Tank, the creation below is pretty neat!

Artist Gabriel Dishaw is the creator of this awesome Darth Vader tank and to build it, he used a toy tank (obviously), computer parts, typewriter parts, airplane parts, wire and more.  He was selling this work of art for $1000 but it looks like I was a little slow in posting about this because it is sold already.  I wouldn’t mind being the proud owner of it but I can’t afford to spend that much just to have a cool Darth Vader tank.

It has been a long time since I have posted a geeky musical instrument so when I saw this TARDIS ukulele, I knew I had to post it.  There is nothing better than combining my two greatest loves, science fiction and music!

In the past, I posted a really cool Doctor Who inspired TARDIS guitar better known as the GuiTARDIS but you don’t see ukuleles that often which I think makes this TARDIS ukulele even more special.

Etsy seller (the maker of the Pac-Man ukulele I posted in the past) is selling this fantastic TARDIS ukulele for $700.  I really have no idea if that is a good price as I have never looked into buying a ukulele before but I would guess it is a decent price considering the awesome TARDIS design.  Feel free to correct me in the comments below if I am way off about that.

If you know any ukulele playing Doctor Who fans, make sure to send this link to them, otherwise just share this with any Doctor Who fans you know because they will think it is pretty cool!  Like us on Facebook too!

If you or somebody you know happens to get this, send us a video of you playing it and we will share it on here!

A long time ago, I posted some Star Wars inspired Stormtrooper latte art that looking back in comparison to all of the other latte art I have posted is so ugly I probably should have never posted it.  It was a decent effort but looking back, it just wasn’t up to the quality standards I try to hold this site up to.  However, today I have found some great Stormtrooper latte art that is worthy of being on Global Geek News!

Sadly, I have no idea who the talented barista is that made this awesome work of Star Wars latte art but they did a great job!  If you know who made this awesome Stormtrooper latte art, let us know in the comments below so they can get the credit they deserve!

I’m not a coffee drinker but I could probably use a nice cup of Stormtrooper right about now.  Waking up at 4am with an extremely upset stomach is not fun and now I am so tired I will probably end up falling asleep at work.  At least the weekend is almost here!

Anybody who has been a reader of Global Geek News for any length of time knows I have a slight obsession with artwork by Megan Lara.  I tend to become especially crazed when the design is focused on Doctor Who.  I have t-shirts of all of her Doctor Who designs and a few others ranging from the Legend of Zelda (coincidentally, that is the one I am wearing now) to Battlestar Galactica.  She really is an incredible artist!

Well, speaking of her incredible work, another one of her amazing Doctor Who inspired shirts is on sale for just today!

The incredible folks over at TeeFury are selling this ‘I Am the Bad Wolf’ t-shirt for just $11 today only!  This design is the last in the collaborative series of Doctor Who shirts by Megan Lara and Omega Man 5000 and it might be my favorite!

There is a lot in this shirt that any Whovian is sure to love from Rose Tyler to the Doctor’s 3D glasses, any Doctor Who fan will fall in love with this shirt.  This shirt also makes it appropriate to ask people if they are your mummy and when they respond, yell EXTERMINATE!

I will be buying this shirt as soon as I finish this post since I have to have the last in the series considering I have all of the others.  If you get the shirt too, let us know in the comments below!  Also, using the links here (above or the source link below) supports Global Geek News because they are affiliate links and we get a tiny percentage of the sale.

There aren’t too many shows these days that people of all generations enjoy but Doctor Who is one of those few shows.  I have met people that have been watching it for the 50 years that it has been on as well as little kids that are huge fans of the show.  Just a couple of weeks ago, I was picking up some fast food when a girl that I am guessing was around 6 or 7 years old started to freak out about how awesome one of my Megan Lara designed Doctor Who shirts was and got her dad to notice who was also a Whovian.  Well, speaking of little kids that like Doctor Who, it seems one Whovian just turned 6 and got some amazing Doctor Who cupcakes and a cake for their birthday.

The Clever Little Cupcake Company made these awesome Doctor Who cupcakes and TARDIS birthday cake for Lewis who apparently turned 6.  I can’t decide which cupcake I like the most, the Cyberman cupcakes, Dalek Cupcakes, sonic screwdriver cupcake or the TARDIS cupcake.  They all look so good!  I am very impressed with what this cupcake company has done!

With all of the excitement around Doctor Who lately, especially with the announcement of the 12th Doctor and the 50th anniversary special just a couple of months away, I couldn’t help but post this absolutely beautiful Weeping Angel cake.  I’ve posted a cool Doctor Who cake in the past that featured a Weeping Angel statue but it can’t hold a candle to the cake below.

I’ve seen some rather incredibly detailed cakes before but very few have reached the level of detail and beauty that this Weeping Angel cake has achieved.

This Weeping Angel cake was created by Mike’s Amazing Cakes.  I’m not sure I understand the whole bunny version of the 11th Doctor thing but even its sonic screwdriver is cool!

If I ever have a Weeping Angel cake made for me, these guys are the one to do it because I just can’t believe how incredibly detailed they made this cake!  My only concern is not being able to blink until it is entirely eaten.  I am a fast eater but not blinking for that long would be uncomfortable to say the least.
