When you imagine a plumber showing up at your birthday party, I suspect you would prefer to see him in the form of a cake rather than a real plumber (nobody wants to see plumbers crack on their birthday).  Well, if that describes you, then this Super Mario Bros inspired birthday cake is one you want to see!

This awesome birthday cake features Mario sitting on top of a red and white mushroom and the detail on the Mario figure is quite impressive!

This cake was made by Lola May Cake Company and I think it is safe to say they did a pretty good job with it!  I would say that somebody who I am guessing is named Finlay had a rather awesome birthday!

As big of a pain in the butt as the NES was to operate with the need to constantly blow out the cartridges and stuff, I think it will always be my favorite console largely because of the games like Super Mario Bros.

Well, Kevin, the same guy that made the awesome Legend of Zelda NES console mod that I posted about recently is back at it again and this time he made a Mario themed NES console mod!  When it comes to modding old gaming consoles like the NES, Kevin seems to be one of the best!  Hopefully he will sell his mods because I would love to have an NES like this one or the Zelda one!

I was already kind of kicking myself for not making plans to go to the San Diego Comic-Con this year but now I am really hating myself.  Warner Bros is going to display all of the Batmobiles together for the first time at some some kind of extra event at SDCC called Extra at Comic-Con.  They are even showing off the new camouflage Tumbler from the Dark Knight Rises movie that comes out soon!

If you are going to the San Diego Comic-Con, you can find all of the Batmobiles on display from the 12th-15th at Bayfield Park.  To give you an idea of how awesome this is, below is the descriptions of all the cars and a picture of a small Batmobile traffic jam showing off all of them except the new one that will be unveiled at the event.

  • Adam West’s 1955 Lincoln Futura. Designed by George Barris, this original Batmobile was featured in the cult classic television series and 1966’s Batman, the Movie.
  • Michael Keaton’s Batmobile from 1989’s Batman and 1992’s Batman Returns. Sleek and powerful with a central turbine, the vehicles’ slightly retro design followed Tim Burton’s art deco look of the films.
  • Revamped for Joel Schumacher’s 1995 Batman Forever, with bat-lighting and extended fins, Val Kilmer’s hot rod had the ability to drive up walls.
  • Schumacher updated the Batmobile once again for George Clooney in 1997’s Batman & Robin.At 33 feet long and a top speed of 350 mph with afterburner thrust, this was the largest and fastest Batmobile on the road.
  • The Tumbler designed for Christopher Nolan’s 2005 Batman Begins and 2008’s The Dark Knightis the prototype military vehicle designed by the character Lucius Fox (Morgan Freeman).

Around here, the only real customizations you will see on vehicles are tiny wheels and maybe some hydraulics to make the lowriders bounce around while driving down the road.  Well, those modifications are pretty tame (and kind of lame) compared to this awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles van!

Jason Ybarra built this awesome Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles van that looks pretty close to the one in the cartoon from the 80s and was actually based off of the toy version of the van.  This van is a 1972 VW Transporter that cost $2,000 to buy and then an additional $18,000 to overhaul into the TMNT van.

This 70 horsepower van gets about 17 miles to the gallon and lacks many of the comforts of today’s like air conditioning.  That alone would make me not want this van, no matter how awesome it is!

The picture below is impressive but if you really want a sense for how amazing this Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles van is, check out the video over at Crave Online.  I was going to embed the video below but I couldn’t figure out how to turn off the autoplay feature.

Not long ago, I posted an awesome Legend of Zelda necklace that featured the Kokiri Forest spiritual stone, but for those that want more than one spiritual stone, then this necklace is for you!

This Legend of Zelda inspired necklace features the Kokiri Forest spiritual stone, Zora’s Sapphire, and Goron’s Ruby.

Etsy seller dweebishdelights is the one selling this awesome Legend of Zelda spiritual stone necklace for just $45.  And that’s not all!  It also comes in a small jewelry box!  Sounds like a bargain to me!

I’ve never done the photo booth thing, but if I ever did, I would want it to be inside of the TARDIS!

I would have never even thought about it, but the TARDIS seems about the perfect size for making a good photo booth out of.  Well, that is exactly what Steve Long did!  He built a portable TARDIS photo booth that recently made its debut at a wedding.

This impressive 4′ x 4′ TARDIS photo booth is even officially licensed by the BBC so the guy can make back the money he spent building it (and then some I would assume).  Unfortunately, when it made its debut at the wedding, while it was a huge success, only one guy (the one in the picture) out of the 270 guests knew what the TARDIS was.
