A Weapon of Truly Epic Proportions: Alice’s Vorpal Blade

Posted by Drea Avellan Categories: Culture, Electronic Arts,

DescriptionI may not be a blood-thristy twisted Alice, but I do enjoy beautiful things. In commemoration of the original Alice, Epic Weapons, in collaboration with Electronic Arts, have created a replica of the Vorpal Blade from American McGee’s Alice. It is adorned with etched molds which replicate this weapon in all its beautiful detail. Since this is a high quality replica made from Japanese stainless steel and standing at 18 5/8 inches in length, Epic Weapons is offering only 1,000 of these commemorative Alice knifes. They are now available on the Epic Weapons website for $89.95, so get them while they are still available! Stand is not included, but available for purchase for $19.95. And while you are at it, I think you should send me one too.

Barack Obama Action Figure

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Misc. Tech, Movies, Toys,

DescriptionWe already know that the U.S. is now obsessed with the first family and are scrambling for memorabilia, from dolls named Malia and Sasha to a collector’s edition of Spiderman, but when we saw Japan’s tribute we really cracked up. In an odd world where good still wins over evil, the president will certainly triumph over Darth Vader. The action figure set comes with 3 sets of hands, two ties, microphone, megaphone, watch, flag and stool (but no now-approved BlackBerry) at a price of ¥8090 (~$91.00.) Light sabers sold separately.

Live Autographs Get a Celeb to Do You a Favor

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: Home Entertainment, Internet,

Tricia HelferA new start-up is promoting personalized video messages from your fave celeb. At Live Autographs you tell him/her what you would like to ask or say to another as a gift. You receive a video, autographed memorabilia verified by a security-encrypted barcode and a free video download. Prices start at $149 from participants like William Shatner, Dave Navarro, Hulk Hogan, Tricia Helfer and many of the cast of “Lost.” You had better be quick about it though, as they reach a certain limit and sell out. We think Captain Kirk is the first casualty as we tested the system and were denied his services.

If you would like to partake or simply keep track of the action, Julien’s will be broadcasting on national TV and stream video through their site on April 21 through 25. We expect things will not go cheaply. A Limited Edition Catalog, signed by the Pop King himself, is available for $500.00, $100.00 without the signature. No word on if any of this is related to Michael Jackson’s medical issues.
