My infinitely cooler-than-me friend Tim sent me this awesome Comicon-only miniature version of the uber-expensive Goliathon 83 Infinity Beam Projector Raygun (part of the Dr. Grordbort collection). What makes it even cooler is that he had the raygun’s designer, Greg Broadmore, sign the box!

Although lacking in the glass details of the original, the gun has a nice degree of detail. It still doesn’t beat my fave: the Victorious Mongoose 1902a Concealable Ray Pistol in cuteness. Anyone have a spare $500 lying around they’d like to send me?

Tim also turned me on to the hardcover Doctor Grordbort’s Contrapulatronic Dingus Directory which is going for only $10 on Amazon right now. Needless to say, it was ordered, but only after I also pre-ordered the collector’s edition of Rowling’s The Tales of Beedle the Bard. I can’t believe how close to the original this replica looks. It’s gotten me excited about Potter all over again! The best part is that the net proceeds of the book sales go to a children’s charity in Great Britain. Oh, but expect to pay a replica price: the collector’s edition is $100, but it sure beats the $8 paperback.

    I know this was in English, but I truly have no idea what it said. You’re f’ing awesome, regardless. There is no person “infinitely cooler” than you, dearie.
