It comes in pints?

It’s one of those lines from the Lord of the Rings movies that you’ve no doubt quoted to a friend when you were at the bar. Well, having sat down with a beer and a cider tonight, I figured this was the best way to finish off a week of geeky posts.

Check out the Lord of the Rings Etched Bar-Ware;

One from the Inn of the Prancing Pony in Bree and the other from The Green Dragon in Hobbiton, thanks of course to the cool folks at Think Geek.

“This, my friend, is a pint.”

Amazing Jock Detective Cover

It’s been great to hear more mention of the good old fashioned monthly comics on the Frogpants network, which gives me the chance to point you all to some amazing artwork which will decorate the front cover of Detective Comics, issue #873 (which if my math is correct will come out end of January 2011).

The amazing cover is drawn by Jock, maybe best known for his work on 2000 AD and on The Losers, but maybe more recently for his work on Detective Comics in the first third of 2010. Check out his website for more artwork to admire and drool over.

Etch A Sketch iPad Case

I don’t own an iPad. I probably never will own an iPad. Not ’cause I don’t want to, but because I can’t afford one. But if I did own one, I would definitely consider getting this case for it.

Maybe Scott will soon be seen sporting one of these around the office.

Star Wars Your Life Up

Ever wondered how you could Star Wars your life up a bit more? Sure, you’ve got the Star Wars limited edition posters framed in your bedroom, your wife will pull out the gold bikini when she thinks your feeling down, and your shelves are simply busting with novels of the Expanded Universe.

But it’s not enough is it.

Thankfully, you have options.

Chewbacca it up with these awesome sneakers (runners for those of us not living within the US) and this stylish “manager’s coat”.

You’ll be the envy of all your friends, if for no other reason than they’ll think you are really warm and cosy.

(Thanks to GeekSugar for the image and links to Adidas and SneakerFreaker.)

Not enough? Carry your lunch box or laptop in style with the latest genius from ThinkGeek; the Boba Fett Plush Rocket Backpack.

But it’s just not enough is it. You’ve stunned your friends with your coolness and your hip styles, but now you have to drop their jaws to the floor when they come over to play some old school NES.

Have no fear, because Brian DeVitis, a UCLA mechanical engineering grad student, has spent the past three years building this.

You can check out the progress of the build at DeVitis’ gallery or check out Fort90’s rundown. But in short, this bad boy has eleven integrated game consoles, a projector and eight-way sound.

Surely now you’ll be the coolest one on the block. Right?
