geek girl | december 30, 2012

2012 has been such a great geeky year with so many awesome movies, video games, books, and toys being released, not to mention the amazing fan builds and DIY projects that have been rounded up here. Today I'm posting the final Geek Girl for 2012, but this feature will definitely be back in 2013- which is looking to be an even greater geeky year, if such a thing is possible!


From the top left:

  • Roqoo Depot took the opportunity of an actual petition to the White House to build a Death Star to inject a bit of post-election political humor into fandom. 
  • The latest edition of Star Wars Insider magazine includes a short story by Timothy Zahn entitled Heist. That man is everywhere these days!
  • This real, live, working TARDIS PC is officially licensed by the BBC and is available in a variety of configurations.
  • Bit Rebels shows how to build your own iPhone dock out of Legos!
  • Home interior company Graham Brown has released the Spellbound collection of wallpapers for those geeks who want to do a bit more "grown up" decorating.
  • Remember those Stargate themed Best-Lock (Lego compatible) sets I posted about a while back? They're finally available at ThinkGeek!
  • This floppy disk coffee table takes me back to my college days in the PC lab...ah, how I do love USB drives now!
  • How amazing are these Legend of Zelda themed wedding rings posted at Fashionably Geek?
  • Sometimes one of the geeky sites in my Google Reader posts something that crosses over to the craftier side of this blog, but rarely does it work the other way. These DIY Super Mario canvases at Write. Click. Scrapbook., though, just begged to be shared here!
