I enjoy photos where photographers use toy figures combined with real life things set in unique ways, especially when it is done well, like in this “May the Fourth be with you” commemoration. Because I am a geek like that… What is “May the Fourth”? Why, it’s Star Wars Day, of course! An unofficial holiday in May created by fans to honour the Star Wars franchise created by George Lucas. Like the millions of worldwide fans, I can hardly wait for Dec-2015!!

Have I ever told you that Flickr is a geek’s paradise? Once in a while, you’ll see a photo on Flickr that represent the nerd in me. Like this one of some creative Lego by kwi-chang – I would buy this!! This reminds me of the gripping and highly-acclaimed Evangelion anime, and more recently Linebarrels (Click on the links to watch these anime right now). You know, in order to create this, one would have to be a Lego-maniac and have quite a big collection of bricks already. I wish I had his creativity. Remember, it’s best to see this photo on your PC or iPad, instead of your tiny smartphone!

At this year’s tenth annual BrickCon, a convention for Lego hobbyists that took place between Oct. 6-7, 2012, two fans created a 20,000 piece Batcave!! I am always amazed at how creative people can be with their Lego, but this 100-pound masterpiece is on a higher level. Carlyle Livingston II, 48, and Wayne Hussey, 58, spent three months and 400 hours putting it together in their garage. Must click for larger resolution now!

See the intricate cavern work and the bats!

OMG this is epic. Watch this video of two cars drive a real-life Hot Wheels loop-de-loop track!

Rally car driver Tanner Foust and Hollywood stuntman Greg Tracy drive two all-wheel-drive advance rally spec coupe cars side-by-side around a double vertical 66-foot loop to set new world record at X Games on June 30, 2012.

The track, two football fields long, was modeled on Mattel’s Hot Wheels Double Dare Snare toy racetrack set.
