Geektastic Hand-Painted Batman, PvZ, Walking Dead Easter Eggs

Easter Eggs are AWESOME. Someone hides them... YOU hunt them. Crafty Rene-l took some ordinary eggs and individually hand-painted each of them with acrylics/sharpies into Batman, Superman, PvZ Zombies, the Walking Dead Cast, My Little Pony, Star Wars Angry Birds and more!

This is the Easter Egg hunt of epic proportions. Seriously though Rene-l... good work, you painted a TON of awesomely geeky eggs like a PRO.

Read on to see (hunt) them all...

Praise Boba... praise him. Check out the newest addition to the stained glass collection by mclanesmemories who brought us such awesomeness as the Boba Fett Helmet Lamp.

Star Wars Jurassic Park Mashup: A Long Time Ago in the Making

Who knew that when the commando team, lead by General Han Solo, confronted AT-ATs and AT-STs on the far moon of Endor, that it would match up so well with the trailer for Jurassic Park.

 One Minute Galactica of Slacktory put this A/V treat together that, with some solid editing, turned dinosaurs and the Rebel Alliance into "JurAT-AT Park".

Thanks to i<3chaos for the t-rexheadsup.

The 1/2 Inch Millennium Falcon Papercraft is MOST Impressive

She may not look like much, but she's got it where it counts, kid.

If by kid you mean space amoeba, then let's take her to Alderaan! David, Canavese of otherlife art used a mixture of paper and Yoda folding skills to produce this teeny tiny Falcon that is only half an inch in size.

"This Millennium Falcon model is approximately half an inch long (1.27 cm) and is made entirely from paper. It took about eight hours to complete."

Snow Jump to Lightspeed in this Custom Millennium Falcon Sled

The one thing snow is good for is SLEDDING. Sean Murray built this awesome 'Millennium Falcon Sled' for his Jedi-in-training daughter. Mind you this sled is built for a Human Dogsled Race where Sean will pull his child around in the old hunk of junk like a wookiee.

"The sled is made entirely of cardboard and mounted to a plastic toboggan underneath."

Watch a First Person Perspective Lightsaber Battle 'Vader Strikes'

Lightsaber battles are happening in the FIRST PERSON thanks to the 'Stunt People'. They used a GoPro camera to capture the footage and then tweaked it up with some FX to put a bit of a cool spin on a Jedi battle. Pretty awesome right?

Side Note: Last night my computer had this video sitting in a tabbed window, when all of the sudden, the video randomly started playing at 3:30am with sounds of a lightsaber battle at FULL volume. My wife thought someone had broken in and was about to start attacking us with my own saber collection and whimpered as she told me to go fight them off. I, being her Jedi warrior, force-pushed the mute button and went back to bed.

Thanks to obvwin reader Blake Faucette for the Jedi tip and destroying my slumber!
