LEGO Sushi Conveyor Model: Everything Is Awesome with Wasabi

The only thing better than a good piece of sushi is one that comes delivered right to your face on a train, ready to eat. The sushi train is quite popular in Japan, but has also popped up in cities around the world in recent years. For those unfamiliar with the concept, it’s basically a conveyor belt that makes a loop from the kitchen into the restaurant, and in front of the sushi bar.

Patrons then grab as much food as they want from the conveyor – or send their order back for something they don’t see on the sushi train. At the end of the meal, the server tallies up the total of pieces you ate based on the color and number of plates in front of you, and you check out. Well a fan of both sushi trains and LEGO decided to make a brick-built tribute to this entertaining dining experience.

Beyond the Brick’s Joshua Hanlon was fortunate enough to stop by Japan Brickfest 2018 where he came across Dr. Peisan’s wonderful motorized creation, which doles out LEGO sushi dishes to tiny LEGO patrons. Check it out in action:

What a lovely little scene, with all the people sitting around enjoying some delicious fish, eggs, rice, seaweed, and wasabi as they go round and round. I appreciate that the builder used BrickHeadz style figures for each patron instead of Minifigs too. I think that gives them so much more character.

I love this adorable little construction. It makes me want to build one for myself – and it makes me hungry for sushi tonight. Seriously though, why can’t more meals be served this way?

FunkO’s Cereal Has the Coolest Toys in the Box

Back in the day, the thing to do early on a Saturday morning was eat a huge bowl of sugary cereal and watch cartoons. I tended to choose my cereal at the store not based on taste, and certainly not on its nutritional value, but on the cool factor of the toy promised inside. In other words, I’d have totally bought FunkO’s cereal.

Each box of the colorful cereal has Funko Pop! action figures inside. The flavors aren’t noted, but I would assume the red cereal tastes like strawberry, the green tastes like apple, and the blue tastes like blueberry. Or I could be totally wrong. Each cereal is designed to change the color of the milk it’s floating in too.

In addition to Funko’s own mascot, the cereal can be had in Cuphead & Mugman, Megaman, Freddy Krueger, Jason Voorhees, and Gollum varieties. Other cereals will come later this year. How much they cost and where can you buy them is the next question.

Pizza Box Turns into a Tray for Eating in Bed

I’d never want to eat pizza in my bed because when pizza is in my hands I go all omnomnom and make a huge mess. I’d so get the sauce and random toppings all over the sheets, and wake up with pepperoni stuck to my face. For those who do like to eat in bed, the folks over at Boston Pizza teamed up with John St advertising agency to create the most genius pizza box ever. I mean this is way cooler than that one Apple created.

This box comes to you like any normal pizza box, but it turns into a tray for eating it while lying in your bed. The box includes instructions for converting the box into a bed tray, all while the pizza remains in the box. While I’m still unlikely to eat pizza in bed, I’d totally use it on the couch while I catch up on The Walking Dead.

Sadly, the box isn’t a permanent fixture at Boston Pizza. It’s only for a Father’s Day promotion the company is running from June 6 to 11, so if you want one, you’d better move fast. Now I’m hungry for some pizza.
