Green Army Man Wine Bottle Holder: Fire in the Hole!

Because nothing says I think it’s time for a drink like being reminded you have children and their toys are spread all over the house just waiting to be stepped on, barware manufacturer Foster & Rye is selling this Army Man Bottle Holder (affiliate link), a wine bottle holder in the form of a green army man holding a bazooka. Fire in the hole! In this case, the fire being wine, and the hole being your mouth.

Cast from polyresin, the army man holds a single standard (750mL) wine bottle and looks good doing it. As good as I look holding a box of wine on one shoulder like a boombox? My wife is shaking her head no, which hurts. I want a whole platoon lined up in my wine cellar. And by wine cellar, I obviously mean crawlspace, which is where I already keep the more expensive bottles because all the spiders do a surprisingly good job of guarding them from my wife.

Electronic Endless Bubble Wrap Popping Device: Goodbye, Stress

Stress: it’s a silent killer. Ninjas too. And what better way to relieve a little stress and anxiety than popping bubble wrap? Introducing the ∞ Bubble Wrap AIR from Bandai (affiliate link), an electronic device that mimics the popping of bubble wrap, with just the right amount of tactile pressure needed to press a bubble, resulting in a satisfying “POP” from the integrated speaker. You know, just ten times louder than regular bubble wrap. WHAT? I CAN’T HEAR YOU.

Not only is the device ten times louder than regular bubble wrap, but at random intervals, it also plays one of seven different sounds upon a successful bubble pop, including a cat meowing and baseball hit. That’s… weird. Of course, we’re talking about an electronic bubble wrap popper, so I guess normal flew out the window a long time ago.

I’m seriously considering buying one. Because one time I was so stressed about work I popped an entire roll of bubble wrap before the employees at the UPS Store were finally able to push me out the door. Now, whenever I need to send a package I have to use FedEx.

Playmobil Releasing Giant 39-Inch USS Enterprise Playset: Beam Me Up, Scotty

Hot on the heels of their successful Back to the Future DeLorean and Marty McFly’s truck playsets, Playmobil is releasing another set aimed at adults with this giant Star Trek: The Original Series USS Enterprise NCC-1701. I’ve already added it to both my birthday and Christmas lists.

The 148-piece USS Enterprise measures 39-inches long and features numerous light and sound effects, as well as dialog from the original show. Playable areas include the ship’s bridge (with a place to put your smartphone in landscape mode to act as the bridge’s monitor, seen above) and engineering room (with dilithium core that powers the ship on and sounds an alarm when removed, seen below).

The set includes seven figures (Captain Kirk, Spock, Lt. Uhura, Doctor McCoy, Hikaru Sulu, Scotty, and Chekov), some tribbles, phasers, and other accessories as well as hardware to hang the ship, and a display stand. It will be available on September 21st with a retail price of $500. That’s a lot of space bucks!

I was just about ready for Scotty to beam me up until I heard the price. I can’t even remember the last time I spent $500 on a toy and got away with it, but you can rest assured it’s only because my wife hasn’t found out about it yet.
