Doctor Who thing: TARDIS Transformer toy (you can make yourself)

Inspired by this T-shirt design, by Jason Casteel:

TARDIS Transformer

Ellindsey designed a TARDIS Transformer toy that goes from this:

TARDIS Transformer

to this:

TARDIS Transformer

But wait. It gets better. Go to MakerBot Thingiverse, and you can download the instructions for 3D-printing out the pieces and making one for yourself.

Truly, we live in wondrous times. If you have access to a 3D printer, anyway.

Via Topless Robot.

Thanks to Sean and Patrick for the heads-up.

AAAH! Optimus and the Doctor together in one awesomely geeky shirt/toy? I SO want both.

Alas, I have yet to even see a 3D printer anywhere. The t-shirt, though, I may have to buy if it’s still available.

I haven’t seen a 3D printer either. I’m starting to doubt whether they really exist, or if someone is pranking us nerds.

libraries are getting into the 3D printing as part of community creative projects. I know Orlando’s Orange County Libraries got one.

Crossovers make me think of this:

There’s an artist name of Dean Trippe who drew the end-all-be-all crossover fanart of the Eleventh Doctor inviting a scared child into his sanctuary… surrounded by every conceivable hero in geek history from Batman to Speed Racer to Veronica Mars to the Iron Giant to Sherlock Holmes to, yes, Jed Bartlet (he’s on the tv screen).

And of course Trippe got nitpicked by people wondering where the Babylon 5 and StarBlazers crew are.
