Marshall Amp FridgeMarshall Amp Fridge

Live the Rock and Roll lifestyle, or at least pretend to, with this Marshall Amp Fridge. Disguised to the T as a piece of rock equipment – signature logos, facing, and control knobs in all – this fridge was made for your dorm room/garage/Man Cave. It’s got 4.4 cubic feet of space, can-specific storage and a high efficiency freezer for those frozen burritos and TV dinners. Basically, it’s every bachelor’s dream mini-fridge. A YouTube video attached to the fridge’s announcement described it as such: “The coolest icon in music just got cooler.” Gooooood one. If only it blared out The Sonics or CCR every time it opened. [$299, Marshall]

Leica M9-P White Limited EditionLeica M9-P White Limited Edition

Neither you or I have the disposable income to blow on this limited edition Leica M9-P, but that doesn’t mean we can’t look on in reverence. Designed to commemorate the opening of Leica Daimaru Tokyo, the white M9-P comes with largely the same features as its black and chrome brother – only this one costs $31,770, about $20,000 more than the non-white version. Chalk up the insanely inflated price to the fact that only 50 units are being made. Still, if this strikes your fancy, the white kit will come with a silver Noctilux-M 50mm f/0.95 lens and a leather strap. Bargain of the century? I think I’d rather put down a deposit on a car, but that’s just me.

Replica Portal Gun

Portal is a special type of game that manages to be equal parts story and gameplay, engrossing you in the experience without all the extra flash. If you haven’t given the game a whirl, do yourself a favor and pick it up, especially part 2. And then pick up this piece of 1:1 scale memorabilia. Made by collectible toy maker NECA, the Aperture Science Handheld Portable Device is limited to only 5,000 units EVER, which you can bet will go fast. The Portal gun comes with both bright blue and orange LEDs to signify the different portals, and it even makes the familiar firing sounds. If and when we become subjects to our robot overlords, duck out of the testing facility and outsmart GLaDOS with this amazing replica. And remember, the cake is a lie. [$139, NECA]
