Video Game Crafts ‘N Gear #7: Minecraft Torch, Zelda Painted Shoes, Pokemon Toy Cars

Welcome again to Video Game Crafts ‘N Gear! This week we finally cover some Minecraft swag, Link goes on another adventure on your feet and Pikachu and friends transform into vehicles.

Minecraft Torch

ThinkGeek provides yet more awesome video game merchandise in the form of Minecraft. You may have prepared your zombie apocalypse survival plans, but have you ever considered the inevitable Creeper onslaught? Didn’t think so. Well, now you can buy a real life Minecraft torch!

While this little beauty looks great mounted on a wall, it is also a portable device. It’s not just for decoration either, as the fiery end lights up. Unfortunately the officially licensed item is out of stock at the time of writing, but keep an eye on ThinkGeek if you’re planning on purchasing the perfect festive gift for yourself or a Minecraft fan.

Zelda Painted Shoes

Ever loved The Legend of Zelda series so much that you wish you could take it with you everywhere? DeviantArt user shikamaru-link has made this dream come true with his painted Zelda shoes.

Using acrylics, he has recreated the iconic screenshot at the start of the original NES game on one shoe, and official artwork of the same game on another. The end result is a detailed, accurate and beautiful pair of footwear!

Pokemon Toy Cars

How do you get a hundred Pikachus on a car? You Pokem… okay, you’ve heard that one. It’s time envy the Japanese for the billionth time, as Tomy’s latest Tomica toy car range is getting some adorable Pokemon lovin’.

If the elemental critters aren’t your thing, there are also some brilliant Mario Kart, Batman and Transformers vehicles. If only Pikachu cars were real… oh wait! Real life doesn’t suck all that much after all.
