Glow in the Dark Yoda

With a height of 52 inches and width of 35 inches, the glow in the dark Yoda wall graphics might not be for everyone.

Flexdex Clear29 LT Green Lighted Skateboard

How cool is this longboard? Starting at $175(US) this green LED powered longboard can be yours, and you just know that with a name like Flexdex it's a quality built ride. Of course the Clear29 LT also comes in other colours, but we here at BL*EEN really don't care about that do we? The crystal Clear29LT Lightboard by Flexdex proves that harmony can emerge when style and function come together as one. The only longboard of its kind, the Clear29LT rides with the same intensity that Flexdex has come to be known for, with an aesthetic appeal that has never been duplicated, better yet seen anywhere else. A highly versatile shape, this longboard can ride anywhere and catches attention everywhere. The Clear29LT is one of the most flexible boards from the 2006 line-up and soaks up road vibrations like a sponge. Pumping, cruising or shredding, there is no end to how much energy this board produces. Clear as glass, the rider can literally watch the asphalt go by through t

The Porsche 917 Le Mans Raceway

This slot car track crammed into a replica racing car makes for quite the collectable, that is, if you can handle the $125,000(US) price tag. This is the full-sized Porsche 917 replica that conceals a 1:32-scale working wooden slot car track faithful to the iconic Le Mans raceway. Painted in the same color scheme and #20 race number—an homage to the classic 1971 movie starring Steve McQueen—the 917 has genuine race-worn GT prototype tires on aluminum three-piece rims and working headlights and taillights. The precisely molded replica cowling opens like a clamshell at the touch of a button to reveal the track within. Resplendent in its handcrafted detail, the raceway is built with realistic landscaping and includes period signage illuminated by working streetlights: the Esso Oil Drop Man near the Ford chicane, the Marchal sign on the famous three-level grandstand over pit row, the Martini barn, and the unmistakable Dunlop "tire" bridge.

For those that do want to get a jump on decorating theor yards, and gardens then the  Creepy Halloween Zombie Gnome Garden Statue Sculpture  is for you.

Steel Foosball Table

Before I get into details about how awesome this foosball table is, I must advise everyone that this unit is no longer being sold, or manufactured. Now that I've unburdened myself with that bit of sad news, let's get on to the details... Crafted in Spain from electropolished steel and iroko wood and distributed through  RH (Restoration Hardware) . Individual leg levers insured a perfect pitch on uneven surfaces, which allowed for indoor or outdoor game play. "Americans call it Foosball. The French call it Baby-Foot. And in Spain, where this deluxe game table is made, they call it Futbolin. Enduringly built of stainless steel and durable iroko wood, our table promises to become a family favorite for years to come. Its handsome design and minimalist palette lend it uncommon sophistication, while its electropolished steel top makes it rugged enough for outdoor use." - RH Dimensions 59½"L x 51½"W x 36½"H; 150 lbs.
