The LEGO Sushi Bar Restaurant

legosushishopLike my fellow Retrenders super blogger Stevie Jang, we like LEGOs, but we usually follow the instructions.  Yes, I like having a the manual in-hand and looking at the pictures to see how it’s been built.  I’ve seen lots crazy imaginative LEGO builds, but this MOC Ito Sushi Bar LEGO build is insanely neat.  Built by Denil Oh, this sushi bar has incredible details and even right down to the sushi pieces with custom stickers to enhance the diorama restaurant build.

Funko Pop! Disney: Finding Nemo Figures

funko pop nemoThese past couple of years toy company Funko has been knocking it out of the ballpark with their Pop! vinyl toy figures.  These super cute figures are from the Disney Pop! line featuring 4 characters from the Pixar animated film Finding Nemo:  Nemo, Dory, Crush and Bruce.   It’s just too bad that these Finding Nemo Pop! figures won’t be able to drop this Christmas season!  These Pop! vinyl collectibles will be available next year January 14th, 2013.

Foodie Reading: Oishinbo

oshinobo

I’m not a huge manga reader, I grew up with comic books and graphic novels, but a friend of mine told me to check out this cool manga about Japanese food since I was a such a foodie monster.  I first read Oishinbo – Ramen and Gyoza volume and was totally hook by not just the art but the reading and explanation of certain Japanese dishes.  Each little episode takes a specific dish and through the characters explains the history of dish, ingredients, how it’s prepared and so on.  It’s like watching the Food Channel.  I really enjoyed all 7 volumes of this collection.  A bit of warning – you will be hungry and crave Japanese food after each little episode.

MSRP:  $12.99USD for print edition, $4.99USD for digital edition.

The Sushi Bazooka

I am a high volume sushi-eater at home. My wife just can’t keep up with the wrapping while I wolf down the sushi. Now with this gadget, I might have just met my match. Just simply open the device, put in the rice, fish, etc, and then shoot it out like a caulk gun. Heck, maybe this weekend, I can just put to use my caulk gun from Home Depot before this comes through the mail from Japan.
