Q*bert With A Mohawk Or Freezer Pop Maker?

Ice Pop Maker Molds, Ice Pop Maker For Kids - Set of Four Sipper Ice Pop Maker BPA Free Popsicle Molds - Make 4 Juice Pops, Fruit Pops And More Inside Freezer - NO Mess Sipper Straw Base For Drinking Treats - 4 Piece

Either this is Q*bert with a mohawk or a clever addition to standard freezer pops. Considering only one of them has Q*bert’s famous orange color, these are more likely a set of Ice Pop Maker Molds With Sipper Straw Base. @!#?@! Oh well, still a pretty cool thing for a freezer pop mold to include — helps to keep those sticky fingers off the video game console.

Portal Companion Cube Cookie Jar

Portal Companion Cube Cookie Jar

Thanks to Portal(s), the Companion Cube can be found everywhere now. There was even a Companion Cube sighting in NYC. However, while that may be all fine and good for fans of the video game, all that really matters is being able to find the Companion Cube where you most want it: on your kitchen countertop and filled with cookies. The Portal Companion Cube Cookie Jar measures seven-inches all around and will gladly accompany you through the house. Or the test chamber, as the case may be.

1-Up All the Other Arcade Mugs

Heat Changing Arcade Mugs

Just when it was thought the pinnacle of videogame-themed drinkware was achieved, along comes a new player to the arcade. Featuring Pac-Man Pac Boy and Space Invader Space Intruder graphics, the Heat Changing Arcade Mugs make a game out of drinking coffee.

Revealing themselves in all their retro-styled graphical glory when filled with a hot beverage, the mugs transform from an empty game field to one filled with attacking aliens and pesky ghosts. It won’t take a pocketful of quarters to defeat these enemies: a few quick gulps of your morning brew and these baddies disappear. Which is a whole lot cheaper than pumping quarter after quarter in the machine to fight the good fight. So, in a way, these mugs actually pay for themselves.

A Toast (and a Shot) to Atari

Atari Arcade Pint Glass 4 Pack

Inspired by a recent Nerd Approved post, I felt it necessary to coordinate my drinkware with retro video game art. Most important when updating a drinkware collection is the necessity to acquire glasses for any occasion, from a black tie affair, for which this Atari Black Pint Glass 4 Pack would be appropriate, to everyday use such as the pint glasses in the Atari Arcade Pint Glass 4 Pack would provide. Of course, no evening would be complete without the Atari Shot Glass 6 Pack.

And it should go without saying, coffee in the morning is necessary to wash the shame away. Only one coffee cup in the world would suffice: Atari “You Never Forget Your First” Coffee Mug.

What better way to celebrate Atari than by putting them in a gallery…

Retrosink: Pac-Man drinking glasses

Pac-Man Drinking Glasses

Here’s a blast from the past: Pac-Man Drinking Glasses. You may not be able to pick these up new anymore, but they’re still around. I stumbled across this recent eBay auction and thought they deserved a mention. Plus they look so damn cool. These fine glasses are meant only for the discerning consumer, of course. The set of eight went for $23.00. Click on the source for other great Pac-Man goodies.
