CHARITY AUCTION: The Last of Us 12” Premium Statue Collectibles

1 comment Published in the last of us on 24 July 2014, 16:46 by Che

We are auctioning this highly collectible statue based on the popular PlayStation 3 and 4 game The Last of Us to raise funds for the Starship Foundation.

This is a 12” premium statue of Joel and Ellie, the game's main characters, created by high-end replica makers Project Triforce. As a bonus we will also throw in a copy of The Last of Us game for PlayStation 4.

Only a handful of these statues made their way to New Zealand – so they are hard to come by. This is a very unique chance for a gamer to get their hands on this rare collectible and help a great charity. Swing by our TradeMe listing now to bid on this awesome collectible; auction closes on Tuesday at 10pm.

100% of the proceeds of this sale will be donated to The Starship Foundation. The Starship Foundation is a social-profit organisation that raises funds so Starship Children's Health can better care for its young patients.


Rise Against release their phenomenal new album, The Black Market! Music

Add a comment Published in Rise Against and The Black Market on 24 July 2014, 11:52 by Dan

After 15 years and 6 absolutely fantastic albums, punk rockers Rise Against are back once again with The Black Market, a hard hitting album packed to the brim with raw energy & emotion.

Not content to sit back and say nothing, Rise Against once again deliver 12 stirring tracks with a ferocious intensity; guaranteed to get your blood pumping and brain ticking. There's a point when you realise that this album is like none of its predecessors, sure it has the same high intensity energy, but something is definitely different this time around.

“I underestimated just what a Rise Against song is, what the lyrics are and how they can sometimes take you to a dark place,” explains Tim. “I used to go into songs and walk away virtually unscathed. When I was creating this record I was having a hard time walking away from it – I was wallowing in the sadness and the angst of the songs.”

NEW Captain Jules' Everlasting Steampunk Flask! Home & Living

Add a comment Published in homewares and cosplay on 23 July 2014, 17:12 by Stacey

We LOVE steam punk style. The tiny top hats, the goggles (that do nothing!), the corsets, the leather, the crazy weapons. We love that there's no canon, no official characters to cosplay, so you're free to let your imagination go wild when designing a steampunk outfit.

This amazing new steampunk accessory – Captain Jules' Everlasting Steampunk Flask named after..... well, actually, we just made up Captain Jules ;-) it's up to you, geek friend, to invent who Captain Jules is or was, and why you are currently toting his incredibly handsome Everlasting Steampunk Flask!

Truly invaluable to any traveler, motorist, sportsman or businessman, this unique flask will hold up to 200ml of whichever medicinal tonic tickles your fancy – and looks super stylish while doing so.

The full grain leather holster features a 7 cm long belt loop, and the flask itself is stainless steel with copper cladding. The gauge on the outside is adjustable, so it can read whatever you want!



"Inglorious Fruits & Vegetables" - Giving Produce a Second Chance at Life Food & Drink

2 comments Published on 23 July 2014, 14:29 by Paul

Like us, you may have come across this video on the internet recently. As lovers of food, we think this clever marketing campaign is a great way of raising awareness about food waste.

Intermarché (French supermarket) launched their “Inglorious Fruits & Vegetables” campaign comprising of a film, print, poster and radio campaign. The campaign celebrates the beauty of the “Grotesque Apple”, the “Ridiculous Potato”, the “Hideous Orange”, the “Failed Lemon”, the “Disfigured Eggplant”, the “Ugly Carrot”, and the “Unfortunate Clementine”. These fruits and vegetables are normally rejected by supermarkets and never make it to the shelf. But really, there's nothing wrong with them – they have the same nutritional value as their better looking counterparts and consumers are willing to pay for them. Intermarché offered their “Inglorious Fruits & Vegetables” for 30% less. That's a big saving on your weekly shop and gives fruits like the “Failed Lemon” a second chance in life.

What do you think about this campaign? Should New Zealand supermarkets jump on the bandwagon? Would you buy inglorious fruits and vegetables for 30% less? Let us know in the comments below!

We love overseas shipments at Mighty Ape. It means we can get products that will be hard to find elsewhere in New Zealand. Today we are excited because we have just received an import shipment of Fisher Price toys.

Fisher-Price is a brand we all know and love. When something is made by Fisher-Price you know it will be a quality baby or pre-school toy.

One of our favourite products from this shipment is the Classic Two Tune TV. Two enduring melodies play while charming pictures scroll across the screen. Just as the original, this Fisher-Price Classic Two Tune TV recreates the sweet allure of “Row, Row, Row Your Boat” and “London Bridge Is Falling Down.” Now, how cool is that?

EVGA is celebrating their 15th anniversary, which in itself is worthy of a slow clap. But the cool thing is, we are the ones getting the presents!

They are running a wicked competition where you simply record 30 seconds of game play using ShadowPlay and upload the clip to YouTube. Once done you submit your links to the competition page and hope. :)

Make sure you nail it with your entries, there are already some pretty amazing clips up on their site.

Get recording guys! Anyone with a GTX 650 and above already has the ability to record using ShadowPlay.
