Fast Company recently posted a fascinating profile about Omni Consumer Products, a San Francisco Bay-area company that develops real versions of fictional products from movies. The company, which takes its name from the fictional megacorporation from the Robocop franchise, was founded in 2006 by Peter Hottelet. Since its launch, Omni Consumer Products has released roughly a product per year, including Fight Club Soap, George Takei-branded Eau My Cologne Spray, and a Tru Blood soft drink.

Forsaken, A Line of True Blood Beauty Products

True Blood

According to InStyle, HSN is going to roll out Forsaken, a line of beauty products based on the popular television series, True Blood. It includes nail and lip colors developed by celebrity manicurist Deborah Lippmann, fragrances by Givaudan, a scented candle by DL & Co., a body cream, a body veil, and more. Lippmann’s scented polishes will have vampirish names like ‘Let it Bleed’, ‘Strange Love’ and ‘Bad Blood’. There is also the Sookie Sookie Set which includes Fairy Dust (“mortal putty taupe”) and Human Nature (“ethereal shimmer”) nail polish. The lip color is (naturally) blood red and called ‘Bite Me’. The line is expected to be available in August 2012 on HSN. Take a look at InStyle’s image gallery for all of the products. In 2009, you may recall that we posted about Tru Blood O Positive, a blood orange carbonated drink (based on the show’s synthetic blood beverage for vampires) created by Omni Consumer Products.

Eau My Cologne Spray by George Takei

Set phasers to stunning!

Actor George Takei — best known for his role as Hikaru Sulu on Star Trek — has released his new Eau My Cologne Spray, a “clean, refreshing fragrance for men and women.” The name of George’s cologne is a play on his catch phrase, “Oh My!” It is available to pre-order online from Amazon and will begin shipping on December 15th, 2013.

Subtle and charming, with top notes of mandarin zest, Italian bergamot and fresh ozone transitioning to night-blooming jasmine, white freesia petals and grated ginger. Sensual woods, crystalized amber, soft skin musk, and vetiver will delight you when dry.

Photos: Singapore’s Supertrees, Solar-Powered Vertical Gardens

Supertrees

Earlier this year, Pete Hottelet of Omni Consumer Products shared photos with us of his visit to Hacienda Nápoles, the mansion of the late Columbian drug lord Pablo Escobar (which is now a theme park). He has since traveled to Singapore and photographed the recently opened Supertree Grove, a forest of mechanical solar-powered tree structures which are part of Singapore’s “Gardens by the Bay” redevelopment project. These metal-framed structures are vertical gardens, 18 in total, ranging in height from 82 to 164 feet tall. Pete dined at the restaurant found at the top of the main Supertree and states that the Roman-esque statue in the bathroom “sort of looks like Tyrone Biggums from Chappelle Show.” Later, he shot this video of the OCBC Garden Rhapsody, the evening sound and light show featuring the trees.

Our friend Pete Hottelet of Omni Consumer Products shared photos with us of his recent visit to Hacienda Nápoles, the mansion of the late Columbian drug lord Pablo Escobar. The estate is now open to the public as a quirky theme park (it’s called, El Parque Temático de la Hacienda Nápoles). Escobar died in 1993 and, in 2007, the 7.7 square mile estate, located in Puerto Triunfo (100 miles east of Medellin, Colombia), opened as a very unique tourist attraction by the Municipality of Puerto Triunfo.

Stay Puft Quality Mini Marshmallows

Stay Puft

Stay Puft Quality Marshmallows are vanilla flavored mini-marshmallows packaged in a box that sports both the good and evil Stay Puft Marshmallow Man from the 1984 film, Ghostbusters. They are available to purchase from ThinkGeek. You may remember we previously posted about Stay Puft Caffeinated Gourmet Marshmallows by Omni Consumer Products.

Delicious bite-size puffed marshmallows, with a hint of vanilla. Vacuum-packed inside a collectible 2-sided box that features the happy Mister Stay Puft on one side and the angry (yet still fluffy) Destroyer of Worlds on the other.

Fight Club Soap

Fight Club Soap is a real bar of soap that was created using the original props and artwork from 1999 cult classic Fight Club. This pink bar of caffeinated soap is a product from Omni Consumer Products, “a product development company…with a focus on licensing, defictionalization, and reverse-branding”. They are also known for their Stay Puft Quality Marshmallows and Tru Blood O Positive. Fight Club Soap is available to purchase at their website.

Plenty of soaps are made with natural ingredients. Usually what that means is that they’re made of ground-up flowers and tropical fruits.

If you’re going to shower, be a man about it. Introducing the only soap made with electrolytes, caffeine, and punching. Don’t waste your time with anything less.

You’re welcome.

Community Comes Together To Crowd Fund Robocop Statue In Detroit

On February 6, Detroit Mayor David Bing’s twitter account received the following helpful suggestion from user @MT: “Philadelphia has statue of Rocky & Robocop would kick Rocky’s butt. He’s a GREAT ambassador for Detroit.” Over the next six days, the power of the internet coalesced into detroitneedsrobocop.com, a Kickstarter project for a seven foot tall statue of Robocop and more than $50,000 in donations. The biggest donor was Pete Hottelet of the Bay Area’s Omni Consumer Products, a movie merchandising company named after the evil conglomerate from the Robocop films, who provided $25,000.
