A few days ago, we published a special illustration by Sysadminotaur creator Patrick, which featured 26 Easter eggs from the geek world. Now we can share the much-anticipated answers.
***WARNING: If you haven’t had a chance to find all 26 Easter eggs, then don’t go any further. As Gandalf would say: YOU SHALL NOT PASS!***
Below are 17 of the somewhat easy Easter eggs:
- Pac-Man ghost
- Death Star in construction on the 3D printer
- Totoro plush toy on the top shelf
- Mario question box next to Totoro
- USS Enterprise in the neon display
- Star Destroyer in the neon display
- Ghost trap from Ghostbusters on top of the neon display
- Superman poster on the left
- Batman poster below the Superman poster
- Duff beer in the fridge
- Roomba with googly eyes stickers
- R2D2 figurine in the bookshelf
- Company of Heroes on the computer screen on the left
- Eagle-5 Winnebago from Spaceballs on the computer screen on the right
- The (fictional) Donkey Kong/Space Invaders crossover arcade machine
- Gandalf's pipe from LOTR in the bookshelf
- Sysadminotaur calendar on the wall, right side
Here are the 7 rather difficult Easter eggs:
- The large synthesizer is loosely based on a Moog Modular. The keyboard, however, is non-canon.
- The board game on the bottom right is loosely inspired by the Pandemic board game.
- The microphone looks like a blue yeti.
- The character directly below Totoro on the bookshelf is a generic extra inspired by Game of Thrones (John Snow's distant cousin Billy Bob Snow!)
- The video game on the large monitor is loosely based on League of Legends.
- The little planet on the bookshelf is simply some kind of moon. No hidden reference here: IT WAS A DECOY!
- There is a George Foreman grill at the top of the pile of appliances (this is hard to see, and if you got it you should take a bow).
Here are the 2 ridiculously difficult Easter eggs (you need to increase your screen’s brightness):
- There is an X-wing in the top right corner.
- The Planet Express ship from Futurama is in the bottom right corner, above the board game.
