Japan Is A Magical Place

If this is how Japan does road construction, I can only imagine how crazy and awesome the Olympics are going to be in 2020.

Marvel’s Captain America: Civil War comes out on DVD/Blu-Ray September 13th and you know what that means.

It’s gag reel time.

Okay, sure, there’s the actual movie and other special features, but who cares about that? The gag reel is the best part of any bonus extras.

This sneak preview of the gag reel has dancing, swearing, flubs, and even Chris Evans holding his nose in the cutest way possible. Enjoy. [click to continue…]

tim burton sale

To celebrate Tim Burton’s 58th birthday, ThinkGeek is running a big sale with up to 60% on over 50 “curious” items. Items that include everything from digital wizard hoodies to Flux Capacitor USB car chargers. Oddly, there aren’t any Burton-themed items on this list. No NBX teapots or Edward Scissorhands office supplies. Nothing. They do have an electronic cat tail though, which has a Halloween-y vibe I guess.

Hey, it’s a sale on nerdy stuff—I’ll take it. Make sure to grab your favorites before they sell out.

Pokemon pokeballs

Target wants to be your #1 Pokéstop for all things Pokémon Go-related and they’re not being shy about it. You know those big red balls (they’re actually security bollards) outside of their stores? They’re turning them into giant Poké Balls. It’s happening outside of more than 400 Target locations across the US.

They’re also inviting Pokémon fans to come by and take a picture with the new Poké Balls. Sure, why not. Good luck trying to steal one though—they weigh over 1200 pounds. Let’s see if some idiot tries.

star wars album covers

Digital artist Steven Lear is a big fan of music and movies, both of which feature prominently in his mashups. You can tell he’s especially a fan of Star Wars, which he’s reworked as album covers with spectacular results. I’m especially pleased by his Bjork covers keeping it in the family.

Never doubt the internet’s ability to come up with a theory that you’d never consider until someone considers it, at which point, it’s like it was there all the time.

In Game Of Thrones, it was R+L=J. This time, it’s Stranger Things and the idea that Parks & Recreation‘s Jean-Ralphio Saperstein is the son of Steve Harrington from Stranger Things.

If you’re a fan of the show, you’re probably aware of the theory at this point. In fact, it’s gained so much traction that Jean-Ralphio himself (Ben Schwartz) shared his thoughts on the subject. As you’ll see in the video below, he’s pretty sure J-R ran the Upside Down. Just roll with it. [click to continue…]

Whether you’re planning a Harry Potter party, or getting ready for Halloween, this animated spellbook is a perfect prop for the occasion.

The book has all sorts of spooky details and comes with lights, sound effects, and a moving magnetic quill that follows a hidden, circular track.

All you need is a couple AA batteries and a place to put it. I’d love to see someone use this in a Harry Potter cosplay. See it in action in the video below. [click to continue…]

barb funko

Yes! After seeing the awesome Eleven design from Funko earlier this week I was hoping that Barb would be the next reveal in the Stranger Things Pop lineup. I was not disappointed—mostly. The figure needs those sweet mom jeans… [click to continue…]

All Hail Deadpool Caesar!

Personally, I’m not a big fan of collectible busts. This Deadpool Caesar bust is an exception.

In fact, I would like to develop an entire art gallery based on it. It would be filled with disturbing children’s drawings and stuff like this. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]
