renee and lucy

While I love that Lucy Lawless is back on TV in both Salem and the upcoming Ash Vs. Evil Dead, there’s no doubt that many fans hold a special place in their heart for a certain warrior princess. Lawless herself has said that she’d love to reboot Xena, but noted that it was still in the “wishful thinking stage”.

Still, word is that NBC is trying to make it happen.

Regardless, we have a little Xena reunion for you right here. Lucy and Renee O’Connor are still friends and Lawless recently posted a picture of them together on Instagram. If that wasn’t enough, she posted a second pic of her with Claire Stansfield aka Alti the evil shamaness.

Check them out after the break.

Head after the break to see Pratt’s original post and some of the best replies thus far. You’ll be happy you did.

Square Enix Play Arts Black Widow edit

Normally, I really like the Square Enix Play Arts line, but I’m kind of on the fence about the new Variant Black Widow. I mean, I like the detail of the figure and the armor. I like the hair. I even like the pose. But the boobs. I don’t mind the size, but they look like…well, this:


I don’t know. Maybe I’m being nitpicky, but as a rather large chested gal, I can tell you that those things defy physics.

Take a look after the break.

This super adorable crocheted Wall-e is so detailed, Etsy creator Anya Zoe even gave his eyes little white dots of reflection. In a few stitches, she has captured the silent character’s giant personality.

Wall-E really stands out, but with over 100 characters in her store, she’s covered fandoms from gaming to comics and everything in between.

Funko’s quest to take over your toy shelf continues with a new line of Pop!s for Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I’m especially fond of Tim the Enchanter’s mini rabbit, sans visible big pointy teeth, and the Black Knight with all of his limbs (I suspect a variant without them is a foregone conclusion).

See them all after the break.

The video also showcases the animation progression breakdown and a cameo from a special guest at the very end.

Watch Harley’s voice come to life after the break.
