replica

Last weekend’s episode of Doctor Who showed us the TARDIS in “Siege Mode”—a last resort means of defense. It basically turned the TARDIS into a little Gallifreyan cube, and now you can own a replica of its latest incarnation. This comes from Rubbertoe Replicas who makes all sort of officially licensed Doctor Who props. The beautiful little cube measures 7.5 cm square and comes packed in a little black box to keep it safe.

This wonderful Lego diorama based on The Goonies was on display at BrickCon 2014 and was created by members of the Virtual Lego Users Group (VLUG). This type of project is constructed in sections, with one member of the group organizing it all and the others each creating a section that they bring to the event to make the finished product. Members who worked on this build include Tyler Halliwell, Davey Sterling, Stacy Sterling, Dennis Price, Betsy Sandberg, Heath Flor, Lee Jones,Chris Phipson, Hans Dendauw, and matt rowntRee.

It’s impressive if you don’t know the film, but loyal fans will love all the little details they’ve included like Mikey’s and Data’s houses, One-Eyed Willie’s ship, and even some booby traps.

deadpool variant

The new Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. comic was unveiled yesterday and Clark Gregg showed off both the main cover (which has a monkey) and this Deadpool variant with the comment that “Even Deadpool does some carving.”

If only the Deadpool film rights weren’t owned by Fox!

Still, it’s a killer variant and the main cover is pretty cool too. You can check it out after the break.

i've fallen

Watching people fall down without receiving serious injuries is funny stuff. It’s as timeless as fart jokes. It turns out the action is just as amusing when it happens to CGI people. Visual effects artist Dave Fothergill recently tested the crowd dynamics function with Miarmy for Maya, and it shows people running into a rotating object – they all fall and none of them can get up. It’s way funnier than it should be.

Watch the silliness after the break.

Friendship is magic. Friendship is also very popular apparently.

Variety reports that Hasbro is moving forward with a My Little Pony movie for a 2017 release. The movie will be produced through Allspark Pictures, and Hasbro will finance it in house. They have Joe Ballarini on board as the writer and Meghan McCarthy as co-executive producer. McCarthy works on the current animated show and Equestria Girls.

The news doesn’t state whether the film is based on the Friendship is Magic incarnation of the story, but it’s likely given the success of the animated series.

Lots of neighborhoods have Halloween decorating contests to see who can come up with the most impressive display. This one, with a giant pirate shipping crashing through the house, wins them all. It’s the work of brothers Ricky and Tony Rodriguez who transformed their Mom’s house in Lorain, Ohio over the course of two weeks. The whole thing is great, but the way they made it look like the boat actually broke all the boards on the house is really cool. I’d love to see what these guys could think up for a Christmas display.
