sauron

The team at Man at Arms: Reforged is taking us all back to Middle-Earth as they build Sauron’s Mace. He takes out legions of men in one swing with this thing in the movies, and the version these guys create looks almost, but not quite as deadly.

See it come together in the video after the break.

dc pens header

I don’t use pens often anymore, but when I do, they have to be just right. I can’t imagine it getting more right than these sexy DC Comics-themed pens by Montegrappa. The fancy superhero and supervillain designs come in ballpoint, rollerball, and fountain varieties. The barrels have bright patterns and colors, and the caps feature mini sculptures of Superman, Green Lantern, Batman, Wonder Woman, Catwoman, Riddler, Penguin, and the Joker. They are not inexpensive by any definition of the word, but they look like they’re of the highest quality.

See individual shots of the beautiful writing tools after the break.

boxing-game-kick

I’m not sure if the guy in this video is a ninja, but the flying kick he launches at this arcade game is extremely impressive. While the martial arts action is cool, you don’t get to see the kick in normal speed, you don’t get to see the guy’s final score, and the quality of the video is abysmal. Bummer, I know. But I’m going to guess and say that he did get a high score… and that he probably broke the machine too.

Watch all the spin kicking action after the break…

frozen funko 3

No one is ever going to let Frozen go. Ever. The animated film is still raking in merchandise dollars, and because Funko is smart, they’re releasing another series of brand new Frozen Pop! figures. You’ll be able to get young Elsa and Anna, coronation Elsa and Anna, and a summer version of Olaf (don’t worry, it’s not a big puddle). They’re all as cute as you’d imagine.

Besides the normal size figures, Funko’s also releasing a series of Mystery Minis. I want to buy the entire box of them!

Pre-order now to receive the new Frozen figures in February or March.

Check out the rest of the new figures after the break.

zelda triforce leather journal

It seems to me that all books should have a cover like this. It really makes you feel like you’re going on an adventure.

This leather Zelda Triforce book/journal cover is hand tooled and painted by artist Ian Finch-Field of SkinzNHydez. I think it’s beautifully crafted and I’d figure would only get better with age.

The new animated series Game in 60 Seconds features different games being reviewed by Internet heroes like Nic Cage (impersonated of course) in just 60 seconds. His rating system has neither stars nor tomatoes but flaming Ghost Rider heads. This particular episode also involves him shooting laser beams from his eyes while making “pew-pew!” sounds. It’s all the things that make Nic Cage so incredibly awesome.

See the video after the break and warning, NSFW language.

2014 Maihack Supergirl Batgirl Comic

Illustrator Mike Maihack has made the holidays more festive for a few years now by giving us adorable Batgirl and Supergirl Christmas comics. Supergirl is more enthusiastic about Christmas than Batgirl, and she tries to drag the reluctant superhero into her joyful celebration every year.

This year Supergirl confuses Christmas with Halloween, but a surprise appearance from Batman validates her mix-up. It’s adorable.

LEGO justice league

Hold on to your Lasso of Truth because LEGO is actually producing a set with Wonder Woman’s invisible jet. Ahhh! Unlike this hilarious parody, the jet is real and is constructed from clear LEGO bricks. It included as part of a Justice League set called “Gorilla Grodd Goes Bananas” and will be available in 2015. According to the schedule of LEGO releases slated for next year, we can expect it to arrive in April along with four other Justice League sets.

Yep, I’m sold.
