If you’re hoping to bring a little extra light to your bedroom, consider picking up one of these Transformers 3D Deco Lights.

These LED lights can be mounted directly to a surface, and they can also be mounted on top of a “crack” sticker that’s included–it makes it look like an Autobot or Decepticon is crashing through your wall! You can preorder these lights from Big Bad Toy Store, and they have several different variants, including the Autobot Logo, Bumblebee, Grimlock (pictured above) and Optimus Prime.

Check out some other lights after the break…

The latest Pop! vinyl figures feature scary characters, but they look so cute you’ll just want to hug them. There’s a Cthulhu that will be available in January and The Crow which will be available in November. Both can be pre-ordered now.

Diagon Alley Nerd Approved 1

The streets of Universal Orlando seemed empty. It was a Thursday morning and the park had only been open for half an hour. I could take photos with no other people in them. A cheerful Despicable Me parade rolled by and only a few spectators gathered to see the adorable Minions. As I walked past Springfield from The Simpsons I realized why the park’s attendees seemed few and far between: we were all headed straight for Diagon Alley.

Universal Orlando recently expanded the popular Wizarding World of Harry Potter to include the colorful and rich Diagon Alley. The area opened in July and includes a plethora of shops and dining options as well as two new attractions: Harry Potter and the Escape from Gringotts and the Hogwarts Express. The latter takes you between Universal Orlando and Universal Islands of Adventure (a two park ticket is required) and dumps you right into the heart of Hogsmeade near the Hogwarts Castle. Magical? Yes. Worth the trip? Absolutely.

If you’ve visited the Hogsmeade portion of Wizarding World, you know what kind of detailed theming Universal is capable of providing. I’m pleased to say they went above and beyond to make Diagon Alley even better and more immersive.

Read all about my experience, the food (butterbeer ice cream!), and the new rides after the break. And yes, I’ve got plenty of photos for you to enjoy.

To heck with international copyright laws! Chinese toy companies Decool and Bozhi have made two different sets of League of Legends Lego-style minifigs that include 14 figures altogether.

They’re neither true Lego minifigs nor a licensed product, but they still look great and would likely get along just fine with the genuine minifigs in your collection.

tardis bed 2

I have no idea who actually built this bed, but I do know I want one and I want it now.

Seriously, the BBC needs to license this TARDIS bed and sell it at Ikea or something. Because I need it in my life.

Head after the break to see more pictures.

This is both disturbing and completely hysterical. A guy going by the name of MrKreepyKoala is totally trolling players in Grand Theft Auto Online. He’s been wandering around for a few months now, stalking people and killing them in a super creepy way (while also being invincible in passive mode). The reactions of the other players is absolutely priceless.

See the NSFW videos after the break.

netflix

As you know, Netflix has to periodically change out the movies and TV shows they offer and it’s that time of the month where we say goodbye to some movies and TV shows and hello to others.

As usual, there’s a little good and a little bad in each category.

On the departing list, there’a a lot of Barney going away but we’re also losing Serenity, Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid, and Apocalypse Now. However, Snowpiercer, The Rocketeer, and the original Total Recall are being added, so that’s cool.

If you want to watch any of the stuff that’s being removed, today is your last chance.

You can see the full list of changes after the break.

Hot Toys released images of gorgeous Chewbacca and Han Solo figures as the first in its Star Wars line and now it’s going to the Imperial side with this Stormtrooper. The figure will be 30 cm tall and have 7 different hands to hold either a Blastech E-11 rifle or SE-14r Blast Pistol.

There’s also a two-pack with one Stormtrooper that’s shorter. Yes, he’s a little short for a Stormtrooper at 28 cm tall. The two-pack comes with a Mouse Droid and a DLT-19 Heavy Blaster Rifle.

The figure is available for pre-order now with an expected ship date of August 2015.
