lego torture

Nothing ever conceived of in the bowels of a medieval dungeon could possibly compare to this. However, there is one body type that is built to survive this kind of torture. Check out the entire video below (slightly NSFW). [click to continue…]

jkmu_snorlax_bean_bag

We’ve seen Snorlax bean bag chairs in the past, but they’ve all been unofficial and of lesser quality. All of that is about to change. This version from ThinkGeek is glorious and officially-licensed.

There’s nowhere better to relax after a long day of work, school, or just being out and about than on your Pokémon Snorlax Bean Bag Chair. At almost 4 feet head to toe and over 2 feet across, this (s)lumbering Pokémon is perfect for your dorm room, your den, your bedroom, or right inside the door where you can collapse on it when you get in. Just remember not to block the road. It does not ship with a flute.

These two new sixth-scale collectible figures from Hot Toys recreate Marty McFly and Dr. Emmett Brown from Back to The Future Part II perfectly. Just look at their clothes and accessories. It’s a blast from that past that takes us back to the—oh you know what I mean.

They had me at Marty’s hat and hover board and Doc’s amazing outfit and sunglasses.

Both figures are available for pre-order now with a release date estimated between Jul – Sep of 2017. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Blizzard has erected a 2-ton, 10-foot high, 14-foot wide bronze statue of Arthas Menethil in a park in Taichung, Taiwan as a tribute to the Taiwanese gaming community and in celebration of Blizzard Entertainment’s 25th anniversary.

It took 9 months for an entire team of artists and craftspeople to create this statue which is described as “The Lich King in his purest form”. It truly is an incredible work of art and a fitting tribute to the legions of gamers around the world who have spent so many hours trying to down him over the years. The video below is a tribute as well—to gamers, to Warcraft, and to the power of story and it’s ability to last over the decades. [click to continue…]

We’ve seen dinosaur lamps before, but these are a little more realistic than previous versions. I mean, I don’t see any feathers or whatever the hell the current theory is, but I’m pretty sure they didn’t look like this. Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]

rick and morty transcript

The transcript you are about to hear is real. Their names are Rick and Morty, and they aren’t innocent—especially Rick. Rick is guilty as hell.

Yes, you may recognize this extremely bizarre and vulgar court transcript from a real case in Georgia as it recently went viral. The team behind Rick and Morty threw together a recreation for Comic-Con because, well, the universe clearly could not go on without it.

For the love of God don’t watch this at work. Watch it when you’re alone and can properly handle it. It’s extremely NSFW, and the tears that will be streaming down your face aren’t going to help you get that promotion. [click to continue…]
