The new LEGO building set will feature mini-figures of Kristen Wiig as Erin Gilbert, Melissa McCarthy as Abby Yates, Kate McKinnon as Jillian Holtzmann, Leslie Jones as Patty Tolan, Chris Hemsworth as Kevin, and a red Daemon. Plus, you’ll be able to build the ECTO-1 car and the ECTO-2 bike.

It’s estimated for a July release, with a MSRP of $59.99.

We’ve included a set breakdown and images after the break. Just be warned that there are spoilers, so proceed with caution.

gundam star wars figures

Stormtroopers! Iconic. Gundam! Also iconic. What happens when you smash ’em together? Until this week, we had no idea. Fortunately, Korean Gundam enthusiast Kunho Noh has stepped in to answer this pressing question by modifying Star Wars figures with badass Gundam armor.

Check out additional pics and videos of his creations below.

doctor who wars

This trailer proves that inserting any franchise into The Force Awakens trailer template makes it the must-see movie of the year.

YouTuber VG934 writes:

Being the huge Doctor Who and Star Wars fan that I am, how could I resist the chance to bring these two massive franchises together? Well sort of bring them together, let’s call it Who Wars.

Some may call me late to the party but I must remind you that a Wizard is never late, nor is he early – he arrives precisely when he means to. Alas, I’m no Wizard but the same principle applies.

I think you’re right on time, VG934. Now go make me a full length version.

Check out the trailer below.

pandemiccthulhu-00

Geeks like two things: Bacon, and Cthulhu. While science has yet to find a way to combine these two great tastes, geekdom has wasted zero time in combining them, individually, with other things.

Adding to a pile of Cthulhu-themed stuff that’s already threatening to topple over and level your neighborhood is Z-Man Games’ Pandemic: Reign of Cthulhu. It’s a Lovecraftian variant of the popular Pandemic tabletop board game. Players take the role of a group of investigators looking to close a bunch of portals through which indescribable horrors might emerge.

We don’t have full details of how this new version of Pandemic will play, but Ungeek reports that there’ll be some kind of sanity mechanic added to the gameplay (because why wouldn’t there be?). Images have also revealed three of the seven investigator characters, which will include a Magician, Hunter and a Reporter. Three of the twelve Old Ones cards have also been revealed and include Shuddle M’Ell, Azathoth, and Cthulhu.

Z-Man Games is slated to reveal more details soon, along with a debut at GenCon this summer. Check out an additional pic below.

We got our first look at the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Barbie Wonder Woman last July, and now the entire series is available for order.

In addition to Wonder Woman, Mattel is also releasing…uh…SuperKen and BatKen?

You can get a case of three or buy each doll separately. I’m thinking the Wonder Woman is going to sell out pretty fast.

chloe bruce

Daisy Ridley may have done some of her own stunts in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but Chloe Bruce was there when serious skills were needed.

Let’s just say she kicks ass with a staff.

She’s also doubled for Zoe Saldana in Guardians of the Galaxy and Jaimie Alexander in Thor: The Dark World. Plus, she’s a World Kickboxing Champion.

Check out the video below to see her in action.

cathelmet-prevRussian company Nitrinos Motostudio has been making cat-themed motorcycle helmets since 2011, and have developed four distinct styles available in a number of colors ranging from single-color to full “aerography” design with cat patterns and faces printed on them.

The cat ears aren’t just cool to look at, either – they’re functional, providing ventilation for your warm, sweaty head.

nesent

Over a period of two weeks, Imgur user tylerfulltilt hand-built this spectacular NES-themed entertainment center using some plywood, some clever paintwork, and this lowboard from Overstock which was heavily modified to look like the NES console itself.

We’re properly impressed with tylerfulltilt’s work, though I really want that TV to be bigger and lower. Check out the full gallery detailing the build process after the jump.
