This is the second day in a row I was surprised by something Skyrim-related. The first was the inclusion of the game in the the trailer for Nintendo’s upcoming Switch console (though, weirdly, Bethesda was quick to comment that the title hasn’t actually been confirmed for the system). The second occurred today when I headed on over to Merchoid to check out their new releases. Lo and behold, Skyrim Monopoly is coming in March 2017. The description reads: [click to continue…]


Welp, this Pikachu Mario and Luigi plush combo really, really works. So of course they’re a limited edition item going on sale October 29th at Pokémon Centers in Japan.

But that’s not all of the awesome merch you won’t be able to get your hands on (without paying far, far to much for them on eBay). Torture yourself with more official Pokémon Company / Nintendo crossover items below. [click to continue…]


What do you get when you cross a drone with an old Halloween decoration? Brilliance, that’s what.

Inspired by his daughter’s love of Harry Potter, 50 year-old Michael Irvine created this remote-control Dementor with the aid of some fishing wire, allowing him to terrorize his neighbors from the comfort of his own porch.

The Internet was quick to confirm his genius. When his nephew tweeted photos of the thing they went viral. Also, his daughter posted some videos of the drone in action that you can check out below. [click to continue…]


A New Wave Tarot deck exists and I absolutely love it. Amanda Lee Stillwell of Last Craft Designs has gone full ’80s here and has replaced the usual Cups, Wands, Disks, and Swords with tea cups, eyeliners, LP records (yay vinyl!), and microphones.

The Major Arcana cards, however, are the true stars here.

The Major Arcana is made up of New Wave idols like Siouxsie Sioux as the High Priestess, Grace Jones as Strength, Morrisey and Robert Smith as Judgement, plus cards for Nick Cave, David Bowie, Kate Bush, Marc Almond, and more. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]


When it comes to The Walking Dead, the number one authority on the planet is, of course, comedy legend John Cleese. So who better to recap seasons 1-6 in anticipation of the Season 7 premiere?

Seriously though, John Cleese could recap the dictionary and I would be riveted. He described Rick as “essentially Clint Eastwood but a bit more… sensitive”. Yeah, do yourself a favor and watch the video below. [click to continue…]


The time has come. Your first look at Hugh Jackman’s final performance as Wolverine begins right now. Check out the first trailer for Logan below. I have to say that it’s definitely odd to see him as an old and broken man. It just has a different feel than other superhero movies. [click to continue…]


I have to admit, this video of Geraldine the TIE Pupper had me in tears. The editing is absolutely perfect. Watch it below. [click to continue…]


Olly Moss has made a name for himself with his artwork, most notably his poster designs. If you are unfamiliar, you must go check them out immediately, then come back, because you’ll want to see his take on the Harry Potter series. It’s part of an official collaboration with Pottermore that included an eBook cover redesign last year.

Moss has knocked out seven cracking posters in his famous minimalist style, one for each book (for those wondering, he uses the original British title for the first book, Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone). Check out the full series below. [click to continue…]


To prep us for the GotG Vol 2 trailer #1, James Gunn is giving us our first look at the film in the teaser trailer (trailer 0.5) below. It’s got baby Groot in a tiny jaaaaaacket… [click to continue…]


Pyke, the Greyjoy castle on the Iron Islands of Westeros, is definitely on the dreary side, but LEGO artist Anu Pehrson‘s take on Pyke is remarkably beautiful. The creation even won an award at BrickCon earlier this month.

Needless to say, if I had to choose between visiting GRRM’s or Anu’s version of Pyke, I definitely go with the latter. Check out an additional pic below. [click to continue…]
