Wampa

Star Wars paper snowflake designs by Anthony Herrera have become a tradition. I know winter is nearly here when I see that Herrera has posted a new batch of snowflakes inspired by the galaxy far, far away. This year’s round up of detailed paper snowflakes includes Han Solo, Greedo, Captain Rex, Jabba the Hutt, the space slug, a wampa, and TIE fighters. Grab some paper, scissors, and set aside a few hours this weekend to make it snow with Star Wars.

See the other designs after the break.

facehugger leash

This epic Alien Facehugger leash is the nerdiest way to walk your dog. The leash is made from foam so it’s light enough for even the tiniest of dogs (it was designed to fit a small-medium sized dog actually). It will make your pup the most popular pup on the block.

owl

This precious little Western Screech Owl named Zeus is completely blind. He flew into the porch wall of a house in Southern California, bonking his head pretty good. He was taken to the vet where it was discovered that he was blind. They also couldn’t help but notice that he has amazing eyes that look like they’re filled with tiny galaxies.

The effect is due to vitreous which is a jelly-like substance in eyes that clumps into strands or little lumps. They’ve resulted in stunning configurations in Zeus’s eyes, which also don’t have an iris or lens.

Since he can’t be released into the wild, he’s now a permanent resident at Wildlife Center for Learning where he sits perched on a stand by founder Paul Hahn’s desk.

groot swing

One of the things that makes director James Gunn so much fun to follow on social media is just how much he enjoys other people’s expressions of love for Guardians Of The Galaxy.

For example, this picture of a Groot swing that some fans made for an upcoming reality show called Super Fans, Super Builds. He posted it to his Tumblr to show it off and let people know how much he loved it.

I want one of those swings. Now.

One of the most memorable scenes in Raiders of the Lost Ark is when Gestapo agent Toht gets what he deserves. We see his face melt into a disgusting ooze of flesh and blood as he screams in agony. It’s awesome. Now you can relive that moment with this candle. Needless to say, it’s perfect for setting a romantic mood.

funko neo

Okay, seriously, I give up. I just need to accept that Funko is on a mission to take over the world and prepare to tithe a percentage of my paycheck to them on a monthly basis. Because, seriously, they just keep making things that cause me to make grabby hands!

Just when I was getting over the Big Trouble in Little China POP!s and the Warcraft POP!s, they announce a new line of POP!s based on The Matrix.

Teeny Trinity is the new best thing ever.

The only upside here is that they’re not expected until March of 2015, but you can pre-order now.

Head after the break to check out the rest of the figures.

labyrinth-2

Ok, so remember when we posted the news about Iam8Bit’s art show, Sequel? For those who may have forgotten, the event is currently showcasing movie posters for sequels that most of us would love to see.

The event is taking place in Los Angeles, and you can check out the art in person until November 23. But the good news is that prints can now be purchased online for cash-monies!

martial arts

The 10th World Wushu Championships took place way back in 2009 and featured two women performing an incredible demonstration of the martial arts sport known as wushu or duilian. The video has just surfaced, and you’ll see that they move at breakneck speeds – so fast that their body parts go by in a blur. Epic is the only word for it. The choreography looks like something right out of The Matrix films.

Watch the incredible demo after the break.

3D castlevania board

When we last heard from Redditor XsimonbelmontX, he had spent months constructing a custom Fallout Monopoly game for his wife. He received so much positive feedback that he was inspired to create a board game take on Castlevania, and it’s just as amazing as his last custom build.

He included 11 unique characters, and each character has an upgrade deck of 10-15 abilities. Those abilities are randomly unlocked each time the character levels up. The story of the game follows Simon’s Quest, and it’s obvious he put a lot of work into figuring out the design and gameplay.

Read more about the game and see a gallery of photos after the break.
