You don’t need magic to keep your cell phone free of scratches, but a Harry Potter themed case certainly wouldn’t hurt. Etsy seller The Sorcerer’s Phone crafts creative cases by hand with sealers and papers. It’s a minimalist take on the Boy Who Lived, and it can live with you for an affordable price. Turnaround time for the case is 30 days and it can me made for a wide range of phones including the new iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus.

always shoot first

If Peter Quill, Han Solo, and Malcolm Reynolds sat down at the cantina and had a chat, it seems reasonable that they would discuss when it’s okay to shoot first. This LEGO video from Brotherhood Workshop takes the characters from Guardians of the Galaxy, Star Wars, and Firefly and imagines how the conversation would go. Spoiler: it’s kinda fantastic.

Watch the mash-up LEGO video after the break.

tardis guitar 1

If you’re ready to make your music sound bigger on the inside, you need to order a Police Box cigar box guitar from R Brand Guitars. They designed this instrument to commemorate the 50th anniversary of Doctor Who, and the box guitar features the blue TARDIS police box and Gallifreyan designs on the neck. They’re made to order, and R Brand Guitars is only crafting a limited number of these beauties. They’re $150 each, and while they probably can’t go through time and space, they can produce lovely tunes.

death of batman's parents

Batman’s origin story is practically a tale as old as time. Nearly every on screen appearance of Batman is accompanied by a flashback showing the death of Bruce Wayne’s parents, Thomas and Martha Wayne. A mugger approaches them in Crime Alley after a night at the theater, death and vengeance follow. Vulture took it upon themselves to compile a supercut of the various takes on the Waynes’ death. No wonder Bruce became Batman.

Watch the supercut after the break.

Artist Eman Jeman, a.k.a. Clog Two, has illustrated a very cool series depicting Iron Man and War Machine in different armor than we’re used to. The “Iron Giants” drawings feature Tony Stark dressed in various styles of suits, including the samurai one pictured above. It’s detailed and beautiful, and I’d love to see a cosplayer bring it to life.

Gwen Stacy puts on the costume and becomes Spider-Woman in last week’s Edge of the Spider-Verse #2, but that’s not all. This Gwen is also a drummer in a rock band called The Mary Janes. Yes, it’s led by Mary Jane Watson. They play a song called, “Face It, Tiger,” and real life indie rockers Married with Sea Monsters loved the comic so much they recorded an actual version of the song. They rule.

Listen to the tune after the break.

Remember that beautiful Millennium Falcon fly-by that Bad Robot posted last week? It not only showed off a tiny glimpse of Episode VII, it had a glorious Batmobile easter egg. YouTuber Chris Lankford has recreated the scene with LEGO and Batman’s Tumbler is much easier to spot in this version of the video.

TARDIS Stroller 1

If you’re a geeky parent and want your kid to travel in style, a TARDIS stroller is definitely the way to go. Twitter user Vanja Vinter made this galactic set of Doctor Who-themed wheels, and it does look bigger on the inside and quite comfortable. Can I get one made in an adult size?

Norman Rockwell’s Saturday Evening Post illustrations are iconic and instantly recognizable. Many artists have taken the style and put different characters into the idyllic scenes, including Ruiz Burgos.
