Every time I see one of the new DC Bishoujo, I immediately send a link to my friend Edgar because I know how much he loves them and because I really like the mix between cute and sexy. This Zatanna is totally in line with that.

She’s estimated for arrival in September, but my past experience working at EE tells me that you’ll want to pre-order if you want her, because these statues tend to sell out quickly.

whedon slayer theory edit

The Whedonverse is a wonderful place and more than one fan has put forth a theory that many Joss Whedon shows are connected in one form or another.

This cross universe Slayer theory, however, may be my favorite so far. It’s also the most comprehensive.

Check it out after the break and prepare to have your mind blown.

What happens when you get Marvel loving, RC plane piloting nerds together? An RC Helicarrier that you can land RC planes on of course.

While it’s not always pretty, it does actually work and you can tell that the guys from FliteTest had a blast.

10 capricorn

The signs of the Zodiac have been represented differently throughout the ages, but I’m pretty sure these are the most monstrous takes that we’ve seen.

Artist Damien Hellabrand definitely thought outside the box and came up something pretty amazing. In fact, I would love to see these as action figures (or a Guillermo Del Toro movie). It reminds me of the McFarlane Monsters series in a very good way.

As a Libra, I think he caught my essence perfectly.

Check them out after the break.

Pixar’s newest movie Inside Out already looks like will have that mix of adorable, comedic, and serious that we’ve come to appreciate from Pixar.

It’s the adorable that really comes into play with these new Funko POP!s of Riley’s inner feelings; Anger, Joy, Despair, Sadness, and Fear.

I want all of them.

You can get a better look at them along with the trailer for the movie after the break.

When you think of The Voice, you probably think of the version shown in the US, but The Voice is an international phenomenon and there’s some pretty amazing talent out there.

This is a young Armenian girl by the name of Victoria Hovhannisyan appearing on Russia’s version of The Voice.

Her song choice? Plava Laguna’s song from The Fifth Element, including The Diva Dance.

She nails it. Just nails it. It’s so much fun to watch and the female judge is obviously a fan of the movie, so it’s really great to watch her reactions.

Check it out after the break.
