Mondo seems to be poised to take over the nerd world. It’s not enough that they already make amazing art and pop culture inspired clothing, nope — Mondo is making toys and they’re revealing them at SDCC.
They’ll be launching figures and collectibles for The Iron Giant, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Alfred Hitchcock which you can see in person at San Diego Comic-Con in Mondo’s booth (#835). Pricing and release date information will be revealed in the coming months.
Check out more pics and read the full press release after the break.
Pardon me while I hyperventilate, but news has broken that the Marvel Universe is gaining a warrior princess. Yep, TV Guide is reporting that Lucy Lawless will be joining Marvel’s Agents of SHIELD but there are no details yet on how many episodes she will appear in or who she’ll be playing.
It’s so amazing to know that she’ll be part of the MCU because that could lead to some really awesome things down the road.
I hope she gets to beat people up and fling a weapon at someone. Maybe have a really cool battlecry.
Not that I’m basing my ideas on anyone. Nooooo.

Han may not like the idea of being frozen in carbonite and used as a toilet seat cover in your bathroom, but he’s frozen in carbonite, so it’s not like he can say much.
This toilet seat is made by a company called Derby Covers and, apparently, all of their toilet seats are custom painted and airbrushed. That’s got to look interesting on a resume!
They cover all sorts of different fandoms, so I’m guessing that if Han’s tortured face isn’t your thing, you’ll find something you like.

Geek fans love their mash ups and crossovers and I’m pretty sure we’ve seen a Thor/Disney princess mash up along the way, but it’s always magical when these kinds of things come true. In this case, Twitterer Daft Brian pointed out that Thor is now technically a Disney Princess thanks to the recent reveal from Marvel of a female Thor.
See the tweet after the break…
UPDATE: This appears to be a Photoshop, but it’s still funny as hell.
