try acting

Burrrrrrn!

You may need to wait in line for a while and pay a little more for his autograph, but it appears that Mark Hamill will make it worth your while.

Pictures have surfaced of some trading cards he’s signed over the years and it’s pretty clear that he enjoys poking fun at Star Wars.

See more after the break.

Why use an ordinary oil diffuser when you can use these very cool Star Wars Aroma Ornaments? They’re made of ceramic and designed by Kotobukiya, so they look good and they smell good.

Each one comes with a 5ml bottle of lavender oil (the scent will surround you, penetrate you), but you can also use your own scents. Designs include the Death Star, the Millennium Falcon, and R2-D2.

ghostbusters top

Need someone to stop by and help make sick patients feel better? Who you gonna call? Ghostbusters! (and maybe Chris Pratt).

Yep, Melissa McCarthy, Kate McKinnon, Leslie Jones, and Kristen Wiig showed up at the Floating Hospital for Children at Tufts Medical Center in full gear and met some of the patients there. It’s nice to see so many smiles.

renee and lucy

While I love that Lucy Lawless is back on TV in both Salem and the upcoming Ash Vs. Evil Dead, there’s no doubt that many fans hold a special place in their heart for a certain warrior princess. Lawless herself has said that she’d love to reboot Xena, but noted that it was still in the “wishful thinking stage”.

Still, word is that NBC is trying to make it happen.

Regardless, we have a little Xena reunion for you right here. Lucy and Renee O’Connor are still friends and Lawless recently posted a picture of them together on Instagram. If that wasn’t enough, she posted a second pic of her with Claire Stansfield aka Alti the evil shamaness.

Check them out after the break.

Chris Pratt continues to be that guy you just can’t help but love. He recently asked Facebook to help him out by creating a cover image for his page. A luxurious dinner at Applebees awaits the winner.

The Internet accepted the challenge and the results have been fantastic.

Head after the break to see Pratt’s original post and some of the best replies thus far. You’ll be happy you did.

Square Enix Play Arts Black Widow edit

Normally, I really like the Square Enix Play Arts line, but I’m kind of on the fence about the new Variant Black Widow. I mean, I like the detail of the figure and the armor. I like the hair. I even like the pose. But the boobs. I don’t mind the size, but they look like…well, this:

16e

I don’t know. Maybe I’m being nitpicky, but as a rather large chested gal, I can tell you that those things defy physics.

Funko’s quest to take over your toy shelf continues with a new line of Pop!s for Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I’m especially fond of Tim the Enchanter’s mini rabbit, sans visible big pointy teeth, and the Black Knight with all of his limbs (I suspect a variant without them is a foregone conclusion).

Brace yourselves, Sherlock fans, the adorbz have come for the Sherlock cast. They have Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock spot on, right down to the tousled hair and the scarf! Martin Freeman’s Watson is stoically stoic, Moriarty’s devilish, Irene’s cool and calculating, and Mycroft is perfectly Mycroft.

everything is awesome

I love this parrot.

Princess Yellow Feather is a yellow-naped amazon parrot and a singer. Watch as she sings “Everything Is Awesome” from The Lego Movie in this performance from the Birds On Safari exotic bird store in Stuart, Florida.

They’ve been making beautiful and accurate Star Trek costume replicas for years, and now Anovos is turning their attention to prop replicas from Deep Space Nine, First Contact, and Nemesis.

The newly announced replicas range from weapons to communicators, but each is made with the same Anovos commitment to detail and quality. No word on pricing yet, but we do have some pictures and descriptions thanks to StarTrek.com. To my eye, they sure are pretty.
