These two new sixth-scale collectible figures from Hot Toys recreate Marty McFly and Dr. Emmett Brown from Back to The Future Part II perfectly. Just look at their clothes and accessories. It’s a blast from that past that takes us back to the—oh you know what I mean.

They had me at Marty’s hat and hover board and Doc’s amazing outfit and sunglasses.

Both figures are available for pre-order now with a release date estimated between Jul – Sep of 2017. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Blizzard has erected a 2-ton, 10-foot high, 14-foot wide bronze statue of Arthas Menethil in a park in Taichung, Taiwan as a tribute to the Taiwanese gaming community and in celebration of Blizzard Entertainment’s 25th anniversary.

It took 9 months for an entire team of artists and craftspeople to create this statue which is described as “The Lich King in his purest form”. It truly is an incredible work of art and a fitting tribute to the legions of gamers around the world who have spent so many hours trying to down him over the years. The video below is a tribute as well—to gamers, to Warcraft, and to the power of story and it’s ability to last over the decades. [click to continue…]

Considering it took me a minute to realize these weren’t real people, I’d say Hot Toys’ ability to bring a lifelike quality is eerily summed up in the picture above of their new Suicide Squad 1/6 scale figures of The Joker, Harley Quinn, and Deadshot.

Each figure comes with all of the accessories, articulation, and level of detail that we’ve come to expect from Hot Toys, whether it’s Deadshot’s weapons, The Joker’s tattoos, or Harley’s clothes, jewelry and signature bat.

While they won’t start shipping until June 2017 at the earliest, you can pre-order now and start building your own Suicide Squad. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Adult coloring books are one of the best things to come along in a while, as far as I’m concerned. Especially the geeky ones.

On that note, new coloring books for Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Star Trek: The Original Series and Star Trek: The Next Generation by Dark Horse Comics are on their way. The Star Trek coloring books come out November 8th and the Buffy coloring book will be out in January of 2017, but you can pre-order both now.

Boldly go and color Sunnydale! Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

pokemon trainer

New Zealand’s Tom Currie has become such a fan of Pokémon Go that he quit his bartending job to be a full-time Pokémon Trainer.

He’s not sponsored, so he’s doing all of this out of his own pocket, but you never know. Maybe we’ll see pro trainers if the craze keeps up.

For now, he’s caught (as of last count) 91 out of 151 possible Pokémon and he’s traveling and making lots of new friends. Check out more pics from his travels below. [click to continue…]

hamill

Mark Hamill has always been an awesome ambassador for Star Wars, but you know he had to be exhausted after three full days at Star Wars Celebration Europe. Still, he takes time with everyone who comes by for an autograph.

In this case, he got something in return. A custom-made Joker lightsaber made by Hampton’s Handcrafted LED Sabers. The saber was crowdsourced by fans who wanted to chip in and get Hamill something special.

He also gave the fans a taste of what they can expect from The Killing Joke movie during “An Hour with Mark Hamill” at Celebration.

It’s glorious. Check out the videos below. [click to continue…]

fairy garden doors

One of the things I like best about fairy gardens is that you can create them in any sized space. Whether you’re an apartment dweller like I am with a tiny balcony or you have sprawling acres, it all depends on your imagination and budget.

These fairy garden doors and tea-light holder by Etsy seller Hidden Worlds are perfect for transporting you into the land of the Fae.
