See The Crow version after the break.

To heck with international copyright laws! Chinese toy companies Decool and Bozhi have made two different sets of League of Legends Lego-style minifigs that include 14 figures altogether.

They’re neither true Lego minifigs nor a licensed product, but they still look great and would likely get along just fine with the genuine minifigs in your collection.

This is both disturbing and completely hysterical. A guy going by the name of MrKreepyKoala is totally trolling players in Grand Theft Auto Online. He’s been wandering around for a few months now, stalking people and killing them in a super creepy way (while also being invincible in passive mode). The reactions of the other players is absolutely priceless.

Hot Toys released images of gorgeous Chewbacca and Han Solo figures as the first in its Star Wars line and now it’s going to the Imperial side with this Stormtrooper. The figure will be 30 cm tall and have 7 different hands to hold either a Blastech E-11 rifle or SE-14r Blast Pistol.

There’s also a two-pack with one Stormtrooper that’s shorter. Yes, he’s a little short for a Stormtrooper at 28 cm tall. The two-pack comes with a Mouse Droid and a DLT-19 Heavy Blaster Rifle.

The figure is available for pre-order now with an expected ship date of August 2015.

When Sci-Fi changed its name to SyFy, the channel also made the decision to move away from the genre content that helped it make it so popular in the first place. Now they’re admitting that they’ve fallen behind the curve. In a recent interview in Entertainment Weekly, SyFy president David Howe said:

“We saw an explosion of sci-fi/fantasy content across every cable and broadcast network out there. Perceptions of the genre have shifted dramatically. What that speaks to is an opportunity to re-own the genre and be at the forefront of high-end buzzy, provocative storytelling — and the epiphany of that was Battlestar.”

Their attempt to re-own the genre includes 5 new shows and miniseries that go back to the channel’s original roots. We’ll be getting Twelve Monkeys, Ascension, Childhood’s End, The Expanse, and Hunters all of which SyFy hopes will bring back viewers.

This pumpkin carved by DeviantArtist ceemdee famously references the dysentery that killed everyone in the classic Oregon Trail game. It looks great in the light, but check it out in the dark. The light glows through and makes it look exactly like the game. Just don’t eat the pumpkin after Halloween or you’re likely to, you know, die of dysentery.

Those of you fearing that The Walking Dead would end with Rick simply waking up from a coma to find it was all a bad dream can now rest easy. After being called out by Uproxx in a post titled, “Robert Kirkman Needs To Go On The Record Promising The Walking Dead Won’t End As Rick Grimes’ Coma Dream” the creator of the series granted their wish.

Robert Kirkman took to twitter to confirm that there will be no dream ending for the series. Rick is most definitely awake and the events of the series are really happening to him.

Of course, Kirkman couldn’t just leave it at that. He had to go and put a whole new potential ending idea into our heads. Find out what it is after the break….

doom

This fantastically detailed sculpture of Doom II‘s final level was created by artist Jason Hite. He made it from old circuit boards, bits of action figures, and all sorts of random stuff. Now it’s going up for sale for $6K. Jason talked about the design process on his blog, saying:

Over the years, I have collected circuit boards from computers and odd devices. The panel on the right of the demon’s head was sitting in a cardboard box in the back of my YMCA getting rained on, before I “liberated” it. The guns are from the Quake action figures by ReSaurus Toys that came out back in 1998. At least they are accosted with Doom. I would have loved to make a BFG, and still might do so, but I ran out of time. I’m actually kind of surprised that no one has made one by now. The Doom Guy figure and zombie behind the Cyberdemon are slightly augmented from HorrorClix figures…and the dozen bullets are dummy .30 ammo that is epoxied them tightly into the piece.

It will be on display in Santa Monica, California at the Copro National Gallery where you’ll also be able to buy it if you’ve got the cash.

Ever wonder what a sequel to Batman & Robin would be like? No? Of course you didn’t. Odds are you wanted to forget that it ever existed. If that’s the case then we have some terrible and shocking news for you. According to Bleeding Cool, Joel Schumacher will to continue the saga in a 12-issue comic series drawn by Dustin Nguyen that’s based on the script for Batman Triumphant—the third and final installment of a Schumacher Batman trilogy that never happened.

According to the Batman Wiki, the Scarecrow would have been the main villain of the film with Harley Quinn playing the Joker’s daughter who is bent on revenge for her father’s death. The Joker himself would also return as a hallucination caused by Scarecrow’s fear toxin.

So, we’re going to get to see the crazy that would have been a fifth movie? I have to admit—as a series of comics, this could be kind of fun. Of course, nothing is set in stone until an official announcement is made.

On that note, you’ll want to check out the video of Schumacher apologizing for Batman & Robin after the break so that you can complete the healing process before the comics are released.

Since most of us did not receive a letter telling us that we had been accepted to Hogwarts, the closest we will probably ever come is a Harry Potter-themed hotel like this one. The 163-year old Georgian House Hotel in London has turned several of its rooms into Hogwarts-style student rooms that you can stay in for about $400 a night. There’s also a package for $585 that includes a walking tour of the movie’s London landmarks and a ticket to the “Making of Harry Potter” tour and Warner Bros. studios.
