Yes, that’s an honest to goodness statue of Godzilla being erected in the middle of a beautiful park in Tokyo. It’s set to be officially unveiled later this week, but these shots give a good look at it right now. The size of the thing is impressive, especially when you see it from above with people there for scale. Check out his tail popping out from the lawn in the back.

These incredible 3D images show a less cartoon-like Futurama and it’s nothing short of breathtaking. It’s the work of artist Alexey Zakharov who created a 3D version of the skyline from the opening sequence as well as a 3D version of the Planet Express ship using 3Dsmax, Nuke, Photoshop and After Effects. These are so good, you’ll wish they were sneak peeks of a Futurama movie.

We’ve seen some great Epic Rap Battles of History with the likes of Sir Isaac Newton vs Bill Nye and Rick Grimes vs Walter White but this time, there are ninjas.

Indeed, the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles take on their artist namesakes as they go up against Leonardo da Vinci, Donatello, Michelangelo, and Raphael. This might be the best one yet.

This might be about the coolest custom board game table ever. It’s for the game Risk and it’s basically an entire table that’s been carved and painted into the game board. The continents and areas are all mapped out and there’s even a compass. The only problem is that you’ll never be able to pack this one up and bring it to a friend’s house on game night.

And someone please tell that guy to use a coaster for his beer.

Jurassic World is due to hit theaters on June 12, 2015 with the promise of showing us a dinosaur theme park that’s functioning, rather than just acting as an all-you-can-eat buffet stocked with humans. At least, that’s what we will see until the humans get bored and things take a turn for the worse.

These images, tweeted by @jurassicpk15 supposedly show us one of the brochures from the movie theme park. It details the attractions, animals, and cool stuff like feeding times and even info on a park golf course. It seems as though Jimmy Fallon might make a cameo as well.

It all looks like a fun vacation, but you just know it’s not going to go well for the humans.

Jim Ross’s wrestling commentary has made him an icon in the industry. His over-the-top commentary has now been added to video game footage and it’ll make you wish he was sitting in your living room every time you pick up the controller. We’ve already posted one video with Ross “commenting” on games like Mario Kart and Legend of Zelda and now he’s been added Resident Evil, FIFA Soccer, and more that will have you in hysterics.

8-bit characters of old are quaint and even cute when viewed through our modern eyes, but what if we could turn those 8-bit characters into something more realistic? Scott Johnson took a go of it and translated their 8-bit shapes into something more organic. You’d think they’d remain cute, but they actually walk the line between ugly and horrifying.

This beautiful violin version of Gustavo Santaolalla’s music for The Last of Us features Taylor Davis. The tune is simply haunting and the video to accompany it makes it look like Ellie has stepped right out of the game in Taylor’s skin.

Here’s what happens when you summon Joss Whedon on twitter. Yes, you can do that, as ThoughtOtter discovered when she summoned Joss during a random twitter conversation.

At first, ThoughtOtter asked for money, but then quickly checked herself and asked for more Buffy the Vampire Slayer. Joss could have given the expected answer with excuses involving time and money and other commitments, but instead he immediately delivered more Buffy. Looks like the makings of a whole new season of everyone’s favorite slayer if you ask us.

See Joss’s response after the break.

mancave-640x327

Every guy needs a place to call his own and that place becomes his man cave. Usually this is just a small section of a guy’s house, but when you’re Mythbuster Adam Savage, then it’s a whole workshop that’s big enough to map on Google Street View. Video games, Firefly, Star Wars, Alien facehuggers, and is that a Picasso? Seriously, you could spend hours exploring this place and still not see it all.

Savage is eager to share all his collected nerdery with the masses so he even created a video for his Youtube series Tested. The video is 17 minutes long and I’m guessing he only covers 1/17th of what’s actually in the place.
