A Hobbit hole looks like a wonderful place to live, albeit a bit “cozy”. With that in mind, West Stow Pods has launched a Kickstarter to bring what they’re calling a Poddit Hole to life. The rental home will be as close as possible to a real Hobbit hole. They’ve even asked for help from the Tolkien Society to get it right.

The home will include two double bedrooms, kitchen, bathroom, and living room with log burner. If the project is fully funded, then backers will be among the first to stay there overnight when it’s estimated to be ready this October.

George Coe, the actor who voiced Archer’s butler, Woodhouse, died on July 18th at the age of 86. He was one of the original Saturday Night Live cast members back in 1975 and appeared in numerous film, television, and theater productions. FX released a video tribute to the actor that includes some of the best Woodhouse moments and an ending that may have you wiping away a tear.

This fan-made tech demo uses Unreal Engine 4 to put you in an X-Wing, a speeder bike on Endor, and a ship on Hoth. It was created by HammerheadVR, but Lucasfilm cried foul so they were forced to remove it from Vimeo. However, it is currently available on YouTube with the audio muted thanks to a copyright claim.

The audio issue may have had something to do with pulling down the original video, or it could be related to the fact that Lucasfilm is working on their own VR version of Star Wars that’s set to debut later this year. Either way, it gives us a pretty good idea of what to expect.

Saturday, September 26th marks the debut of the new Guardians of the Galaxy animated series on Disney XD and we finally have an idea of what to expect. According to ComingSoon:

“Marvel’s Guardians of the Galaxy” follows the newly-formed team who finds a strange artifact keyed only to the DNA of Peter Quill. Upon opening it, Quill unleashes a treasure map leading to a powerful weapon known as the Cosmic Seed which is capable of giving birth to the next universe. It’s up to the Guardians to find, protect and ultimately destroy the Cosmic Seed in order to keep it out of the hands of those who would abuse its power, from galactic big boss Thanos, to the conniving brothers the Collector and the Grandmaster, to a resurrected Ronan, to the ultimate trickster, Loki, in order to save the universe.

Will Friedle (“Boy Meets World”) as the brash adventurer Peter Quill/Star-Lord, Trevor Devall (“Johnny Test”) as fan-favorite Rocket Raccoon, Vanessa Marshall (“Star Wars Rebels”) as the enigmatic, expert fighter Gamora, David Sobolov (“Transformers: Prime”) as the rough-edged warrior Drax the Destroyer, Kevin Michael Richardson (“The Cleveland Show”) as tree-like humanoid Groot and James Arnold Taylor (“Star Wars: The Clone Wars”) as leader of the space pirates Yondu and the telepathic dog, Cosmo

We previously featured a teaser of the 1/6th scale Millennium Falcon from Hot Toys and now we’ve got a closer look to share. The insane 18′ long and 12′ model will be featured at Ani-Com and Games Hong Kong 2015 as a part of their Star Wars display—and that’s probably where the story ends. Odds are this won’t be sold to the public, which is the recently unveiled cockpit comes in. Still, you might want to prepare to take a second mortgage on your house just in case.

Baymax from Big Hero 6 is inflatable, so he kinda makes sense as a bed. He’s about 7.5-feet from head to toe and is custom made when you place your order. He can be spread out flat on the ground or you can use those great big arms to give yourself a hug when you need a little cheering up.

If you’re a movie lover, this video will make you cringe. World Wide Interweb has collected some of the worst special effects ever including gems from Deep Blue Sea, The Mummy Returns, RoboCop, and even Star Wars for the CGI Jabba that never should have seen the light of day.

But it gets worse. Way worse.
