Ranger2

We’ve featured Isaiah Stephens before for his incredible artwork. This time it’s for striking new versions of the Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. These updated Rangers come complete with an entirely new sci-fi style. They’re sexy and badass and will make you wish they’d do a movie with this futuristic version of the Rangers.

20fb_firefly_ornament_set

Dear fellow Browncoats: it is possible to cover a small tree with ornaments inspired by the Firefly universe. ThinkGeek has a four pack of ornaments that feature the Blue Sun logo, the Independent flag, an Engineered by Firefly plaque, and Serenity herself. They also have a tiny Jayne hat. You can compliment these ornaments by making some felt ornaments of the Fruity Oaty Bar girls and painting ornaments with the pattern from Kaylee’s umbrella.

The Lego Detective’s Office set, due out in January (for $159.99), has a fantastic level of detail for the set’s intrepid gumshoe. This is the tenth modular building that Lego has released and it comes with six minifigures along with hidden trap doors and secret stash barrels. The city block includes the second-floor detective’s office, a barbershop and a pool hall that will provide for hours of creative play for kids or adults.

See more pictures and a video after the break that explains more about the secret candy smuggling operation going on right under the detective’s nonexistent nose.

No one is safe from the coming zombie apocalypse, including our favorite Christmas characters. These ornaments give a preview of what’s to come. Santa Claus, an elf, a zombie, and a reindeer have all been splattered with blood and gore in this set of resin ornaments. Each measures 3″ tall except for the 3.4″ reindeer.

tng blooper reel

Season seven of Star Trek: The Next Generation is coming to Blu-ray on December 2nd, and that means extras! Uproxx has shared a clip from the gag reel to promote the release, and it’s hilarious. Jonathan Frakes chases people, and Patrick Stewart curses. What else do you need to know?

Take 45 seconds and watch the bloopers after the break.

ttter

This letter is real, not some photoshopped wish. It was uploaded by redditor Fryd_ after he found it while playing with his niece and nephew. He told BuzzFeed:

I came across the pamphlet whilst playing Lego with my niece & nephew at their Grandma’s house and it struck me as particularly modern message for something written 40 years ago. I thought the toy-makers of today could learn a thing or two!

It’s a beautiful message and rings just as true today as the day that it was tucked inside a brand new box of Lego over 40 years ago.

firefly zoe wash

This 2 second animation featuring Zoe and Wash was created by artist Stephen Byrne and is part of a larger project called The Animated Adventures Of Firefly. In addition to the clip, he also released a time lapse video of just what went into making this two seconds happen.

Both of those things would be fascinating and a joy for any Firefly or animation fan on their own. But if you’re like me, this two seconds likely gets you right in the feels.

Head after the break to see the making of video.

Wampa

Star Wars paper snowflake designs by Anthony Herrera have become a tradition. I know winter is nearly here when I see that Herrera has posted a new batch of snowflakes inspired by the galaxy far, far away. This year’s round up of detailed paper snowflakes includes Han Solo, Greedo, Captain Rex, Jabba the Hutt, the space slug, a wampa, and TIE fighters. Grab some paper, scissors, and set aside a few hours this weekend to make it snow with Star Wars.

This epic Alien Facehugger leash is the nerdiest way to walk your dog. The leash is made from foam so it’s light enough for even the tiniest of dogs (it was designed to fit a small-medium sized dog actually). It will make your pup the most popular pup on the block.
