raptor bike 1

Velociraptors are swift creatures, and if you’re going to transform a bicycle into a dinosaur, they seem like a good choice. Art student Markus Moestue made the modified bike for a school project and rode his creation from Stavanger to Kristiansand in Norway. It took him over six months to piece the dinosaur bicycle together from three bikes. The actual raptor was made from polystyrene that he cut with a kitchen knife. Clever boy.

doctor who animated

What if Doctor Who was animated for an episode? I think it would be a fun gimmick. Artist Stephen Byrne imagined a whole sequence of opening titles for such an occasion and posted “The Animated Adventures of Doctor Who” on YouTube. I love the animation style and also how much fun the series looks. This needs to be on Saturday morning television.

Watch the titles after the break.

gamora main

While you may have noticed there’s not a ton of Gamora in the Guardian’s Of The Galaxy merchandise out there right now, the Hot Toys’ Facebook page previewed a new Gamora figure that will literally (okay, maybe not literally, but close) blow you away.

From the Hot Toys Facebook page:

“The movie-accurate Gamora collectible figure is specially crafted based on the image of Zoe Saldana as Gamora in the movie, featuring the newly developed head sculpt, highly detailed costume, weapons and accessories.”

That head sculpt includes black and purplish-red real fabric hair implantation and is specially hand-painted. The figure features 28 points of articulation and comes with interchangeable palms, to allow for different fighting styles.

She really is a thing of beauty and is available for pre-order now with an expected ship date of April 2015. Head after the break to see more pictures.

color

Forget those silly coloring books with happy pictures of bunnies and flowers and horses. This 24-page coloring book will help them understand Kierkegaard and is full of thought-provoking quotes and pictures of people with horse heads. Um, on second thought, don’t give this one to the kids. That might not be such a good idea.

jurassic park wedding 1

Filed under the category of Jeff Goldblum and Jurassic Park being awesome: the actor and his fiancée recently attended the wedding of friends in Toronto, and the groom requested the above shot from photographer Adam Biesenthal after the ceremony. Everyone was willing, and the group nailed the ‘running scared from the T. Rex’ shot in one take.

The Legend of Zelda version of Monopoly was announced back in April and now there are images of how the finished game will look. These pictures are of the GameStop exclusive, but you will be able to get it elsewhere minus a couple of bonuses including an Ocarina game token, six Power Cards, and a poster map.

You can make you way around the board as a Hylian Shield, Triforce, Boomerang, Hookshot or Bow no matter where you buy the game. Expect this in stores on September 15th.
