Firefly game

Get ready to roll dice Browncoats, because a Firefly Collector’s Edition of Yahtzee is coming your way. It’s a bizarre combination that I didn’t see coming, but it is pretty shiny. The set comes with a cool Serenity ship cup (I want to buy the game just for that) and custom dice. Pre-order now to play Yahtzee with Serenity in September.

white tree of gondor

You don’t have to travel to New Zealand to add a little Middle-earth to your life. You can do what Lord of the Rings fan Mehmet did and install a geeky stain glass door in your house. The glass features the White Tree of Gondor in all its glory, and I wouldn’t mind having one just like it in my house.

Doctor Who Many Doctors

On August 23, Doctor Who fans will witness the season 8 premiere and the first full debut adventure of Peter Capaldi as the Twelfth Doctor. First impressions can be tricky, especially when audiences just spent a few years getting used to the previous incarnation of the heroic Time Lord. Before we see how well Capaldi’s first story delivers, why not take a look at the debuts of the classic era Doctors? Some were hits right from the start, while some had shaky beginnings but became beloved incarnations later on.

The list begins after the break!

In the MOC Madness competition, all the Star Wars things are going steampunk. The Steam Wars competition is broken into five rounds, and it began in July. The first challenge was for participants to choose a canon starfighter and reimagine it as a minifig scale steampunk fighter. Now they’re on round three, and it’s all about building a steampunk AT-AT.

The above picture features markus19840420′s submission. He only had seven days to build the Walker, and I’m impressed by the number of details he incorporated in such a short period of time. I’d totally buy something like this.

See more photos of the build after the break.

A new era begins on August 23 with Peter Capaldi taking up the role of the heroic Time Lord now that Matt Smith, the Eleventh Doctor, has left. People are eagerly discussing what can be expected in the life of the Twelfth Doctor and what villains may return. But there are possibilities beyond the obvious choices such as Daleks. There as several baddies from the classic Doctor Who series that have yet to appear in the modern era and would be great to see.

Look past the break for a list of just some of the classic era villain we’d love to see return.

Brett Lotriet Best knows his boyfriend loves Star Trek and Captain Jean-Luc Picard so he tried to track down Sir Patrick Stewart to help with a proposal video. When he couldn’t find the actor, he turned to Stewart’s best friend Sir Ian McKellen. Best asked McKellen to help woo Khalid Shawwa into marrying him, and according to McKellen’s Facebook page, it seems like Khalid said yes. I have nothing but warm and fuzzy feelings right now.

Watch the proposal video after the break.
