got season 5 trailer

Naturally, A fan filmed the new season 5 trailer during the “Game of Thrones” IMAX event and leaked it online.

There’s a lot going on and pretty much everything makes me shake my fist at the screen and demand time fly by because April 12th is too far away!

Head after the break to check out the trailer before it gets pulled. If HBO releases and official version soon, we’ll update with it. UPDATE: They did. The official video has been added after the break…

Rose

David Tennant, aka the 10th Doctor, won the Special Recognition award at the National Television Awards last week. Basically, this award goes to someone who’s just plain awesome. Tennant definitely fits the bill.

The award is great, but his reaction is even better. He has no idea he’s getting the award so when his father and colleagues like Catherine Tate and Billie Piper start singing his praises in a video montage, Tennant is visibly overcome. You might get a little choked up yourself.

Scissor

The Man at Arms team has a long list of weapons that they’ve created, the latest being Ryuko Matoi’s Scissor Blade from Kill la Kill. The blade looks amazing, but the process behind this one is unique. They actually melted down a bunch of real scissors and turned them into a single blade.

See it come together in the video after the break.

We love both The Legend of Zelda and Final Fantasy. But what would it look like if you combined the two games? The Tumblr site Shattered-Earth gave us a glimpse into the answer with a series of logos for Zelda done in Yoshitaka Amano’s classic Final Fantasy style. I don’t know about you all, but I think it’s rather well done.

This life-sized model of Ravage from Transformers was built by Jamie Young of FoamTastic Props. He made the model using those anti-fatigue mats that you find anywhere where people stand for long periods of time. Each piece was carefully cut and glued to get this amazing result.
