Misc. Nerdiness

jamie dance face

The Game Of Thrones panel revealed a lot of cool stuff, but the gag reel from season 4 is one of the best. From Jamie’s Dance Face to Tywin’s potty mouth, it’s two minutes of awesome.

I’m also very glad Pedro Pascal isn’t flammable.

Check it out after the break.

katrina and the kaiju

So there I was heading for the QMx booth and I see Katrina Law perched up on a chair, phone raised in a Sailor Moon pose. The search for signal continues.

To be totally honest, I didn’t realize it was her at first and I was just cracking up about this woman up on a chair being a geek in search of a signal. But even when I did realize who it was, all I saw was a really pretty, approachable, geek lady with a great smile and a great sense of self.

Plus, she’s willing to take on a kaiju and she let me get a picture of her up on that chair, which is after the break.

Everyone was pretty excited to hear rumors that Lucy Lawless would be joining the S.H.I.E.L.D cast. During the Marvel panel at SDCC last night, her casting was confirmed along with the name of her character: Isabelle Hartly.

So far as we can tell, Isabelle Hartly hasn’t appeared elsewhere in the Marvel universe. However, she is a longtime S.H.I.E.L.D veteran that was described thusly:

“She’s tough. She may have a knife that’s always by her side,” said executive producer Maurissa Tancharoen.

Other new faces on the show this season will include Nick Blood as mercenary Lance Hunter and Reed Diamond who will play Daniel Whitehall, a Hydra baddie known as Kraken in Secret Warriors.

sdcc assassins

We all know how Ubisoft feels about females in Assassin’s Creed, but we think Kacy Catanzaro would make a great assassin.

As you probably know by now, Kacy Catanzaro is the first woman to finish the finals course on American Ninja Warrior. She also took on the Assassin’s Creed experience at SDCC and proved once again what an athlete, all around badass she is. Watch the video after the break…

As an Arrow fan, I may have screamed a little when I saw this new image of Roy Harper trading his hoodie for this outfit. Colton Haynes wears it well, I have to say.

Yep, happy Arrow fangirl right here.

According to EW, we’ll see the Arsenal suit in the first episode of season three which airs Oct. 8 on The CW.

serenity full

Preview night at SDCC was insane. Busy busy busy and a sea of humanity. But I did find a very shiny girl within that insanity over at the QMx booth.

Meet the newest QMx Serenity.

She’s 1:124 scale and based on the filming miniature with a length of 26.5 inches, width of 17 inches, and height 7.5 inches.

She also has an aluminum and steel internal armature with over 100 led lights and she’s handcrafted by the artisans at QMx.

Oh and, her engines turn in case of a need for a Crazy Ivan.

No word yet on release date or price, but she’s lovely to look at.

Head after the break to see more.

Hot Wheels meets the Empire with the new Darth Vader car. We teased it yesterday but I got the chance to see this thing of beauty up close at SDCC and it was all I could do to not to try and steal it.

I took pictures, which are after the break. There’s also a video you’ll enjoy.

Recently, Game of Thrones creator George R.R. Martin did a crowdfunding campaign with Prizeo for the Wild Spirit Wolf Sanctuary, offering contributors a death scene in his upcoming book A Wind in Winter if they gave $20,000 dollars. Only two “martyr” slots were available and both were purchased, but a 13-year-old fan in the UK named Jack was still compelled to write to the author to talk about his goals of becoming a wolf conservationist and his dream of suffering a terrible death in the fictional land of Westeros.

A photo of the letter and Martin’s response follow after the break.
