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…

And there’s the ending of the series. Daenerys Targaryen becomes some sort of God and her enemies suddenly and mysteriously die horrible deaths.

ARROW

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.

martin

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 conversationist 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.

It seems fitting that SDCC started on Batman Day.

What better way to celebrate 75 years of Batman than with this LEGO Super Heroes: DC Comics San Diego Comic-Con Exclusive Batman Classic TV Series Batmobile?

You can buy it this week at Comic-Con for $39.99. No word on availability beyond the con.

See an additional picture after the break.

Superhero Apes

Damn dirty apes are all over our movie theaters thanks to Dawn of the Planet of the Apes. But simian culture has had a long, proud and insane tradition in superhero comics. I’m not just talking about the many times that human superheroes have been temporarily transformed into apes. I’m talking about apes who are themselves heroes and villains.

Our list begins after the break!
