The models are free to download and include the likes of Owlbear, Ettin, and Tiamat in alphabetical order so you can easily find the ones you want to print. Zavala has even painted a few of the figures which might inspire you to break out those old brushes and paints.

Yes, this really is Stephen Hawking singing Monty Python’s Galaxy Song. It will be released as a 7″ vinyl that will be available only at Record Store Day events on Saturday, April 18th.

The video features some clips from Hawking’s appearance during the Monty Python Live reunion last year—like when Hawking attacked physicist Brian Cox for questioning the tune’s accuracy. There’s also a crazy site set up to promote the song where you can download the tune and play a version of Asteroids where Hawking fires missiles at the Monty Python cast and Brian Cox.

See the Hawking version and the original after the break.

It’s getting to the point where I may need to rob a bank before I ever get to the convention center for Star Wars Celebration, because there’s so much cool stuff to be had.

After revealing the first wave of goodies (including the Space Slug In A Box), they’ve just dropped news on even more items, including a Sock Wookiee.

So, um, if I need an alibi for my whereabouts…

Head after the break to see all of the loot.

Eventually George R.R. Martin will finish The Winds Of Winter, which is when these bookmarks will be just perfect. Each is made from bronze tone metal, paper, paint, and glass and features a different house sigil or a map of Westeros. The bookmarks measure 8cm with an 18mm picture at the top.

Well, Marvel fans, it looks like there may be a new show for you to keep track of. Entertainment Weekly is reporting that a spinoff is being developed by SHIELD exec producer Jeffrey Bell (Angel, The X-Files) and SHIELD writer Paul Zbyszewski (Lost, Hawaii Five-0).

There aren’t any details on what the spinoff will be, but word is that there’s no plan to spin it off from a particular episode (Think Flash out of Arrow). However, story elements from the upcoming season of SHIELD will lay the groundwork for the new series (so it seems that season three is pretty much guaranteed).

My guess is that it’s gearing towards Inhumans, but you never know.

On a side note, we still don’t know what’s happening with Agent Carter. I hope this doesn’t mean that Carter is done and the spinoff will serve as a replacement. That would be a real bummer.
