Stormtroopers, with their tendency to be terrible shots, aren’t all that intimidating. But this Maschinen Krieger-themed Stormtrooper, courtesy of model-maker Kunho Noh, looks tough enough to take down the entire Rebellion.

knightmage-afro-samurai-topCosplayer Michael Wilson aka Knightmage has put together an Afro Samurai cosplay that makes me think we need a lot more Afro Samurai cosplay in our lives.

I love the hair and I’m kind of fascinated with the headband. I wish I could walk around looking like the wind was constantly blowing around me.

Being the awesome folks that they are, Geek & Sundry have been doing a series of D&D character sheets for some of your favorite fandoms.

This time around, they’ve dipped into the ‘Verse and made character sheets for Firefly characters Malcolm Reynolds, Inara, Kaylee, and Jayne. Mal’s a rogue, natch. Kaylee is a sorcerer which I find fitting. You can see what Jayne and Inara are below.

1-27Social psychologist Erika D. Price has devised a system of ranking breakfast cereals, although she apparently doesn’t stand by it.

We don’t know what criteria was used to achieve the final results—but it doesn’t matter. The results are subjective. In fact, the list will likely receive instant rejection when people discover that Raisin Bran was placed in the mid tier and Cap’n Crunch didn’t event make it into the mix.

Nearly 30 years ago a movie hit the big screen and vividly defined everything glorious about the ’80s in less than two hours. From Jim Henson creatures to the timeless glamour of the late David Bowie, Labyrinth went above and beyond to transport viewers to a different world.

It was also a box office bomb.

However, Labyrinth has become a cult classic in the years since. So, to commemorate the 30th anniversary, Fathom Events is bringing the film back to select theaters on September 11th and 14th ahead of the special edition Blu-ray that arrives on September 20th.

So here is your chance to see David Bowie back on the big screen in this Jim Henson masterpiece. Tickets and info on participating theaters will be available on the Fathom Events website.

lego star destroyer

In 2014, LEGO put out a Star Wars Star Destroyer kit that was 19″ long and contained 1359 individual pieces. LEGO enthusiast Doomhandle has made his own Star Destroyer that’s just a wee bit bigger at 56″ long.

Doomhandle’s Star Destroyer even has internal compartments – the command bridge opens up to reveal LEGO minifigs sitting in stations, meeting rooms and even a Sith meditation chamber. The whole ship is also wired for LED lights, but Doomhandle hasn’t gotten as far as setting those up yet.

It’s an impressive bit of kit. Check out the gallery after the jump.

Harry Potter fan Meredith McCardle had a brilliant idea for decorating a wall in her home.

Did I mention that she’s an author? Because that fact begins to put this project into perspective.

Using a projector she borrowed from an elementary school, McCardle traced the first page of Harry Potter on her wall then painted each letter with a high quality paint so she wouldn’t have to do a second coat.

Simple. Genius. I love everything about this idea.
