The successful Kickstarter launched last summer by ESC-Toy and Devolver Digital produced a very cool Hotline Miami action figure. Fans asked for a Biker and they delivered. The project will easily surpass its goal, so you expect delivery of your figure in June 2016 should you decide to pledge.

See the project video and more pictures after the break.

This infographic created by Empire Flippers details over 120 fictional businesses found throughout the Marvel universe.

Other than the slightly annoying issue of having super villains constantly trying to destroy humanity, how cool would it be live in the Marvel Universe? Not only would superpowers be real, but there would still be awesome places to shop, eat, and have some fun.

Marvel has done an incredible job creating a vast, realistic and relatable world for us. And the minutely detailed commercial segment is no different. If you’re a comic book buff, you’ve probably heard of many of these companies and establishments, but do you know where they are located?

Business are broken down by state and type of business so you can easily figure out where to go in your neighborhood to find your favorite heroes.

There’s also a making-of video that shows how they pulled off the trick.

There’s more Pop! Vinyl cuteness from Funko in the form of BioShock Infinite and Batman: Arkham Knight.

New Batman: Arkham Knight Pop!s are available for Scarecrow, Harley Quinn, Batman, and Arkham Knight. BioShock Infinite has Booker DeWitt (both with and without the Skyhook), Elizabeth, Big Daddy, and Little Sister.

I’ll admit, the Little Sister freaks me out.

Why no one thought of this when they were coming up with the soundtrack for Mad Max: Fury Road is beyond us. This heavy metal version of the classic Yakety Sax paired to clips from the movie is perfect.

anime-recommendations-header

New to anime and not sure where to even start? This insane flowchart, made by imgur user lukeatlook, recommends over 100 shows based on your personal preferences.

In his disclaimer, he admits leaving out wildly popular shows like Sailor Moon, Dragon Ball Z, Bleach and Pokemon. When in doubt, the popular shows are probably a good place to start.

While I don’t agree with all of his recommendations, the organization of this chart completely satisfies my OCD.

Check out the full chart after the break.
