aurora

Want to see something amazing? Take a moment and explore the Lego fantasy world of Aurora by Nannan Zhang and Legohaulic.

Based on Bastion, the build is a 7’x7′ display of “a floating world shattered into fragments, whose citizens are now rebuilding their lost home”, according to Nannan.

I don’t think I’ll ever not be amazed by this level of skill with Lego. It blows my mind.

Head after the break to see more pictures of this fantastic display.

DIY Totoro Baby Bouncer

totoro bouncer 1

When blogger Cation Designs started shopping for merchandise for her soon-to-be-born baby, she realized that baby stuff is both kind of generic and very expensive. She found a used Snugabunny bouncer for a great price that was suitable, but she didn’t care for the bunny and bird theme. She brainstormed and came up with a much cooler look for the baby accessory: Totoro! She covered the existing cushion with an adorable Totoro and turned the birds into soot sprites.

Check out more images – including a before picture – after the break.

mr. pointy plush

Wooden stakes are the best tool for getting rid of vampires, but maybe could you stop them with cuddles by giving them a plush stake? Indeed, this plush version of Mr. Pointy from Buffy the Vampire Slayer actually exists. The 12″ toy is definitely one of the weirder licensed items I’ve seen, but it works. Bonus: you could also pretend it’s a wand.

Mr. Pointy will be available to purchase in Q4.

See a couple more photos after the break.

This pumpkin carved by DeviantArtist ceemdee famously references the dysentery that killed everyone in the classic Oregon Trail game. It looks great in the light, but check it out in the dark. The light glows through and makes it look exactly like the game. Just don’t eat the pumpkin after Halloween or you’re likely to, you know, die of dysentery.

dead

Those of you fearing that The Walking Dead would end with Rick simply waking up from a coma to find it was all a bad dream can now rest easy. After being called out by Uproxx in a post titled, “Robert Kirkman Needs To Go On The Record Promising The Walking Dead Won’t End As Rick Grimes’ Coma Dream” the creator of the series granted their wish.

Robert Kirkman took to twitter to confirm that there will be no dream ending for the series. Rick is most definitely awake and the events of the series are really happening to him.

Of course, Kirkman couldn’t just leave it at that. He had to go and put a whole new potential ending idea into our heads. Find out what it is after the break….

doom

This fantastically detailed sculpture of Doom II‘s final level was created by artist Jason Hite. He made it from old circuit boards, bits of action figures, and all sorts of random stuff. Now it’s going up for sale for $6K. Jason talked about the design process on his blog, saying:

Over the years, I have collected circuit boards from computers and odd devices. The panel on the right of the demon’s head was sitting in a cardboard box in the back of my YMCA getting rained on, before I “liberated” it. The guns are from the Quake action figures by ReSaurus Toys that came out back in 1998. At least they are accosted with Doom. I would have loved to make a BFG, and still might do so, but I ran out of time. I’m actually kind of surprised that no one has made one by now. The Doom Guy figure and zombie behind the Cyberdemon are slightly augmented from HorrorClix figures…and the dozen bullets are dummy .30 ammo that is epoxied them tightly into the piece.

It will be on display in Santa Monica, California at the Copro National Gallery where you’ll also be able to buy it if you’ve got the cash.

bat

Ever wonder what a sequel to Batman & Robin would be like? No? Of course you didn’t. Odds are you wanted to forget that it ever existed. If that’s the case then we have some terrible and shocking news for you. According to Bleeding Cool, Joel Schumacher will to continue the saga in a 12-issue comic series drawn by Dustin Nguyen that’s based on the script for Batman Triumphant—the third and final installment of a Schumacher Batman trilogy that never happened.

According to the Batman Wiki, the Scarecrow would have been the main villain of the film with Harley Quinn playing the Joker’s daughter who is bent on revenge for her father’s death. The Joker himself would also return as a hallucination caused by Scarecrow’s fear toxin.

So, we’re going to get to see the crazy that would have been a fifth movie? I have to admit—as a series of comics, this could be kind of fun. Of course, nothing is set in stone until an official announcement is made.

On that note, you’ll want to check out the video of Schumacher apologizing for Batman & Robin after the break so that you can complete the healing process before the comics are released.
