tfa comic book

Marvel has released a preview of the upcoming Star Wars: The Force Awakens comic adaptation, and this 6-issue limited series by writer Chuck Wendig (Star Wars: Aftermath) and artist Luke Ross (Hercules) sure is pretty.

The preview gives us a look at a couple pages, the cover by Esad Ribic and different variant covers by Esad Ribic, Joe Quesada, Phil Noto, and John Cassaday. The Quesada variant already has a special place in my heart.

I’m definitely going to put this on my pull list. What about you? Check out more pics after the break…

I’ve never liked the expression “They’ve got too much time on their hands.” It’s often said in a dismissive, snide way about people who have chosen to use their free time to, I don’t know, catalog every Doctor Who story in chronological order, or build extensive detailed replicas of movie props that only appear on screen for a few seconds. It is, at its core, a term that is used to shoot down creative endeavors.

The fact is, we all have the exact same amount of time during our day. We just prioritize different things. Some people collate spreadsheets and walk their dog. Others build customized LEGO versions of each and every Iron Man suit Tony Stark has ever worn.

That’s what LEGO enthusiast Minh Pham has done – he’s built a LEGO laboratory space worthy of Mr. Stark and populated it with insanely detailed variations on the Iron Man suit as they’ve appeared throughout the films, comic books and various TV outings—all custom-made from LEGO minifigs.

It’s an impressive feat, and a superlative use of Pham’s time. Check out more photos below.

Captain America: Civil War is blazing a trail in the box office right now, eliciting almost the polar opposite response to Warner Bros.’ Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice – it’s beloved by critics but has its audience well and truly divided.

The big question, obviously, is how much money does the US Army owe Steve Rogers?

I know it costs $1000 dollars, but I have to figure out how to buy the life-size Deadpool foam statue that NECA is cooking up. Plus, shipping is free—so that’s something.

Apparently, the statue will be foam rubber and latex that’s been hand painted to ensure realistic detailing from the mask to the boots.

Sure, I might need a dolly to take it places (because it’s 210 lbs), but think of all the fun we could have!

Personally, I’d put him in the shower to freak people out. But I’m evil like that.

HawkeyeCivilWar

Fans are still reeling from the return of Marvel and Netflix’s Daredevil for its second heart-stopping season, and with the excitement at it’s height during this weekend’s Silicon Valley Comic-Con, fans clearly had Netflix on the brain. During Avengers star Jeremy Renner’s spotlight Q&A panel, one fan asked about the possibility of seeing Hawkeye or his fellow Avengers hitting the small screen via Netflix. To fans’ delight, Renner seemed completely open to the idea, and a fan of the Netflix format as a whole:

I think that’s actually a really great model, if there’s ever a way to explore the character, maybe it’s in that world. These are things that are really not in my control, but I’d be open to it. I’ve really enjoyed getting to explore the character more recently. The Netflix model is where all the character drama goes to now, you’re doing a superhero movie or a Netflix or HBO kind of model. So I’d be open to it. Not up to me, though.

The actor also went on to express interest in a Black Widow and Hawkeye movie, saying that he would do it “in a second. I’d love to do that.” The two characters have an interesting and long-running friendship, and Scarlett Johansson’s Black Widow is a character who still has a long past to explore.

Get a load of this! A group of LEGO enthusiasts in Taiwan assembled this phenomenal recreation of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier as seen in the Avengers films.

Measuring 140cm x 80cm and using approximately 15,000 bricks, it’s over twice the size and uses five times as many bricks as LEGO’s own officially-licensed Helicarrier set from 2015.

Formosa LEGO club members ZiO Chao and his friends Dada, Kimura, Kuan-Wei, Stephanie, Tiger and Will spent a month and a half putting this beast together, using only stills of the Helicarrier from 2012’s The Avengers as reference.

Artist Derek Laufman recently popped up on my radar and now I want every single thing he’s made. I’m partial to his Star Wars art prints (he has a gorgeous Star Wars: The Force Awakens print and the most adorable Chibi Rey, Kylo, Poe & Finn), but his style just speaks to me overall.

His prices for prints are also pretty reasonable. I feel like I discovered a diamond. See more examples below.

Remember when you were a kid and you didn’t get something you wanted, you’d say something like “When I grow up, I’ll buy whatever I want!”. Well, here’s your chance.

Marvel has partnered with ThinkGeek to deliver an Avengers comforter and sheet set in Twin, Full, Queen, or King sizes.

It’s about as tasteful as superhero sheets get.
