Yes, that’s an AT-AT walking through a beautiful landscape painting. It’s a part of The Ancient Kaiju Project by German artist Oliver Wetter. He’s inserted all sorts of monsters into classic Hudson River School paintings as a way of improving his ability to replicate the styles. He’s done an incredible job, with the creatures looking like they were always a part of the art.

What if lovable cartoon characters like Ariel and Dora the Explorer transformed and became absolute badasses? Well, for one thing, it would be awesome. We’ve seen some of DeviantArt user Tohad’s “Badass” series before when he added some blood and gore to characters like Barbie, and he’s since continued the series to include new and once precious subjects. Though the Ariel-anglerfish monster pictured above is my favorite, I also love his takes on Dora and the Powerpuff Girls!

Check out more of the cute/creepy series after the break.

This Lego version of Mothra created by Olive Sean captures one of the most famous of Japanese monsters. She’s destroying New Kirk City despite the valiant efforts of the military shooting her with a tank-mounted laser beam. Mothra has trapped them all with her silken spray and doesn’t look at all bothered by their puny defenses. Although Mothra is a scratch-built piece, the buildings are Lego building sets that are perfectly incorporated into the overall scene.

You might think that action figures of the US Presidents would be boring and stuffy, but that’s only because you never imagined them as movie monsters. These 8″ action figures take seven presidents and do just that. They’ve even been clever monster names like Zombush, Baracula and Lincolnstein. Just think how cool these would look on display at Halloween.

Not only does it look cute, but it helps keep your iPad clean, too. His little floppy hands are actually microfiber screen cleaner pads.

It’s all fun and games until you put on a Ghillie suit, step into the middle of the road, and get struck and killed by a car. Randy Lee Tenley thought it would be fun to put on the suit, like the ones snipers use to camouflage themselves, and then stand in the middle of the road. In the dark. He was hoping to get someone to call in a Bigfoot sighting, but instead was struck by two cars and killed. Reports are that alcohol may have been involved. You think?

This is exactly what you need to make your living room complete. It’s a life-sized replica of Bigfoot built by a man named Clifford LaBrecque back in 1976. This 8-foot-tall creation has been sitting in his living room all these years, but now he’s decided to sell it at the bargain basement price of $80,000 on Ebay. So, you can decide between putting your kids through college or owning this beauty. Obviously, Bigfoot wins.

The latest installment in the Monsters, Inc franchise takes us back in time to when the monsters were in college. Now we’ve got four slightly different trailers for Monsters University which is due to hit theaters next year. The changing punchline in each one is pretty funny but, damn it, I’ve now got Spandau Ballet’s True stuck in my head!
