The Golden Girls

A version of Clue based on The Golden Girls is on the way, and it amuses me to no end. It isn’t a joke though—this is serious, official, business. USAopoly announced the news, and the game is already available to pre-order. The “crime” that you have to solve really gets me: [click to continue…]

Funko knows right where to get me when it comes to their newest NYCC exclusives. Directly in the nostalgia feels.

When Funko released the ReAction Dark Crystal Landstrider set at SDCC, I really hoped we’d get a Kira at some point. Lo and behold, the ReAction: The Dark Crystal – Garthim Box Set. They also did ReAction figures for The Golden Girls. Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]

Probably not, but this is so great.

Everyone’s favorite sassy senior citizens are back in action thanks to this LEGO super fan! Sam Hatmaker recreated The Golden Girls and their memorable Miami home with superb accuracy. There’s even extra characters included for some fan favorite episodes.

“This is a recreation of the Golden Girls House used in filming the popular 1980’s show that is still watched daily around the world. It is the Foyer, Living Room, and Kitchen built like a TV set, with one wall removed and a full view into the space. It comes with 5 minifigures including Dorothy, Rose, Sophia, Blanche, and Stanley. It has been meticulously recreated to have opening cupboards and fridge in the kitchen, Wicker Sofa and Chairs, a hallway backdrop, a storage closet in the kitchen, and an outdoor area with potted plants and a hose.

I have recreated many classic scenes from the show, including a visit from Burt Reynolds, Rose shooting Blanche’s Vase, Dorothy Playing “Grab That Dough” and Rose rescuing her Teddy Bear from a mean little girl.”

Sam submitted his creation to LEGO Ideas in hopes of earning the 10,000 necessary for official review. Check out close-ups of the awesome set after the break.
