Sad about saying goodbye to the Mythbusters? Cheer up! Just because the show is over doesn’t mean that we won’t continue to see Adam Savage make awesome stuff.

In this video, Savage shows us how he made his own prop-version of Hellboy’s sword from the comics in one day. I happen to prefer Hellboy’s Good Samaritan (Savage also has a screen-used version of that), but the sword is pretty darn cool too.

See it come together in the video below.

street fighter chalk art top

Chalk artist Chris Carlson put his talents to work creating a Street Fighter backdrop starring Ryu. The creation also features a unique twist on perspective, allowing Chris to actually step into the ring.

However, when the art is brought to life, Chris is quickly destroyed by a Hadouken from his own creation.

See it come together in the video below.

Nick Luciano has a pretty awesome Dad. He’s the kind of Dad that’s willing to look ridiculous on camera reenacting animations from popular games for laughs. In their latest video, he’s recreating all of the Final Fantasy VII summons using a Swiffer as a prop.

That’s right. His Buster Sword also busts dirt and grime.

If you haven’t seen HBO’s The Wire, remedy that immediately. It’s one of best television shows ever made. If you’re already obsessed familiar, this animated video by Elliot Lim is a lovely tribute that certainly deserves a watch.

samurai baseball

We’ve seen master swordsman Isao Machii battle robots and fried shrimp, but now he’s taking on his fiercest enemy yet—a 100 mph (161 km/h) fastball.

Needless to say, the enemies of the samurai have changed dramatically over the years.

mjolnir prank

Watch what happens when an electromagnetic Mjolnir replica and a fingerprint scanner become key to proving who’s worthy to wield Thor’s weapon.

Interestingly, it’s brains that win this one in the end. Loki would be pleased.

I wonder how those samurai frogs we posted earlier would fare against a horned lizard that gloriously rides a badass mech into battle?

Mario Skate? Indeed, Luigi’s got himself a longboard and he’s ready to go for the high score in this video by CorridorDigital.

doctor who maisie

The last Doctor Who trailer already had enough tantalizing glimpses to make me shout “WHY IS IT NOT SEPTEMBER, YET!?” and this new one is even more interesting.

More creatures, more Missy, more mysterious Maisie Williams, Daleks, Zygons—Clara with a bazooka. None of it makes sense right now, but we are looking forward to the journey.

Watch it after the break.

That’s not realistic CGI. It’s an actual guy who is part of a viking battle stunt show. Alex Yde has been practicing parkour for 12 years and it comes in handy for his work in the show. He’s been with Puy du Fou in France for three years playing different roles and decided to film one day’s adventures from his perspective.

Dive into the battle after the break.
