A DIY Borderlands Claptrap Trashcan

Published by under Images,Video Games

claptrap-2

The good folks at Our Nerd Home have created a DIY project like no other. It’s a Claptrap garbage can, the robot pulled from the Borderlands universe where he’s usually standing around being snarky rather than shoving trash inside his head.

The process to create the can was pretty lengthy, and you can see all the stages at their site here. You could probably do it yourself if you had the time and talent, but I’m content to admire from a far.

A few more pictures of Claptrap in action below: Continue Reading »

Indie Game: The Art

Published by under Images,Video Games

The last few years have seen an explosion of Indie games as audiences have accepted cheaper, simpler games that are executed well. No need for huge AAA campaigns or super HD graphics. Rather, it plays well and/or is hilarious, that’s good enough to fashion an Indie hit.

This artwork by Memoski takes nearly all the biggest success stories of the Indie scene and puts them in one place. If you can name them all, I will give you the key to Unreality (it’s a figurative key. and shaped like a Pokeball fused with a Disney Princess tiara).

A Gallery of DC Comics’ Bombshells

Published by under Comics,Images

Ant Lucia is one of the best artists around, and specializes in pin-up style art from decades past. They’ve done an entire series of pin-ups based on various DC heroines, and as you might expect, it makes for a pretty cool gallery. We don’t exactly paint these things on the side of warplanes anymore, but that doesn’t mean they wouldn’t look great hanging in your house somewhere.

Check out their site here for more, and see the entire series below: Continue Reading »

Some Rather Gorgeous Disney Gender Swaps

Published by under Images,Movies

out_of_water_by_sakimichan-d79ulj8

Usually when we see “gender swap” art or cosplay, it’s girls taking over traditionally masculine roles. As fun as that may be, it’s interesting to see the other side as well. From regularly featured artist Sakimi Chan comes a series of rather amazing Disney swaps with BOTH genders represented for a change. I mean, there are a lot of princesses after all.

My favorite is probably Boyriel (Arian?) who appears to be straight out of a Final Fantasy game, but I also like Cruella Dudeville (I’m really pushing it with these). Swapped Beauty and the Beast may be the strangest, while flipped Nightmare Before Christmas is the most innovative. The entire series is below, and definitely worth a look.

Not Sure How I Feel About Adult Baby Avengers

Published by under Images,Movies

I’m normally a fan of babies. They’re cute and cuddly and sometimes loud and smelly but that’s forgivable. As you may guess, I do not have one, but someday that’s bound to happen.

But these babies? I’m not quite as enthused. They’re Avengers, baby-fied, but in a way that’s not quite cute, since many of them have facial hair. They’re closer to dwarves than babies most of the time, and the effect is a bit off-putting.

Good work Ben Oliver. You are talented and have made me uncomfortable.

Realistic Movie Toys Make for Very Cool Live Action Posters

Published by under Images,Movies

movie-posters-toys-8

I’m sure any collector would get angry for me mixing up “toys” and “figurines,” but I grew up with a tub full of superhero action figures, so it’s a hard habit to break. In reality, many action figures have become just “figures” now, and as such, have a level of realism to them that’s simply unprecedented.

One collector, Romain Vendrell, is also a great photographer, and decided to light and pose his figures in such a way where they could be edited into movie posters. The figures are so realistic, the effect is pretty eerie, and you should check out the rest from Wolverine to Captain America to Batman below: Continue Reading »

The Dream Team

Published by under Images,Video Games

Deviantartist LoneFireWarrior took to Garry’s Mod and Photoshop to craft what could be the most badass cast of characters ever assembled in one place. He’s pulled from mostly video games, but a few films (hello ringleader Fett) and I’m not sure who you could add to make this team more scary. Batman? Kratos? Jesus Christ?

Here’s a question. Out of everyone here, who is actually the most powerful? I know Fett is iconic, but frankly, I think he’s one of the weakest. Dude was accidentally bumped into a Sarlac pit, after all. I’d have to go with Starcraft Sarah Kerrigan being on a whole other level compared to the assortment of space marines seen here. That girl’s got power.

What do you think?

Too Much Nerdbait: Disney Princesses Play Dungeons and Dragons

Published by under Images,Movies

Is there such a thing as too much nerdbait? Disney Princesses playing D&D may be close, if so.

But it’s a great piece from artist Madam Marla, and for some reason I’m laughing at Snow White as the Dungeon Master. Every time I see a Disney Princess collage a Merida is there, I think that she’d probably rather be anywhere else than hanging out with a bunch of girly girl princesses. She really doesn’t fit the mold of the others, yet she’s always included.

A History of Live Action DC Costumes

Published by under Comics,Images,Movies

dc

Hitokirivader had a rather cool idea to show the evolution of the live action costumes of the most iconic DC comics characters over the years. Both Batman and Superman have appeared onscreen for over half a century now, and as a result, have undergone a whole lot of transformations.

And then…he only thought it was fair to do the same for Wonder Woman as well. There we have Lynda Carter’s iconic one-piece annnnnd that’s it. Outside of some fantastic cosplay by amateurs, Wonder Woman has yet to grace the screen in any meaningful capacity. That will change with Batman vs. Superman, but even then I doubt Diana Prince will have a full costume yet when that film rolls around. It’ll take another few years for her spin-off to finally get off the ground, and I’d say best case scenario, we see a Wonder Woman film by 2018.

I suppose he could have included this WW costume from the never-aired-for-good-reason NBC pilot, but I don’t think that actually counts.

Olly Moss’s Game of Thrones

Fan-freaking-tastic. At long last, our favorite artist Olly Moss has devoted a huge amount of time and effort to recreating a number of Game of Thrones characters for the image above. Drawn in typical Moss cartoony style, there’s everyone from Bolton to Lannister to Stark to uh, Walker.

Click on the image to zoom in a bit and see more detail. If you look too closely, there may be some spoilers, however.

I hope he keeps going until all like 938 characters in the show and books are covered.

Cosplay of the Day: Lady Spoiler of Spoilers

Published by under Cosplay,Images,Television

game_of_thrones_lady_stoneheart_cosplay_06

I’m going to tread very carefully here… This is a BIG GAME OF THRONES SPOILER, but just by looking at this picture, you won’t know why the f*** that would be unless you read the books. But in any case, go no further, and I won’t even discuss the character in question here until after the jump, just in case. Continue Reading »
