With as much drama as there was in Tennant’s Tardis a sitcom parody couldn’t have been far behind. Rose loved him, Martha loved him, Jack, umm, just wanted to do him. And whose Donna, Phoebe? (TheMarySue)
No, this isn’t a head shot of actor, Peter Cushing this is a bust of Grand Moff Tarkin so realistic you’ll believe you’re living in some alternative universe where the Death Star didn’t explode and the Moff is you’re new deadbeat roommate. Creepy yet super cool. For more images check out NerdApproved.
Maybe you don’t want a hyper realistic bust of Peter Cushing, you want a another dead guy immortallized in your pad. How about the Superman, Christopher Reeves. This is a life-size statue unlike the bust above, all 6ft 4in of him. Honestly, you’re not going to freak out any prospective girlfriends with this statue. At least none worth keeping. (Blastr)
Want to spend hours searching through your favorite movies and televisions shows to pick out some great easter eggs? Of course not, but Cracked has done a bang up job for you with, 7 Insane Easter Eggs Hidden in Movies and TV Shows.
Every geek girl is gonna want a pair of these for listening to their tunes. Or, you know, if you’re planning to cosplay Princess Vespa from Spaceballs. (FashionablyGeek)
A cafe in Boston called Cafe Boobah has covered the walls of their kid’s room in Legos. Genius! Excuse me while I take my latte into the kiddie room to create a massive Lego sculpture on the wall. (TDW:Geeks)
Feel your iPad is just too modern? iPWN’s Gameboy cases will solve that problem in a jiffy. Also available in 3G and 4 sizes. Perfect if you’ve hacked your phone to play classic Gameboy games. (TDW:Geeks)
An incredible Star Wars wedding which is also totally beautiful and classy? Wow, what a hell of an achievement. Princess Leia flowergirls, Imperial honor guard, Moff Tarkin officiator and father of the bride dressed as Obi-wan?! Perfect. More images from their special day available at OffbeatBride. (TheMarySue)
10 of our Childhood’s Animated Films That Could Really Bear Closer Inspectation, is a list you need to check out if you have fond memories of such classics as All Dogs Go To Heaven and Disney’s The Hunchback of Notre Dame.
Some Barnes & Noble locations have begun displaying comic books on their magazine shelves. Awesome, but is this a lat ditch effort to save the print industry or another nail in the coffin of the local comic shop? (BleedingCool)
Is this dude the coolest guy on the planet or what? Not only is he cool enough to have a giant Companion Cube but he’s transporting it in a Jurassic Park jeep!? (GeeksAreSexy)
Finally! Finally, they make an authentic, G-1 transforming Unicron toy. How awesome. Collectors everywhere just collectively shit their pants. Sign me up for one! Becomes available in October. (ToplessRobot)
Screenrant has almost a dozen new character posters for Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2. Like this one above featuring Fred and George, totally kick ass.
How incredible is this Steampunk Ash? Just look at his boomstick! Brilliant. (GeeksAreSexy)
Lost creator, Damon Lindeof had some things to say about January Jones’ portrayal of Emma Frost in X-Men: First Class. And I have to admit he’s kind of right, even he’s a bit of dick for tweeting it. (Blastr)
Apparently, Anne Hathaway is really getting to character for her part as Catwoman in The Dark Knight Rises. The Mary Sue‘s reporting she, “while shooting scenes as Selina Kyle, Hathaway “got a bit carried away during a fight scene and mistakenly shoved the butt of the gun right into the actor’s eye socket,” leaving the stuntman with a nasty shiner and actress “mortified.” Oops. But this means she must be brining one fiesty Miss Kitty to the screen. Mrowr!
This doesn’t look like Tatooine? And there’s something a little sexy about where that speeder’s parked. (NerdApproved)
What a summer it would be if all they sexy ladies lounging pool side were sporting suits modeled after Captain America and Aquaman. It would be a beautiful nerdy sight, indeed. (ComicsAlliance)
The best new tumblr you should be following, Actors with Action Figures. Sort of creepy but also crazy adorable. If you can’t guess from the name the blog is all photos of actors an their tiny plastic counterparts. Prepare to waste more minutes than you’d care to admit. (TDW:Geeks)
