Above: The Skywalker Coat of Arms. Available as a shirt, here. But, umm, isn’t there like, somebody missing? Or was the Death Star really Darth Vader’s true love and I’ve been missing the clues?(Fashionably Geek)
Perfect, perfect, perfect! I am in love with how well this trailer mash-up works. As a child raised through the 90s, how could I not be a huge fan of both The Lion King and Batman (due to the celebrated animated series). Mashing the Disney classic with the audio from The Dark Knight Rises is genius work. (The Mary Sue)
Smart move sexy Link, hide your face. Internet stalkers, do not want. Or am I missing out on some kind of peek-a-boo kink? (Fashionably Geek)
Wil Wheaton, never one to mince his words, tells us how he really feels about the Kardashians. (Reddit)
This is how they celebrate New Year’s in Ecuador. This Hulk and others, like The Smurfs, dinosaurs and Thundercats are giant, “paper and wooden sculptures called “años viejos,” or “old years” in English.” (Geekosystem)
Now this is genius. Seriously, Robot Chicken, hire them. Jean-Luc Picard, Geordi LaForge, and Data, action figures, dance to “Single Ladies.” (The Mary Sue)
A fantastic new Cracked.com list, 5 Characters Who Totally Missed the Moral of Their Own Movie is a must read. The Jedi and their clone slaves. Superman fighting for truth, justice and the American way! (But only when it’s convenient.) Hilariously eye-opening.
A must-need accessory for any Batcave. Sadly you can no longer buy the fan on Esty, but if you’re feeling crafty and have a hand saw, umm…handy, then go for it. (Geeks of Doom)
There is some cuteness overload going on over at this post on Buzzfeed featuring some damn freakin’ cute geek plushies.
