This time they’ve tackled the McQuarrie concept costume of Luke Skywalker. Here’s hoping that other McQuarrie concept costumes soon follow! [StarWars] (more…)

ABOVE:  Ten of the actors who were rotoscoped for the first three Mortal Kombat games came together last weekend at the Galloping Ghost Arcade in Brookfield, Illinois, to hang out with some fans. Impossible! I saw Sub-Zero get his head ripped off twenty years ago, and yet there he is, alive and well. I don’t understand! All things considered, they’ve aged pretty well (except for Johnny Cage, guy to the far right) and look like they can still very much kick some ass. [Kotaku (more…)

ABOVE: Super7‘s SDCC-exclusive Alien Egg Chamber Playset. Is the girl on the box ecstatic or horrified? Boy looks to either be reveling in her disgust/misery, or is mid tear himself. Seriously, this is a f*cked thing to be letting kids play with. Did the photographer have them blindfolded, slipped in the playset, uncovered their eyes and snapped camera to capture their scarred for life looks? That’s some sinister sh*t.

Check Out This Very Well Said Argument On The Subject of Boobs in Cosplay

- 06-30-14Cosplay, Nerd Culture Posted by Luke Gallagher

unnamed

When it comes to sexuality in Cosplay,  men and women, but mostly men, often forget that there is a person behind the provocative attire.  People see a pair of boobs and all of a sudden it’s Armageddon, or BooBageddon. The masses let loose a firestorm of attacks often using lewd comments and negative judgments as their ammunition. Why would anyone would want set foot on a con floor, or on the internet, in the face of such repugnant behavior? (more…)

Enter For Your Chance To Win a GIANT Box of ‘Transformer Age of Extinction’ Toys!

- 06-29-14Cool Stuff, Film, Nerd Culture Posted by Luke Gallagher

TransformersGiveaway

Transformers: Age of Extinction is out this week and with it, viewers are in store for more of “tough guys acting tough, hot girls being hot, giant robots fighting, and stuff blowing up real good” (a line taken from our recent Review, which you should check out). It also means, a barrage of new toys and collectibles. There can’t be a new Transformers movie and there not be another assortment of transforming plastic play things for kids and young adults to enjoy. The cynics out there will undoubtedly roll their eyes at the overwhelming and sometimes unnecessary slew of merchandise, but when it comes to HASBRO toys, you cannot argue that they make options for every type of fans – from the adult collector, easy to please idyllic youths and everyone in between.

With the release of the film, HASBRO has been kind enough to send us a sampling of their latest Transformers toy offerings. Its to serve as a preview of  their wide array of new products, which like I said, are meant for varied age groups and interest levels. You can check photos and descriptions below. More importantly, however, we’re giving you the chance to WIN the whole kit and caboodle! 12 items valued at over $200! All yours!
