ABOVE: A tank with a giant Darth Vader head is totally rad on its own, but it gets even cooler when you look closely and realize it’s made from all different kinds of materials. Gabriel Dishaw used typewriter keys, computer parts, airplane parts and obviously a toy tank to create this fantastic Tank Vader. [Technabob]

LEGO and TT Games have just released a new trailer for their LEGO Marvel Super Heroes video game coming out on October 10th that brings us the details on some of the game’s storyline. This game looks incredibly fun and should hit all the right buttons in a number of age groups, young and old alike.

There’s plenty of great catch phrases being bandied about, like just how does one, “Spangle” someone? I’m going to have to play the game to find out. I kinda wish I could play the villain’s side… who wouldn’t want to assemble and fire Doctor Doom’s Doom-ray of Doom?
Take a look and let us know what you think in the comments section below. Which character are you looking forward to playing, and what did you think about that last villain that pops up in the end of the video?

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes complements the LEGO Marvel Super Heroes construction toy collection, which brings the characters, vehicles and action of Marvel’s renowned universe to the world of LEGO build-and-play adventure. There are currently eight iconic scenes from the X-Men, Iron Man and Spider-Man franchises available and more construction sets tied to the new Iron Man 3 feature film will launch later this spring.  

LEGO Marvel Super Heroes offers an original storyline in which Nick Fury calls upon Iron Man, the Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, Wolverine and other heroes spanning the Marvel Universe to save Earth from such threats as the vengeance of Loki and the hunger of Galactus, Devourer of the Worlds.  LEGO and Marvel fans will enjoy classic LEGO videogame adventure and humor, while playing as their favorite Marvel characters.

In LEGO Marvel Super Heroes, players will unlock more than 100 characters from across the Marvel Universe, including fan favorites like Spider-Man, Iron Man, Wolverine, Captain America, the Hulk, Thor, Black Widow, Hawkeye, Deadpool, Dr. Doom, Electra, Agent Coulson, Magneto, Silver Samurai, The Punisher, Beast, Green Goblin, Juggernaut, Squirrel Girl, Loki and Galactus! The game will pack in a plethora of super-cool character abilities, combat-like action sequences, epic battle scenes, puzzle-solving and a unique story told with playful LEGO humor.

ABOVE: Nerd Bastards has it’s very own beer. Unfortunately, this isn’t for purchase. It’s just something I brewed here locally in Boston, MA and had our very own Jeremy Hudson whip up the sweet label you see. Bitch’n Bespin Brau is a Saison style beer, which is a french farmhouse inspired brew. It’s rebellious, yet FORCEful. Maybe we’ll have to organize a fan meet-up so that y’all can try it.

So, this cosplay featuring two corseted X-Men, including my favorite fellow ginger Phoenix, is making me drool, big time! Photo by Ron McKitrick. [Fashionably Geek]

If Alastor “Mad-Eye” Moody was a Wookiee bounty hunter. Even though Star Wars and Harry Potter are totally unrelated, I’m oddly OK with this. You’re Wookiee Harry! [GAS]
