In case you can’t place it, this is modeled after the “Marvel Heroes” line of kids’ toys and cartoons — not the terrific Marvel movie from this Summer. [Source]

With the movie only five months away, Hunger Games fever is at an all-time high right now. Pictured: the all-important “Mockingjay” symbol from the books and the film. [Source]

The Smurfs

God help us all, The Smurfs was one of this year’s biggest box office hits — for kiddie flicks, that is. Here’s Smurfette, the one and only girl Smurf. (Seriously, how does the species procreate with only one female? Must be a “queen bee” kind of thing…) [Source]

Steve Jobs #1

I couldn’t resist including two Steve Jobs tributes after seeing how amazing both of these are. First up: a spot-on recreation of the late Apple creator, all lit up at night. [Source]

The second tribute I came across uses the same photo as its source, but generates a completely different result by applying the methods of a true sculptor. Here’s how it looks in the dark. [Source]


Thor pumpkin carving

Fantastic rendition of Thor’s hammer, from this summer’s blockbuster movie (and the comic book, of course). Also see this photo of it glowing. [Source]


Transformers pumpkin carving

Not sure, but I think that’s Shockwave, who was of course one of the big baddies in this summer’s Transformers: Dark of the Moon. Somebody correct me if I’m wrong. [Source]

The Walking Dead

The infamous “Bicycle Girl” from the pilot episode of AMC’s mega-hot zombie apocalypse series, which just entered its second season. Not the greatest picture, but impressive work on the pumpkin. [Source]
