Whatever you may think of the Ghostbusters now being women, I think I wouldn’t be wrong in saying that Slimer remains a constant. And that you wouldn’t mind having him around you. Gross he may be, he holds a special place in our hearts. [Read more…]
It’s way too early to think about Christmas, ((When September the first hits, though, you’re good to go!)) but something as good as the S.H.I.E.L.D. Heli Carrier requires that special sense of excitement and anticipation that only the happiest season of the year can bring.
I think that by now, everyone has seen The Avengers, and having seen it only last weekend, remnants of the movie are still messing with my brain – on a Monday morning nonetheless. Hence, when I ran across the S.H.I.E.L.D. Heli Carrier, I knew that there is no way I am not writing about it.
For sure, I am not the only one who marveled at how that gigantic thing could lift itself out of the water in such an efficient way. Then again, with Iron Man, The Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow, and Nick Fury inside, that should not be such as surprise, should it? Additionally, I think that there were some questionable physics in the movie, but I really just enjoyed the movie and didn’t go all Sheldon Cooper on it.
Anyhow, this guy from Russia seems to have ideas about the S.H.I.E.L.D. Heli Carrier. More than ideas, he actually went ahead and built one – albeit a replica. While the “real” S.H.I.E.L.D. Heli Carrier was made of metal, wires, and all sorts of other materials, this replica is made of foam and paper.
Don’t get turned off by that, though, as it still looks rather impressive. Even better, it actually takes off from the water! Here, make your Monday a whole lot better by watching the video.
Get the details and more photos straight from the horse’s mouth here. It’s best if you can read Russian. Else, just use Google Translate.
On April 19th at 8:11 PM, Skynet was supposed to become aware. In the Terminator franchise that day is known as Judgment Day, when the machines turns against us. On April 19th Judgment Day didn’t come obviously. Twitter though was buzzing with the fact that they day had arrived. I’m sure the die hard fans secretly hoped it would happen, just for the fascination of time travel. Sheldon Cooper even added a Skynet clause to the roommate agreement with Leonard specifying about when one friend needs help to destroy an artificial intelligence he’s created and that’s taking over Earth.
As a fan of the Matrix franchise I also wonder sometimes if we live in a computer program, I guess that comes with being a geek.
No, your eyes are not deceiving you. You can now order your very own officially-licensed 1966-era Batmobile. Assuming you have a spare $149,999 lying around.
Fiberglass Freaks claims that their Batmobile is an exact replica of the car from the campy Adam West/Burt Ward TV show, and it really works. You even get Batman‘s signature booster rocket that spits flames out of the back of the car, as well as the red siren lightand all the other trimmings (but no weaponry, sadly). The car sports a GM 350 crate engine and new transmission so you can at least look like that flame-throwing booster is giving you super speed.
Everything about it is high-end, right down to the paint job, and you can see more details and full specs here.
Well, what you don’t get is a “Windows for Dummies” book from Amazon, or a Zune, or Microsoft Office.
What you might consider is the Plush Jobs 17-inch tall replica doll of… Steve Jobs – who else?
If your chosen Apple fan isn’t visibly delighted with a mini-Steve, then he or she is either lying, or isn’t as much of an Applehead as you thought.
