I only wish this were a real magazine. Kirk is just so dreamy
via boldly gone a webseries that I just picked up, and am enjoying very much, it’s about another pretty good captain in the star trek ‘verse that feels like he’s constantly getting overshadow’s by kirk’s accomplishments.
A print that imitates the look of stained glass. Just tape it up in the window and viola, instant stained glass. This window features our favorite caped crusader and his supporting cast.

Wonder Woman is arguably one of the most powerful female characters of all time and a fan favorite in the DC Universe. Not only is Gal an amazing actress, but she also has that magical quality that makes her perfect for the role. We look forward to audiences discovering Gal in the first feature film incarnation of this beloved character.
Hm. I’m hoping she does better than her outting in the F&F films.
Feels like a cat to me.

You may have noticed a lot of Gerber knifes being wielded in the Walking Dead. Why, just this past weekend Glenn took out a Zombie in a pharmacy with the Gerber Gator Machete Pro.
That having been said, Gerber is looking to capitalize on zombie mania with an official Walking Dead Apocalypse survival toolkit. It contains seven stabby and slashy tools for $350. Shipping is slated for December 5th and only 200 kits will be available.
Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Hot Wheels Elite 1:18 Scale Vehicle:
Hot Wheels Elite version of the famed Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters!
Extreme detail in 1:18 scale die-cast.
Don’t get spooked. Order yours while you can!
Finally, a Hot Wheels Elite version of the famed Ecto-1 from Ghostbusters! In 1:18 scale die-cast, this Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Vehicle features the extreme details you expect in the Mattel Hot Wheels Elite Collector line. Don’t get spooked. Order yours while you can! Ages 13 and up.
The Ecto-1 is the legendary vehicle that the Ghostbusters used to travel throughout the city busting ghosts. The vehicle used for the Ecto-1 was a 1959 Cadillac professional ambulance, built by the Miller-Meteor Company and converted by Universal Studios.
Ghostbusters is the famous 1984 American comedy film about three eccentric New York City parapsychologists turned ghost exterminators.
Back when I was in the working world, I had a pretty sweet car collection up on a shelf, now they’re all in a box in a sad corner of my home office…but I can’t help that think the Ecto-1 (or the a-team classic, whew mama) would make some great additions.
Hostess Brands, whose quirky full-page ads for Twinkies, CupCakes and Fruit Pies were a hallmark of American comic books from 1975 to 1982, is expected to file for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection as early as this week.
this is what happens when you stop advertising in comics.
Our DeLorean V2.1 was by far our most popular and highly praised item we have ever offered. But we decided it was time for something new, something sleeker and better built. Our Version 4.0 retains the same smooth hover-mode wheel system that made V2.1 so popular, however it is now wrapped up in a stronger frame while also allowing a lower height to more accurately match the real DeLorean DMC-12.
I had no clue there were custom lego sets out there that you could buy…I think this is going on my wishlist…
Over at Bernd Schneider’s Star Trek site, you can find illustrations of 37 different bridges, plus another nine shuttle cockpits.
Not to get too nerdy about it, but some of the ‘shuttlecraft’ on that site are actually runabouts 😛
is she even in any comics any more?
I was gravely disappointed that Iron Man didn’t come crashing in from the ceiling.
Remember the big hoopla about the fact that the first AVENGERS movie poster had Scarlet Johansson’s Black Widow was showing off her T AND her A, both at the same time, and everyone was all up in arms, because really, who wants to look at that anyways, right? Well, here’s Marvel’s answer to the hoopla: Iron Man’s perfect iron butt and shiny chest, all at the same time!
Finally four unique fragrances assembled together for the first time!
Yes, for only $60, you too can smell like an alcholic that’s been locked inside a iron can for 8 hours. Or a god that hasn’t been introduced to a razor blade yet, or perhaps even a man that has freezer burn. I dont’ even want to know what the mutated / radioactive flesh of The Incredible Hulk would smell like…

Celebrating the hijinks of Disney’s WHO FRAMED ROGER RABBIT? comes the Jessica Rabbit Premium Format Figure, presenting the sultry siren in stunning detail.

Capturing the object of Roger Rabbit’s affection, the Jessica Rabbit Premium Format Figure is a perfect addition to any collection or Disney display.
I think it’s hilarious that there’s still this stigma out there about comic shop owners that seems to imply they’re just little boys running a store and not men trying to make a profit off the crushed dreams of a nerd filled hobby.
Or maybe that’s just my local comic shop that I’m thinking of?
…the Wonder Woman Sportage adds an aero kit, and is finished in a red and blue paint scheme accented with silver stars, much like the heroine’s outfit. The gold trim on parts of the CUV represent Wonder Woman’s Lasso of Truth, while the Tiger Nose grille wears the Wonder Woman’s eagle chest-plate emblem. Blue headlight beams mirror her blue eyes, and the windshield is topped off with a tiara sticker. Chrome side panels represent her invisible jet, and the five-spoke wheels match the stars stamped on the side of the Sportage.
Open up the doors, and red upholstery is highlighted with blue LED accent lighting. The custom seats are embroidered with her logo, and the rear cargo area is decorated with stars and an eagle, along with a see-through panel that displays Wonder Woman’s bracelets, tiara, and her golden lasso.
Apparently Kanye West tried to pitch a Muppet comedy show called Alligator Boots to Comedy Central and talked Kim Kardashian into appearing in the pilot wearing Princess Leia’s bikini from Return of the Jedi

Lego bricks are beloved all the world over — now they have made it into orbit as part of a joint NASA-Lego educational project. The model of the International Space Station (ISS) was created while in orbit as a way of engaging children as to what it is like living and working in zero gravity.
I’d wager that it doesn’t come back from orbit in one piece.
Lego sent its team back out to scrutinize girls, starting in 2007. Lego confirmed that girls favor role-play, but they also love to build–just not the same way as boys. Whereas boys tend to be "linear"–building rapidly, even against the clock, to finish a kit so it looks just like what’s on the box–girls prefer "stops along the way," and to begin storytelling and rearranging.
Then there are the lady figures. Twenty-nine mini-doll figures will be introduced in 2012, all 5 millimeters taller and curvier than the standard dwarf minifig. There are five main characters. Like American Girl Dolls, which are sold with their own book-length biographies, these five come with names and backstories. The key difference between girls and the ladyfig and boys and the minifig was that many more girls projected themselves onto the ladyfig–she became an avatar. Boys tend to play with minifigs in the third person. "The girls needed a figure they could identify with, that looks like them," says Rosario Costa, a Lego design director. The Lego team knew they were on to something when girls told them, "I want to shrink down and be there."
The Lego Friends team is aware of the paradox at the heart of its work: To break down old stereotypes about how girls play, it risks reinforcing others.
really? girls wouldn’t play with regular ol’ legos with spaceships, trains, tanks, helicoptors, bears, et al? I find that highly unlikely.
LEGO Star Wars 9492 TIE Fighter
Behold, the standard fighter in the Emperor’s Navy! The TIE Fighter is back, and this time it includes a bunch of figures like the TIE Pilot, the Imperial Office, the new Death Star Trooper, and the new R5-J2. Build a squad of them and crush the Rebel Alliance! 413 pieces. Ages 8 to 14.
I own a version of the tie inteceptor in lego, but it didn’t come with any of those cool minifigs.
Yesterday, I lost my day job. I was fired for some rather dubious reasons, but it boiled down to the fact that someone on the board of directors didn’t like the fact that I had a job, so they lobbied to correct that situation, and thus I find myself wondering how I’m going to make my next mortgage payment, or how I’m going to buy my next beer (answer, no beer until I’m back in the work force).
That being said, now that I’m temporarily unemployed, I’m going to devote much more time to the various websites that I have created and just let coast, including www.internet-d.com www.movieties.com and www.myconfinedspace.com My first task to to create a new “landing page” for mcs. This also means TIMELY posts on internet-d and movieties, so please feel free to visit those sites.
Another thing this means? I’m going to be in the MCS chatroom MUCH more, and I’m going to need people to talk to, so feel free to swing on by. This is going to be a full time gig for a while, so starting 8:30am EST until
The newest addition to Nick Jensen’s collection of brick-built Halo weapons is this life-sized reproduction of the Sniper Rifle System 99 Anti-Matériel (aka Halo sniper rifle) made almost entirely from LEGO.
Here’s the first look at the upcoming Lord of the Rings Lego figures to be included in the Lord of the Rings Lego sets. Looks for the sets to be hitting stores and online retailers around June 2012.

Have a spare 200 hours of your life laying around and “hundreds of dollars”? You can build your own Portal Turret!

So you think you’re a huge fan of the Dark Knight, huh? Not so fast. Do you own a full-sized Batmobile? Yeah… we didn’t think so.
