First Listen: This Is What Kylo Ren Will Sound Like In ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’

Happy #ForceFriday
"Together, we will destroy the resistance."

A week ago, we got our first look at some of the toys that will be offered for sale in conjunction with the release of the forthcoming sequel film Star Wars: The Force Awakens. We learned that the toys would be released in a worldwide roll out called #ForceFriday where retailers would be open at midnight to begin sales. Among the toys, is an action figure of the mysterious character Kylo Ren (played by Adam Driver). Altho we don’t know for sure, it seems likely that Kylo Ren is a “bad guy”/Darth Vader type character. The action figure/doll featured in the video above, gives us our first listen of Kylo Ren‘s voice as he delivers dialog from the movie. This first listen of the character gives us a bit of insight as to the kind of character he may be in the unfolding Star Wars saga. Have a listen above and “meet” what might possibly be the new Darth Vader.

Watch: Here Is A Commercial For ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ LEGO Toys

"You can build the X-Wing and save the droid"
"Watch out! It's Kylo Ren!"

A few days ago, we got to see promo photos of some of the toys that will be released for sale in conjunction with the release of the upcoming sequel film Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Today we get to see a TV commercial for one of those coveted toys. As you can see above, this commercial advertises the sale of The Force Awakens LEGO building sets. The commercial is cute and it stars new Star Wars characters Kylo Ren and BB-8. Now, as a big LEGO and Star Wars fan, I think it’s a given that I’m gonna have to buy all of the things so this commercial is preaching to the choir. I hope you guys have some money saved because I think the release of these Star Wars toys is going to empty quite a few bank accounts.

Watch: Here Is The Trailer For ‘Ant-Man’ In LEGO

Brilliant!
Everything is better in LEGO

Ant-Man was the #1 movie at the box office this weekend, bringing in $58 million dollars … making it the 12th straight Marvel Studios movie to debut atop the box office. For some insane reason, some outlets are reporting that Ant-Man “underperformed” because it was expected to bring in $60 million dollars in its opening weekend. But I think a difference of $2 million ain’t bad, particularly for a movie about a comic book hero that most people never heard of or are not a fan of. I loved the movie very much and I’m really looking forward to seeing it again in 4DX tomorrow. BUT I DIGRESS. Today, I’d like to share the Ant-Man trailer that has been recreated using LEGO building blocks. As is usually the case with these kinds of videos, this LEGO version of the trailer is really impressive. Ant-Man fans, assemble! Check out the trailer above recreated in LEGO and see much much cuter Ant-Man and Yellowjacket look as they battle to the death … in LEGO.

Watch: Here Is The LEGO Version Of Britney Spears’s Music Video For ‘Pretty Girls’

Genius Level
"All around the world / LEGO girls"

An industrious fan decided to take the new music video for Britney Spears‘s new single Pretty Girls, which features Iggy Azalea on guest (c)rap vocals, and give it a LEGO make-over … and the results are utterly and completely brilliant. As you can see above, the video is a scene-by-scene recreation of the Pretty Girls video but with LEGO figures and building blocks. I about died when the short hair version of Britney first appeared at the car wash … then did, in fact, fall down #DEAD during the final dance scene in the club (Her hair! I can’t!!). As much fun as the original video is, I think this LEGO version is pretty damn great, too. Have a look, fall in love.

This Miley Cyrus Barbie Has Pink Armpit Hair, Obviously

ADORBS. Just kidding, it's terrifying.

Maybe this Monday morning you were thinking, “I need a change—I need to try something new.” If that’s the case, then you have Miley Cyrus to thank, because boy. Does she have an idea for you! A little while back she actually debuted her pink armpit hair on Instagram with this lovely little NSFW photo, and apparently someone decided to make a Barbie version of this look. Personally, I’ll be sticking with the Ava DuVernay doll, but you should probably take a look at this one anyway. Click inside for more!

The Ava DuVernay Barbie Doll Is Every Damn Thing Ever

My birthday's in like 2 months. Just sayin'.

I almost fell off my couch and into an abyss of eternal happiness and understanding when I first saw these photos of Mattel‘s new Ava DuVernay Barbie doll. The most exciting part is that the brilliant auteur is just one of six incredibly accomplished women being honored by Mattel. The WORST news is that the doll is a one-of-a-kind, and they’re being auctioned off for charity. I mean, that’s great for the charity, but what about me? What about what I need?!

DC Comics Is Launching A New Superhero Universe Designed For Girls

Action figures, books, TV specials, LEGO play sets and MORE!

After that unsavory business concerning the comments made by Chris Evans and Jeremy Renner earlier today, I’m ecstatic that I have some very positive comic book / superhero news to share right now. DC Comics has announced that the will unveil a line of products designed for female comic book fans. DC Super Hero Girls will be a line of products that will range from books to TV shows, movies to toys and everything in between. While there is no reason that any person of any gender can enjoy anything comic book-related, it’s refreshing to see that DC Comics has decided to gear a line of products specifically for the large portion of their fanbase that is all too often neglected and taken advantage of. Click below to learn more about this exciting new line of superhero stuff coming our way. More »

Watch: The Second Teaser For ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Has Been Recreated In LEGO

How do these things get made so fast?
Everything is better in LEGO

The second teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens was released only yesterday and mere hours later, it was already recreated in LEGO form by an industrious fan. As you may recall, the first Force Awakens teaser trailer was remade a few times by fans (in LEGO form, in George Lucas form, in Wes Anderson form, etc.) after it was released last November … and so, it looks like the same thing is happening with the second teaser. Click the embed above to watch the brand new teaser for Star Wars: The Force Awakens in impressive LEGO form. I am amazed at how well the teaser was recreated and with the speed at which it was produced. Aren’t you?
