To be unveiled on Force Friday
On Friday September 4, Star Wars and Hasbro plan to unveil to the world the toys that will be sold in conjunction with the forthcoming release of the new Star Wars sequel film The Force Awakens. Dubbed Force Friday, the toys featured in the gallery presented here (and more) will be unveiled in a global unboxing that will take place on You Tube all day long. Star Wars toys are among the most beloved and most collectible toys in the world, so it makes sense that Disney would want to capitalize on the release of a new collection of Star Wars toys. Click through the gallery to see some of the offerings that will be made available for sale soon and click below to learn more about how these toys will be unveiled on Force Friday. More »
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.

Here come the First Order Stormtroopers
Next month when San Diego Comic-Con takes over the world, fans will be treated to all sorts of fun geeky things … not the least of which is the unveiling of new toys and merchandise tied to forthcoming feature films. Star Wars: The Force Awakens will open in theaters in December which means it will be preceded by a collection of toys. We already know that a line of customizable lightsaber toys is on the way but today we get our first look at the first toys actually tied directly to The Force Awakens. If you thought the new Stormtroopers seen in the most recent Star Wars trailer look pretty cool, wait ’til you see them in action figure form. More »
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.
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!

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?!

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 »
How do these things get made so fast?
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?

The TV Guide
Last night was a really quite day/night for me. With all the great TV shows that aired last night, I decided to order in and stay on the couch all night. New eps of Survivor, Best New Restaurant, Arrow, Empire and re-runs of The Golden Girls and Sex and the City filled up my DVR faster than I could watch everything so … I had to stay in. More »
