  • Watch A Nissan Outmaneuver The Empire

    1

    I love living in a world where car manufacturers see so much value in the Star Wars films, they deserve limited edition cars based on them. The latest vehicle to take to the streets is the 2017 Nissan Rogue: Rogue One Star Wars Limited Edition. That just rolls off of the tongue. Nothing about the SUV's exterior screams Star Wars, but there's apparently a special badge on it, designed by Lucasfilm. But who cars about the vehicle. The commercial is the real talking point here.

    Buckle up for another dumb car commercial.

  • This Is What Would Happen If Suicide Squad's Joker Became Batman

    6

    The Suicide Squad's version of The Joker has been the subject of criticism from the moment it was unveiled. Whether you like it or not, try wrapping your brain around this take on the Clown Prince wearing Batman's cape and cowl. What would that costume look like? Hot Toys has a vision of what it could be, and you'll soon be able to add it to your action figure collection. More

    Hot Toys' artists show us what they'd like to see from a Suicide Squad sequel.

  • Sideshow Shows Off New $450 Skeletor Statue

    4

    If I won the lottery, I'd pay off my house, take care of my family, buy a more reliable car, and then would spend ungodly amounts of money on expensive collectibles like Sideshow's upcoming Skeletor from Masters of the Universe. Retailing for $449.99, this detailed sculpt of Eternia's overlord of evil is slated to release in December. If you're willing to throw down the big bucks for it, preorders opened today. More

    Sideshow is selling this statue in two versions, the standard edition with the menacing eyes, and an exclusive version that comes with a second head that mimics his original cartoon look.

  • The Games I Completed In 2015

    17

    2015 will likely be the year I remember for falling in love with Star Wars again (The Force Awakens and the future of the franchise are my latest obsessions), but it was also a hell of a year for video games – a year filled with variety and a number of gargantuan hits. Despite December mostly being dedicated to Star Wars book reading and seeing the films again, I felt like I played most of the big hits this year, and found time to explore a number of games I normally wouldn't get to.

    After seeing Star Wars: The Force Awakens, artist Keri Rainock was reminded of Studio Ghibli's Nausicaa of the Valley of the Wind and decided to mash the two films together into a poster dubbed "The Scavenger."

  • A Relatively Cheap Way To Get Lego Superhero Minifigs

    3

    Collecting Lego minifigures can be expensive, especially if you're in the market for Marvel, DC, or Star Wars characters. All too often, the only way to get a popular character is to buy an expensive set. In the last few years, Lego has eased up on the pocket book a tad with smaller sets containing a couple of minifigures, and the occasional standalone figure in a bag. A new line of sets releasing in 2016 called Mighty Micros offers two noteworthy figures in each box for just $9.99. The first wave includes sets with Captain America and Red Skull, Hulk and Ultron, Spider-Man and Green Goblin, Flash and Captain Cold, Batman and Catwoman, and Robin and Bane. The Mighty Micros wave should be hitting stores in January. More

    A new wave of Lego sets offers two significant characters in each box for a surprisingly low cost.

  • Fans Show Off Star Wars-Inspired Cars At Celebration

    5

    People standing in line waiting for Star Wars Celebration's doors to open have plenty to look at. A Hot Wheels exhibit next to the line is a showcase of fan-made Star Wars vehicles. I talked with one of the car's owners, and it sounds like all of these rides are street legal, and driven frequently. Some of them even have astromech droids. More

    Why would you want a trunk when you can have an astromech droid instead?

  • I Wrote A Science-Fiction Book And You Can Read It Now!

    17

    When I was a kid, I always thought I would grow up to be a comic book artist or writer. From the moment I fell in love with the comic book medium, I had my own stories to tell. Some of my earliest work – which my parents still have tucked away in boxes under their stairs – focused on monsters and robots, strange stories that showed my admiration for science fiction. More

  • The Games I Completed In 2014

    26

    I probably shouldn't put such a strong focus on the act of finishing games, and should instead just focus on playing the games I want, for how long I want, but I'm addicted to the process, the drive, and the feeling of satisfaction that comes from adding another game to the list. Each year, I keep a running list of the games I complete, which includes a section for games I started but haven't finished, and another for games I need to play. More

    Hearthstone and Dragon Age hurt my efforts to finish as many games as I could in 2014.
