During San Diego Comic-Con, Sideshow Collectibles revealed their new Masters of the Universe pieces which Deviant Artist Nebezial helped design! Check out the other concept sketches for Skeletor, as well as the prototypes from Sideshow. 🙂 Super cool to see art transform into a 3D figure.
Cosplay can be fun, it can be realistic, it can be mesmerizing, but it’s hard to pull off all three at the same time. Well, that’s what artist Frank Ippolito did with his Star Wars Rancor cosplay. What’s even more amazing about this not so little Rancor, is that Frank built it in less than a month! Frank was given special access to movie set props and clay figures to help him build this magical creature. See a fantastical video of how he was able to pull it off after the break:
San Diego Comic Con sure did bring out all the wonderful Cosplay – and we’ve featured them the past few days on Gabbing Geek. But now that the convention is over, that doesn’t mean we can’t still highlight some of the best – like this Thanos. I don’t know who created this amazing replica, but credit goes to this cosplayer for making an amazing costume. All the way down to the gigantic feet!
Our latest podcast looks back at the San Diego Comic Con with a fun twist! Give it a listen right this very second or jump after the break to find out more! So much geek news!
My brother came over the other day and introduced me to a phenomenon happening on the internet all over the world. And that’s the art of “TINY” cooking. That’s cooking actual edible meals, but basically 1/16 the size. These little edible treats range from tiny hot dogs, tiny pancakes, tiny tempura shrimp, to tiny cakes! TINY CAKES! There is so much UUUURRRRMMMAAAAGGGAAAWWWDD happening all at once, it’s hard to look away. Don’t believe me? Just watch:
Ryan and I are big fans of Gotham. (Tom Kelly should be, I keep trying to convince him to give it another shot.) If you’re somehow not familiar with the concept, season one starts with the murder of Bruce Wayne’s parents and continues from there instead of jumping ahead 20+ years when Bruce returns as Batman. They stick within the Batman mythos to a degree, but also put their own spin and things. It is a good ride. Even the non-geek Ms. Impossible loves it.
My biggest issue with the show is that the “killer of the week” aspects were always incredibly weak. The interweaving stories around Bruce’s investigation into his parents death, the inner workings of the GCPD and the mob wars between Carmine Falcone, Sal Maroni, Fish Mooney and stand out The Penguin where always the highlights of the show.
Given that, showrunner Bruno Heller announced at Comic-con that Gotham will be moving away from the weekly procedural format and focusing on serialized storytelling. Executive producer John Stephens says the decision was inspired by the success of serialized and binge watched shows like Game of Thrones. One of the bigger obstacles though is that Gotham will have almost twice as many episodes as something like Daredevil, so they need to create a lot of story.
Season Two of Gotham begins on Fox on September 21st.
San Diego Comic Con is is full swing – and that means COSPLAY! Hundreds and Hundreds of awesome cosplay. There is so much cosplay in fact, that we truly cannot cover it all – but that being said, IO9 had a wonderful library to share, and we picked out a few of our favorite. Check them all out after the break:
If you’re like me you watched some crappy bootleg over the weekend of the Suicide Squad footage shown at Comic-Con. Well now it is officially available after the break. What do you think?
I love The Walking Dead, but I’ve never gotten into much else written by Robert Kirkman besides Marvel Zombies. Not Invinicible, not Outcast, not Battle Pope, not The Astounding Wolf-Man…no wait, I have read that one, it is quite good. The others are on my long list of “to reads”…well, maybe not Battle Pope.
At Comic-Con this weekend we saw the first trailer for the upcoming Cinemax show based on Kirkman’s Outcast. I don’t know anything about it, but it stars Patrick Fugit (best known for his starring turn in Almost Famous) and the trailer is creepy as hell and definitely has my interest.
Check out the trailer after the break. And look for Outcast in 2016 on Cinemax.
