You’ve gotta check out this extremely cool DC Bombshell Hawkgirl cosplay byGalacticat. I’m a big fan of the 1940s pin-up-inspired DC Bombshell heroines. The whole thing started as statuettes, which eventually spawned a fun comic series. It’s one of the cooler and more entertaining things DC has come up with in recent years, and Galacticat’s cosplay creation of this Hawkgirl is stunning. Here’s what she had to say about it:
"I love the DC Bombshells line created by Ant Lucia, and all of the designs are fantastic - but there was no question in my mind which one I had to cosplay: Hawkgirl! She's one of my favorite DC characters and I absolutely love her design - especially the creative take on her wings! The jetpack build was a collaboration between my boyfriend and , and it's made from all sorts of materials: PVC pipes, fiberglass, 3D printed pieces, foam, Worbla, and more! I completed the costume for C2E2 2015 and finally got to do a photoshoot a couple months ago. Since her poster is an ad for Thanagar Tree-Top Tours, I was determined to shoot in the woods with a WWII Jeep - and a friend of mine helped make it happen! The photos were taken by CGC Creative."
I’m sure you all remember the image from Iron Man 3 of Tony Stark's Iron Man armor chillin’ on his couch. Well, that exact scene is getting its own exciting action figure, complete with the couch!
The figure and couch playset comes from Comicave studios and it will be available exclusively at San Diego Comic-Con 2016. Here are the details for the action figure:
It is constructed out of 75% diecast metal, will have over 20 points of articulation, will stand about 6″ tall and have LED light up features in the chest and eyes. The Mark 42 Armor will include multiple interchangeable pieces, such as hands and thruster effects pieces. It’s priced at $100.
As for the couch, well…it’s a 1/12 scale couch that comes in an IKEA-inspired box. This is definitely one of the most amusing action figure accessories I’ve seen in awhile.
There’s currently no pricing or post-convention release information that has been revealed.
Dr. Martens has announced that they are launching a new line of boots inspired by the characters from the 1987 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon series (not that shitty film franchise that just keeps getting worse).
The boots come in four styles and they are available in sizes for men, woman, and kids. If you're a hardcore Ninja Turtle fan, and you want to boldly rock your fandom, these are for you!
Below you'll find some additional photos with descriptions and a promo video.
LEONARDO Leonardo stands for respect, courage and Kick ass moves. His boot has the phrase ‘Cowabunga!’ and a glow-in- the-dark slime splatters across the toe.
DONATELLO stands for Skate, sleep and eating. His boot features two different expressions on each toe, a purple removable face mask and cartoon turtle shell patterning up the side.
RAPHAEL stands for being lean, mean and green. His boot has glow-in-the-dark ooze dripping down on the sides, and an over-sized, textured turtle shell pattern on the toe.
MICHAELANGELO stands for double pepperoni. His boot has his face on the toe all four turtles on the sides, mixed in with pizzas and catchphrases from the show.
If you’re as pumped up for director F. Gary Gray’s Fast 8 as much as I am, you’re gonna want to check out these two new featurettes for the film. The first is called “Zombie Cars” and it features horde of cars driving off of a parking structure and landing on a bunch of other cars on the street. J.D. Schwalm, Special Effects Supervisor on the film explains:
"We have seven cars falling from the parking structure, and each one of them is aiming at a motorcade here. We have to pull these cars at an exact speed, and we're doing that using the winch on the crane. Each car comes out in succession to land on the vehicles on the road here. Obviously, there's no one in them because they're about to be impaled by 3000-pound lawn darts."
The second video gives us a 15 minute tour of the set by Vehicle Coordinator Dennis McCarthy. He shows off all of the cars being used in the film, which adds up to about $17 million worth in cars.
Fast 8 is in its second week of production and it’s expected to hit US theaters on April 14, 2017.
Damn! You’ve gotta check out this insanely awesome custom-made “First Age” Sauron leather armor inspired by The Lord of the Rings. It was created by Samuel Lee from Prince Armory and the craftsmanship is incredible. When talking about his design, the creator said:
Instead of the typical medieval fantasy spinoff (its already that anyway), this design is more focused on a scenario of what might Sauron’s armor looked like in the first age (Far before the well known 3rd age featured in the Lord of the Rings films). I won’t get into the volume of lore left behind by Tolkien but one thing worth noting is that Sauron himself was a capable artisan and armor smith. Perhaps he would feel at home in this armor.
Hell yeah! I think Lee completely nailed the look and it’s a suit of armor I think even Weta would be excited about.
The blacksmiths of Baltimore Knife have outdone themselves with their latest creation from Man at Arms. They have forged the classic sword from Voltron and made it in a way in which the blade is enveloped by blazing fire. It may be dangerous, but it’s so freakin’ cool! At the end of the video they even have Voltron test it out! Unfortunately, the flames don’t do very well when the sword is in full swinging motion.
Artist Rob Csiki is the creative mind behind the creation of this fan-made poster for Marvel’s upcoming Doctor Strange film. It features Benedict Cumberbatch’s version of the character conjuring up a little magic. The artist had this to say in a statement:
Ever since I was a kid I have always been a fan of Doctor Strange and his inter-dimensional exploits as the sorcerer supreme! I wanted to portray Stephen in his sanctum sanctorum, travelling through weird dimensional realities and hidden dangers. Time to "open your mind!"
You can see some previously released geek art by Chiki for Ant-Man and Hellboy IIIhere and here.

The first trailer has been released for the upcoming Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me. The film's story will focus on the career of Tupac and take us on a journey all the way to the fatal drive-by shooting that occurred in Las Vegas in 1996.
The trailer offers us an intense look at the film and we get our first look at newcomer Demetrius Shipp, Jr.asTupac Shakur — he sure does have an uncanny resemblance to the musician. Judging from this minute-long teaser, the movie looks like it could be good. I hope it is and I'm looking forward to seeing more.
The film was directed by directed by Benny Boom and also stars Danai Gurira as Afeni Shakur, Jamal Woolardas The Notorious B.I.G., Stefon Washington as Puff Daddy, Kat Graham asJada Pinkett, Dominic L. Santana as Suge Knight, Money-B as himself, Azad Arnaud as Daz Dillinger, Jarrett Ellis as Snoop Dogg, Harold House Moore as Dr. Dre, and more.
All Eyez on Me opens in theaters on November 11, 2016.
We've posted some great Red Sonja cosplay in the past, but this series of photos featuring cosplayer Jinglebooboo all decked out as the deadly woman warrior are absolutely beautiful. This is one of the most amazing Red Sonja cosplays I've seen and it's based on the WeNeals.
A remake of the 1937 film A Star is Born has been in development since 2011. Clint Eastwood and Beyonce were originally attached to the project. Over the years it has obviously gone through several changes.
Bradley Cooper is now set to direct and star in the film, and according to THR, Lady Gaga is in talks to take on the lead role. If she lands the part this will be her first starring role in a feature film.
The film has already been remade twice — in 1954 and in 1976. The story "centers on a movie star who helps an aspiring young actress find fame, even as age and alcoholism send his own career into a downward spiral."
Gaga has emerged as a very talented actress who really impressed in American Horror Story: Hotel. She's also previously appeared in films such as Sin City: A Dame to Kill For, Machete Kills, and Muppets Most Wanted. Those were smaller type roles, though.
According to the report, Gaga auditioned for the Warner Bros. film and impressed the executives. This seems like a perfect project for the actress so it would be cool if she actually landed the role. We'll just have to wait and see what happens.
