To Infinity and Beyond - brilliant Buzz Lightyear art with an amazingly touching story!

Image
Here is another great piece of art from artist Dan LuVisi. A few days ago I shared his great art piece of Eve from Wall-E as a warrior. This time Dan has drawn an incredibly life-like picture of Buzz Lightyear from Toy Story.

The art piece is amazingly done but the story that Dan LuVisi has created to go with the piece is perhaps even better! You can see the piece below and read the story that goes with it below the art. The story gives a refreshing take on Buzz Lightyear that will have you looking at the Toy Story film in a whole new light. It is creative and extremely sad/touching and really adds to Buzz's character. Well done, Dan!

"As Buzz's final moment came before him, he glared into the black abyss, only capturing one last one thing: a promise he made his son:

"I will always protect and watch over you. To infinity and beyond."

Buzz was an all American hero. He worked for the Star Command Army and had been recently promoted to Staff Sgt, leading the young…

First promo for Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H.! [video]

Image
The Hulk is getting his own television show at the end of the summer and it will air on Disney XD. Marvel has just released the first promo video for the new animated series Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. In this video fans will get their first peek at the series and a small interview with the voice actor playing the Hulk, Fred Tatasciore.

According to this promo video the show will run like a reality TV show where the Hulks will have testimonials throughout the show. This is an odd premise for the show but we'll see how fans take to it when it airs. In Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. fans will see Hulk team up with his cousin She-Hulk, A-Bomb, Red Hulk and Skaar.

Hulk and the Agents of S.M.A.S.H. will air on Disney XD on Sundays at 11am EST starting August 11th.

The Death Star destroys the Enterprise in IGN's original short! [video]

Image
IGN has created an original short that pits the Death Star from the Star Wars franchise up against the Enterprise from Star Trek. The short is a lot of fun and has a documentary kind of feel to it.
"It's Star Trek vs. Star Wars in the skies over San Francisco!

Which would win in a battle, the Death Star or the Enterprise? Let us know in the comments!
After Star Trek IV, the crew of the Enterprise needed more whales, so they came back to San Francisco again, except this time it's an alternate universe where Reagan's Star Wars defense initiative from the 80's is coming to fruition as the Death Star nears completion (superlaser already fully operational). Star Wars is our military."
So if these two "ships" went at it, who did you think would come out on top?

Teaser trailer for Batman: Arkham Origins looks better than the recent movies! [video]

Image
Fans can get their first look at the upcoming prequel game to the Batman: Arkham series Batman: Arkham Origins! A short teaser trailer has been released and it shows us an incredible cinematic fight sequence between Batman and Deathstroke. To be honest, the ten seconds of fighting shown in this teaser is better than the whole Dark Knight series. I am so excited for this game.

The creators of the original Arkham games, RockSteady, did not return to create this game. They choose to hand the reins to WB Games Montréal who look to be handling things very well. The original Arkham series writer, Paul Dini (Batman: The Animated Series) also did not return. Writing this game is Dooma Wendschuch and Corey May who had input from Geoff Johns.

It is being reported that Batman: Arkham Origins will take place during Batman's second year of crime-fighting and that it will  be on Christmas Eve night. Since it is only Batman's second year of crime-fighting, the Gotham City Police are still un…

RBS' Cosplay Closet - Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine Blood Angel!

Image
Today's cosplay that we are pulling out of our closet, and it'd have to be a big closet, is damned impressive! The cosplay is from the Warhammer 40,000 video game and is of a Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine Blood Angel Tactical Sergeant, 7th company, 9th squad. That name sure is a mouthful but once you see it your jaw will drop open enough to fit it all in no problem. "I scratchbuilt this Warhammer 40,000 Space Marine Blood Angel Tactical Sergeant, 7th company, 9th squad, costume as a fan. Improved version.

About 400 hours in making, spread over 10 months. The current weight is 25 kg.
Hight: About 215 cm/7' (I am about 183 cm/6' without armor). (To be able to move around easier and be able to use my own hands, the size is a compromize between proper SM size and a normal human.)
Method: Pepakura (foam+hot glue) and some modifications to make it look more like the miniatures. And some aluminum rods, and screws and electronics.
Cost of materials: At the present about 2500…

Hitler Reacts to the Mandarin in Iron Man 3. [video]

Image
Hitler has once again called his troops in for a meeting and once again he is not happy. Hitler was rather excited to see The Mandarin in Iron Man 3 but when he finds out about the film's twist he becomes quite upset.

I will never get tired of these parody videos and this one is fantastic!

*Spoilers for Iron Man 3.

New Pacific Rim trailer will blow your mind! [video]

Image
The newest trailer for Guillermo Del Toro's Picific Rim has been released and it will blow your mind! If you thought the last trailer was something special then you are in for a real treat with this trailer. With a great look at the story and some truly hard hitting action sequences this is unarguably the best Pacific Rim trailer that has been released so far.
"When legions of monstrous creatures, known as Kaiju, started rising from the sea, a war began that would take millions of lives and consume humanity's resources for years on end. To combat the giant Kaiju, a special type of weapon was devised: massive robots, called Jaegers, which are controlled simultaneously by two pilots whose minds are locked in a neural bridge. But even the Jaegers are proving nearly defenseless in the face of the relentless Kaiju. On the verge of defeat, the forces defending mankind have no choice but to turn to two unlikely heroes—a washed up former pilot (Charlie Hunnam) and an untested tra…

X-Men variant cover "No Boys Allowed" shows the new team as young children.

Image
The X-Men comic recently re-launched with an all new premise that fans gave mixed reviews when it was first announced; an all female team! The new X-Men comic is being written by Brian Wood and features a team that consists of Storm, Rogue, Jubilee, Psylocke, Rachel Grey and Kitty Pryde. Artist Skottie Young has created a fun new variant cover for X-Men that features the new team as young kids in a girls only clubhouse titled "No Boys Allowed". The cover is absolutely brilliant and has a feel of Calvin and Hobbes to it.

First official trailer for Riddick is released! [video]

Image
The first full length trailer to Vin Diesel’s new film Riddick has finally been released! Vin Diesel has been working on this project for some time and was clearly very passionate about it. From the trailer it definitely feels like Diesel has brought back the suspenseful tone that Pitch Black had back in 2000. I for one am very excited for this film. "Prepare for the latest chapter of the groundbreaking saga that began with 2000's hit sci-fi film Pitch Black and 2004's The Chronicles of Riddick.

The infamous Riddick has been left for dead on a sun-scorched planet that appears to be lifeless. Soon, however, he finds himself fighting for survival against alien predators more lethal than any human he's encountered.

The only way off is for Riddick to activate an emergency beacon and alert mercenaries who rapidly descend to the planet in search of their bounty."

Riddick will hit theaters on September 6, 2013.

Wall-E's Eve becomes a badass warrior in this fantastic fan art!

Image
Artist Dan LuVisi has created a fantastic piece of fan art that features Eve from Disney and Pixar's Wall-E as a badass warrior. If you are curious how Eve could become a warrior then take a look at the story that Dan is developing for this series of art, which will feature Wall-E in the future as well.
"It only took two weeks after the arrival on Earth for the human's to realize they wanted no part in cleaning the trashed planet.

Wall-E (not-shown), the new found hero and leader of the human race, expressed that he would help rebuild the earth for the humans. As he was no longer a junk-bot, the Buy and Large bots turned Wall-E into a full fledged mech to help rebuild the cities.

Eve, Wall-E's love bot, helped him with this daunting task and over the years they created a utopia for the lazy and obese human beings. But as the humans became more comfortable, they soon turned the loving robots into mechanical slaves, putting the other Eve and Wall-E bots back to work.

Once Upon A Time in Wonderland promo trailer! [video]

Image
ABC has just released a promo trailer for the upcoming Once Upon A Time spinoff series Once Upton A Time: InWonderland. I admit that I had no clue what to expect when I heard this show was being made but after this trailer I think a lot of fans will definitely be interested in the show. Since this show will air during the off season for Once Upon A Time, you know fans of that show will surely be interested enough to see what Upton A Time: InWonderland is all about. It'll be fun to dive deeper into the world of Wonderland and see what this show can offer fans. Watch the trailer below and let me know what you think and if you'll be tuning in to watch this Fall.

Pokémon X and Pokémon Y gameplay trailer and map! [video]

Image
A new gameplay trailer for the upcoming Pokémon X and Pokémon Y has been released and in it we get to see a few of the newly announced Pokémon as well as some new features like riding a Pokémon or actually sitting on a bench!
"Get a look at the heroes of the new Pokémon adventure, as well as newly discovered and amazing Pokémon!" These new games, which will be Generation 6 for the Pokémon franchise, look incredible and to be honest, look like an entirely new franchise. I say this as a good thing since the new graphics and animations make the game look stunning. Enjoy the trailer below!

There has also been a map that has been released of the new Pokémon region, Kalos, which can be seen below. As reported, Kalos is based off of France which is clear from the map.

Hilarious Star Wars parody clip explains why Anakin didn't save his mother. [video]

Image
Some fans over at the p3pictures studio got together to create a fantastic parody scene that tries to answer one of Star Wars' unsolved questions; "Why didn't Anakin return to Tatooine to rescue his mom in the ten years between Episode One and Two?" The creators used actual film footage along with their own to create a scene with the Jedi Council in which Anakin attempts to convince the council to let him save his mom. The result will surely have you laughing. Enjoy!

New poster released for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire!

Image
A new poster for The Hunger Games: Catching Fire has just been released on the official instagram for The Hunger Games and it features Jennifer Lawrence as Katniss standing atop a mountain peak looking out into the horizon. The poster comes with the tagline, "The sun persists in rising, so I make myself stand."

The poster has an old fashioned look to it and I think it is a nice touch that the clouds behind Katniss form wings coming off of her back.

The Hunger Games: Catching Fire will be in theaters on November 22, 2013.

FOX debuts the trailer for its new show Sleepy Hollow. [video]

Image
Washington Irving's tale of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is about to get a modern update in the new FOX television show Sleepy Hollow. FOX has released a full length trailer (3:31) that features some great footage and gives fans a long look at what this show is going to be about. "ICHABOD CRANE (Tom Mison) is resurrected and pulled two and a half centuries through time to find that the world is on the brink of destruction and that he is humanity's last hope, forcing him to team up with a contemporary police officer (Nicole Beharie) to unravel a mystery that dates all the way back to the founding fathers." The interesting thing is that the show will not only bring in the legend itself but will have plenty of flash back sequences to the 1800s that will tie in important historical figures like General George Washington. From this trailer the show definitely seems interesting and may be worth checking out. The only worrisome part is that it is on FOX and FOX doesn't n…

Fan creates new Doctor Who intro that could be better than the actual show's! [video]

Image
Doctor Who is one of the most popular sci-fi shows out there right now and fans have been taking their own free time to create a wealth of amazing fan made content for others to enjoy. One fan, an undiscovered U.K. VFX artist that goes by 'Xandercom' has created his own Doctor Who intro sequence that quite possibly could be better than the actual sequence being used for the show. I am deeply impressed and really like his intro! Take a look and let me know what you think.

Stunning Doctor Who art piece - "Forgive Me Gallifrey".

Image
I came across this stunning piece of art and knew that I had to share it. Created by artist "meikiro", this piece features a scene from the sci-fi show Doctor Who. Meikiro has named this piece "Forgive Me Gallifrey" and she has done a marvelous job with it. In the photo you can see (who appears to be) the Eleventh Doctor (Matt Smith) sadly walking over to his TARDIS as the capitol city of Gallifrey is attacked and possibly destroyed.

Some fans are wondering why the Eleventh Doctor is pictured rather than the Eighth/Ninth Doctor (depending which actually ended The Last Great Time War). Regardless this is a stunning piece that brings up all kinds of emotions for fans of Doctor Who and the coloring is exceptionally done.

Princess Leia takes a moment to pose with R2-D2!

Image
Here's a great piece of fan art that features Princess Leia and R2-D2 from the Star Wars franchise. The piece was drawn out by Dawn McTeigue, and the colors were done by Sean Ellery. Both did a great job and the piece came out wonderfully. I wonder if R2 minds that Leia is sitting on him.
