How to 1up! a Room

Check out this cool apartment Mario Bros. decor by Dennis and Judith, a couple of DIY’ers in love. The warp pipe is built from garbage cans and serves as a charging station for electronics, while the shelves feature those ? boxes, perfect for all the crap you want to hide. You can check out more pics over at Neatorama.

Just don't try and jump down it.

No controller needed!

The Breakfast of Champions!

The #1 Cereal on OA!

The #1 Cereal on OA!

We guess Kilowog’s sector of space is safer then the good ol’ 2814 (Earth, and then some!) because he’s branching out into the breakfast industry! Kilowog has created LANTERN LOOPS in honor of his beloved corps, and now you can enjoy them too!

As you can see Lantern Loops are full of the daily vitamins and minerals young Lanterns need to grow up big and strong, just like Hal Jordan! If your hungry for more green your in luck! Kilowog’s also sells Poozer Pops, Sinestro Bars, and Green Lantern cookies. (The Sinestro bars sound a little suspect.  Mint with a Lemony filling? Ewww.)

Michelle—E’ of DeviantArt created this custom box of cereal after noticing the similarity between Kilowog and Kellogg. Check out Michelle—E’s work at her DeviantArt page here.

Tony Stark and the Really Old Comic. Plus Captain America. A Little.

Among many things (like being kind of a dick) Daddy Stark was a comic book fan.

Take a look at this screen cap here via Superhero hype:

This is the case Tony Stark went through after the donut shop visit with Nick Fury.  In it you can see the newspaper clipping, a home movie of daddy, his journal…and whats that under the film canister?

I love easter eggs.

The comic is this issue of Captain America here:

So Tony’s father had the comic and Tony has the shield (old and busted, but still.)

The first dude and the rich dude.

BSG Meets Star Trek: TOS

Collecting props and costumes is a hobby many of us share, but it can be frustrating to find well made costumes.

Your options are usually:

Double Tanks, from "Battlestar Galactica"

A. Learn to sew, do all the research, (takes FOREVER!) buy the materials, put it all together, and then show off your goods.

B. Pay large amounts of money to have a replica made, which may or may not fit well, or have accurate materials.

So you want to skip all the bullshit and get straight to the costume?  I’m with you, now lets all go over to ANOVOS and order some frakkin’ cool BSG costumes.  ANOVOS has been around for a few years and has consistently brought the costuming world quality products.  They also have Star Trek costumes and a bunch of great badges/pins from BSG.  I’ve caught up with them at Comic-Con a few times to see their work, and it looks just like the real thing, which I’ve also seen.

Rank pins, from "Battlestar Galactica"

These guys are batshit-insane and have spent many MANY hours researching the right materials, getting the patterns right, even using the same company that the show used to re-create the costumes.  ANOVOS offers only a few runs of costumes at a time, sacrificing quantity over quality, they are fans offering other fans the products they themselves would buy.  I love these guys, and if you are looking for a badass costume next year go take a look.  You wont be sorry.

Zombie Dog!

Halloween is my favorite holiday, and creative costumes are really what it’s all about.

No more slutty nurses or cops, geeks are out there showing the world how its done and here is the best example of awesome costumes…for your dog.

Brainnnnnnns! Baconnnnnnn!

Aside

Xbox continues its limited edition series with this frakkin’ cool Star Wars Kinect bundle, complete with R2D2 console and C-3P0 controller. I like to game in style, and this will be the perfect way to let my Star Wars geek card show.

Take a look:

Star Wars Xbox 360 Bundle

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

This bundle is pretty cool, the only drawback is that if you already have a console and Kinect, it seems like a lot of cash to put out.  On the other hand, you could sell the old one and have R2D2 to game with, as well as all the accessories too.

Speaking of which:

The bundle includes the Xbox 360 console (R2 style,) Kinect sensor, wireless controller (C-3P0 style,) Wired Headset, Kinect Star Wars Game (Sweet!) and Kinect Adventures game (meh.)

R2D2's makeover

I suggest a new strategy, Artoo: let the Wookie win.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The release date hasn’t been announced yet, but rumors have it set between late January to early February.   You can pre-order it at pretty much all the usual game shops.

Just don’t try to pay with Republic Dataries.

Use the Force…and Kinect.

The Walking Dead will Live to Bite Another Day…..in Season 3

Run, Rick Run!

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All the drama surrounding TWD before its season 2 premiere ( remember the post Comic-Con firing of Frank Darabont?) hasn’t seemed to have affected the quality of the show as so many speculated.  Ratings have been off the charts and AMC has responded by renewing Dead for another season.

Will the rest of the season live up to expectations once we get to where Darabont left off?  Who knows, but you can bet your ass I will be on the couch Sunday nights to find out! via: AMC Walking Dead

Guys: Help your geek girl out with some hot new socks to keep her warm.

For science!

Doctor Who…What…Where…………When?!?!

If you are like us here at Geek This Week, you love Doctor Who.  The sonic screwdrivers, Daleks, TARDIS, companions, everything about Doctor Who brings us Wibbly Wobbly goosebumps.  That being said, have you ever tried to keep track of who knows who, and met who in what order with who?

Did you get that? No? Don’t worry, neither did I.

This brings me to a great piece of art that just landed in my inbox. A map of new Who series 1-6 will help you track the movement of your favorite characters as well as make the brain numbing River Song saga much more understandable.
