Nerd News: Another Gaiman Who, Hansel and Gretel, Hobbit-bits and more

Vol. 3, Issue 36

Happy Thursday, friends! Let's jump right in, shall we?

In movie news:

A few trailers/clips:

Hansel and Gretel: Witch Hunters (So ridiculous; you know I'm excited.)

Looper

Taken 2

How great are these handmade wooden Star Wars figures? (Correct answer: Totally.)

(via)

That is waaaaay too much skin for Rogue to be showing. (And Gambit looks a little too much like Taylor Kitch.)

(via)

In TV news:

A few teasers:

Doctor Who


(via)

Fringe


(via)

The Walking Dead




(via)

More (awesome, natch) minimalism!

From TCC, in comics news:

I heart the old-school newspaper comic feel this Avengers illustration has.

(via)

These Japanese-style Avengers are awesome, too. I particularly like the branch antlers "Loki" has.

In SCIENCE! and tech news:

In gaming news (TGG was on vacation for most of this past week, but he sent me a few items before he left):

I found a couple of items as well:

How might the My Little Ponies look if they were human? Now you know.

(via)

These Disney/Barney's fashion re-imaginings are part cool, part creepy.

(via)

And finally, I need somewhere ├╝ber fancy to go to so that I can wear a dress like this. (I'd add it to my currently imaginary superhero gown collection.)

P.S.—Photobucket's been having major issues for the past couple of days, so if you see any wonky images, let me know? Thanks, friends!

  1. - Yes! You should totally see Kick-Ass. It, er, kicks ass.
    - That is an awful picture of Gambit. I didn't think it was possible to make him less sexy.
    - Speaking of less sexy.. Why do I get the feeling Bronies would find those human MLPs a turn-off?
    - Thanks for that Revolution pilot link! Gonna check that out when I get home from work.

    Another great news round-up, as usual! I always find cool stuff here that I've missed.

    1. The consensus seems to be that I definitely need to see it. So I shall. :)

      Did you watch the pilot? Thoughts? I haven't had a chance yet.

      Glad you enjoyed! :)

    1. I haven't watched it yet, no. Might give it a try this weekend?

      And yes! I feel like I need to have a Who rewatch sometime soon, too. I haven't visted with Nine in ages.

  3. Looking forward to seeing what Gaimen comes up with for his next trip down the rabbit hole. Honestly, I'd love to see the Doctor meet up with an Endless but you know...

    Also ponies as humans? There needs to be a Tumblr dedicated to it or something, there's just so many of them.
