Nerd News: Archer's Danger Zone, Aquaman: The Movie, stained glass Tolkien art and more

Vol. 4, Issue 37

Happy Thursday, everyone! TGG here. Normally I just stick to providing gaming news and hilarious commentary, but with the Chief out traveling the world some states, she's left me with (a bunch of links and) the awesome responsibility of running this thing ALL BY MYSELF! You know what that means: an all TMNT edition of Nerd News! Ha! J/K, everyone. She would fire me in a second. I hope I match the level of quality you've grown accustomed to in a Nerd News provider. Without further ado, your news:

  2. I totally thought it was a fan-made mash-up at first glance!

  3. Any time, Chief. Now, about that raise I've been meaning to bring up...

  4. The Nightmare Before Christmas video was pretty wonderful, as is Tom Hiddleston dancing.

    I'm still not sure how The Hobbit movies are going to stretch as long as they are (3 hours and two more movies? Sheesh), but I do love the trailer. Fingers crossed.

  5. That's the best way to end a blog post! :)

  6. I don't quite get how they'll stretch, either. But they'll be pretty, for sure.

  7. i would watch that version of aquaman- at least when i laugh at him it would be expected.

    we got our tim doyle '10' this week- it's going to go well with the 3 others we have. though i'm kinda wishing i had got the cyberman print.- doyles '10' and '11' didn't turn out as nice as i would have liked.

    and on a personal note- KINGDOM HEARTS ALL THE THINGS!!!

  8. What about the prints do you not like?

  9. with 11s print there is something wrong with the light that hits his cheekbone and chin on the side played out to the viewer. it makes him look at least 30 lbs heavier in the face then he actually is. i'm not a huge fan of the eyebrowless one but even i think it's a bad representation of him.
    with 10s- i have trouble placing it... something in the eyes that seems not quite right... david tennant has the great big eyes that as the doctor were really open to the world around him and (almost always) had a look of excitement. there are too closed and bored for my taste.
    the william hartnell and tom baker are far and away the best of this series so far.

  10. Thanks for this. I was really interested in seeing if I could acquire them both, but I might skip them now.
