Nerd News: BttF art, Guardians of the Galaxy trailer, Toy Fair 2014 and more

Vol. 5, Issue 6

Happy Thursday, friends! It seems like news has been a bit light lately; might the Olympics be to blame? Regardless, something important did happen this week:

I’m super excited. I know very little about the Guardians of the Galaxy stories, but this looks so fun. I really hope this movie continues Marvel’s domination of the comic movie world.

In other movie news:

Here is a featurette (and there are two more at the link below) for The Zero Theorem, the new movie from Terry Gilliam:

An official blooper reel from The Lego Movie has been released, too:

Mondo released more images from Laurent Durieux's solo showcase, including another Back to the Future piece:

Love these Back to the Future posters by Andy Fairhurst.

Eleven is totally a Doc-style character.

In TV news:

Here are a few teasers:

Star Wars: Rebels

In webseries news:
  • Dr. Horrible 2 is still happening, and even has plot points and songs! I’ll believe it when I see it, folks.
  • Jillian Bell (Workaholics) is starring in a new Comedy Central webseries called Idiotsitter; here's a trailer. (Likely NSFW for language, implied drug and alcohol use.) (Thanks, Wes!)

In gaming news, from TGG:

I'd vacation in the Ewok village, even if they might eat me in my sleep.

In misc. news:

These Disney princess/villain illustrations by Joe Alexander are really neat.

And these Mucha-inspired princesses by Hannah Alexander are lovely. (Even if a few of them are a little too anime for my taste.)

In SCIENCE! and tech news:

And finally:

P.S.—I hope to be around next week to bring you more nerdy news, but if I'm not, blame Ragnarok.

  1. Damn, I forgot one bit of toy news to send you. Kid Robot has posted pics of their TMNT line and I love them so much! Nothing against Funko, but I've never really been a huge fan of the Pop! line and their re-action figures just look terrible. These TMNT Munny vinyls look great, however and I'm excited for the blind packs.

  2. Shucks, Kim, thank you! :D I love it too, haha. I can't really take credit for much other than coming up with the idea and OKing the placement. Megan really deserves the credit. However, I will take the compliments. <3

  3. I had the good fortune to play a Guardians of the Galaxy game with one of the designers of the most recent Marvel RPG. I played Groot. That is where the majority of my knowledge about Guardians of the Galaxy comes form. I will obviously be rooting (heh) for Groot to kick as much butt as possible.

  5. Ohhhhh Firefly figurines, why?! 'Not cute' is an understatement lol.
    I am certainly going to check out Grounded - I have a serious love affair for The Last of Us.
    I adore art nouveau style art, but I do prefer a more realistic approach. Definitely check out Megan Lara's art if you've never seen it - I adore it. I own many a print and tshirt of her design!
    I am heavily intrigued by The Order: 1886. Between the setting, story, and oh-so-pretty PS4 graphics I think that'll be on the playlist! We haven't quite nailed down when we're getting a PS4, but it'll be some point this year. . .

  7. Awweesome! I love how your sleeve is dedicated to sci-fi space vessels :D I definitely want to get the TARDIS one day with pretty flowers around it, but I'm getting my carousel horse tattoo first (tomorrow, actually!).

  8. Thank you! I'm very proud to wear it. :)

  9. Your TARDIS idea sounds awesome, Nina. And I can't wait to see your horse!

  10. It's his hair and his jacket and the whole Walkman thing in the Empire cover. He's just all around terrible.

    That's so cool about the show! I'm glad it worked out in the end. Happy accidents and all that.

  11. That's cool, Bill! Was the game fun?

  12. I love Megan Lara. I have a few shirts by her, too. :)


    And yeah, The Order looks really interesting. Not sure I'll be able to ever play it, as we're not in the market for a PS4 any time soon, but maybe eventually?
