Undoubtedly the most important thing to Peter Jason Quill is the recorded tape called Awesome Mix Vol. 1, a mixtape of music given to him by his mother on her deathbed. The tape is so important to him that he takes on a prison guard in The Kyln because he won’t just put it away with the rest of his personal effects. Then when he and the rest of the Guardians of the Galaxy escape from the prison, he hangs back to make sure he can get it back.
Now this moment is immortalized (albeit with some modifications) in a new Guardians of the Galaxy print by the artist Florey. The outstanding piece of work features Star-Lord blasting through space with his walkman in one hand and the orb that contains an Infinity Stone in the other. But it also features some elements you won’t find in that scene in question. check it out below. Read More »
Even though there have been plenty of gadgets from film and television that have become realities in our time, most sci-fi creations end up just being mere dreams. This is especially true when it comes to various vehicles we’ve seen from the likes of Star Wars and other iconic franchises. But today, one iconic vehicle from a galaxy far, far away has become a reality…sort of.
In Return of the Jedi, one of the best sequences is the speeder bike chase that happens on the forest moon of Endor. Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia must evade some Scout Troopers so as not to alert the Empire to the presence of Rebels on the surface trying to shut down the shield generator of the second Death Star. The speeder bike is an awesome vehicle, but as a hovering, fast piece of machinery, it’s not exactly easy to create in the real world. But the folks at Vintage Works have done the best they can by turning a motorcycle into a Speeder Bike, and you can see it in action after the jump. Read More »
I haven’t been shy about my love for Fantasy Flight Games‘ line of Star Wars board games, which take one of the world’s most popular movie franchises and brings them to the table in unique, compelling, and generally beautiful ways. I have heartily recommended the X-Wing Miniatures Game, Star Wars: Armada, and Star Wars: Imperial Assault in the past. More recently, I reviewed Star Wars: Rebellion, which is easily the greatest Star Wars board game ever designed.
Straight from Gen Con (North America’s largest tabletop gaming convention), FFG has announced the latest additions to their Star Wars game library and your wallet may very well start to cry.

Not only does this year mark the 35th anniversary of Escape form New York, but it also marks the 30th anniversary of one of John Carpenter‘s other beloved films starring Kurt Russell. Yes, it’s been 30 years since Big Trouble in Little China hit theaters, and if you happen to be in Brooklyn, New York today, August 4, then you can celebrate with a special anniversary screening and a very special print of the iconic poster by beloved artist Drew Struzan.

In case you didn’t realize this year marks the 35th anniversary of Escape from New York, the classic sci-fi action flick from that was released all the way back in 1981. Even though the exact anniversary came and went last month on July 10th, a celebration seems appropriate since director John Carpenter just won a lawsuit against writer Luc Besson for plagiarizing the film while writing an eerily similar sci-fi acion movie called Lockout. And what better way to celebrate than with a new collectible print.
Grey Matter Art has teamed with artist Matt Ferguson for a new, officially licensed Escape from New York print that would be the perfect way to honor the film’s 35th anniversary. The artwork features Kurt Russell looking like a badass as Snake Plissken, and the style of the print is very much in the vein of movie posters from the 1980s. Check it out! Read More »
