The LEGO Technic line allows master builders to create working robots and other creations with moving parts, but now a custom LEGO Ideas project is hoping to bring a cinematic robot to life with building blocks, just without all the complicated moving parts.
Johnny Five is the lovable, curious robot from the ’80s classic Short Circuit. And while technology would certainly allow for someone to build their own Johnny Five pretty easily today, it would be much easier if you were able to build a LEGO Johnny Five. That’s what master builder PepaQuin is hoping happens with his custom creation, and the good news is this project is already on its way to hopefully becoming an official set. Check out the Short Circuit LEGO below! Read More »

Today begins another round of Texas Frightmare Weekend, the annual horror convention that has been going for 11 years now. This year is a special one for horror fans, because it marks the 20th anniversary of Wes Craven‘s genre redefining Scream, which will be getting a special screening at the event. And with it comes a special new Mondo print paying tribute to the slasher.
But those aren’t the only Mondo goodies that Texas Frightmare attendees will be able to get their hands on. There will also be new prints for A Nightmare on Elm Street, Jaws, The Conjuring and White Zombie. Check out all of the Mondo Texas Frightmare prints below. Read More »
There are some very passionate pop culture fans out there in the world. Some of them like to show their love by amassing collectibles, others like to dress up as their favorite characters. But it takes a real dedicated crew to build a homemade version of an iconic cinematic vehicle. Plenty of people have created their own Back to the Future time machines or A-Team vans, but a group of friends decided they wanted to bring a vehicle from the world of Pixar Animation into the real world.
Some very talented people decided to create a working replica of the Pizza Planet Truck originally seen in Toy Story. Not only is their creation from 2011 impressive and as screen accurate as possible, but once they were done with it, they drove it to Pixar’s studios and impressed some of the very people who created the real Pizza Planet truck.

Even though Obi-Wan Kenobi finds blasters to be uncivilized compared to the more elegant weapon that is the lightsaber, for a short while, a blaster is all Rey has to defend herself when the First Order is in pursuit in Star Wars: The Force Awakens. Han Solo hands the weapon over to Rey, and even though it doesn’t fare well against the Kylo Ren’s Force powers and cross guard lightsaber, she’s still a pretty good shot with it, and the weapon certainly packs a decent punch.
Now if you’re looking to build your own version of Rey’s blaster, either for cosplay or for a little prop replica display in your office, a professional prop maker has assembled a homemade version of the gun that you can build yourself if you have the right tools.

I’ll be the first to admit that I sometimes have to bend over backwards to write about about tabletop games on a movie site, but then something like Cinema of Attractions arrives and makes the process blissfully easy. This new card game, from the creators of the popular movie connections game Cinelinx, offers a humorous simulation of the Hollywood experience, with players taking the role of filmmakers who must pitch a movie to a studio boss using only the elements available in their hand of cards.

When Jerry Maguire (Tom Cruise) has a bit of a “breakthrough, not a breakdown,” he wears his heart on his sleeve for the first time in a long time and writes “The Things We Think and Do Not Say: The Future of Our Business.” What does he get in return for penning the heartfelt mission statement? Fired. Instead of becoming the man he always wanted to be simply overnight, a selfless and caring man, he ends up losing sight of himself once again. While the mission statement initially doesn’t go according to plan, Maguire ultimately does become that man he envisioned by the end of writer-director Cameron Crowe‘s 1996 film.
Via voiceover, we only hear snippets from Maguire’s 25-page mission statement, but with the 20th anniversary of Jerry Maguire coming up, “The Things We Think and Do Not Say: The Future of Our Business” has been made available to read in its entirety. Read an excerpt from the Jerry Maguire mission statement below.

For me, there’s something that’s not only fun but almost relaxing about building a cool vehicle or building from various pop culture worlds out of LEGO pieces.

And if you’re a fan of Voltron, you’ll want to support this latest LEGO Ideas proposal.
A new custom Voltron LEGO set not only allows you to build the robot from LEGO bricks, but it allows you to assemble the robot from five individual LEGO lions, just like Voltron. Check out the Voltron LEGO set after the jump. Read More »
