With Star Wars Battlefront on the shelves as another way of fueling the hype train on track to Star Wars: The Force Awakens, fans have been doing their fair share of blasting both Rebels and Imperials in the video game world. But one fan wanted to do some blasting with the weight of LEGO in his hands.
Flickr user and Star Wars fan Nick Jensen has recreated a life-size version of the E-11 blaster rifle, which fans will know as the blaster carried by Stormtroopers in the original Star Wars trilogy. They occasionally use the gun to hit their targets, but mostly it’s just to make a lot of noise and flashing red lights. But this looks like quite the deadly piece of LEGO weaponry. Read More »

If there’s one thing to be thankful for this weekend besides friends, family and that new Star Wars: The Force Awakens extended TV spot that arrived yesterday, it’s the potential return of one of the most wonderful drinks from the late 80s and early 90s.
Even for kids who were inexplicably not fans of Ghostbusters in the 90s, the Hi-C juice flavor Ecto-Cooler was a staple in lunchboxes and sleepovers, featuring Slimer on the box as the drink’s mascot. It was all the rage from when The Real Ghostbusters series started and lasted well past the cancellation of the animated series. But it’s been gone for years. However, there might be hope of a comeback as Coca-Cola just recently re-registered the trademark for Ecto-Cooler back in September. Read More »

One of the most revered cartoons for children of the ’90s is Rugrats. The Nickelodeon animated series followed the antics of a group of babies who could talk to each other when their parents weren’t around, and they constantly got into mischief and adventures. The show has quite the fair share of adult fans who have taken to introducing the series to their own kids now. But one storyboard artist from the show has a bit of a gripe about how some fans are taking liberties with the beloved characters, and has spoken up with some special artwork in tow. Read More »

If you’re anxious to see how John Boyega fares as one of the new heroes in Star Wars: The Force Awakens, you might want to check out the film that really got us to pay close attention to the young British actor: Attack the Block.

And now Matt Taylor has paid tribute to the movie with an awesome Attack the Block poster that is now available for purchase. Check it out below! Read More »
We’ve featured a few of UK-based design studio Dorothy‘s movie-inspired screenprints in past editions of “Cool Stuff,” including their vintage-style LA street map featuring the names of over 900 movies, their beautiful golden age, modern day and horror star charts that feature hundreds of movies and actors graphed out in a star map. Those prints were very popular and this year Dorothy have returned with a vibrant new print titled “The Colour of Cinema” which is a “glorious ‘technicolor’ celebration of over 400 films which mention a color in their title” presented in a Color Wheel range.

With recent news of a Jurassic World trilogy in the works to follow the success of the sequel/reboot this past summer, the popularity of the Jurassic Park franchise might be bigger than it’s ever been. There’s plenty of dinosaur action in our future from Universal Pictures.
Now two fans have taken their love of the franchise to an extreme level with a massive LEGO creation that takes all four of the Jurassic Park movies spanning 22 years and combines them into one giant set, not unlike the LEGO Jurassic World video game that was released this year in conjunction with the movie. Check it out! Read More »
