We’re champions of plenty of projects that pop up over at the LEGO Ideas website. For those who don’t know, it’s a community of LEGO builders who create custom sets that they hope will be supported by community and eventually make it in front of the official LEGO board for approval to become a legitimate set sold in stores. A set needs 10,000 votes to make it in front of the board, but that’s no guarantee of production since the company still has to determine whether they can get the rights to make the set and if there’s even a viable market for it to be sold in.
Thankfully, it has been determined that an Adventure Time LEGO set is a good idea, and it will be put into production. That’s pretty mathematical. Check out the set below! Read More »

Hit the jump to see the first print in this upcoming partnership.

Richard Linklater‘s newest film, Everybody Wants Some, recently premiered at the ongoing South by Southwest, and Linklater fans should be pleased to learn the spiritual sequel to Dazed and Confused is already a hit with critics. Our own Jacob Hall called Everybody Wants Some “Linklater’s funniest film in years,” and most reviews have echoed that sentiment.
If you’re a fan of the director and you’re in Austin, then this must be a good week for you, because, in addition to the debut of the filmmaker’s latest work, Mondo is currently celebrating his filmography with a show called “No Longer/Not Yet.”
Check out the posters below.

Back in December, we featured a new RoboCop print from Matt Ferguson that was made available by Grey Matter Art. Now another piece of work honoring Paul Verhoeven’s sci-fi action classic is available, this time from Gabz (who recently delivered a stellar Star Wars trilogy print that is situated on my wall). It’s bloody, fiery and just fantastic.

Even though it wasn’t a big hit back in 1999, the animated adventure The Iron Giant has become a favorite among cinephiles. Brad Bird (The Incredibles, Tomorrowland) directed the sci-fi family film, proving that he was going to be a force to be reckoned with in the animation world, and now we can finally get a closer look at how the film was made.
The Art of The Iron Giant book is coming to shelves this August, and you can get a sneak preview of some of the fantastic images that were created during the development of the Warner Bros. Pictures film. Read More »
The world of movies is chock full of cool devices, tools, weapons and more that sadly just aren’t real. Thankfully, we can buy replicas of some of our favorite sci-fi props. But if you’re more of a tech savvy, hands-on kind of fan, maybe you’d just rather make your own. And if you’ve always wanted a Ghostbusters ghost trap of your own, we have just the video for you.
The folks over at Tested have revealed a video that shows how to make a working Ghostbusters ghost trap, complete with lights, smoke, sounds and a working pedal that opens the trap to catch those pesky spooks and spectres. What’s cool is that it was created almost entirely with parts made in a 3D printer. Find out how it’s done after the jump. Read More »
Over five years ago we featured a small batch of posters in a series called The Ones That Got Away. In the poster series, artist Fernando Reza and his Fro Design Company label created some awesome posters for movies that never came to be. Whether it’s because they got stuck in development hell or lost funding at the last minute, these movies simply never became a reality. The first series included posters for the likes of Stanley Kubrick’s Napoleon and Orson Welles’ Don Quixote, and now a second series has been unveiled and made available for purchase.
See which posters make up The Ones That Got Away Volume 2 after the jump. Read More »
According to Back to the Future Part II, we were supposed to have hoverboards and flying cars by last year. The deadline has come and gone, and while we certainly got a real working hoverboard, flying cars still remain a challenge. The good news is that the next iconic milestone year that has flying cars in the sci-fi realm is 2019, from Ridley Scott’s Blade Runner, so we’ve got three another three years to make it happen.
In the meantime, Ford is looking to a future that has driverless cars, which seems to be the next frontier in automobile technology instead of flying cars. And along with that comes a perfectly American innovative idea from Ford Motor Company: a windshield that turns into a movie screen so you can watch Mad Max: Fury Road while speeding down the highway at 75 miles per hour, or while sitting stuck in bumper to bumper traffic.
Get the details on the windshield movie screen after the jump. Read More »
