While using dinosaur DNA preserved inside prehistoric mosquitoes might be nothing more than a scientific pipe dream, having a way to smuggle it out of Jurassic Park isn’t quite so out of reach.
In the original Jurassic Park, the scheming computer expert Dennis Nedry (played by recurring Seinfeld star Wayne Knight) is given a faux shaving cream can that actually functions as a container for stolen dinosaur embryos. It’s one of the more iconic props from the Steven Spielberg film, and now you can finally have an official prop replica of the Jurassic Park shaving cream can. Read More »

Back in 1975, Steven Spielberg‘s surprise hit Jaws became the first summer blockbuster. The movie was not only a certified hit that people couldn’t get enough of, but it’s the quintessential summer movie. It’s the reason everyone associates the words “jaws” with the lethal sharks of the sea. And some of the credit for the pop culture phenomenon goes to the art of Roger Kastel, which you’ll be able to get your hands on today.
Mondo has announced that they are re-releasing the classic teaser poster featuring the great white shark charging toward the airbrushed silhouette of a swimming woman as a new screen print that has been completely recreated with the blessing of Roger Kastel himself. Read More »
Over two years ago, we featured a LEGO Ideas project that recreated the combining super robot Voltron in building block form. The project got enough votes to be considered by the official LEGO Group for production as an official playset, and fans will soon be able to get their hands on the robot formed by five smaller lion robots.
Voltron: Legendary Defender has proven to be a popular series from Netlfix and DreamWorks Animation, making the official Voltron LEGO set a no-brainer to produce for fans of the mecha animated series. But this Voltron LEGO set is based on the original 1984 animated series, making it a must-have for those nostalgic fans out there. Check out the Voltron LEGO set below. Read More »
In 1993, Warner Bros. released Demolition Man, a sci-fi action film that starred Sylvester Stallone as a present day cop who’s cryogenically frozen until being thawed out in the future to apprehend his greatest nemesis. It’s somehow terrible and wonderful at the same time.
It’s been 25 years since the film came out, and to celebrate, Warner Bros. is planning a Demolition Man Comic-Con pop-up at next month’s convention in San Diego. And if you’ve seen the movie, you probably know where this is going: yep, Taco Bell is going to be involved. Read More »

Iron Man 3 introduced us to an endless array of different kinds of armor that Tony Stark built for himself. Many of them have been turned into Hot Toys collectible figures over the years, but the latest installment of a new Iron Man armor collectible is actually inspired by Iron Man 2.
Hot Toys has unveiled a summer convention exclusive of the sixth scale Neon Tech Iron Man Mark IV armor. That’s probably not familiar to Marvel fans simply because it’s a suit that doesn’t exist in the movies. But as you can see in the photo above, it might as well be a Marvel and Disney crossover since Iron Man looks like he’s entered the grid from TRON Legacy. Read More »
Last week we got a peek at the next installment in the Rocky franchise in the form of the trailer for the sequel spin-off Creed II. Sylvester Stallone is back as Rocky Balboa, but he’s still outside of the ring, mentoring Adonis Creed (Michael B. Jordan), the son of the late Apollo Creed. But let’s not forget what brought us here, starting all the way back in 1976.
Rocky is the Best Picture winning sports drama that helped defined what made a movie like this great. Artist JC Richard has created a magnificent print paying tribute to Rocky showing the iconic Philadelphia boxer out on one of his training runs. The wide shot of the docks makes for a beautiful background as Rocky runs towards victory. Read More »
