Nick’s Friday Round-Up

The end is neigh! Oh, it begins with LEGOs, but then it evolves into Armageddon! A full-size LEGO terminator. [geekologie]

When the apocalypse comes, whether it be zombie, terminator, asteroid, or otherwise, you're gonna need a nice, safe place to play your xbox. You should invest in a personal gaming module. [gammasquad]

A guy rides a snowmobile off a cliff. Major points deducted for not sticking the landing. [geekologie]

One of the most perplexing questions in the history of nerddom is "How does Superman shave?". This question has actually been explained, but most people just don't know it. [gammasquad]

So unless you don't have a soul, then you absolutely love grumpy cat, which means you'll love this bit of news. Grumpy cat is getting her own movie. [geekosystem]

If you recall a couple round-ups back, I posted some TMNT twistie-tie art. Apparently it's a thing now, and there's a lot more of it. [geekologie]

BREAKING NEWS: A Dalek was found at the bottom of a pond in the UK! [blastr]

WE HAVE AN IRL LIGHT SABER! Well about as good as it's gonna get, at least for now. [blastr]

This really isn't news, but just a really beautiful game that I'm excited to play, called Rain. [gammasquad]

Nick’s Friday Round-Up

Some people have no idea how to decorate their living room. Well this guy did. He figured, "Why not turn it into a huge diorama of the battle of Hoth." "Honey! Do we have any cardboard?!?" [geekologie]

"Keep it, I got a Pit Bull now!" Well... for $13,000. Griff's original hoverboard prop from the movie is for sale on ebay. [geekologie]

So ya know how there's a kickstarter to fund an actual Death Star? Well now there's a kickstarter to fund an Xwing squadron to combat the Death Star. Folks, you can't make this stuff up. [geekosystem]

More diorama fun! A LEGO diorama of a bunch of scenes from Star Wars. Don't you wish you could shrink down and just walk through it at scale size? [blastr]

I don't know how you all feel about 3D, but for any Doctor Who fans, it looks as if the 50th Anniversary special will be in 3D. So grab those glasses and prepare yourselves. [blastr]

The original DeLorean from BTTF has been fully restored to it's amazing, time traveling, glory. I, for one, am very happy about this. [geekologie]

The Ghostbusters headquarters built out of LEGOs. How do they fit all those ghosts inside a containment unit THAT small? [gammasquad]

Here's a look at the cast of the original Star Trek series, if they were created by Pixar. [blastr]

Moar LEGO stuffs! It looks as if LEGO will officially be releasing an X-Wing Starfighter. [geekosystem]

Who's your favorite comic book villain? For me, it's the Joker, of course. I'm also a pretty big fan of Carnage. Here's a list of the top 25 comic book villains of all time. [dorkly]

If you've been itching to become a Jedi master, but lack the light saber fighting skills, well now you can take a class to learn how to fight with those pretty sabers of light. (rhyming was unintentional, but welcomed) [blastr]

Back in the day everybody wanted to get in on the videogame craze, including all kinds of food companies. Most were lame, but a few of them stood out and shined. Here are some actual GOOD video games that were based on junk food. [gammasquad]
