The Force Awakens' Captain Phasma Already Has Her Own Hockey Jersey

They haven't figured out how to make one in chrome yet, but that aside, if your First Order of business is procuring new Star Wars merchandise early, you might want to Storm the gates on this one. It's the perfect garb with which to skate on Finn ice.

Now we just need a BB-8 hockey puck to go with it.

The Faux-Serenity from Alan Tudyk's Con Man Has a T-Shirt Now

Wednesday, August 26, 2015 at 2:13 pm

What's the only thing nerdier to wear than your Firefly T-shirt? How about a T-shirt based on a fake version of Firefly that exists only within a super-nerdy web-series that was crowd-funded by nerds like yourself?

Introducing...Spectrum!

From the upcoming web series about an actor who can't get away from the obsessive fans of his short-lived sci-fi series, comes merchandise for said series, including shirts that rather surprisingly do not come in brown, courtesy of WeLoveFine.

Just don't wear it on Fridays, as they tend to cancel out the cool factor...and everything else.

The Human Centipede Pot Pipe Will Get You Shitfaced

Tuesday, August 25, 2015 at 10:00 am

Experienced connoisseurs of marijuana know that the smoke is best when filtered through water. But through an entire digestive system?

If you thought Marky Mark and Ted were wusses to refuse to smoke from the penis bong in Ted 2, we're talking amateur hour compared to this Human Centipede pipe made by a fellow named Dustin Yunker. I'm not sure whether your mouth goes on the ass or the other mouth - I just know that you will look terrible either way. So make sure the high is worth it.

You Can't Buy a Realistic Aliens Pulse Rifle in a Toy Store, But You Can Make One

Thursday, August 20, 2015 at 10:59 am

I see NECA Toys constantly get asked on twitter why they don't make a 1:1 Aliens pulse rifle replica, and their answer is a legal one - they simply aren't allowed to, because it's too similar to a real gun.

However, DIY Prop Shop reveals that there is a toy gun you can buy in stores that will make a great base for a custom pulse rifle, with a few easy modifications.

(Please mod responsibly if you do - the paranoia about real-life mad gunmen is very tangible right now. Only point a pulse rifle at an actual xenomorph)

Japanese Airline Gives Star Wars' BB-8 His Own Plane

Wednesday, August 19, 2015 at 10:09 am

There is no fighting it. BB-8 has already been pre-anointed the most merchandisable character from The Force Awakens. (Kylo Ren lost the crown when Vanity Fair showed the pic of him unmasked and it was just Adam Driver making a dorky "angry" face.)

Just to prove it, Japan's ANA airlines, which previously unveiled plans for an R2-D2 plane, today showed off some upcoming BB-8 designs. Per CNN, the decoration won't be all cosmetic - Headrest covers, napkins and cups that will show up on eBay immediately will feature Star Wars designs, and inflight entertainment will feature the original and prequel trilogies. (I hate saying "all six" Star Wars movies, because everyone should know well and good that even you don't count the Ewok flicks, The Clone Wars was a theatrical animated movie that was most definitely Star Wars.)

Japan being Japan, I'm surprised we haven't seen BB-8 Ben Wa balls yet.


The Top 10 Triumphs of Tracey Walter (Bob the Goon is #6!)

Wednesday, August 19, 2015 at 5:00 am

With the smashing success of our recent list of cool Clint Howard credits came a suggestion from one of our regular readers, John Hanna: that we ought to give a similar treatment to character actor Tracey Walter. Honestly, we're a little bit embarrassed that we didn't think of this ourselves.

Who, after all, is more deserving of nerdy adulation than Walter, who has lent his keenly squinting, weathered face and weird lovability to movies from Rumble Fish and City Slickers to Erin Brockovich and Death to Smoochy, and TV from Amazing Stories to Reno 911! to Airwolf to Alf? Here are a few, a very few, of his nerdiest, most memorable roles:

Yes, everyone's happy about the D23 Star Wars announcements - but what if it goes bad? What if JJ Abrams doesn't do a good job, and indulges his worst instincts?

GIVEAWAY: Underoos, for Adults (Extended Deadline)

Friday, August 7, 2015 at 6:30 am

threepiounderoos.jpg

Underoos, those matching underpants/T-shirt combos featuring our favorite fictional heroes and villains, are back, and they're no longer just for kids. If you want your chest to look like that of the animated He-Man, or to sport a photo of Darth Vader, it can happen, in sizes up to XXL

My personal favorite Underoos as a kid were my Boba Fett ones, because I had no idea what the hell they were for the longest time. Then one day I'm playing with the figure, and I look at his chest, and I look at my shirt, and it just clicked. Considering how blatant most of the designs were, it was the one that took me months to figure out that felt the best in the end

Underoos have kindly offered us a set of any adult Underoos, in any size, but as usual, I'm gonna make you do something for it. In comments below, tell me the best/worst/weirdest experience you ever had in just your underwear . But there's a catch: IT MUST BE KEPT PG. This is still a company that makes childrens' underwear too, so don't freak them out with adult material. By all means be as weird as you like, however - nobody will check your story for accuracy. Enter no more than five times, and prizes can be shipped to US and Canada addresses only. I'll close this contest Aug. 15th Aug. 22nd at noon.
