Tenacious Toys

Apocalypse ponies! Batmobile stroller! The ferocious frilled shark! Choosing your own adventure on Twitter!

These and 16 more items you may have missed over the weekend are here to start your morning out right.

1. Friendship Is Doomsday.

The toy company that brought you Pony Cthulhu is now crowdfunding the Four Horsies of the ‘Pocalypse. This is your mane event…but which one is Ric Flair?

2. Organic Webshooter.

Were you bummed to hear about that French hospital painting over the mural of Wonder Woman getting gang-banged? Maybe you should get sick in South Korea instead, where a sculpture of Spider-Man pitching a spider-tent in his pants adorns one of their healthcare facilities. And this somehow still makes more sense than Amazing Spider-Man 2.

3. Crook-ie Monster?

In a new one-hour special, Cookie Monster must prove he’s no Cookie Crook when he’s accused of stealing cookie-themed paintings. Rachel Dratch will also chip in.

4. Twitterpated.

I’m not sure quite how this Twitter version of “Choose Your Own Adventure” work, but I’ll bet it’s still less popular than the previous top Twitter game, “Choose Your Own Illiterate Debate With a Random Racist.”

5. Let It Come, Let It Cum…

A little Frozen fan fiction commands you to listen…or Elsa!

6. Guerreros Get Their Goat.

The Mountain Goats preview their album all about pro-wrestling with a tune about…Chavo Guerrero? The elder one, not the guy who rode on a wooden horse and got beaten by Hornswoggle every week. An unexpected choice, but a “Classic” one.

7. Dead on Arrival.

The trailer for the Dead Rising movie came out, and there might be a good reason you missed it. When Rob Riggle is the best thing in the trailer, and you’ve seen Uwe Boll movies that made better use of their low budgets, it is hard to be optimistic.

8. Make You Humble.

Universal Studios Japan opened an Attack on Titan exhibit called “The Real.” Good to know it’s not “The Jabroni.”

9. Splat Man and Blobbin’.

Con Air‘s Simon West is now signed on to re-remake The Blob as a CG monster, replacing Rob Zombie, who would presumably just have cast Sid Haig with his shirt off.

10. Beagle Boys.

Ninja Sex Party delivers a surprisingly sincere cover of “The Last Unicorn.”

11. Archer and Archer.

On the one hand, a guy who’s an expert at the bow, having studied more ancient battle techniques…

…and on the other, Archer.

12. Sorry, Russia, a “Cyborg” Has to Be Part Organic.

Russia’s so-called “Militray Cyborg Biker” looks like a pull-back-and-go movie tie-in toy writ larger for that new, terrible-looking Terminator flick.

13. Bad Remakes Make Me Wanna Jet, Son.

There’s talk of a new Jetsons movie. I hear Tiffany comes cheap these days.

14. Tumbling Toddler.

Strollers in crowds are annoying enough. But with a Batmobile stroller, this kid is NEVER gonna choose to walk on his own, and your feet are in mortal danger.

15. Quake up and See the Music.

Quake on an oscilloscope, somehow.

16. Brazil, Nuts.

Over the top, insane, very NSFW trailer for a new Brazilian anthology horror film, The Black Fables. I have nothing else to add.

17. MOTTO PANUKEIKU!

100 Japanese maids make a pancake. Why not?

18. Giddy Gumball.

What if The Amazing World of Gumball were an anime?

19. Attention Coneheads!

Parks & Recreation‘s “Cones of Dunshire” game could be a reality, if you help. After all, nobody wants to hone their cone alone.

20. Frills Aren’t Usually Intimidating…BUT…

As always, these items were compiled with the help of Kyle LeClair.
