Shirt of the Day: Malvin and Cobbes

Oh God.

Clearly, after last week’s challenge, Ript is determined to end me.

At least when I’m homeless I’ll have the shiniest collection of makeshift blankets ever.

You’ll find it today only at Ript. May they have mercy on your wallet.

Shirt of the Day: Big, Goddamn 8-bit Heroes

Shit, Ript. Let’s make a deal. You stop making insanely awesome t-shirts and I’ll make sure I can feed myself and my family for a few days.

No? No good?

OK – then you should probably make more of these insane pop-culture mash-ups quick before I use up all the cash I’m going to get selling my kidney on the black market.

You know the deal folks – 24 hours. Click here. You buy.

By the Power of Grayskull – I Have the Sunflower (Seed…Cause I’m a Hamster)!

What’s that? You’re a Masters of the Universe nerd who prefers to showcase the fact that you love ‘roided out swordsmen (whose names all sound like something you’d find in bad gay porn) in an ironic fashion?

Well, my confused friend, Ript has the shirt for you…

You know the drill. It’s up for 24 hours. Get it or risk being called Orko at your next MotU gathering.

My Little Alien: Facehuggers are Magic

I don’t know how Ript Apparel got a Malkovich-type door into my subconcious; but there’s really no other explanation for why this exists:

Toy Fair: LEGO Iron Man 3 Spoiler Alert!

imlego2So I saw these earlier today via Bleeding Cool; but it wasn’t until Bricken over at io9 picked up the story that I realized the leaked set pics didn’t just showcase the most ridiculous LEGO set to ever feature the “Ultimate Showdown” moniker (because, everyone knows, there’s nothing more “Ultimate” than a suped-up ATV); we were looking at full-blown legitimate spoilers for Iron Man 3.

Remember this gem that kicked things off on our fair blog?

Now take a look at the pic of the figures we get with the Malibu Mansion Attack (and try not to get distracted by the adorable Dummy fig in LEGO form). See Pepper?

MalibuSetPieces

Good. Now take a look at the box art. See Pepper?

No? Let me help you out there…

Boom.

Transformers Geeks Assault Hasbro, Take Over Production

Really, it’s the only explanation for the news of the Target Exclusive that dropped earlier today. Y’see; back in 87 we had Transformers characters that looked like this:

Children of the early 90s! Fear me!

Children of the late 80s! Fear me! For I am your neon doom!

Except their toys didn’t look like that at all, they looked like pink and yellow atrocities like this:

Abominus struck fear into his enemies by his shocking lack of fashion sense.

Abominus struck fear into his enemies with his shocking lack of fashion sense.

Abominus was the combined form of the Terrorcons, a team of dragons and monsters that couldn’t even be controlled by their own faction. In concept, they were pretty cool. In execution…you know who loves hot pink toys that transform into sentient robotic monsters? If you raised your hand and said that one kid in middle school Science who liked to make the frogs “dance” when you dissected them, you’d be right. So how in the Allspark is THIS getting made:

Target Abom

Coming this Fall exclusively to Target, with fairly accurate homage colors. I’m not going to question it; but I sure will buy the hell out of it.

Axe Cop Invades Your Toy Shelf

File this under things I never expected to happen, but am supremely glad that they are (rereads that slowly to himself, outloud, backwards, trying to parse meaning…gives up): Axe Cop is getting official toys!

Your shelf can't handle this much awesome

Your shelf can’t handle this much awesome

Kick-ass versions of Axey, Wexter, Baby Man, Avocado Soldier, and…Dr. Doo Doo? look to make up the first wave. Even better, we’re getting Avocado Soldier and Wexter plushies! I know that I will sleep better at night knowing my daughter is cuddling up to a T-Rex with rail-gun arms and sunglasses (and she will too).

Serenity Now!

FireflyMagWhedon apparently dropped this image on his Facebook page without comment last night. Proving, once again, that he knows better than anyone else how to bait nerds until they’re foaming at the mouth.

“Making the most of your bunk” indeed.
