Fans of LEGO and The Avengers will be thrilled to see this brilliant mash-up of the Marvel superheroes with their minifig avatars. The poster features minifig versions of Iron Man, Thor, The Hulk, Captain America, Hawkeye, Black Widow and Nick Fury.
I think some people choose to give their bands really weird names so that it’ll pop out and make an impression on people. I mean, aside from fancy graphics, a neat logo, and a cool band name, what else can bands put on posters to grab a someone’s attention?
Remember that Star Wars Identities museum exhibit that’s coming to Canada? Well, they’ve just released some great promotional posters. The exhibit is set to open April 19th in Montreal, Canada. It’s too bad that I now live on the other side of the world now – I actually used to live in Montreal.
If there’s one thing that many superheroes and villains seem to have in common is that they inevitably find themselves rappelling scaling up the side of a building for one reason or another. Artist Nicholas Hyde (aka “Harshness“) made note of this unusual behavioral pattern, and has documented it for us with this cool series of illustrations.
I love vintage arcade games. I love the art on the cabinets, I love the sound they make and I love the games. Probably because I grew up with them. There’s nothing quite like those great big buttons and that stiff joystick… Okay, that just sounds strange.
… and of the Undead Slayer. Because being born in the year of the dumbest monster is quite depressing. Invented by James F. Wright and Joshua G. Eckert, the Geek Zodiac takes its cue from the Chinese Zodiac, but instead of animals the two assigned science fiction and fantasy archetypes to the 12-year cycle.
These pieces of minimalist Mario and Link Art are very unique – they depict our favorite Nintendos in a startling fashion by focusing on their torsos. These two characters surely have the most heroic midsections of them all, but I think that Mario’s pot belly may have been treated with a bit of airbrushing in that photo.
Wayne Dorrington decided that it was time that the story of Star Wars Episode V: The Empire Strikes Back, needed to be retold using only icons – or as he calls it “Iconoscope.” I have to say that it’s pretty funny, especially when you’ve seen Empire as many times as I have.
QR codes are meant to be created digitally, but that didn’t stop Lauren Manning and Camile Wei-Hsin Lin from creating their own handmade versions, which surprisingly still scan just fine. Most of these were created using found objects, which makes them even more interesting.
Are you a serious Apple fanboy or fangirl? Here’s a poster that you’re probably going to want to hang on your wall. Entitled The Insanely Great History of Apple, it chronicles the past 30 years of technology released by Apple.
This 18″x24″ wall poster includes some of the best and worst moments in the history of Apple, ranging from the original Apple II to the Mac to the systems of Apple’s “dark” period, like the Quadras, Performas, eMate 300 and the hideous first-gen iBook.
If you’re a fan of the original Star Wars trilogy like me, then you’ll appreciate Russell Walks‘ limited-edition Star Wars poster, which is officially licensed by Lucasfilm. It features Darth Vader’s silhouette, and since Star Wars is all about Darth Vader, it should make you and your walls pretty happy.
Freaking News ran a Star Wars movie poster Photoshop contest earlier this year. The results are in and some of these are pretty unusual. One of the most distinctive is a sort of mashup between Darth Vader and The Dark Knight.
With 15 games and a handful of spin-offs – and undoubtedly more to come – the Zelda universe has acquired its share of fictional plants, animals and floating eyeball things. Lots of them, as shown in this piece by Jude Buffum.
Planning on heading to London any time soon? There’s no better way to get around besides the Underground (aka the “Tube”). Of course, you’ll need a map, right? Well geeks and geekettes, have I got a Tube map for you.
I’ve only been in one Apple Store; they aren’t that prolific in my area. The one in Austin, Texas isn’t fancy and I don’t really recall much about it other than it has a lot of MacBooks and geeks running around.
