Everyone needs a faithful companion, and Perseus really lucked out in Clash of the Titans when Athena refused Zeus’s request to send the hero her own pet owl, instead offering a brass-and-iron version of Bubo she had Hephaestus construct.
It’s not easy to display your cool Star Wars stuff. Your figures don’t really look good in those protective plastic bubbles and display cards just sitting there on a shelf. Even if you buy two of everything so you can display one, it’s still hard to make this stuff look good while on display.
I loved me some Mel Brooks films growing up; Blazing Saddles and Spaceballs were my favorites. Spaceballs was a hilarious mockery of the Star Wars franchise, and one of the most immediately recognizable characters from the film is Dark Helmet.
Adam Savage might not be on Mythbusters anymore, but you can still watch him on YouTube on Tested. On the latest episode of the series, Savage goes to practical effects shop Weta Workshop to check out the skeleton suit they made for the new Ghost in the Shell movie.
If you want to bust some ghosts, you need the right equipment. And now you can get it. That’s because Anovos recently unveiled their official Ghostbusters Proton Pack Kit.

Every time I watch a movie that has a lot of props, I always wonder what happens to them when filming is done. Eventually some make it to movie prop auction sites, which suggest they are sold off at some point after filming.
Whether you need one for cosplay of you just want really large fingers, Ivan Owen can give you a hand. Literally. Owen runs ChainCrafts, an Etsy store that specializes in armor, costumes and jewelry. His most intriguing product is the mechanical hand that’s twice the size of a human hand.
So you’ve managed to replicate the replica weapons made by Harrison Krix aka Volpin Props. Time to defend yourself with some armor, particularly the Ancient Nord/Draugr Helmet from Skyrim. This replica is of the female version, but even if you’re a man that doesn’t really matter because look:
Mass Effect certainly inspires some of the best replicas and cosplay I’ve ever seen. Here’s another winner from Chris Myles, a replica of the Omni-tool, the coolest looking computer in the galaxy. It even has the Omni Blade enhancement that debuted in Mass Effect 3.
If you’ve got some deep pockets, and are looking for something that you know nobody else will be getting as a holiday gift this year, then you might want to head on over to Los Angeles this December, for a chance to own some original props from the Back to the Future films.
