Lambert’s Technabob post. December 20th, 2013. Cheap cash-in online this morning, legendary comic book character reduced to novelty item. I am afraid of this culture. I don’t know if it has a face, but it does have a thousand gaping maws.
I’m pretty sure this is the first time that I’m going to describe Batman as cute, but what else can I say? This plush Batman is cute. There. Robin’s gained a bit of weight though. I’ll call him Double-Chin Robin.
While you guys were probably staring at some other part of Dr. Manhattan’s glowing blue body in Watchmen, you can’t deny that his weird white eyeballs were a little disturbing too. Now you can freak out your friends with the same eyes, courtesy of these custom Dr.
Stare at the Staremen Watchmen 24/7, thanks to Medicom’s Watchmen Kubrick mini figures. The minifigs are divided into two sets of threes: set A has Nite Owl, The Comedian and Ozymandias, while set B has Dr.
Zack Snyder’s take on Watchmen may have suffered mixed reviews from fans and newbies alike at the box office, but Alan Moore’s seminal characters are certainly scoring big with one subset of the population: crafty types are embracing Watchmen‘s heroes anew… and in interesting ways.
Are you a movie buff? Then you’re probably cautiously excited about the upcoming Watchmen movie. Cautiously, because whenever you start to wonder about the movie a horde of Cheetos-smelling chubby geeks with 90s fashion sensibilities immediately surrounds you, desperate to drop knowledge on anyone who’s not into comics and blather on about the Keene Act and the Black Freighter and the first Nite Owl and how the panels on the page of one issue are symmetrical or finish in reverse order or how Rorschach looks like –
Since you’re a geek yourself, only another sort of geek, you can’t give these comic fiends a good ol’ shut the hell up punch.
Award-winning digital entertainment outfit littleloud created a promotional flash game for the upcoming Watchmen movie. Yes Fanny McFanboy! It’s a game based on the graphic novel! What’s that? You can’t wait to play as Rorschach? Well you can’t play as Rorschach.
