THE SINGLE GREATEST THING TO COME OUT OF SAN DIEGO COMIC CON 2014
SDCC is under way and fans are getting their fill of the latest movie trailers, TV pilots, celebrity appearances, newest collectibles, and the thing that I’ve enjoyed the most so far has been this picture of a dude punching a bear in the face from the Magic: The Gathering panel earlier today.
I’m a huge MTG nerd and the wait for the next block, Khans of Tarkir, has been killing me. This picture should hold me over until it drops this September.
And now for speculation: what do you think this card even does? I’m hoping for something flavorful like “Whenever this creature enters the battlefield it deals 2 damage to target creature or player.” Take that, bears!

1966 LEGO Batman Project

Sam Gras writes in to us:

Hello, My name is Sam. I’m a Father, Cosplayer, and all around geek. My Four year old daughter is obsessed with Batman and Robin and asked me to make her a LEGO Batmobile that would fit both characters. I made her the iconic 1966 version. The build is on the LEGOIdeas website and has been in the top projects consistently every week. We currently have over 4,000 supporters.

With your help, we can reach our goal of 10K supporters and LEGO will consider producing the set. Below is a link to the build and my Facebook page. Please consider writing an article about the build, this would make an awesome little girl and her father very happy.

This is super rad and I really want those 60’s Batman and Robin figs. Head over to LEGO Ideas to support this project NOW!
