  1. Hot Toys’ Black Widow, For All Your Tiny Scarlett Johansson Needs

    Supergirly

    Another Marvel movie, another selection of eerily realistic action figures from Hot Toys, this time with everyone's favorite product of the Cold War, Black Widow. She even comes with lit-up Widows Bite gauntlets, the better to pose her electrocuting my Lex Luthor action figure. Or jumpstarting my Portal turret. Oh who am I kidding, I can't afford this figure, so, like you, I will be gazing at these scarily accurate pictures of it instead.

  3. The Oscar Statue Gets a Bit More Anatomically Correct in This Sketch From Above Average

    Count how many times they say "penis."

    Did you know the Oscar statue had a penis until the 1950s? Okay, that's not actually true, but it's the premise for this sketch from Above Average. In it, SNL's Tim Robinson plays a sculptor who is finally restoring the Oscar statue to its full, penis-having splendor... because of reasons?

  9. Facebook Blocked the ACLU Because of Boobs

    Facebook sure does hate boobs.

    Facebook has an ongoing war on boobs. The latest skirmish came when Facebook banned the ACLU because it posted a photo of a statue it was defending. That statue had a woman's bare breasts, so Facebook pulled it and blocked the ACLU.

  10. Hot Toys Releasing An Iron Man Figure With No Armor, Who’s Really Beat Up, And Has Lots Of Toys

    Excelsior!

    Now that I own a Hot Toys figure, I can personally attest to their quality but while they've already produced a few Iron Man collectibles, they've decided to put out another, mostly armor-less one. "Hot Toys is thrilled to introduce the Tony Stark (The Mechanic) Collectible Figurine after the exciting scene where Tony Stark creates homemade weapons to infiltrate The Mandarin’s mansion," they write on Facebook. "Tony Stark in his battle damaged civilian attire in the movie, highlighting the newly developed head sculpt, an advanced body with light-up chest light and greatly detailed weapons and accessories." Take a look.

  11. Bombshell Black Canary Is a Rockabilly Songbird

    Oh My Stars and Garters

    Black Canary might not be the first to get the bombshell treatment, but if I do say so myself she looks stunning. She joins Barbara Gordon's Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Supergirl, Poison Ivy, and Harley Quinn in this gorgeous new series designed by Ant Lucia. Each statue runs for about $100 and must be reserved because they are limited edition, so if you want to get one it's a good idea to go do that sooner rather than later! I have a feeling these Canaries aren't going to be around for long.

  12. 11 San Diego Comic-Con Exclusives I Must Have Or Else Nerd Tears

    DO WANT

    As a nerd, I've collected a few things through the years. Some fans obsess over amassing an entire series of one particular thing, I just like what I like. So you can imagine when San Diego Comic-Con rolls around. While some of these SDCC exclusives might be offered online by the respective companies after the show, most won't be, and that's unfortunate considering I won't be attending the convention this week. So here is my ultimate wish-list of SDCC exclusives. Here's hoping I can convince a few friends to do me a solid.

  15. That’s It, We’re Moving: Seven-Foot-Tall Bruce Lee Statue Unveiled in L.A.’s Chinatown

    On a related note, every statue of Bruce Lee that's ever been erected has also been shirtless.

    Geekosystem's office is in New York City, and while I wouldn't want to be anywhere else, I've got to admit that we have terrible pop culture-centic statues compared to some other cities. Philadelphia has Rocky, Milwaukee has The Fonz, Palm Springs had that enormous Marilyn Monroe -- heck, Detroit's getting a RoboCop! And what do we have? A statue of Ralph Kramden from The Honeymooners hanging out next to the Port Authority Bus Terminal. It's practically a slap in the face. So the news that the Chinatown district of Los Angeles recently erected a seven foot tall statue of Bruce Lee, in all his shirtless nunchuck-slinging glory, has me a bit miffed. We have a loudmouth bus driver and they have Bruce Lee? Man, screw New York.

  16. Northlake Library’s Getting a Giant Hulk Statue With or Without Crowdfunding

    Hulk like literacy.

    In May, I wrote about the Northlake Library's Indiegogo campaign to raise money for a nine-foot-tall Incredible Hulk statue. There are still four days left in the campaign, but they're woefully short of their $30,000 goal. At the moment, they're sitting still at $3,710, but don't let that get you down, because the library is getting a Hulk statue. It's not the one they wanted, but they're not going to look a gift Hulk in the mouth.

  17. OMG: Super Best Friends Forever Exclusive Merchandise At SDCC This Year

    Yes. Yes yes yes yes yes yes yes. Yes.

    If you love the Lauren Faust created DC Nation short, Super Best Friends Forever, you're in luck. Although we won't be seeing any more animated shorts (at least anytime soon), DC has made the wise decision to create a San Diego Comic-Con exclusive statue set. USA Today has the rest of the DC con exclusives but we have tunnel vision right now. Take our money. Take it now. The three together will run $49.95 and of course, you'll have to physically be at SDCC or know someone going to get one. Or risk scary Ebay prices after the fact. (via DC Women Kicking Ass) Are you following The Mary Sue on Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr, Pinterest, & Google +?

  18. Congratulations, Detroit, You’re Getting a Giant Robocop Statue, See It Before It’s Bronzed

    Kickstarter has given the world a lot of interesting things. Soon it will bring a larger-than-life statue of Robocop to Detroit. The project raised more than its $50,000 goal back in March of 2011, and the statue is finally ready to be cast in bronze. If you've ever wanted to see a pre-bronze Robocop statue, we have pictures after the jump.

  19. Buddhist Statue Retrieved by Nazis is Actually From Space, Says Scientists

    Prepare for the conspiracy theories, because here's today's most improbable story: Scientists have confirmed that a Buddhist statue, known as the "iron man," obtained by Nazis from Tibet is actually from space. Specifically, the thing was likely made from a massive chunk of the Chinga meteorite that deposited itself across the border of Russia and Mongolia somewhere between 10,000 and 20,000 years ago.

  20. Scientists Prove Easter Island Statues Could Walk, Natives Say “I Told You So”

    No one has ever conclusively proven how the statues on Easter Island, the moai, were moved into place. The story told by generations of Rapanui, the indigenous residents of the island, describe the moai walking the land animated by mana, a spiritual force transmitted by powerful ancestors. Archaeologists Terry Hunt and Carl Lipo tested a way the moai might have "walked," and found it plausible.
