  1. Artist Reimagines Pop Culture Icons as Byzantine Religious Icons

    eye candy

    To be fair, Fotis Varthis says on their Behance page that their Byzantine series is based on the Byzantine art style as a whole, not on any particular saint iconography. The series began when they were attempting to draw a prophet and accidentally drew Saruman instead. You can probably guess what came next. Check out two more of Fotis Varthis' series at Behance.

    eye candy

    Among her other work, Amanda Visell makes beautiful one-of-a-kind wooden "action figures" based on pop culture characters, complete with box art and accessories. We've featured them twice before, but we couldn't resist Wonder Woman.

  3. Cartoons Go Couture: Animated Ladies Paired with High Fashion

    Suddenly

    Princess Bubblegum is equally a monarch, a scientist, and a girl who knows how to get her dress on, and I respect that. I'm still willing to bet that Marceline is around somewhere, sniggering at this. But maybe the leading lady of Adventure Time is to recent of a reference for you? Then check out the rest of Jerome LaMaar's cartoons, featuring characters from Sailor Moon, ThunderCats, Jem, and Daria.

  4. Travel Posters for Pop Culture Locations, by Dave Perillo

    eye candy

    We're no stranger to travel posters for fictional locations, but Dave Perillo's art sure is charming. Ventur in for more '80s nostalgia, and then a bunch of stuff that isn't even a travel poster but that's cute enough anyway.

  5. Cartoon Network Will Bring Back Old Favorites, ThunderCats Not Deemed a New Favorite

    Our Adorable Past

    Perhaps taking a cue from Nickelodeon and its recent trip down memory lane, Cartoon Network has announced that it will bring some of its old favorites back into its primetime lineup in a block called Cartoon Planet. It also announced its list of returning shows, and one super-hyped reboot didn't make the cut. ThunderCats was nowhere to be seen. Could it be coming back at another time of the year, taking a Community-style hiatus? Other evidence points to "Snarf."

    Things We Saw Today

    Ashley Eckstein, who provides the voice of Ahsoka Tano on Cartoon Network's Star Wars: The Clone Wars said that she's always wanted to cosplay the character, even before she got the gig.

  7. Stilt Bats and Pumm-Ra: Unseen Bizarre Concept Art for The Thundercats

    Our Adorable Past

    If you thought that The Thundercats already contained enough weird human-animal hybrids, you should see the stuff that didn't make it past the concept stage. I'm not sure what capacity Crab-Man would have served in the show, but I'm already imagining a dopey laugh for him for when I tickle his feet.

  8. 14 Pictures Of Old School 80s Heroes In Fancy Dress

    eye candy

    Chilean artist Fabian Ciraolo has depicted the likes of Salvador Dalí, Frida Kahlo and Elizabeth Taylor but he's also pretty adept at drawing 80s pop-culture icons. Take a gander at his retro-styled versions of Jem, the ThunderCats, She-Ra and more! (There may be a surprise appearance from Captain Planet)

  9. Time-Lapse of Giant Thundercats Action Figures Oil Painting

    Artist Robert Burden has made a name for himself by creating large paintings of old action figures. He also makes time-lapse videos of the entire process, which as we all know, is a form of video the Internet appreciates. His new piece features the '80s Thundercats in a very large, very pretty oil painting. The piece, called "Soliders of Thundera," measures in at 6 feet by 11 feet unframed, and took Burden about 1,000 hours of work spread over 7 months. Head on past the jump to watch the time-lapse video of the creation of the piece, and also so you can be amazed at the things painters know to add to paintings.

  15. Things We Saw Today: There Are… Three Wonder Woman Costumes in the New Show?

    Things We Saw Today

    So, according to the president of NBC, all of the so far shown Wonder Woman costumes are used in the show. Including on that we haven't seen yet that's based on the Lynda Carter one. So, okay. For the record, NBC, the reason why there was an outcry isn't because you changed her costume from the original. It's because you changed the costume and it was still ridiculous. ...at DC Women Kicking Ass.

  16. Carl Sagan Explains the Geek Universe [Video]

    It Came From Outer Space

    What if, in an alternate universe, Carl Sagan existed to explain the nuances and the beauty of fictional geek universes and planets? While we recommend the real Sagan series currently being promoted on Facebook, we won't deny how cool it would have been to hear Carl Sagan talk about Thundera. (College Humor via BuzzFeed)

  17. New ThunderCats Series Makes Old Series Look Even Cheesier [Video]

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

    Today in Reboots We Like: A new trailer for the upcoming ThunderCats anime series premiered at WonderCon and once again, it's proving to be the series that the old series wished it could have been. As someone who watched the old series when it was on, the ThunderCats were a bunch of odd-looking, awesome cat people with swords and stuff, and that was pretty much it. (Maybe because I was five and didn't consider anything deeper than "They're awesome cat people with swords and stuff.") But this series makes it look like they're a humanoid race of cat people who actually evolved from cats, fighting an epic battle with armies and weapons, and magic! (And live alongside humanoids who evolved from dinosaurs.) The nostalgia trip is nice, but being able to improve on nostalgia? The little kid in me (and, no doubt, in everyone else who was a fan) is very, very curious. (Topless Robot)

  18. New ThunderCats Looks Genuinely Excellent [Video]

    I'll Allow It

    Ok, ready for something potentially very awesome? This is the trailer for the new ThunderCats reboot, which will premiere on Cartoon Network later this year. It's done in anime-style and looks like it should have been all along. Also pleasantly surprising is that Cheetara's clothes actually look like clothes and not a "this is the closest we could get to naked" leotard! Yay! More details after the jump.

  20. Image of New ThunderCats Cartoon Released

    Topless Robot is in possession of this official image from the new ThunderCats cartoon. While some people might not be too keen on remakes, I actually think this one has potential for a pretty wicked reboot. Is it time for a new generation to have the ThunderCats in their lives? I would have to say "HOOOOOOOOOOOOH" to that. (That means "Yes.") So, right off the bat, what's different?
