Canadian digital artist and photographer, Mike Roshuk put together a collection of Disney Princesses reimagined as warriors. As usual, with fan art like these, the ladies do not have much going on in the armor department. It just doesn’t seem like a smart idea to go into battle just wearing underwear, but I have to admit that Ariel with a trident is pretty fucking bad ass. Sigh… Internet…
OH, WOW! Lost alumni, Evangeline Lilly is lookin’ sexy and fierce in the first look at Sylvan Elf, Tauriel in Peter Jackson‘s The Hobbit: The Desolution of Smaug! Evangeline Lilly spoke with EW about her role in The Desolution of Smaug and drops hints of a love story with a certain Elf we met before.
“Tauriel’s relationship with Legolas is significant. They’ve known each other since they were children, and Legolas’ dad, [Elven king] Thranduil, has a soft spot for Tauriel and sees something very special in her. So if you grow up side by side, and your dad has a very special spot in his heart for this young woman who’s a fantastic warrior, I think it’s hard not to notice her.” She laughs. “That’s probably as much as I can say.”
I imagine Tauriel is going to be one very popular cosplay during convention season. Lucky us!
The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug drops on December 13, 2013.
I always thought that George R.R. Martin‘s epic, Song of Ice and Fire would have been a great animated series, but that was only because I could have never imagined that it was possible to recreate the story in a live action television series until Game of Thrones was released. I’m guessing artist, Тхе Мичо had the same idea as he has created over 300 portraits of characters from Song of Ice and Fire. Some of the illustrations seems like they were inspired by Game of Thrones, but there are a huge amount of illustrations for characters that were created before they appeared in the series and it’s pretty amusing how close they are. You can check out all 300+ illustrations on Тхе Мичо’s Facebook fan page.
Yes. I do realize that I always say that any toy that rolls out of Hot Toys is “the greatest action figure ever made”, but in this case, IT’S TRUE! Hot Toys has just rolled out three insanely awesome collectibles all from the iconic film, RoboCop! There will be a total of three amazing releases starting with:
RoboCop 1:6 scale “Die-Cast Movie Masterpiece Series” Action Figure
Part Man. Part Machine. All Cop. From the 1987 classic, RoboCop, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to introduce Hot Toys’ RoboCop MMS Diecast Sixth Scale Figure. The newest addition to Hot Toys MMS Diecast series is specially designed with diecast material for greater realism. The MMS Diecast series brings fans a higher level of authenticity, focusing on materials, fine details and engineering.
The movie-accurate RoboCop MMS Diecast Sixth Scale Figure is highly detailed, featuring a newly sculpted body, metallic black, grey and silver armor, and interchangeable lower faces. RoboCop speaks six memorable quotes from the film, allowing fans to recreate their favorite scenes.
RoboCop with “Mechanical Chair” 1:6 scale “Die-Cast Movie Masterpiece Series” Action Figure
Part Man. Part Machine. All Cop. From the 1987 classic, RoboCop, Sideshow Collectibles is proud to introduce Hot Toys’ RoboCop MMS Diecast Sixth Scale Figure, featuring RoboCop’s mechanical chair from the Metro West maintenance chamber. The newest addition to Hot Toys MMS Diecast series is specially designed with diecast material for greater realism. The MMS Diecast series brings fans a higher level of authenticity, focusing on materials, fine details and engineering.
ED-209 1:6 scale “Die-Cast Movie Masterpiece Series” Action Figure
Sideshow Collectibles is proud to present Hot Toys’ ED-209 Sixth Scale Figure, from the 1987 classic, Robocop. The movie-accurate ED-209 is highly detailed featuring a newly sculpted body, interchangeable battle damaged arm, and improved articulation in the arms, legs and claws to better simulate the enforcement droid’s movements. The ED-209 MMS Sixth Scale Figure speaks three memorable quotes along with various sound effects from the film.
I have to admit that the best part of these releases are that these suckers will be die-cast and not made of cheap plastic. On top of that, Hot Toys is now venturing into adding electronic sounds and voices into their collectibles. All that just might be the reason that these RoboCop figures will set up back $300-$450 each. However, I’m guessing these will be a worthy investment for any RoboCop lover.
