Brazilian illustrator/traditional animator, Lucas Lago sketched out some hilarious mash-ups of ‘Star Wars’ characters roughly combined with the world of ‘Batman’. It cracks me up considering all it is are doodles of various Star Wars heroes and baddies with pointing ears. Considering how simple the idea is, it was pretty clever. I’m seriously diggin’ the “Jabbat” and “Bat-Bat”
It seems like a mash-up kind of day today. Graphic artist, Matthew Ranzetta created these pretty awesome mash-up posters of classic movies such as ‘Cool Hand Luke’ and ‘The Princess Bride’ with a ‘Star Wars’ twist. Ranzetta’s simple designs makes these poster quite cool. My favorite definitely has to be ‘Rebel Without a Cause’. I would think Han Solo would be more fitting of that title, but what do I know?

This is pretty awesome. There is nothing I love more than a good mash-up. Especially, if it is a mash-up for comic book characters and dinosaurs. Artist, David Resto (as known as d.r3sto on Flickr) created several art pieces combining Marvel heroes with prehistoric creatures. The end results includes Iron Brontosaurus, Captain Ameritops, Hulkasaurus Rex and AnkyloTHORus.
My parody set of Superhero Characters as Dinosaurs. I’ll be working up a few of these every week so stay tuned.
I’m also in the process of getting prints together, believe me, I’d love to share these dinos with your walls too, but I’m running into some red tape. Soon enough.
My favorite has to be Gambilophosaurus. Outside of Hulkasaurus Rex, the rest of the characters look pretty harmless. I don’t know if Red Skull would be intimidated by the adorable face of Captain Ameritops. Hit the jump to check out more of David’s Marvel x Dinosaur mash-up artwork!
Shake Weights crack me up. Especially the infomercials. If you haven’t seen the infomercial or have no idea what Shake Weights are, go to YouTube. On that note, its even more hilarious when artist, Jacob Borshard of CreeBobby Comics imagined what Shake Weights would be like in the world of TRON. Jacob created multiple TRON themed photos to promote his print collection found exclusively on Nakatomi Inc. Jacob is well known for his whimsical art prints and his work has been covered in the past by sites such as /Film.

Mondo x Alamo Drafthouse is well known for their amazing limited edition posters that they create for their premieres. One of my favorites this year would have been the variant ‘Iron Man 2‘ posters by Tyler Stout. One of the worst things is that these posters are very limited and sold at the theatre during the premiere or online in which they sell out in mere seconds. Well, there is some good news. Mondo x Alamo has hooked up with the infamous, Sideshow Collectibles to provide their amazing posters to the masses.
“We’re very excited to join forces with Sideshow Collectibles, the leading collectible manufacturer. We’re working on several major licensed film properties that we will roll out via this partnership,” said Mondo Creative Director Justin Ishmael.
First limited edition poster that Sideshow will offer is for Disney’s TRON and TRON: Legacy. The original limited edition prints will be available via mondotees.com and the variants will be available on Sideshow’s online retail site. This is good news indeed. If these are anything like Mondo’s ‘Star Wars‘ or ‘Star Trek‘ posters, these will be sought out by collectors for years!

Well, this is a first. An “official” (used very loosely) collaboration between Disney and Playboy. Yes I said it. Disney and Playboy. Playboy will be releasing a new feature called “Game On” which is a “sexy tribute to the neon-lit TRON revival”. What can be hotter than sexy ladies and light cycles? Playboy models, Irina Voronina and Sasckya Porto will be letting it all hang out in a ultra-neon pictorial themed to the world of TRON in celebration of the upcoming release of TRON: Legacy. Photographed by Jared Ryder and illustrated by Nigel Evan Dennis, these sexy dames are featured in various costumes (which end up coming off) and on the famous fan-made light cycles by the Parker Bros. Considering this is a tribute and Disney probably had no say on what was produced, the make up and costumes are well done and look very similar to what is being featured in the TRON: Legacy trailer. Wow…. nudity and identity discs… very sexy.
