TheClayPony created this adorable K9 necklace with polymar clay. I'm willing to bet the late Sarah Jane would be thrilled to get her hands on this great fashion accessory.
Artist Phil Postma previously took the opportunity to show us what would happen if Pixar took on Marvel superheroes, and now he's back, this time with Pixar's take on classic pulp films like Flash Gordon, Dick Tracy and The Shadow.
The only thing that could make these Zelda nails any better would be if the character's faces were somehow more pixelated so they looked 8-bit. Either way, they're pretty darn awesome.
The new Superman film is guaranteed to be a marketing boon -both for the officially licensed merchandise and for the cheaper knockoffs. Some of those knockoffs are produced without the slightest bit of research into what the particular superhero being portrayed is all about. Others are repackaged comic book heroes with different names. Check out Superheroic Man, Special Man, Spader Man, and the various collections called "the Sense of Right Alliance," which here includes Superman, Batman, Spider-Man, a Power Ranger, a car, and Shrek. See a whole slew of these toys at Flavorwire. Link -via mental_floss
If you love vintage fashion, but really love geek clothing, then head over to Etsy seller CakeShopCouture's shop where you can grab such awesomely stylish gear as this cute little Star Wars frock.
Superman was born in the age of radio but now lives in the age of social media. He has a lot to adjust to, such as accidentally learning what happens on Game of Thrones before he gets to watch it. You can view the rest of Caldwell Tanner's cartoons over at CollegeHumor.
I regret that I've never actually been to a scifi bar. I've been to a Star Trek movie premiere party during Comic Con and a horror-themed goth bar in Germany, but never a scifi bar. After reading io9's list of the greatest scifi-themed bars on Earth, I've now decided that visiting one of these bars has to go on my bucket list.
Have any of you ever been to any of the scifi bars on the io9 list or one that isn't there but should be?
This Sunday, June 16th, is Captain Picard Day. Every year on this holy day, Trekkies solemnly honor Captain Jean-Luc Picard. He's a role model, you know.
Food Replicator, a blog devoted to recreating food from Star Trek, is ready. It has prepared an Earl Grey tea martini, Earl Grey shortbread and Earl Grey cupcakes. You can find full recipes at the link.
If Superman didn't pull his punch and hit you at full force, what would you experience? I mean besides a bad day. Well, Jake Roper says that you'd feel 190,000,000,000,000,000 joules impact your body. That would be like 2,800 times the power of the atomic bomb that destroyed Hiroshima.
Obviously such a punch would negatively impair your lifestyle. The temperature of such an impact would reach 143,999,999,999.540.3 °F. Roper says, "You'd be liquefied at the atomic level."
So don't tug on his cape.
Cosplay is great and all, but it's pretty easy to dress up like a humanoid character and walk around all day. That's what makes this Toothless costume so amazing -it looks nothing like a human and exactly like the dragon we came to love in How to Train Your Dragon.
If you want to see what it looks like in motion, skip to the one minute mark and prepare to be impressed.

Jaxson Denno was so excited when he learned that Iron Man was nearby and would be glad to meet him. Alas, he had been deceived. Only Iron Man actor Robert Downey, Jr. was available:
Only problem: Downey, in the Western Massachusetts towns of Sunderland and Shelburne Falls to shoot his latest, The Judge, was not wearing his Iron Man outfit.
That did not please Jaxson, as this photo shows.
Not to worry, though – Downey, 48, soon brought a smile to the boy's face.
"He was fine as soon as he talked to him," Jaxson's mother, Heather Denno, told PEOPLE, explaining that her young son "was so confused because I kept telling him it was Iron Man and he knew it wasn't. Well, not Iron Man in the suit."

In 1934, four years before the Man of Steel appeared on Action Comics #1, writer Jerry Siegel was trying to pitch the Superman character to artist Russell Keaton. In a letter to Keaton, Siegel described an origin story substantially different from what is now the canonical backstory:
1. In his laboratory, the last man on earth worked furiously. He had only a few moments left.
2. Giant cataclysms were shaking the reeling planet, destroying mankind. It was in its last days, dying...
3. The last man placed his infant babe within a small time-machine he had completed, launching it as ---
4. --- the laboratory walls caved-in upon him.
5. The time-vehicle flashed back thru the centuries, alighting in the primitive year, 1935 A. D. A passing motorist sighted the metal cylinder...
6. ...and upon investigating discovered the sleeping babe within.
7. The infant was placed in an orphanage. The first day, it playfully bent its metal bed out of shape. The astounded attendants, of course, did not realize they were caring for a child whose physical structure was millions of years advanced from their own.
What would your favorite modern game look like if it was still a classic 8-bit Nintendo game? 72 Pins has answered that question with their great NEStolgia posters.
Aside from games, they also designed a few popular TV shows as vintage Nintendo games as well. I'm particularly fond of the Arrested Development set. In fact, I'd love to play Dr. Funke, which is presumably a lot like Dr. Mario only filled with terrible and unintentional inuendos.
Sure, the horse, chicken and pigeon masks we sell in the Neatoshop are cool, but if you really want to blow someone's mind, try wearing a mask of something that's not from the realm of man. Artist Ian Langohr recently made this cthulhu mask and I'm really hoping he puts up a video on how it was made, the same way he did with his zombie cat mask.
For those who have ever read a Marvel comic and thought, "gee, Stan Lee knows so much about life and the world. I bet he's great with women. In fact, I wish I could smell like him," there is hope. Now you can smell like Stan Lee, or at least what Stan Lee thinks his signature smell should smell like, thanks to the Stan Lee signature cologne.
Most Green Lantern rings are about as lame as the movie, but you can make yours glow with a little bit of hacking as described in this great Instructable by Multi-Bot. Of course, you'll have to wait until 3D printing gets a lot better before you can use it to make a gun or sledgehammer to wipe out your enemies.
Wait, there are 649 Pokémon now? Kids are spoiled now. In my day, we got by perfectly fine with only 151 Pokémon and didn't complain. Heck, we were grateful to have those.
A trainer who goes by the handle APT carved rubber stamps for an alarmingly large number of Pokémon as well as other anime and game series.

Does anyone know the time zone of Galifrey?
You've seen what happens when Adventure Time meets the Avengers, but as it turns out, that was only one of many Adventure Time/comic book mash ups. Here are two more, one featuring Galactus and another with The Batman filling in as Finn.

After the Dalek gave birth to WALL-E, it made sense for her and Artoo to go ahead and get married. Jordon and Wendy combined three science fiction franchises for his save-the-date card.
