LEGO CUUSOO News: Great Scott! There ARE Minifigs With The Delorean! | From Bricks To Bothans
So I guess this is happening? It's funny that the LEGO community is complaining about the design of the LEGO DELOREAN THAT IS ACTUALLY COMING OUT.

Revisiting the “Mrs. Doubtfire” Cartoon Directed by Chuck Jones | Cartoon Brew
This is cool. I've always loved this animation from Mrs. Doubtfire and somehow I never knew it was by Chuck Jones.

Sorry Consoles, Apple’s Controller Support Spells Trouble For You
I've been waiting patiently for Apple to enable apps and controllers on the Apple TV and completely disrupt the game industry (again), and I think it's going to happen really soon.

Retro Thing: Superman’s Black-And-White Flights On The Silver Screen
I just finished a book about the history of Superman and this post was perfect timing. It’s funny what a problem taking off and landing was for old-school TV and Film techniques.

This New App Lets You Know if a Movie Includes a Postcredits Scene | Movies.com
What a great idea for an app. I always forget that it's not just Marvel doing post-credits scenes these days. I could see myself firing up this app during the credits of a movie to see if I needed to stick around.

New Funko Pop Disney Pixar Toys Merida Princess Jasmine | The Mary Sue
I only have one Funko Pop toy, but I think I’ll be starting a little collection as soon as the TMNT Funko Pop toys come out. These new ones from Disney are pretty awesome too.

Paul Williams Says Muppet Movie Soundtrack Will Be Re-released – ToughPigs
Very good news for Muppet geeks like me.

Pee-Wee Herman nastygrams Pee-Wee fan-fest to death – Boing Boing
This is a huge bummer. I was looking forward to going down to Louisville for this and taking a bunch of photos and video for the site. Too bad Paul Reubens couldn't just embrace this and make an appearance instead of getting it canceled.

EA teases new Star Wars Battlefront game – GameSpot.com
Oh man, a new Star Wars Battlefront game would definitely get me to buy a next-gen console. Those two games are amazing and I still play them today.

I love this game and it was surprisingly awesome reading about the team that created it.

‘Gravity’ Teaser Trailer: Alfonso Cuarón Strands Sandra Bullock and George Clooney In Space
I've been hearing about this movie for ages now and from the awesome poster and trailer, it looks like it's going to be one of the most unique movies of 2013.

United | We Love Fine
The winning T-Shirt design in We Love Fine's X-Men contest. An awesome shirt.

‘The World’s End’ International Teaser Trailer: A Sci-Fi Conclusion to the Three Flavors Cornetto Trilogy
'The World's End' is my most-hyped movie of 2013 by a long shot. Edgar Wright is one of my favorite directors and I can’t wait to see the final chapter in his Cornetto Trilogy (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, and The World’s End).

‘Ender’s Game’ Teaser Trailer: A Landmark Sci-Fi Novel Finally Comes to Theaters | /Film
I'm such a bad geek, I still need to read this book.

LEGO Master Builder Academy Level 4 coming!
Even though Steampunk is kind of lame and outdated now, these LEGO Master Builder sets look really cool.

The Strange Case of the Super Mario Bros. Movie – Grantland
Read this, it's probably the best piece ever written about the Super Mario Bros. movie.

BREAKING: Disney Shuts Down LucasArts; 150 Staffers Laid Off | Cartoon Brew
Well, that escalated quickly. Kind of sad to see this historic game company bite the dust, but then again, when's the last time they made a good game?

Will Arnett Joins ‘Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles’ in Unknown Role | /Film
Damn it, it's going to be way harder for me to ignore this movie if Will Arnett is involved.

Original George Lucas Script ‘The Star Wars’ Gets Comic Adaptation | /Film
This sounds cool, but it would be cooler as an animated project.

2013 Lone Ranger Sets – Page 23 – LEGO Licensed – Eurobricks Forums
I don't plan on seeing this movie, but some of these LEGO sets actually look pretty cool.

LEGO negotiating Simpsons license with Fox [News] | The Brothers Brick | LEGO Blog
Wait, what? I've always thought LEGO sets based on The Simpsons would be amazing, but I never thought it would be possible due to the more…adult tone of the show. I don't think the minifigures would looke that great overall (Homer especially) but you have to admit, Marge's hair piece would be pretty sweet.

Doozers Construct Video from Their New Series « Muppet Fans Who Grew Up – ToughPigs
A Doozer cartoon for kids is such a great idea. This looks pretty cute.

LEGO Super Heroes Marvel Comics News: Iron Man 3 Sets Now on LEGO Shop@Home | From Bricks To Bothans
Iron Man 3 LEGO sets are out already? Yikes, my backlog of things to buy is getting out of hand. I don't even have the LOTR or TMNT sets yet.

How Disney Bought Lucasfilm—and Its Plans for ‘Star Wars’ – Businessweek
A very interesting read about the Disney/Lucasfilm acquisition.

Signalnoise (James White) has been killing it with these illustrations lately, and this TIE Fighter is just simply awesome.

‘Iron Man 3′ Theatrical Trailer: Lots of New Armors, and Problems For Tony Stark | /Film
HULKBUSTER armor. Awesome. I doubt that means we'll see the Hulk, but still.
