Lord Of The Rings Fan Art - What Can You Find In The Mines Of Moria?

Lord Of The Rings Fan Art – What Can You Find In The Mines Of Moria?

where_s_watto____by_loopydave-d7qh02jIn this fabulous art by Loopydave the Fellowship of the Ring finds far more than just Orcs in the Mines of Moria (and no I’m not talking about a cave troll).

In fact it turns out there are all sorts of other things. The first two I spotted were Grumpy Cat and Cookie Monster, but that’s just scratching the surface.

Loopydave actually provides a link to a version showing everything that’s hidden in…

The Battle of The Five Armies PosterThe promotion for the final Hobbit movie previously titled There and Back Again and now called The Battle of the Five Armies (not sure why they added a the into the title) has begun.

There will likely have a teaser trailer at the Con and hopefully online not too long after.

Epic Level LEGO Map of Middle-Earth

Epic Level LEGO Map of Middle-Earth

LEGO Middle Earth MapReally incredible work here from Christoph Bartneck.

He has painstakingly re-created the map of J.R.R. Tolkien’s Middle-Earth in topographical style from LEGO. And he’s done it on a grand scale. The resulting map is apparently 2 meters by 2 meters (thats roughly 6.5 x 6.5 feet) in size and contains 30,000 bricks. It’s built up in 7 levels and took him 4 months to complete.

He’s even put the…

Here’s something I’ve been looking forward to since… well since I saw their Mission Marvel episode actually.

Finn and Jake Visit Halloween Town In This Nightmare Before Christmas/Adventure Time Mashup

Finn and Jake Visit Halloween Town In This Nightmare Before Christmas/Adventure Time Mashup

finn_and_jake_in_halloween_town_by_funkblast-d7q4uslThis artwork by FunkBlast is almost a case of using absence to define presence. What we’re given here is merely the silhouette’s of Finn and Jake from Adventure Time along with the moon and cliffs that are instantly recognizable from A Nightmare Before Christmas.

There are no details here, and indeed not even that much in the way of color. A few shades of blue and some white is pretty much all it…

Hellboy Fan Art - Dragonslayer

Hellboy Fan Art – Dragonslayer

hellboy_dragonslayer_by_danielgovar-d7rbe8sHere’s another great bit of artwork by Daniel Govar. This time round it’s Hellboy who gets the epic treatment. He’s depicted here slaying a rather majestic dragon.

Is it just me or does he not seem very happy about that?

Hellboy seems to be in “barbarian” mode here using a sword rather than guns and with his horns long, not cut short.

The blue blood used for the dragon does make a nice contrast…

Star Wars / Disney Mashup Cosplay - Meet Snowbafett

Star Wars / Disney Mashup Cosplay – Meet Snowbafett

10533836_342981385851236_7837391901194099574_oNow on record (repeatedly) on the subject of just how lame a  character Boba Fett actually is. Third worst in the entire Star Wars universe isn’t hyperbole. That’s actually where I think he ranks. Fett has one thing and one thing only going for him. He looks pretty cool (in a 70s sort of way).

So Amber Arden’s costume (as photographed here by Estrada Photography) takes the one good thing about…

Beautiful Middle-Earth Art - From The Shire To The Sea

Beautiful Middle-Earth Art – From The Shire To The Sea

From The Shire To The SeaNot only is this a really beautiful painting by Joe Gilronan but there’s so much going on that you have to take your time and let your eyes sweep gently over it.

Obviously starting in the Shire at Bag End, the painting takes us on a tour of western Middle-Earth stopping by Rivendell, Gondor, The Argonath and the Grey Havens, all while the baleful Eye of Sauron glares down.

Gilronan is a…

First Trailer For SyFy’s 12 Monkeys Series

First Trailer For SyFy’s 12 Monkeys Series

The show won’t air until 2015, but SyFy have released the first trailer for 12 Monkeys which is adapted from the Terry Gilliam movie of the same name.

In the trailer we seem to be covering very similar ground to the movie. I’m guessing this is all happening the first episode. I mean how far along with shooting could they really be at this point? Which does raise a question about where they will…
