Return of the Jedi Poster Offer

I’ve said it before I love mail away stuff. That said, it kind of surprised me the other day when this turned up in a box I was rumaging through. I’m sure I had the proofs of purchase for it. Two proof seems a lot for a fairly cheesey poster. Maybe even then I realized […]

International Bonus Battle Droids

With all the mentions lately of Episode 1,  I thought it would be fun to dust this guy off. Mrs. Nerd had picked this card up at a local comic shop for me. It’s a European E1 realease Destroyer Droid with a bonus Battle Droid. Her thought was I could use it as an army […]

WOS Simpsons Stamps Desktop Wallpaper

I bought a sheet of the new Simpsons stamps at my local US Post Office a while back. It got me to thinking how cool would it have been if they used WOS figures instead of drawings. Check out my take on it as desktop wallpaper below. (Click on the image below for the full […]

Captain Kirk Star Trek TOS Desktop Wallpaper

The “futuristic” space suits from Star Trek The Original Series were masterpieces of vintage Sci Fi. The tall blocky helmets remind me of something out of a Buck Rodgers serial. I’m sure at the time, they would have seemed trim and modern compared to what the Apollo crews were doning. They also did a pretty […]

Of Star Wars, Candy, and Love

Mrs. Nerd and I recently watched “Forgetting Sara Marshall” on HBO. Now, I’m not going to say it was a great flick, but it did get me to thinking. The gist of the film is about finding somebody that gets you. The protagonist of the film finds a girl that understands a Dracula musical with […]

Indiana Jones Crystal Skeleton

“Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull”(KOTCS) was released last year to less than enthusiastic reviews by both fans and critics. The plot revolved around crystal skulls, Mayan end of the world predictions, and aliens. There are several crystal skulls in the world that folks have varying degrees of thought on. The ones […]

Movie Critics vs. Toy Reviewers

Alright. I started my Saturday morning off fairly well. Played a little Tomb Raider on the Wii, picked up lunch. Normal end of the week stuff. Before moving on, I decided to surf the web a bit. My first stop was IMDB to check for any reviews of the new GI Joe film. Now, I […]

Lara Croft Vs. Imhotep Desktop Wallpaper

It’s no secret I’m a huge Tomb Raider fan. Even Mrs. Nerd somewhat enjoys Lara’s exploits. This is a digital wallpaper created from a variety of pictures, figures, and game graphics. Most of the wall is created with graphics from the Tombraider Level Editor. The figures are NECA’s Imhotep from the Mummy Returns, McFarlane’s Xaltotun the […]

Big Bang Theory Mini Figures

I had previously posted this in before the site format change, but it didn’t make the conversion.  “Big Bang Theory” is probably the only show we watch every week, even it’s a repeat. For me it’s cool seeing characters I can really identify with. For Mrs. Nerd, I’m guessing she enjoys seeing Penny going through […]

Ugnaught

Ugnaughts are one of the creepier creatures from the original Star Wars trilogy. First appearing in “The Empire Strikes Back,” they seem to fill the municipal maintenance functions and act as general laborers. I was never certain of their alliances, though. They play monkey in the middle with C-3PO’s head against Chewbacca. Then they assist […]

Simprano Desktop Wallpaper

By far, the most popular desktop wallpaper I’ve ever done. A combination of the Simpsons gang characters in a simple, but effective homage to some of the original Soprano’s advertising.  (Click the image to see fullsize. Then right click…etc.)
