My God, Those Arms: Scary Realistic Popeye Figurine.



This is a limited edition (of 500) "realistic" looking 12-inch Popeye figure designed by Head Toys and available for pre-order for $300 (that's a lot of spinach). Those arms, my God. Popeye must also have an equally impressive penis, because otherwise there's no way he wouldn't have already ripped it off and thrown it into outerspace by accident. And yes, that's my professional medical opinion (one of my New Year's resolutions is to pretend I'm a doctor more often).

First Look At An Official Jurassic World LEGO Set

This is the first peek at one of the official Jurassic World LEGO sets coming out. I like the little mosquito in amber piece, that was a nice touch. As you can probably imagine, I will own this set. I will own it so hard. Plus jam a handful of those velociraptors up my keister.


Hello I'm Back!!!

UCL: Arsenal vs Galatasaray 4-1

Danny Welbeck 1st goal

Danny Welbeck scored his first senior hat-trick as Arsenal marked Arsène Wenger's 18th anniversary as manager with an emphatic win in the Champions League.

The deadline-day signing poked in his first goal after 22 minutes and added a second on the half-hour mark after powering clear of the Galatasaray defence.

Alexis Sanchez grabbed a third just before half-time after latching onto Mesut Ozil's through-ball, and Welbeck completed his treble with another deft finish early in the second half.

UEFA Champions League: Arsenal vs Besiktas 1-0

Alexis Sanchez

Alexis Sanchez scored his first goal for the club as Arsenal sealed their place in the Champions League group stage with a dramatic, almost unbearably tense victory.
The Gunners have now won 13 of the 14 play-off ties they have played in their history - but none can surely have been as closely-fought and as tight as this one.

Fully Customized Movie-Accurate TMNT Action Figures

custom-tmnt-movie-toys-1.jpgThese are the TMNT movie-based action figures (links to eBay auction) that were fully customized and painted by John Harmon of Mint Condition Customs (of these other painted Ninja Turtle action figures fame) to look way less shitty than they originally come. Unsurprisingly, John did a great job as usual and polished these turds so fine you could probably see your reflection in them (before and after shots below).

So, how many of you went to see the new TMNT movie this weekend? How was it? I thought about going then decided against it. Just kidding, I had to spend the whole weekend in jail and didn't have a choice choice. I did make some new friends though. "You mean lovers?" Yes :( 

Keep going for a bunch of closeups and the before and after shots.

Santi Cazorla opened the scoring for the FA Cup holders with a low shot in the 21st minute and Aaron Ramsey added a second three minutes before the break, finishing expertly after good work from Yaya Sanogo.

The best was saved for last though, substitute Olivier Giroud producing a thunderous effort from 25 yards to put the seal on a eye-catching victory over a rather subdued City side.
