Summer will soon be over and when the weather turns you’ll be glad you have these Attack on Titan Survey Corps snuggie-style blankets to keep warm. You can choose either a male or female version, complete with cape. If you’re feeling like causing trouble, you can opt for the colossus version instead. Preorder now for delivery in November.

This working cyborg arm built out of Lego is the brainchild of Diavo Voltaggio. He made the creation at Brick Fair in Chantilly, Virgina and calls it the Mark VI since it’s the sixth version of the arm that he has created. He built it using a Lego Mindstorms EV3 set. Mashable notes:

The Mark VI features LED lights and a smartphone cradle, although neither are necessary to the arm’s functioning. Despite its simplicity, the machine sucks up quite a bit of juice: Voltaggio says he has to replace the batteries in the arm every hour or so.

It all works via little buttons inside the arm that, when touched, cause motors to activate making the fingers open and close. Next up on his to-do list? A full body!

See video of the arm in action and an interview with the designer after the break.

Looks like Verne Troyer, aka Mini-Me, is a big fan of sharks. He posted this photo on his twitter account and it’s absolutely perfect. You just have to wonder where he’s hiding the laser beam because what fun are sharks without friggin’ laser beams?

Director James Gunn wanted the make-up effects for the aliens in Guardians of the Galaxy to look genuine, and special effects makeup designer Dave White was the man who made it happen. In an interview with Co. Create he said:

“I’ve been fortunate to have been around the Marvel world for a little while,” he enthused to Co.Create. “I like to think my own artwork and style has worked well within the universe. James had very specific ideas and I would give an interpretation of what I thought would work. Ultimately, it’s down to what the director wants to see: He needs to go through that process of testing ideas to see how they read in the world he wants to create.” He continued, “There is a retro hint in the [Guardians] designs. I was very careful not to use modern creature design influences that could have fallen short in the unique world Gunn had envisioned.”

These incredible images show just how much work went into creating the fantastic aliens that were scene on-screen.

Some girls dream of marrying a prince and it looks like Blaine Gibson always dreamed of marrying a princess. He set about making his dreams a reality recently at Walt Disney World when he got down on one knee and proposed to the Disney princesses (and a fairy). Ariel, Cinderella, and even Jasmine were on the list, despite Aladdin’s disapproval.

He proposed to a villain too. See the pics after the break to find out who it is.

We all know the story about the strange goo, but this Venn diagram t-shirt explains it in a logical way that mathematicians can understand. That slice where Ninjas and Renaissance Artists overlap is exactly where you’ll find the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

The Guardians of the Galaxy may be heroes who saved the universe, but that doesn’t mean they don’t need a little help in the form of stunt doubles who make them look even more awesome on the big screen. These photos of the cast’s stunt doubles were posted by Chloe Bruce, who is Zoe Saldana’s double in Guardians of the Galaxy and Jaimie Alexander’s double in Thor: The Dark World.
