    This is a short Game of Thrones blooper reel released by HBO for San Diego Comic-Con. I'm not sure how I feel about it. On the one hand it was funny to see all the actors breaking character and having a laugh, but on the other hand...wait -- on my other hand it says, 'BUY TOI... / Continue →

    Hot Wheels unveiled this full-size Darth Vader mask inspired car at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con. The car was built to promote the teensy $40 version they'll be releasing this fall. Damn, $40 for a Hot Wheels car? TIMES HAVE CHANGED. And so have I. Just kidding, I'm ... / Continue →

    This is a shot of the line to get into the 1983 San Diego Comic Con -- 31 years before the shit show it is today. Wait, where are all the costumes? Where are all the people in general? 1983 was already the 13th year of the convention? It's been happening since 1970? I did ... / Continue →

    This is a short video of General Grievous at the recent MCM Comic Con in London. The cosplayer does a great job of hiding his real arms and legs. Unless that actually IS General Grievous just PRETENDING to be a cosplayer dressed as General Grievous. Stranger things have happ... / Continue →

    This is the Pimp2-D2 action figure that will be for sale by Manly Art at this weekend's New York Comic-Con. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say HOLY SHIT THIS IS REALLY HIGH UP. Did I trick you? I'm actually at my desk. I'm going to go out on a limb here and say this... / Continue →

    Listen, I know I posted that Star Wars parkour yesterday, but this one is really good. Like, really, REALLY good. "Herher, what is it, parkour week on Geekologie?" YOU SHUT YOUR PIE-HOLE, SCALAWAG. This is a video of Chris Cromwell (plus runswell!) parkouring around Comic-Co... / Continue →

    This is a video of various well-dressed cosplayers spotted at Comic-Con set to some song called 'One In A Million'. Volume is optional, but not encouraged. I just took my last pain pills then fell down the stairs trying to catch the ice cream man before he passed my street. ... / Continue →

    I got bit by some gnarly spider last night and the skin is starting to deteriorate so I'm heading to the doctor, presumably to have my arm chopped off. In the meantime, here's a link to Norman Chan's annual Comic-Con gallery, with a whopping 864 images. So go check that out a... / Continue →

    I spy a Steve Jobs lookalike! WIRED magazine teamed up with the Stan Winston School and Legacy Effects to bring this 9.5-foot, 400-pound robot costume to this year's San Diego Comic-Con. And this is a video of Mythbusters' Adam Savage meeting the beast. When I meet it? A wa... / Continue →

    This a smattering of the 600+ cosplay photos Norman Chan from over at Tested.com took during this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con. I posted 25 random ones after the jump, but you should really go peruse the entire gallery. I just like, threw a dart at a dartboard and posted wha... / Continue →

    Note: Worthwhile larger shot HERE for more detail. Also on display at Comic-Con, LEGO has announced this upcoming Bag End Lord of the Rings playset, appropriately named 'An Unexpected Visit'. And speaking of unexpected visits -- did I tell you who showed up at my house last ... / Continue →

    Unveiled at this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con, this is the real-world version of Hyundai's Elantra Coupe Zombie Survival Machine (previously: the renderings). As we had suspected, it's definitely NOT the vehicle you want to be driving when the undead shit hits the fan. Me? ... / Continue →

    This are the cartoon depictions of the 15 people you'll see at every geek convention. Are they accurate? I have no idea -- the only convention I've ever been to involved heavy drinking and passing out in a hot car before the doors even opened. And did my friends leave me the... / Continue →

    Note: Yesterday's posts are slowly being repopulated throughout the day. GO GET YOU SOME. This is a homemade music video to P!nk's (what the -- when did you get a ! in your name -- was that always there? Kidding, I don't care) 'Raise Your Glass' which consists entirely of co... / Continue →

    This is a gallery of the cosplaying ladies from this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con. Per tradition, Norman from over at Comic Vine goes and takes a shit-ton of pictures and is kind enough to lend me some for your viewing pleasure. This year he really outdid himself with a whop... / Continue →

    Wizard, the long-running comic guide and magazine, has officially turned off its printing press, made the move to a publicly-traded company, and only plans on producing a digital version of the magazine in the future. Which, I think we can all agree, is a pretty weak move for ... / Continue →

    Apparently this Hot Wheels Invisible Jet toy began life as an April Fools' joke but I don't remember hearing about it because I don't even know if I remembered to take my vitamins this morning. At any rate, it became a Comic-Con exclusive and suckers lined up to pay $5 for the... / Continue →

    Seen in the top picture going for a four person sign-holding record (and proving there might actually be something to the whole "strength in numbers" thing after all), the Westboro Baptist Church's Comic-Con protest was met with some stiff opposition to say the least. Maybe Go... / Continue →
