Welp, Spider-Man really is far from home now

Because Sony is breaking ties with Disney and taking the Webhead back after failing to reach an agreement.

Holy forking shirtballs, look at this EPIC model of Deep Space Nine MADE ENTIRELY OUT OF LEGO

 Just at this beast!

This work of art was made by a chap named Adrian Drake and took 75k LEGO bricks and two years to build. That's way, way, way, waaaaaay more dedication than I could ever muster. I would have given up at 20 bricks and three hours. I'm assuming a lot of Redbull was also involved in Drake's herculean efforts. To see more pictures, be sure to hit up Drake's Flickr here.

And this folks, is why I have a LEGO tag.

This could have been Jurassic Park if Steven Spielberg hadn't been a coward

I only vaguely remember Dino-Riders and if I ever win the lottery, I'm buying as much of the toys as I can find because it's always looked awesome as hell!

That's nice cosplay there, Ricochet

A rather amusing thing happened at WWE's August PPV, Summerslam.

Pro-wrestler and obvious geek Ricochet showed up for his match against United States Champion AJ Styles dressed as DC Comic's Nightwing. He's hardly the first wrestler to cosplay (go look up Leva Bates), but this outfit is on point. He's also one of the few wrestlers (and probably people, period) who could move like Nightwing.

It's a shame that he didn't go with the "disco" costume.

And if you're wondering, the costume didn't help Ricochet in the match, as he lost to Styles. It was also apparently a one-off thing, because he didn't wear it last night, which is a shame.
