This Homemade Star Wars Landspeeder Pet Bed Is Totally The Cat’s Pajamas

star warsWhen I was a kid, I had a bunk bed and then a normal bed, and then my parents tossed their waterbed before I could step in and lay claim. (Like the 1970s pimp that I am?) Any trip to the furniture store always takes me back to childhood, seeing racecar beds and spaceship beds and the like. But in order to get the coolest bed of all, I apparently should have grown up as a cat instead of a human. May I jealously present the world’s first (I presume) homemade Star Wars Landspeeder cat bed.

Crafted by the amazingly creative minds at Roxy’s Dream, these guys make a ton of pet-related furniture and accessories, and this is easily the greatest bed they’ve made yet. Completely one of a kind, the Cat Speeder is going for around $600, to make up for all the work that went into it. As you can imagine, Roxy’s Dream isn’t a mass-production factory or anything.


Pacific Rim Fans, Now You Can Own Every Onscreen Jaeger In Toy Form

Even though it was something of a box office dud in the States, we loved Pacific Rim here at GFR. Giant mechs tussling with giant monsters — what’s not to like? But even if you were lukewarm on the film itself, the design work was stellar, and perfectly suited to expanding your toy collection. So far we’ve seen some awesome Pacific Rim toys, but if you’re a fan who’s been stocking a toy shelf with NECA’s amazing toy recreations of the film’s Jaegers, crack open that wallet because more are on the way in the new year. Check out NECA’s new visual guide to their Pacific Rim toy line below. You can click the image for a larger version.



Here’s Your First Look At The Jurassic World Lego Set

jurassic world legoOne of the most anticipated movies of 2015 is Colin Trevorrow’s reboot-ish sequel Jurassic World, and one of the ways that people love to experience movies is in small plastic block form. So it goes without saying—even though I’m saying it—that the upcoming Jurassic World LEGO set is going to make many a fan’s tiny dino dreams come true next year. We now know what at least part of the set will look like, as the picture above shows off a wild scene full of snapped-together danger.

There’s a lot to take in here, although it’s unclear just how much of this scene will be released for public consumption. We’ve got the dinosaurs for sure, and Chris Pratt’s Owen is definitely getting one. We can also presume that B.D. Wong’s Dr. Henry Wu, seen up by the spotlight, will be in there. But what about the helicopter and the building where Wu is standing? Maybe somebody made a LEGO version of the trailer that I can play with if this set doesn’t deliver settings.


Watch This Promo For The Walking Dead Midseason Premiere

After another crazy, heartbreaking midseason finale, The Walking Dead is in the middle of its annual hiatus. As popular as it’s ever been, the return is a highly anticipated affair, and AMC just released this new promo for the next episode, which shows off some fresh footage and hints at the new direction for the group of zombie apocalypse survivors.

Heads up, we might get into some spoilery talk beyond this point if you’re not caught up on season 5 of The Walking Dead.


Star Wars Is Getting This Web Series Before The Force Awakens

star warsIf you’re reading this, I’ll just go ahead and assume you’re one of the millions of people around the world whose anticipation for Star Wars: The Force Awakens knows no bounds. Disney is looking to capitalize on rampant fandom with a new series of web shorts that they’ll put out over the next year to make damned sure every organism on the planet is aware of this massive tentpole.

Sadly, this won’t be a spinoff series or anything along the lines of Star Wars Rebels. These shorts will instead focus on the Star Wars universe as a whole, in a background information kind of way. While there are not a lot of details are out there, Bloomberg reports at least two areas of subject matter that will be tackled are fashion and games. You want to know how to make a robe that looks like one a Jedi would wear? How about learning to cut wood with lightsabers? Maybe this series will show you, but probably not.


Frankenstein Vs. The Mummy Trailer Is A Bunch Of Bloody Ridiculousness

Crossover monster flicks go all the way back to the days of Universal’s classic franchises, which even snuck in Abbot and Costello on occasion. Today’s cinemascape is full of mash-ups of all shapes and sizes, and director Damien Leone’s sophomore effort, Frankenstein vs. The Mummy, probably won’t make anyone’s top ten lists in 2015, but it looks like ridiculous fun nonetheless. Check out the first trailer below.
