Giant Mechs Take Over SDCC

The best always comes out for Comic Con since this is what everyone looks forward to all year. One of the best parts of Comic Con is the cosplay and the people over at Wired have taken it to a whole new level. Along with a bunch over other teams they built a 9 foot tall battle mech suit that looks as real as it can get. The way I understand it is there is actually a person inside there but if no one told me that I would think this thing was moving on its own or by remote control.

The whole thing took 24 days and about 2000 man hours to create. The detail in this suit looks amazing and the added voice and sounds seem like it could be very menacing if it were standing in front of you, and you just happened to be staring down the barrels of it’s mini gun arm. Anyways check out this awesome Battle Mech suit and be sure to keep an eye at for it if you in San Diego for Comic Con this week…Something tells me this guy would be hard to miss.


40 Foot Dragon Skull Appears on Beach


This is soooo awesome and totally reminds me of Skyrim after you valiantly defeat a menacing dragon that is endangering the lives of the towns people. In fact this would have been a great marketing tool for the game back when it first came out. However, it is actually a marketing tool for something a little different. The streaming service BlinkBox has season three of the series “Game Of Thrones” available for streaming on their service and thought this bad boy would be a great way to announce it. The actual Dragon Skull measures up to a whopping 40 feet and is placed on Charmouth Beach in Dorset England.

Apparently it was created over several months by three sculptors who we don’t know the names of. How it got to the beach is also unknown but I think this is pretty damn cool. I would have to think that it would be hard to get something like that down to the beach without it alerting the entire city. If there was some way to weather proof it I think it would be cool to just leave it there. I mean could you imagine the stories that would be told 20 years from now to the children who see it for the first time? Anyways check out these picture of the 40 foot Dragon Skull and click on the images to enlarge them.

So this video is a teaser for whatever the Amazing Spider-Man crew has planned for this years Comic Con. We get our first look at an actual scene from the sequel coming in 2014. Jamie Foxx looks decent and he definitely sounds menacing so those are all good signs. I swear they are going to show this entire movie before it’s even released into theaters. So, for those of you that will be going to SDCC this year make sure you stop by Hall H on Friday at 4pm to check out the Amazing Spider-Man 2 panel.
