LEGO Officially Approves Voltron set for Production

Last year we told you about one LEGO builder who submitted an awesome Voltron Lion design to get approved for production. If you missed that story then just click here to get the details and see the image gallery. Well almost a year to the day Voltron fans and builder len_d69 got some pretty awesome news. The submission required 10,000 fan votes to be passed on to the next stage of the approval process. Now after receiving the required amount of fan votes, the Danish toy company has announced that it will officially take this amazing Voltron set into production and it will eventually be available for purchase to the public. I don’t know about you guys but this will definitely be one set that I have to own. 

Voltron Season 3 Official Trailer

The new Voltron series on Netflix has been one of, if not the best renditions of the classic 80’s cartoon that has ever been made… and that includes the original. There have been 2 exciting seasons of the series so far and it looks like things are going to get even more intense in season 3. So far I have loved this series and so have my kids. I tried going back and watching some of the original series and in my opinion it just doesn’t hold up very well, especially when you have this to compare it to. That being said I can’t wait for season 3 to be released on Netflix especially after watching the official trailer. I have posted it below for your viewing pleasure so be sure to check it out!  

Harsher Punishments For “Bad Behavior” In Overwatch

One thing I can’t stand in multiplayer matches are people that go out of their way to piss other players off. Whether it’s through griefing, cheating, or just plain talking too much shit. Unfortunately cheating and trolling are a part of any multi-player game and Overwatch is no exception. However, Overwatch developers Blizzard has stated that they will now start administering harsher punishments for players who exhibit what they consider “bad behavior.” Not only that but they have announced that the reporting system will finally be brought over to the PS4 and Xbox One. Personally I think this is a good thing for those of us who like to play the game and have some friendly competition. 

Pacific Rim 2: UPRISING Official Teaser

So like most of you out there we here at Nerdgasm Needs were not able to make it to Comic Con International this year, but that doesn’t mean that we can’t still enjoy some of it’s perks. For example, we still get to see the first official teaser trailer for Pacific Rim 2: Uprising on the same day it was revealed at Comic Con. In this teaser trailer we get our first look at John Boyega all suited up and ready to pilot his Jaeger who we can only assume to be the new and improved Gypsy Avenger. Not only that, but we also get a good look at the new batch of Jaegers that will be joining the fight for survival against the Kaiju.

Possible Directors found for Mega Man Movie

This is honestly the first that I have even heard about a possible Mega Man movie in the works. Apparently back in 2015 it was announced that 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment would be taking over development on a movie based on the popular video game franchise. Personally I think Mega Man would be better suited for an animated movie series or Netflix show but you know Hollywood…”Where ever there is money to be made” is their motto. Well here we are 2 years later and it looks like we are very close to having both a writer and director for this movie project. However, I am a bit surprised to hear who the front runners are. 

Anime Fidget Spinners

This awesome video just goes to prove that all you need to do to make something cool and exciting is turn it into an anime. Fidget spinners are the latest toy craze for kids and some adults. I’ll admit that I have dabbled a bit and my kids have them as well. There are however, some people out there that think fidget spinners are going to be the fall of society. Honestly, I think we can all agree that this fidget spinner anime is just plain entertaining. Anime Fidget Spinners comes from the Corridor YouTube channel and is pretty hilarious. I definitely recommend giving it a watch and sharing it with your friends.
