“Blade Runner” custom LEGO minifigures give Harrison Ford a brick makeover


Posted by on

Forget about Alcon Entertainment‘s planned “Blade Runner” sequel. LEGO builder Legohaulic’s recently created LEGO minifigures are the coolest bit of “Blade Runner” mythology we’ve seen in a long time.

The set of eight minifigures include characters like Harrison Ford‘s Rick Deckard, Rutger Hauer’s Roy Batty, Edward James Olmos’s Gaff and Daryl Hannah’s Pris (nicely re-purposing the Harley Quinn head from a Batman lego set). Also worth noting, the use of a Lego Slave Princess Leia body to recreate Johanna Cassidy’s exotic-dancing replicant character Zhora is extremely inspired. Unfortunately you can’t get your hands on them unless you commission Legohaulic to create a set for you as well.

Legohaulic — real name Tyler — clearly has “Blade Runner” on the brain because he also created a light-up LEGO version of Decker’s vehicle, the Spinner, back in September. And yes, for all you LEGO nerds out there, the Decker minifigure is holding one of Brick-Arms‘ custom “Blade Runner” M2019 Blasters. We’re glad that Legohaulic kept everything authentic.

In case these “Blade Runner” LEGOs aren’t enough sci-fi for you, he also has uploaded specially created LEGO minifigs based on “2001: A Space Odyssey,” “Portal 2,” “Batman” and “Jurassic Park” to his Flickr page as well.

But despite the corny spin-offs, the Elm Street movies left psychic scars on a generation of horror fans. Before you catch IFC’s Nightmare on Elm Street movie marathon this Halloween, see how well you know the Freddy films.

Bob & David Are Back

Watch David Cross, Bob Odenkirk and Scott Aukerman in the Hilarious ‘With Bob & David’ Trailer

Catch David Cross in the return of Todd Margaret on January 7th at 10P on IFC.

Posted by on

David Cross (Todd Margaret), Bob Odenkirk (Better Call Saul) and Comedy Bang! Bang! host Scott Aukerman are back with the trailer for the long-awaited Mr. Show “non-reunion” reunion, W/ Bob & David.

The upcoming Netflix sketch comedy show reunites Bob and David with Mr. Show writers and performers John Ennis, Jay Johnston, Paul F. Tompkins, Brian Posehn and Mr. Hot Saucerman himself, Scott Aukerman. But this is not a Mr. Show reunion. In March, Odenkirk told Rolling Stone that W/ Bob & David is “a new sketch-comedy show featuring the writing and performing of the great and special Bob and David and please use those terms because it’s like [the] King of Pop — the Great and Special Bob and David.”

Still, Bob and David fans will notice that the new show tackles topics like time travel, police interrogations and eccentric tech wizards with the same absurdist wit that made Mr. Show a comedy classic. Also, lots of wigs. You can’t have a sketch show without wigs.

After you’ve binge-watched W/ Bob & David in November, be sure to catch David in the third season of Todd Margaret when it premieres Thursday, January 7th at 10P ET/PT on IFC. The first three episodes of the six-episode series air back-to-back on January 7th, with the remaining three episodes premiering the following week on Thursday, January 14th at 10pm ET/PT. Finally those cans of Thunder Muscle you’ve been hoarding for a rainy day will come in handy.

Carrie Brownstein Colbert

Carrie Goes Folk

Carrie Brownstein Debuted Her New Somber Folk Song on Colbert

Hear Carrie's new sound.

Posted by on

Carrie Brownstein stopped by The Late Show last night to talk to Stephen Colbert about Portlandia, Sleater-Kinney and, of course, her new memoir, Hunger Makes Me A Modern Girl, which is in stores now.

While she was waiting in the show’s green room, she announced her new career path as an interpreter of traditional English folk ballads.

After her very somber performance, Carrie sat down with Colbert to discuss whether or not she is “cool.” Oh, Carrie. If you’re not cool, there is zero hope for the rest of us.
