In case you haven’t been paying attention, the Star Wars Celebration is going on in Anaheim right now. With the new EPVII coming out soon all the nerds are wetting themselves waiting for peaks at what this new installment has in store. Last night we showed you a leaked pic of the new Stormtrooper uniforms and there’s rumors of a new trailer releasing today. Until we see it, we’ll have to settle for this new promotional art for the film. Kylo Ren is looking like a total bad ass in these shots. Hopefully the hype won’t be a let down like what happened with Darth Maul back in the day.
With the popularity of Skylanders and Disney Infinity, it was only a matter of time before another group tried to get in on the action and after this morning’s leak, we know who the next contender is!
For the past couple of days there have been some teaser images leaked showing of Batman, Gandalf and The Lego Movie’s Wyldstyle tagged with “#BreaktheRules.” Then this morning, a teaser trailer dropped. The portal shown in the trailer is a match to the portal in the images which confirmed a lot of suspicions. Then came the official press release (see below). With this new line it looks like Lego will be mashing all the series lines together Harry Potter, LoTR, DC, Marvel, everything playing together at the same time!
Toys R Us confirmed the sets will be released in September 27th and the base starter pack for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PS4 and Wii will retail for $99. Included in the starter pack are the Toy Pad, some bricks, three miniatures including Batman, Gandalf and Wyldstyle from the Lego Movie, as well as a Lego Batmobile. There will be a full line of add on characters and expansion packs so get your wallet out and make some room next to your console, this looks like it’s going to be awesome.
And here’s the official trailer, which dropped this morning:
Are you running out of ideas on what to do with Easter Eggs this year? Luckily our friends at HalloweenCostumes.com have our backs. They’ve come up with some pretty nifty egg decorations to dress up your boring Easter Eggs as awesome Age of Yolktron Eggvengers! The whole crew is here, but you’ll probably need an ostrich egg to make the Hulk.
If you thought that The Avengers: Age of Ultron premiere was the the only Avengers related release you had to look forward to in the next few weeks, boyyyy were you wrong- or should we say mistEGGen! We have something arguably more eggscelent, more eggstravagant, more eggsceptional! Did you guess that it’s egg-related? Well you must be an egghead because you’re right! We created a dozen printable Avenger Easter Egg costumes that are simply…to dye for. We have dubbed this collection Eggvengers: Age of Yolktron. Get ready for some ova-the-top egg puns, and read on!
For the release of our new favorite movie ‘Zombeavers’, we had the opportunity to sit down with the stunning actress Cortney Palm. We’re not really an ‘interview’ type site so when the chance to speak with her came up, Tracy our resident Canuck decided to take the wheel since she claims she’s ‘the more articulate one of the group’.
Tracy: “Thank you for taking the time to speak with us here at StrangeBeaver. I’d like to start out by saying I’m Canadian, so I’m a little biased. I mean, my beaver IS aggressive, but it IS very polite. Were any beavers exploited in the making of this movie?”
Cortney: “No ‘actual’ beavers no. Maybe Lexi’s (‘Jenn’) when she was sitting on the table. It was her first movie so she’s just sitting there with her legs spread eagle for like an hour and I was like why don’t you get down and cover yourself up or something. Other than that no beavers, they were all puppets so it’s all kosher.”
They just hit their goal. $2million in one day is pretty impressive and shows the fans want this!
Yesterday the gang from comedy team Broken Lizard took to Reddit to pitch their idea for Super Troopers 2 and to plug their IndieGoGo campaign. It seems that big studios don’t see the value that this project presents so they need some seed money to get the ball rolling. In almost 24 hours they’re only 20% away from their $2million goal. We’re on the hook for a poster (I wish we could get a shirt in the film like we did with The Worst Year of My Life), so if you want to get in on the action check out their campaign!
