3-D Monster; It's What All Fashionable Aussies Are Wearing...

I'm totally tooting my own horn here, but I am sooo excited that Urchin Books; a popular book/toy/clothing/art/video store in Marrickville, New South Wales Australia, is selling my very own 3-D Monster t-shirts! Actually, this is the second order as they sold out of the first one! Don't they look swell displayed on the rack?


The only sad part of this story is that I sell more shirts in Australia than in MY OWN FUCKING COUNTRY!!! So yeah, there's that. I guess I'll need to come up with a slick marketing campaign and some sort of catchphrase, huh? Perhaps something like this; "don't piss me off... BUY MY FUCKING SHIRTS!!" Yeah, I like the sound of that :-)


More Pics of The New Batmobile and Batman in COLOR!

We saw it from the back and covered in a tarp, Then the mid-section was seen but partly obscured by both smoke and some guy in a suit blocking the way. 

While said guy has now become the subject of the popular Sad Batman meme, two more unofficial photos have emerged via social media giving us a better look at the new look Batmobile to be seen in Zack Snyder's "Batman vs. Superman".

The first is from Blue Realm Studios' Facebook Page and was posted almost two days ago, showcasing what is claimed to be a "model sculpture" for the top of the vehicle.
The second one popped up on Instagram earlier today, this one a front on ground level shot of the car and with the wheels and chassis attached. I'm not sure... a little too dune buggy-ish and not bat-ish enough. 

Finally, here's a good side-by-side comparison of Affleck's Batman and "The Dark Knight Returns" Batman - pretty damn similar!

Sexy Cosplay: Power Girl Edition!

Okay guys, any geek worth his salt knows that Power Girl cosplay exists for one reason and one reason only; big 'ol boobies!

FINALLY! I Found a Display Cabinet!

I had great luck while yard-sailing this weekend; I scored this great display case with lighting for $10!!! The only defect is that the glass on the door is missing, but you can hardly tell as it simply looks like the glass is really, really clean. Ever since we moved to Portland, I've had most of my toy collection still boxed up, so it's great to be able to display them again. I still have the two shelves in the hallway with plenty of eye candy, and some of my collection is still boxed up, but I'm getting there! 

Feel free to email me pictures of how you display your own collection at threedmonster@yahoo.com and I'll be happy to include them in another post!

In Honor of The Release of X-Men: Days of Future Past...

I thought you might like to see the X-Men's first ever video appearance. It was waay back in 1966, and they appeared on an episode of the Sub-Mariner featuring more Marvel hero's than you can shake an ultimate nulifier at! Be sure to laugh at Dr. Dooms metal lips and Iceman's goofy-ass running!

Ben Affleck's Sad Batman Has a Shitload O' Memes!

Y'know, choosing a "first look" photo for an upcoming superhero blockbuster should be a lot like picking your child's name; make sure it's something people can't make fun of.













Batman vs Superman Has an Official Title and Logo!

Zack Snyder's upcoming ensemble superhero film finally has a title: Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. The film will see Henry Cavill reprise his role as Superman from Snyder's 2013 Man of Steel and Ben Affleck filling the role of Batman — who we got a first look at in costume just the other week. A number of other heroes and villains are set to turn up in the film, including Wonder Woman (Gal Gadot), Lex Luthor (Jesse Eisenberg), and Cyborg (Ray Fisher). Filming has already started for the movie, but it'll be a long time yet before you can watch it: it's set to open on May 6th of 2016.

So, is The New Batsuit Really One Color? Kevin Smith Says F**k NO!

Zack Snyder's reveal last week of Ben Affleck in the new Batsuit had the interwebs a'buzzin with praise and condemnation. Lots of slightly retarded fans thought that everything in the photo was a dull gray, not realizing that it was a monochrome photo. Luckily, Kevin Smith is here to set the record straight;
 "As you may remember, I saw a photo of the Batsuit many months ago, and many people asked online, 'Is that the picture you saw?' No, that is a very cool picture, but that is not the picture I saw. They put it on a fake rooftop, and they lit it up. But it was in color, and you could see every piece of detail. So I've seen some people online go, 'Why is this f***ing suit any different than the Chris Nolan Batsuit, it's all one f***ing color.' It's like, 'Dude, that's a monochrome photo. You know what that means, one chrome. ..."That's not a representation of what the suit looks like. So what the suit looks like, and I was always kind of keeping it quiet until they revealed it, but they've revealed it. And you can kind of see, and anybody that… you've seen some people take the picture and color it online. If you want to see what this f***ing suit looks like, you just go to Frank Miller's The Dark Knight Returns, go to the third book, Hunt the Dark Knight…it's the exact f***ing outfit he's wearing."

So, here's the suit with the color tweaks, and a pic of Bats from the third book of DKR (don't worry; girl Robin won't be in the film)

First Look: Trailer #2 For Marvel's Guardians of The Galaxy!


Man o man, the more I see of this the more excited I become, AND it comes out on my birthday! It may be a hard sell to mainstream audiences who've never heard of any of these characters, but I think it'll kick ass!


Who's Ready For More Giant Lizard Shennanigans?!?


First off, if you haven't seen Godzilla yet, get off yer ass and get to it! It was a life-altering experience akin to a spiritual awakening! Well, maybe not that good, but it's cool to see giant monsters duking it out. The main (and really only) complaint that I have heard was in reference to the limited screen time given to the king of all monsters. While I can see why they thought this, I felt that it was important to the story development to hold him back a bit, but that's just me. There's also a scene that will have fanboys everywhere writhing in geek-tastic ecstasy! 

That brings us to the latest news; Godzilla roared into theaters on Thursday night with a killer showing of $9.3 million from Thursday previews. That was added into the Friday gross of $38.5 million, which was on par with some of the other recent openers, but even with a slight drop on Saturday, it was still able to become the third movie to open with over $90 million in the past two months–following Captain America: The Winter Soldier and The Amazing Spider-Man 2–with an estimated $93.2 million take for the weekend. 

Because of this spectacular opening weekend for the film, Warner Bros. has confirmed that there will, indeed be a sequel! Legendary Pictures, which put up 75% of the money to make the film (Warner Bros. took care of the rest), is now Universal Pictures' partner, but Legendary and Warner Bros. will team on the sequel again. It is assumed that director Gareth Edwards would return to direct. While it's too soon to tell what the storyline will be for the sequel, I'm hoping it looks a bit like this;

Rememeber The 3-D Monster Van?

One of my biggest regrets is selling that awesome van. I only sold it because the engine blew and at the time we were planning on moving back to Alabama, so I really couldn't afford to sink $2000 + into it at the time. But as I was looking through Craigslist today for custom vans, I was reunited;

So, I figure $1000 for the van and approx $2500 for engine and repairs. Who wants to be a pal and float me $3500? I'll give you free advertising for a whole year! Plus, if any of you have forgotten, here is the design I mocked up for it;

  

3-D Monster: The Best In Pictures

Hey gang, I just realized something fun; my Google+ page has been compiling nearly every picture that I have ever posted on 3-D Monster! I rarely even look at my page, but I connect every 3-D Monster posting directly to it. Here's another fun fact; somehow I have over 12 million hits on my page!

 I did a bit of research, and apparently 16,000 hits is considered pretty damn good. I have absolutely no idea how this happened, because I'm close to only one million hits on 3-D Monster. Anyone have a clue why it's so high, and how can I turn those hits into dollars? I'll be happy to share! I've chosen a few choice pics from the page below, but you can see them all here

BATMOBILE-ORAMA

Getting a glimpse of the new Batman vs Superman Batmobile got me wanting more, so here is a collection of custom Batmobiles; the good, the bad, and the bat-ugly! See what I did there? 


 This one kinda looks like something that you would see in the old Speed Buggy cartoon. Fun car, though.


 This broke-ass batmobile just hurts my eyes...


 Very different take on the Dark Knight's whip - this is what I see Batman cruising in when he retires and moves to Miami. Probably has an AARP sticker on the window.


 This "Batsmart" car was actually created by George Barris; the creator of the best Batmobile ever; the 1966 Adam West Batmobile. Still sucks, though.


 This one made me throw up in my mouth a little. More like the Ghettomobile.


Very sleek interpretation of Michael Keaton's Batmobile built on a Corvette. Didya know that the 1970's Batmobile in the comics was a modified Vette? No shit, really!


 A more subtle but still really cool Batmobile. Kinda looks like a stretched out dune buggy.


 The design on this one isn't that great, but what it lacks in appearance it more than makes up in power and speed!


 From the looks of this one, it may be just big enough to seat a toddler. Incredible work, though!


 I have no idea what this one is built on, but I sure as Hell wish I could find a front view pic!


Wow... just, wow.


 Incredible Batman TAS Batmobile! I can't express how much I love this!!!


This one is pretty far out of left field, but it gets points for originality.


 I know, it's pretty crap-tacular, but something won't allow me to hate it.


Yes, it's just a new Mustang with red pinstripes and a bat symbol on the doors... but it's freakin' BAD-ASS!


Another Keaton inspired Corvette - not diggin' the big bat-symbol on the hood.


 Low rider Batmobile hot rod. A+++


 Hot rod Batmobile coupe. An INCREDIBLE variation of the 1950 Batmobile with just a hint of the 1966 one for good measure.

Remember the VW Mobile Bat-Lab toy by Mego in the 1970's? This is way cooler.
