Nostalgia Packs a Real Punch

As a kid, G.I. Joe was the first cartoon series I was really into. Hasbro road that pony all the way to a huge profit from my parents, who were kind enough to buy me pretty much every G.I. Joe figure ever made.

Now, we ready for the next generation. Thank goodness others in my generation have been put into positions to be able to create shows like the above G.I. Joe: Resolute, which, by the way, has nothing to do with the less-than-promising summer movie G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.

Anyway, G.I. Joe: Resolute debuts on this Friday, April 17. It’s set to air in ten, five-minute episodes on the website, with the entire set to air with a ten-minute finale on April 25 at midnight on Cartoon Network.

Here's some footage from last year's San Diego Comic-Con that gives more of the feel of the series... Yo, Joe!

The Enterprise Project

With J.J. Abrams’ Star Trek coming out on May 7 (well, showings at 7 pm local time), Paramount Pictures sent out some U.S.S. Enterprise models made by Quantum Mechanix to various artists and designers around the country to detail as they saw fit. One of the writers over at Gizmodo was sent a model and produced the model above, which is where I saw the link to the rest of the models.

There are 30 total models in all, which can be seen here. Here are some of my favs:

Geek Chic

If I had an iPhone, this would be the case/wrapper I'd want for it:

Nothing sez "old school gamer" better than a Nintendo Game Boy iPhone case/wrapper. Found in Japan here.

Guitar Hero: Final Four Edition

I'm willing to bet money that none of these guys has ever played Guitar Hero. Still, people do surprise...
