Darth Vader Runs for President of Ukraine

Amidst problems in Ukraine, the Ukrainian Internet Party seems to be having a bit of fun. They’ve selected Darth Vader as their official candidate in Ukraine’s May 25th presidential election. The party is known for its “theatrical public stunts,” but they’ve paid the $225,000 registration fee, and our favorite dark lord is a legitimate candidate.

Encased in black armour, with a black mask and cape, the party’s “Darth Vader” has been involved in several political actions in the country. In November 2013 he was carried by his Stormtroopers — the elite soldiers of the fictional galactic empire — to Odessa city hall where he declared himself mayor. According to local media reports he has also reportedly demanded a plot of land in the southwestern city to park his space ship.

“I alone can make an empire out of a republic, to restore former glory, to return lost territories and pride for this country,” Vader said in a party statement.

BaneCat is the Villain We all Need

It’s BaneCat! What a shrew little villain. It’s highly recommended that you don’t try to sell him to anyone else. 🙂

New Trailer for Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

A new trailer has been released for the upcoming Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles! Looks like a big budget adventure, hope it does well.

Though I’m not sure what to think of the CGI turtles. Something about the face looks off when he removes his mask. I guess it’s still too early to make judgements. We’ll just have to wait for the Turtles to rise from the sewers on August 8, 2014.

The city needs heroes. Darkness has settled over New York City as Shredder and his evil Foot Clan have an iron grip on everything from the police to the politicians. The future is grim until four unlikely outcast brothers rise from the sewers and discover their destiny as Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

This little guy dressed as Thor at the recent Indiana Comic Con 2014. Not surprisingly, he proved to be quite popular among the cosplayers, and everyone wanted a picture with him.

He poses with Superman, Spider-Man, Captain America, and many more. Doctor Who even tries to lift the hammer Mjolnir. Great photos! Glad to hear the con was a success.
