Cookie Monster slayed by cosplayer. Sesame Street not amused. Do you agree the cosplayer looks similar to Helen Bonham Carter in Fight Club?
Gears of War: Judgement’s multiplayer will include free-for-all multiplayer.
This is according to Official Xbox Magazine who reckon they have the inside scoop.
If this is true, I’m pleased as I generally haven’t played to much Gears multiplayer but a Lone Wolf type mode would def interest me!
Cosplay Pictures from PAX 2012 Seattle
Penny Arcade commonly known as PAX is on right now at the Seattle version of the event. And what does PAX mean? Well, aside from a little bit of Halo 4 news, PAX means cosplay. Here’s some that was spotted by Gawker. I’m sure you’ll agree, the quality of these characters and their costumes is pretty amazing – check out the ladies (!?) from Zelda!

It’s hard to believe that Grifball has endured so well from it’s early days of forge in Halo 3 to become a full on entity in its own right. 343 Industries have announced at PAX that Grifball will have a dedicated Grifball mode.
343, you’re doing it right.
In other Pax news, multiplayer map Exile was revealed by way of a bit of Capture the Flag game play.
Halo 4 has a teaser for the Terminals that can be found in the game. If you don’t know, the Terminals are points within the game that give an insight in the greater mechanics of the Halo universe. Halo 3 has them which revealed the super AI battles featuring Mendicant Bias and Halo: Reach featured datasets which revealed The Authority.
Titled “Jul ‘Mdama,” the teaser lets you know you why the Covenant is heading towards the planet Requiem on which Halo 4 is largely set.
What did you think?
Who is Jul M’dama from Halo?
The recent reveal of the Halo 4 terminals might have a few people asking who is Jul ‘Mdama?
Very briefly Jul M’Dama is a sangheili shipmaster who commands a covenant fleet that will appear to have a place in the story of Halo 4. His back story can be found here.
The character has been covered in the recent Halo novels, The Thursday War and Halo: Grasslands.
His reveal in the Terminal highlights how he appears to have lead the Covenant to the planet Requiem in a grand quest to take the planet’s ‘treasures’.
As reported here at the Bat-Blog awhile back, the Mattel Toy Company has plans to release a special set of RETRO BARBIE AND KEN DOLLS dressed as Catwoman (Julie Newmar) and Batman (Adam West) from the 1966 TV Series. Now, when they say “retro” what they mean is that the dolls look like the vintage-style that was made back in the 1960′s. Here is a photo of the dolls that will be released later this year. We don’t have an exact release date right now but stay tuned to the Bat-Blog and as soon as we know, you will know.
By the way, this image shown here is also a BATMAN TOYS Wallpaper background you can use to brighten your Desktop, click on it for a larger version & please enjoy.

As one of the foremost experts on the physics of the universe, Neil deGrasse Tyson is one big nerd and he really flexes his nerd muscle through his Twitter account.
Earlier in the week, Neil deGrasse must have been watching the Avengers, or Thor, because of a special revelation he posted online that has had many of us pondering for quite some time. Using scientific methods, which most of us would have had an ice cream head ache over, and his knowledge of the building materials that went into the legendary weapon, Neil came up with a rough estimate of just how heavy Mjolnir is.
The astronomical science is one thing, so to simplify it for all us not-so-scientific people, he has graciously used elephants as a form of measurement. And thanks to some research from Blastr, we now know an average male African bush elephant weighs roughly 12,000 lbs. Random trivia fact for the day. You’re welcome. But how exactly did deGrasse figure all of this out without physically holding a hammer that technically doesn’t even exist?
Neil deGrasse Tyson is a god or he just uses his best judgement and makes up some random number while referencing a herd of elephants. Either way, I am not going to second guess a man that knows so much about astronomy.
There’s been a lot of Star Wars news and rumors going around lately, particularly with regards to the subjects of future stand-alone projects. Though they wouldn’t reveal much about what they expect for the future, writers Lawrence Kasdan (Empire Strikes Back) and Simon Kinberg (X-Men: Days of Future Past) did chat a bit about their upcoming involvement with the franchise.
Kasdan had this to say when asked about Episode VII:
They’re going to be fun. J.J. (Abrams)’s a great director for the first sequel. Perfect. We’re very happy to have him. The writers I’ve been working with – Michael Arndt, who’s going to write the sequel, and Simon Kinberg, who has, like me, been sort of consulting – they’re great. I’ve never really collaborated a lot, and I’ve never been a room with a bunch of writers thinking, “Well, what should this thing be?” It’s fun. It’s really fun. And J.J.’s a writer. Yeah, lovely guy. I’d met him but didn’t know him. But now I’m totally enamored by him. He’s really funny and so enthusiastic.
And Kinberg talked about what to expect in the future. Or rather he elected to not talk about it:
This is what I would say: as a fan, I wouldn’t want to know too much. I know that’s impossible because it’s not the ’70s or ’80s anymore, but part of what was so exciting about A New Hope for me was I was entering into a universe I didn’t know. Even in Empire, I was surprised by a twist I never would have seen coming. But it’s different nowadays. I understand the excitement, and I’m happy that people are interested, obviously. But I’d rather people have something left to discover when they go in.
And with the rumors of a Yoda-centered spin-off flying around, the next person whose voice needed to be heard was the original voice of Yoda himself, the almighty Frank Oz. He had the following to say with regards to the original puppet Yoda versus the new and improved CGI Yoda:
He’s in my heart. I know Yoda very deeply…The future of Yoda is likely in CGI, as he was rendered in “Attack of the Clones” and “Revenge of the Sith.” I think it depends on the story, but I think at this point you can’t go back to the puppet. The reason George [Lucas] did the CGI, which I supported, was that he wanted to tell a story that would have been hampered by the physical limitations of the puppet.
So yeah, not much new here folks. Rest assured we will get back to you when it finally comes time for someone to accidently leak something crucial about the films. And we’ll report on every rumor as well, but that’s why you love us, right?
Thanks to Collider for the heads-up.
After wandering from place to place for a time, Haku was found by Zabuza who recognized his talents and agreed to take him in as a tool. As a result, Haku becomes unquestioningly protective and loyal to Zabuza, as he found a purpose in life by being useful to his master. He ultimately gives his life in his mission, becoming a human shield to protect Zabuza from Hatake Kakashi’s Lightning Blade.
Beautiful cosplay! I’ve always sympathized with Haku’s storyline for some reason or other… Maybe every one of us are seeking for that purpose in our life? Thanks to Jeni for sending this!

After escaping from her abusive captors, Dizzy came under the protection of Testament, a Gear who had served under the Command Gear Justice. Testament fought off most of the bounty hunters who were after Dizzy, and if any managed to overcome him, they were quickly beaten back by the immense power of Dizzy herself. She was eventually defeated by the bounty hunter known as Sol Badguy, but he decided to spare her life, and the bounty fell to Kuradoberi Jam instead.
Cool cosplay! I like the blue hues, which I’m guessing were possibly added later on. Thanks again to Jeni for sending this in!

A young girl who was found amidst the burning fields of Ikaruga, Noel became the adopted daughter of the Vermillion family. It was because of her outstanding combat activity that she became a high-ranking member of the NOL using the Nox Nyctores revolver Arcus Diabolus: Bolverk. These guns do not fire actual bullets, but rather, inflicts damage by creating distortions in dimensional space.
Cute cosplay by Dekinut of Deviant Art! And she apparently wore this during Philippine’s Toycon 2011! Thanks to Lauren for sending this in!

At 4 o’clock that midnight I found a four-leaf clover, I was impressed
Three legged crow, upon the roof it ghastly watches us
Twins eternally cleanse their bodies with oil, faintly emitting a scent
Organic monosomy, all alone

It might be a little early for our weekly Unknown Feature, but this is a crossover anyway and I thought this photo needed to be featured as soon as possible.
This was taken by Kira Hokuten during the Philippine Toy Convention 2012. I know Alodia Gosiengfiao is cosplaying Fate/Extra’s Saber, but I’m not sure who Sarah Geronimo is cosplaying as. It’s funny that from this angle, they look like sisters! I thought this was a photo of Alodia and Ashley at first until I read the description on Facebook.
Got a better idea? Thanks to Ernz for sharing this!
EDIT: Thanks to Keneth for letting me know that this is Sarah Geronimo’s alternate ego, “Super Sarah G.”!

To where am I vanishing…?

Well, she looks like Flandre Scarlet from Touhou Project to me, but the hair color’s definitely wrong. And I know Flandre has a red vest paired with her red skirt, not a full dress like this one.
I thought the Scarlets might have another sister, but I only found Flandre and Remilia. So if you guys have a better idea who she’s cosplaying as or if you agree that she’s probably Flandre, please do post your thoughts in the comments section. Thanks again to Jamie for sending this in!
EDIT: Thanks to for confirming she’s Flandre Scarlet from Touhou Project!

When Megumi escaped from Takeda’s mansion, she ended up in a gambling house where Sanosuke and Kenshin were playing dice. She then asked for their help, and later accompanies them back to the Kamiya dojo. Kaoru was furious that Kenshin brought a female stranger to her home, and Megumi decided to play the flirt, making several advances to Kenshin.
You have no idea how excited I am over this movie! I think the entire cast will do a pretty good job and these sneak peak photos are proof of that! Thanks to Mike for sharing this!

After Shampoo learned about Ranma’s curse, she could not kill or marry him and decided to return home, heartbroken. As punishment for her failure, her great-grandmother Cologne brought her to Jusenkyo for retraining. During her lessons, her lack of concentration made her fall into the “Spring of Drowned Cat”. She was then cursed to turn into a cat whenever she’s doused with cold water. Unfortunately, cats are the one thing Ranma fears most, and Shampoo blames him for this status.
She’s so cute! I think Shampoo is my favorite character from the series. I mean, it’s really hard not to like her! Thanks again to Jane for sending this in!

A thief and pickpocket who possesses skills to analyze the slightest changes in climate and draw sea charts, Nami was forced to become a subordinate of the fishman Arlong, the man who killed her guardian Bellemere. When she realized Arlong was working for the Marines to cover his tracks, Nami turned on him and Monkey D. Luffy, along with his crew, defeated Arlong and freed Nami as well as the entire village from his tyranny. Nami joined the Straw Hat Pirates as their navigator in order to fulfill her dream of writing the complete map of the Grand Line.

While Remilia is usually self-centered and somewhat bratty, it is possible to become her friend, but most humans and youkai alike prefer to stay away her. Her name, appearance, house, and clothing all indicate she is European in origin and for some unknown reason, emigrated to Japan many years ago. Remilia claims to be a descendant of the world’s most notorious vampire, Count Vlad epe Dracul, but this is nothing more than a lie.
Stunning cosplay by Tsugumi-san from Deviant Art!
I love the addition of the shadow “wing”. Thanks to anon for sharing this and to Nic Yoon for the awesome photography!

I really love this week’s Unknown Cosplay. Red and black with a little white always makes a uniform look so cool, especially with the gold trimmings!
To be honest, she looks like she could be part of the security team in Japan’s 77th Comiket, but why the gun holster without a gun? Maybe she’s holding it behind her back?
In any case, if you know who she’s cosplaying as, feel free to comment below! Thanks to Trina for sending this in!
