The HK-51 droid, a calculating and ruthlessly efficient assassination machine, in short, the most dangerous machine in the galaxy, will stand by your side and follow your commands in Star Wars: The Old Republic.
“Buried deep beneath the icy surface of Belsavis rests an army of the deadliest, most feared machines in the known galaxy. Thought to have been lost when an Imperial freighter was destroyed, they have recently been rediscovered by a group of renegade Sith Lords. Now both the Sith Empire and Galactic Republic seek to control these dangerous weapons for themselves. Those who are brave enough to venture into the wreckage will emerge with a powerful new ally.”
Check out the introduction CGI trailer to the droid from SDCC last week:
Comic-con saw lots of cool Avengers news and gamers didn’t miss out either. Ubisoft previewed the trailer for the upcoming motion game Marvel Avengers: Battle for Earth.
Featuring 20 different characters, including those currently seen in the Avengers movie – Iron Man, Hulk, Captain America, Thor, Black Widow and Hawkeye – along with other fan-favourite super heroes and villains from the Marvel Universe.
Available on the Wii U and Xbox Kinect this December, you’ll get to use motion to trigger unique super attacks and use special moves while playing with friends or against the AI.
…trailer. The movie obviously will satisfy your desire to be ruled but the new trailer released today won’t for all the Lokites and Hiddles fans. The mega-combo pack releases on September 25th and has lots of goodies inside.
But if that isn’t enough… there is more! Marvel have just announced that Avengers: Phase One will released in the near future. It will contain all six Marvel Studio films on Blu-ray: Iron Man, The Incredible Hulk, Iron Man 2, Thor, Captain America and The Avengers – with the latter three having 3D versions – as well as Phase One Archives. This will be one slick (and pricey) puppy at $219 RRP. More details will be released on July 15 at the closing day of Comic-Con. Check out this tasty trailer for it after the cut along with aforementioned Blu-ray trailer: More
As a big fan of Tumblr I’m always blogging images that stand out to me on almost any geeky subject. I will always try to find the original source though, sadly, the way that micro-blogging has evolved ownerships get removed along the way and you end up chasing sources down rabbit holes. Earlier this year I reblogged a photo of female Thor with an impressive costume – I was able to cite the photographer but it was quite a mystery as to who the cosplayer was. After the image received some 50-something reblogs I noticed a Tumblr repost comment from the cosplayer. How small the world is – I finally found my source! It was great to finally touch base and get talking so, without further ado…

How long have you been working on the Female Thor costume?
Before I debuted the costume in October of 2011, I worked on it for a good solid 2 1/2 weeks, with about 2-3 hours of work put in every other day. The majority of the time went into the head-piece, which was probably the most complicated aspect. It’s covered in a mixture of real feathers (chicken, turkey, and owl).
