Back to the Future, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Ghostbusters, Batman ’66 and of course Dr. Who are franchises with very memorable vehicles for the main protagonists to get around in, no one is questioning that.
But Nerd B. is asks us to imagine what kind of shadowy menace or criminal mastermind must have arrived from the spirit world of the past or future that all of these heroes must band together to form a new type of Voltron who in this case is the ultimate Defender of the Nerd-verse?

Besides being a wonderful illustration it also happens to be a T-shirt that you can pick up over RedBubble.com. A big thanks to the Intergalactic Geek Alliance for the heads up on this bit of fan art!
Do you think you know evil? Artist Tom Krohne does! He knows it so well that he’s put together some wonderful art of the very best (!) that evil has to offer. Featured here are some of my favourites – The Foot Clan above, Mumm-Ra and the Evil of Third Earth below and the Minions of Skeletor below that.
Head on over to Tom’s Etsy shopfront to see more of the series including The Kaiju Forces of Good, the Evil Horde, The Snake Men of Eternia and The Least Likely Suspects featuring more obscure characters such as Cy-Kill, Murky Gloom and Miles Mayhem!
Have you ever dreamed of being someone different? Well, of course you have, you were a kid once, right?
These paintings from artist Craig Davison capture what it is to be a child dreaming of being someone else, and I think they are wonderful.
I had the same dreams, I wanted to be Batman, I wanted to be in a galaxy far, far away. And I’m sure that if someone painted the images in my head from those glorious days of childhood, the pictures might well look like these!
Check our the artist website for more great images including the children who dream of being Musketeers, Cowboys, Monsters, Secret Agents and Super Heroes.
The awesome artwork above is the cover image for issue 12 of 80’s animation magazine, cereal:geek. Go check out the website for more about the magazine and to order any of the 16 issues created so far.

I was playing TMNT on XBLA the other night and it really got me in a Turtles kind of mood. After I finished playing I watched the original movie and then went to sleep dreaming about all those wonderful Turtle tie-in products that filled my belly in the 1980s and 1990s. When I woke up in the morning, this new 8-bit version of the Turtles theme had been uploaded by Peachy. I am pretty sure Peachy has cameras hidden in my house…which makes me kinda nervous, but on the other hand, I cannot argue with results. Turtle Power!
I had Turtle Fever in the late 80s and Early 90. Just like most people I could not get enough of these pizza scarfing green guys. I even owned a VHS copy of The Making of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Behind the Shells. I was feeling kinda Turtle-y this weekend, so I pulled out my trusty copy and tried to play it. Sadly it got shredded (I blame Shredder) after 3 minutes.
To honor the tapes memory and to commemorate my ordering of a new one, here is the first couple of minutes of The Making of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Behind the Shells.
