I’m ready to celebrate all things Star Trek as I count down the days for the premier of Star Trek: Discovery on CBS Access. 3Doodler has been inspired with their Star Trek Crew Edition Pen sets that are a love note to the original Star Trek series and Star Trek: The Next Generation. They are available for a limited time for only $99.99 and Sulu cool! Even George Takei is looking to doodle a few Vulcan ears for himself!
The videos make it look like someone with two left thumbs like myself can live out my fantasy to seek new worlds!
You can also buy the Create Star Trek Project Kit for $24.99 that has a special Star Trek Project Guide. The kit projects include Vulcan ears, Klingon forehead and Star Trek & Star Trek: TGN Enterprises ships too! Trekkies will love the 3Doodler Star Trek Crew Edition Pen sets! What a great idea for people who already have the 3Doodler pens to live out Trekkie dreams with these How-to-Do it patterns! This is so bringing me back to my childhood.

I used to bullseye womp rats in my T-16 back home. They’re not much bigger than two meters. – Luke, Star Wars: Episode IV A new Hope
Better keep Luke away from the new Star Wars Death Star Grill available for pre-order from TheFowndry for £99.99 (estimate $142.54 US) or he just might blow it up with a few of his rebel pals! <guffaw> This grill is for the carnivore AND vegetarian grill fan or just a Star Wars fanboy/fangirl that must own a Death Star the can fit in your home or apt patio area. Just make sure that the rebels don’t make off with Princess Leia before your down with the interrogation! I think this looks almost TOO good to use and would look great in my living room full of geek collectibles!
What will you cook in the Death Star? Let me know in the comments below and maybe I’ll swing by for a BBQ cookout!

That’s no moon… It’s the sun! And if it’s hovering over the house it means barbecue season is upon us. But don’t settle for your run-of-the-mill sputniks, dazzle your guests and terrorise the outer rim planets with the Death Star BBQ.

Just keep an eye out for X-wings.

This is a Geek Gift to be promised over the holiday season since it will not be released until April but it’s one gorgeous gift for any Star Wars or Al Williamson fan. IDW will be releasing the late artist Al Williamson’s Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back stories in 2016. The collection will include issues #39 – #44 of the monthly Marvel Star Wars Comic, Star Wars #50, #98 and the Star Wars: Return of the Jedi mini series will be included.
The Artist’s Edition will be 160 pages in hardcover (14×21) perfect for display or just for someone’s collection of art books.
“Al loved drawing Star Wars,” said Williamson’s wife, Cori Williamson. “It’s a science fiction swashbuckler, the kind of story that really appealed to his sensibilities. As a lover and collector of classic comic-book and comic strip art, I think he would have been thrilled to see his work presented in this format.”
George Lucas commented after Williamson’s passing in 2010, “I was thrilled to be able to have Al depicting those early extended Star Wars adventures for the comic books and newspapers. In capturing the actors who portrayed the characters, he brought the feeling of the films to the page as few other artists have been able to do.”
You may not know Al William’s name but if you love comic books/graphic novels you’ve seen his work starting back in 1950 with EC Comics. In the 1960s he took Alex Raymond’s classic comic strip creation Flash Gordon to the comic book with his iconic reimagining. He also worked on comic strips that included X-9: Secret Agent Corrigan and the Star Wars newspaper strip. His work earned him an Eisner Award and he was inducted into the Will Eisner Comic-Book Hall of Fame in 2000.
“The collaboration between IDW and Marvel has produced some of the most exceptional collections of reprinted original comic book material ever to be offered,” says Marvel SVP Sales & Marketing DavidGabriel. “Al Williamson’s Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back Artist’s Edition of the original Marvel Comics film adaptation is a brightly glowing star within the galaxy of immaculate Star Wars content.”
The Bob’s Burgers Burger Book Written by Loren Bouchard and The Writers of Bob’s Burgers, Contribution by Cole Bowden
This is the perfect gift for any Bob’s Burgers (Fox) or just burger fan that is available to order or pick up at brick and mortar bookstores. I was able to chat with creator and executive producer Loren Bouchard and executive producer Jim Dauterive at San Diego Comic Con this past summer where they mentioned the book release (sadly SOMEONE turned my mic off <boo hoo> so no audio). I recommend giving them the book with either a gift certificate to a new burger joint or with cooking implements, buns/bread and gift certificate for the grocery store or butcher to buy good beef or make vegetarian with beef substitute so that they try recipes themselves!
But it’s always a blast to talk with the the team and cast of my favorite adult/family friendly animated series.

HBO® and Brewery Ommegang to re-release first two beers in popular Game of Thrones® collaboration has the PERFECT gift for the GOT Fan and Ale/Stout Connoisseur!
Brewery Ommegang & HBO show Game of Thrones – Iron Throne Blonde Ale and Take the Black Stout
It’s the rerelease of the first two brews in the collaboration series not seen since King Joffrey’s wicked reign! This is a great addition for anyone who wants to play the Game of Thrones aka who will rule the Seven Kingdom. Brewery Ommegang‘s beer finder will show retail and bar locations by zip code when the beers come to market.
Iron Throne Blonde Ale has a slightly hazy golden amber hue. The head is full and fluffy. The finish is crisp, backed by a touch of spice and hops. The aroma is a bit grassy with a hint of lemon fruitiness from the lemon peel. The taste is lightly malty, rounded by honey malt sweetness. Iron Throne Blonde Ale is 6.5% ABV.
Take the Black Stout is deep black in hue, with a full tan head. Aromas include dark chocolate, caramel malt, earthy hops, and a touch of fruitiness. Tastes include chocolate, dark coffee, and rich malt character. The beer has light, balanced roastiness aroma and taste. The clean hop bitterness converges with a slight woody character and spiciness. The finish offers sweet malt character giving way to spicy, earthy, hop bitterness. Take the Black Stout is 7.0% ABV.
This is a major treat since Iron Throne Blonde Ale was released in 2013 and brewed at only 25% of the volume of the most recent beer the Three-Eyed Raven, which hit stores this spring timed to Season 5 of the show. Bottle shops across the country sold out in days, while bars poured through kegs in hours. Take the Black Stout was brewed at twice the volume of Iron Throne and still sold out quickly. Fans who missed out on both of these popular brews, and those who can’t wait to try them again, will finally have a chance this fall.
“We had no idea what the reaction to a Game of Thrones beer would be when this all started,” said Bill Wetmore, Marketing Director for Brewery Ommegang. “We were blown away by the runaway success of these first two beers and are very excited to give loyal fans another chance to enjoy them.”
