5 YR OLD ACTING BRUCE LEE'S NUNCHAKU SCENE

ROSS (NOW SOPHIA) CAMPBELL REVEALS SHE IS TRANS


Her art is bananas and I highly recommend her kickass 'GLORY' run, now available in a single oversized hardcover! Her issues of IDW's current 'Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles' were also pretty sweet! I hope she hits the convention circuit in the future.


via Digital Spy:

Comics creator Ross Campbell has come out as trans and will now go by the name Sophie Campbell.

The Jem and the Holograms artist explained that her transition is the reason she has been absent from recent conventions.


"It's time to stop hiding," wrote Campbell on her blog. "I'm transgender and over the past year i've been transitioning and I'm sick of keeping it all a secret.

"I'm on hormones now so i figured now is the time to come out. I'm going by Sophia but Sophie for short.

"I don't really feel proud or confident or anything, it's a nightmare, but maybe I'll get there one day."

Campbell added on Twitter that her transition has been the reason for her lack of public appearances, and that she does not expect to appear at any events for the "foreseeable future".



Campbell is the creator of Wet Moon and collaborated with Joe Keatinge on Image Comics' acclaimed Glory reinvention.

IDW launched Campbell and Kelly Thompson's Jem and the Holograms #1 on March 25.

RIP GRACE LEE WHITNEY


GRACE LEE WHITNEY passed away last friday at the age of 85.  Ms Whitney was well-known, and loved, by fans for her portrayel of YEOMAN JANICE RAND on 'Star Trek: The Original Series'.


She also reprised her role in 'Star Trek: The Motion Picture' (as Transporter Officer), in 'Star Trek IV: They Voyage Home' (where she had been promoted to Chief Petty Officer), and in 'Star Trek VI: The Undiscovered Country' (as a Communications Officer on Sulu's USS Excelsior). She also made a brief appearance on an episode of 'Star Trek: Voyager'.


Even though she was only on the show for 8 episodes, Grace Lee Whitney stands out as one of the major characters in the Star Trek franchise.


Her family stated that her "preference would be to be remembered as a 'successful survivor of addiction." Whitney was a recovering alcoholic and drug addict and had reportedly spend the last 35 years of her life helping others with addiction problems, including volunteering at women's correctional facilities. 

In 2011, Whitney described her life as a happy -- and sober -- grandmother living on a 30-acre property near Yosemite National Park. "[My son] Jonathan built a home down at the end of my property, where he lives with his family, including my grandchildren," Whitney said. "They're going to take care of me as I move through life to my home in heaven. But right now I take my grandchildren to school and cart them around, and I'm of maximum service to them... I also line dance one night a week and I go to the gym three days a week. So, my life is happy, joyous, free, sober and saved, and a lot of fun, too. I have a lot of fun."

WORKING REPLICAS OF LEGO COMPUTERS


via Today:
These working LEGO computers are meticulously crafted to resemble the originals, and not a piece is wasted. The nubs on the top of the bricks are volume controls, directional inputs and functional buttons of all kinds.
The phone is a real phone, with a huge 1x2 brick as the receiver, and that wavy line you see above is an actual oscilloscope. That particular brick is part of a series of audio effects and synthesizers that fit together (naturally) like LEGO bricks.


Hultén is a fan of retro video games, as well, so the computer bricks are loaded with Atari and Nintendo classics playable with the controller brick.

NICE STAR WARS FAN ART BANNERS

*thanks, Scott W!

CYCLOPS WAS RIGHT


I don't mind this new costume, except that its too similar to Racer X and therefore too unoriginal for my tastes....

However, Cyke would look sweet next to Magik, Emma & Magneto in there current Uncanny X-Men costumes. 

*(yes, I know within 'Uncanny X-Men' Magneto wears the WHITE version, but I'd want the BLACK version on the shelf alongside the others)

And who wouldn't want a Goldballs figure by Kotobukiya?!


THE SADDEST ORNAMENT


"Ship... safe?"

How did I not know they made this? Well it will be on my tree this year, I promise you that!

NFL HELMETS - MARVEL STYLE

These are awesome and way better than the Star Wars helmets, IMO. I would have preferred the Chargers be something else than The Sentry, though... perhaps Electro? Shrug, its all great. Well done, Dad Guy!
