Giant Robot Storms San Diego Comic Con 2013
It took the mighty minds and resources of WIRED, YouTube, Stan Winston Studios, Legacy Effects, and Conde Nast Entertainment to create an insanely detailed, one-of-a-kind, 9 foot 9 inch Mech with four arms to usher in the 2013 San Diego Comic Con. And who better to announce it than Adam Savage, of Tested and Mythbusters. It is ready to blow your mind. And coming soon to YouTube’s Geek Week … a huge mini-series showing how this colossus was built.
The stuff they don’t want you to know about Unicorn Meat.
G.I. Joe – 8 Bit Cinema!
G.I. Joe: Retaliation retold via old-school 8-bit (& a little 16-bit game tech.
