Humpback Whales Not Included
Hey, remember when Kirk and Spock had to travel around ’80s San Francisco dressed like elderly lesbians and went looking for whales? Then you remember the generally loved Star Trek IV: Free Willy, or whatever the hell it was called (I’m not a fan. A whale killed me dad. sue me). Diamond Select is producing this two-pack of Kirk n’ Spock in their killer fashions, due in April. Can me crazy, but I prefer my science fiction films to not be spent whale-hunting in the present day. (Via Action-Figure)

Under his tenure Topless Robot was covered by Gawker, Wired, Defamer, New York magazine, ABC News, and others, and his articles have been praised by Roger Ebert, Avengers actor Clark Gregg, comedian and The Daily Show correspondent John Hodgman, the stars of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and Rifftrax, and others.

Despite decades as both an amateur and professional nerd, he continues to be completely unprepared for either the zombie apocalypse or the robot uprising.
