BSG: Viper Car

BSG: Viper Car

This street-legal Battlestar Galactica’s Viper was built by amusement park mechanic Dean Shorey. It’s made from a postal jeep with a small-block Chevy V8 – just like the original spaceships.

Geminoid F Robot Clone

Geminoid F Robot Clone

The Geminoid F robot was created by a Japanese scientist to look just like its human doppelgänger, and can even show emotions. We have seriously stepped into the uncanny valley here.

Trailer: Splice

Trailer: Splice

Adrien Brody and Sarah Plley play two biochemists who get a little too experimental when they combine human and animal DNA. From the looks of this trailer, that probably was a bad idea.

Be In The Next X-Men Film

Be In The Next X-Men Film

Here’s your chance to appear in and meet the cast of the next X-Men movie. A non-speaking, walk-on role is being auctioned off, with proceeds going to the Worldwide Orphans Foundation.

GM EN-V Concept Car

GM EN-V Concept Car

This concept car design provides a glimpse into the future of auto manufacturing. The zero-emission GM EN-V could drive autonomously, and turn its two-passenger compartment on a dime.

Live Action: Ghost Recon

Live Action: Ghost Recon

Ghost Recon: Future Soldier takes us into the future with robotic drones and invisibility cloaks in this absolutely kick-ass live-action trailer; four words: holy mother-effing awesome.

Website: Alien Vs. Pooh

Website: Alien Vs. Pooh

If you felt that Aliens vs. Predator was a disappointment, Giant Hamburger’s epic Alien Vs. Pooh makes up for it with plenty of face hugging, chest bursting fun in Hundred Acre Wood.

Gundam w/Beam Saber

Gundam w/Beam Saber

The 59-foot Gundam may have been dismantled, but it’ll get a second lease on life (and some Minovsky particles) in July: it’ll be rebuilt outside Shizuoka station with a beam saber.

Symphony of Battle: Lost Planet 2

Symphony of Battle: Lost Planet 2

Lost Planet 2 gets even more epic than it already is with a lengthy 4 minute Symphony of Battle trailer; set to theatrical music, it mixes cinematics and gameplay while dishing out features.

Concept Trailer: Warren Lich

Concept Trailer: Warren Lich

1984 meets Blade Runner meets 300 meets totally awesome in this stunning 4-minute concept trailer for Warren Lich; it was created by Revolver Films with a budget of 1,000 euros.

Blu-ray/DVD: Avatar

Blu-ray/DVD: Avatar

Blu-ray gets just a bit bluer on 4/22/10 with the release of Avatar; it’ll be available as a two-disc Blu-ray and DVD combo, with an “ultimate” edition with extras coming in November.

Full Trailer: Predators

Full Trailer: Predators

If you liked last week’s teaser, watch the full trailer for Predators above; the reboot of the franchise spreads the death amongst multiple characters as opposed to focusing on just one.

Poster: Sci-Fi Periodic Table

Poster: Sci-Fi Periodic Table

Packed with more trivia than a Comic Con, this Periodic Table of Sci-Fi Film and TV Poster takes us back to the future and breaks down all things geeky into its basic (fifth) elements.

Extreme Terrestrial (T-shirt)

Extreme Terrestrial (T-shirt)

It’s a good thing that E.T. crash-landed on Earth before the X-Games came into vogue; this Extreme Terrestrial t-shirt has aliens everywhere flipping out over their extreme treatment.

Movie Teaser: Predators

Movie Teaser: Predators

Arnold won’t be back for Predators, the long-overdue sequel for the franchise, but catch a sneak peak of the movie here; in theaters 7/10/10, it introduces new super-Predators.

Tech Trailer: Crysis 2

Tech Trailer: Crysis 2

Even with relatively poor quality video, this Tech Trailer for Crysis 2 has us happier than a fully-charged Nano Suit with procedural destruction, dynamic cover, physics, and more.

Launch: DoW II: Chaos Rising

Launch: DoW II: Chaos Rising

Available now: here is a fine, barbed-wire line between chaos and order in any war, but Dawn of War II: Chaos Rising invites the Blood Ravens to cross it in this launch trailer.

Trailer: Stargate Universe 1.5

Trailer: Stargate Universe 1.5

Stargate Universe has gotten a chilly reception from critics, but this trailer for Season 1.5 promises to heat things up: we get a CG-laden peek at close encounters of the hostile kind.

Video: Blue Eyed Universe

Video: Blue Eyed Universe

Filled with stargates, red alerts, and one improbably round spaceship, Salt Lake City band Fictionist’s Blue Eyed Universe is an animated ode to going where no man has gone before.

Iron Man FX Arc Reactor

Iron Man FX Arc Reactor

It’s not quite as cool as the suit itself, but the Iron Man FX Arc Reactor is arguably its most coveted part: the full-sized movie replica lights up and is removable from its base.

Universe Trailer: Lost Planet 2

Universe Trailer: Lost Planet 2

This Universe trailer for Lost Planet 2 combines every other LP2 trailer and then some: running nearly 4 minutes long, it’s an epic non-stop onslaught of cinematics and gameplay.

Movie Trailer 2: Tron Legacy

Movie Trailer 2: Tron Legacy

It’s considered a teaser, but this second trailer for Tron Legacy is definitely in like Flynn: a bit (8-bits, to be exact) more plot exposition as Sam Flynn searches for his MIA father Kevin.

Round 6 (Short Film)

Round 6 (Short Film)

Snowball Studios’ Round 6 is actually two stories in one: it’s a trailer for a video game called Fragball (think gladiator football meets Army of Two) which was invented for the sci-fi short film.

Hammerhead: Mass Effect 2

Hammerhead: Mass Effect 2

Mass Effect 1’s Mako was short for “makin’ me mad,” but we’re actually looking forward to the Hammerhead: the hovertank will be a free Mass Effect 2 DLC and will include new missions.

Short Film: Regen

Short Film: Regen

Regen is a trippy union of Death Race, Resident Evil and Minority Report with just the barest semblance of a plot, but good god is it awesome: that ball and chain seriously rocks.

Mass Effect 2 S1 Figures

Mass Effect 2 S1 Figures

Other than a strange-looking Commander, we’re pretty impressed by DC Unlimited’s Mass Effect 2 Series 1 action figures; the four-piece set includes Tali, Thane, Grunt, and Shepard.

1:1 District 9 Gas Projector

1:1 District 9 Gas Projector

Missed out on WETA’s 1:1 scale District 9 Arc Generator? This full-size, prawn-friendly Gas Projector gun is also an exact replica from the movie; it’s limited to 200 and made from fiberglass.

Multiplayer Beta: Halo: Reach

Multiplayer Beta: Halo: Reach

Sneak a peek at Halo: Reach’s Alpha multiplayer above while getting the drop on the multiplayer beta; the latter will be available on Xbox LIVE 5/3/2010 to owners of Halo 3: ODST.

Figure: Iron Man: War Machine

Figure: Iron Man: War Machine

Iron Man’s better-armed half wears monochrome well in this slick 13″ War Machine Armor Statue; it packs a wrist-mounted cannon and shoulder-mounted plasma and gatling guns.

Short Film: Connected

Short Film: Connected

Self-described as a sci-fi western on a tiny budget, Connected is a dark yet beautifully shot post-apocalyptic short film set in Denmark; we like its favoring of artistic style over exposition.

Order: Gratuitous Space Battles

Order: Gratuitous Space Battles

Gratuitous Space Battles’ second expansion pack, The Order, gets an explosive trailer above; named after a new race (think religious Borg), it adds 11 ships, 3 weapons, and 2 missions.
