We found out that Sherlock is getting action figures. No it isn’t Sci Fi. But it is geek. We cover that. http://idlehands1.blogspot.com/2013/01/toy-fair-2013-sherlock-is-coming.html

Someone is foolhardily trying to put a Tardis into orbit. Good luck with that. As cool as that would be, I don’t see this happening. Too much space junk up there due to satellites and what not.  http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/573935592/were-putting-a-tardis-into-orbit-really

A British mate of mine led me to this revelation. I am pretty excited about it. It is a continuation of Star Trek TOS with new actors, but bringing back some guest stars. Also stars James Doohan’s son as Scotty. Sweet. http://www.startrekcontinues.com/

They also have Queers Dig Time Lords and for Whedon fans, The book Whedonistas. Let’s all squee! http://www.amazon.com/Chicks-Dig-Time-Lords-Celebration/dp/1935234048 And here is the FB page for them. https://www.facebook.com/ChicksDigTimeLords
