CUBESTORMER Lego Robot
Who was the fourth Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle? What would it look like if Black Widow saved Captain America? Where will MST3K come back? How fast can a Lego robot solve the Rubik's cube? Find out in this week's Geek Bits!

This LEGO robot is called CUBESTORMER 3 and it has smashed the Rubik's Cube speed record. It solved it in 3.253 seconds at the Big Bang Fair in Birmingham, UK. This is 2 seconds faster than its Dad, CUBESTORMER 2. The previous record was 5.27 seconds.

I'd love to hear what you think of the Internet's greatest moments in this week's "Geek Bits."

Uh oh! It's movie sign!

It sounds too good to be true, but the Mystery Science Theater 3000 crew is coming back to television. It’s about time. Zap2it is reporting that National Geographic is prepping three episodes from the guys of RiffTrax, which is the online snark track project the MST3K stars put together after the show was canceled (for the last time) in 1999. The episodes will feature the ol’ gang: Mike Nelson, Kevin Murphy (as Tom Servo) and Bill Corbett (as Crow T. Robot).


Would you watch a MST3K reunion on National Geographic?

‘Captain America’ Writers Offer ‘Captain America 3′ Story Hint  (via ScreenRant)

‘Captain America: The Winter Soldier’ brings back an old friend from the 1940s, but the screenwriters say ‘Captain America 3′ could look to the 1950s.

‘Pacific Rim 2′ Discussions Are Still Happening (Screen Rant)

While Pacific Rim looked like a box office bomb, in the end it made an astonishing $411 million worldwide. Here's what Legendary CEO and Pacific Rim producer Thomas Tull said,

“We love being in business with Guillermo and frankly that movie, if you look it up, did I think more business than the first X-Men, did more than Batman Begins, our first movie, did more than Superman Returns, The Fast and the FuriousStar Trek- so for a movie that was an original property that we made up it’s done really well. It did north of 400 million dollars globally and both the home video sales and the merchandise have way over-indexed, so it seems like fans really loved the world. So we’re going to sit down with Guillermo and as long as we think it’s authentic and there’s something to say, we’re certainly open to it.”

Do you think Pacific Rim 2 will happen?

Venus De Milo: The Forgotten Female Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle (via GeekTyrant)


The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles have always been a staple of late '80s to '90s geek culture. Four turtle brothers are exposed to mutagen and then raised by a Ninja rat to fight crime and eat pizza in only the most radical of ways. It's so easy to forget that at one point they were once five with a girl turtle, who would go down as one of the most controversial characters in TMNT history.
Do you remember the TMNT with breasts?

The only reason I know about the fifth Turtle is from a Robot Chicken sketch where Michael Moore is lamenting the plight of female toys from the 80s like Jem, She-Ra, and the Turtle, who flushed herself down the toilet.

You had me at MST3K and Firefly!

TS Hendrik said...

Thrilled about MST3K returning. I've always loved their snark.

Lydia Kang said...

I'm curious about the Black Widow. Wonder how that will be!

DAVID WALSTON said...

I Do Believe! I don't remember the girl turtle. The Winter Soldier poster is nice!

Maurice Mitchell said...

It's going to be great TS. They could snark a phone book.

Maurice Mitchell said...

Boy Robot Chicken has covered everything haven't they? Yeah a prequel would work!

Maurice Mitchell said...

I do believe, so let's be bad guys.

Maurice Mitchell said...

Good news this week!
