It wasn’t until a couple of months ago that I finally got around to watching the Lord of the Rings movies.  While I still haven’t seen the Hobbit, I quickly fell in love with the other movies.  While I do find them to be extremely long (I have the extended edition blu-ray disks), they are still worth the time to watch.  However, I am not yet obsessed with them to the point that I am buying all things Lord of the Rings or dressing up in Lord of the Rings cosplay.  But, if you are one of those people, I have some posters you are going to love!

Etsy seller LynxCollection (the same people that make the great Batman posters I blogged about recently as well as many others) is selling this awesome Lord of the Rings four poster set for $49.95.  However, you can get 20% off when you use the discount code ‘geek’.  The set comes with four 11″x17″ posters, one for each Lord of the Rings movie as well as the Hobbit.  If you have been looking for some cool Lord of the Rings posters to hang in your bedroom or geek cave, these are the ones you have been looking for!

While I have a huge love for art, I don’t have a big enough bank account that would support my desire to have beautiful paintings hanging all over the walls of my house.  One of my dreams is to someday own something painted by Bob Ross but at this rate, I am probably going to need to hit the lottery first before I can afford one of his works.  Anyway, I wish there were more video game inspired paintings like the one below because this is the kind of stuff I would love to hang on my walls!

The mom of Reddit user mymindisntblown painted this spectacular Legend of Zelda oil painting for them as a house warming gift.  This Zelda painting was based on a Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time promo poster that looked basically the same but I think this turned out looking a lot cooler.  This guy has the coolest mom ever!

I have to confess, I haven’t seen The Walking Dead.  I should probably also confess that I am not the least bit interested in anything zombie related.  I am sure there is plenty of good zombie stuff out there, I just find it a bit too unrealistic and gory for my taste.  However, I know that there are a ton of Global Geek News readers that like zombies and really like The Walking Dead so I thought I would share this poster set with you!

Etsy seller LynxCollection is selling this awesome three poster set for The Walking Dead for just $39.95.  Also, if you are interested in saving some cash on these, if you use the discount code ‘geek’, you will save 20%!  These 11″x17″ posters feature Daryl on the ‘The’ poster, a zombie on “Walking” and Rick on the ‘Dead’ poster.

LynxCollection is the same person that created the Dark Knight poster set I posted recently as well as many other amazing poster sets.  If you are a geek in search of some cool posters this is the guy to buy them from!

Considering Batman and Iron Man are the only superheroes without any super powers, in theory that would mean you could become either one of them if you had enough money.  Of course that brings us to the question, would it cost more to become Batman or Iron Man?  Well, that is exactly what this infographic aims to figure out!

This infographic was created by HomeownersInsurance.com and they sought out to figure out just how much insurance would cost for these two superheroes.  Well, they determined that Iron Man’s insurance premiums would run $200k/yr while Batman’s are only $115k/yr.  As for the list of assets that were considered in coming up with that figure, I will let you find that out for yourself on the infographic below.  As I am sure you can already tell, it is more expensive to be Iron Man but I think I would rather be Batman just because of the cooler vehicles.

Let us know your thoughts below about who you would rather be and if you think these numbers are in the right ballpark!  Would you even want to be the billion dollar hero?

A lot of times I shy away from posting infographics.  I love infographics and find them interesting and visually appealing (most of the time), I just find their length to be annoying.  I like seeing all of the information but I don’t like posting something so long that it might discourage people who only visit the front page of GGN from scrolling down far enough to see other things that I post.  However, being a the huge Doctor Who fan that I am, I figured I should share this one on the worth of the TARDIS!

This novelty real estate infographic on the TARDIS was created by the awesome folks over at Movoto.  Of course this infographic doesn’t take into account that the TARDIS is a time machine which pretty much makes it priceless, but it does take a decent stab at what it is worth from a real estate perspective.  Check it out!  Feel free to discuss your thoughts on how accurate this infographic is in the comments below!

I don’t think it was until I turned Global Geek News into a geek culture blog and started to take it seriously that I really ever heard of steampunk.  I’ve never really been one to care anything about style but I have come to really love the style of steampunk.  Speaking of steampunk, I was recently contacted by a couple that makes some great steampunkesque artwork who wondered if I would be interested in posting about one of their creations and I said sure!

CJ and Jess Crawford are the people behind Twisted Metal Dragon Creations which creates all kinds of cool steampunkesque style art/sculptures our of recycled metal scraps.  Below is a cool bike that they made which I think is perhaps my favorite piece of their artwork.

If you want to see more of their work, you can check them out over at Twisted Metal Dragon Creations or you can even buy some of the stuff over at their Etsy store.
