We've also seem some artists take characters and create portraits of them in a steampunk setting . Sculptor Sillof took that one step further by crafting action figures of dozens of characters from the original trilogy as if they were flying airships and "X wing biplanes" instead of space ships. These figures were made using parts and pieces from existing toys and sculpting on top of them using an epoxy polymer to create the shapes that he couldn't find otherwise. "I usually work on all of them at once, so while the glue or paint is drying on one I work on another," Sillof writes on his website.

"Sometimes I sculpt over the old toy parts. The figures were created back in 2007, but I hadn't seen them yet so I figured that you might not have either. Rock-paper-scissors-lizard-spock. A diagram explaining the outcomes of the game The normal form matrix of rock-paper-scissors-lizard-Spock.

People operating as superheroes in the real world have been making headlines over the past year, but this story takes the cake. Up in Seattle, a local costumed crime fighter thwarted a car theft and suddenly wound up on the news. Phoenix Jones, the black-and-gold wearing Seattle superhero, came across a would-be thief trying to break into the car of a local man who is only identified as "Dan. " Jones proceeded to chase the criminal away, but didn't stick around for Dan to thank him. When Dan contacted the local news, reporters knew exactly who the vigilante was and brought the two men together; Jones showed off his non-lethal crime fighting equipment, his armor, and chatted with him.
