Check Out Sideshow's New Wolfpack Clone Trooper: 104th Battalion Sixth Scale Figure

Sideshow Collectibles has a new addition to their Militaries of Star Wars collection. The new Wolfpack Clone Trooper: 104th Battalion Sixth Scale Figure is inspired by Sergeant Sinker in Star Wars: The Clone Wars and features the Wolfpack's blue-grey decor. It also comes equipped with a standard issue jetpack, a cool back pack, some killer weapons, and interchangeable hands and feet.

I had a chance to unbox one of my own, so I took a few pictures of that so you can see the packaging and see how cool he looks in the light of day. But I'm also including some of Sideshow's photos because, let's be honest, they're better pictures than mine.

Head after the break to check it out.

Toys for Tots Receives $100K Toy Donation from Entertainment Earth

You may not know this but the whole Geek Girl Diva thing was born during my time at Entertainment Earth and EE has a place near and dear to my heart for a number of reasons.

Having read that EE just donated $100,000 worth of toys to Toys for Tots, I need to add another reason to my list ;-)

Please take a moment to read the press release after the break. EE did good and I want to share the love.

Hot Topic turns 25 and they're throwing one heck of an anniversary party, with cool trivia to boot!

It's no secret that I'm a huge fan of Hot Topic and have been for years, but there are lots of things I didn't know about them.

In celebration of their 25th anniversary, they're doing special promos, they're asking people to post their goth selfies, they're sharing their history in photos, and they released a list of 25 Things You (Probably) Don't Know About Hot Topic. I thought it was a neat bit of trivia, so I share. ;-)

There's a #Supernatural Clue game. Shut up and take my money!

There's a Supernatural Clue game. I...oh my gosh. Want, need, must have.

Details and more after the break.

An open letter to Katy Steinmetz of Time on whether we need to ban the word "feminist".

Dear Katy,

Bae, we need to talk about your "Words that should be banned in 2015" article. That thing you wrote for Time makes you some like some basic bitch who's worried about being bossy concerned she might disrupt the natural order of things by admitting that the word feminist is not only a word that's never going to be worn out, but one you should be embracing.

How can you, a woman who's looking to be an empowered voice on the web, suggest that we give that word up?

I can't even...

I have no doubt you'd rather be an influencer in the world and create powerful articles that change people's minds. That you worry that, as a woman, if you're not edgy and unique, you may be relegated to writing silly articles about kale. That you literally worry about using words like "om nom nom" because someone will think you're a "girl" instead of a "woman".

But, here's the thing, Katy. We need that word. Because, and I'm not trying to be obvi here, but when we live in a word where women are not equal, where we're called names just for being women, where we are paid less, treated as less, respected less, just because of our gender, that word matters.

That word pisses people off because it reminds them that it's necessary.

"I'm a woman who's totally okay with being treated like a second class citizen". - said no one ever.

I think you wrote this because you're trying to be cool. But, throwing your gender's equality under the bus to make a point is beyond uncool and makes you look desperate. #sorrynotsorry.

Instead of saying you need to get turnt, I'm going to suggest that maybe you might want to look at this again and consider that you just devalued yourself. You're smarted than that. You're more talented than that.

You're better than that.

Feel me?

Yaaaaasssssss ;-)

p.s. If you speak geek, let me put it this way -- "You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means".

Update: I'd like to add a little note for the editor at Time who thought this post was a good idea.

Mark Sheppard got the best texts from Jared, Jensen & Misha about the Supernatural 200th ep. party

Mark Sheppard shares a text thread between Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Misha Collins, and himself regarding the Supernatural 200th Episode party and it's frickin' hilarious.

For those of you who may not know, Mark had to miss the party. It's so nice to know the guys were so...inclusive.

Head after the break to watch it.

Thing I need: Hand painted exploding TARDIS Starry Night ornament.

Not only is it gorgeous, but I'm pretty sure the color scheme works with a Christmas Tree or a Channukah bush ;-)

Wow. Love. Thanks ThinkGeek!
