Unlike the very real Sochi 2014 Winter Olympics currently underway in Russia, "The Cosplayer Olympics" (Cosplaympics?) are a complete fabrication created entirely to service the awesomeness that is Twitter user @funyafunya0320, who recently posted images of someone snowboarding while wearing a Mobile Suit Gundam RX-78-2 costume. 10 OUT OF 10! GOLD MEDAL!

‘Dragon Ball’ Creator Akira Toriyama Reveals The Identity Of Goku’s Mother

Dragon Ball Goku Baby
Dragon Ball

When Akira Toriyama first introduced Goku in the pages of Dragon Ball, things were simple: He was a monkey-tailed boy from the wilderness who was raised by a martial arts master who wore a magical ball that when you combined it with six others it summoned a dragon for a wish and there was a girl who wanted them and -- fine, fine, things weren't that simple. As time went on and Dragon Ball shifted from a wild adventure comedy to a more straightforward battle manga as Dragon Ball Z, things became even less simple. Goku's evil brother Raditz showed up on a mission to kill everything on Earth and revealed that he was among the last of a race of alien warriors called Saiyans. That meant Goku's biological folks were just some dead jerks. In the manga, that was pretty much the end of the story, but the explosive popularity of the anime adaptation led to a movie about his Saiyan dad, Bardock. So who was Goku's mom? The question's lingered for nearly 25 years... until now (potential spoilers below).

Live-Action ‘Attack On Titan’ Movie Spawns The SUV Ad Of Your Nightmares [Video]

Attack on Titan Subaru
Subaru

Subaru is known for its cars with all-wheel drive capabilities, commitment to green initiatives, and apparently making the easiest cars for people wearing Crocs to drive. But did you know that they're also capable of outrunning humanity-devouring giants?

That's the gist of a new commercial that puts a Subaru Forester in the midst of three truly disturbing and terrifying monstrosities who may or may not be the basis of the overall look of the Attack on Titan live-action movie set for release next year. Check it out after the jump, if you can handle it.

S.H. Figaurts ‘Dragon Ball Z’ Android 18 Action Figure Coming In June

S.H. Figuarts Android 18 DBZ
Bandai

As a kid watching Akira Toriyama's Dragon Ball Z in the mid-late 1990s, I always thought the evil Dr. Gero's androids picked some kinda wacky Western clothes to wear, but these days Android 18 looks more or less like a contemporary teen. Shave half of her head and she'd more or less fit in on any major music video shoot, which makes Bandai's June/July release of the S.H. Figuarts Android 18 action figure just so timely.
