This Guy Looks Exactly Like Montgomery Scott [Cosplay]

scotty costume

It’s a wonderful thing when a cosplayer bears a resemblance to the character he or she is dressing as, but it’s not common for the likeness to be this freaking close. This cosplayer spotted at Dragon Con looks a lot like James Doohan and makes a perfect Montgomery Scott. He’s definitely played to his strengths, and it appears that he’s taken the time to add all the little touches. I hope he embraced it and spoke with Scotty’s familiar Scottish accent.

A Man Convinced Investors Canada Was Making ‘Star Trek’ Medical Tricorders


Okay, well here’s a thing that happened – a man from Illinois named Howard Leventhal managed to convince a group of investors to give him $800,000 to develop a real-life Star Trek tricorder. Cool! Except, of course, the whole thing was a scam, something the investors should have realized immediately given this device was going to be called “Heltheo’s McCoy Home Health Tablet”. Here’s how Howard Leventhal described his imaginary device…

“Heltheo’s McCoy Home Health Tablet, named after the fictional Dr. Leonard McCoy of TV’s Star Trek series, is designed as a platform to maximize the patient benefits through broadband-augmented in-home telemedicine.”

Ah, telemedicine. Of course.

So, how did Howard convince people his ridiculous tricorder scheme was legit? By claiming Canada was already pumping millions into developing the device. Howard even faked Canadian government documents and forged the signatures of top Canadian Health officials. To all the Americans out there – guys, I know Canada is an exotic foreign country and all, but I can assure you, we don’t have 23rd century technology up here. We make phones with lots of little buttons that nobody wants, not tricorders.

Unfortunately Howard got greedy and tried to get another 2.5 million out of his investors and was caught. I say “unfortunately” because, come on, if you fall for “I’m making a tricorder and Canada’s totally on board!” you deserve to be separated from your money.

‘Star Trek Into Darkness’ Khan or Not Update: Alice Eve Says…


The rumors about the real identity of the villain in J.J.AbramsStar Trek into Darkness continue to swirl around the Internet like a runaway transporter beam, coalescing then disappearing like smoke in the wind. When one of the major characters in the upcoming film makes a public appearance at an event, they know they’re going to get the Khan question: Is Benedict Cumberbatch‘s mysterious John Harrison character really Khan?

Alice Eve, who plays Carol Marcus (Kirk love interest?) seemed ready and quite definite in her answer while working the Red Carpet at the BAFTA (British Academy of Film and Television Arts) awards last night. I re-checked all I’ve learned from watching CSI, Tell Me Lies, Doctor Phil and couldn’t find any tell-tale indicators that she wasn’t completely honest in her answer.

“He’s not playing Khan,”

I’ve come to the personal conclusion that she is telling the truth, Cumberbatch is not playing Khan. He’s playing the role that Judson Scott played in the Star Trek: Wrath of Khan, Khan’s right hand man and number two, Joachim. Khan, perhaps played by Peter Weller, will make an appearance at the end of the movie setting up the story of the third movie, but then again maybe I’m wrong, it won’t be the first or last time.

J.J. AbramsStar Trek into Darkness hits theater screens on May 15th starring Chris Pine, Zachary Quinto, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zoe Saldana, Karl Urban, John Cho, Bruce Greenwood, Simon Pegg, Anton Yelchin Alice Eve, and Peter Weller.

Gadgets, doohickeys, thingamabobs and more – all sorts of items that have been Nerd tested and Bastard approved. Basically, stuff you want, things you need, and everything you can’t have.

We hope you’ll find some unique and nerdtastic gifts among our selections, and that they make their way under your tree, Menorah or Kwanzaa bush.

Hit the jump for Mark Poynter‘s list of Nerdful things. Check back tomorrow for Nick Bungay‘s list. To see archive of this feature, click HERE.

1. Captain America Statue Lamp by Westland Giftware

Luke started off with the replica Captain America shield I wanted s0 I looked around and found this little gem. That would look so good on my desk, providing much needed light and inspiration. There’s the good Captain, the Hulk, Thor, Spider-Man, the *#%-damned Batman, and the Man of Steel. They are priced from $54.99 to $59.99 and would make any fan boy light up (Get it . . . I’m punny.) with joy.

2. Legend of Zelda Replica Shield

If you’re gonna save the princess you’ve got to have the right equipment. This replica shield will only cost you $69.99, not the usual 80 Hylian Rupees, but maybe that’s just the exchange rate kicking in. Since the shield should provide you with the defensive edge you need, you might want to get the edge a Legend of Zelda Master Sword would bring. Priced at $44.99 you could get both to ensure your victory over the forces of evil.

3. United Federation Of Planets Flag

While everyone else in the neighborhood is flying their holiday banners or football team logos you can proudly fly the flag that unites the universe. Except for those pesky Romulans, Borg, and Klingons running around. Well, you get the gist of it and this will only set you back $49.95.

4. Planet Replica Custom Name Judge Badge

Get your own personalized Judge badge from Planet Replica. Your own name, with the only limitation that they recommend 10 or 11 letters maximum to make sure the name reads properly in the space available. Priced at 60.00, that’s about $95.00 at current exchange rates.

5. Dominion by Rio Grande Games

This is a great card game with many expansions to choose from that only make the game even better. The game never plays the same way twice because the cards you play with varies each game. This is a great gift for those that like strategy games. The game usually retails for $44.95, but if you look around you can find great deals on it. The link above has it for $29.26 with free shipping!

6. 7 Wonders by Asmodee

Yes, another game. What can I say, I am a board game guy. 7 Wonders should make the top ten games list of any serious board gamer. It is beautifully made, the game play design is fantastic, and the variety in game play is tons of fun. Retail is $49.99, but again you can find good sales on it like the link above at $32.40. There are a couple of expansions that add some spice to the strategy and game play well worth the price.

7. Marvel Wall Mural at

This is my choice from the many Marvel Wall Murals available at AllPosters. There are a ton to choose from, but this is the one I want. Just look at the size of that. I can picture it along the wall in my comic book room. Coming in at 48 X 72 inches that is a huge piece of artwork for $124.99. The only problem might be convincing the lady of the house to allow you to put it up.

8. Doctor Who’s TARDIS Door Decals

If you’re like me and can’t really afford the TARDIS Refrigerator then you can always go for the TARDIS Door Decal set from Etsy user Bjorn. It’s a steal at $24.99. Now you do have to paint your door blue as the decals are only includes the Police Box Bar (32″ by 3″), the Pull to open (11″ by 9″), and two of the Windows (8″ by 8″). Just think, your front door, bathroom door, or closet, you choose can front for the TARDIS when the Doctor arrives.

9. Godzilla Plush Slippers

If you’re gonna stomp around the house over a lazy weekend you might as well do it in the comfort of your own Godzilla Slippers. These things can crush LEGO buildings without the usual foot crippling effects. Comfort ain’t cheap though my nerdy friend, these bad boys will set you back $30.99.

10, Hellboy II The Golden Army Right Hand of Doom

Sometimes you just need a little something extra and this is it. $24.99 gets you the hand that saves humanity. Get your “Perlman” on with this latex foam-filled replica. Every nerd in the neighborhood had Hulk hands, but you’ll really bring the nerd cred with this one.
