Every day here at Doom HQ we receive tons of tips from our readers about really cool stuff from the world of geek, as well as promotional materials for new films, comic books, collectibles, and much more. While we do our best to bring you as much of it as possible, we don’t always have enough geek manpower available to cover it all on a daily basis. But we hate the idea of all of this really cool stuff wasting away in our inbox. How could we NOT cover it? Hence why we’ve resurrected our long-defunct column Bits Of Doom, now rebranded and revamped as Doom Digest, a collection of easily digestible bits of news, videos, photos, and other goodies.
Today: Battlestar Galactica Colonial Viper and Cylon Raider plushes, a 100th Anniversary poster for Paramount Pictures, a letter of note from Ray Bradbury, an animated filmography for Tim Burton’s works, a $30k Iron Throne From Game Of Thrones and a supercut of every death scene from Season 2, plus Bits Of Doom.
