Doom Digest

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: More Star Trek on the CBS comedy The Big Bang Theory, an Avengers TV spot, Jason Segel gets a rejection letter from Hillary Clinton, homemade R2-D2 shorts, and the stormtroopers of Star Wars fame doing the Stormtroopers Shuffle, plus Bits Of Doom.

R2-D2 Turntable

So, I just told you about today being Record Store Day, where a bunch of special vinyl releases are available throughout the world at local record shops.

But in order to actually PLAY a vinyl record, you need a record player – or a turntable.

And wouldn’t it be awesome to have a Star Wars-themed turntable to play all your KISS Destroyer records on? (OK, I need it for all my old KISS albums; maybe you need it for your new limited-edition 7″ Coldplay record.) Anyhow, check to the image above of an R2-D2 Turntable, which is totally awesome.

May you find the droids you’re looking for…

Etsy shop LovesickRobotStudios created this holiday greeting card featuring Star Wars droid R2-D2. And while the sentiment is that you find the droids you’re looking for, I think we can all be thankful that the Empire didn’t find the droids they were looking for!

Star Wars Gold Heart Pin

In conjunction with the upcoming 3D re-release of Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace Lucasfilm Ltd. and 20th Century Fox are teaming up with Variety the Children’s Charity to create a Star Wars-themed pin for their annual Gold Heart Pin Campaign. Every year since 1991, Variety has worked with a major Hollywood studio to sell special pins based on a certain film or character in theaters across the United States in order to raise money to provide much-needed assistance to disabled and disadvantaged children around the world.

This year, the Gold Heart Pin will feature the Star Wars franchise’s lovable droid duo C-3PO and R2-D2. The pin will be sold in over 1,000 theaters from November 2011 until April 2012 and will be priced at $3.00.

R2-D2 Baby

Finally, the little droid that could from the Star Wars trilogy, R2-D2, has found itself a new buddy with whom he can converse.

A video is making its way around the web that shows an R2-D2 with working lights and sounds that catches the attention of a baby and leads to what you’ll see is quite the deep little conversation.

The only real question here is what exactly these two might be talking about. Who out there is fluent in both gibberish and droid that can translate?

You can check out the video by heading on over to the other side now!
