Before today it had never occurred to us that birds and bananas are at all similar. Now that we’ve seen this wonderfully weird and ridiculously cute series of parrot-banana hybrid Epoch Gashapon toys, we’re dying to see how other fruit and fauna pair up.
According to RocketNews24, these banana birdies are selling so well that the manufacturer has plans for a whole series of “parrot-foodstuff mash-ups.” The parrot-mushroom hybrids seen in the bottom image are coming out next.
So… I went to see GotG yesterday and it was great. For a Marvel film I really loved everything about it, and I could write paragraphs on everything I loved however, here are some posters I made to represent each ‘guardian’ (Star-Lord, Gamora, Drax, Groot and Rocket respectively). I hope you enjoy them, I might do some more characters in the future! And go and see the film if you haven’t already!!
(Disclaimer: I tried to draw Gamora’s sword and it was so bad so she got the orb.. sorry Gamora)

Our friends over at the Nerdist have added that,
On the directing front, veteran Who director Douglas Mackinnon is getting three episodes this year, up from the two he did (brilliantly) last series. Aside from Mackinnon, all of the other directors are new to the show and have a long history of work in various fields. Ben Wheatley, of course, is the director of such horrifying features as Kill List and A Field in England, while the two-part finale is directed by American-born, Canadian-working director Rachel Talalay who broke into the business working on the Nightmare on Elm Street films and directing Freddy’s Dead in 1991.
