The Royal Canadian Mint announced the release of an extensive set of Star Trek coins being released over the next few months to mark the 50th Anniversary.

Most impressively though has to be the Starfleet-delta shaped coin. The coin has a crazy face value of $200 Canadian dollars! But it also happens to be minted in gold, so expect to pay way more than $200 if you decide to make a run at these coins. 

Other coins are minted in silver, like the USS Enterprise coin which is face-valued at $20:

History in the making right here folks..for the first time ever, a DC comic original movie will receive an R rating. The film will star Kevin Conroy who's voicing Batman/Bruce Wayne, Mark Hamill as the Joker (yuss!), and Tara Strong as Batgirl/Barbara Gordon.

For those unaware, The Killing Joke's storyline follows the Clown Prince of Crime and his incessant string of taunts directed at the Dark Knight, by capturing and torturing Batgirl. Some find the story misogynistic, while others think it's the best depiction of Joker out there.

Candace Payne more commonly known as Chewbacca Mom took the internet by storm when she shared this video a while ago of her amazingly entertaining reaction to the Chewbacca Mask:



Millions of views later Chewbacca Mom is getting her very own Star Wars action figure courtesy of Hasbro. She visited the Hasbro headquarters, where she was then presented with the figure. Following the presentation she shared her thoughts back on Facebook regarding the whole experience:

"So the weekend after this happened, I was able to go to the Facebook headquarters, and meet an incredible and integral part of this story and this journey, and I feel like today, right now, this moment, is a second divine moment that's happening. So, I want you, if you know how to use Emoji's, all of you out there in Facebook live world, I want you to do the handclap for these amazing people that develop stuff that your kids have...thrown at you and played with."
