Someone Made a Real Version of Andy's Room From Toy Story 3

Ever wanted to live in one of your favorite movies? Mason McGrew really does. As part of their real-life remake of Toy Story 3, brothers Morgan and Mason McGrew, ages 19 and 16, painstakingly morphed Mason's room into Andy's room, with details right down to the stickers on the doors and the notes written on the whiteboard.

Some of the elements were lucky thrift store finds, like the green and red dart board on the back of the door. Others were made completely from scratch, such as the many posters and stickers that adorn Andy’s walls. Be sure to look for Easter eggs—I spy a Monsters Inc. sticker and a “Newt Xing” sign, which refers to a Pixar movie that ended up getting scrapped.

“The most challenging piece to recreate was the crescent moon headboard,” Morgan said. “My brother and I had to get help from our dad on that one. It was a tremendous amount of precise woodwork."

Hop over to the Pixarist to check out side-by-side comparisons of shots from the movie and pictures from the real room. It’s surprisingly hard to tell which is which.

No matter what their powers, every super hero has an origin story, from Spider-Man’s radioactive bite to Iron Man’s life-threatening chest shrapnel. In their latest poster, the designers at Pop Chart Lab have taken their infographic savvy to the Marvel Universe, charting the heroic origins of 36 different Marvel characters through miniature, minimalist comics.

Without using any words, they’ve managed to illustrate Bucky Barnes's plane explosion and subsequent transformation into the Winter Soldier, Jessica Jones’s car crash, the death of the Punisher’s family, and other classic stories from the major Marvel canon while paying tribute to the comic book form.

Explore the poster below, and see a zoomable version on Pop Chart Lab’s website.

Keep your eyes open for future Marvel-Pop Chart crossovers. The Marvel Origins: A Sequential Compendium poster is “the first release of what we hope to be a marvelous partnership,” as Pop Chart Lab’s Galvin Chow puts it. Prints are available for pre-order starting at $37 and are scheduled to start shipping on March 8.
