If you saw the first Kick-Ass then just like me you're waiting with bated breath for the release of Kick-Ass 2 ($TBA). Scheduled to hit theaters on August 16th the new movie picks up where the last one left off. After hearing about Kick-Ass' heroism a new group of super heroes, led by Jim Carrey's character Colonel Stars and Stripes, hit the streets. While Red Mist (now The Mother F#@#@r) puts together his own gang of bad guys to get payback for what Kick-Ass did to him in the last flick. The beautiful Chloe Grace Moretz as Hit-Girl and the newly yoked Aaron Taylor-Johnson as Kick-Ass make this flick a sure hit.

Is the Mercedes Benz Ener-G-Force Concept ($TBA) going to be the G-Class replacement in the future? The G-Class originally hit the market in 1979 and since has acquired Legen - wait for it - dary status. The GL series was supposed to kick it to the curb and it couldn't do it, but newer stricter country regulations may soon force the G-Class off the assembly line for good. The G-Force has a combustion engine that is powered by a hydrogen fuel cell and has four in-wheel electric motors. It uses a hydro converter that is fed by water from tanks on the roof. Whether or not the Ener-G-Force or pieces of its tech ever hit the market is still up in the air, but if it ever goes into production I want one. Check out additional pics after the break.(more…)
