Last spring, Konami was inspired by the success of the Attack on Titan manga to launch a mobile, digital card game on the Mobage platform. In turn, drawing from author Hajime Isayama's interest in MMA (the armored titan is a Frankenstein's monster of Brock Lesnar, Alistair Overeem and Wanderlei Silva) and the ever present fan interest in girls in yukata, the game inspired some amazing character redesigns.

Ok, we gotten past in the initial reference stage of Attack on Titan inspired tribute work and we're starting to see more baroque projects. Tsukikeizyu's ball joint doll costume building is definitely part of a more advanced phase. See the work after the jump.
It's not only the presence of the Colossal Titan that draws viewers to the show, Attack On Titan also fascinates viewers with the speedy 3D Maneuver gear action by the Scouting Legions. A Japanese freelance engineer who is famous for creating a series of Puella Magi Madoka Magica web mini-games made an unofficial Attack On Titan mini-game called "Susume! Rittai Kidou! (rough translation, Let's Go! 3D Maneuver Gear!)". Get a look after the jump!
"Jason-san", a popular wood sculpture artist with a chainsaw on Nico Nico Douga, uploaded his latest work on May 4th and he worked on what seems like the most sought after creature at the moment, the Colossal Titan from Attack On Titan. I thought I was starting to get tired of all the titan craziness, but I was wrong. This one is as impressive as the other titan inspired works that have made the news so far. Take a look at screencaps after the jump!
We have seen what a live-action movie poster of Attack On Titan could look like, how about a location that looks like the setting?

A couple weeks back, we mentioned that the an Attack on Titan photo manipulation iPhone app has been around for over a year promoting the manga, but has been recently refreshed for the anime.

PandaNiku's prominent posterior doujinshi predated the Attack on Titan anime. So, for a while, they were the most popular Titan images on Japanese art community Pixiv. Pics of Sasha "Potato-tan" Blause are certainly popular, but might have peaked. However, it's the fan girls who have decided Attack on Titan's most popular tribute art. See the top art after the jump.
Plenty of manga authors look like regular people, albeit acutely over-worked regular people. Then there's folks like infamously ageless Hirohiko Araki, boss Kazuo Koike, rocking Buichi Terasawa and so on. The Attack on Titan manga has a distinctive look, and if you were wondering what inspired it, I propose that Hajime Isayama could have partially been drawing from the image starring back from the mirror. See why after the jump.
In the wake of teens Twittering their photo recreations of Kamehamehas and Hadokens, we're now getting a flood of Attack on Titan pics. It was an easily forecastable meme, but no less amusing for its inevitability. Get a look after the jump.
