Toy Football/Plane Hybrid Can Be Thrown Over 100 Yards

Toy Football/Plane Hybrid Can Be Thrown Over 100 Yards
This is the Mad Fly Sports Raptor Football, a toy football/plane hybrid that can be thrown over 100 yards. So maybe for once when my brother tells me to go long, he’ll actually mean it. The toy does require a unique throw (read: not a football spiral) for the creation of maximum lift and distance though, so there is a learning curve involved.

AI Frame Interpolation Boosts LEGO Stop Motion to 60 FPS
It takes a whole lot of work to create stop-motion animation. After all, the characters and scenery in each and every frame need to be precisely positioned before snapping each still image. At the traditional film rate of 24 frames per second, you need to shoot 1440 individual photos for one minute of footage.

The Weirdest and Worst Star Trek Toys Ever

The Weirdest and Worst Star Trek Toys Ever
Despite getting its start back in 1966, Star Trek continues to entertain, with new series like Star Trek: Discovery, Picard, and Lower Decks, all actively in production. Over the years, the franchise has certainly evolved, though in general, sticking to a formula that blends social commentary, science fiction, adventure, and humor.

Spaceballs: The LEGO Set

Spaceballs: The LEGO Set
These days, it’s impossible to look back at the movies of the great Mel Brooks without somebody getting their panties in a bunch about their lack of political correctness. To that, I say, “lighten up.” Comedy is supposed to push boundaries, and poke fun at people’s sensitivities and societal norms.

There’s a Back to the Future Playmobil Set

There’s a Back to the Future Playmobil Set
Growing up, I was always more of a LEGO kid than a Playmobil kid. I always liked how LEGO bricks and minifigs left more to the imagination than Playmobil, so I felt I could be more creative with their toys.

Super Mario Piranha Plant Light Flexes Its Stalk

Super Mario Piranha Plant Light Flexes Its Stalk

Build Your Own Creepy Robot Centipede

Build Your Own Creepy Robot Centipede
Are you in need of a creepy robot centipede? Sure, we all are. Well, here ya go. Japanese toy maker Tamiya now sells a wonderfully weird centipede robot construction kit. It’s pretty creepy, and pretty awesome. 

I Need This Official LEGO NES Console in My Life

I Need This Official LEGO NES Console in My Life
I love LEGO, and I love Nintendo games, so when I first heard the two companies were partnering up, I thought it could result in some really great collaborations. While the first LEGO Super Mario kits were definitely targeted to little kids, and not overgrown kids like me, their newly-announced set is definitely up my alley.

PinSwitch Turns Your Nintendo Switch into a Tiny Pinball Machine

PinSwitch Turns Your Nintendo Switch into a Tiny Pinball Machine
One of the many things that’s cool about the Nintendo Switch is how people are coming up with creative ways to dock the handheld. Most of the docks I’ve seen keep the screen hidden. In this case, the dock turns the Switch into a tiny pinball machine instead.

Pikachu + Chewbacca = Pikachewie

Pikachu + Chewbacca = Pikachewie
Given all of the things that Disney has purchased over the years, we’re surprised they have yet to buy Nintendo or at least the Pokémon franchise. If they did, they’d probably create some crazy Star Wars / Pokémon mashup merch.

Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head Egg Cups Are All They’re Cracked Up to Be

Mr. and Mrs. Potato Head Egg Cups Are All They’re Cracked Up to Be
Eggs. I love them scrambled, over-easy, in an omelette, on top of a burger, poached, or boiled. And potatoes aren’t too shabby either, but they’re just not as healthy for you as eggs are. Well, now you can enjoy potatoes with your eggs without the added carbs, thanks to these Mr.
