Retro games are hot right now with all sorts of devices out there from Nintendo, Sony, and others. Check out this miniature version of Galaxian from My Arcade.
The Handheld Galaxian arcade cabinet is about 6.75″
When I was a kid, I had one of those Stretch Armstrong toys. It was tons of fun until I decided that stretching it as far as my arms would go wasn’t enough, and I sliced it open with a pair of scissors.
Lost in Space fans will want this collectible B-9 robot action figure based on the episode of the sci-fi series called “The Anti-Matter Man.” The robot has different colors than the similar toy we talked about back in 2015, because this one is from the opposite world.
The Diamond Select action figure has lights and sounds taken straight from the TV show.
If you are the sort that waits until the weekend before Christmas to go shopping, it’s that time. That means you finally have to get off your butt and stop procrastinating. The good news is that Target has an insanely good toy sale going on right now where you can get up to 50% off some toys, and have them shipped right to your door or ready for pickup at your local store.
Pretty much everything in the toy aisle is on sale including toys for all ages and sexes.
It seems like it has been a very long time since Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom was in theaters. If you have kids that are fans of dinosaurs and the movie, they will love this Alpha Training Blue RC robot.
The very first arcade game I ever played a sit-down console style Pac-Man game at a Pizza Hut, and it was awesome. I fed more quarters into arcade games than I care to admit. If you want some of that ’80s arcade nostalgia in your home or office, check this out.
Numskull Designs‘ picture perfect 1/4 scale Pac-Man arcade cabinet comes complete with the real colors and art from the original machine.
I mentioned before that I had wanted my own ’80s arcade in my home since Silver Spoons was on the air. Arcade1Up has been peddling smaller sized arcade cabinets that look like those classics from the ’80s, and packing multiple games.
You know Tiffany & Co? They’re the ones that make all the expensive jewelry and accessories for rich people. I’m pretty sure that you and I aren’t even allowed to utter their name aloud unless our bank account hits a certain threshold.
Growing up, all I wanted in the world for one of my birthdays was an Optimus Prime Transformer. I got it even though it was like $20 back then, which seemed like $100 today. Hasbro’s Transformers Masterpiece Edition MP-44 Optimus Prime (ver 3.0)
I’d wager most people that played with LEGO growing up made cars and trucks with the bricks and promptly crashed them. Hammacher Schlemmer is offering a set of RC toy monster trucks which takes that idea and runs with it.
Crash and Rebuild Monster Trucks aren’t made from LEGO, but they do seem LEGO-like in how the bodies and drivers click into the chassis.
Why is it that spaceships in science fiction have a tendency to be grey or other blah colors? It makes little sense to me, given the fact that we love colorful cars. Heck, I drive an orange car myself.
Well, it looks like Transformers are becoming a real thing if this basketball drone is any indication. But is it an Autobot or a Decepticon? It is definitely more than meets the eye. That’s all I know for sure.
So yeah, objects like basketballs are now transforming into robots.
Growing up, the key to a great Saturday morning full of cartoons and fun was a big bowl of Cap’N Crunch cereal with Crunch Berries in it. Note that I am most certainly not talking about the nasty peanut butter variety available back in the day, or the “plain” version that lacked Crunch Berries; those cereals were for hooligans.
If you just can’t get enough of talking fish, your Christmas wish has been answered. Likely inspired by this fan hack a couple of years back, there’s now an Alexa-enabled version of Big Mouth Billy Bass.
Just pair Billy to any Amazon Echo device and Billy “will respond to Alexa voice commands, lip sync with Alexa’s speech, respond to your questions, react to times, notifications and alarms, and dance to the beat of your music.
Do or do not buy this collectible. There is no try. Your holidays are just not complete until you decorate with some cool Star Wars merch, like this 7″ tall Jedi Master Yoda Musical Glitter Globe.
This fancy-schmancy snow, I mean glitter globe is available from The Bradford Exchange for $99.99.
