The Fallout-inspired charging hub is for the vault dweller that has a lot of gadgets but wants a taste of the wasteland world outside. It’s a very cool replica of a suit of power armor from the game, just much tinier and lighter.
I have been a big fan of Battlestar Galactica since way back in the day when Starbuck was a dude. Not long ago we talked about the BSG Viper MK II from the new series and if you had to have it, just get out your wallet again.
Despite being smack dab in the middle of Chicago, my neighborhood is packed with all manner of woodland creatures. Every time I walk the dog, she wants to chase at least a dozen brown bunny rabbits, a couple of garter snakes, and run up a tree to hunt down a squirrel or three.
There are two kinds of LEGO kits that I have always liked. I go for anything with wheels, like the slick new LEGO Corvette ZR-1, and also anything with wings. The cool part about LEGO aircraft is that you can pretend to fly them, then drop your plane and watch it explode.
Transformers fans who want a little Bumblebee in their life can get their hands on a Masterpiece Movie Series MPM-7 Bumblebee figure that transforms into a Volkswagen Beetle. The toy looks really cool, and is highly detailed compete with rusty, muddy decoration around the bottom of the car and wheel wells.
We like our LEGO around these parts. Usually, when we are talking about a LEGO Technic car kit, we are talking about an insanely complex and expensive bag of parts. The $350, 3599-piece Bugatti Veyron kit is an excellent example of how extravagant LEGO car kits can be.
As a kid, I loved the original Battlestar Galactica, and had some of the toys that went with the show. I particularly remember the Viper spaceship, and I would routinely play with the triangular fighter during commercial breaks.
There are very few scenes in cinema history that are as cool and unique as the opening sequence from Raiders of the Lost Ark. This, in a movie that is full of iconic scenes. In the 80s, kids everywhere were pretending that they were being chased by a boulder for years.
Now that Santa has come and gone, I’m sure some of you still have Christmas cash or gift cards burning a hole in your pockets. You might be wanting something to make you feel like you got a new console for Christmas rather than a gift card.
Do you love Mickey Mouse? I mean really love him? You may not love him so much after seeing this. Matthew Plummer Fernandez’s Every Mickey is a terrifying Disney mutation. This thing is a 19″ tall 3D printed object consisting of “Every model of Mickey Mouse found online, compiled as one.”
Fans of Leica cameras will want to check out these sweet LEGO models of classic rangefinders. A real Leica camera will cost you thousands, so this is a more affordable way to have one on your shelf, even if it doesn’t work.
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″ tall and has a 2.75″ LCD screen.
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.
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.
