Some of the best rock music of all time came from Jimi Hendrix. If you are fan of ’60s rock or Hendrix in particular, you will want this new Jimi Hendrix Woodstock POP! Vinyl figure, part of the awesome POP!
I remember playing lots of Street Fighter back in the day. Chun-Li was maybe the hottest character to ever be in a fighting game. While she wasn’t quite this exaggerated in the games, she sure is here, complete with that itty bitty waist and that round thang in yo face, to quote Sir Mix-a-Lot.
Lunch is an important meal when you are at school or work. At school it gives you a chance to talk to your friends and spend some time not learning anything. At work it gives you time to get away before you have to deal with your boss.
This is proof that you can make your LEGO dreams come true. Adam Woodworth, an aerospace engineer and hardware designer at Google, wanted to see how aeronautically sound a LEGO airplane design really was, so naturally he built his own to test it out, building a large RC version of it.
The plane is based on a 27-year-old LEGO set called the Solo Trainer.
When I was a kid if I had an extra few bucks, I spent the loot on Star Wars action figures. I always tried to find Luke Skywalker, but he was always sold out. You could usually get Darth Vader, and this 40th anniversary action figure looks just like the one I had growing up.
The 6″ tall action figure comes with a lightsaber and a display background.
…take this pipe wrench. To add to the ever growing number of Monopoly and Clue variants out there, it is now The Legend of Zelda’s turn. Truly a link to the past. I suppose it’s a good time to unleash a Zelda version of the classic murder mystery board game thanks to the success of Breath of the Wild on the Switch.
Though in this version, it’s all mystery, and no murder.
McFarlane Toys is offering up a new The Walking Dead action figure. This one is a 10-inch version of Negan with his thirsty bat Lucille getting set to strike. I like to think this is right before he popped Glenn’s eye out.
I’ve never really had a problem watching 3D movies in the theater with nausea or tired eyes. I can’t say the same about the 3DS that my son had. The top screen on that portable literally made my eyes cross and I hated it.
I remember the first time I watched Aliens back in the day, it scared the crap out of me. I also remember the cool armored personnel carrier that the colonial marines wheeled around in. That thing had seats in the back and a big laser turret on top to blast xenomorphs.
Entertainment Earth is showing off a new 1:18-scale version from Hiya Toys, and it looks awesome.
The last time I really thought about a spinning top was when DiCaprio spun one in Inception. That top was supposed to help him figure out if he was in a dream or reality. All I know is the ending left me wondering what the deal was.
Sideshow Collectibles is showing off a Baby Groot figure based on the character’s appearance in the coming Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2. This particular Groot is life size, which is to say about 10 inches tall.
This collectible has three interchangeable faces, and is expertly painted to look just like the film character.
And you thought that LEGO bricks were painful to step on. Imagine getting shot with them. There’s a gun for that. Joerg Sprave’s latest creation is a custom elastic-powered gun that can turn LEGO bricks into nasty projectiles.
Marble machines are kind of amazing. I love what people can create with them. Check out this video demonstration of a mini golf themed marble machine being built by Ben Tardif. There’s no actual putting required, also no whiny kids, so pretty awesome.
I really admire the skill and dedication that it takes to create something like this.
If you want a couple of cool new toys for your Doctor Who collection, check these out. These two Playmobil figures look like the 11th Doctor and the 4th Doctor each in their iconic garb. Unlike regular Playmobil toys, these ones measure 6″ tall – twice the normal height.
The figures also each have their own sonic screwdriver accessories, and are made to stand freely to decorate your desky-wesky.
One of the things I remember most about Labyrinth (other than Jennifer Connelly breaking the hotness scale) is the crazy hair David Bowie had as Jareth. Fans of the movie will want to check out this cool Jareth action figure coming from McFarlane Toys, complete with that over the top ’80s hairdo.
