Growing up, we rarely went to the movies, so that meant I saw most of the cool ’80s on VHS tape at home. I remember being beside myself excited when I saw Predator 2 land on VHS down at the video store.
Pixar fans will definitely want this toy with the long name. It’s officially called the “Toy Story Bandai Chogokin Combination Woody Robo Sheriff Star Figure.” It’s essentially five Toy Story chard terms that can combine to form one big Toy Story robot that will protect the water hole and whatever else you need protected.
Growing up, each time I played Monopoly there was a near brawl over who got to be the car. I mean, no one in their right mind wanted to be the shoe or thimble. Back in 2013, the lame iron was replaced with a cat, and now Hasbro is getting set to replace all your Monopoly tokens with new ones.
If you’re more Kirk than Picard, this is the Romulan Bird of Prey for you. This replica is modeled to look like the ship from the original Star Trek series.
The ship has a wingspan of 12-inches, and comes packed in a special 50th anniversary full color window box if you are the sort that buys cool stuff and never opens the package.
Back when I was a kid in the ’80s, the McDonald’s Happy Meal was the lunch I always hoped for. They had those cool boxes that you could keep and use for carrying your junk after lunch, and more importantly you got fries, burger, and a drink.
For as long as I can remember, I’ve loved LEGO bricks. While the basic blocks are great for all ages, sets like Technic and the mechanised Mindstorms kits have a tendency to be a bit complex for kids – especially when it comes to programming Mindstorms.
The first thing I wonder about this Marvel Legends Deadpool action figure is why they included a taco accessory and not a chimichanga. The 6-inch action figure also comes with dual katana swords, and two faces – one being the butter face.
I like Negan, he’s a stone cold killer that will literally smash your head in, but he’s kind of funny in a screwed up way. When he popped Glenn’s eye out with Lucille, it was brutal, and he was grinning the whole time.
This robot named Kuri resembles a Weeble or an oversize salt and pepper shaker, but even if the design is not very imaginative, it’s a helpful home robot. The interactive ‘bot wants to be your new robot best friend, and can play, entertain, and do other useful things.
Opening a beer is something that my uncle took pleasure in grossing me out with. He would crack them open using his teeth and I was always sure his teeth would shatter. He literally had a steel plate in his head, and once pulled his own impacted tooth with pliers – and it was the wrong tooth.
Pusheen the cat is one of those characters that turns up in all sorts of products. You might not know that Pusheen has a sister called Stormy. Stormy looks just like her sibling, only she’s fluffy like a sheep.
One of the most memorable video games I have ever played was BioShock. The original game and its underwater city of Rapture was a creepy mix of high-tech with art deco style. Some of the most remarkable characters from the game were the giant diving suit wearing Big Daddies.
When I was a kid, I had to fold my own paper airplanes with my own two hands. You kids have it easy with your fancy paper plane folding machine guns. All you have to do is stick 200 sheets of A5 paper into the back of this weapon, and instead of firing bullets when you pull the trigger, it will unleash a barrage of up to 120 paper airplanes every minute.
The other day we talked a bit about those Pikachu ice trays that let you chill your drinks with a cute Pokémon. If you want a snack to go along with those cold drinks, here is your chance to get a Pikachu cake pan.
