Playmobil Adds Marty McFly’s Truck to Its Back to the Future Playsets: Great Scott!

Playmobil Adds Marty McFly’s Truck to Its Back to the Future Playsets: Great Scott!
Presumably, because its previously released time-traveling DeLorean playset sold like hotcakes (and how could it not?), Playmobil is releasing another set, this time in the form of Marty McFly’s often overlooked pickup truck (affiliate link). I’ve already bought two – one for playing with and one for keeping mint in its packaging.

Prolific designer toymaker Fools Paradise is releasing a beastly figure that sees a rugby player wearing parts of the RX-78-2 Gundam as protective gear. The figure is called Lowfool Steel of League Team 01-GD. Yep, the toymakers are saying it’s for a robot rugby league, despite the face mask.

Funko Turbo Man Action Figure Reissue: It’s Scalper Time!
Someone at Walmart slipped up, and Christmas has come early for toy collectors. A few lucky shoppers were able to grab what appears to be a 2021 reissue of the Turbo Man action figure from Arnold Schwarzenegger’s classic holiday movie Jingle All the Way, in which the action star plays a dad who goes to great lengths to obtain the fictional (and shortly real) toy for his son.

Modder Turned Nintendo’s Virtual Boy into a Handheld

Modder Turned Nintendo’s Virtual Boy into a Handheld
The Virtual Boy was Nintendo’s ill-fated attempt to create a 3D virtual reality gaming system back in the 1990s. The system required that gamers align their eyes with a tabletop viewer, much like those things they make you look into when you get a vision test at the DMV.

DitherPaint 1-Bit Paint App Takes You Back to the Days of MacPaint

DitherPaint 1-Bit Paint App Takes You Back to the Days of MacPaint
I remember back in 1984 when I got my hands on the first Apple Macintosh computer how excited I was to use MacPaint. I had seen it demonstrated at a convention, and the idea that I could create my own artwork on my computer was pretty awe-inspiring to me as a 16-year-old kid.

Taito Egret II Mini Arcade Cabinet Can Switch from Landscape to Portrait: Old Bird, Old Trick
Many popular arcade games are side scrollers, but there are just as many classic ones that play from top to bottom, like shmups. Well, mostly shmups. The important thing is that someone at Taito had a stroke of genius and revived a forward-looking feature from one of its old arcade cabinets.

Craft Your Own 3D Pixelated Papercraft Mario Figure: It’s-a Me, Mario!
Mario: he could never commit a crime and get away with it because absolutely everybody would be able to pick him out of a police lineup. I mean unless he took his hat off and shaved his mustache, then nobody would have any clue who he was.

This Pac-Man “Neon” Light Is Pretty A-Maze-ing

This Pac-Man “Neon” Light Is Pretty A-Maze-ing
We know that Pac-Man has a thing for dots and ghosts. And while the yellow dot-gobbler and his ghostly enemies look pretty great as pixel art, I think they’re even better all lit up in neon.

Pac-Man and Ghost Planters Gobble Up Dirt and Power Pills
If you’re trying to grow plants, you’ll need seeds, dirt, water, and sunlight if you hope to keep them alive. But did you know that plants grow extra strong when you feed them power pills? At least that’s what Pac-Man told me.

Voltron Castle of Lions PC Case Mod: Activate Interlock!

Voltron Castle of Lions PC Case Mod: Activate Interlock!
There are good ideas, and then there are great ideas. And modder Robdp82 building a gaming PC (mostly emulation with some light e-gaming) into a 1984 Voltron Castle of Lions playset transcends even a great idea, and we can only hope when aliens finally visit earth this is the first thing they see so they don’t just immediately death-ray us all.
