Sharknado 3 Bobbleheads Are Coming to Get You

Sharknado 3 Bobbleheads Are Coming to Get You
My daughter and I were looking for something to watch the other day and we landed on the original Sharknado. I don’t remember that blonde dude’s name off the top of my head, but I remember him as the dude who drove a Corvette ZR1 in 90210 back in the day.

Predator 2 City Hunter Action Figure is Way Cooler than Danny Glover

Predator 2 City Hunter Action Figure is Way Cooler than Danny Glover
The original Predator is one of my favorite action movies of the ’80s. I don’t feel the same about Predator 2 with Danny Glover – he just didn’t live up to Arnie. Apparently there was a video game based on Predator 2, which somehow I missed back in the day.

Back to the Future Hoverboard Lands on your Desk

Back to the Future Hoverboard Lands on your Desk
My favorite ’80s movie franchise is easily Back to the Future. While the third film set in the old west was a bit crappy, the first two films are some of my all-time favorite movies. I wanted one of those hoverboards so badly growing up I could taste it.

Star Trek VI USS Enterprise Model Lights up and Makes Sounds

Star Trek VI USS Enterprise Model Lights up and Makes Sounds
I was a big fan of the Star Trek movies that featured the cast of the original series. Those were some of the only movies my dad would ever go to back in the ’80s, and we saw them all.

The Walking Dead Daryl’s Crossbow Replica: Playing Dead

The Walking Dead Daryl’s Crossbow Replica: Playing Dead
Every time I watch The Walking Dead, I end up thinking about what would be the best weapons to fight a zombie horde. I think Daryl has the best weapon with the crossbow. It’s quiet, can shoot a reasonably long distance, and the bolts are reusable.

Behold My Fully Functional Death Star Beach Ball!

Behold My Fully Functional Death Star Beach Ball!
I’m not sure who decided that beach balls needed to be so lightweight that you can’t bean your brother with enough force to leave a mark. They also fly away with the slightest of breezes making a windy beach less than an ideal place for a game of catch.

Pacific Rim 7-inch Gypsy Danger is Missing an Arm

Pacific Rim 7-inch Gypsy Danger is Missing an Arm
If you are a fan of Pacific Rim, you will certainly recall the fight scene between Gypsy Danger and the Knifehead that ripped off its arm and killed one of the pilots. A couple new action figures have landed at ThinkGeek and the Gypsy Danger figure is missing an arm.

Star Trek Captain’s Chair Pool Float Begs for a Pool Party… Make it So

Star Trek Captain’s Chair Pool Float Begs for a Pool Party… Make it So
Summer will be here before you know it and you will be ready to head to the pool, lake, beach, or river to cool off. That means you will need a pool float so you don’t have to put any more effort than needed to float around staring at girls in bikinis.

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Action Figure: Beating Heart Sold Separately

Indiana Jones and the Temple of Doom Action Figure: Beating Heart Sold Separately
Harrison Ford has been in plenty of movies over the years, and many of them were very good. For any child of the ’80s, only two of those franchises really matter – Star Wars and Indiana Jones.

Trobo Storytelling Robot Gets Kids Interested in STEM

Trobo Storytelling Robot Gets Kids Interested in STEM
Growing up, my parents used to buy me these books that had my name in them. I thought they were the most awesome books ever written and I used them to dominate many Show-and-Tell days in elementary school.

13x13x13 Puzzle Cube Will Tire out Your Brain and Hands

13x13x13 Puzzle Cube Will Tire out Your Brain and Hands
Do you know someone who’s always bragging about his Rubik’s Cube solving skills? Get the Pillow 13x13x13 IQ Cube and lob it at that person’s head. Then dare him to solve it. Not only is it an irregular Rubik’s Cube knockoff, it’s also freakin’ huge.

Giant Stuffed Dinosaur: Jurassic Plush

Giant Stuffed Dinosaur: Jurassic Plush
I’m not so sure about getting your kids a giant stuffed dinosaur. It makes them think that dinosaurs are nice and friendly, when in reality they want to bite you and stomp you with their massive feet.

Captain Jules’ Useless Box is Truly Useless

Captain Jules’ Useless Box is Truly Useless
I am sure we have all received gifts before, looked at them, and wondered what purpose they were supposed to serve. Some gifts are simply useless, and it’s the thought that counts… so they say. Perhaps the most useless gift I have ever seen is right here – Captain Jules’ Useless Box.

Nathan Drake Action Figure: Not as Valuable as Sir Francis Drake’s Ring

Nathan Drake Action Figure: Not as Valuable as Sir Francis Drake’s Ring
If you have ever played the Uncharted game franchise, you will know who Nathan Drake is. Drake always reminded me a bit of a modern Indiana Jones. I think it’s all the brown and leather that reminds of Indy.

Film-scale Serenity Replica Costs as Much as a Nice Used Car

Film-scale Serenity Replica Costs as Much as a Nice Used Car
Back in July, I talked about an awesome film-scale Serenity model that was on display from QMx. A lot of people got all hot and bothered at the thought of owning that model. If you were one of those who got excited, you can own your own now.

BioShock Infinite Booker DeWitt Action Figure Has the Look of Constant Surprise

BioShock Infinite Booker DeWitt Action Figure Has the Look of Constant Surprise
I really liked Bioshock Infinite; I thought it was a cool game even if the original was better in my opinion. Booker DeWitt is the hero of the game and about the only time players get a look at his face is on the cover of the game.
