I remember when E.T. came out at the theater when I was a kid. I wanted to go see it so bad I couldn’t stand it, but my parents wouldn’t take me. Instead, I had to wait the average 97 years it took movies to land on video back in the ’80s to see it.
NERF is showing off an awesome new gun to fling foamy death at your friends. This time out it’s not darts that you shoot though. This thing shoots little foam balls at up to 102 feet per second, or about 70 mph.
A dude called Tim Schwalfenberg has created one of the coolest LEGO video game recreations ever. He took a scene from the cinematic zombie shooter The Last of Us and replicated it completely with LEGO bricks.
Growing up, there were only stormtroopers with white armor, and the occasional black outfit on a TIE fighter pilot, but in the new Star Wars flicks you get some red and even a silver stormtrooper. If you want to add a little variety to your stark black and white trooper collection, here’s your chance to own some cool action figures.
The Space Shuttle was awesome. Granted, there were some tragic accidents during the Shuttle program that cost the lives of astronauts, but overall the program was a raging success. OliveSeon created a LEGO tribute to the Space Shuttle, and it is awesome.
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.
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.
Two of the most frustrating things that I played growing up were Super Mario Bros. and the Rubik’s Cube. As a kid in the ’80s you were guaranteed to get at least one Rubik’s Cube each Christmas or birthday.
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 my all time favorite holiday movies is A Christmas Story. Ralphie and his quest for a Red Ryder BB gun is the stuff of Christmas legend. His old man and his legendary ability to curse makes the movie that much better.
Guardians of the Galaxy is one of my all time favorite Marvel movies, and I thought Rocket Racoon was a pretty cool character. A unique new Rocket toy is landing soon, and it looks like this bad attitude racoon came right out of an ’80s Saturday morning cartoon.
Ford is teasing a new LEGO Speed Champions kit that lets you build up two iconic race cars that each won their class in the 24 Hours of Le Mans. The set includes the GT40 that won in 1966 and the 2016 Ford GT that won in 2016.
