LEGO Architecture US Capitol Kit Needs a Giant “Independence Day” Ship to Make it Perfect

LEGO Architecture US Capitol Kit Needs a Giant “Independence Day” Ship to Make it Perfect
I spent many an hour growing up making buildings and cars out of LEGO. Inevitably, I would destroy the buildings in some sort of Godzilla fantasy. LEGO has a new official building kit that lets you make a blocky version of the US Capitol Building.

LEGO Overwatch McCree’s Revolver Keeps the Peace

LEGO Overwatch McCree’s Revolver Keeps the Peace
I’m moving to Colorado from Texas this week and we plan on doing lots of outdoor activities in our new state since we can actually go outside without bursting into flames. I freely admit that I am worried about bears.

Fallout Power Helmet Bank Won’t Hold Bottle Caps

Fallout Power Helmet Bank Won’t Hold Bottle Caps
I long ago left the old T-45 Power armor behind, and now schlep around the wasteland in by badass flamed out X-01 power armor. T-45 is for plebs. ThinkGeek has a sweet Fallout Power Helmet coin bank that will hold your quarters, but won’t hold caps because the slot is too thin.

LEGO Planet Express Ship: Our Minifig Crew Is Replaceable, Your Package Isn’t

LEGO Planet Express Ship: Our Minifig Crew Is Replaceable, Your Package Isn’t
I didn’t know that designing LEGO constructs in the virtual world was a thing. It clearly is because this spaceship for Futurama was designed by a dude called Nicola Stocchi using LEGO Digital Designer. The digitally-rendered spacecraft has 5112 parts and looks gigantic.

Labyrinth Funko POP! Figures Won’t Steal Your Baby Brother

Labyrinth Funko POP! Figures Won’t Steal Your Baby Brother
I watched Labyrinth growing up and the movie seriously creeped me out. Still, it had Miss Hottie 1986 Jennifer Connelly in it so I watched. David Bowie was one weird bastard in this movie.  Still I have fond memories of the ’80s thanks in part to this film.

Giant NERF Gun Will Knock Out Your Soul

Giant NERF Gun Will Knock Out Your Soul
I’ve been involved in enough NERF wars to know you want to protect two specific parts of your body… or technically four. You protect your eyes and your balls. Everything else can take a hit with no ill effects.

Official LEGO Creator Expert VW Beetle Set is Bugtastic

Official LEGO Creator Expert VW Beetle Set is Bugtastic
I used to live for building cars out of my LEGO blocks, and I clearly recall the teachers having to gather up all the wheels at pre-K to stop the 4-year-old brawls from happening because that jerk James tried to bogart all the wheels.

Deadpool 1/4 Scale Action Figure Only Lacks Chimichanga
NECA has a really cool Deadpool action figure coming your way in January of next year. Yeah, that is a long time away, but you may still have some Christmas money left then. The action figure is a gigantic 18-inches tall.

NERF Terrascout RC Drone Blaster Puts Eyes Out from Afar

NERF Terrascout RC Drone Blaster Puts Eyes Out from Afar
Growing up, my brother was a nervous sort and you could freak him out easily with just about any toy that moved on its own. I’m pretty sure it had to do with the flick Child’s Play that we stayed up and watched late one night or maybe Maximum Overdrive, where everything wanted to kill you.

Fan Makes Awesome Gundam Pokémon Figures

Fan Makes Awesome Gundam Pokémon Figures
The only things that Pokémon and Gundam really have in common are that they both come from Japan. At least that is all they had in common until Imgur user Khrisamisu was inspired to create these Pokémon models in Gundam style.

Anki Overdrive Review: Slot Car Fun without Slots or Wires

Anki Overdrive Review: Slot Car Fun without Slots or Wires
When I was a kid, one of my favorite activities was to play with slot cars. These scale car sets can be a whole lot of fun, though it’s no fun when your car jumps out of the slots.

Brik Books Build-on MacBook Cover Adds Glorious Blocky Bulk

Brik Books Build-on MacBook Cover Adds Glorious Blocky Bulk
Sometimes having a job is complete bullshit. We all have those days when the boss is being a dick and you don’t feel like working as much as you feel like rubbing hot sauce in his eyes and then beating him with that shitty copier they force the entire office to use.

Deadpool Life-Size Replica Can’t Grow Back a Hand

Deadpool Life-Size Replica Can’t Grow Back a Hand
Deadpool is one of the coolest superheroes there is, even if he isn’t really a hero. We see all sorts of full-size action figures pop up at Entertainment Earth and the thing they usually have in common are price tags well into the thousands of dollars range.

Pharrell Williams Action Figure is the Man in the Brown Hat

Pharrell Williams Action Figure is the Man in the Brown Hat
Remember when Pharrell Williams turned up in that terrible hat? You know, that thing that looked like it was straight out of Curious George. I mean I like his music mostly, but that hat was downright weird.
