    This is the Rampaging Kaiju Garden Gnome available from ThinkGeek ($25). It stands 9-inches tall and is in the middle of eating a bunch of gnomes. Can you believe it can actually hold things in its little arms? That's cute. Still, I'd like to see this thing go head-to-head ... / Continue →

    Meet Boomer, a new rolling robotic dinosaur toy from the makers of Zoomer, the robotic dog. I am not familiar with Zoomer. Boomer rolls around making dinosaur noises, changing his eye color, and can follow your hand and try to bite it. Apparently he can also be trained to l... / Continue →

    Remember the opening scene in Jurassic Park when they're trying to unload a raptor and it yanks that dude into its transport cage and murders him? (Video after the jump) Well now that cage is on eBay, and you and I are going halvsies. "Not interested." I SAID WE'RE GOING F*... / Continue →

    Come hither. This is a paper t-rex optical illusion that appears to follow you with its head as you walk around it. Cool, but I still want one of those creepy paintings that follows you with its eyes as you move around the room. "Don't masturbate paintings" I call them. Kee... / Continue →

    This is the $600 meteorite and dinosaur leg bone wedding ring made and sold by Etsy purveyor JewelrybyJohan. Is $600 expensive for a wedding ring? Correct answer: Not if there's dino bone and meteorite involved. I do think it's a little insensitive though that they chose to p... / Continue →

    A new (but still long dead) t-rex like dinosaur species has been discovered in Utah, leading paleontologists to believe that large, bipedal carnivorous dinos were much more widely distributed than previously thought. Which is great news because no matter where my time machine ... / Continue →

    In news even sexier than a Pandora for p0rn, a new tyrannosaur species has been discovered in Utah. Lythronax argestes ("king of gore") lived some 10-12 million years before Tyrannosaurus Rex, and may have been the t-rex's "great uncle". My great uncle? No clue, he's been in... / Continue →

    Astronaut Karen Nyberg made this stuffed dinosaur toy for her young son out of scrap supplies she found aboard the International Space Station. Hopefully not anything important like I would have done. "GW -- where did you get that big red button?" I found it. "Found it wher... / Continue →

    This is a video of Traddino, a 51-foot, 11-ton, walking, fire-breathing dragon robot that was just named the new Guinness World Record Holder for "world's largest walking robot". The winner before that? Who cares. All I know is it looks like that thing is about to crispy-fry... / Continue →

    These are the ball-jointed dragons made by CuartosDolls in Russia (at least I think it's Russia). They can be posed in almost any position thanks to every body segment having its own ball joint. Want one? Well you're in luck, because the maker is selling them, with white dra... / Continue →

    This is a video from (where else?) Japan of a guy in a super-realistic looking raptor costume chasing an unsuspecting victim in an office building. The dude seems genuinely concerned that he's being chased by a dinosaur. And can you blame him? Of course you can, dinosaurs we... / Continue →

    Note: Larger version HERE for more detail. I don't have a foyer by the way, I was just daydreaming about how cool it would be to have a house with a foyer instead of an apartment with a bug problem. This is the chainsaw carved dinosaur created by Scott Dow of ANIMALISTIC Chai... / Continue →

    Meet Nasutoceratops titusi ('big-nose horned face'), a new species of dinosaur related to the triceratops that was recently discovered in Utah. I think he's kind of cute looking. I mean I'm not going to ask him to prom or anything, but only because I think it would be cruel t... / Continue →
