    Did you know there's a new Star Wars movie coming out? That was news to me. Of course I only get my news from the postman who makes the trek to my mountain cave twice a year (once if the bridge trolls are on strike), so I'm usually a little behind. This is a video of Blendte... / Continue →

    These are a bunch of shots of the interior of the upcoming LEGO Ghostbusters Firehouse Headquarters set. Looks pretty good. I am going to have so much fun building this and playing with it. I mean, provided my parents don't ruin my whole life by not buying it for me. "So yo... / Continue →

    This is a video from Youtuber PowerModz of Tickle Me Elmo getting blasted with a jet engine. You know, because some people have jet engines mounted to the back of their trucks and like to experiment with them. Poor Elmo never stood a chance. Now I totally get why they named ... / Continue →

    This is short video from the Steinhart Aquarium at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco detailing how biologists keep captive octopuses stimulated so they don't get depressed. Apparently they give them puzzles and toys and BODY MASSAGES. I wish I got body massa... / Continue →

    This is a video of three kittens reviewing the new BB-8 droid toy. And by reviewing I mean chasing and swatting at. There is also a puppy version. Both were made by Vanity Fair to promote the adoption of pets from the Humane Society Of New York. If I could adopt all the pup... / Continue →

    This is the $110 Millennium Falcon quadrocopter made and sold by Air Hogs. It has lights and sound effects and a one hour charge gets 8 - 12 minutes of flight time at a distance up to 250-feet. That is pretty far away. If I ever flew it further than 40 feet away I would just... / Continue →

    That's pretty twisted, even for a Jawa. This is a video from the folks at uBreakiFix highlighting the inner workings of the new BB-8 droid toy. I'm not going to lie, I was half expecting him to be filled with nothing but The Force. I was wrong though. He's got a gyroscope ... / Continue →

    So apparently several parents who have never seen Star Wars are complaining about the Princess Leia Slave Outfit action figure being sold at Target (among other stores). Some solid quotes from father Fred Hill, who is mad as hell about the toy, proving that a new species of ou... / Continue →

    This is the Back To The Future levitating hoverboard desktop toy available from ThinkGeek ($40). It floats on a series of rare earth magnets and will hover back and forth after given a push. Sadly, it is probably the closest many of us will ever come to getting to play with a... / Continue →
