    This is a sneak peek at the upcoming Ninja Turtle LEGO sets based on the movie. Personally, I think they all leave something to be desired. Particularly the Ninja Turtle sewer base set. So, just for the record, I will only be buying these sets for the unique minifigs. Kee... / Continue →

    Fallout is hands down one of my favorite game franchises. I platinum trophied Fallout 3 and New Vegas and all the DLC. So, obviously, I will be asking my mom for an advance on my allowance to buy this set of Vault-Tec bobbleheads. They're going for $15 apiece (at ThinkGeek o... / Continue →

    This is the C-3PO Star Wars action figure carrying case that's been repurposed as an electric guitar. Me? I've always imagined C-3PO crushed in a Death Star trash compactor then cut into cubes and repurposed as paper weights. Everyone knows the Darth Vader collector's case... / Continue →

    AHAHHAHAHAHAHA LOOK AT THAT DOG! OMG I WANT TO FEEL ONE OF ITS EARS IN MY MOUTH SO BAD. This is the Tidy Dog (currently a Kickstarter project), a chest for dog toys that rewards a treat whenever your dog returns a toy after playing with it. I can see it now -- Day 1: My dog ... / Continue →

    This is a video of LEGO robot CUBESTORMER 3 setting the world record for Rubik's Cube solving. It completes the cube in 3.253 seconds, two seconds faster than its father CUBESTORMER 2's previous record of 5.27 seconds. Of course there's also this robot that can solve any cube... / Continue →

    This is a video of a 141-car model train traveling in an infinite spiral and loop. I like that couch. I think my parents had the same couch when I was a kid. OR DID THEY? Dum dum dum! Now that I think about it I think ours was different. You know how much cereal I lost in... / Continue →

    Remember that Barbie doll artist Nickolay Lamm made using the Center for Disease Control's actual average measurements for a 19-year old girl? Well now he's back with a crowdfunding project to manufacture a line of realistic bodied Lammily dolls. Annnnnnnd he already met doub... / Continue →

    This is Mortal Coil, a 3-D printed skull slinky designed by Ryan Kittleson. You can buy one on Shapeways for $50. Skulls are cool. We all have one. Some people just have less going on inside theirs. You know who I'm talking about. I'm talking about that really stupid pers... / Continue →

    This is the X-Mansion (aka the Xavier Institute for Higher Learning) built by Glen Bricker (great name for a LEGOManiac! Unless it's not your real name, in which case it's a DECENT pseudonym). It's up for consideration right now on the LEGO Cuuso website but I've got the feel... / Continue →

    This is the letter that 7-year old Charlotte Benjamin wrote the LEGO company complaining there aren't enough female figure playsets, and the ones they do sell are predominately homemaker related. A valid argument. Plus her penmanship blows mine out of the water. You're gonna... / Continue →

    Hasbro has announced a new line of Transformer toys that abandon the old, complicated transformation process and will instead transform with "the push of a button or flick of the wrist." Why? I'm not sure, but I think it's either because kids are getting lazier or Hasbro's ge... / Continue →

    This is the $18 Homer Simpson Mr. Potato Head Doll sold by Entertainment Earth (who apparently sell every kind of Mr Potato Doll ever). Sadly, he doesn't even come with interchangeable parts -- you only get what you see here. I'm not even sure he has a butt flap that opens so... / Continue →

    Meet Windblade, Hasbro's new female addition to the Transformers universe. Windblade was designed as the result of a fan poll in which people got to vote for a new Transformer's main characteristics. Apparently one of the winning characteristics was 'lady parts'. You know I ... / Continue →

    This is the $75 Fisher-Price Ipad Apptivity Seat (already in existence: an iPad potty chair). It's a baby chair with an iPad dock that dangles over your little bundle of bad vision. Will it help your child grow up to be a technology professional? No. Will it give them somet... / Continue →

    Starscream, everybody's third favorite Transformer, is now available in hoodie form from 80'sTees. The moderately priced $60 hoodie even creates a pair of wings when you raise your arms. Rumor has it if you jump off something three stories or higher you can actually fly! "Yo... / Continue →

    SHOES OFF THE FURNITURE. This is a commercial for GoldieBlox, a new line of engineering toys aimed at girls. The ad features a giant Rube Golderg machine (designed by the same guy who created the one for OK Go's music video and not designed by women like it should have been) ... / Continue →

    Because Japan always gets way cooler stuff than the rest of the world, this is the line of Super Mario toys purveyor of barely-burgers McDonald's will be giving away in the country's Happy Meals. Here in the US? No clue, probably a pamphlet about exercising. All the Mario to... / Continue →

    This is a preview of the LEGO Disney Princess playsets scheduled for release sometime next year. So if you were hoping to score some for Christmas, forget about it. The sets come with those weird little figurines used in the 'Friends' line of LEGO for girl playsets instead of... / Continue →

    This is a series of photos from abandoned toy factories. Presumably after the dolls came to life and murdered all the workers, but possibly because analog toys have taken a backseat to video games for the past 30 years. Maybe kids just aren't playing with dolls anymore. I re... / Continue →

    This is a commercial for LEGO featuring a father and son bonding over building things together. It's pretty cute. Plus the kid speaks in a sweet British accent, which I'm going to start mimicking for the rest of the day so everybody things I'm a dandy lad. Here comes the som... / Continue →
