Finally, Indominus Rex From Jurassic World Can Be Yours To Control

Yes. Yes. I know. The Jurassic World hype is over, but that does not mean we can’t talk about the over-the-top, genetically-engineered, fictional star dinosaur, Indominus Rex, especially when there’s a robotic version which money can buy. Meet the Zoomer Dino Jurassic World Indominus Rex Robot, a remote control toy robot that allows you to control this ferocious dinosaur as opposed to merely displaying it. So, great, it moves, but unfortunately, this biped creatures can’t stomp around your parquet flooring like the fake real-deal. Instead it rolls on wheels.

Man Creates Working 3D Printed RC Motorcycle With Moving Rider

DIY stuff doesn’t necessary make things cheaper, but the process offers gratification that money can’t buy. Gratification like the ability to build your own radio controlled version of the 2016 Draxter Concept Drag Bike and maybe, even a 2016 Suzuki GSX-RR MotoGP. We already piqued your interest, didn’t we? No? Well, then perhaps the fact that the aforementioned scaled, RC versions each has a rider that moves will. A RC motorcycle is, of course, nothing new, and I am sure a 3D printed one isn’t either, but one that features an articulated rider with arms, head and torso that moves like a real person riding like Brett Turnage’s creations? And DIY? Now, that’s something worthy of any motorcycle enthusiast, tinkerer, or RC aficionado’s attention. Continue reading Man Creates Working 3D Printed RC Motorcycle With Moving Rider

LEGO Boost Is Like The Mindstorms Kit For Pre-teen Kids

What you see here is the LEGO Boost 17101 Robotics System, a newly introduced learning toy set from the Danish toy maker that sits between the simplicity of regular LEGO and LEGO Technics sets, and the complexity offered by LEGO Mindstorm kits. Targeted at pre-teens, LEGO Boost lets kids put together a range of interactive toys, such a robot you see pictured above, using a mix of 3 sensing bricks called Boost bricks and aplenty of other LEGO elements (843 pieces, to be exact). Like Mindstorms, the fun and learning does not end when the construction is complete. Continue reading LEGO Boost Is Like The Mindstorms Kit For Pre-teen Kids

Watch The Beauty And Destruction Of A 100 MPH RC Car In Slow Motion

Adrenalin junkies love the thrill that speed brings and the easiest way to get the speed fix is via cars. But if you don’t mind, a really, really fast RC car could give the same level of speed satisfaction. Ok, maybe not all RC cars can, but you surely can get your blood pumping with TRAXXAS XO-1 4WD electric RC car, a big boy toy we featured years ago that’s well capable 100 mph or more. However, while XO-1 maybe a scale car, it could be as dangerous a real car. Don’t believe? Just check out The Slow Mo Guys’ latest slow-mo video: 100MPH RC Car in Slow-mo.

Fools Pay Homage To Michael Jordan With This Awesome Vinyl Figure

What you see here is Hong Kong independent toy maker Fools’ latest vinyl called Three King Two Three, which is a homage to one of the greatest basketball player of our time: Michael Jordan – complete in his famous Chicago Bulls number 23 jersey, but obviously, this collectible is not sanction by Chicago Bulls, nor it is licensed by NBA, or the man himself. We are not sure how it works, but I am guessing, there’s a loop hole in this licensing game since Fools did not explicitly said that it was Jordan. Anyways, priced at $249 plus shipping, this 13-inch vinyl figure comes with a handful of miniature basketballs by “Floating” sized to the vinyl figure. Continue reading Fools Pay Homage To Michael Jordan With This Awesome Vinyl Figure

Enormous 16-Foot Wingspan RC Airbus Is The Coolest Thing To Happen Indoor

If you ever tried your hands on any remote control aircraft, you will know picking up the skill isn’t easy. Most RC flyers, however slow they are, requires quick eye and hand coordination, and also a good sense of direction. Meaning, you should know in an instance the left and right of the aircraft regardless of its orientation with respect to you, the operator. So, for someone starting out, he or she can only watch in admiration as veterans haul big-ass RC aircrafts like the 4.95 meter (16.2 feet) Boeing 747-400 into the air. If only those giant flying toys are slower, eh? If only. Well, what do you know? As it turns out, there is. It ain’t a Boeing, though; it is an Airbus A320 and it is no less freaking huge, and best of all, it flies slow enough to be piloted indoors.

LEGO Minifig Got Hit By Growth Ray, Turned Into 7-inch Jumbo-size Minifig

Danish toy maker LEGO may have these jumbo-sized, not so minifig, minifigs in their stores (somewhere, I think) and if LEGO really do have them, I am sure they are not yours to buy; they will be just display pieces to spruce up the stores. Anyways, if you desire to own one oversized minifig (and why the hell not, right?), you can cobble up one unconvincing example from standard LEGO bricks, or you can look to Etsy seller MLARTS Vinyl Graphics to fulfil your dream. This particular example here, called Jumbo 3D-printed LEGO Original Minifig, was 3D-printed from ABS and towers at 7-inch tall – which is over 4.5 times larger than the original minifig.

Yes, we are talking about Rogue One: A Star War Story which the Guangzhou-born actor, best known for his role as the legendary martial artist Ip Man, starred as a faithful Jedi follower Chirrut Îmwe.
