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.

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.

Life-like Silicone Avatar’s Na’vi Babies: Creepy, Cute, Or Both?

We can’t recall if James Cameron’s sci-fi fantasy Avatar did feature any baby Na’vi and not sure if the sequel will have any. In any case if you are curious what the sentient alien humanoids’ tiny ones will look like, well, Spanish hyperrealistic baby doll maker Babyclon is here to satisfy your curious mind. Meet the Life-like Avatar Silicone Babies. At €1,950 a pop (around US$2,040), these baby Na’vi are as real as they can gets, boasting insanely realistic, if not creepy, features and it is totally poseable and not to mention, soft to touch (which add to their creepiness).

Meet Morris, A Fish Plush Toy That You Can Turn Inside Out To See Its Innards

Plush toys of animals are often cute and cuddly. Beyond that, they are just, well, plush toys. There’s really nothing much to explore beyond what it has on the outside, but that’s not case with Morris. Morris, named after the deceased gold fishes of creator and multidisciplinary artist Rachel Ciavarella, is a fish plush toy with a twist, like almost literally. Morris can be turned inside out, exposing its innards in all its glory (if you can even described that as ‘glory’). Continue reading Meet Morris, A Fish Plush Toy That You Can Turn Inside Out To See Its Innards

Tomica Darth Vader Semi Is The Father Of All Star Cars Because Why Not?

Star Wars has absolutely no relation to automotive, but that didn’t stop companies from trying to associate with one of the century’s greatest sci-fi movie franchise. Automakers have already churned out Star Wars-themed Dodge vehicles, a Fiat 500E, and even an over-the-top C5 Corvette-based Darth Vader Car, and so it is not a surprised to find Star Wars-themed die-cast cars too, which Takara Tomy’s Tomica line has been turning out for quite sometime now. Speaking of Tomica, if you have those adorable Star Wars die-cast cars, dubbed Star Cars, then you would probably want this father of all Star Cars, the Star Wars Star Cars Darth Vader Car Carrier. Continue reading Tomica Darth Vader Semi Is The Father Of All Star Cars Because Why Not?

Cute, Cuddly Plush Toys Turn Feisty With Sharp Teeth When Squeezed

You are not wrong to think plush toys in the likeness of animals are cute, but we can’t say the same for the William Mark Feisty Pets Plush Toys you see here. If anything, the product name should give you a hint or two. Seriously, they don’t call it ‘feisty’ for nothing. Under normal situation, Feisty Pets Plush Toy looks pretty much like any plush toys, you know, all cute and cuddly that makes you go “awww…” but like some real animals, it does have its feisty side too and you can trigger it by squeezing the head. And when you do that, adorable plushy instantly turn from cute to monstrous, displaying its frowning, shifty eyes and menacing sharp teeth. Now, that, my friends, is the real Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde of the plush toys world and it could be the best thing to ever happen since Gremlins.

“Real-Life” Interpretations Of 6 Y.O. Doodles Seriously Creeps Us Out

Kids drawings are cute and often puts a smile on grown ups’ face but what if the drawings of a six-year-old are turned into “real-life” versions using the magic of Photoshop? Well, that, my friends, was exactly what Dom’s father did. Dom’s dad decided to take his son’s drawings and recreate them into subjects that fit into the real world and the results…. well, lets just say that some of them resulted in me having nightmares after that. Don’t get me wrong. Dom doodles were great for kids of his age, however, the adorable scale just went south, plunges straight into the core of the Earth and into a place called hell because some of these real-life interpretations are so insanely hideous to a point being blasphemous, well, at least for the animals, they are.

Meet Mastodon, The Biggest Foam Dart-shooting NERF Blaster Ever

No. Mastodon is not a relative to the prehistoric shark, Megalodon. In fact, it is not even remotely related to any living things, ancient or not, much less to a shark. It is NERF’s biggest foam dart-shooting blaster to date, though technically, it is not the biggest NERF gun cos’ we already saw how big the biggest NERF Blaster was. But it is true that Mastodon is the biggest factory-produced blaster in NERF arsenal to date, stretching a nearly 3-feet (86 cm) long and weighing in as much as a laptop at 7.3 lbs (3.3 kg). Not only it is the biggest NERF blaster yet, but it is also the first motorized NERF Mega blaster, boasting a rotary magazine and powered by a motor that enables it to spit out 24 foam darts 100 feet (about 30 meters) downrange in under 20 seconds.
