S.H.Figuarts And Amazon Slashes The Flash Action Figure’s Price

Heads up, fans of Justice League (especially, the movie). Amazon has slashed Tamashii Nations S.H.Figuarts The Flash Action Figure by 28 percent. It is now selling at $43.48. If you want one, it’d be a good time to bag one. The figure is, of course, based on the Barry Allen/The Flash (played by Ezra Miller) from the Justice League (Atlas Entertainment, 2017) movie. Apparently, it is the first time the character has been created in the S.H.Figuarts’ line. Continue reading S.H.Figuarts And Amazon Slashes The Flash Action Figure’s Price

In Thailand, Realistic-looking Giant Cockroach Plush Toy Is A Thing

Cockroach is not even remotely close to being adorable. In fact, it is one insect that is being frown upon by nearly all humans, but that does not stop one store in Thailand from selling plush toys of giant roaches that even has a rather endearing name, ‘Peter the Cockroach’, to boot. If the looks didn’t get you, perhaps the name will? Maybe? As you can see, Peter is very, very realistic. I’d say it is photo-realistic – short of being hyperrealistic – and it is anatomically correct too, complete with the requisite antenna (feelers?), spiky legs, wings and the works.

One Japanese Twitter user by the handle of @ryuji_maker has made an awesome grenade launcher entirely out of cardboard and disposable wooden chopsticks for some minor decorations (namely, the hand grip). @ryuji_maker himself is not sure which real-life weapon he has modeled this after, but we really don’t care because, it freaking works.

Startup Solved One Major Issue With Water Gun, Made It Very High Tech

The original Super Soaker pretty much reinvented water gun. It was considered the most advanced water gun of its time until it was usurped by swappable magazine variety and subsequently, the one that shoots water pellets, and now this: Spyra One. Billed as the next-generation water gun, Spyra One promised to deliver consistent pressure, right until the last drop. Speaking of last drop, Spyra One’s innovative design shoots not in spray, but it ejects “water bullets”, each containing 30 ml (1 fl oz.), without actual encapsulation like the Xploderz.

Purported LEGO Star Wars Porg UCS Set Surfaced On A Ukrainian Online Store

Porg, the penguin-like furry creature from the last Star Wars movie, The Last Jedi, is adorable. It was one character that was there for no apparent reason other than being cute. Now, here’s the question: does being cute warrants it to be immortalized as a LEGO set, or a UCS set even? Apparently, it does, or at least according to a listing on a Ukrainian store, Будинок іграшок. Continue reading Purported LEGO Star Wars Porg UCS Set Surfaced On A Ukrainian Online Store
