You know. I am actually glad that Adam Savage is done with Mythbuster. Why? Because, it is only then we get to see him getting the time to building and modding stuff that wows us. The latest build, a custom 1,000 Shot NERF Rival Nemesis, really had me drooling all over. For the uninitiated, the original NERF Rival Nemesis is good for 100 shot before needing to reload. Given that it is an automatic NERF blaster, 100 shot is hardly enough for a serious NERF skirmish. Continue reading Adam Savage Turned A NERF Rival Nemesis Into A 1,000 Shot Beast
Back in May 4th, 2018, the unofficial Star Wars Day, avid LEGO builder Grant Davis collaborated with fellow LEGO enthusiast Eli Willsea to build a huge-ass LEGO diorama of a brief scene from the 7th Star Wars movie, Star Wars: The Force Awakens where Rey was scavenging through a broken down Star Destroyer. Originally, Grant Davis had planned and started the build by himself, but it ended as a full collaboration with his good friend Willsea. Continue reading Watch A 7’ LEGO Diorama Of Rey Scavenging The Destroyer Being Built
I am sure everyone here is familiar with the green army men – especially those who grew up in the 80s. If not, Pixar’s Toy Story should ring a bell because they were in the franchise too. Green army men are hardly action figures. They were tiny, not posable and often crudely made with rough lines that lacked details, but because they are now considered icons of the toys of the past, it kind of feel endearing to see them again – even if they are doing yoga poses and not in their usual combat poses. So, yeah, the Yoga Joes Green Army Men Toy are a thing. Continue reading Oh, Look, Green Army Men Toys Ditched Weapons In Favor Of Yoga!
Photography is a widely enjoyed hobby and so is custom LEGO creations. While so, there are not many custom LEGO creations that are photography-related. At least, not that we have come across that is worthy of mention. This one here however, from Taiwan-based photographer Helen Sham, is different. Any photography buff will immediately recognize this creation. It is a Hasselblad 503CX Film Camera, created entirely out of LEGO. Continue reading With Your Help, This LEGO Hasselblad 503CX Could Become A Real LEGO Set
Remember Brent Waller? Well, the Australian LEGO enthusiast is back again, this time with a custom Batman set that will completely blow your mind. Waller’s latest creation is this massive, 6-foot (!) LEGO Batcave that comes complete with Wayne Manor sitting a top. Looking at it is like looking at a massive 3D cross-section blueprint of Batman’s sophisticated abode. Continue reading The Details In This 6’ Tall Custom LEGO Batcave Will Blow Your Mind!
The proliferation of robots is imminent and it will have profound effects on the society such as, namely, lost of jobs, and not to mention the possibility of the existence of evil overlord called Skynet. While so, we never ceased to be amazed by what robots are capable of, even if they are just LEGO like this custom LEGO Car Factory realized by one Daniele Benedettelli. What you see here is a fully autonomous LEGO car factory built with LEGO elements. Continue reading If Minifigures Had A Job, This LEGO Car Factory Will Put Them Out Of Job
Ever dream of sitting in the hot seat of a car on trailblazing run on the familiar orange plastic Hot Wheels track? Well, now you can – all thanks to the official Mattel and GoPro collaboration. With the Mattel Hot Wheels Zoom In, you can strap on a GoPro Hero4 Session (or any compatible GoPro) in a secure and proper manner, and let it take on the orange track. Continue reading Hot Wheels Zoom In Is A $1 Toy Car Made For Use With GoPro Camera
Over the years, Batman has lost his appeal against characters with ‘real’ superpower, but one thing that continues to captivate me is his gadgets, more specifically, his ride, the Batmobile. In a way, Batmobile kind of defines this superhero without superpower. I have in my possession two LEGO UCS Batmobiles: the LEGO UCS Batmobile 7784 and the LEGO UCS Tumbler 76023. They are both as fabulous as they are iconic, and now, there is one “fictional” fan built (AKA LEGO MOC) that I think deserves to be in the same place as those two official sets. Continue reading This Custom LEGO Batmobile Deserves To Be A Real Batman Ride
LEGO elements alone can build pretty much anything. Combine that with LEGO Technic parts, it build wonders… wonders like the LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron you see here. Yes! This is the real deal. Not MOC or whatever. It is the official Bugatti Chiron set developed in partnership with the supercar maker. It is the latest in the LEGO Technic Supercar series following the much hyped LEGO Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS released two years ago. Continue reading LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron Is Official, Has Working 8-Speed Gearbox!
The mention of Sphero or Orbotix conjures up the image of remote control ball. But in actual fact, Sphero/Orbotix is more than that. It has non-ball remote control toys too, like the crazy awesome Ultimate Lightning McQueen and now, a R2-Q5 too. R2 what? Well, that’s Q5, the R2-like droid that shared much of the lovable R2-D2 look, except that it is in black. Continue reading The Dark Side’s R2-Q5 Is Now In Your Control With This App-enabled Droid
