Following the world’s largest NERF gun, YouTuber/tinkerer Mark Rober has created the world’s largest Super Soaker and it actually works! Hmmm, I wonder what the anti-riot department’s thought? Ok, maybe not; it will hurt them rather than suppress them. Not a good idea, obviously. Apparently, it is Guinness World Record holder for the largest Super Soaker, coming in at a cool 7 feet long. Like Mark’s previous creation, he strive to be as authentic as possible in terms of look and authenticity, and the result is a Super Soaker that looks like it got hit by the enlargement ray gun and of course, shoots water.

Seriously, who doesn’t love G.I. Joe? (the action figures and the cartoon series, not quite the movies) Everybody loves the Joes, but how strong is your love? Will it be strong enough for you to drop $200 and $230 for a specially created G.I. Joe L-2B Flight Jacket and a G.I. Joe Duke collectible garbed in a miniature replica of the jacket? 200 bucks is not a lot for a quality outerwear and especially one that’s inspired by the classic L-2B Alpha made for the military. Continue reading G.I. Joe Figure With Matching Jacket Is More Expensive Than The Actual Jacket
threezero has unveiled the first look of the pre-production 1/6 Scale ULTRAMAN Suit. For those who have not been keeping abreast with ULTRAMAN, which is more famously remembered as the rubber-suited, giant kaiju’s ass kicker, the ULTRAMAN Suit is straight from the manga series introduced in 2011 as a sequel to the 1966 ULTRAMAN TV series. So, yeah. It looks suspiciously like an Iron Man suit and so, we are not surprised where Tomohiro Shimoguchi drew his inspiration from when penning this modern interpretation of the iconic red and silver kaiju-killer. Continue reading threezero 1/6 Scale ULTRAMAN Suit: NOT Japanese’s Iron Man.
Over the weekend, Marvel’s Jesse Falcon made an announcement that should have Marvel/Black Panther fans very excited. Falcon revealed the Marvel Legends 12-inch Black Panther Action Figure at the D23 Expo. Now, the thing is, this action figure is from toy maker Hasbro and so, one should not expect a boat load of details like you would get from collectibles from Hot Toys and the likes. Despite that being the case, the first images seem to point to quite a reasonable amount of details. Based on the upcoming Black Panther solo movie starring Chadwick Boseman as the T’ChallaBlack Panther, the toy version the king and protector of Wakanda is showed garbed in his vibranium-weave suit complete with the menacing retractable claws, locked and loaded. Continue reading Hasbro Unveiled 12-inch Marvel Legends Series Black Panther Figure
Yes. It is Glock 19, complete with functional magazine, and it totally shoots. Perhaps most importantly, it is made mostly out of cardboard. You may have already heard of it, but for some of us here, it was a revelation. A realization that materials as simple as cardboard, papers, rubber bands, could replicate a real working pistol. Just imagine if you work it with a 3D printer with more solid materials like ABS, or even metals. Man, you could easily made a gun right in your home. Of course, the process is not as simple. Personally, I thought of crafting one myself, using cardboard, of course, but looking through the 15 minutes plus video, it sure looks like it takes some sort of talent to put together one. Patience is prerequisite too, if I may add. Continue reading Guy Made A Pretty Damn Powerful Glock 19 Out Of Cardboard
With a little ingenuity, pretty much anything can be turned into a weapon. Even cardboards – as proven by the incredibly talented YouTuber, The Q. The Q here is not quite the Q from Bond movies, but I am pretty sure if this dude is given the resources Q had in the movies, he will probably be as brilliant as the fictional Q, if not more brilliant. I am serious. Just take a look his portfolio. Tell me you aren’t a wee bit impressed. Many of The Q’s projects are crazy awesome, but this one here is the best in proving that cardboard can be dangerous too. Continue reading How To Make A Functional Commando’s M202 FLASH-like Rocket Launcher
The LEGO NASA Apollo Saturn V (21309) with 1,969 pieces was the biggest LEGO Ideas set when it was first made official, but not for long because, as it turns out, another LEGO Ideas has since snatched the title from it.

Continue reading With Over 2,000 Pieces, The Old Fishing Store Is The Biggest LEGO Ideas Set
If there’s one genre that has not received as much love from LEGO, it would be steampunk. Ok. I know steampunk is totally fictional, but so are many other LEGO sets, and therefore, it is not entirely audacious to think the Custom LEGO Steampunk Battleship by A.Graham LEGO Design, submitted to LEGO Ideas, deserves some serious love. There’s something about high-tech setup in an era that weren’t suppose to that tickles our imaginations and the allure of steam-powered technology that powers familiar, everyday machines is beyond words can describe. Continue reading Custom LEGO Steampunk Battleship Really Should Be An Official LEGO Set!
I never understand the fidget spinner hype. Perhaps, I am a little too old? Or maybe, my digits do not find the need to, you know, fidget? That’s not to say I am a non-fidget saint. When I was younger I did fidget, but back in those days, we never had novelties like fidget spinners. We twirl our pens instead and I am not going to lie, during my entire student life, I always find myself twirling a writing instrument. In fact, I was getting pretty good at it to a point that I started “studying” the balance of each pen or pencil to determine which make/model was the best to satisfy my need to fidget. I only fall short of modifying the writing instrument to meet my restless digits’ needs. Continue reading A Custom Fidget Spinner That Makes Mario Runs Is As Cool As It Sounds
Fans of Iron Man and comics legend Stan Lee may want to check this vinyl figure set out. Coming from Hong Kong-based Fools Paradise, I Won’t Be A Robot, Lee Vinyl Figure Set, as it is called, features a Fools signature caricature-style character Lowfool in ‘Tony Stark’ guise in a half Iron Man suit, accompanied by the father of superheroes, Stan Lee. In this vinyl figure set, Lee appeared to be cheery as always, holding a cooked full chicken while Lowfool Stark/Iron Man aims at the chicken food with his repulsor, presumably cooking it.
