Artist Turns Regular Dolls Into Mind-blowing Hyperrealistic Figures

You know is it with stock action figures and dolls. They hardly resembles the person they took after. I don’t want to question why manufacturers of these expensive collectibles can’t get the facial features right. But hey, that’s probably a good thing because it leaves a void for exceedingly talented repaint artist like Philippine-born, US-based Noel Cruz a chance to unleash his talents and thus doing justice to the celebrities who the action figures/dolls took the image. How else would you turn ugly Emma Watson doll from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast into like what she supposed to be right? The works of Noel Cruz need no advertisement. The results speak for themselves. Continue reading Artist Turns Regular Dolls Into Mind-blowing Hyperrealistic Figures

This 200K+ LEGO Bricks Re-creation Of Battle Of Hoth Totally Blew My Mind

How much are you a fan of Star Wars? The original trilogy, not the newer episodes. You know what. Don’t answer that because, most likely you won’t be as huge as a fan than Ben, Ferroh12 and Brick_Phil. How so?

More famously known for creating an accurate Iron Man suit James Bruton AKA XRobots has, by the request of his daytime job’s boss at Bladez Toyz, create something that‘s rather intriguing.

Kill Kat Vinyl Figure Is Probably The Most Evil Kit Kat Of All

Evil exists in many forms. Some are obvious, but some like junk food are not immediately apparent. The Kill Kat Vinyl Figure you see here makes it obvious. If the name Kill Kat is not being apparent enough, then the six inches tall conjoined candy evil twin faces should. Oh, those are too cute? What about the in-your-face pentagram printed on the Kit Kat-like wrapper? Is that obvious enough? No? What about its expiry date of 6/6/6, or perhaps 666 calories per serving it has, and the fact that is the number of the beast? Still no? Seriously, what are you??? Continue reading Kill Kat Vinyl Figure Is Probably The Most Evil Kit Kat Of All

R/C Podracers Are Real, Can Someone Make Life-size Versions Already?

During the recent Model-Hobby-Spiel Fair in Leipzig, Germany, something caught our attention and it wasn’t the regular R/C models. Instead, it was a bunch of futuristic racers, or The Phantom Menace‘s Podracers to be precise. Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace may have failed us, but the image of Anakin Skywalker’s Podrace had many enthralled. It was possibly the best scenes in the entire show. It had all the elements many geeks love: adrenalin pumping racing, futuristic flying racers, and shrewd aliens. Lets not forget about that. All thanks to today’s advancement in micro motors, Podracers are now a reality. Or at least, it is as far as R/C is concerned.

LEGO Is Bringing Back The Taj Mahal To Mark The Set’s 10th Anniversary
