NECA Brings Back 1995 Burning Godzilla Action Figure

If you missed the opportunity to acquire the NECA Classic 1995 Burning Godzilla Action Figure back in 2015, well, fret not because, NECA Toys has brought it back! This 12-inch long posable figure is now listed for sale on the company’s official Amazon and eBay stores. This is an re-issue though, so it may not be as, you know, as collectible as the original rolled out in 2015. But who cares when it looks exactly the same and it is as accurate as f*@k, right?

Solo: A Star Wars Story LEGO Kessel Run Millennium Falcon Available Now

The LEGO Star Wars Millennium Falcon is one of the much loved set in the LEGO Star Wars collection (especially the ridiculously pricey UCS edition), but if the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story (Walt Disney Pictures, 2018) does indeed make much of dent in the box office, then perhaps, the star space vehicle of the flick may have a place in the LEGO Star Wars cult altar too. Just maybe. Whatever the case maybe, you will want to secure yourself a set (or several, if you have extremely deep pockets) just in case this thing becomes as big as its forebear.

Hot Toys Unveiled Avengers: Infinity War Captain America 1/6th Scale Figure

When we went thru the list of Avengers: Infinity War collectibles unveiled by Hong Kong toy maker, Hot Toys, we noticed that the star of the show, Cap, was not present. Well, he wasn’t in the 1/6th scale collectible figures lineup anyways. As it turns out, Hot Toys may have saved the last for the best because, Cap was finally unveiled last week in an item refer to as Hot Toys Avengers: Infinity War Captain America (Movie Promo Edition) 1/6th Scale Collectible Figure. And man, it is sure a 1/6th scale that would make fans giggle with excitement. Continue reading Hot Toys Unveiled Avengers: Infinity War Captain America 1/6th Scale Figure

Rideable Electric TIE Fighter Is Every Star Wars Fans Dream Come True

Furze and Burton may have built a full-size Kylo Ren TIE Fighter which a grown-ass man can get in and pretend to fly it. Allan Carver’s TIE Fighter may not fly. It may not even of life-size (it is not small either though; it is about 1/3rd scale), but one thing for sure is, it is totally mobile and it can also fit a grown-ass man inside, albeit with not much room to so much as to wiggle. Built with reference to a vintage Kenner toy, Carver’s electric TIE fighter is driven by electric wheelchair motors and features a foam body over a custom steel chassis. Continue reading Rideable Electric TIE Fighter Is Every Star Wars Fans Dream Come True

LEGO “Rumba” Is Like Roomba For Sweeping LEGO Pieces

LEGO is fun, but the pieces can be pain to your feet if you leave them lying around as would any good LEGO builders. The pain can be so excruciating that you’d remember to clean up after any LEGO build, but for one very talented LEGO enthusiast, he (or was it a she???) decided that it is better leave it to LEGO to clean up its own shit. How? With this brilliant LEGO MOC called “LEGO Rumba.” If you think LEGO Rumba sounds like Roomba, the robotic vacuum cleaner that started it all, well, it kind of is. Except that it doesn’t look like one (it isn’t disc shape is what I mean) and it isn’t vacuum cleaner. It has only one purpose and that is to “sweep” up LEGO pieces.

Today’s Science Lesson: Can Saltwater Really Drives A Boat?

While scientists dream of making the world less polluted with electric propulsion, one dude in the 1950s dreamed of using seawater to power boats. His bold dream was featured on Mechanix Illustrated Aug. 1954 issue. Using saltwater and different metals to generate electricity is a theory that has been thrown around for a while now. Over the years, someone from somewhere had mooted the idea (which wasn’t original in the 1950s, btw), but we have yet to see a real life example after Ralph E. McCabe bold experiment. But thanks to YouTuber/Tinkerer Peter Sripol, you can see it for yourself if the theory holds any (salt)water. Sorry for the lousy pun. Continue reading Today’s Science Lesson: Can Saltwater Really Drives A Boat?

LEGO Ideas TRON Legacy Set Has Not One But Two Light Cycles

Well, you have heard the exciting news late last year and now, we have the official words and images of the LEGO Idea TRON Legacy Light Cycle Set, originally created by BrickBros UK as a LEGO Ideas submission. And boy, is this set a beauty! No noticeable changes have been made since we last saw the set. The only ‘major’ change we noted is the naming, in which the words “Light Cycle” seems to have been dropped in favor of just “TRON Legacy.” But despite so, rest assure that you are getting the iconic, futuristic bikes as dreamed up by BrickBros UK.

Crowdfunding Hasbro Jabba’s Sail Barge Gets A Paint Job And Some Extras

Remember the Hasbro Star Wars Vintage Collection Jabba’s Sail Barge introduced under Hasbro’s new crowdfunding-style initiative known as HasLab. Well, it looks like the community is not quite thrilled. So far, this 500 dollars collectible has gotten 3,500+ backers and it has just 10 days left to meet its targeted 5,000 backers to take it to production. However, it is deemed a good enough milestone for Hasbro to showcase this collectible in its painted form, or perhaps, the colors put on to an attempt to boost the allure.
