LEGO Unveiled More The LEGO Movie 2 Building Sets

The LEGO Movie 2: The Second Part will only hit theaters in February 8, 2019, but already, LEGO has unveiled new building sets based on the animated movie.

All told, a total of 19 sets are being released. They will be launched in “waves” with select sets available starting December 1, with other sets to follow on December 26, 2018.

LEGO Technic Porsche 911 RSR Looked Like The Terminator Of Porsche

Well, what do you know? LEGO has yet another Porsche since after the LEGO Technic 42056 Porsche 911 GT3 RS introduced two years ago, officially called LEGO Technic 42056 Porsche 911 RSR. Yes. It is still a 911, but this time round, it is based on the full-fledged race car – complete with the appropriate livery and one that is not brightly colored. Pretty cool, eh? Granted, the Terminator look may not for everyone. Unlike the 2016 model, the RSR looks more, how do you say? Robotic. It has less smooth lines is what I am trying to say.

Gurglin’ Gutz, The Grossest Toy From The 90s Is Back!

With the return of twisted, nonsensical cartoons like Adventure Time, We Bare Bears, Rick and Morty and the likes, it seems like a fitting time to bring back a twisted and gross toy from the 90s. We talking about the Gurglin’ Gutz, the squishy, stretchy, silicon globs of simulated eyeballs, brains and guts that made sucking slurp of gooey grossness when squeezed. It was a hit toy product that could be considered as one of the icons of the 90s. Continue reading Gurglin’ Gutz, The Grossest Toy From The 90s Is Back!

Pikachu Talk Skill For Alexa And New Pokémon Plushies Introduced

Since we are the topic of Pokémon, we thought you may like know a couple of new developments. The first is Pokémon Pikachu Talk Skill for Amazon Alexa and Google Home where you can “converse ‘live’” with Pikachu. Instead of the usual Alexa or Google Home voice, whatever you ask or commands your Amazon Alexa or Google Home device will be reciprocated with Pikachu classic lines like “Pika?”, “Pika, Pika!”, and “Pikaaaa.” I guess you could say Pikachu Talk Skill for Alexa and Google Home is the closest experience you will get to having an actual Pokémon creature.

Blade Inductrix Switch Is A RC Drone And Hovercraft Rolled Into One

Horizon Hobby has joined the elite group of ‘hybrid’ remote control toys with the new Blade Inductrix Switch. Now., you may ask: what is hybrid and how is it elite? Elite because, it is far and few between, and hybrid offers two modes, usually involving a flying drone mode and a land or sea mode. There are really not many such ‘hybrid’. Off the cuff, we can think are Parrot Minidrone Hydrofoil, the ceiling crawling Parrot Minidrone and the couple of from B.

Toilet Paper Blasters Skid Shot Is When TP Meets NERF Meets Water Gun

To a grown person, toilet paper is merely for wiping ass, but to kids and the mischievous minds, it is a good material for prank which leads us to the ‘science’ of what happens when water is thrown into the mix; it turns a piece of crumbled TP very throw-able. The Toilet Paper Blasters Skid Shot you see here takes that ‘science’ to the next level, by turning it into a toy gun. It is like your childhood being replayed out, but only this time, it is more sophisticated. Continue reading Toilet Paper Blasters Skid Shot Is When TP Meets NERF Meets Water Gun

LEGO Wind Turbine Set Has Plant Elements Made From Plants

LEGO is a major consumer of plastics and plastics are byproducts of crude oil and in some cases, natural gases. Whichever the source is, it is not quite as sustainable as, say, bamboo. Being a company that relies on plastics, LEGO desires to be more sustainable and it is starting with this collaborative set called LEGO 10268 Creator Expert Vestas Wind Turbine. And no, they are not going to use bamboo to replace plastic. It is going with plant-based plastic. Continue reading LEGO Wind Turbine Set Has Plant Elements Made From Plants

This Is LEGO Forma, LEGO’s Adult-centric Mechanical Toys

LEGO has decided that it wants to make toys for grown ups. Strange that the Danish toy maker has such a notion, but here it is, the LEGO Forma – a series of mechanical toys designed with adults in mind.
