What you see here is a RC Batmobile from toy maker Mattel. So what’s with this RC toy that gets us so stoked? Well, first and foremost, it is an exact replica of the Batmobile that will appear in the upcoming DC Comics’ Justice League movie. As you can see, Bruce’s crimefighting automobile gets some serious boost in firepower with an over the top look for good measure. Hey, we are not complaining cos’ it’s Batfleck. But being a replica of the movie’s car is just half of the story. The other half being, it has a real exhaust that, you know, spews out white smoke (harmless smoke, Mattel assures) and a dashcam of sort so you can drive this badass ride with your smartphone as what Batman would sees.

If there’s one thing about the good’ol Transformers, i.e. the 80s cartoon variety, which boggles my mind is how the heck the huge-ass Decepticon, the equivalent of Autobot’s Metroplex, Trypticon, is not a human-like robot but a dinosaur (specifically, a T-rex)? This question lingered in my mind for quite sometime and gradually took a backseat until recent when we heard Hasbro has announced a new version of the good’ol classic Trypticon and man, does it look awesome. I’d be lying if I say I weren’t stoked. Targeted to be released this Fall, this $149.99 Decepticon monstrosity is not nearly as enormous as the Metroplex (that thing stands 2 feet tall!), coming in at 20 inches tall and 9 inches wide in Dino mode, and 36 inches across, 30 inches long, and 16 inches tall as a city. Continue reading New Hasbro Transformers Decepticon City Action Figure Is 20 Inches Huge!
You probably already saw (or even bought) movie tie-in LEGO sets from The LEGO Batman Movie and you are probably wondering where the hell is the protagonist’s Ultimate Batmobile… well, the answer is, it is coming soon! So I guess it is a ‘yay!’? Maybe? Anyways, according to Market Watch, The Ultimate Batmobile Set is due to hit the shelves this June 1, priced at $129.99. As you can see in the images, the set features the caped crime fighter’s automobile that looks more like a mad scientist’s contraption – complete with oddly colored yellow-tinted cockpit canopies. Continue reading The Ultimate Batmobile Set’s Batmobile Is A Strange-looking 4-in-1 Vehicle
By now, we should be accustomed to NERF’s relentless pursuit to outdo itself. That said, it is no surprise that a 100-foam ball blaster and foam car-shooting blaster aren’t enough, cos’ the Hasbro brand is churning out more delightful blasters which the company will showcase at the upcoming New York Toy Fair, happening from February 18-21. One of the three notable blasters that will be unveiled is a jaw-dropping, monstrous (and somewhat anime-ish) blaster called The Judge. We are not sure if it is the judge, but with the fire power it has, it sure is an executioner. Continue reading NERF’s New Blasters Include An Anime-ish, Monstrous 30-Foam Dart Shooter
You know the key to winning a NERF battle? Firepower. But shit load of firepower won’t be enough – you need a blaster that has unlimited ammunition, like, you know, one that fires forever. Of course, we all know that’s a fantasy, a Hollywood kind of thing, or a possibility only if you enter cheat code in a game. So for now, as far as real flesh-and-blood foam ammunition battle is concern, the NERF Rival Nemesis MXVII-10k Foam Ball Blaster you see here is as close as you can get in getting an upper hand in a NERF shoot out. Continue reading NERF Rival Nemesis MXVII-10k Made Unlimited Firing A Possibility
I am sure we are all quite familiar what NERF has to offer. This Hasbro’s line of blasters shoots foam darts, isn’t it? Well, about that, it is not quite true anymore because NERF’s diversification has lead to it shooting, wait for it… foam cars. Yes. Yes. NERF’s new line of blasters that is slated to hit the shelves worldwide in summer 2017 doesn’t shoot foam darts or balls. Instead it will spit out foam cars and thereby pulling a Hot Wheels kind of toy line but without the fancy, roller coast-style tracks. Hard to imagine? Well, it is really not hard to imagine. Just think of it as a Hot Wheels launch-able car, less the track and has the launcher in the likeness of a NERF foam blaster. Get it? Continue reading Hasbro Takes On Hot Wheels With Foam Car-shooting NERF Nitro Blasters
Yes. Yes. I know. The Jurassic World hype is over, but that does not mean we can’t talk about the over-the-top, genetically-engineered, fictional star dinosaur, Indominus Rex, especially when there’s a robotic version which money can buy. Meet the Zoomer Dino Jurassic World Indominus Rex Robot, a remote control toy robot that allows you to control this ferocious dinosaur as opposed to merely displaying it. So, great, it moves, but unfortunately, this biped creatures can’t stomp around your parquet flooring like the fake real-deal. Instead it rolls on wheels. Continue reading Finally, Indominus Rex From Jurassic World Can Be Yours To Control
What you see here is the LEGO Boost 17101 Robotics System, a newly introduced learning toy set from the Danish toy maker that sits between the simplicity of regular LEGO and LEGO Technics sets, and the complexity offered by LEGO Mindstorm kits. Targeted at pre-teens, LEGO Boost lets kids put together a range of interactive toys, such a robot you see pictured above, using a mix of 3 sensing bricks called Boost bricks and aplenty of other LEGO elements (843 pieces, to be exact). Like Mindstorms, the fun and learning does not end when the construction is complete. Continue reading LEGO Boost Is Like The Mindstorms Kit For Pre-teen Kids
We can’t recall if James Cameron’s sci-fi fantasy Avatar did feature any baby Na’vi and not sure if the sequel will have any. In any case if you are curious what the sentient alien humanoids’ tiny ones will look like, well, Spanish hyperrealistic baby doll maker Babyclon is here to satisfy your curious mind. Meet the Life-like Avatar Silicone Babies. At €1,950 a pop (around US$2,040), these baby Na’vi are as real as they can gets, boasting insanely realistic, if not creepy, features and it is totally poseable and not to mention, soft to touch (which add to their creepiness). Continue reading Life-like Silicone Avatar’s Na’vi Babies: Creepy, Cute, Or Both?
Plush toys of animals are often cute and cuddly. Beyond that, they are just, well, plush toys. There’s really nothing much to explore beyond what it has on the outside, but that’s not case with Morris. Morris, named after the deceased gold fishes of creator and multidisciplinary artist Rachel Ciavarella, is a fish plush toy with a twist, like almost literally. Morris can be turned inside out, exposing its innards in all its glory (if you can even described that as ‘glory’). Continue reading Meet Morris, A Fish Plush Toy That You Can Turn Inside Out To See Its Innards
