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

Forget about scouring eBay for a 2008 LEGO 10189 Taj Mahal which could cost you thousands of dollars because, if you really want one, LEGO is re-releasing the set. Designated 10256, the rejuvenated (or rebooted, if you will) iconic mausoleum of India will be available starting November 1st. The catch? Well, there isn’t one, really, unless you consider the inevitable inflation is a catch. You see, back in 2008, the 10189 commanded $299.99, but this 10th anniversary version is going to run you back at a painful $369.99. Man, that’s a good 70 backs over the original!

Star Wars The Black Series Rey’s Speeder and Figure Is Now 30% Less On Amazon

Gone were the days where “toy-grade” action figures are basically shitty quality pieces that kids can trash them around however they like. With the Star Wars Black Series, “toy-grade” action figures are now on par with collectibles that cost hundreds of dollars. But of course, the Black Series is marketed at a tad higher price point. Despite so, they are still a lot more affordable compared to those “collectors-grade” items turned out by specialists like Hot Toys. It is now even more affordable, or at it is in the case of the Star Wars The Black Series Rey’s Speeder (Jakku) and Figure, because Amazon is taking over 30% of it. The Star Wars The Black Series Rey’s Speeder (Jakku) and Figure previously cost $59.99, but now, for an unknown period of time, it cost just $40.93.

So, you think transforming Transformers toys are cool?

Good News, Here’s A Mjölnir Everyone Can Lift, But The Size Might Be An Issue

It is said that only the worthy one will be able to lift the mythical Mjölnir, but with the Marvel Thor’s Hammer 4’ Oversized Foam Prop, you don’t need to be worthy or enchanted to wield it because, it has a real-world weight of mere 20 lbs (around 9 kilograms). Hell, even a kid could pull it along. No, wait. There is just one problem here. At 4 feet (1.2 meter) tall, it might be a little too big to be conveniently lug around and obviously, it won’t make you fly like Thor. On the bright side, Magneto won’t be able to snatch it from you because, it is crafted from Uru, the magical Asgardian metal. Nah. Just kidding. It is not made of Uru. It is of prop-favorite material: foam. Continue reading Good News, Here’s A Mjölnir Everyone Can Lift, But The Size Might Be An Issue

Oh Look, Playstation Now Has A Tiny PS4 Gamepad For Tiny Hands

Look at the Playstation DualShock4 controller. Are there anything wrong with it? With an ergonomic design, there are hardly anything wrong with it, but if you think the wireless freedom it offers and the size is a tad too big for your tiny hands, well then, Sony Playstation’s newly announced Sony Playstation Mini Wired Gamepad for PS4 will have you covered. Yes. It is supposed to be small, but to be honest, not by a lot (Sony said it is 40% smaller, btw). It looks kind of neat, I am not going to lie, but that’s if you can ignore the irritable cable sticking out of it. Continue reading Oh Look, Playstation Now Has A Tiny PS4 Gamepad For Tiny Hands

Headless Robotic Cat Is Just About The Weirdest Robots Have Gotten
