Well, it has been made official, along with images and videos of it. Yes, indeed the LEGO version of James Bond’s iconic ride, the Aston Martin DB5, is now official.

Usually, fictional characters get to be immortalized as action figures, but today, Oscar-winning filmmaker Guillermo del Toro is getting his very own. Guillermo del Toro may not have directed a lot movies compared to other A-list directors, but each and every film he produced, directed and/or wrote was not only a hit, but has attained somewhat of a cult status. My most fond memories were no doubt 1993’s Cronos and Pan’s Labyrinth from 2006. Continue reading NECA Honors Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro With His Very Own Action Figure
I am sure everyone here is familiar with the green army men – especially those who grew up in the 80s. If not, Pixar’s Toy Story should ring a bell because they were in the franchise too. Green army men are hardly action figures. They were tiny, not posable and often crudely made with rough lines that lacked details, but because they are now considered icons of the toys of the past, it kind of feel endearing to see them again – even if they are doing yoga poses and not in their usual combat poses. So, yeah, the Yoga Joes Green Army Men Toy are a thing. Continue reading Oh, Look, Green Army Men Toys Ditched Weapons In Favor Of Yoga!
The recently announced Fallout: 76 won’t be available till Fall, but already, news of its merchandise has already emerging, including our apple of our eyes: the Pip-Boy 2000 Mk Vi kit and now, we heard our all-time favorite geek store has a bunch of other Fallout stuff. Whether or not they are directly related to the upcoming Fallout: 76 does not matter. What matters is, these merchandise from this referential video game franchise are super dope. They are part futurism and steampunk, but all retro-futuristic and that tickles my fancy, a lot. Continue reading Here Are Some Fallout Collectibles No Fans Should Live Without
There’s something strangely alluring about referential things. Perhaps, that is why Fallout has a such a huge following. I am not fan of the game, btw. I hate any game that requires me to face mutants, monsters et cetera. But I am fan of the art of Fallout. There’s nothing more referential then this now-iconic game. Late last month, Bethesda revealed a teaser to a new Fallout game, called Fallout: 76. A couple of weeks later on June 10, the U.S. game publisher made the official reveal. Continue reading Fallout: 76 Revealed, Special Edition And Pip-Boy 2000 Mk VI Collectible
I have no idea why anyone needs an ejection seat, but in case you are in the market for one, here’s one Boeing is selling. Boeing said this particular seat was ripped from a F-4 Phantom. Yup. The Phantom. It was a Mk. 7 rocket-assisted ejection seat built by British manufacturer Martin-Baker Aircraft Co. Ltd. So, it is the real-deal. Your days of pretending to be on a fighter jet is over. No, actually not really. But at least it is real ejection seat, not your self-assembled IKEA variety. Continue reading Here’s An Ejection Seat You Can Buy… If You Have $20K To Spare
LEGO elements alone can build pretty much anything. Combine that with LEGO Technic parts, it build wonders… wonders like the LEGO Technic Bugatti Chiron you see here. Yes! This is the real deal. Not MOC or whatever. It is the official Bugatti Chiron set developed in partnership with the supercar maker. It is the latest in the LEGO Technic Supercar series following the much hyped LEGO Technic Porsche 911 GT3 RS released two years ago.

Despite the proliferation of smartwatches, the fictional tech from 70-ish years ago has never been realized. Yes. We are talking about the world’s most famous Dick’s two-way radio communication watch. OK. It is not actually the first “Official Dick Tracy Watch.” This is in fact the second iteration. Back in 2016, two brothers, armed with exclusive worldwide rights, had created one, but back then, the watch just look like Dick Tracy’s timepiece. Continue reading Holy Molly! There Is Going To Be An Official, Functional Dick Tracy Watch!
