“Weird Al” Yankovic has been a Simpsons figure and a bobblehead, but never an action figure—until now. NECA has announced a new 8-inch “Weird Al” Yankovic figure that’ll include two different head sculpts, a microphone, and his signature accordion. Fron NECA:

We are thrilled to induct the legendary icon “Weird Al” Yankovic into our retro clothed action figure line – and this is only the beginning! More versions of Al will be coming later in 2016 and 2017 based on some of the musician’s most iconic song parodies.

Our first Al figure is dressed in tailored fabric clothing, similar to the toys that helped define the action figure market in the 1970s. The figure stands 8” tall and comes with two interchangeable heads, so you can switch between Al’s classic look from the 1980s and his modern appearance. Includes microphone and accordion accessories and comes in collector-friendly window box packaging.

The figure is estimated to be released in May, but pre-orders should go live soon. Check out the full figure below.

These kitties are giving Mario a run for his money. Etsy seller CatastrophiCreations has updated their original Mario Warp Pipe Cat Complex with version 2.0 and added a full Mario-themed wall set option.

It looks awesome, but I gotta say—where are the power ups? What, no fiery catnip?

We got our first look at the Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice Barbie Wonder Woman last July, and now the entire series is available for order.

In addition to Wonder Woman, Mattel is also releasing…uh…SuperKen and BatKen?

You can get a case of three or buy each doll separately. I’m thinking the Wonder Woman is going to sell out pretty fast.

How popular are the new (unofficial) Disneyland-themed candles by Anthology Candles? Well, the response has been so overwhelming that their site is down for maintenance and their Etsy store is nothing but rolling tumbleweeds.

Considering the scent profiles, I can see why.

Soarin’ (which is based on Soarin’ Over California) is described as Redwood Trees, Cedar Trees, Salty Ocean Mist, Orange Blossoms.

The Haunted Mansion candle boasts the scents of Musty Carpets, Dusty Furnishings, Graveyard Grasses and Flowers (very subtle jasmine florals).

They also made foodie candles inspired by Disney’s delicious churros, Dole Whip and the Main Street Bakery (Hazelnut coffee and sugar cookies).

Made from US-grown soybeans, the candles are $16 a piece or come in a $45 3-pack. As to when they’ll be available for order, Anthology says they’ll be reopening “3/1/16 – if not sooner” and they’re currently working on shipping out the orders people have already made.

I want them all. Check out more pics below.

Look at this thing. Look at it! Isn’t it amazing? And adorable? This full-size aluminum BB-8 LED floor lamp has three light modes – “cold white, amber and warm white” – and stands 28 1/2 inches tall.

I need about a dozen of them, and so you do. Then again, it’s a tad on the pricey side for home illumination, but it might be worth it to take home the droid who helped track down Luke Skywalker.
