legoninjagoset

LEGO’s ninja-themed Ninjago line will soon include a set featuring the Temple of Airjitzu, the blacksmith’s workshop, and the Smugglers’ Market which are connected with a bridge featuring two stone dragons on either side.

This incredibly detailed city showcases traditional pagoda-style buildings, sliding doors, and even a ninja training room with weapons holders. But the highlight to this entire set has to be the real working shadow theater. It comes with its own light brick and spine dial which promises to look awesome in the dark.

The Temple of Airjitzu Ninjago Lego set has over 2,000 pieces including 12 minifigures of Ninjago characters Lloyd, Kai, Jay, Zane, Cole, Nya, Wu, Misako, Dareth, Postman, Jesper and Claire, along with their assorted weapons. Hitting stores in September, this badass set should set you back about $200.

Check out more images, including the shadow theater, after the break.

risk-game-of-thrones

We broke the news about the Risk: Game of Thrones edition back in Marh, but now we finally have images of the board and playing pieces. HBO joined forces with Hasbro and USAopoly to create this special edition game based on the TV show.

“RISK: Game of Thrones’ Edition Game escalates ‘Risk’, the classic game of strategic conquest, to an epic level of chaos and war in a battle for the Iron Throne. Featuring striking game packaging, two custom-designed game boards, three ways to play, seven finely sculpted armies, and more than 650 total pieces, this game of strategic conquest will test the wits and bravery of both Risk and Game of Thrones fans.

humh_star_trek_paperclips

While we live in a digital world, there are times we still need to use paper. For those times, why would you use a boring paper clip when you could use these Star Trek paper clips shaped like The Enterprise and a Starfleet Insignia?

These Star Trek themed clips come in a cool little tin and you get 20 silver-colored NCC-1701 clips and 20 gold-colored Delta Shield clips.

Okay, considering they’re more limited than usual paper clips, maybe just use them on official Starfleet TPS reports.
