Untitled-5

In last year’s season of Doctor Who, viewers saw the end of the Doctor’s Sonic Screwdriver, replaced as it was for a few episodes by Sonic Sunglasses (presumably borrowed from some kind of Sonic Blues Brother). But the season finale saw the return of the Doctor’s most faithful companion in a revitalized (dare we say regenerated) form. The Doctor even got to put it to use, albeit briefly, during the 2015 Christmas special “The Husbands of River Song”.

Now, just five short months later, you can finally own the Doctor’s new Sonic Screwdriver for yourself.

Hot Toys recently unveiled their 1/6th scale Ellen Ripley Alien figure.

Awesome.

It comes with a bunch of accessories, including Jones the cat and his carrier box.

Double awesome. That may be the best figure accessory ever.

Charmed-Playhouses-5-800x500

Alberta, Canada-based Charmed Playhouses Inc. specializes in crafting dream treehouses and playhouses for children. Owner Tyson Leavitt and his team of designers work with the client to design the initial plans for the structure–they do everything from fairy tale towers to quaint cabins and more.

As you can see, the structures are enormously creative, and I love how they blend modern playground equipment like swings and slides with old-world design aesthetics.

Oh, and they do dog houses too!

star wars lava lamp

“I love lamp.”

“I know.”

What’s inside your average lava lamp? Lava, is it? Pfft. Boring. Anyone can have a lava lamp like that. How about a Star Wars lava lamp filled with X-Wings and TIE Fighters battling it out instead?

Check out the lamp in action below.

mario box light

Yes, this Mario Question Box Light exists. It’s officially licensed. You can even purchase it. Plus…PLUS it emits a classic 8-bit “PING” sound when you tippity tap it.

I’m sold, even though gold coins don’t pop out of it. Personally, I think that missing feature is a major oversight.

impopsters

Not content with taking all of your money with their regular Pop! line, Funko has just introduced “Impopsters” which features your favorite characters pretending to be some of your other favorite characters.

The first release has Batman and Batgirl dressed up as Harley Quinn, The Penguin, Scarecrow, The Riddler, and Two-Face.

Admit it. They’re cute.

Funko Impopsters Figures ($9.99)

If you have a fireplace, you need this fleece/felt Calcifer plush for your uh…stationary castle. Unless you have some sort of electric fireplace in an RV, which would be really perfect.

star wars tfa pops

While I may be on Funko Pop! probation (let’s just say I may have gone a bit over budget recently), you can bury yourself in new Star Wars Pops because there’s a lot to choose from.

Lots of new TFA stuff, and a few classics—even TR-8R. Basically, there’s a lot of cute for everyone.

Check out all of the new releases below. May the Pop be with you.

Are you a fan of keepsake boxes and treasure chests? I am. There’s something about a well-crafted chest/keepsake box (especially when it’s themed or has a surprise inside) that makes me happy. That’s why I love this musical Legend of Zelda: Ocarina Of Time chest from AFKforCosplay.

This handmade chest is made from stained cedar, which is lightweight and rot/bug resistant. It measures 12″ x 10″ x 9″ and the music is light activated. There’s even a version that’s perfect for proposals.

See it in action in the video below.

Play-Arts-Kai-Nightwing

The newest Batman: Arkham Knight Play Arts Kai figure has just debuted.

It’s Nightwing’s turn.

Armed with his acrobatic abilities, Nightwing fights against formidable villains. The Batman Arkham Knight Nightwing Play Arts Kai Action Figure features a meticulous attention to the fine details of his armored suit to render his nimble yet strong physique. The paintwork places heavy emphasis on the texture of each material, from the complexities of the various fabrics to the life-like skin tone. Nightwing comes equipped with his gadgets, including his Escrima Sticks, which can be stowed away on his back using an adapter piece. This figure also has a very wide range of mobility in order to recreate Nightwing’s flashier action poses. The metallic, almost iridescent accent colors in his chest and shoulders shimmer brightly, as if to show off his distinctive identity. The Batman Arkham Knight Nightwing Play Arts Kai Action Figure measures approximately 10 1/2-inches tall x 4 1/8-inches wide x 2 1/3-inches long, includes display stand and is packaged in a window box.
