3DLightFX is adding to their range of 3D wall lights with a Millennium Falcon model that bursts into your room with flames in its wake. All you need are a few batteries to keep the LEDs glowing.

It’s as badass as night lights can get.

Towering above most other action figures stands this mighty 12″ Cthulhu, ready to destroy all earthy creatures in its path. The Great Old One from Warpo is completely posable and ready for soul consumption.

Warpo has also created two retro style commercials to highlight toy Cthulhu’s awesome action capabilities. Check them out after the break.

If you’re stoked on Metal Gear Solid V, then you’ll probably dig this new Venom Snake figure from Union Creative. It features 27 points of articulation and comes with a whole mess of cool accessories including a knife, a phantom cigar (always a must!), a sniper rifle, a papercraft box (for sneaking) and six optional hands. The $65 price tag is a bit steep ($95 will get you the figure before January apparently), but hey—six hands!

art of war chess

Designers Craig Turley and George Barnes of Studioqubed have combined both modern and old techniques to create the Throne of Kings: The Art of War chess set. They start by digitally sculpting each chess piece and then 3D printing them. Master molds are created from those sculptures and then cast in bronze using the ancient process of lost-wax casting.

In addition, the board itself is hand crafted using walnut and birdseye maple and comes in two sizes: 18″ square standard and 11″ square travel size.

It’s the kind of thing a medieval fantasy fan will be able to enjoy for a lifetime.

I don’t know if I missed this during the Force Friday insanity or if this Amazon exclusive Star Wars: The Force Awakens 3.75-Inch Figure Troop Builder 6-Pack just popped up recently, but the second I saw it, I did a happy dance.

The seven figure set includes Captain Phasma, First Order Stormtrooper, First Order Flametrooper, First Order Snowtrooper, First Order TIE Fighter Pilot, First Order Riot Control Stormtrooper, and First Order Heavy Artillery Stormtrooper plus 14 accessories to arm them all. The packaging is also very cool.

Someone somewhere is going to buy a bunch of these and stage a battle. I just hope they share pictures.

Get a closer look at this set after the break.

zombie flamingos

Turns out that the zombie apocalypse we all feared didn’t start with humans. The flamingos have turned!

If you live in Florida or have a weird, tacky neighbor you had better get your bug out bag and start running.
