Well, it looks like Tez Gilmir is in the running for a nerdy Dad-of-the-year award. His son has a big thing for Lego, so Tez decided to make a portable workstation for him as a way to encourage him to keep pursuing his creative hobby.

The station unfolds and features a cabinet, bins, a little stool and a table where his son can play with his Lego. When everything’s packed away and the table and stool are folded back up, the station transforms into a giant Lego piece (you can see what it looks like after the break).

When we were kids, we loved to have superhero battles with action figures. Now you can bring that same superhero battle action to your chess board with these chess pieces and collector magazines from Eaglemoss Publications.

Each character is cast from a specially formulated metalized resin and painted by expert model makers. Plus, they include a 16-page magazine with comic artwork and chess tips.

With characters from both the Marvel and DC universes, you can cast some of your favorite characters as key pieces and battle.

Haha…look at the giant heads on these blind-boxed Power Rangers figures! Let’s hope they don’t run into a tribe of headhunters that know karate.

Each measures about 3″ tall and has 10 points of articulation. They also have removable helmets and a few accessories, so they’ve got a little more going for them than your typical blind-box figure (hence the $12.99 price tag). The first series features the 5 primary Rangers, White Ranger, Green Ranger, Rita Repulsa, Lord Zedd and Goldar.

Once again, Hot Toys has produced a figure that is so detailed that it might actually have a soul. Seriously, I wouldn’t be surprised if this 1/6th scale Captain America figure from The Avengers: Age Of Ultron came to life during a thunderstorm. From Hot Toys:

The movie-accurate Captain America Collectible Figure is specially crafted based on the image of Chris Evans as Captain America/Steve Rogers in Avengers: Age of Ultron, featuring a newly painted helmeted head sculpt, a newly painted Steve Rogers head sculpt, finely tailored Captain America suit, magnetic metal Captain America shield with retractable handles, and a specially designed figure stand.
