gundam star wars figures

Stormtroopers! Iconic. Gundam! Also iconic. What happens when you smash ’em together? Until this week, we had no idea. Fortunately, Korean Gundam enthusiast Kunho Noh has stepped in to answer this pressing question by modifying Star Wars figures with badass Gundam armor.

Check out additional pics and videos of his creations below.

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.

Get a load of this! A group of LEGO enthusiasts in Taiwan assembled this phenomenal recreation of the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier as seen in the Avengers films.

Measuring 140cm x 80cm and using approximately 15,000 bricks, it’s over twice the size and uses five times as many bricks as LEGO’s own officially-licensed Helicarrier set from 2015.

Formosa LEGO club members ZiO Chao and his friends Dada, Kimura, Kuan-Wei, Stephanie, Tiger and Will spent a month and a half putting this beast together, using only stills of the Helicarrier from 2012’s The Avengers as reference.

turret

You can tell how many startups a person has worked for by the size of their Nerf collection, and you can tell how seriously they take their Nerf by how many custom modifications they’ve made.

Well, RobotGeek have us all beat – they’ve made this automated Nerf sentry gun that can be programmed to fire when a specific color is detected. What’s more they’ve posted full instructions so you can build it yourself.

Unfortunately, the project won’t be cheap. You’ll need a Pixy CMUcam ($85), a foam dart gun kit ($40), and Robot Geek’s own Desktop RoboTurret ($100).

The major drawback is that it only holds the one Nerf dart, so you’ll have to reload manually after each shot. So make sure your target is the only one in the office wearing your pre-programmed color.

Here’s a video of the completed turret in action:

The artist known as BeeZeeArt has been making handmade galaxy bats since 2014, but she has been unable to keep up with the demand. The solution? Mass production! She’s launched a Kickstarter to produce these bats in bulk so that more people can get their mits on these adorable little creatures.

life size armored Batman 4

While most of us don’t have the kind of money to buy something like the new Hot Toys Life-Size Armored Batman collectible statue, there’s no denying that it’s a thing of beauty. The first in Hot Toys’ newly announced “Life-Size Masterpiece Series”, this new collectible takes the 1/6th Armored Batman and upscales it to full-size.

Hot Toys writes:

The movie-accurate and realistic life-size collectible will be available in selected markets and stands approximately 1.95m/6.4ft tall (2.2m/7.2ft tall with base). It features an armored head with light-up eyes, authentic and detailed likeness of Batman’s lower face, meticulously sculpted replica of the Batsuit and armor, a fabric cape, and a circular base with light-up function and movie logo.

There’s no price yet, but this sort of collectible isn’t really made for people who care about the price, is it?

Hot Toys has just revealed their Armored Batman 1/6th Scale figure for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Not surprisingly, it’s super accurate—right down to Ben Affleck’s stern face and 5 o’clock shadow.

The figure has a newly developed armored head with LED light-up eyes, two interchangeable lower faces capturing Ben Affleck’s facial expressions and weathered armor.

It also includes a grapple gun, a grenade gun (with grenades), and a specially designed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice-themed figure stand.

The figure will be shipping between Aug 2016 – Oct 2016 of this year and it’s currently available for pre-order at Sideshow Collectibles.

I’ve made sure to include all of the product details along with the pictures below for those of you who want to know everything there is to know about this badass figure.

17-year-old engineering prodigy Angelo Casimiro decided he wanted a BB-8 droid of his own, but the $140 Sphero version just wasn’t good enough. Instead, he invested $120 and made his own full-scale, functional example using an iPhone, a paper mache-soaked beach ball, and a domed styrofoam head fixed in place with a set of speaker magnets.

For the brains of the operation, Casimiro used an Arduino Uno microcontroller board which, in conjunction with other boards, controls a set of wheels inside the body to move the droid around.

The final product looks amazing. Check out the instructional video below to learn more about how to build one yourself.
