This beautiful Darth Vader figure is the first in a new line by Japanese company Revoltech. He measures 6.7″ tall and has 23 different points of articulation. His cape is particularly interesting since it’s not fabric and has its own joints so you can pose it along with Vader’s movement. He comes with a stand, an on and off version of his lightsaber, and 4 different hands. Preorder now for delivery in December.

pink-landspeeder

Luke’s X-34 landspeeder looked pretty cool, but do you know what it lacked?

Color. That bucket of bolts looked pretty flippin’ dull. So Tyler Sky decided to make a more colorful LEGO version of the X-34. He also decided to really ratchet up the cuteness factor by adding in a few space puppies.

Yes. Space puppies. You won me over, Tyler!

funko pop 1

Don’t tell anyone, but I’m pretty sure Funko is trying to make enough POP! figures to replace all the humans on the planet. I’m not complaining because have you seen how adorable they are? The latest franchise to transform into bobbleheads is E.T.

Characters from the 1982 film look right at home as the chibi-style vinyl figures. E.T., Elliot, and Gertie are available for pre-order and will ship later this month.

See Elliot and Gertie after the break.

This Lego diorama of one of the most pivotal scenes in Ferris Bueller’s Day Off was created for Swedish LUG Swebrick‘s annual build contest. This year, the challenge was to build a scene from an ’80s movie that featured a vehicle. Etzel87 won first place for recreating the moment that Cameron completely snaps and launches his Dad’s Ferrari out the window.

Super Nerdy ABC Blocks

nerdy abc blocks

It’s never too early to start teaching kids about science, and this set of alphabet blocks is a fantastic start. Designed by Tiffany Ard, the Super Nerdy ABC Blocks feature a letter from the alphabet on one side and illustrated terms from science that go with that letter on the other five sides. For example, “A” is for absolute zero, atom, and more, and “B” is for binary, background radiation, and more. You can view a PDF key that shows all the sides for each letter here.

In this clip, reporters in Japan ask an animatronic Rocket Raccoon a few questions. While I don’t speak Japanese, I believe that the Rocket robot is very annoyed with the reporters’ bothersome questions, and he threatens them. Hilarity ensues.

Pate-keetongu is quite a Tolkien aficionado: he spent nearly two years completely recreating Bilbo Baggins and his compatriots using only LEGO. These custom minifigs are truly one of a kind: after the break, make sure to check out all of the extra details that he added to each characters. It’s pretty astounding stuff!

This fantastic Lego creation is the work of markus19840420. He’s turned the Millennium Falcon into a steampunk wonder. It was all a part of FBTB’s Steam Wars Returns contest. The exterior looks great with plenty of chains and little spinning rotors and it even has an inside to match. Wonder if it could take out this steampunk AT-AT?

funko aa 2

The Arkham Asylum game isn’t known for featuring cutesy character designs, but Funko has a knack for changing that. One of their newest Pop! series features Batman, Harley Quinn, the Joker, Killer Croc, and Poison Ivy, and they all look precious. I’d love to see a version of the game with these designs.

Pre-order the figures now for November shipment.

Check out the rest of the series after the break.
