The madman behind this incredible LEGO TARDIS interior is Thorsten Bonsch. To commemorate Doctor Who’s 50th anniversary, he built a replica of the TARDIS interior as it existed for most of the 11th Doctor’s run.

The project was so ambitious it took him nearly 3 years to complete. And none of the LEGO pieces have been modified, save for parts that are “officially” meant to be cut—like hoses and strings.

The level of detail is just incredible. You can check out more jaw dropping views after the break.

mini-felt-pokemon

Guys! These may be the softest, most cuddly Pikachu ever, and they need a good home. Etsy shop xxNostalgic sculpts each needled felted Pokemon by hand and then affixes little glass eyes to basically melt your heart. The figures stand at 2.25 inches tall which is just big enough for a handful of a hug.

But Pikachu isn’t the only petite figure ready for adoption. Check out more of the sweetest Pokemon mini friends after the break.

black series

The newest wave of Star Wars Black Series action figures is out and they look great. This set includes Commander Cody, IG-88, and Leia in her Boushh disguise (she looks like a totaly BAMF). The detail on all of them is pretty awesome.

If you missed it, Wave 8 looks pretty great as well. Stormtrooper Han and Luke, Emperor Palpatine, and a Clone Captain make up that case.

Wave 8 is estimated to arrive in April, Wave 9 is expected in June.

Entertainment Earth has both waves, plus past Black Series figures in cases and broken into single figures available to order or pre-order now.

Hot Toys has unveiled the newest edition to its Age of Ultron line, and as you can tell from the above pic, the Hulk appears to be very, very angry. In fact, he is so angry that he actually comes with two heads: one that’s mid-shout (above) and one that’s gritting its teeth in pure fury. The figure is also pretty tall, standing at an imposing 17 inches.

There are two versions of the figure: the standard version and the deluxe version, with the latter featuring “two newly developed angry and screaming Hulk head sculpts with rolling eyeballs, a specially painted muscular body and a newly sculpted interchangeable Hulk smash pose upper body.”

Check out some more pics after the break (including a special teaser image)…

Godzilla Spitfire 1

This new Godzilla Spitfire Edition SH MonsterArts Figure is pretty badass.

It comes with an insane stream of blue fire that has its own stand for one thing. The figure is also fully articulated and even comes with Muto’s head in case you want to have Godzilla carry it around.

The pictures are pretty amazeballs. You can see them after the break.

star-wars-encyclopedia

DK Publishing just announced that their newest version of the reference book, LEGO Star Wars Character Encyclopedia: Updated and Expanded, will actually include a Proto Fett LEGO minifig (based on the white prototype Boba Fett costume that appeared in some early test footage for The Empire Strikes Back).

The updated edition has 72 new pages of Star Wars LEGO minifigs that includes facts about which ones are the rarest and which can be found in the most LEGO sets. And best of all, the Proto Fett is exclusive to the book, which is set to release in April.

Check out more pics after the jump.

superhero toys 4

If you mix action figures, Photoshop, great photography and a playfully twisted imagination, you come up with the magic of Edy Hardjo’s work. We recently posted one of his pictures, but now we’ve hit the motherload.

The results are a pretty dang amusing and, occasionally, a little NSFW. I think the one with the mouse is my personal favorite.

Head after the break to check out more of our favorites.

sarlacc diorama

While official Star Wars canon has Boba Fett falling into the Sarlacc Pit never to return, there are stories in the non-canon Expanded Universe that have Boba Fett crawling out and escaping. However, LEGO builder Daniel Stoeffler has rescued Fett in a more creative way.

This amazing build was for a Star Wars contest over at Techlug that challenged entrants to create the story of Boba Fett’s escape in LEGO. Stoeffler not only came up with a fantastic build, but he came up with one heck of a story to go with it.

In his diorama, the Jawas run a distillery out of the Pit of Carkoon. They collect the Sarlacc’s digestive juices and then filter it to create “Jawa Juice” or “Nectar of the Sarlacc”.

Here’s where the theory gets really fun. Stoeffler suggests that Boba Fett fell in and found the opening in the Sarlacc’s stomach that contained the digestive juice collecting tube. When he makes it through into the distillery, he’s severly ill and they nurse him back to health.

During his time in the distillery, he even helps out and, after some time, Boba Fett leaves and the Jawas have a new ally.

You gotta admit, that is way cooler than a dead Boba Fett.

Head after the break to see more pictures.
