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.

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.

avengers charms

If turning your iPhone into a DeLorean time machine is a bit over the top, adding one of these Avengers: Age Of Ultron charms is the next most ridiculous thing.

Actually, they’re probably a little too awesome and unwieldily to be charms. I mean, they’re 3-4 inches tall and they light up.

The other problem is that you have to purchase them in a set of five for $73.50. Pricey yes, but wait until you see the Hulkbuster version after the break…

The Funko new item madness continues with their new 3 3/4 Karate Kid action figures. Daniel, Mr. Miyago, Ali, Kreese, and Johnny are all coming to a store near you because Funko knows that nostalgia is for everyone.

You even get Daniel in both his karate outfit and his fence painting outfit because, aside from his shower costume, it really is his second most iconic look.

The figures are estimated for an April arrival. Head after the break to see more figures.

martin talking doll

Spotted at New York Toy Fair 2015: This talking George R.R. Martin doll from Factory Entertainment, which the Game of Thrones creator himself recorded dialogue for. One of the ten things he says is “When you play the game of thrones, you win or you die.” One of the things he doesn’t say, I assume, is “f*ck you.”

Behold, the wondrous mashup that is CybeRex. This toy is straight out of the Batman Unlimited animated series and is a dinosaur with a cage for a stomach that holds the bad guys. On his back sits Batman with a disk launcher that actually shoots. From the press release:

Get exciting play right out of the package with the gargantuan CybeRex™ and Batman action figure! As seen in the Batman Unlimited animation series, the beast features colorful, iconic details, 5 points of articulation for major action and offensive attack and an awesome transformation: just squeeze the trigger on his tail and a disk launcher, disguised as exoskeleton, slides up and forward! His neck lowers and his jaw opens as Batman™ slides up with it to take aim. Pull the trigger behind his seat, and the disk launcher fires in quick succession! Villains don’t stand a chance. When you bring them down, lock them up in the CybeRex™ belly jail. The streets of Gotham City are safe again!

There’s also a matching blue and gold Batmobile that you can check out after the break. There are no release dates or prices yet, but you know you want these on your desk.

labyrinthbarbiesedit

Last month we featured an incredible set of Labyrinth dolls that one awesome dad made for his equally awesome 7-year-old daughter. They looked good enough to make you think they were something bought off the shelf, but he actually customized them from ordinary dolls.

Now he’s released a video showing exactly how he made it happen. He shows not only how he made the hair and clothes, but how he picked just the right dolls for their specific facial expressions. There’s also a chance for a subscriber to win a pair of dolls if he hits 1000 subscribers overall on his YouTube channel.

See the video after the break.

The Needler is an iconic weapon from Halo, and soon you’ll be able to play with a toy dart gun version from Mattel that appears to be based on the BOOMco Twisted Spinner.

It was spotted at Toy Fair in New York City over the weekend and it’s got darts that glow and will stick to specially treated surfaces.

legendary yoda

On the more mysterious but definitely exciting Toy Fair news front, check out this sneak peek of the new Star Wars Legendary Yoda interactive robotic toy from Spin Master.

It’s hard to know exactly what’s going on with this figure, but the few glimpses available in the teaser they released make me think this may be the toy of the holiday.

Spin Master says to keep an eye out for his arrival sometime in Fall 2015.

Check it out after the break.
