Finding pretend Dragon Balls in real-life just got easier with Dragon Ball Radar.

That’s right friends, Bulma’s Dragon Ball Radar device can now be yours. It animates and plays sounds but won’t actually find Dragon Balls because they don’t exist. But we won’t let pesky reality ruin the fun! Just make some Jell-O Dragon Balls and hover your Radar over them. Holy crap it works! Check out the demo video below. [click to continue…]

Behold, the only stormtrooper figure that would look perfect displayed in a China cabinet. The white of the trooper armor is covered with blue floral patterns and an Imperial logo motif.

There’s even an AT-AT on the back of his helmet! I’m in love.

It reminds me of this gorgeous customized tattoo-style trooper repaint and I find myself hoping Hot Toys does a version of that. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Capcom has created an oversized Resident Evil rocket launcher plush cushion for those days when you can’t decide if you want to blow things up or just hold your woobie.

That’s most days for me, so I can really see the appeal here. Plus, it has plush projectiles that are removable. This is a nice touch. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

First is was the live-action trailer, then it was the Funko Pops, but it appears that Beauty and the Beast madness is just warming up. In the video below, Beyond the Brick speaks with Kevin Hall about his LEGO Beauty and the Beast Castle at Brick Live Birmingham 2016. It measures 7.2 feet tall and contains an astounding 500,000 LEGO bricks. [click to continue…]

New Funko Pops are on the way based on the classic video game franchise Resident Evil. The lineup includes Jill Valentine, Leon S. Kennedy, Licker, and Nemesis.

Hunter and Tyrant will be available as super-sized 6″ Pop exclusives with Tyrant exclusively at Hot Topic, a glow-in-the-dark Tyrant at Target, and Hunter at GameStop. However, the standard figures are available to pre-order now. Take a closer look at all of the figures below. [click to continue…]

BB-8 toys come in a wide array of sizes and feature sets, but the one thing that most of them have in common is a flat, clean look. They just don’t have the character of the BB-8 in The Force Awakens.

That having been said, YouTuber “Cosplay Chris” took the relatively inexpensive (but massive) Jakks Pacific Deluxe BB-8 and gave it one hell of an upgrade that included a gritty look and a custom base. He also made sure to record the process for those of you who might want to make one of your own. Check out the video below. [click to continue…]

Wolverine is getting a makeover at Funko and the lineup includes a leather jacket wearing Logan, tank top Logan, and Weapon X. As you can see, he’s wearing less clothing in each version. Thankfully, they stopped at Weapon X and didn’t make “full frontal Logan.”

You can pre-order the Logan Pop here. The Logan tank top Pop will be a Hot Topic exclusive and Weapon X will be at Target. Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]

It seems as though the response to the initial Stranger Things Pop collection was strong enough (duh) for Funko to continue adding characters. Joyce is first up on that list and we suspect that Chief Hopper isn’t far behind. I suppose Dr. Brenner might turn up sooner or later as well. Maaaaybe even Steve Harrington. Think about it—it could be a two-for-one Jean-Ralphio figure!

If you ask me, a Mighty Morphin Power Rangers LEGO set is long overdue. With the new movie on the way, now would be a pretty good time to remedy that situation. It needs to be classic Rangers though, because the updated look of featured in the movie is just getting out of control.

Fortunately, LEGO Ideas user bruceywan is on the same wavelength because the set you see here is his proposal. He writes: [click to continue…]
