GOT playset

Pretty soon, you’ll be able to drop your favorite action figures into Westeros thanks to Todd McFarlane, who has created new figures and playsets for Game Of Thrones.

The first release is the Iron Throne Room which includes Joffrey and Tyrion along with Lannister guards and members of the Kingsguard. Future playsets will include a Mother of Dragons set and an Attack on The Wall set with figures that include Daenerys, John Snow, Ghost, Grey Worm, Rhaegal, and more (Rhaegal intrigues me as an addition). The sets will retail for $14.99 to $49.99 and figures for $3.99 each.

If someone doesn’t put Princess Leia on that throne, I’ll be mightily disappointed.

There are so many wonderful Funko Pop! figures, but until now, none of them have come with a MultiPass. The company has just announced a line of The Fifth Element figures that includes two versions of Leeloo, Korben Dallas, Zorg, a Mangalore, and Diva Plavalaguna. We can only hope that Ruby Rhod will be added soon.

The figures will be available starting this October.

play arts kai venom 2

Square Enix does it again with the new Marvel Universe Venom Variant Play Arts Kai figure. Standing 10 inches tall, this thing is so good it literally freaks me out.

It’s not quite as crazy as some other Play Arts figures, but between the sculpt and the paint, it’s amazing looking and it has a range of motion that allows for some awesome poses.

Accessories include interchangeable hands, effect parts that show symbiote appendages reaching out like massive hands, an alternate head, and a display stand.

Meet the Dino-Pet. “Part art, part pet, and part science project”, the Dino-Pet is a plastic aquarium shaped like an Apatosaurus and filled with bioluminescent plankton called Dinoflagellates.

During the day, you get a cute little sculpture that allows for photosynthesis in indirect sunlight. At night, shake the Dino-Pet and the plankton light up.

The kit comes with the aquarium and an instruction book, plus a voucher to have the Dinoflagellates and Dino food sent to you.

When Jason Allemann of JK Brickworks set out to build a LEGO mosaic printer, he didn’t just plan to build the mosaics out of LEGO, but the printer as well.

The Bricasso uses the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 to scan an image and then recreates that image in LEGO mosaic using 1×1 LEGO plates. That’s already pretty cool, but the fact that the printer is also built out of LEGO is what really got me.

See it in action after the break.

There’s a brand new Sonic Screwdriver Universal Remote debuting at San Diego Comic-Con on July 8, 2015 at the BBC AMERICA shop (booth #4129), and it’s been updated to reflect the changes made to the 12th Doctor’s Sonic. It even includes the long-awaited “flick to extend” feature.

“The keen-eyed Whovian will notice subtle differences between the Sonic Screwdriver favored by the Eleventh Doctor and the one currently used by the Twelfth Doctor. We listened to fans’ requests and have evolved the design to match what’s onscreen, including the fun flick-to-extend feature,” said Chris Barnardo, co-founder of The Wand Company.

Features include:

The 1:1 scale Sonic Screwdriver can store up to 39 remote control commands, is equipped with 12 authentic Sonic Screwdriver sound effects and a customizable personal lock code, and has 12 secret Morse code phrases from the Twelfth Doctor to decipher. Die cast in hand-polished, copper-plated metal, with a new stand that allows the Sonic Screwdriver to be displayed vertically, this device is not only a serious prop that will delight collectors, but with its host of authentic sonic sounds, it is also a cosplayer’s dream come true.

To top it off, the Sonic Screwdrivers sold at Comic-Con will each come with a signed certificate of authenticity, and will be a limited edition only available at the BBC AMERICA booth while supplies last. If you wont be attending SDCC, remote will be sold by select retailers later this summer.
