Hot Toys has just revealed their Armored Batman 1/6th Scale figure for Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice. Not surprisingly, it’s super accurate—right down to Ben Affleck’s stern face and 5 o’clock shadow.

The figure has a newly developed armored head with LED light-up eyes, two interchangeable lower faces capturing Ben Affleck’s facial expressions and weathered armor.

It also includes a grapple gun, a grenade gun (with grenades), and a specially designed Batman v Superman: Dawn of Justice-themed figure stand.

The figure will be shipping between Aug 2016 – Oct 2016 of this year and it’s currently available for pre-order at Sideshow Collectibles.

I’ve made sure to include all of the product details along with the pictures below for those of you who want to know everything there is to know about this badass figure.

17-year-old engineering prodigy Angelo Casimiro decided he wanted a BB-8 droid of his own, but the $140 Sphero version just wasn’t good enough. Instead, he invested $120 and made his own full-scale, functional example using an iPhone, a paper mache-soaked beach ball, and a domed styrofoam head fixed in place with a set of speaker magnets.

For the brains of the operation, Casimiro used an Arduino Uno microcontroller board which, in conjunction with other boards, controls a set of wheels inside the body to move the droid around.

The final product looks amazing. Check out the instructional video below to learn more about how to build one yourself.

Nerf has unveiled two new new foam-firing weapons that will be added to their anti-zombie arsenal this fall. The first, a Zombie Strike Brainsaw Blaster, not only features eight darts fired from either side of the barrel, but also includes a foam chainsaw blade that actually rotates.

Here’s hoping those zombie heads are really, REALLY soft.

The second, a Doomlands Double-Dealer Blaster, is capable of shooting 12 darts which are loaded into magazines sticking out on either side. It also features a double barrel for simultaneous firing.

Batman and LEGO are two great tastes that taste great together. And now an Australian LEGO fan has recreated Gotham City’s Arkham Asylum entirely out of LEGO bricks.

Built from approximately 18,000 bricks, Dayton (aka Forgotten Days on Flickr) spent years designing this masterpiece and had to specially order bricks in. It took three months to finish construction in time for Brickvention, an Australian LEGO convention.

The attention to detail in this recreation is magnificent, and you can check it out in photos, as well as a walkthrough video, below.

Artist Michael Zajkov specializes in making dolls look creepy realistic. Just look at the life behind those eyes.

*Shudder*

The dolls are made with polymer clay, hand-painted glass eyes, and French mohair for their hair, plus thirteen moveable joints. Perfecting a single head takes a few weeks. He dresses the dolls in vintage 1900s clothing, using antique French lace to perfect the look.

See more images (and a few videos) below.

auto nerf rival

Ahead of the official announcement at the New York Toy Fair next month, Nerf has unveiled a sneak peek at its Fall 2016 line-up, including an automatic variant of the Nerf Rival, one of last year’s most popular blasters.

If you’re not familiar with Nerf Rival, these babies shoot foam balls at speeds of up to 70MPH – not quite fast enough to activate Doc Brown’s Flux Capacitor, but a significant step forward in the Nerf arms race nonetheless.

So where do you go from there? Simple – take that blistering speed and make it automatic.
