Unlock the hero within! Or, more accurately, unlock your front door and grab that hero you left in your fridge when you rushed out the door late for work. You’ll need that lunch to maintain your energy for the quest ahead.

Indeed, the Key Armory designs keys that look like swords—famous swords like lightsabers and gunblades in fact. There’s also a version based on the Hylian shield. Check out more designs below. [click to continue…]

Artist Disse86 has a twisted mind. He’s taken beloved cartoon characters like Winnie the Pooh, Shrek and Totoro and turned them into hellish nightmares. Honestly, they’re a little unsettling to look at, but I’ll bet you want to check out the pieces below anyway… [click to continue…]

We’re a week away from Rogue Friday and Hasbro just revealed five new Star Wars Rogue One retailer exclusives for Walmart, Target, Amazon, Toys R Us, and Kmart.

Of the five, I’m definitely eyeballing the Black Series Shadow Trooper electronic helmet and the programmable R2-D2, but all five look pretty solid.

There’s a slight spoiler on the Jyn figure packaging/description, so if you’re trying to stay unspoiled, this is your warning. Check out all of the details on the lineup below. [click to continue…]

It appears that the artists and writers at Bungie up and decided to make a children’s book based on Destiny called, appropriately enough, D Is For Destiny. It’s a clever strategy. The time that you should be spending with your kids instead of playing video games can now be spent talking to your kids about video games. Brilliant!

From the world of Destiny, this rhyming alphabet book created by the artists and writers at Bungie takes young readers on a voyage through a universe of adventure. From Four-Armed Fallen to the Mysteries of Mercury and the Moon, D is for Destiny makes exploring the far reaches of the solar system as easy as A, B, C.

Check out some pics from the book below. [click to continue…]

If you want a PC case that looks like it fell out of the incredibly stylized world of the Borderlands series, Ford Ashton’s your man (you can contact him for commissions). He built this custom case as a gift for his girlfriend after her previous PC bit the dust a few weeks back. Right now it’s just the case – there’s no hardware inside – but that’ll come soon.

We reckon it looks Claptrapular. Take a closer look below. [click to continue…]

Here’s some good news fans of The Dark Crystal who coveted their convention-only ReAction figures. Funko is releasing ReAction figures of Jen, Kira, Aughra, The Chamberlain, and UrSol the Chanter that everyone can buy.

You know you’ve done a pretty awesome Deadpool Pikachu mashup when Ryan Reynolds shares it.

Pikapool was created by Ramtraz who says it was modeled, textured and mapped in ZBrush, rendered in KeyShot, then edited in Photoshop.

He also did another render in a different color, which you can check out below. Needless to say, this would make for an amazing vinyl figure. [click to continue…]

Over the years LEGO have released a lot of really cool robotics kits, ranging from simple programmable motors to more complex creations. One thing they haven’t done, however, is produce LEGO drones. Surprising, considering how popular and prolific drones have become over the last few years.

Thankfully, Flybrix have stepped in to fill the gap. These kits ship with instructions and all the LEGO bricks you need to knock out a working drone which can be remote-controlled via their iOS Android app. Not only that, but you can customize them with the LEGO bricks you already have. If you fancy slapping additional rotors to give it more lift, you can absolutely do that as well.

Flybrix kits can be purchased from their website – the basic kit costs $149, while the deluxe kit (which comes with its own dedicated remote control) is $189. See Flibrix in action below. [click to continue…]

If Tim Burton illustrated some of Marvel and DC’s most popular superheroes, what would they look like? Well, they’d probably look something like these illustrations from artist Andrew Tarusov, who you may recall from the Tim Burton treatment he gave to Disney characters earlier this year. Check out more of his Tim Burton-style superhero art below. [click to continue…]
