Funko’s quest to take over your toy shelf continues with a new line of Pop!s for Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I’m especially fond of Tim the Enchanter’s mini rabbit, sans visible big pointy teeth, and the Black Knight with all of his limbs (I suspect a variant without them is a foregone conclusion).

Holy crap, I really want to see Danny Benedettelli use this Lego exoskeleton on something like this.

It was built using the Lego Mindstorms NXT system and an Android phone on which he was running a proprietary app. The robot is controlled via a Bluetooth connection.

As cool as it looks, he says it’s just a prototype. He is planning to continue working on the project, adding things like controls to open and close the hands.

Brace yourselves, Sherlock fans, the adorbz have come for the Sherlock cast. They have Benedict Cumberbatch’s Sherlock spot on, right down to the tousled hair and the scarf! Martin Freeman’s Watson is stoically stoic, Moriarty’s devilish, Irene’s cool and calculating, and Mycroft is perfectly Mycroft.

This wicked tank with mine flails is the creation of Tommy Styrvoky. It’s a 1/18th scale replica of a WWII M4 Sherman tank. In addition to the flails, there is a turret with a 360-degree traverse, a gun that rises up, a two-gear transmission and electronic braking.

See more pictures and a video of the tank in action after the break.

The successful Kickstarter launched last summer by ESC-Toy and Devolver Digital produced a very cool Hotline Miami action figure. Fans asked for a Biker and they delivered. The project will easily surpass its goal, so you expect delivery of your figure in June 2016 should you decide to pledge.

bouncy ball

Those bouncy balls that come out of vending machines fly all over the place once you get them bouncing. Niko Pueringer, Sam Gorski, and Corridor Digital created an amazing POV video of a ball that wreaks havoc through the streets of LA. There’s also a making-of video that shows how they pulled off the trick.

We previously featured a teaser of the 1/6th scale Millennium Falcon from Hot Toys and now we’ve got a closer look to share. The insane 18′ long and 12′ model will be featured at Ani-Com and Games Hong Kong 2015 as a part of their Star Wars display—and that’s probably where the story ends. Odds are this won’t be sold to the public, which is the recently unveiled cockpit comes in. Still, you might want to prepare to take a second mortgage on your house just in case.
