Well, it looks like Tez Gilmir is in the running for a nerdy Dad-of-the-year award. His son has a big thing for Lego, so Tez decided to make a portable workstation for him as a way to encourage him to keep pursuing his creative hobby.

The station unfolds and features a cabinet, bins, a little stool and a table where his son can play with his Lego. When everything’s packed away and the table and stool are folded back up, the station transforms into a giant Lego piece (you can see what it looks like after the break).

This Lego version of the ship in Interstellar was created by jp_velociraptor and includes details that make it just perfect. There are minifigs of the crew and a great TARS and CASE. This would be a nice one to be able to buy.

Haha…look at the giant heads on these blind-boxed Power Rangers figures! Let’s hope they don’t run into a tribe of headhunters that know karate.

Each measures about 3″ tall and has 10 points of articulation. They also have removable helmets and a few accessories, so they’ve got a little more going for them than your typical blind-box figure (hence the $12.99 price tag). The first series features the 5 primary Rangers, White Ranger, Green Ranger, Rita Repulsa, Lord Zedd and Goldar.

Hey, now! It looks like Captain… um… Iron Hulk’s gonna save… yeah… Thor… you know what? I give up. I’m not sure who’s coming to save the day. While the latest wave of “Hero Mashers” toys from Hasbro might seem a bit confusing at first, they’re actually pretty cool.

The deal here is that Avengers action figures come apart, which means that you can break them down and build entirely new heroes from all the loose bits! The above pic shows what a total mash-up creation would look like, but after the break you can check out the individual figures.

ultron funko

Avengers fans, listen up! We’ve got some potentially spoiler-y news for you about a possible change that could occur for a Marvel character in the upcoming Avengers: Age of Ultron. We also have your first look at the Funko Pop! figures for the film.

An image from PopVinyls.com reveals that a Hot Topic exclusive figure of the “Savage Hulk” will premiere alongside the new lineup of Avengers 2 figures. There have been rumors about a Savage toy floating around the Web since December, but this is the first time that any details about the toy have popped up.

For the uninitiated, the “grey” Hulk is a more cunning (and crueler) version of the Hulk that Bruce Banner can sometimes transform into. He’s not as powerful as his green, smash-‘em-up cousin, but he’s definitely got a lot more going on upstairs.

Keep in mind that Hot Topic gets lots of Funko variants, so this could mean nothing—much like the Deep Space suit figure from Iron Man 3 had nothing to do with the movie.

Check out some close-ups of the Avengers 2 Funko Toys after the break along with the grey Hulk image…

Four Horsies of the ‘Pocalypse is the work of Bigshot Toyworks who bring us Calamity (Pestilence), Raven (Famine), Clash (War) and Ghost (Death). These are the scariest ponies ever with skulls and big teeth and flaming bodies. These ponies are not interested in friendship—only chaos.

They’re currently up on kickstarter with pledges of about $100 getting you all four in the frightening set.

Monolith Board Games LLC is currently heading up a Kickstarter to raise funds for a Conan board game, and things are looking pretty good: they’ve raised over $500,000—obliterating their original goal of $80,000 (and they still have 26 days to go!).

Conan fans will definitely love this game, as it features everything from Natohk to mummies. The description reads:

Conan is a miniature-based board game that pits one player, the overlord, who controls hordes of savage tribesmen, no-good lowlifes and undead minions against 1 to 4 players who incarnate the legendary Conan and his fellow adventurers. The gameplay is asymetric, as the overlord possesses a large selection of models and objectives which are his own, whereas the brave heroes are played from a first person perspective, much like in a role playing game. An adventure can be played out in 1 hour on one of the beautiful game boards (depicting iconic locations of Howard’s immersive Hyborian world) as you pit your wits, daring and tactical acumen against your opponent.

Check out the project video after the break…

3D printed thorgi

Does your shelf of collectibles need figures of Internet sensations? Then you can breathe a sigh of relief because Eric Ho has you covered. He has 3D printed collectibles of Thorgi and BaneCat in his shop, and they are about as precious as you’d expect. The tiny figurines are available in full color sandstone (the best option in my opinion) and various metals. Adopting Internet famous pets has never been easier.

See Bane Cat and more Thorgi after the break.

When you have a lot of nerdy toys and art, it can be hard to know what to display and how to display it. A couple of Redditors had the same idea recently and matched their figures with posters on the wall. The above picture features Spider-Man, Hulk, and Iron Man. Apparently Redditor HotDog804 doesn’t own any Iron Man toys so he improvised. It works.

See a similar concept but with Nintendo ladies after the break.

The horrible box art on the 1987 Mega Man NES game is legendary. In fact, it became infamous enough to make its way into Street Fighter vs Tekken as a playable character. Now we have this action figure that is both hideous and fantastic. Just look at that gut.
