The Dartsplosion looks like it is poised to be the ultimate weapon in your dart gun arsenal. This beast from BoomCo is powered by six C batteries and has a pair of barrels so that it can fire 72 rounds total.

There’s a switch to toggle between automatic fire which empties the barrel when you hold the trigger or single fire where each pull of the trigger is a single shot.

The Death Star is a deadly weapon that can destroy whole planets, but it’s all cute and happy in this Lego build by Steve Price. He created a Lego Friends version that includes a beauty salon, candy store, and even a pet shop. How can that much cute be deadly?

This huge mosaic recreates the cover of the 1977 Basic Set for Dungeons & Dragons out of more than 50,000 Legos. It measures 75″ wide and 90″ tall and took artist Eric Harshbarger two months to build. He was inspired to make the mosaic because he still breaks out that old edition to run campaigns.

Once you get hooked on Lego, the challenge is finding the room to store your growing collection. Architect Jeffrey Pelletier didn’t just buy a couple of plastic bins, he designed an entire basement around his collection.

It holds 250,000 pieces in 153 bins and 189 drawers that are carefully organized by size and color. He even designed things so that the room does double-duty as a multimedia center. Yeah, we’re jealous, too.

Toy Story fans, try not to drool over this insanely accurate Woody doll designed by Medicom. He’ll be out in December to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the film and will be a 15″ tall action figure with three changeable faces, several hands with different poses, and a drawstring on his back.

No detail was spared, which is why collectors will have to shell out a whopping $380 to get their hands on one.

bb-8

The little rolling ball that is the BB-8 droid has been a big hit with fans based solely on glimpses from the trailers, and this might be your first look at the official Sphero remote control toy. Fat Brain Toys had a listing up for the toy with a retail price of $150 and availability of September 1st, but the listing has since been yanked.

We’ll have to wait and see if it reappears in the coming months, but you don’t have to wait to get your hands on something similar. Christian Poulsen hacked a Sphero toy to build a BB-8 and you can too.

my_talking_elcor_plush_toy_mass_effect_by_sanshee_1-620x789

In case you were wondering, April Fools’ Day was weeks ago—the Talking Elcor Plush actually exists.

If you are unfamiliar with the Mass Effect universe, the Elcor are a massive, generally friendly species found on the Citadel. They are described as being “deliberate” and “conservative” with a monotone voice that appears to lack emotion. Because of this, they tend to describe what would otherwise be expressed with tone and body language.

As the product page states:

“My Talking Elcor voices a love greater than the gravity of Dekuuna and is scientifically engineered for maximum huggability and affection.”

Find out what Elcor says and see the plush in action after the break…

hulkbuster figure

This unbelievable Hulkbuster figure is coming soon from Comicave Studios. It’s one-quarter scale which makes it 4-feet-tall and it even has lights and articulation. The best part is the armor which automatically opens to reveal an Iron Man Mark 43 hiding inside. This is a prototype so the final version may differ slightly, but it’s still destined to be quite a collectible.

See it in action in the video after the break.
