dragon pop funko 1

The sequel to the popular How to Train Your Dragon doesn’t hit theaters until June, but plenty of merchandise is already rolling out. It’s hard to resist so many cute Toothless toys! Funko POP! is adding more items to my wish list with their take on characters from the movie. Their line-up includes Toothless (of course), Hiccup, Astrid, Stormfly, Hookfang, and the two-headed Barf and Belch. You’ll be able to scoop up the collectibles in April.

See the rest of the gang after the break.

got wood toys 1

The LTD Gallery in Seattle is hosting an art show inspired by George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire starting tomorrow, March 1st. One of the participating artists, Mick Minogue, is offering a unique take on some characters in the series. He’s created eight wooden action figures for a line of “Battle Damage” toys, choosing characters who carry visible scars of their fights and misfortunes. I’ve never seen art quite like this and can’t get over the craftsmanship. Minogue has put a ton of work into the characters and the toy packaging.

He’s revealed three of the figures in the collection so far – the Hound, Jaime Lannister, and Theon Greyjoy. He’ll be showing off one a day until Saturday and then all of them will be posted online.

Check out two more characters after the break. Beware spoilers through season three.

Lego Cuusoo has turned some fantastic nerdy properties like Back to the Future and Ghostbusters into our favorite toys, but Doctor Who has never been on that list. The reason came down to licensing rights which prohibited Lego from building anything Whovian…until now. An update to Lego’s project guidelines has given Doctor Who a thumbs up, so what are you waiting for? Break out those Lego bricks and start building that TARDIS!

adipose science putty

ThinkGeek loves to make things that are cute, fun, and distraction worthy. I think these Doctor Who Adipose Science Putties count.

You get three “fat” putties that will melt into a putty puddle over time when you take them out of their packaging, and you can mold them into whatever you like and then just pop them back into their Adipose molds when you’re done.

They even include little plastic eyes and smiles that you can plug into the putty.

My first thought was “I wonder if I could copy comic book pages, reform them and have comic book Adipose?”

Can someone please do that and send me pictures, please?

Check out the “melted” version after the break.

mario kart ride on

Allow us to introduce the Super Mario Kart Ride-On.

Jakks Pacific and Nintendo are making this bad boy as a “full size” 6V ride-on version of the kart in Mario Kart 7. I did some digging and found it available for US pre-order at Toys R Us with a March 7th arrival date. It will be available in the UK sometime towards the end of the year.

I’m looking forward to the slew of adults who “buy this for the kids” and hijack it.

Ecto-1 Cozy Coupe

Redditor tabres may be the coolest uncle on the planet. No disrespect to any other uncles, but this one built his nephew a custom Ghostbusters Ecto-1 Cozy Coupe with flashing lights and a license plate and everything.

Is that a Power Rangers toy in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me? This new toy is the latest based on a train-themed Power Rangers series airing in Japan called Ressha Sentai Tokkyuujaa which translates to “Furious Train Squadron Limited Express Rangers.” The toy has all the heroes joining together to form one giant robot, but if you don’t fold up that red train per the instructions, you get a mega-robot with a mega-boner.

See what we mean after the break…

wonder woman figure 1

Make space on your toy shelf and start saving some cash because you may just need this Wonder Woman Premium Format Figure from Sideshow Collectibles. The figure of the Amazonian princess stands at 25.5 inches tall and is packed with drool-worthy details from her wavy hair down to her striped boots. Diana looks beautiful and fierce in this sculpt; I’m in love with this representation of the character.

Besides the wonderfully crafted figure, you’ll receive several accessories: the trusty Lasso of Truth, a spear, and a battle axe. A helmet and sword rest at her feet. Yeah, everything about this piece kicks butt. Now, if we could just get a Wonder Woman movie…

magic the gathering pop funko

Funko has a knack for taking characters to the next level of adorable with their Pop! line, and they’ve definitely used their skills on these Magic: The Gathering Planeswalker figures. Funko just announced the new licensing agreement with Wizards of the Coast and besides the cute Pop! toys, they’re also releasing a line of action figures featuring over 20 points of articulation. So fancy!

The first series of Magic toys will be out in April and feature the following characters: Jace Beleren, Garruk Wildspeaker, Chandra Nalaar, Liliana Vess, Ajani Goldmane and Nissa Revane. The deluxe figures will be available starting in August. I’m seriously drooling over the Goldmane design. Why must Funko try to take all my money?

Check out the deluxe action figures after the break.
