Captain America got the Square Enix Play Arts treatment, and these are the first official images of the variant figure.

It’s definitely more reserved than other figures in the series however. Beefier armor with a more aggressive look. It works, but I still prefer my Play Arts figures to be crazy as hell.

See another picture after the break.

cat-scratch-laptop

Of course I love my cat, but holy sh*t get off my laptop already! Thankfully, there’s this kitty friendly laptop complete with a scratching board. The cardboard laptop comes with “pre-installed” stickers, hi-res wallpaper image (which can be swapped out for your own), tethered mouse, and a scratching board in place of a keyboard. Hopefully Mr. Kitty won’t get wise to the lack of scrolling so I can get back to scrolling working on my laptop.

Check out another image sans the cat after the break.

rocking speeder bike

Y’know, I love my parents and I’m very happy wth who I am, but some part of me wishes I could have been born as this baby girl. Awesome dad and Instructables user Tez_Gilmer made this The 74-Z Speeder model from Return of the Jedi for his daughter’s first birthday and I am super jealous right now.

There’s a new Ronin Samurai bounty hunter joining the stunning Star Wars Bandai Movie Realization figure line. The Star Wars Ronin Samurai Boba Fett Meisho Movie Realization action figure is sculpted by artists Takeyuki Takeya and Junichi Taniguchi.

His EE-3 rifle has been turned into a flint-lock style blaster, his “backpack missile” can be removed / attached, and his helmet-mounted scope is moveable. He’s also got a short ninja-style katana and sheath, as well as numerous ninja-style blade accessories that can be subtly attached to his shin and forearm areas.

ThreeZero-Kevin-Eastman-TMNT-630x420

While Michael Bay’s Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle movies aren’t everyone’s cup of tea, they have helped keep the turtles in the limelight. ThreeZero is looking to tap into the nostalgia with a line of comic-inspired sixth-scale action figures and they’ve brought Kevin Eastman, one of the original TMNT creators, on board to help.

Millennium-Falcon-Playhouse

Coolest Dad ever Kyle Gilbert created this awesome replica of the Millennium Falcon Cockpit for his Star Wars fankids. The project only took a weekend to build, using a few inexpensive materials (like PVC board, MDF, tons of glue, and a few other odds and ends). The cockpit itself is pretty detailed with fake light-up control panels and a flight dashboard with working buttons and switches.

Steampunk Batman

The last Timeless Batman figure in the Play Arts Variant line was Wild West Batman. This time out, we get a Steampunk Batman, which imagines our hero’s Batsuit with 19th-century Victorian flair.

I like the goggles. I wish I had a picture of the back so I could see if the cape had any additional mechanics.

lego brickumentary

LEGOholics have another film to check out–if you’d rather not spend your time with a 584th viewing of The LEGO Movie, that is. A LEGO Brickumentary, a documentary (as its title would indicate) by directors Kief Davidson and Daniel Junge and narrated by minifig Jason Bateman, hit theaters and VOD (including iTunes) over the weekend. For a little amuse brick bouche, here are 15 facts you (yes, you) can learn from the film.

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).

See them all after the break.
