Behold, the only stormtrooper figure that would look perfect displayed in a China cabinet. The white of the trooper armor is covered with blue floral patterns and an Imperial logo motif.

There’s even an AT-AT on the back of his helmet! I’m in love.

It reminds me of this gorgeous customized tattoo-style trooper repaint and I find myself hoping Hot Toys does a version of that. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

Capcom has created an oversized Resident Evil rocket launcher plush cushion for those days when you can’t decide if you want to blow things up or just hold your woobie.

That’s most days for me, so I can really see the appeal here. Plus, it has plush projectiles that are removable. This is a nice touch. Check out more pics below. [click to continue…]

square-enix-deadpool-main

Square Enix has unveiled their Marvel Play Arts Variant Deadpool and it’s packed with loads of interchangeable parts and accessories. Thirteen interchangeable hands, three heads, multiple knives and swords (sheaths included), a gun, and a figure stand (and a partridge in a pear tree!). He stands almost 10.5 inches and features over 20 points of articulation. Love that armor too—he looks like something out of Tony Stark’s workshop. You can pre-order him now for $149.99 with shipping slated for May 2017.

custom-bb-8

BB-8 toys come in a wide array of sizes and feature sets, but the one thing that most of them have in common is a flat, clean look. They just don’t have the character of the BB-8 in The Force Awakens.

That having been said, YouTuber “Cosplay Chris” took the relatively inexpensive (but massive) Jakks Pacific Deluxe BB-8 and gave it one hell of an upgrade that included a gritty look and a custom base. He also made sure to record the process for those of you who might want to make one of your own. Check out the video below. [click to continue…]

tea-candle-steam-engine

We came across this tea candle steam engine thanks to a video posted on Instagram by physicsisfun. It’s just one of those beautifully nerdy things that delights me to no end. I really want one for my desktop. If you have a friend or family member that’s an engineer or something, I highly suggest getting this as a holiday gift. See it in action below. [click to continue…]
