Yes, you read that right. The new Nerf Rival line will debut at Toy Fair 2015 in New York this weekend and it will feature blasters that can shoot foam balls at 70 MPH. The line includes two different blasters and, naturally, face masks.

There’s the Nerf Rival Zeus MXV-1200 ($50) which fires 12 rounds or the Nerf Rival Apollo XV-700 ($25) which fires just 7 rounds but is smaller, so you’ll be more nimble as you stalk your opponent. The face masks will sell for $15 and there will also be extra clips available so you’ll never run out of ammo.

The trisaber had everyone flipping out, and then it had everyone coming up with their own crazy variants. Now a new line of toys from Hasbro launching at Toy Fair will let you take it to the next level.

Each pack runs $49.99 and has a variety of blades and hilts so you can completely customize your lightsaber. Two, three, even four blades are possible so feel free to let your imagination run wild. Expect to see these in stores some time this September.

Your first thought on seeing this Chewbacca Furby might be that someone did a really good custom job. Turns out, Chewby / Furbacca will be sold by Hasbro for $79.99 come Fall. As with other Furbies, you’ll be responsible for feeding, bathing and playing with him through an app available for iOS or Android.

Mashable also notes that he’s responsive to touch, speaks like Chewbacca and hums the Star Wars theme, and his eyes can “populate with pictures of X-Wing Fighters and Imperial Star Destroyers” depending on his mood.

Did you know that it’s actually possible to make a Hot Wheels car drift? Phil Foss figured out a way to make it happen.

Basically you need two things:  a low-friction surface that will let the toy car’s wheel slide just a bit (Phil sells a “Driftpad” for $15 that you can use for your Hot Wheels track), and you need to launch your tiny Tokyo drifting car at just the right angle so that it doesn’t stop. Ideally, if everything’s done correctly, you can keep the car drifting in a nearly perpetual loop.

Check out the video after the break to see the concept in action…

It takes extra time and talent to build with Lego bricks but hide all those little studs. This is a technique that Chris Melby has mastered in his build of Star Trek‘s USS Enterprise. The 18,000 piece model took him eight months to build and measures a truly huge five feet long. It’s also a little bit of crossing the streams as the warp nacelles are actually Star Wars planet pieces.

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.

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…
