MiniCo. Thanos Endgame Figure

MiniCo. Thanos Endgame Figure

Thanos isn’t quite as intimidating when you can fit him in the palm of your hand, but Sideshow and Iron Studios‘ 7.8″ tall take on the destroyer of galaxies still has plenty of attitude as he dons his double-edged sword and his golden battle suit. Pre-order now for Q4 2020 delivery.

Traxxas Sledgehammer R/C Tires

Just like a real 4×4, if you’re going to take your R/C vehicle off-road, it needs proper tires. Traxxas is showing off their extreme new Sledgehammer tires.

5MadMovieMakers has a little fun with Mario, Luigi, Peach, and Yoshi as they zoom along Hot Wheels tracks, performing jumps, spinning through loops, and racing each other in a real-life version of Mario Kart. Using a loop of track as a monowheel was a fun trick we’ve not seen before.

Weapon replica maker Blackfish shows us how he used a wide variety of plastic medical syringes and a whole lot of glue to create a working replica of an M4A1 rifle.

Squeakee Balloon Dog Robot

Squeakee Balloon Dog Robot

Moose Toys turned up at the 2020 New York Toy Fair with Squeakee, a robotic dog that looks just like a shiny balloon animal.

LEGO Robot GBC Module

LEGO Robot GBC Module

We’re surprised that LEGO machine expert JK Brickworks has never built a Great Ball Contraption module before, but his first one definitely lives up to his standards. Watch as four tiny LEGO robots work along an assembly line, each passing a ball to the next to move it down the line. It also appears to work as a hypnosis device.

Wooden Magic 8-Ball

A few years back, we watched an artist craft a beautiful replica of an 8-ball from wood. Now, watch as Oregon woodworker Carl Jacobsen creates a shell for a Magic 8-ball toy, with a cool basketweave pattern on its exterior. Also, we always thought the whole toy was filled with liquid, not just a cylinder in its middle.
