Granted we’re grown-up and all, but we’re giddy for Lego’s Castle Troll Assault Wagon. A goofy mix of LOTR and Warhammer, it even comes with two hapless knights.
If high school bio and anatomy got together, you’d get Emilio Garcia’s Jumping Brains. The limited edition RGB brains are already sold out, but DIY 3″ resin brains are coming soon.
Something (perhaps unearthly) about the spikes sticking out of Hiroto Ohkubo’s 8.5″ Inc bear speaks to us; the 85 in Japan have been sold out, with only 3 left at Tokyocube.
Nada”One’s KID666 is now available; these demons with altered Adidas sneakers are sold in batches of 30; so-called secret versions of 13 come with a limited edition drawing.
“Insanely” detailed, this 1:6 scale, 12″ Bank Robber Joker comes with plenty of goodies, including two heads, a clown mask, two guns, gloves and a grenade duffel.
The Empire apparently dominated the ’08 Olympics, as these Lego dioramas by Alan Chia show. Most memorable moment: stormtrooper spoofs the relay, gets throttled by Vader.
We’re big fans of M. Heislers custom Slobots, so we’re really digging this heavily modified Moody Slobot; he’s made for shark hunting, hence the fins and oxygen tube.
Chinese mythology buffs (you know you’re out there) will love this Lei Gong, God of Thunder vinyl. A bird in a Charlie Brown shirt with a bomb and flip flops: works for us.
We have to admit the Climbatron is utterly pointless (and likely annoying), but it is pretty cool. Using suction cups, it climbs on vertical surfaces–great for driving friends up the wall.
We featured Keith Poon’s WW2 Sharky Vinyls earlier; Toyqube is now selling 54 custom, one-of-a-kind Sharkys. Our favorites are the Reactor88 and Ultraman customs.
Marka27’s 16″ tall Minigods have an ace up their sleeve chest — these limited edition vinyls also double as speakers, with a mini-jack and battery-powered internal amp.
The Black Stealth Helicopter isn’t the first dual rotor RC copter, but at $30 it’s one of the most affordable. The 3-channel copter can moves up, down, left, right, forwards and backwards.
Make every day Emergence Day with these amazingly detailed Gears of War action figures by NECA. Series 2 includes Fenix and Santiago, but we most like the Theron Guards.
The Oversized Darth Vader vinyl is named thusly because it’s double the size of the original 8″ collectible, towering at roughly 17″ in height. It’s limited to a run of 600 Anakins.
The Draganflyer X6 UAV’s three rotors seem excessive, but it’s made for surveillance: stable at 18 MPH winds with a built-in GPS, it hauls cameras and camcorders for covert shooting.
The above video celebrates the 30th anniversary of the iconic Lego Miniman; it’s even available in 3D. We didn’t know he even had a name; that being said, Go, Miniman, Go!
The Residents is a set of vinyls by Steven Cerio, named after an avant-garde band of the same name. There are only 100 available, ranging from painted to glow in the dark.
Hot Toys’ Iron Man Mark III reads like an ultimate action figure wishlist: 36 articulation points, sleek metallic paint, and 3 swappable hands. Sweet: the eyes, heart and repulsor hand light up.
Furby Gurdy is a twisted take on a medieval noisemaker known as a hurdy gurdy. Twisting a hand-crank forms and breaks circuits; the result … well, just watch the video above.
This Warrior Alien (from the movie Aliens) will be released by Medicom Toys this November. The vinyl figure are a little more cartoony but still plenty menacing: we loves it.
Michael Lau’s SK3 trio is an homage to three Stanley Kubrick films: A Clockwork Orange, Full Metal Jacket and 2001. Each includes accessories and an extra set of hands.
The EXI 450ZL Pro Version is an electric mini heli with an Alpha 400 brushless motor and 1300 mAh Li-Po battery. It comes 95% assembled, meaning nearly instant 3D acrobatics.
Shin Tanaka’s T-Boy is an exceptionally well designed vinyl, from the crowbar arms down to the sneakers. We particularly like the graphic ringer tee and that fact that his arms rotate.
Brian McCarty has just released his Juke Bot, a “throwback” to the analog era. We really like the iPod-esque track wheel which has been swapped with an LP; only 500 will be made.
We can’t get enough of The Simpsons, and judging from the successful launch of Toy2R’s Simpsons mini figures at Kidrobot LA, we’re in good company. Also available at Fugitive Toys.
Amazing colorways, Kaiju styling and a limited edition, glow in the dark Plutonium edition mean we’ll be emptying our wallets for Atomic Mushroom’s Combat-R Zero vinyls very soon.
