If last week’s 11″ Mechagodzilla wasn’t enough, this 20″ variant is a walkin’, wrist twirlin’, head swivelin’, screechin’, roarin’ and LED flashin’ monster worthy of the name Gojira.
Think Cylon meets Silver Surfer: using two counter-rotating fans, the Cyber Surfer R/C Spaceboard is a pretty sweet flying toy; an accelerometer keeps him hanging ten instead of wiping out.
They won’t be released until March 2009, but this 400% Daft Punk Be@rbrick twin pack is all kinds of awesome; they stand 28cm tall. If you can’t wait, you can get ’em in Japan on 10/24.
We haven’t figured out a way to man them up yet, but these tiny 3.4cm tall Tomy Robo-Qs will be sure to delight the ladies by navigating around obstacles and just being ridiculously cute.
Blasphemy: we prefer Mecha to the original Godzilla: standing 11″ tall and amazingly detailed for a vinyl, Mecha Godzilla sports articulating limbs; no word on the laser eye cannon, however.

Kitbashes, repaints, mods–whatever you call ’em, these custom action figures have us drooling. From Transformers and Star Wars to Manga Spawn(!), there’s something for everyone.
