THE BEST Toys

Custom Sharkys

Custom Sharkys

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.

Minigods Speakers

Minigods Speakers

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.

Video: Black Stealth Copter

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.

Gears of War Series 2

Gears of War Series 2

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.

Oversized Darth Vader

Oversized Darth Vader

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.

Draganflyer X6 UAV

Draganflyer X6 UAV

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.

Go Miniman Go!

Go Miniman Go!

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 Vinyls

The Residents Vinyls

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.

Iron Man Mark III

Iron Man Mark III

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.

Video: Furby Gurdy

Video: Furby Gurdy

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.

Warrior Alien Vinyl

Warrior Alien Vinyl

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.

SK3 Stanley Kubrick Vinyls

SK3 Stanley Kubrick Vinyls

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.

EXI 450ZL Mini Heli

EXI 450ZL Mini Heli

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.

T-Boy Vinyl

T-Boy Vinyl

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.

Juke Bot

Juke Bot

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.

Simpsons Mini-Figures

Simpsons Mini-Figures

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.

Combat-R Zero Robots

Combat-R Zero Robots

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.

Jamungo Sqube

Jamungo Sqube

Jamungo’s iconic Sqube combines the best of both worlds, with a skull-motif and straight, rectilinear design. A recessed, cubical notch allows you to interlock multiple Squbes.

Video: RC Heli Fishing

Video: RC Heli Fishing

Using a radio-controlled E-Flite Blade 400, retired marine and present-day UAV consultant Dave Herbert gives a new meaning to “fly fishing” with the video above. Warning: circus music.

Revoltech Protect Gear

Revoltech Protect Gear

Kerberos Saga is one of our fave alternative histories (Japan loses WW2 to the Germans), so we’re pumped about this 6″ Protect Gear by Revoltech, due to release in September.

Zombie Hunt Lego Diorama

Zombie Hunt Lego Diorama

Nothing beats an old fashioned zombie attack to get the blood pumpin’: this Zombie Hunt Lego diorama by Justin Vaughn is inspired by Max Brooks’ Zombie Survival Guide and World War Z.

House of Liu Shaolin Monks

House of Liu Shaolin Monks

Unfortunately, we came across the Student edition (above) of House of Liu’s awesome Shaolin Monk vinyls too late. However, scope out this equally cool bronzed Rotofugi version.

Doktor A Custom Yoka

Doktor A Custom Yoka

This heavily customized Yoka bear is mad expensive, but anything with a head like a Sarlacc gets our respect. We also like the retro/steampunk accents on the feet, ear and eyes.

Hot Toys Bat Pod

Hot Toys Bat Pod

The Dark Knight‘s 1:6 scale Bat Pod is about a hundred types of awesome, with machine guns, a grappling hook and light-up headlights. Available at the end of the year.

GAMA-Goon

GAMA-Goon

GAMA-Goon is the latest to join GAMA-GO’s stable of critters; it’s actually an eight-year old design. 99 will be made in chrome, with one made out of gold. They come in the retro tin seen above.

MechRC Robot

MechRC Robot

Three years in the making, the MechRC is a programmable robot with 17 independently controlled servos: in short, it can dance the funky chicken without breaking a sweat.
