Ever since the little ball droid known as BB-8 was revealed in the teaser trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, fans were hoping that the franchise that has mastered the art of merchandising would be releasing a remote controlled BB-8 toy for fans to play with at home. And their hopes have become realities.
Not one, but two remote controlled BB-8 toys are coming on Force Friday, and we have a good look at the two different options you’ll have to choose between. They’re both relatively pricey for toys, but they just might be worth it, especially the more expensive version, which comes from Sphero, the company that helped create BB-8 in the first place.

Next month brings the new video game LEGO Dimensions, linking the world’s of the LEGO versions of Back to the Future, Ghostbusters, Scooby-Doo, Lord of the Rings and more. But I’m not even sure the LEGO video game world will be as massive or impressive as this latest creation.
LEGO master builder Michal Kazmierczak has constructed a 120,000 piece The Hobbit LEGO Erebor set, and you won’t believe how big and detailed this creation is. Even more impressive is that it’s not just an exterior LEGO creation, but it also has an incredible interior as well. I can’t even imagine how much this cost to create. Read More »
When the reboot of Ghostbusters arrives next summer, we’ll be seeing a whole new crew of paranormal exterminators played by Melissa McCarthy, Kristen Wiig, Kate McKinnon and Leslie Jones, and they have some cool new gear to bust ghosts too.

And now a helpful new video shows you how to make your own Ghostbusters ghost trap. Read More »
We’re just four days away from Force Friday, the huge unveiling of goodies that continues to fuel the hype machine for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, a day which will be preceded by an 18-hour live streaming unboxing event.

In fact, two new action figures have just been unveiled, showing us two new The Force Awakens alien characters. One of them is a Resistance X-Wing pilot while the other is a character we’ve seen before, but didn’t have a name at the time. Check out the characters below! Read More »
Even though Star Wars: The Force Awakens isn’t out until December 18th, some fans have already decided that their new favorite character is the adorable little ball droid known as BB-8.

However, we’ve yet to here what the little droid actually sounds like.
A new commercial for Star Wars LEGO sets for The Force Awakens features some quick animation specifically one part with the little droid running from Kylo Ren and some First Order Stormtroopers where we get to hear what BB-8 sounds like for the first time. Check it out below! Read More »
