One example is a tease of an upcoming Star Wars toy by Spin-Master. It’s called Legendary Yoda and we don’t know exactly what it does but a teaser video is about as tantalizing and fun as teaser videos gets. Check out the Star Wars Legendary Yoda from Spin-Master below. Read More »

While we wait for the hoverboards and self-tying Nikes we were promised, here’s another way to make your 2015 feel a bit more like Marty McFly’s 2015. Japanese toy company Bandai has announced a Back to the Future DeLorean iPhone case.
By that, we don’t mean they’ve just taken a plain old iPhone case and painted on some fancy pictures. No, this is a detailed miniature model with working lights and everything. You’ll have to supply your own flux capacitor if you actually want to send it through time, though.
Watch a video of the Back to the Future DeLorean iPhone case in action after the jump. Read More »
For fans who find themselves in the cross section between Star Wars and Lego, an Ultimate Collectors Series announcement is an event. One or twice a year Lego reveals a massive set, aimed at adult collectors, with the kind of detail worthy of the Jedi. The most recent one was the Boba Fett Slave 1. Before that? The Sandcrawler. Saturday, Lego announced the Ultimate Collector’s Series Tie Fighter, a 1685 piece behemoth of a set that’ll be out in May. Below, read more about the new Star Wars Lego Tie Fighter, see photos and a video. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Star Wars: The Force Awakens might not be revealing any toys at this weekend’s New York Toy Fair, but other major 2015 films are. We’ve already seen a bunch of Avengers: Age of Ultron stuff and today we’ve got a slew of toys from Colin Trevorrow‘s Jurassic World.
The highlight here is our best look yet at the deadly hybrid Indominus Rex, which was teased in the first trailer, the Super Bowl spot as well as on the website. Here, you’ll finally see exactly what it looks like so if you’re worried about that, beware of spoilers.
There are other things to see here too, like a brand new Lego set, several of the new dinosaurs from the film and a hilarious T-Rex hand puppet. See the new Jurassic World toys below. Read More »
So much — maybe too much — has been made of Kylo Ren’s cross guard lightsaber from Star Wars: The Force Awakens. The discussion has been all over YouTube; it made it to Comedy Central, and even to J.J. Abrams himself. It turns out though, Kylo Ren’s lightsaber was just the beginning.
Ezra on Star Wars Rebels recently changed what a lightsaber could be by putting one on the end of a blaster. And later this year, Hasbro will allow fans to make any kind of lightsaber they imagine with Star Wars Bladebuilders. Different hilt? No problem. Multiple blades? Sure. A cross guard? That’s nothing. You can literally do anything you want.
Below, see the first images of Star Wars Bladebuilders, which will launch at New York Toy Fair. Read More »
We’ve seen many photos of Ultron, the main villain in Joss Whedon‘s Avengers: Age of Ultron. We’ve seen him in trailers, we’ve heard him reference Pinocchio, and we’ve seen glimpses of his origin. But until the movie is released, the best way to truly see a character like this is Hot Toys.
The high-end, Hong Kong-based toy company makes the most realistic and detailed collectibles in the world, and they just revealed photos of their Ultron Prime 1/6 scale collectible. You can see a bunch of the Hot Toys Ultron photos below, which give you some great looks at the character that’ll rain hell down on the Avengers come May 1. Read More »
Two big new pieces of Jurassic World info have been revealed Tuesday. First up, a new viral video reveals the character played by Vincent D’Onofrio. His name is Vic Hoskins and he’s the head of InGen’s Private Security division. They’re a security force, funded by the same company as the Jurassic World park, to develop new methods of defense both for international incidents, and for anything bad that may or may not happen at the park.
Also, a new toy image has been revealed that strongly suggests that there’s more than one hybrid dinosaur in the park. (Just remember that you can’t always trust toys.) See the viral video and find out about this new Jurassic World hybrid dinosaur below. Read More »
