It’s the Christmas season, which means you either love or hate the presence of the holiday comedy Jingle All the Way playing all over TV. The crass, commercial comedy starring Arnold Schwarzenegger and Sinbad desperately trying to get their hands on the popular fictional toy known as Turbo Man is goofy, slapsticky and just plain bad. But I still watch it every year and enjoy the hell out of it. I always laugh every time Schwarzenegger says, “Who told you you could eat my cookies?”
If you’re a fan of the movie and you’ve always wanted your own Turbo Man just for the hell of it, a new Kickstarter wants to make that possible. It’s a little pricey if you really want it to be Turbo Time at your house, but it just might be worth it. Find out details after the jump. Read More »

The little ball droid was one of the hottest Christmas gifts, and he’s one of the cutest robots the Star Wars galaxy has ever seen.

The LEGO Death Star is one of the biggest playsets offered by the Danish building block company. The Star Wars set was actually discontinued last year, only to be re-released this year with some slight modifications that added 200 pieces and three minifigures that weren’t in the original set.
With 4,016 pieces, it’s a massive undertaking to build this set, let along paying $499.99 to actually purchase it from LEGO. But what if you could come close to the satisfaction of putting it together by watching a smooth time lapse video showing how it all comes together? Thankfully, one LEGO Star Wars fan and master builder has done just that, and you can watch it below. Read More »

We’ll find out next year what, exactly, the Stranger Things creators mean when they promise “justice for Barb,” but until then, fans can take comfort in knowing Nancy isn’t the only one who cared about her.
