    Even casual fans of the Wu-Tang Clan know that they prefer Voltron to the Autobots and Decepticons, but that hasn’t stopped BAIT from bringing them together with the latter in a new line of BAIT Wu-Tang Transformers for this year’s upcoming San Diego Comic-Con. The BAIT Wu-Tang Transformers feature four Transformers with the Wu-Tang logo in […]

  • Creepy Crawlers Feature Film on the Way

    Creepy Crawlers Feature Film on the Way

    I generally don’t like to report movie news on here, because there’s so much of it and God knows I don’t want to add to the deluge. But a recent Variety report is just too weird for me to pass up. The report says that Paramount has acquired film rights for Creepy Crawlers, the DIY toy molds […]

  • Not Gonna Happen Coin: For Those Difficult Easy Decisions

    Not Gonna Happen Coin: For Those Difficult Easy Decisions

    You know how sometimes you know the right answer to a question, but you have to ask somebody else in order to solidify it in your mind? Questions like, “should I do laundry today or keep watching House? Even though it’s technically possible for me to do both?” For these situations in life, there is now […]

  • Kobra-1 Foam Dart Blaster: A Nerf Gun Alternative for Adults

    Kobra-1 Foam Dart Blaster: A Nerf Gun Alternative for Adults

    I’ll never forget the humiliation I felt when I was ejected from the Reform Club in London. I smuggled in a standard Nerf blaster and fired several darts at my cohorts, only to be treated like some kind of an idiot in response. If only I’d had the Kobra-1 Foam Dart Blaster back then. The Kobra-1 is […]

    As fictional universes go, the one depicted across all the feature films, comic books, TV series, and video games included in the Star Wars franchise is probably home to the most collectible memorabilia (sorry, Riverworld fans). So it’s pretty big news that Neat Stuff Collectibles and eBay have teamed up to unveil what they’re calling the Rare Star Wars Collection, […]

    ‘Stretch Armstrong and the Flex Fighters’ Coming to Netflix (Trailer)

    Stretch Armstrong has been around for decades, but it’s been a while since anyone has heard from him. It seems he’s coming back to Netflix (an always popular way for half-forgotten characters to make their returns), but he’s now a teenaged superhero with a few superpowered teenaged friends. The name of the series is Stretch […]

  • Hot Toys Anakin Skywalker: Arguably Too Realistic

    Hot Toys Anakin Skywalker: Arguably Too Realistic

    Anakin Skywalker, the original moral relativist, is appropriately enough now the subject of a new figure from Hot Toys that some people will find creepily realistic, while others will proudly display on their mantel – or wherever it is they keep their action figures. And besides, it’s not like Star Wars fans have a ton […]
