This Awesome Pacific Rim Kaiju Can Carry Your Jaeger Toys To Their Doom

Otachi is basically the Batman of NECA’s Pacific Rim toy line at this point. The Kaiju beastie ranks up there with main star Gipsy Danger for variant toys, but only one comes with a feature for it to grab other mech toys and carry them up to their rapid-descent death. That’s pretty damn cool. » 5/19/15 9:30am Tuesday 9:30am

The Original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Design Comes To Life As A Toy

Back when Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird first laid out their plans for what would become the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Eastman sketched out a slightly dopey, nunchaku-wielding turtle on a napkin.

A Star Wars Toy Calendar Filled With Reminders To Buy New Star Wars Toys

Star Wars’ relationship with Toys has long been an intrinsic part of the franchise’s history. But there’s something about a Calendar filled with adverts for toys old and new, while also at the same time constantly reminding you when you can go out and buy new toys, that is baffling to comprehend. » 5/13/15 2:00pm 5/13/15 2:00pm

Alas, not even a cape can make me become a fan of these DC retro figures. » 5/12/15 5:00pm 5/12/15 5:00pm
