Fat Chocobo plush is as huggable as you'd expect

I've been pretty into fat Chocobos (or are they just big chocoboned?) since Brett wrote this thing on getting into MMOs through Final Fantasy XIV: A Realm Reborn. I still likely won't play it, though, and I won't buy this bad...

Have another look at the Pokémon Red Nendoroid

Good Smile Company announced a brand new Pokémon Nendoroid the other day (via Tomopop) based off of Pokémon Origins protagonist Red, but all we really had to go off of back then were fuzzy images of a sign displ...

This Skies of Arcadia statue is zomg worthy

As a collector, I often make up my own rules in regards to where to stop. I usually draw the line at extra merchandise from games outside of those I absolutely adore -- and boy do I adore Skies of Arcadia. This new 17-inch Vy...

Life in plastic, it's fantastic: Skylanders has made 2 billion dollars

Floating placidly in our oceans, far out of sight and out of mind, are near-invisible islands of trash. Plastics and chemical sludge metastasizing. One day, Skylanders toys will float out to the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. ...

These Titanfall figures are nearly as cool as the real thing

Threezero's Titanfall figures are large and in charge. They're also super-detailed and, even for a game that isn't making everyone sing its praises, pretty cool from an action figure standpoint if nothing else. The figures ar...

The next Skylanders borrows a little from the Pokemon series photo
The next Skylanders borrows a little from the Pokemon series
by Hamza CTZ Aziz

The developers at Toys For Bob are back in the saddle with Skylanders Trap Team, the next entry in their hit toys-meet-videogame franchise. This time the hook involves you capturing villains and enslaving brainwashing reforming them to work for you. Same overall formula where you use Skylanders both old and new, but now you have the aid of all the bad guys.

This means a new Portal of Power, plus a whole new set of toys specifically designed for capturing the villains.

Leave it to the talented Kodykoala to come up with something like ... this. Yup, it's Princess Peach riding a Chain Chomp inspired by that Miley Cyrus "Wrecking Ball" music video. It's impressive, if not a little disturbing. ...
