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...

Revol Mini Solid Snake figure packs a smaller punch

Solid Snake has never been this adorable. Well, I don't know if the new Revoltech line, Revol Mini, qualifies as adorable, but this particular figure cuts it for me. The Solid Snake Revol Mini figure comes packing excellent d...

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.

Princess Peach is coming in like a wrecking ball

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. ...

Nendoroid Link is just the cutest little adventurer

Pre-orders have opened for Good Smile Company's positively adorable Nendoroid Link ahead of the figure's scheduled late-August release this year and I need this. The design is based on Link's appearance in The Legend of Zelda...

Gaming Heads' Doom diorama is droolworthy

Gaming Heads is taking pre-orders for its new Doom diorama based on the game's iconic box art. The polystone statue is 12.5 inches tall by 17 inches wide and, okay, I'll stop stalling -- this thing is unsurprisingly not cheap...

New Dragon's Crown figure turns the Amazon into a pole dancer

There's a new Dragon's Crown Amazon figure coming courtesy of Empty and it's some how more fan service-y than the Sorceress. She's straight up pole dancing on her axe for no reason. You can find more shots here. It's better t...

They're finally selling real-life Mario Karts

To be a kid again. Or, a 70-pound adult. That's what it'll take to enjoy the Super Mario Kart Ride-On Vehicle, available in March at Toys"R"Us for $199.99. The kart has working pedals, can go in reverse, and there are tires for on-and off-road use. Most important of all, this thing plays sounds from Mario Kart. Hot damn! I want to see videos of some kids' years being made. [Via Tiny Cartridge]
