Ha, ThinkGeek is doing a Proto Man Buster replica too

Back in 2014, ThinkGeek unleashed a Mega Buster replica out into the world for $80, that has since been cut to $50. It was a little to silly and unwieldy for my tastes, but I imagine someone's son or daughter is having the time of their lif...   read

Fangamer is taking pre-orders on these Undertale figures

Skylanders Imaginators, the newest game in the series, is basically Diablo

Activision is in a unique position at this point. It basically started the video game toys-to-life market, and now, a major competitor has pulled out entirely. If it was worried before, it's less worried now. It's just as well as the compan...   read
