All right, so you will need additional power for it to work on water. Mattel is finally going to deliver a Hoverboard and the future will be in your hands. If only it actually worked. The Back to the Future 2 Hoverboard is available for pre-order March 1st through the 20th on MattyCollector.
Let your geek light really shine with one or both of these designer drives by Mimobot. It’s practical, cool, and clearly not a toy. It just happens to be a great reminder of one.
The rest of the world has pint glasses featuring their favorite teams. Isn’t time we have pint glasses featuring the Doctor? The Doctor Who glasses are by Bif Bang Pow and arrive before the end of time (no release date yet).
We don’t see too many kids actually using the Freddy Puppet from A Nightmare on Elm Street 3: Dream Warriors as toy. We do see the Freddy Puppet getting promptly displayed around the home every Halloween starting this fall. The Freddy Puppet is available from NECA in September.
Here is a great way to display the head of your favorite “Merc with a Mouth” and actually use it for something too. Look for the Dead Pool Pencil Cup from Diamond Select Toys this spring.
Kotobukiya took their Han in Carbonite and R2D2 ice molds and applied it to several other great properties. The Alien Egg Pod looks great and a perfect thing to make some fun Easter candy out of. These are available now to order at Entertainment Earth.
Kotobukiya has yet another incredible statue coming in the 3rd quarter of 2012. Here is the prototype for the Batman The Dark Knight Rises ARTFX statue.
It doesn’t seem completely practical and it will take up some shelf space. Come on though, you have to admit turning the screw driver into the eye of the zombie is a great way to get your Blu-rays out. The design by McFarlane Toys is incredible, let us just hope the second season has an ending that warrants such a case.
This one could be technically called a toy if we only we couldn’t think of 100 other fun uses for it. Jakks Pacific has an incredible line of SpyNet gear (see link) and their new Ultra-Vision Glasses seem to be the crème de la crème. They can record 20 minutes of video. Have multiple vision settings and allow you to see 50 feet. All in the price range of $59.99 to $69.99!
It seems as if ninjas will be the key factor in GI Joe: Retaliation. The figures look great but it was this hooded sweatshirt and messenger bag that immediately caught our attention. We’ve always wanted Arashikage Clan gear and this year we are going to get it.
