Beautiful LEGO

Most of our LEGO constructions consisted of poorly designed cars and houses severely lacking in windows. Mike Doyle and the other artists featured in "Beautiful LEGO" have gone far beyond that. The book features 400 photos of work from over 70 artists who use the classic toy brick as their medium. Inside the 280-page ... continue reading

Toy Boarders Snowboarders

Toy Boarders serve no functional purpose, but that doesn't make them any less cool. Made in the style of the traditional Army Men that most of us grew up using as support for Transformers, TMNT and GI Joes in the great Barbie Wars, Toy Boarders ditch the traditional poses and guns for more peaceful extreme sports. ... continue reading

LEGO “You Design It, We Create It” Winner

We've crafted some serious crap with our LEGO bricks. Basically anything we've made you should put quotation marks around, like a "car" or a "castle," mainly because they look nothing like what we were going for. For Egor Karshiev - the winner of LEGO's "You Design It, We Create It" contest - this couldn't be further ... continue reading

Lego Architecture Studio

Classifying the brand spanking new Lego Architecture Studio is difficult. On one hand, a kid will inevitably steal it from his father, rebuild it into something far more epic than what Dad created and find out his dream is to become an architect. Eventually he'll have a sitcom on tv and become friends with Bob Sagat. ... continue reading

Unfortunately, you can't have it until August 1 (unless you happen to be at Comic Con right now), but on that day it ... continue reading

LEGO Cars from 80s Shows & Movies

Back in the 80's, the only things we were building with LEGO bricks were cars that looked like giant boxes on wheels. If our rides actually existed, people would be hitting overpasses, bumping into people in other lanes, and having to deal with a multitude of blind spots whenever they were behind the wheel. We prefer ... continue reading

Hot Wheels Retro Entertainment Series

Somewhere in a plastic bin tucked in the corner of our attic is our set of Hot Wheels. They haven't seen the light of day since we were slamming juice boxes and Fruit Roll-Ups and, frankly, we might as well sell them at a garage sale. Of course, we'd use the money we make off them to buy these. The new Hot Wheels Retro ... continue reading

Custom Classic Movie Action Figures

Somewhere there is a box in an attic that contains a vast array of action figures we beat up in our youth. There are Stormtroopers missing limbs, G.I. Joes covered in marker and a bunch of other toys we can't even recall the origins of. We miss all of them. For the toy-lover in all of us, there's these Custom Classic ... continue reading

The Porsche 917 Le Mans Raceway

This is not the toy racetrack you had when you were a kid. There are not Hot Wheels getting launched across some yellow plastic, flying off the tracks and striking your little sister in the face. This is the toy racetrack for adults. The Porsche 917 Le Mans Raceway may cost more than any car you've ever owned, but ... continue reading

LEGO Table Lamp

Even if your vehicles looked like rectangles on wheels and your feet are still scarred from not being extra careful while walking through your game room, LEGO bricks were awesome. When placed in the hands of an expert, they can even become functioning home goods. These table lamps made by Sean Kenney, are both works ... continue reading

Bandit Guns – Rubber Band Shotgun

We're pretty sure we'll never reach an age when toy guns won't still be fun. Better than ones that make futuristic sound effects are ones that actually shoot something, like rubber bands. Bandit Guns are rubber band shotguns that use pump action to fire in a variety of different ways. Shoot one band at a time, hold ... continue reading
