Garden gnomes were never exactly a trendy addition to any home, but if you must fill your garden with tiny ceramic characters, at least go with this 17-inch-tall R2-D2 statue instead of a bunch of creepy trolls.
Last year ThinkGeek created a fake version of Clue featuring characters and locales from Game of Thrones for April Fools’ Day. It was a fun prank but also a damn good idea. Which is probably why over a year later there’s now an official version of Game of Thrones Clue that lets players figure out who in Westeros is a…
This has to be one of the most recursive comic book announcements I’ve seen in a long time. Marvel has announced that it is bringing the insanely popular line of cutesy Marvel Tsum Tsum plush toys to its comics universe for a four-part miniseries. Let that just sink in for a moment... because what the what.
You’ll get a lot more respect from other cosplayers when you can confidently say you built your own props. But for those us lacking the requisite skills to do so, Anovos has a new build-it-yourself Ghostbusters Proton Pack kit up for pre-order that ensures your results will still look movie-accurate—and not like a…

Staring at a lava lamp is a mesmerizing experience, even for those who haven’t taken anything to free their minds. But this Star Wars-themed lava lamp replaces those floating blobs of goo with glitter shaped like tiny X-wings and TIE Fighters, creating a never-ending space battle you can stare at forever.
A couple of mirrors, a cardboard tube, and a bunch of random crap. That’s what’s behind the mind-twisting magic of a kaleidoscope. And when we say random crap, we literally mean that. There’s no real method for designing the end cap of a kaleidoscope—the creators just add whatever they want. Some objects are glued…
Remember that part in the new Snowden trailer, where Ed sneaks data out of the NSA by hiding a memory card in a Rubik’s cube? Has to be bullshit, right?
The comparison with the official 2014 Star Destroyer in the foreground shows how awesome and big this custom ship really is. Doomhandle’s ISD Tyrant is so massive, he was able to fit a hangar bay, multiple ships, and three levels of various rooms inside.
Twenty-two years before WALL·E’s sermon about over-consumption hit theaters, an even better movie robot had already saved the day. Every child of the ‘80s wanted Short Circuit’s Johnny Five as their best friend, and now that we’re all grown up, that might actually come true with a little help from Lego.
Seeing the perspective of a toy train is way, way more fun than it should be. About 160 feet of Lego train tracks were laid out around this guy’s house, through the inside of home, next to his pets, and beyond. The tracks went outside too, winding all over his garden in the front yard, under the wooden fence, and onto…
As the weather gets nicer, it’s time to finally pause The Force Awakens and head outside for some fresh air and sunshine. That doesn’t mean you have to abandon Star Wars altogether. Not when ThinkGeek’s just revealed a wonderful kite collection full of X-Wings, Death Stars, and Droids.
An unknown breakthrough in consumer levitation technology has led to an influx of floating speakers that don’t sound any different, but look kinda cool—were this the mid-’80s. Before you write them off completely, someone has managed to find a way to make these novelties genuinely worthy of your desk space, as a tiny …
Matthew Reinhart and Emiliano Santalucia have created what is easily the most impressively engineered pop-up book you’ll ever see. Commemorating the 30th anniversary of the iconic Transformers toy line, it not only features pop-up paper versions of Autobots and Decepticons, but many of them also completely transform.
In pursuit of their plans for utter world domination, Funko has revealed their next acquisition in their Pop! Vinyl line: the new Ghostbusters.
Even the most basic yo-yo tricks depend on the toy’s ability to keep on spinning. But why does it spin so fast for so long?
Master toy customizer Sam Kwok has turned Hot Toys’ sixth-scale Starboost Iron Man XXXIX figure into what Toy Story’s Buzz Lightyear would almost certainly look like in real life. If Tony Stark ever started doing children’s birthday parties, this is definitely the armor he should wear.
If you find yourself in trouble you can always use your phone to dial 911. Or you can reach for this compact 3D-printed lens that turns your smartphone’s camera flash into the Bat-Signal, summoning someone who can help but who also has a way cooler car than the police do.
