Welcome back to Toy Aisle, io9's regular roundup of the toys most likely to threaten our personal savings this week. We’ve got even more Star Wars, a wonderfully specific Spider-Man, and honestly, the world’s most adorable Godzilla action figure. Check it out!
If you’re looking for an actual droid companion to keep you company and respond to your every command, Sphero’s BB-8 and BB-9E interactive toys are a better option. But if screen accurate detailing is your top priority, then Hot Toys once again delivers with these 1/6-scale rolling droids. Featuring weathered paint jobs, a self-balancing mechanism, and light-up LEDs in their magnetically-attached heads, these four-inch tall droids will set you back a few hundred bucks for the pair when available sometime next year.

You can turn anything from the excellent Batman: The Animated Series into a toy or collectible and we’ll hand over our wallets faster than when threatened with the Joker’s latest toxic laughing gas. The series had one of the best Batmobiles we’ve ever seen, but the Jokermobile is a close second for our ideal daily commuter. This nine-inch version features a light-up smile and can accommodate all of the new Batman TAS figures now available. You won’t be able to get one until May of next year, though, and you’ll have to cough up $100 for the privilege. [Toyark]
If you weren’t able to scrape together $800 before Lego’s giant 7,541-Piece Millennium Falcon completely sold out, here’s a decent consolation prize. Bandai Hobby’s new 1/72-scale Millennium Falcon model looks like a prop used to film the original Star Wars trilogy, and it will only set you back $400. It will be available later this year, but you can grab the Falcon early if you’re heading to New York Comic-Con in early October. Just keep in mind you’ll have 700 tiny parts to assemble, and even more painting to do.
Kotobukiua’s line of statues is getting a delightful exclusive for New York Comic Con this year: a cheeky representation of a look Spider-Man wears in Amazing Spider-Man #615, answering the time old question of “Wouldn’t Spider-Man get really goddamn cold in that skintight spandex during the winter?” Reader, the answer is yes. Spidey dons his winter warmers (the hat and scarf of which are removable) while investigating a mystery in South Bronx during a snowy night in the comics, and now it’s a delightful statue of the webslinger that comes with a magnetized, snow-covered base to pose him on, too. The $65 statue is available to preorder ahead of the con right now.
The Godzilla movies have given us so many absurd and wonderful iterations on the King of All Kaiju over the years, but rarely do they match Space Godzilla from the 1994 classic for silliness. Look at those giant spiky, electrified shoulders! Amazing. Figuarts’ latest MonsterArts figure features a new mid-battle paint app for this web exclusive version. But, even better: Space Godzilla comes with a smaller, 3.75" inch tall version of the ridiculously adorable Little Godzilla from the film too! So sweet. [Toyark]
If you’ve convinced yourself you’re going to love the new Star Trek: Discovery series before the first episode even airs, then here’s a head start on your upcoming Halloween/comic convention costume. ThinkGeek’s already selling the series’ insignia badges, and for $15 each you can accurately cosplay as a command, medical, operations, or science officer. They’re held in place using a magnetic backing you hide under your shirt, and might be worth picking up for novelty’s sake, in case Discovery lasts as long as Enterprise did. [ThinkGeek]
