This unnamed hex-walker robot is radio (or at least infrared) controlled, fires 3-types of projectiles, and has blast-damage armor that falls off when hit. I want one, no, I NEED one of these. Seriously, this looks like an awesome toy. Beyond that, the (inexpensive?) hexapod platform looks to have great hacking potential for hobbyists. I […]
Let me start off by saying that I am a huge Transformers fan, always have been. The current line of Transformers “Generations” action figures are great models that resemble the robots they portray, and they transform easily. But the movie-themed action figures? Intricate and horribly complex to transform.
Lego’s Fire Brigade is the oldest of their current line of modular buildings. The model is built from 2231 pieces, and I’m told that the construction is challenging and highly enjoyable. The Fire Brigade features a 1930’s-style fire truck, 4 minifigures, a fire-dog (a Dalmatian would have been cooler), and tons of great details. The completed model […]

The Supercar includes a Power Functions motor, although I cannot quite figure out exactly which functions it is used to control. I’m […]
You may look at this puny wireless remote helicopter and scoff at its size. But don’t let that fool you – the Syma S107 may be small, but it’s a LOT of fun. The Syma S107 charges in 45-50 minutes via the controller or USB, and this gives you about 8 minutes of runtime. Let […]
Nerf’s limited time special edition clear-plastic dart blasters are back! Usually these clear versions are only released for a short time and can be difficult to find. This time, it looks like the clear blasters are available pretty much everywhere at or near their normal prices. Nerf Clear Blasters via Amazon Product Info
Lego’s Shuttle Adventure is completely and utterly fantastic. NASA is expecting to formally end the space shuttle program in February 2011, so Lego sought to commemorate the even with this model. At 1204 pieces, I was able to put my the shuttle model together in two nights.
