Star Wars Rebels: video and LEGO sets spill the beans

Star Wars Rebels: video and LEGO sets spill the beans

This week the first look we've had up close and personal with the creators and the artwork behind Star Wars Rebels is close at hand. What we're seeing here is a preview for the animated show that'll take place between the 3rd and 4th Star Wars movies. That is to say - making a bridge between the prequel trilogy and the classic, original trilogy with storyline.

Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark leaked: not a movie tie-in

The next big Transformers game for Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, Nintendo 3DS (strangely), and Wii U has been leaked - it goes by the name of Transformers: Rise of the Dark Spark, and it's apparently not just a movie tie-in. While it is possible that this is a follow-up to the "War For Cybertron" follow-up game, rumor has it that this game will not be tied directly to the plot line for the upcoming Transformers film, Transformers: Age of Extinction.

UPDATE: Now made official! Have a peek at the trailer below!

The LEGO Movie Review

The LEGO Movie Review

I took my 3-year-old daughter to The LEGO Movie this week and she sat through the entire 100-minute film in quiet reverence. End of review. I'm an adult male who grew up with LEGO and, with my daughter, continue to play with and enjoy the creative building toy today - and I was entertained by the movie from start to finish. My daughter and I are two of the types of audience members the creators of this movie appear to have aimed for directly.

Disney Google Play exclusive Mickey take takes on “Vinylmation”

There's a kind of stop-motion animation* called "vinylmation" right this minute, if you did not know, using vinyl toys as the models and just as simple a stop-motion technique as you like. While we've seen everything from Ninja Turtle Legos to Star Wars figures snapped in this bit of creational sway, today Disney lets loose a trailer for a short called "Blank: A Vinylmation Love Story" featuring a couple of rather plain-looking mice.

Michael Bay’s TMNT toys: Ninja Turtles get grungy

Michael Bay’s TMNT toys: Ninja Turtles get grungy

It would seem that the poster we saw back on the 30th - and subsequently were asked by Paramount to take down - may have been sitting right next to some brand new Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles toys as well. What we're seeing today is a single image which depicts three of the Michael Bay film-headed mutants in all their tiny glory. Here we've got Raphael looking rather bulky, Donatello looking a bit more lean than in previous iterations, and Michelangelo keeping with the "coolest member of the team" theme through a retro grunge style.

LEGO Sherlock, BTTF DeLorean and VF-1 Mecha under fan kit consideration

Sherlock Holmes reboots haven't been in short supply, but few have caught the public imagination like the BBC's Sherlock, and the moody series - just ending its third season - may be immortalized in a new LEGO set. The kit - which would include the pieces to build a version of Holmes' 221B Baker Street home, along with minifigs of Sherlock himself, John Watson, Moriarty and more - is one of LEGO's six Winter 2014 LEGO Review contenders, along with a large-scale model of the time-traveling DeLorean from Back to the Future, and the transforming VF-1 Valkyrie mecha from anime Space Fortress Macross.

Sabertron swords keep score as you fight with friends

Sabertron swords keep score as you fight with friends

I can't count the number of faux sword fights I've been in over the years. My son has a couple of toy light sabers and we occasionally have duels around the house even today. The problem is that someone always insists that they got the other and no one wants to admit they were hit. A company called Sabertron has announced a slick sword fighting system that kids and adults alike will appreciate.
