It looks like the retail powers to be (the ones with the marketing purse strings) have made the big move from CARS to PLANES … PLANES is now marketing-wise, a world above CARS – CARS, the PLANES Flanker brand if you want to get all details-ugly. With the movie coming out today and the DVD [...]

By the time you read this, the Convoy Brothers are SOLD OUT at the D23 Expo. Well, probably around 10 AM PST. It looks like they only produced 1,000 sets. Making it one of the rarest production CARS of all time. In fact, now tied at #1 with the Apple CAR. You can check out [...]
They're relatively inexpensive, have cute, catchy names, and, thanks to word of mouth, require little if any advertising.
set name: king's castle
the castle has a gate with lowerable fence and drawbridge, towers, a prison, a breakable back wall, a king's throne, a knight's table, a hidden escape door, a weapon rack and flags.
also included an orange brick separator.
minifigs included a king minifig, a white knight minifig, 2 king’s soldier minifigs and 3 dragon soldier minifigs.
overall design is great.
must have for starwars lovers.
Adora BathTime Babies are the perfect doll for the bath, pool, or any water fun. Each BathTime baby comes with its own washcloth and removable animal themed bath robe that shows the swimsuit printed body when it’s taken off. From their tiny little noses to their belly buttons, they are a blend of sweetness and love [...]

IGN has received a sneak peek at DC Collectibles' upcoming Batman: Hush Batman & Catwoman Kiss statue, Super Best Friends Forever statues, a new Shazam figure, and Crime Syndicate figures.
The most eye-catching of these new items might be the Batman: Hush Batman & Catwoman Kiss statue, based on Jim Lee's illustrations in the story arc which premiered a new villain (Hush) while pushing a relationship between Batman and Catwoman. The sculpting on this one is superb, as both Catwoman and Batman (who looks a little disinterested...) came out great, with a cool flapping cape effect. The statue stands approximately 11-inches tall and is slated for a January release with a US$250 list price.
The super-heroines of Super Best Friends Forever --- Batgirl, Supergirl, and Wonder Girl --- are receiving 'new' statues that feature "Super Secret Storage Boxes". The three feature the same sculpts as the SDCC-exclusive versions but seem to include alternate heads as well as a base with a compartment to store them. They're slated to release in December and have a US$25 list price.
The Crime Syndicate is entering DC Collectibles 6.75-inch line with Ultraman, Superwoman, and Power Ring getting figures. The Syndicate is apparently the focus of an upcoming storyline entitled Forever Evil which pits the likes of Lex Luthor, Sinestro, Black Adam, and other villains against the evil parallel-Earth counterparts of the Justice League. They're slated to release in February and will each have a US$25 list price.
Last and, in this instance, also least is a 6.75-inch New 52 Shazam figure. Something looks seriously odd about this one and, unless this is a really bad image, it doesn't seem to be quite up the line's usual standards. He's slated to release in December for US$25.
You know, this is something I definitely wish we had when I was growing up. Back in my day we had Tamagotchi and Digimon little keychain virtual pets, but nothing like this. Looksi Pups is an app that you can get on your iPhone or iPod Touch and raise your own little puppy. They're modeled in 3D so you get a more realistic experience, without actually having to clean up its poop in real life.
The game has moved even more into a realistic sense, as with the help of the Looksi Pups Kennel you'll be able to play games and talk to your puppy in all new ways! Hit the jump to check out what the deal is, and head to their Kickstarter to learn even more!
Displayed at Charticon 2013 was third party Zenith Forge project kit to turn the upcoming Generations Doubledealer into Overlord. Also displayed was a new project to turn the Target exclusive Predacon Darksteel toy into Deathsaurus. See the preview images below for more details on these upgrade kits.
