When a young girl enters the Princess phase, there is only one thing to do: drag your feet while kicking and screaming. I might mean that metaphorically, I might not. Either way, I’m looking to find that magical word – moderation – when balancing her interests while reminding her of the big wide world beyond [...]

I may never have seen Dreamworks' How to Train Your Dragon or know much about their character, Toothless, but I certainly appreciate a good, handmade plush. Nooby-banana over at deviantART not only skillfully crafted her own Toothless plush but is helping others do the same by providing a pattern and tutorial. The pattern is broken into six parts (the link to the six's pattern doesn't work but you can find it in her gallery here). It looks like a lot of people have made their own plushes using this patterns with great results. Oh and I should mention, this Toothless will end up being 3 feet long with a 3 and a half foot wingspan. Yeah, he's a biggie.
I don't know about you but I suddenly feel the itch to fire up my sewing machine. Are any of you, dear readers, interested in trying out this pattern?
Tomy, the maker of the Chuggington StackTrack Railway System, set a Guinness World Records title for Tallest Toy Train Track on Saturday. The record-setting train track, constructed with Chuggington StackTrack—a durable die-cast railway system that enables kids to build vertical toy train layouts—towered 17 feet 4 inches tall. In order to set the Guinness World Records [...]

Continuing the moratorium against the new Iron Man 3 figures, I decided to go back and pick up another of the action figures released under the Concept Series segment in the Iron Man 2 collection by Hasbro.
Thanks to the Taobao seller who has posted an online auction with some first looks at images of the Transformers Generations Dreadwing Deluxe Class action figure. The figure is coming to us a redux of the Megatron figure mold with a new head. Like the other new Generations toy, the Dreadwing figure takes a page from IDW's Robots in Disguise issue #17 comic book and the original Generation 2 Dreadwing action figures for this all new version. Check out the image of the Transformers Generations Dreadwing Deluxe Class Test Shot now.
Finally! Thanks to the TFC Toys page who have posted our first first good look at the COMPLETE Uranos Not Superion combined in full color. We've been looking at a lot of prototypes of the team member toys. So its really nice to finally see the whole set combined in full color with the gestalt head on. Check out the color images of the TFC Toys Uranos showing the Completed Ultimate Combiner Team for more details.
The latest Tenacious Toys Super Series Sundays release is out, and it's a series of custom 3-inch Androids from Teru Fujita. The initial appearance of the figure is that of a regular DIY Android, so there has to be something hidden inside, right? That would be correct: if you press a little button on the back of the Android, the head lifts up and reveals a sculpted robot head underneath with LED-illuminated eyes. The mechanism is spring-loaded, according to Tenacious Toys, so when you take your finger off the button, the head goes back down and the eyes turn off. It does require a large button battery to illuminate the eyes, and you can see in the photos that the battery is hidden inside one of the Android's legs.
If you want one for yourself, there's eight of these little guys up in the Tenacious Toys store for US$200 each. Yeah, not cheap for a custom, but do keep in mind that a.) they're a very limited run and b.) there's a ton of mechanical components that go into creating these little guys. We've put a few videos after the jump if you want to see how they work for yourself; I'm quite impressed with the mechanical aspects of this custom figure!

Golden Week is a week in Japan where there are many national holidays celebrated. This year, it was observed from April 29 to May 5. Many Japanese people have the whole week off of work to rest or travel. Tons of people take vacations and travel; this tends to book all the hotels up. Popular tourist spots in the U.S. like Hawaii and Los Angeles even see increased tourism during these times of the year. (If you want to read more, you can always check out Wikipedia on the subject of Golden Week.)
So what are figurine collectors doing during Golden Week? Well, as much as we all would love to take a week off of work and play, Golden Week is not exactly an international holiday. Still, thanks to the many collectors submitting photos to GSC's English Facebook page, I pulled together a cute gallery of figurines eating, resting, and doing other things while enjoying their very own Golden Week! There are a bunch of must-see photos in the gallery, so check it out.
