Bandai Mini Classic Voltron Figure

If you were a kid who grew up in the 80s or just a fan of the popular animated series Voltron then you have to check this out. Bandai has released a new mini-figure for pre-order that actually comes with 5 lions to combine into the defender of the universe Voltron or Beast King GoLion as he is known in Japan. Fully combined this figure stands at only approx. 7.1″ tall, but is still highly pose-able and very detailed. The paint scheme on this figure is nice and bright, and very reminiscent of the original animation. This new Voltron figure is going to be part of Bandai’s Shokugan Mini Pla series which means that the figures will have some die-cast in them.

KB Toy Stores Returning

The sad news of Toys “R” Us closing all of it’s stores in North America was just announced last week. Not only do I have some great memories of going to Toys “R” Us as a kid but I also have some amazing memories of going there as an adult with my son. It’s always been a source of fun and excitement in my life and to see it go really does make me sad. However, there is some good news on the horizon for both toy store fans and the 33,000 employees of Toys R Us about to be laid off. Another former toy store giant is planning to make it’s return to North America. KB Toys has been gone for almost 10 year with the last of their stores closing back in 2009. However, plans are currently in the works to open new stores and help out former employees of the closing Toys R Us stores. 

AWESOME Nerf Rival Minigun

This is the Nerf gun to decimate all other Nerf guns. I’ve seen a lot of customized Nerf guns and even plenty of Nerf mini-guns. My son even has one that is just the regular store bought version. However, this is the first time that I have ever seen a back pack, belt fed, Nerf mini-gun. This project comes from the Captain Xavier YouTube channel and is one of the coolest Nerf mods I have ever seen. Not only does this thing look intimidating but it definitely has the ammo capacity to back up that fierce look. Match the fire power and aggressive paint job, with Captain Xavier’s custom body armor and you have one mean looking Nerf player.
