All the Amazing New Star Wars Toys From Toy Fair All the Amazing New Star Wars Toys From Toy Fair

There is a new Star Wars movie just months away, which means, it’s time for new Star Wars merchandise. Oh, who am I kidding? It’s very clearly always the time for new Star Wars merchandise. Here’s the latest from The Last Jedi, Solo, and all the other Star Wars goodness Hasbro showed at Toy Fair this year.

Here’s what’s coming from Hasbro when it comes to Marvel, from Ant-Man & The Wasp to a Marvel movie anniversary celebration, to, yes... lots more Deadpool. So much Deadpool.

Rocket League is a Lot Easier When You're Playing It In Real Life

Rocket League seems like a game that wouldn’t translate well to real life. It’s super intense, with cars that seem to defy physics and balls that explode. But the real-life version we had the chance to play at Toy Fair in New York this weekend is just as fun, while being a lot easier to master.

Hasbro Is Getting Into Crowdfunding With an Insane Star Wars Toy Hasbro Is Getting Into Crowdfunding With an Insane Star Wars Toy

Today, Hasbro unveiled Haslab, which promises to basically be the toymaker’s answer to Kickstarter, for diehard fans of its toys. The new crowdsourcing program is kicking off with one hell of a project: a 4-foot long, 14lbs intricate recreation of Jabba’s Sail Barge from Return of the Jedi.

The Next Power Rangers Series Is Adapting Super Sentai's Own Homage to... Power Rangers? The Next Power Rangers Series Is Adapting Super Sentai's Own Homage to... Power Rangers?

In the 25 years since Power Rangers first began, it’s only skipped adapting the current Super Sentai series three times. Now, for its 2019 season, Power Rangers is going back and bringing one of them to western audiences: Tokumei Sentai Go-Busters.

Crayola's New Pen Writes On Any Surface Using Melted Crayons as Ink Crayola's New Pen Writes On Any Surface Using Melted Crayons as Ink

Working in a similar fashion to 3D-printing pens, but without the futile exasperation of actually trying to make 3D objects, Crayola’s new Crayon Melter turns colorful sticks of wax into a thick, goopy, ink that lets kids write on almost any surface imaginable. Can you hear the sound of parents crying in the distance?

Iron Man's Hulkbuster Suit Is Getting the Giant Lego Set It Deserves Iron Man's Hulkbuster Suit Is Getting the Giant Lego Set It Deserves

When the Hulkbuster made its grand debut in Age of Ultron, Lego gave us a cool, but kinda tiny version of Stark’s most impressive suit. Now, ahead of the Hulkbuster’s return in Infinity War, Lego’s knocking it up another notch with a lavish, 9-inch-tall brick behemoth.

Hasbro Says It Will 'Reset the Future Directon' of the Transformers Movies After Bumblebee Hasbro Says It Will 'Reset the Future Directon' of the Transformers Movies After Bumblebee

Last November, Hasbro announced a new deal with Paramount to create a range of movies based on its toy properties. On top of that, the deal will see the further expansion of the Transformers movie universe, starting with this year’s Bumblebee spinoff. But after that, the future of the Transformers saga could be in for…

Jurassic Park Would Have Been an Even Bigger Hit If All the Dinosaurs Were Also Cars Jurassic Park Would Have Been an Even Bigger Hit If All the Dinosaurs Were Also Cars

It’s probably greedy to stop and wonder what could make a movie like Jurassic Park—which made over a billion dollars at the box office—even more profitable. But then Hot Wheels went and revealed a new line of half-truck-half-dinosaur character cars for Jurassic World: Fallen Kingdom, and suddenly a whole new avenue of…

Your Kid Can Now Live Out My Dino-Riding Fantasy Your Kid Can Now Live Out My Dino-Riding Fantasy

Jurassic Park didn’t exactly tone down its violence and make its dino-stars seem like friendly petting zoo fodder, but that didn’t stop a part of me from fantasizing about one day riding a velociraptor like a mighty stallion. A fantasy that, thanks to Fisher-Price, can now be a reality for kids with this Power Wheels…

I Love Watching These Self-Balancing Boxing Robots Beat Each Other Into Submission I Love Watching These Self-Balancing Boxing Robots Beat Each Other Into Submission

The self-balancing technology that powered the overhyped disappointment that was the Segway is finally living up to its full potential with Hexbug’s new VEX Battling Boxing Robots line. You can not only build a pair of robo-pugilists that ride around on hoverboards, you can also fight them using motion controls to…

After 25-Year Run, Bandai America Gives Up Power Rangers Toys to Hasbro After 25-Year Run, Bandai America Gives Up Power Rangers Toys to Hasbro

Whenever you think about Power Rangers, chances are you think about the American adaptation of the Japanese live-action kids series Super Sentai, a show about brightly colored spandex superheroes dramatically flipping away from pyrotechnics. But the toys based on the various TV series are just as important to the…

A Toy Design Actually Forced a Change to Star Wars: The Last Jedi A Toy Design Actually Forced a Change to Star Wars: The Last Jedi

Star Wars and toys have gone hand in hand ever since the franchise kicked off four decades ago. But usually, it’s the movies dictating what we see on store shelves—not the other way around. But in one particularly odd case, it ended up being that way for The Last Jedi.

These New Harry Potter Wands Let You Play a Magic Version of Laser Tag These New Harry Potter Wands Let You Play a Magic Version of Laser Tag

It’s all but impossible to reach the end of the Harry Potter books or movies without secretly pining for a wand of your own, but it’s probably best for humanity that we’re not all flailing magical sticks around. The next best thing would be JAKKS Pacific’s new interactive Wizard Training Wands that make it feel like…

Lego's New Hogwarts Great Hall Set Is Going to Magically Drain My Wallet Lego's New Hogwarts Great Hall Set Is Going to Magically Drain My Wallet

This isn’t Lego’s first attempt at miniaturizing Harry Potter’s Hogwarts Castle (it’s at least the sixth) and at 878-pieces it’s not the largest version either. But somehow the new Hogwarts Great Hall set stands several Hagrids above all the previous versions by recreating, in wonderful detail, one of the franchise’s…

The Joker Gets a Truly Disturbing Bust Designed by Horror Master Rick Baker The Joker Gets a Truly Disturbing Bust Designed by Horror Master Rick Baker

Rick Baker is a master Hollywood effect artist, one who apparently really likes the Joker. A few years back, he dressed up most of his family as different versions of the Clown Prince of Crime. Now he’s created a 3D iteration of Jack Napier for DC Collectibles who looks most unwell.

These New Transformers Cyberverse Figures Are Fantastic Callbacks to the Original '80s Toys These New Transformers Cyberverse Figures Are Fantastic Callbacks to the Original '80s Toys

The Transformers have been reborn again and again since the toys first hit America in 1984, including appearances in several animated series. But if you grew up with the original toys, and were left confused and disappointed when Optimus Prime was turned into a gorilla, the toys from the latest series, Transformers…

A new Star Wars film is rapidly approaching us—which means that a whole wave of toys and merchandise is approaching us even faster, ready to bring all the characters and moments of Solo: A Star Wars Story into plastic things you can buy.
