The toy industry has taken a lot of (well-deserved) heat for the overall lack of female action figures from various toy lines. Even our own Gabbing Geek Jenny eloquently explained why this was monumentally stupid and bad business.
Well, other people noticed too. The folks at the Nerdist did their take on it with female superhero Lady Justice. See the results in a video below the cut. It’s funny and sadly true at the same time. Continue reading Lady Justice!
Say hello to Luke everyone! “Hi LUKE!” Luke loves dinosaurs – and recently was inspired by Jurassic World. So inspired in fact, that he deconstructed his LEGO Millennium Falcon to get enough grey pieces to build the new Indominus Rex from the movie! Now – though we all think the Millennium Falcon should never be deconstructed, because well – it’s the Millennium Falcon! We still have to give props to Luke for being super ingenious and hard core! Awesome replica of the Rex-Raptor hybrid Luke – this scores a win for creativity! Well done!
Our favorite Brotherhood Workshop is at it again. This time, they pull inspiration from the ever popular Jurassic World. Watch as the King of the Dinosaurs faces his greatest challenge yet: a game of catch. Video after the break:

Ahhhhhhh Contra. Remember the wit and will you had to have when taking on this game with it’s never ending stream of goons and flying bullets? In the latest “Teens React” video, the new generation takes on the same challenges, and watching them try to get through the first level is hilarious! Couple of lessons learned right off the bat: that dude running at you will kill you when he touches you, those dots flying toward you will kill you when they touch you, that turret that pops out of the wall will kill you when it touches you, and the most important lesson these kids learn, though, is that like life, Contra is really, really hard. See video after the break:

WOWZERS! Would you look at that! We can all thank Erik Jones for building a castle that makes us think of “once upon a time.” He built it from 50,000 LEGO bricks. Jones–already a LEGO builder–was inspired by taking a close look at Cinderella’s Castle on a visit to the Magic Kingdom at the Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. He took his time designing the castle in LEGO Digital Designer and used original blueprint sketches he found online for the castle before starting to piece it together in January. The finished model of Cinderella’s Castle stands at six and a half feet high and is four and a half feet wide. By the time all 50,000 bricks were clicked into place, Jones estimates he spent $4,500 on supplies. I wonder if I ask my fairy Godmother really nicely, if she’d build something like this for me too! Want to see more pics? Check it out after the break:

There is a serious injustice happening right now in the Toy industry. I’m not talking about how we’ve strayed from making toys indestructible (have you ever tried to break a Lincoln Log?), or how craftsmanship is a thing of the past. Nor am I talking about how most toys now-a-days have some kind of mechanical battery operated mechanism which leaves nothing left for imagination. No – the injustice I speak of is something that’s always been there, yet I’m so damn fed up with it – and that’s gederfication and blatant sexism in the toy industry.

Remember that time in Lord of The Rings where Legolas and Gimli are talking about dying, and they have that very heartfelt moment together – well – The Brotherhood Workshop made their own version of that scene out of LEGOS, and you don’t want to miss Gimli’s reaction to Legolas being…..well…..Legolas.
