This Ceramic Xenomorph Cookie Jar Is Hugging Itself

aliens_cookie_jar_1

Why? Why is the Xenomorph Cookie Jar hugging itself? We don’t know and it probably doesn’t matter, but you kind of try to make an article with more than 20 words, so what else are you going to talk about? It’s a cookie jar. It’s made of ceramic. It looks freaking badass, and considering we’ve recently been flooded with Star Wars stuff, we’re happy it’s not that. It’s the work of sculptor Paul Harding, and yes, it’s an officially licensed Aliens product. It’s $45.

LEGO Hoping To Cash In On New Ghostbusters’ Action

ghostbusters-1

So you might have heard: there’s a new Ghostbusters movie on the way. Those of you who grew up in the 80’s will probably smile at this retro reboot, and LEGO thinks they can cash in by selling you a brand new set. They’ll be releasing the ECTO-1 car and ECTO-2 motorbike sets, complete with characters and gear on July 1st, two weeks before the movie hits theatres. There aren’t any real spoilers in their contents, except maybe the presence of a new Red Deamon character; it’s not like anyone expected the exact same cast to be present this time around. It’ll be $60 for the set.

This DeLorean Actually Floats

1_20-Magnetic-Floating-DeLorean-Time-Machine-by-Kids-Logic-Featured-image-672x372

Back To The Future day is now forever behind us, but the movie’s spirit and magic lives on. So we wouldn’t be surprised to see this 1/20 scale floating DeLorean sell out rather quickly. It’s an officially licensed collectible that uses an array of magnets to float above its base.

– Officially Licensed by Universal Studios
– Delorean Time Machine Back to the Future Part II.
– Scale: 1/20
– Length: about 22cm
– Levitating Time Machine with Magnetic Floating Base
– Openable doors and movable wheels
– Changeable wheels (two sets) for normal scene and flying scene.
– Flame effect parts included
– 2 Bases: Magnetic Floating Base and Display Base
– More than 10 LED light-up features
– Magnetic Floating Base comes with light up function

Of course, whenever you see the word ‘collectible’, you know you have to prepare for a hefty price tag. This toy is no exception, since you’ll have to pony up $195 as a pre-order to get yours. And then wait until Q2 2016 to actually get it.

Pepsi Is Releasing A Limited Edition ‘Pepsi Perfect’, The Soda from BTTF II

pepsi-perfect-2

In a few short days, October 21st 2015 will arrive. That happens to be the day Marty McFly arrived in the “future”, where he was welcomed with a laundry list of then-futuristic innovations that mostly failed to come to market. Except of course for those that didn’t, because of a marketing tie-in from some clever company. This time it’s Pepsi, and they’re releasing a very limited edition of Pepsi Perfect, the soda you see in one of the scenes in the movie.

Fans located in the U.S. can get their hands on 1 of 6,500 Pepsi Perfect bottles, each outfitted in a special collectible case. The 16.9 oz. bottles will contain Pepsi Made with Real Sugar and will sell for $20.15.

Well, that’s a lot of dollars to pay for something you probably won’t even drink because you realize it’s a collectible and might be wroth a couple extra dollars on eBay in 15 years from now or something. Then again, it’s a collectible, so if you’re a BTTF fan just suck it up and pony up.

That Bike From The TRON Movie Will Soon Be Up For Auciton

Screen Shot 2015-04-02 at 5.23.19 PM

You’re looking at a fully functioning replica of the bike used in the 2010 movie TRON:Legacy. Even if the movie wasn’t exactly a stellar flick, it has spawned countless pop culture references in the half-decade since its release. This particular bike was built for “the Andrews Collection, one of America’s biggest and best car collections, most of which is currently being sold at auction.”

96 volt, direct-drive electric motor with lithium batteries and a computer-controlled throttle, rebound and compression damping with spring-preload front suspension and rigid rear suspension, and front and rear hydraulic brakes. This custom Tron tribute boasts a very low seat height of 28.5 inches, making it easy to ride even at low speeds. The motorcycle is finished in black with a white stripe and boasts an imposing stance to match its performance.

It was only ever ridden around the Andrews Collection’s facilities to ensure it’s still in working order, so it’s in an as-new state. The auction will be held on May 2nd at a Sotheby’s location, with a $25,000-$40,000 starting bid and no reserve. That means you could snatch it for even less… if it just so happens that no one else is interested in it, which seems unlikely.

Hit the jump for a bunch more pics.

Watch What Happens When This DeLorean iPhone Case Reaches 88mph

back-to-the-future-delorean-iphone-case-1

Remember that Batmobile iPhone case from a week ago? Well, retailer Bandai is back with another cool case, and this time it’s a DeLorean. Right in time for 2015’s BTTF2 “future”, the case lights up when you get a call, and various ports let you access common buttons as well as create an opening for the camera. So that means your phone will remain mostly functional while you can still proclaim to the world “well, damn, I may not have a hoverboard like I was promised, but at least I got my DeLorean phone.” Which is totally not something anyone would say, and is just filler fluff we had to write because there’s really not much else to say about the $50 case.

“It’s a $50 DeLorean iPhone 6 case that lights up and stuff.”

That would have done it.

Hasbro To Launch A Make-Your-Own Line Of Lightsabers

do-it-yourself-lightsaber-kits

It’s pretty clear there’s a new Star Wars movie in the works because the merchandising machine is starting to run full steam. Hasbro has announced a cool line of lightsaber toys that can be customized in many ways, allowing children young and old alike to create lightsabers that are as weird as they’d be potentially lethal to the person who wields them.

The main Jedi Master Lightsaber set (for ages 4 and up, $49.99 includes a lightsaber with lights and electronic sounds, a pair of lightdaggers, an expansion hilt and a variety of connectors.

From there, kids can mIx and match from three other assortments with connectors and lightsaber blades tied to various characters. The electronic lightsaber ($19.99) comes in Obi-Wan Kenobi, Darth Vader and Luke Skywalker flavors, the foam lightsaber ($14.99) has Yoda, Vader and Luke variants, and the extend lightsaber ($9.99) offers something for Luke, Vader and Anakin Skywalker fans.

The line was on display at New York’s Toy Fair last week and will be launching this fall, in time for the release of the new movie in December.

Floating Iron Man Suit Is The Coolest Useless Toy Money Can Buy

iron-man-floating-figure

We’re not sure it’s ever smart to spend a large chunk of change on a toy, but if you have $170 burning a hole in your pocket, the Iron Man Mark II Special Floating Edition sure looks cool. It’s part of the Egg Attack series, and floats in mid-air thanks to a combination of attracting and repulsing magnets.

True to the key features of the Egg Attack series, Iron Man’s every detail is meticulously crafted, including the armor, joints, and flying mode air deflector. The Iron Man 3 Mark II Magnetic floating version’s main body is painted with high-quality metal coating, showcasing Mark II’s steel-like armor. High-luminance LED light is hidden within the eye, chest reactor, and feet, which stays true to the night flying mode in the Iron Man movie.

The Egg Attack Iron Man 3 Mark II Magnetic Floating Version is shipped with a glowing magnetic levitation base, a customized battery case (fits 8 AA batteries, sold separately), and a protective sheet.

So that’s it, $170 for an awesome levitating Iron Man toy. Watch the video; it’s hard not to want it.

Alien Facehugger Leash Needs To Be Ours

alien-facehugger-dog-leash-1

Although we’ll have to buy a dog first. And we better make that an all black dog, because as cool as this leash is, the FaceHugger itself is attached to a black harness that will ruin the illusion if tied to anything but a black canine. That aside, this is one awesome leash. The alien is made of airbrushed foam, and the harness ties up with velcro. It fits smallish dogs, ranging between 15-35 pounds in size. It’s also pretty darn expensive at $150, but we bet you’ll be the only one in the neighbourhood with something like this and are likely to be quite the hit at the dog park…
