The Nerf Mega Mastodon is essentially a motorized blaster that's capable of firing 24 super-sized foam darts in seconds, and it comes complete with a heavy duty shoulder strap as well. However, all this power comes at a price, $80 to be exact. Unfortunately, it's not powered by a rechargeable lithium battery, but rather 6 D-sized batteries, so you may not want to use this for extended office battles.

Bandai's Darth Vader Samurai may be just a toy, but this video brings the mythical character to life. To be more specific VS Gag pitted the villain against Kamen Rider Black RX - a fictional henshin superhero character featured in Japanese tokusatsu. "It seems that it takes VS GAG about three months to make one video, so we'll be waiting quite a while for the next one. But we're definitely looking forward to whatever they produce," according to Rocket News. Continue reading for a video review of the figure you see above.
First came the Rival Apollo XV-700, now Nerf has upped the game with its all-new Rival Khaos MXVI-4000 blaster.

No word yet on availability, but expect to shell out $70 for this gadget once it hits stores later this year. Continue reading for a video and more information.
Liquid Glass Putty can stretch like rubber and bounce like a ball, and since it's silicone-based, the material won't dry out or crumble over time. Think of this as part toy, part stress reliever, part physical therapy and entirely addictive, or so the manufacturer thinks. However, pouring 500-pounds of this stuff into a bathtub and trying to climb out after the putty settles, is another story. Get some here now.

Brick master Ryan McNaught used 120,000 LEGO bricks to recreate the doomed Titanic breaking in half after hitting the iceberg. This isn't just some empty model, he added numerous minifigures in action poses to lighten the mood, with some actually in the water and / or boats. Unfortunately (or fortunately), there are no Jack and Rose sightings from the movie version. Continue reading for more pictures and information.
A 1329-piece LEGO Millennium Falcon already exists, but fan Marshal Banana went above and beyond to create his own 22-pound version of the famous starship. "It took me a whole year to accomplish this build (including planning and collecting bricks). My main goal was to present the model in a flying position, which was a huge task. Due to its internal framework it was not possible to include an interior, but I was able to fully lighten the model. And there was still enough space left to include a detailed cockpit (with 4 seats), gunner's platform and a lowering ramp," said Marshal. Continue reading for more pictures of the Falcon.

Tamiya's CR-01 Crawler Toyota Land Cruiser is no ordinary remote-controlled vehicle, as it's designed to go anywhere, thanks to short progressive springs and a 4-link rigid suspension. The motor is placed in a central position, with planetary gears enabling low-speed shaft-driven 4WD. Front and rear differentials can be locked. Large-diameter tires feature a tread pattern which extends to the sidewalls, and are fitted to beadlock wheels. Get one here now.

Elementary school teacher Alycia Zimmerman found that her students were not responding well to traditional math assignments, so she decided to use LEGO bricks instead to develop their spatial and proportional awareness. Since these bricks are already marked with studs grouped in twos, students can easily use them to identify patterns, making arithmetic concepts understandable, while also providing a fun experience.
