Spinning bot kick: Street Fighter Transformers are a real, official thing, somehow

Sometimes, fictional worlds collide because a movie executive figures there's a ton of green to be made from a bunch of superheroes frowning at each other. Sometimes, they collide because a toy designer has a brilliantly stupid idea in the shower. Ladies and germs, I give you Street Fighter x Transformers, which stars, amongst others, Optimus Prime as Ryu, Megatron as M.Bison and Hot Rod…

They were originally due out at the end of October, only to be delayed until…

I Like This Fallout 4 Action Figure More Than Fallout 4

I'm generally quite averse to game merchandise - I like to keep my flesh-life and my screen-life separate - and I have very mixed feelings about Fallout 4 [official site], but this action figure is making me rethink my approach to desk decoration. It's a semi-transforming power armour toy, containing a removable, boilersuit-clad Vaultdude within, and made by high-end figure firm 3A. I know we…

Wot I & My 2 Year Old Think: DOOM Cacodemon Plush Toy

I'm amazed it took them two decades, to be honest, but there is now an official soft toy based on DOOM's floaty, cyclopic head o'death the Cacodemon. What was once meant to be a chilling avatar of demonic terror is now furry, squeezable and cute as big red button. Because I am an entirely-self interested father, I bought one for my daughter Connie's second birthday…
