Dinosaurs Chomping On Play-Doh People Sounds Like A Really Great Game

In Jurassic Park, its sequels and Jurassic World, there are plenty of people being eaten by dinosaurs. But the toys released alongside those Jurassic movies usually tip-toe around that ugly reality. Except for Play-Doh, who wholeheartedly encourages kids to make tiny plasticine people destined to be dino dinner. Awesome.


Hasbro's Bringing Back Skylynx As A Transformers Combiner

Originally released way back in 1986, Skylynx was one of the grander Transformers toys of its time, combining a walking, rolling mechanised lion with a bird that turned into a space shuttle. In retrospect, a robot griffin didn’t make a lot of sense, but that didn’t stop it from being awesome. And that’s obviously why Hasbro has chosen to revive Skylynx as part of its incredibly popular Combiners series.


Would You Pay $10 For An Ant-Man Figure Smaller Than A Penny?

San Diego Comic-Con is just around the corner, which means endless announcements for exclusives and collectibles you can only get at the show. But rare or not, would you be willing to spend $US10 on a 0.75-inch tall Ant-Man figure with zero points of articulation?


Spinning Magnetic Cores Make These Brawlasaurs Dinos Battle It Out

Dinosaurs aren’t supposed to be cuddly. The Greek origins of their name actually means ‘terrible lizard’, so kudos to Hasbro for making its new Jurassic World Brawlasaurs toys live up to that legacy. Thanks to a wind-up magnetic core, when two of them meet face-to-face they don’t talk out their differences, they just battle.


The First Hose-Connected Super Soaker Blasts An Infinite Stream Of Water

It’s a universal law that whoever controls the hose, controls the backyard water fight. And while Super Soakers have long provided a worthy opposition to a garden hose, the new Floodfire blaster is the first to combine both to create an unstoppable soaking machine with an infinite supply of water.


You Can Buy The First The Force Awakens Figure At Comic-Con

Can’t wait until September to get your hands on some new Star Wars toys? If you’re headed to the San Diego Comic-Con in July, you won’t have to wait because Hasbro will happily sell you this SDCC-exclusive Stormtrooper figure featuring the new helmet design seen in The Force Awakens teasers.


KRE-O's Transformers Class Of 1985 Includes Grimlock And Devastator

The KRE-O building toys are Hasbro’s answer to Lego, but with retro properties like G.I. Joe and Transformers at their disposal, they’re even more effective at luring in nostalgia seekers. So following up on last year’s San Diego Comic-Con exclusive Class of 1984 set of KREON figures, Hasbro is returning to SDCC this year with a new Class of 1985 version featuring characters introduced in the second season of the Transformers cartoon.


Disney's Interactive Playmation Toys Turn Kids Into Action Figures

Part cosplay, part laser tag and part interactive toy, Disney and Hasbro have teamed up to create a new line of toys and wearable accessories called Playmation that encourages kids to be more active during playtime, instead of just sitting on a couch poking at a touchscreen.


There's Already A Special Edition Of That New Devastator For Comic-Con

First revealed at Toy Fair earlier this year, you unfortunately can’t actually buy Hasbro’s gigantic new Transformers Constructicons set yet. But there’s already a special edition version being teased for the 2015 San Diego Comic-Con.


Nerf Hid A Surprisingly Capable Dart Gun In A Fashion Accessory

The Hunger Games’ Katniss Everdeen helped reinforce the idea that young women don’t have to wait for a knight in shining armour to come and rescue them; they can instead pick up a weapon and be the hero themselves. But instead of reaching for a bow and arrow, Nerf’s Rebelle line wants them to reach for its new Secret Shot that hides a four-shot blaster inside a useless, but arguably fashionable, accessory.
