Video: Our favourite puppeteer Barnaby Dixon is back with a kickarse puppet raptor that packs so many moves that it totally feels like it has its own mind. The tail wags back and forth independently, the mouth opens and closes with ferocity and the body and arms move as naturally as anything you've seen in Jurassic Park.

Video: Forget about dropping $469.95 on the Nintendo Switch just to get your next Super Mario Bros. fix. As Jason Cichon demonstrates, all you need is a big pile of plastic bricks and some mad LEGO skills to build a custom side-scrolling Super Mario level. The only thing that's really missing is a hero.
Scrooge McDuck was always the cranky but loveable curmudgeon that helped make the Duck Tales animated series so wonderful. But for some reason it's now Donald Duck who is furiously angry, which makes no sense given he and his three nephews, Huey, Dewey, and Louie, are getting a wonderful action figure treatment.
Video: Some people take their Nerf dart blasters very seriously. There are entire leagues dedicated to running around and blasting fellow players with foam darts — essentially a less painful version of paintball. But what darts are worth arming yourself with? Nerf expert Frank Cooper breaks it down in this exhaustively comprehensive comparison video.
There's a reason nature uses eggs to protect offspring who develop outside their mothers. Domes are inherently strong and durable, so it also makes sense to build a drone with a similarly bulbous shape to help it survive crashes, collisions and other accidents when an amateur pilot is at the controls.
Though musicians like David Bowie found ways to incorporate the Stylophone's unique sound into their music, the tiny synthesiser has mostly been considered nothing more than a musical toy. But Dubreq wants to change that with a new feature-packed version of the Stylophone that might finally legitimise the toy as a real musical instrument.
Since 1933 when the board game first appeared, Monopoly's tokens have changed and evolved over the years to reflect the times. In 2013 Hasbro even let fans vote to replace the iconic iron token with a cat, and starting today, the internet now has the chance to choose what replaces every last token for an upcoming version of the game.
After the release of the NES Classic Edition, there's been quite a bit of speculation about what console Nintendo plans to miniaturise next. The SNES? The N64? The geniuses at Kei Studio clearly want a Game Boy Classic Edition, but instead of waiting for Nintendo to make one, they went and hacked together their own.
Video: It's one of the oldest tricks in Hollywood: If you want a tiny model to look like a full-size vehicle, you just need to film it with a high speed camera. As The Slow Mo Guys demonstrate in their latest round of experiments, a couple of Traxxas XO-1 RC cars suddenly look like there's a Hollywood stuntperson behind the wheel when filmed doing stunts at 1000 frames per second.
Look, I'm not gonna say no to some new Mighty Morphin' Power Rangers action figures. But it kind of seems like a bad idea to package figures of the original TV show costume designs with their movie counterparts, mainly because they're instant, undeniable proof of how much better the original suits were in comparison.
Companies like Hot Toys are known for their incredibly realistic action figures, but you can only pack so much detail into a toy that's 30cm tall. So a Chinese company called The Toys Asia has taken the concept of an action figure to a whole new level with a life-size, fully-animated version of Iron Man's armour.
