Tetsuya Nomura is best known for his design work on Final Fantasy and Kingdom Hearts (for better or for worse). But he's also known for designing the world's most bizarre Batman figure, which turned the Dark Knight into... well, the giant Final Fantasy dragon-god Bahamut, basically. Now he's back to do the same to the Joker, and it's just as wacky.

Honestly, this is usually the bit of Toy Aisle where we tease the rest of the fancy toys and merchandise we've spotted over the past week. But when you learn that there's a goddamn giant Mickey Mouse mecha that turns into a truck, Optimus Prime-style, do you really need to know what else there is in here? Let's just get started.

The world went a bit nuts last month when a company called Nimuno launched an Indiegogo campaign for Loops, its flexible adhesive-backed toy block tape — don't say the word LEGO, guys — that could be stuck to just about any surface and then have toy blocks clipped on to it. If you missed out, don't stress — it'll be in stores in Australia soon enough.

Video: Think your office is cool and progressive because there's a ping pong table in the corner? You'll still be stuck at your soul-sucking cubicle desk most of the day, which is why these engineers created a giant slot car track that races across everyone's desk, letting you compete while still getting some work done. (Theoretically. Who could resist getting totally distracted?)

Tony Stark can't stop tinkering., That's why anytime Iron Man shows up in a Marvel movie, he's inevitably sporting a new suit of armour (I suppose merchandise might also play a small role.) The upcoming Spider-Man: Homecoming certainly won't be an exception, as Tony Stark has a brand new Mark XLVII suit he'll be wearing — and we finally have a good look at it, courtesy of... the merchandise.

If there are two things every stroller lacks, it's a $4000 price tag and the ability to make a child look like an unfortunate castoff from Downton Abbey. Luckily for all of us, however, a company called D.Throne has created an obscenely over-the-top electric car for kids that you can justify as an essential baby accessory, if you're the kind of person who expels money from every orifice.

Welcome back to Toy Aisle, our roundup of the most interesting toys we've seen this week. It's a Guardians of the Galaxy blowout as we have life-sized Groots, creepy plush Groots and a fancy cassette player.

Video: As everyone from Texas already knows, bigger is always better, be it a giant steak or a remote control pickup truck that's 2m long, making it roughly a third the size of the real thing. At $US5250 ($6945), the Mammuth Works' Rewarron doesn't come cheap, but you can thrash it around a track without ever having to worry about your insurance rates going up.
