Doctor Who and LEGO, together forever! When you think of the crossover appeal, it seems like a no-brainer. Children have probably been putting down LEGO blocks to turn on the television and watch Doctor Who for decades now. Yet there never was an official set that let kids assemble the Doctor, the companions, the TARDIS, and the monsters to play with in the LEGO make believe worlds.
Until now, that is. LEGO announced this week that Doctor Who will be subject of their next LEGO Ideas set. The idea for the set was submitted by Who fan Andrew Clark, an artist at a game design company by day and devoted LEGObuilder at night. Final design, pricing, and availability of the set is yet to be announced.
As a child, I played with my share of Play-Doh, the wildly popular, colorful modeling clay used for both fun and education. As an adult, I’ve gifted a ton of the stuff to my hordes of godchildren, nieces, and nephews. These days, there’s all kinds of variations of the modeling compound with many accessories, playsets, and other tools to accompany it.
But, let’s talk about one of those tools – one that appeared to be more dildo than Play-Doh. Yes, that’s right, I said dildo, as an “extruder tool” that comes with the Play-Doh Sweet Shoppe Cake Mountain Playset is, in fact, shaped like a penis. And when you squeeze the Play-Doh out of it to make the “icing,” well, you can imagine what that looks like, right?
Every month I patiently await my happy little Box of Dread from Dread Central. The boxes, which are filled with all sorts of horror regalia, come delivered monthly to your door. In the past few months, I received DVDs, toys, stickers, posters, buttons, etc. Not every box will contain the exact same things (some do), but will have similar themes.
This month happens to be October, which for horror fans means Christmas has come early and Halloween is here. It also means to return to television for arguably horror’s most popular show, AMC’s The Walking Dead.
Continue reading for more on this month’s Box of Dread, and to see some images and unboxing videos.
In honor of the 30-year anniversary of Ghostbusters, we’ll see the film’s return to theaters today for one-week-only, as well as an upcoming Blu-ray containing digitally restored editions of the film and its sequel packaged together in a DigiPak.
Funko Pop! has a bunch of Ghostbusters vinyl figures that I wanted to point out (and by point out, I mean, by for myself), including the insanely adorable Stay Puft Marshmallow Man!!! (Want, need, must-have!), Winston with the Ecto 1, a Battle Damaged Stay Puft, and a special limited edition 30th anniversary set.
