Voltron is About to Celebrate His Dirty Thirty?!?

Holy crap, Voltron is 30 years old?!? And what better way to celebrate than by issuing an all new, commemorative toy!

According to where this will be available, the 30th Anniversary Voltron will be 11 inches of die-cast goodness, with light up eyes, and will also come with the badge that becomes a key (Remember? Activate interlock!) that you can put in the display stand to activate the lion's roar.

I didn't have the original Go Lion toy as a kid, I had the knockoff Lion Bot, which was only partly die-cast and not durable at all.  Or maybe I was just a rough kid? So I'd love to have this new figure, which looks way more poseable than the original toy.  The one caveat?  It's $225.  That's a lot to pay for a piece of your childhood.  The 30th Anniversary Voltron comes out in February 2014.

Uncharted 4

The next Uncharted game has been teased by Naughty Dog for the PlayStation 4.  The tease however makes no mention of Nathan Drake, the protagonist of the first 3 games (and who I dressed up as for Halloween) :P  Speculation is rampant that there will be a new lead character, and if you ask me, that would be like replacing Lara Croft from Tomb Raider.  But, if the quality of the game is like the previous 3, I'll definitely be buying a PS4 sometime in the next year.  You can read more about the tease here.

Mjolnir has been forged...

not in the heart of a dying star, but in the blacksmith shop of Tony Swatton.  This is a ridiculously cool build. Thor: The Dark World is in theaters now.

RoboCop Trailer

In fact it shows off way more of RoboCop than we've seen before and this time it gives us glimpses of Samuel L. Jackson as some kind of Don King promoter (complete with wacky hair) and Michael Keaton as an executive in charge of creating RoboCop.  I must say this looks like it's gonna be tons of fun.  And Michael Keaton needs to be in more things...
