LEGO Musicians Rock Out

LEGO can be used for so many things that it’s sometimes hard to remember they started as, and mostly remain, children’s toys. Still, that hasn’t stopped LEGO artist Adly Syairi Ramly from taking everyone’s favorite construction toys and recreating 20 of the world’s most famous bands with them. To this point, adults who play with LEGO have stayed primarily in the sci-fi and superhero genres, though we also remember a recent inclusion of Breaking Bad. Never, however, have we seen someone take on the music genre with such obvious skill and fervor. Our personal favorites presented here (creations, not bands) Read More

15 G.I. Joe Action Figures You Probably Forgot

When we set out to honor G.I. Joe on his 50th birthday, we were initially stumped about how to do it. While the 12-inch original is a classic of toy history, the brand enjoyed its highest level of notoriety starting in 1982 when it scaled the figures down to 3 3/4 inches. With a popular comic book, cartoon series, and animated film under its belt, G.I. Joe’s best run was clearly that 1982 to 1994 time period, so we decided to focus on that. However, we didn’t want to do something boring and predictable like “Best G.I. Joe Characters.” It’s Read More
