Here's our first look at the new LEGO Minifigures Series 12 line-up!
Although no official names have been given (yet) most of the characters appear fairly self-explanatory (although I'm not sure about the creepy black & white schoolgirl - is this LEGO's tribute to the ghost-girls of Asian horror?) and there certainly appears to be something here for everyone. I'm personally looking forward to grabbing the wizard (Merlin?), the Jester and the Medieval Princess but the Viking [EDIT: upon closer inspection he appears to be a Mongol Warrior, possibly even Ghengis Khan!), Greek Goddess, Musketeer and Pizza Delivery Guy will, I'm sure, find their way into my collection, too.
No word yet on when we can expect to see them in stores but we'll let you know when we know!
Gentle Giant Ltd. is proud to bring you another piece of toy history with their 2014 SDCC Exclusive Glow in the Dark Alien Jumbo Kenner-inspired Figure! Gentle Giant Ltd. has taken an original 18-inch tall Kenner Alien figure, rescaled it to a staggering 24-inches tall, and made it glow! Limited edition size of 250 pieces worldwide. This gargantuan Jumbo figure possesses features based on the original, such as the white teeth and a 100% Glow-In-The-Dark body. No detail has been overlooked.

Cowabunga! That is one ginormous action figure! Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fans gather round. This is your chance to own a truly fantastic - and huge - action figure of Michelangelo, complete with his signature nunchucks. The shell opens to provide a place to store your smaller TMNT collectibles. Looking just like Mikey, the TMNT Michelangelo 48-Inch Action Figure has to be one of the coolest TMNT figures ever!

Last Christmas we bid a tearful farewell to the brilliant Matt Smith in his Doctor Who swansong, The Time of the Doctor. Now you can relive his final moments whilst welcoming new Doctor Peter Capaldi to the role, with this awesome 5'' figure, coming this October from Underground Toys.
The figure is presented in a collector case and features three interchangeable heads and two swap-able chest pieces, along with the Doctor's Sonic Screwdriver, walking cane and Handles the Cyberhead. Post-regeneration figures are always popular and you can be sure that this one will prove to be a huge hit with fans so to avoid disappointment, get your pre-order in right now over at Entertainment Earth.
We often bring you reviews and video reviews of LEGO products but one of the great things about LEGO is the fact that you can use it to create your own toys. There are some great custom creations out there and so we thought it was time to showcase a few, starting with this great ''Cozy Kitchen'' tutorial from Jaystepher. And don't worry if you don't have all the pieces Jaystepher uses in this tutorial: the beauty of the LEGO system is that the lack of a piece used in the video is simply just an opportunity to exercise your creativity and come up with a different solution for YOUR build!
