Not so long, long ago in a bedroom that happened to not be far, far enough from my bed, some dorm mates were getting BIZZAY. There are plenty of marital aids out there, to help spice up a relationship. From that neck massager in your mom’s draw, to a suspicious pump that should only be handled with chemical gloves, the options are varied. Especially if you’re looking for something more nerdcore.
There’s something relaxing about collecting toys (THEY’RE CALLED ACTION FIGURES DAMMIT!) of a particular franchise. Getting a full run of collectable figures, is a time-consuming and challenging task. Not too mention expensive as hell. And then, you get those people who decide to flog the entire collection that they have built up, such as this one, which recently went up for auction on eBay.
I love Skylanders. i think it’s one of the bravest, boldest and wallet unfriendly properties Activision’s released in a long time. The genius marriage of video games and toys has my own kids whining at me for new Skylanders all the time, and the imminent release of Skylanders Giants is only going to make my wallet feel worse. It’s done better than Activision was expecting.
We love our toys over here at Lazygamer. Which is why we write about them over on Tegato. And if you happen to be a Mass Effect fan with a wallet that is burning a hole in your pocket, then you might want to take a quick gander at the latest wave of toys, that features Commander Shepard and company.
The bright, colourful and ultimately kid-focused money-trap Skylanders is probably one of the best games available for younger gamers today. The use of physical toys that come to “life” inside of a videogame is nothing short of genius - and one of my favourite ways to spend a Saturday morning with my kids.
It could have been completely different.
