The week is about to end and you know what that means: another round of drooling and wishing we had all the money in the world coming right up!
A remote controlled flying terror, the ultimate toy for the Marvel super fan, a real-life Bat-suit and more in this week's edition of Cool Stuff We Want Right Now!
THIS MOVING HULKBUSTER ACTION FIGURE

Standing four feet tall and with moving parts, this Hulkbuster action figure could very well be the ultimate toy for the Marvel superfan. Too bad it's just a concept which means things like pricing and availability are TBA. Not that we have the cash for it (it will probably cost an arm and a leg) but we're wishing Comicave Studios (the company behind the video) makes this one a reality.
THIS GAME OF THRONES TOILET
Created by Tim Baker Creations for Super-Fan Builds (a show that builds custom creations of items fans of comic books will love), this potty brings legit Game of Thrones cred to your bathroom break. It's not made with the blood of men, dragon fire, and heaps of precious metals though. Rather, its main ingredients are plywood, foam, and a shitload (see what we did there?) of paint.

No word if retail versions will be made though. Here's to hoping no one dies while taking a crap on it; you know how the show goes, right?
THIS MAN TOOL FOR YOUR MAN TOOLS
If you have the actual man skills to fix stuff around the house or in your garage (we envy you!), then you're going to love this: a magnetic vest called the Mag-Vest that keeps your metallic tools in place while you get your hands dirty. Because how many times have we lost screws and dropped a screwdriver or two, right?

The Mag-Vest is currently on Kickstarter status, and you can order one now for $60 (around P2,660) if you donate to the cause.
THIS REAL-LIFE BAT-SUIT
Batman is still human, which is why his body still needs protection. We're all humans as well—the very reason why we envy him having a Bat-suit that protects his torso from whacks, punches, pokes, slices, and other things that reduce us mere mortals to a bloody mess. The good news: A college kid named Gordon Jackson has created a stab- and punch-proof batsuit made of Kevlar and durable foam. What were we doing in school?

It doesn't look as kick-ass as the movie version, but we'll take it! If ever it enters the market (no confirmation on this yet), we'll be saving up big time because, let's face it, the world is a dangerous place.
THIS R2-D2-THEMED PLANE

You know we just had to include a Star Wars-themed something in this list with the official release of geek-tastic new trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens yesterday. Here it is, and it's a biggie: a Boeing 787 from Nippon Airways that's painted to look like the iconic R2-D2! Obviously, this one will bankrupt the 99-percent (a Boeing 787 goes for around $250 million or P11 billion), so we'll be happy with a plane ticket.
THESE MONSTER BOXES

Storing all the crap you don't need is a mundane affair, but you can inject a bit of life into it with these Monster Boxes from Fine Line Workshop. Each one comes with sharp teeth and eyes that stare into your soul—perfect for scaring your nosy inaanak.. We really like the look because it reminds us of the baddies we slay in RPGs (a box with an ogre face, anyone?). These will be available via Etsy, although the asking price hasn't been revealed yet.
It rolls, it flies, and it will make you drool. Lads, meet the Sky Runner drone:

We could just imagine all the naughty stuff awesome footage we'll capture with it! And, yes, you can buy it now for $64.99 (around P2,900). Not bad for a gizmo that can chase dogs and fly up to 100 feet, right?
THIS SUPER SLIM METALLIC MACHINE
In need of some serious computing power in a payatot-friendly frame? Then you might want to check out the all-metal ASUS Transformer Book T300 Chi hybrid device. It functions as both a tablet and a laptop (it has a detachable keyboard), delivers speedy performance thanks to its Intel Core M processor and up to 8GB of RAM, and blasts top-notch eye-candy with its Full-HD touchscreen. All that in a package that weighs significantly less than a kilo (720g) and measures only 1.65cm. Whoa, that's even thinner than the Apple MacBook Air!
This bad boy is now available locally starting at P39,995.
THIS STAR WARS-LEGO MASTERPIECE

Because we just can't get enough of Star Wars right now, here's a Star Wars-inspired LEGO set that features a miniature version of Tatooine—one of the most popular places in the sci-fi franchise. It also includes LEGO-versions of Luke Skywalker, C3PO, and R2-D2, among others. This 140-piece set is now available over $40 (around P1,800).
THIS CRAZY FLIER
And rounding up this list of sweet toys/gizmos/shiny thingamajigs is this crazy flying contraption, the RC pterodactyl:

Unleash it at the park and watch them little ones search for cover (or be frozen stiff by this toy's sheer awesomeness). It comes with a five-foot wingspan and pterodactyl noises to max the terror factor! Fortunately for us, this one's not extinct unlike its Jurassic Age kin; you could actually pre-order one now here for $250 (around P11,000). Nooice!
We're so stoked
