Wowzers trousers… this thing is EPIC! From the good people at Three Zero comes this absolutely massive 1/12 Scale Titanfall Stryder & Pilot Action Figure Set! This is truly a collectible of massive proportions – it towers at over half a meter tall!

The Strider's torso and leg armour plates, waist area, arms, fingers and more all move in various different ways boasting over 100 points of articulation. The cockpit hatch can also be opened and closed, and the included pilot of the same scale can even be seated inside. The inside of the cockpit, torso and back thrusters all feature light-up effects with interchangeable red and blue lights.

The Strider also comes with a plasma railgun, and the ammo drum can even be detached from the weapon. The left shoulder features a missile launcher with a cover the can be opened. The included pilot is also gully articulated and is dressed in an outfit made from real fabric for a truly realistic appearance. Detailed armour parts are also included worn over the fabric, but can instead be detached is you desire. The pilot also carries a CAR101 weapon.

Of course, a collectible of this magnitude is bound to sell out long before it lands, so if you don't want to be left hanging, strap in and pre-order your Titanfall Stryder Figure now!

This is a truly fantastic range, and we can't wait to get collecting (One of us has already pre-ordered the jaw-dropping Kier Valkyrie!) Currently we have the beautiful and dark Queen of the Dead Premium Format Figure in stock and ready to ship – and like each of the pieces in the Court of the Dead range, these are limited – there are only 3000 units of this worldwide!

Only Death stands between these cataclysmic forces, positioned as the unlikely arbiter of Man’s souls –an energy source used to feed the gluttonous war machines on both sides of this unending struggle.

The guys at Elgato have been very actively broadening their horizons. Already very well known for their expertise in video game capture hardware, they are once again bringing forward a product to alleviate the stress losing something dear to you.

The Elgato Smart Key is a very nifty little device indeed. It connects to your Apple device with iOS 7 or later via bluetooth, and from there it tracks what ever you attach it to.

The first thing that came to mind when I got my hands on one, was my keys, simple enough to clip it on an empty key ring and never lose my keys again. But the possibilities are truly endless…

A few of the more creative uses I have seen floating about are…
