We fell in love with Modarri Cars this year. You can drive the car easily with one finger, thanks to its incredible suspension. But it doesn’t end there, mix and match the pieces in millions of combinations to customize your own awesome ride.
Stay tuned for our 2016 Toy Fair coverage starting next weekend!
Woo hoo! It’s finally here! October 21, 2015! The future!
I am participating this evening by taking my eight year old son to the theater to see Part II for the first time this evening. But I wanted you guys to see how long and ingrained our Back to the Future coverage has been on Millionaire Playboy. Due to a blog platform shift in the early twenty first century, I got two pages for you.
Here is our first batch of articles from our early blog. It includes reviews of the Welly and Sunstar die-cast Deloreans, the Flux Capacitor video we made, and reviews and photos of the minimates and kubricks. I still have all of these things on display proudly at home. Check out the Back to the Future toys reviews and photos.
Now zoom ahead to the future! I mean the common era and see all of our Contemporary articles. This is mostly cool videos and news about upcoming toys (some have already come out! Talk about looking to the future!)
We take a look at the NERF Zombie Strike Doominator. It features 24 darts, and in our tests, shot just over 30 feet. Our eight year old tester loves this gun, and is excited to show you why. Watch in HD

My seven year old son and I love watching Pacific Rim. He wanted some of the NECA action figures for Christmas so he could make a stop-motion animation. So I obliged and he got Gypsy Danger (Hong Kong battle) and Knifehead.
I downloaded the Lego Movie Maker app for iPhone, and my son took off from there. The beginning portion of this animation is all his. He used the onion skin feature to make sure the figures moved appropriately came up with the whole story line, and added the dialogue and original sound effects. I took the finished product and shot the ending, added music and called it a day.
Also, my son’s favorite toys are Wicked Cool Toys’ Crashlings. So they made an appearance as well.
My wonderful wife and adoring son knew exactly what I wanted for my birthday and surprised me with the Playmobil Ferris Wheel (with optional motor). I love the fair. I’ve photographed our County Fair for local blogs and TV station for the last few years. I love everything that the fair means for a community, and the people it brings together. There is some old school Americana at the fair, and I usually go four or five times through its run. And you know I love playmobil, so when playmobil hit the fair, I was fixated. Check out my pics below, and see the video of the lights and motor in action.
The Hypertrax features all-terrain treads to get over almost any obstacle, and a slim enough body that if it ends up upside-down, it can keep going. For young, inexperienced RC drivers, this car is perfect for just zipping around and getting used to steering. I like that the remote and charger are self-contained, however I have found that because the AA batteries are charging the car and the remote, it drains quickly. It takes a little over 20 minutes to charge up the vehicle, and then it drives for about 10 minutes.
The Hyper Actives 5 features a motorized wheel on top, assisting in any flip-overs. It has a bit more power (and it’s own AA powersource) so it’s going to win races, but it works best on asphalt or other smooth surfaces, it got a little hung up in the grass.
