Lego Boba Fett’s throne room
Even if Boba Fett’s Book ended up being nothing more than a transitional series setting up the third season of The Mandalorianit was still a rather amusing romp, and the iconic image of Fett seated on Jabba the Hutt’s throne certainly deserves its own Lego set.

We all know how the Sega vs. Nintendo battle ended, and while there were video game character casualties on both sides, it’s nice to see that Sonic the Hedgehog survived to run another very fast day.

AT $50, that isn’t cheap, but the figure features 13 points of articulation plus three sets of hands, eyes, and mouths to strike the perfect pose and expression.
Brando Workshop Pokemon Pikachu Wireless Mouse
Pikachu brings the same energy to this cute wireless mouse everyone brings in 2022: complete exhaustion to the point where you just feel like sprawling on a mouse pad (or bed) and sleeping for months. The $51 Mouse is symmetrical so it can be used by right- or left-handers, and while the left and right mouse buttons are camouflaged like Pikachu’s ears, the yellow scroll was apparently harder to hide. The optical mouse features 800 dpi resolution and includes its own wireless dongle instead of using Bluetooth.
