This radio-controlled vehicle has got to be one of the coolest toys of the summer. The Air Hogs Storm Launcher ($65) zooms at top speed over any surface, including water, pavement, sand, grass and snow. It can do all kinds of crazy jumps and stunts. Oh yeah, and it can fly. Talk about hours of fun. Check out this video of the Storm Launcher in action — it'll make you want to break out the Visa. [Thanks, Brian]
Being the Mac fans that we are, we've been patiently waiting for PodBrix to release another Apple-inspired Lego creation. The PodBrix 1984 Playset ($200; Aug. 2) is the artist's latest and most ambitious set yet. Inspired by the classic "1984" Super Bowl ad that introduced the Macintosh, the set contains 15 figures in all, including a detailed "runner" figure, 2 riot police figures, and 12 audience members. It also features an LED backlit movie screen displaying a "Big Brother" figure. If you think this is as sweet as we do, get ready to pony-up the cash tomorrow — there's only 100 available. [via]
Inspired by the ever-nostalgic Jason Kottke, we bring you an original 1989 Upper Deck Baseball Wax Box ($110). We remember our pre-teen years begging mom for two bucks and a ride down to the local baseball card shop so we could sift through a box of these for one measly pack, only to wind up Griffey-less yet again. Now that you're an adult with a job and actual money, why not treat yourself to an entire box of the most sought after baseball cards from back in day? You get 36 unopened packs with 15 cards each. Score!
