Celebrating 25 years of Grayskull, Mattel has launched a new line of He-Man action figures that make your 80's versions look downright dumb. The Masters of the Universe Classics ($20) are fully detailed and articulated, landing somewhere between the originals and the crazy anime-inspired ones a couple years back. The first two available this fall will be He-Man and Beast Man, with one new figure going on sale every month.
Nerf darts at noon are fine and dandy, but real office warfare is done after hours in low light with the Lazer Tag Multiplayer Battle System ($80). The new package includes two Phoenix LTX guns (with rumble pack, recoil feature, and manual reload option), a Pinpoint Sight (for better accuracy), and a Shot Blast attachment (to tag multiple targets at once and boost your hit damage). You can add an unlimited amount of guns for total co-worker mayhem, and you can sharpen your skills with the included video game module that hooks up to your TV for a first-person Lazer Tag game.
We'll admit to not having had the best luck with pint-sized R/C choppers, but the Black Stealth 3-Channel R/C Helicopter ($30) is here to change all that. Unlike most other small toy helicopters, which always fly forward and have ultra-sensitive controls, the Stealth features dual counter-rotating blades, three channels of directional control — up and down, left and right, and backwards and forwards — and solid controls to make sure you stay right on target.
