Let Guru del Toro be your guide into the darkest depths of fantasy! This designer toy by artist Chogrin honors the Maestro of Monsters, who holds countless universes in his hands, claws, and tentacles.

Nintendo And LEGO Group Are Reinventing Play With Launch of LEGO Super Mario

The LEGO Group announced a partnership with Nintendo that will change the way people interact with Super Mario in the physical world and engage in LEGO experiences. 

Both companies share a passion for innovation and play and their collaboration has led to a reimagination of the LEGO building experience, enabling an entirely new way to play inspired by the beloved video game icon, Super Mario.

Neither a video game nor a traditional LEGO brick-based set, LEGO Super Mario is a new product line that features an interactive LEGO Mario figure who collects coins in real-life game levels created with LEGO bricks. The new line will let kids experience the playful world of Super Mario like never before. Super Mario will be brought to life in the physical LEGO world and new levels of challenge and styles of play will be part of the iconic LEGO experience enjoyed by generations. 

LEGO Super Mario will launch later this year.

Rare Hot Wheels Chevrolet Camaro Could Be Worth Over $100,000

A true one-off and the third rarest of all Hot Wheels cars, this Chevrolet Camaro prototype was just recently discovered. It was found in a set of other Hot Wheels cars by self-proclaimed Toy Scout Joel Magee, known for his appearances on Pawn Stars and at collectible events. 

The Camaro toy dates back to 1968 and, as with all early prototypes, was given its enamel white paint in order to check for imperfections. Very few prototypes made it to retail, and this one is even more rare thanks to its Hong Kong-stamped chassis. 

“I’ve collected toys forever and this Hot Wheels Camaro is the Holy Grail of collectibles,” Magee said. “I am beyond excited to have found it to add to my vast collection. This car is so extremely rare that there is only one known example which is this one. Imagine something that originally sold for 59 cents now being worth upwards of $100,000! Wow!”

Magee intends to add his new Hot Wheels Camaro prototype to his collection, which he takes with him around the country to fairs, media appearances, appraisal events and toy events.
