Build It, Then Eat It

Building A Magic Choc Ghost - White Chocolate and Dark Chocolate

One of the huge drawbacks many construction toys face is that they are inedible. Sensing a gap in the market place, Magic Choc allows you to build whatever you want out of chocolate, then eat it. Magic Choc may also be a very constructive treat to give out on Halloween. Take the guess work out of deciding what chocolate Trick-or-Treaters want to eat and instead let them build it themselves using the moldable chocolate material. Happy Halloween and happy building (and eating)!

Disney Follows In Voltron’s Steps With Chogodai King Robo Mickey & Friends

Bandai Disney Chogodai King Robo Mickey & Friends Chogokin

Taking inspiration from Super Robot manga and anime, Bandai and Disney have come together to create a Chogodai King Robo Mickey & Friends. Announced on October 22nd, the component character figures of the Chogodai King Robo Mickey & Friends combine, Voltron style to form a Chogodai (super unit). There does not appear to be a back story behind the giant robot but it certainly shows that Disney is willing to be quite creative with the use of some its most prominent characters.

 Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Pluto

Standing roughly  8.6 inches tall, the chogokin (diecast) giant robot features individual component figures of Mickey, Minnie, Donald, Daisy, Goofy, and Pluto (who also comes with a dog house). Steamboat Willie serves as the head of the giant robot, while behind each visor sits the character that the component figure is modeled after. The Chogodai King Robo Mickey & Friends is slated for a March, 2013 release will be priced at ¥13,440, or roughly $169.
