Bandai is bringing back those 1980s transforming egg-creatures (think Meteorbs), this time focusing on Ultraman characters (“Ultra-Egg”). I never understood the appeal of those transforming egg toys.

Gears!, K’Nex, Krinkles (Bristle Blocks), Lincoln Logs, Tinkertoys, Zome, and Zoob. Unfortunately, it appears you’ve got to print the things out yourself with a 3D printer. Side […]
