The most reviled toy in the entire toy box at daycare way back in the day was the Jack-in-the-Box. It played creepy music, and you never knew when that clown bastard would pop out. If you have kids and want to scare the crap out of them in a way that a standard Jack-in-the-Box can’t, this is the toy for you.
This is Mezco Toyz’ Nightmare on Elm Street Freddy Krueger Burst Box. The metal box has images of that knife-fingered nut Freddy on the outside. Spin the green handle and ol’ Fred will pop out with that snazzy red and green sweater, hat, and mincemeat face.
You can pre-order one now for $42.99 at Entertainment Earth with shipping starting in November 2019.
The Bob Ross posthumous merchandising craze continues. Yes, Bob Ross The Joy of Cereal is an actual breakfast cereal with marshmallows inside. The cereal appears to be a Lucky Charms ripoff with oat squares and happy little marshmallows. Lucky Charms might have a leprechaun, but the Joy of Cereal has a dude with an afro who never makes mistakes, only happy little trees.
You can get a box of this collectible cereal from FYE right here. That’s kind of pricey for a box of rebadged Lucky Charms, but it’s got Bob Ross on it, and is sure to make your morning super chill and positive, especially with the cut-out “Positivity Paint Palette” on back.
It’s too bad there’s not a prize inside the box. The Bob Ross Funko POP! figure would be a perfect pack-in.

I’m not sure there is a really a difference between a panini and a toasted sandwich. What I do know is when you have a hankering for a grilled cheese with some geek flare, this Star Wars Imperial panini press is the ticket. You can make two toasty (and evil) sandwiches at a time.
One side embellishes your bread with Darth Vader’s helmet, while the other one makes an impression of a stormtrooper’s helmet. The product description says that you can make waffles or brownies with this thing too. I’ve never heard of making brownies on this sort of contraption.
You can cook eggs in it too. Some scrambled eggs with Lord Vader on them sound good right about now. The Star Wars Imperial panini press is available at ThinkGeek for $39.99.

Office Space was a fantastic flick. I particularly loved the scene where they beat the stuffing out of the hated laser printer that always says PC LOAD LETTER. Now, Funko has immortalized the main characters of Mike Judge’s classic comedy with their own POP! vinyl figures.
The Peter Gibbons action figure hasn’t really been missing work. All three figures are available from ThinkGeek for $12.99 each.

Microsoft has a deal going on right now for people who haven’t yet tried Xbox Game Pass. You can sign up for 90 days of service for just a buck. Yep, one simoleon, one donut, one single. You get the idea.
The sale is going on until May 12, and once the first 90 days is over and you are hooked, the Game Pass will continue at $10 per month. The service gives you unlimited access to over a hundred Xbox games, including Forza Horizon 4, Sea of Thieves, Gears of War 4, Halo 5: Guardians, and more.
Sure most of them will be stuff you have no interest in, but you can try all these games and decide if you like them for only a buck. Few things sting as bad as plunking down $60 for a game you realize you hate two levels in.
