Hasbro finally gets past the countless iterations of Din Djarin and Boba Fett’s helmets with a full-size replica of Bo-Katan Kryze’s Mandalorian armor helmet being added to The Black Series.

Lego Majestic Tiger

Given all the chaos in the world, it’s hard to fuss over a controversy over Lego, but the company has finally released its new Creator 3-in-1 Majestic Tiger set on its website which will be officially available for $50 from January 1. The 755-piece set includes instructions to build a red panda, koi fish, and tiger, but it’s the latter option that has raised some red flags with Lego fans because as an early review of fan blog Brickset revealed at least one anatomically correct feature of the big cat: a pink Lego flower arrangement intentionally positioned on his derriere. As far as we know this is the first Lego set with an anus, but will it be the last?
