Mayan Countdown Clock – on your marks…. get set for the end of the world


London, August 2012:  So, that’s your lot. London 2012 is done and dusted; the Olympics are unlikely to grace these shores again in your lifetime. Post-Olympic Depression is everywhere and set to get worse once the Paralympics are but a distant memory – and there’s nary a royal wedding or jubilee in 2013 to offset the misery.

Enter the Mayan Countdown Clock from one of our suppliers, thumbsUp!. If the Mayans were right, the end of the world is fast approaching….. so at least we have the apocalypse to look forward to! And what a year for Britain to go out on! As you are ticking off the seconds until 21 December 2012 – when the ancient civilisation claimed the world would come to an end – you can hold onto the fact that the Olympics and 2012 is what we will be remembered for when the Earth falls out of the sky.

Of course, there’s a slight possibility that the Mayan calculations are off – so handily the Mayan Countdown Clock can be reset to countdown to any key event you’ve got coming up. Like Rio 2016, which is just 1,451 days away…

The Mayan Countdown Clock is available early September from for £9.99.

The Dark Knight Rises…only took him four years. NEW IN statues, perfect for any bat fan

The Dark Knight has returned, out in cinemas TODAY! It took him four years to get here and we can hardly believe it’s been seven years since Batman Begun (Begins- whatever.)The Dark Knight, the third and final part of Christopher Nolan’s acclaimed trilogy has been considered the most anticipated film of the sequel, at nearly three hours it’s the longest film of the three. The first hour is spent tying up a few loose ends from the last film. One review reads “It might also contain the best movie ending in recent memory.” The suspense is killing us. We propose an IWOOT team trip to ‘The Dark Knight Rises’ immediately. You can cope without us for 164 minutes, right?

So…onto the good stuff. We’re about to show you every damn thing you can buy for The Dark Knight Rises… all the stuff we could get our grubby little hands on anyway. Unveiled at the Toy Fair 2012 we bring you Dark Knight Rises figurines. Available in Bane, Batman and Cat woman the BRAND NEW highly detailed statues capture the likeness of the characters like they’ve just stepped out of the film. (We know a few guys in the office that wouldn’t mind if Anne Hathaway jumped out of the screen.) Ranging from £69.99 to £109.99 these busts, 1:6 and 1:12 scale statues are perfect for any bat man. Ooops we mean bat fan. Check them out here:



Here’s what happens…for those of you that don’t like a spoiler- look away now.

Eight years after the events of The Dark Knight, Gotham City is in a state of peace. Under powers granted by the Dent Act, Commissioner Jim Gordon has nearly eradicated violent and organized crime. However, he still feels guilty about the cover-up of Harvey Dent’s crimes. At a function celebrating Dent, he plans to admit to the conspiracy, but decides that the city is not ready to hear the truth. While following a lead in the abduction of a senator from the function, Gordon’s speech falls into the hands of terrorist leader Bane. Gordon is shot in the process, and he promotes patrol officer John Blake to detective, allowing Blake to report directly to him.

As Batman has disappeared from Gotham City, so too has Bruce Wayne, locking himself inside Wayne Manor. Wayne Enterprises is crumbling after he invested in a clean energy project designed to harness fusion power, but shut the project down after learning that the core could be modified to become a nuclear weapon. Bruce suspects that his business rival, John Daggett, has employed Bane to aid in an aggressive take-over of the company. When he attempts to intervene in an attack on the city’s stock exchange, Bruce comes into conflict with Alfred Pennyworth over his plans to return to the streets of the city as Batman. Alfred finally admits that Rachel Dawes chose to marry Dent, and leaves Bruce’s service in an attempt to convince him that he can no longer be Batman.

Following a trail left by cat burglar Selina Kyle, Batman confronts Bane, who says that he assumed the leadership of the League of Shadows following the death of Ra’s al Ghul. Bane kills Daggett and reveals that he was using Daggett’s construction firms to stage a heist on Wayne Enterprises’ Applied Science Division. He steals Bruce’s arsenal before crippling Batman and detaining him in a prison from which escape is virtually impossible. The other inmates relate the story of the only person to ever successfully escape from the prison, a child driven by necessity and the sheer force of will.

Bane lures the Gotham police department underground and sets off a chain of explosions across the city, trapping the officers underground and turning Gotham City into an isolated city-state. Any attempt to leave the city will result in the detonation of the Wayne Enterprises fusion core, which has been converted into a bomb. Addressing the citizens, Bane reveals the cover-up of Dent’s death, and releases the prisoners locked up under the Dent Act. The rich and powerful are dragged from their homes and put before a show trial presided over by Jonathan Crane, where they are given the choice between death or exile, and the city further regresses into a state of anarchy. After an attempt to sneak Special Forces soldiers into the city disguised as aid workers ends with the soldiers hung from a bridge for the world to see, the government blockades Gotham.

Meanwhile, Bruce retrains himself to be Batman and successfully escapes Bane’s prison to return to Gotham. He enlists Selina, Blake, and Lucius Fox’s help in liberating the people of the city and stopping the fusion bomb. Batman confronts Bane, but Miranda Tate intervenes as she reveals herself to be Talia al Ghul. It was she, not Bane, who escaped the prison as a child, and Bane was permanently scarred as he tried to help her. Gordon successfully cuts off the bomb’s ability for remote detonation and Selina kills Bane, allowing Batman to chase Talia. He tries to force her to take the bomb to the fusion chamber, where it can be stabilized, but she remotely floods the chamber. Batman shoots her truck off the road and she dies in the resulting crash, confident that the bomb cannot be stopped. Using a helicopter developed by Fox, Batman hauls the bomb beyond the city limits, where it detonates over the ocean.

In the aftermath of the explosion, the world believes Batman to be dead and Bruce to have been one of the casualties of the riot. As his estate is divided up, Alfred witnesses Bruce and Selina together alive in a cafe in Italy, while Blake inherits the Batcave.

The new App Gear toys that interact with downloadable apps! Cool!? Yes, we know.

If you haven’t heard of these yet, where have you been? Gaming reality just got way more awesome with AppGear, a mobile app technology that will give you the ultimate gaming experience. Remember when we once all thought the ultimate gaming experience was a piece of string and a conker? How things change eh? We’re a million (maybe even a trillion) miles away from that now.

Recently toys and electronics have converged to create a fun and engaging way to utilise the newest technology such as smartphone and tablets. A couple of years ago we could have argued that toys would take a backseat to the influx of awesome gadgets and apps we had suddenly available to us – now they enhance it. Everyone loves a happy ending.

So what do they actually do? We hear you say. AppGear is an innovative line of apps that interact with collectible toys, which attach to your smartphone to enable gaming interaction. Take 3D cinema as a rather poor example, you’re watching the film yet you feel like you’re in the film, with App Gear you’re playing the game and you feel like you’re in the game- a beautiful mixture of fantasy and reality.

The range of AppGear games can be played on an iPhone, iTouch, iPad or Android device and is FREE (yes, free) to download. Waheey! App Gear brings gaming to reality and is anticipated to be the best new tech in 2012.

App Gear is recommended for ages 9+ but the games are definitely not restricted to kids. There’s plenty of scope for adult App Gear addicts too.  At IWOOT HQ, Josh (our resident Merchandiser) cannot be beaten at Zombie Burbz, we’ve bet our lunch money plenty of times and had to go hungry.

You can expect to see a lot more of this blending of real-world toys and digital apps in the years ahead, especially with more children having access to devices. Check out the stats below…

– 52% of children own their own app capable device (68% of 6-8s, 32% of 3-5s)

– 8% of children own their own iPhone (11% other app capable smart phones)

– 20% have an iPod Touch (12% of 3-5 year olds)

– 9% have their own iPad (6% of 3-5 year olds

We genuinely think App Gear is totally awesome but don’t just take our word for it…AppGear was first presented at The Toy Fair 2012 and received a fantastic reaction. Jason Bradbury, presenter on the Gadget Show took to Twitter to share his excitement tweeting “Wowwee getting into seriously fun app/toys with AppGear.” He’s not the only one, check out reviews from MSN online and Easier Technology below.

“Best tech toy for 2012” MSN online

“AppGear wows Toy Fair as best new tech” Easier Technology

Fancy a nosey? We now have Zombie Burbz and Foam Fighters in stock ranging from £9.99 to £12.99, they’re available here
