Adam Savage Turned A NERF Rival Nemesis Into A 1,000 Shot Beast

You know. I am actually glad that Adam Savage is done with Mythbuster. Why? Because, it is only then we get to see him getting the time to building and modding stuff that wows us. The latest build, a custom 1,000 Shot NERF Rival Nemesis, really had me drooling all over. For the uninitiated, the original NERF Rival Nemesis is good for 100 shot before needing to reload. Given that it is an automatic NERF blaster, 100 shot is hardly enough for a serious NERF skirmish. Continue reading Adam Savage Turned A NERF Rival Nemesis Into A 1,000 Shot Beast

Oh, Look, Green Army Men Toys Ditched Weapons In Favor Of Yoga!

I am sure everyone here is familiar with the green army men – especially those who grew up in the 80s. If not, Pixar’s Toy Story should ring a bell because they were in the franchise too. Green army men are hardly action figures.

So, yeah, the Yoga Joes Green Army Men Toy are a thing. Continue reading Oh, Look, Green Army Men Toys Ditched Weapons In Favor Of Yoga!
