EpikPanda is a line of panda-themed morale patches, a few of which are garbed in popular comic character uniforms. Seen above is my personal favorite, the PMC Panda patch, which is heavily inspired by the Q Concepts Boba Fett Crye Precision AirFrame helmet.

I’ve been holding onto this image for a while. It’s from the Agents of SHIELD show, when HYRDA revealed themselves. In true supervillain organization fashion, they just had to put their logo on the Plate Frame.

ThinkGeek – Tactical Holiday Stocking

November 20th, 2014

1687_tactical_holiday_stocking

Leave it to ThinkGeek to come up with something like a ‘Tactical Stocking’. Made from “Heavy Duty Nylon”, the all-black tactical stocking features PALS webbing, carabiners, quick-release buckles, a top handle, a Velcro panel, bi-directional side zipper, and a small, external pouch.

If it were in some kind of Christmas-themed camo, and they lost everything but the PALS webbing, external pouch, and the Velcro panel, I might actually want one.

Put Out The Vibe Patch and Sticker

Just in time for the new Dumb & Dumber flick that released today, Violent Little Machine Shop is offering their brand-new ‘Put Out The Vibe’ patch as well as a sticker.

(I Can’t Belive It’s Not) MultiCam Monday – Army Commando Costume

November 10th, 2014

For this (I Can’t Believe It’s Not) MultiCam Monday, we’re reposting an old classic from three years ago. Why is it always during Halloween that the MultiCam ripoffs come out of the woodwork?

Available at Target, the boy’s Army Command Costume consists of two pieces, the uniform and helmet. It’s made from 70% polyester and is available in small, medium and large sizes. My favorite aspect of this costume is the ‘Army’ tag; it’s a nice touch that lets other people know: “Yes, I am pretending to be an Army Commando this fine Halloween’s night. Candy, please!” There’s also something familiar about the camouflage that I can’t quite put my finger on…

Too Many Cooks

November 7th, 2014

I’m far from adverse when it comes to sharing Adult Swim programming on this website, although this one might be a bit ‘out of left field’. Just remember when watching it:

1) It’s extremely surrealist humor
2) You’re doing yourself no favor if you don’t watch the whole thing
3) If you have to skip ahead, it picks up around the 4 minute mark

Baskin-Robbins Offers Camouflage Ice Cream In Honor Of Veterans Day

November 6th, 2014

Camouflage Ice Cream

In honor of Veterans Day, Baskin-Robbins is offering the limited ‘First Class Camouflage’ flavor through the month of November. It is a combination of Chocolate, Caramel, and Vanilla Cake flavors, making up respectively the brown, tan, and green colorway of the ice cream. Along with ‘First Class Camouflage’, Baskin-Robbins is also offering a camouflage waffle cone, and the First Class Camouflage Layered Sundae, which adds hot fudge, caramel praline, chopped OREO cookie pieces, and whipped cream to the mix.

Additionally, on Veterans Day, Baskin-Robbins will donate 10 cents from each scoop of ice cream sold at its US locations to the USO.

As far as flavoring, it’s not too bad. The caramel is definitely the dominate flavor, and the vanilla tastes pretty sweet. The cone, a standard sugar waffle cone, was a nice touch.
