Adventure Force – Navy SEAL Set

Friday, February 6th, 2015

Adventure Force

This is the Navy SEAL set as part of the Adventure Force series of toys. It comes with a surprisingly slick looking chest rig, a balaclava, a headset, two grenades, a knife, and an orange-and-green rifle with black camouflage splotches. When I get the chance, I’ll go pick one up at the local Walmart and give it a more detailed review.

Star Wars Humble Bundle

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015

If you’re not familiar with a Humble Bundle, it’s a collection of digital media, usually video games, literature, or movies, with a price point that is decided entirely by the purchaser. These bundles are available for a limited time, typically two weeks or so. Humble Bundles generally have a baseline offer that can be purchased at any price, including just $1, and feature incentive rewards, where higher paying customers who reach certain money milestones are offered more content. Additionally, many of these bundles have a charitable organization attached to them, and purchasers can choose how much of their donation goes to the charity, the game developers, and the Humble Bundle organization itself.

Humble Bundle

I bring this up because the current headlining Humble Bundle happens to be centered around Star Wars video games, a lot of good Star Wars video games. This time, the charitable organization is the U.S. Fund for UNICEF, partnered with Star Wars Force for Change. Only $12 will net you what is currently $115 worth of Star Wars games to be played on your PC, it’s going towards a good cause (your donation can even go 100% to UNICEF if you want it to), and there’s a good chance that even more games will be added to the donation incentives, which you retroactively get if you donate early.

SHOT Show 2015 – Magpul – Dyed Magazines

Sunday, February 1st, 2015


In case you didn’t know, Magpul introduced the new Sand color for their M3 PMAGs. These new mags are not only stronger than the original black M3 PMAGs, but they’re also much more receptive to water-based dye processes, allowing for a greater range of colors. Over at the Magpul booth, Jon Canipe was kind enough to line up the dye jobs they came up with just in time for the show. I gotta say that the pink came out pretty damn good.
