The folks at Dumpbox are big fans of Top Gun, so in celebration of the film they’ve produced a patch and sticker set depicting the “Holy S*** It’s Viper” scene from the film.

For those who don’t know, Roderick “Roddy” George Toombs, better known by his professional name Rowdy Roddy Piper, passed away in his sleep yesterday in his Hollywood home. Although TFB has some knowledge of his wrestling career, we know him best for his ionic role as John Nada in the 1988 sci-fi classic, They Live. As such, we’re reposting one of many iconic scenes from that film, and in our opinion the greatest fight scene ever put to cinema:
Dumpbox is selling a run of ‘Welcom To Aloha Snackbar’ patches. Offered in Full Color, the patch is PVC with Velcro hook backing. Only 95 were made, so get on these while you can.
Primer Projects has taken their ‘1 in the Chamber design, and put it on a t-shirt, as well as a blackout patch.
Happy 4th of July! Enjoy the festivities, and remember, if you’re going to shoot, keep it pointed down range.

In honor of ‘May the 4th’, Violent Little Machine Shop is offering the Imperial Express morale patch set. Modeled after a certain credit card design, the Imperial Express patches feature four iconic Star Wars characters: Darth Vader, Boba Fett, C-3P0, and, everybody’s favorite Stormtrooper, TK-421.

Inspired by Prometheus Design Werx’s line of Kraken patches, and designed for Christine the Fett of Force Girls, the Boba Octopus patch is embroidered, with Velcro hook backing. I recently picked one of these up when I was down at the Double Tap Surplus Grand Reopening. It’s a great patch, and is a good choice for fans of galactic bounty hunters and celephapods alike.
The latest patch from Primer Projects, the ‘1 In The Chamber’ is a PVC patch, sized 2.12″ x 3″. It features a United States flag inspired design, and is Velcro backed.

A few days ago, I posted a link to a Kickstarter campaign for a double-edge safety razor made by a Veteran-owned business called Coxswain USA. I was sent a model for review purposes, my experiences with which you can read below.
What’s unique about the Vulcan is spent .50 BMG casings are used for the handle. All components of the Vulcan are chrome plated, and Coxswain USA developed a specialized slug adapter to mate the handle to the razor plates.
The safety razor itself comes fully assembled, without any DE blades. All disassembly requires is to screw the razor plates off. The plates are designed to accept most standard DE razor blades. At 4.3 oz it has a good weight to it, and the chrome coating offers a nice, clean look.
I figured the best way to actually review the Vulcan was to actually shave with it. I went to closest chain drug store, picked up some DE razor blades, and gave it a whirl. The weight of the razor really helped with the shaving, and it offered a smooth, clean shave. This picture was taken about halfway through my shave. I did end up nicking myself a tiny bit, but that was entirely my own fault.
Overall, I’ve had a very good experience with the Vulcan Razor. It shaves well, the repurposed .50 BMG casing offers a unique flair, and it’s made by a Veteran-owned business. If you’re interested in picking one up for yourself, you can check out the ongoing Kickstarter campaign, and also check out Coxswain USA’s website. Both links are below.
Coxswain USA is a Veteran-owned business which has developed a safety razor made using spent .50 cal brass, which is chrome plated and used as the handle. A specialized ‘slug adapter’ was developed to mate the razor to the handle, and the razor accepts many double-edge razor blades.
Violent Little Machine Shop has made available the Relinquish U R Fate charity patch. Made in support of ART 15’s Relinquish U R Fate Vet Fund Drive, each patch is selling for $10 a piece, with only 100 patches available. 100% of the purchase price are going to benefit the Relinquish U R Fate funding campaign. VLMS already sold about a 1/4 of their stock, so if you’re looking at getting a patch, you’re better off ordering ASAP.
The Relinqish U R Fate Vent Fund Drive is a charity funding campaign started up by the ART 15 crew post-SHOT Show. They are currently trying to raise $15,000 for three charities: Gallant Few, Raider Project, and All In All The Time Foundation. The ‘Relinquish U R Fate’ portion of the fund comes into play should the funding goal be met by March 1st, 2015:
1. Mat Best will shave his beard into a “Dale Comstock” mustache.
2. JT will be tazed by an X-26 Tazer.
3. Rocco will receive a Ranger Up tattoo.
Available exclusively on Teespring.com, this Holiday-themed design features a modern AR-15, four common pistols (from left: Glock, M9, Hi-Power, 1911), and rows of cartridges, intermixed with reindeer, snowmen, snowflakes, and Christmas trees. Available in a variety of colors, but only the green truly completes the Holiday-standard Red/Green/White colorway that’s so closely tied with the season. Only available until December 11th, so get yours while you can!

Did you have a good Turkey day? Tell us about it in the comment section. Oh, and enjoy this completely unrelated clip from the greatest gangster movie never made:
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.
After the success of the ‘Fight Crime Shoot Back’ patch, Primer Projects is back on Kickstarter with the new ‘Metal Mouth’ design, which consists of the silhouettes of common firearms cartridges shaped into a gaping mouth.
Like ‘Fight Crime Shoot Back’, ‘Metal Mouth’ will be available in patch form. Specifically, a 3.25″ embroidered patch with Velcro hook backing and a merrowed border.
However, Primer Projects will also be offering the ‘Metal Mouth’ design printed on a tri-blend (50/25/25 Poly/Cotton/Rayon) American Apparel Short Sleeve Track Shirt, which will be available in Black in sizes XS-2XL.
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. Immortalizing the classic Icelandic Snow Owl Benefit scene (y’know, the one with the tuxedos?), the design is printed on a PVC patch and a weather tough sticker. The patch comes with an art card, and both the patch and sticker can be purchased separately or as a package deal.
