NECA Reel Toys – Rambo Action Figure

Tuesday, March 17th, 2015

IMG_3381

This is a 7″ Rambo Action Figure released by NECA as part of the Reel Toys line. Confusingly, despite being part of the ‘Reel Toys’ line, it’s actually a special version which pays homage to the 8-bit NES Rambo video game, and comes in special packaging that mimics the original game box. To this end, Rambo comes complete with orange-colored bandana, pants, and boots, and a stylized paint job. His accessories include a bow and arrows, combat knife with sheath, hand grenade, and RPG.

Unfortunately, this one’s going to remain SIB for the foreseeable future, but I did manage to scrounge up a product image so you know what the figure looks like.

Sabertron: Foam Swords With Electronic Scoring

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

Think laser tag, but with foam swords, and you have a pretty good idea with Sabertron is all about. Sabertron employs an accelerometer to detect when and what the sword has impacted. Wireless communication between blades shares this information, which in turn tells the blade when a player has lost health, measured by LED light strips on the handle. The core of the blade is made of ultra-durable polycarbonate plastic, being near indestructible while weighing less than a pound with the foam blade cover. Currently up for funding on Kickstarter, they’ve (unsurprisingly) already reached their goal, but contributing opens up special deals and pricing as usual.

Magnum Enterprises – Jr. AK-47 Combat Rubber Band Gun

Sunday, May 11th, 2014

20140511-181659.jpg

I picked up this vaguely Kalashnikov-esque rubber band gun at a shop near the boardwalk today. The back up rear sight and sling is a nice touch, and it shoots rubber bands pretty damn well. They also had a pistol on display, but how could I resist the call of the long gun?
