Partners in Arms: Duke Cannon and World of Tanks Release “Big Ass Tank Soap”

May 27th, 2017

Men’s grooming brand enlists Wargaming to strengthen soap arsenal and offer fans in-game goods

WAYZATA, Minn. (May 18, 2017)- Duke Cannon Supply Co., a grooming company that targets hard-working gentlemen, is collaborating with Wargaming and their free-to-play, military inspired, team-based war strategy game, World of Tanks. Wargaming and Duke Cannon have joined forces to create a limited edition Big Ass Tank Soap, a must-have for true World of Tanks fans. The Big Ass Tank Soap is the newest combatant to Duke Cannon’s ‘Big Ass Brick of Soap’ line-up, bringing the game to life by winning the shower battle each and every day.

Duke Cannon will unveil the partnership through a limited edition run of 10,000 units of Big Ass Tank Soap, made in the classic ‘Smells Like Victory’ scent that Duke Cannon fans will appreciate. The war-ready soap weighs in at a hefty 10 oz., will feature iconic World of Tanks branding and offer a unique code that can be redeemed for $25.00 of in-game goods for new players. Proving Duke Cannon’s Big Ass Tank Soap is nearly worth its weight in gold. The Big Ass Tank Soap will be sold for $9.00 USD and will be available on Duke Cannon’s Online Store beginning May 19.

Duke Cannon’s military heritage makes WoT a natural fit with both brands carrying authentic military history. World of Tanks is played by over 160MM users worldwide, including men and women of all ages, many of whom enjoy the games with their sons or daughters, making this an ideal gift for “D.W.G.” or, “Dads Who Game” this Father’s Day.

“We’re thrilled to partner with World of Tanks, a brand that shares similar values and deep roots in military history,” said Duke Cannon Co-Founder Sam Swartz. “At Duke Cannon, we like to do things big and so do our customers. With over 160MM users worldwide, it’s hard to think of a bigger, better partner than World of Tanks as we take our first step into the world of gaming.”

In addition to the Big Ass Tank Soap, Duke Cannon has curated a Limited-Edition World of Tanks Ammo Can giftset which includes: Big Ass Tank Soap, Heavy Duty Hand Soap, Cold Shower Cooling Field Towels and Working Man’s Face Wash – all bundled up in one bad-ass authentic ammunition can. The gift set will feature a code good for $15.00 USD of in-game goods for new and existing players. Total value of the bundle is $100.00 USD, on sale for Father’s Day for $49.50 USD and can be purchased through Duke Cannon’s Online Store beginning May 19, with a guarantee to be delivered in time for Father’s Day if ordered by June 12.


“Wargaming is proud to team with a creative and charitable company like Duke Cannon to deliver these Father’s Day deals,” said Scott A. Steinberg, Wargaming’s head of business development. “When it comes to winning the war on stank, nothing hits harder than Big Ass Tank Soap.”

Gun Websites – Old West Guns – Playing Card Deck

May 26th, 2017

Old West Gun Playing Cards

Gun Websites has started a Kickstarter campaign for a deck of Old West Guns playing cards. Like the previous AK Playing Card Deck, the deck will feature various weapons from the ‘Old West’ era – period rifles, shotguns, revolvers, etc. Each card features a full color image, along with dates of production and additional info, such as the inventor, weapon’s nickname, barrel length, a life-size image of the ammunition the weapon was chambered for, and more. The classification of weapons will be separated via suits, which of course means these cards can also be used as a standard playing deck.

Fallout 4 Is Free This Weekend

May 25th, 2017

Fallout 4 isn’t perfect; it makes some lore inconsistencies when compared to previous games in the series, and sacrifices so much of the RPG and dialogue elements of Fallout games past for a more (arguably) simplified experience, but it’s a fine, enjoyable game on its own merits. That’s why, if you’re still on the fence about it (and you have a capable PC and/or an Xbox One), you can and should take advantage of the Fallout 4 Free Weekend, which started today and runs through the 28th.

The Fallout 4 Free Weekend is available on Steam and Xbox Live

As with all of their products, Salient Arms International rewrote the rules of 2011 style pistols when they manufactured the DS, forging a new trail and leaving old conventions behind, the end result is a pistol that functions in the harshest conditions, under the heaviest of stresses and provides service you can stake your life on.

    NERF Rival Apollo XV-700 Star Wars Mandalorian Edition Blaster And Face Mask

    May 20th, 2017

    I’m not the biggest fan of store exclusive variants, but GameStop is currently offering a pre-order for a NERFRival Apollo XV-700 Blaster with an exclusive Mandalorian paint job, and a matching mask.

    The NERF Rival line consists of various unique blasters that fire foam spheres rather than darts, and feed from translucent magazines. The Rival in the name comes from the fact that the blasters in the series are generally available in either solid blue or red colors, signifying opposite teams. While I would have liked to see a more Mandalorian-inspired face mask, all the same, this is a cool release if you’re into NERF and Star Wars.

    The release date for the Mandalorian Apollo XV-700 w/ Face Mask is November 17th of this year, coinciding with the release of ‘Star Wars: Battlefront 2’.

    You can pre-order the blaster at www.gamestop.com/collectibles/toys/nerf-rival-apollo-xv-700-star-wars-mandalorian-edition-blaster-and-face-mask-only-at-gamestop/147524.

    ‘Star Trek: Discovery’ And ‘The Orville’

    May 17th, 2017

    So, within a short time, we have both a Star Trek parody series, and an official return of Star Trek to television. I’m honestly more jazzed for The Orville, not so much because Seth MacFarlane is involved, but because it’s as close to a Galaxy Quest tv series we’re likely to see.

    Evolution Airsoft – TangoDown Enhanced Combat Rifle

    May 10th, 2017

    TangoDown® worldwide release
    Licensed by TangoDown, U.S.A., manufactured by Evolution Airsoft

    The TangoDown Enhanced Combat Rifle (ECR) is available as a Training Tool for MIL/LE and for the Milsim players.

    Evolution Airsoft, a leading manufacturer in the Airsoft Industry proudly annouces the worldwide release of the brand new line of air soft guns and accessories licensed by TangoDown Inc., U.S.A.

    Evolution Airsoft worked hard to deliver to the airsoft community one of the best and most realistic air soft guns ever made using only the best materials and state of the art manufacturing technology.

    As anticipated at the firearms international exhibition IWA2017, the newTangoDown air soft guns are equipped with an aluminum metal body with a peculiar surface treatment to increase its resistance to scratches: the aluminum surface was first hard anodized and then finished matte black to eliminate the typical shine of anodized metal. This is something never seen before on an air soft gun.

    As everybody expects from an air soft gun made by Evolution Airsoft the bolt catch and the dust cover are fully functional, the outer barrel is one piece cnc machined and anodize finished, the precision inner barrel is 6.03mmdiameter.
    The highest performances are grant by a metal hop up chamber loaded withsealing o-rings.

    The TangoDown guns are equipped with a new reinforced gearbox with fully removable spring guide that allows to change the spring without removing the gearbox from the body and with a built in MOSFET, which means a faster trigger response and no more carbonized trigger switch.

    The TangoDown guns belong to the Evolution Airsoft’s Hard Core Series, which means the best of the best and come with loads of TangoDown licensed accessories straight out of the box. All accessories are also sold as separate items and are compatible with any air soft gun on the market.
