I'm Not Dead, Just Busy

As much as I hate making personal posts, I thought I would explain a my absence.

Some of you may have noticed a distinct lull in posts from me recently. There has been lots of exciting news in the nerf world but unfortunately I have been too busy to cover it.

Whilst I love nerf, unfortunately it doesn't pay the bills. For that I have to go away on tour for extended periods of time.

Yes, by day I am a pyrotechnician, supplying special effects for concerts and the like all around the world. I am currently out supporting 'Girls Aloud' for their new tour which will whisk me around the UK and Ireland for the next 5 weeks.

I will try to keep my hand in as much as I can but working 18 hour days and sleeping in a tour buss all night doesn't leave a lot of room for hobbies. Hopefully BurntCustard and MerryUnBirthday will be able to keep you entertained whilst I'm away blowing stuff up.

Nerf Blazin' Bow and Revonix360 Videos

The guys over at The Toy Spy have posted a video of the new Nerf blasters, released at the 2013 New York Toy Fair.

Both the Blazin' Bow and the Vortex Revonix360 look awesome. Check them out.

I must say, I'm really liking the new look to the Vortex range. Very nice.

Orange Mod Works - Immortal Kit Review

I received my Immortal kit a while ago, but what with work commitments and a 2 year old boy to look after, I haven't had the time to do anything with it. Luckily for me, my good friend Nerfshack has posted this review on the Britnerf forum and he has kindly let me post it here.

The 2013 UK Toy Fair - Nerf Licenced Products

This year, we will be seeing a lot of nerf products hitting the shelves, and not just from Hasbro.

There are a lot of other companies that will be releasing products under the nerf brand due to licencing agreements. We've all seen some of these products before (the nerf night vision goggles, released back in 2011 to name but one), but there are some new gadgets on the way.

News from Hasbro. Some Good, Some Bad.

Speaking to the guys at Hasbro, we managed to gleam some good information. My Last Dart has already given us the answers to many of the questions posed by the NIC, (big thanks for that fella) but there were a couple of others I wanted to pose.
