A Remedy to plastic problems

In the NIC, we are lucky to have brilliant minds marry up with design and innovation. People who rather complain about a problem, set out on a journey to create a solution. Who are these unsung heroes to a growing audience?

Specialist Blaster Hobby Kits have taken Stock blasters and breathed a life of high end performance - much in demand for many Mod enthusiasts.

So without further ado, I've been lucky enough to take catch the maker of Remedy Metal on a coffee break for a little chat :)

Modders - a Remedy to your plastic problems!

Remedy Metal - Metal Magic Kits at it's finest

I was recently contacted by Joshua, creator of 'Remedy Metal - The metallic solution to plastic problems ™' who received a number of emails after I posted up my article on tips and advice for bloggers on how to create, run and maintain their blog - from modders wanting to sample review his kits. He was happy that he was made aware of modders he didn't know of and some of these sites showed a lot of promise he is following them closely.

Joshua took the time out to write up a little guide on what he expects from modders contacting Remedy Metal, and what it takes to work with him on product sample reviews:

Review: Nerf Vortex Pyragon - oh boy, what a blast :D

About time I got this done! I have got to say this straight off - I have never had so much fun unloading a blaster let alone a drum operated one! The rush of slam-firing is such a rush :)

Without further ado, I give you the current stock flagship of Nerf Vortex - the Pyragon :D

No stock *grumble*

There's a new Tek on the block

This is something I have been following closely since the New York Toy Fair 2013.
A lot of followers have emailed me to ask what I think, will I pick it up and test it out?
-- but before I can answer that, there are a few things I need to find out...

Nerf Super Soaker X-Treme TV commercial

Nerf Super Soaker X-Treme TV commercial just rolled out, promo'ing their Super Soaker range:

I'm seriously tempted to pick one Switch Shot up (mainly for the stock to chop and change on my Vortex Pyragon and Diatron blasters - but then again why not a Lightning Strike if I want a white-out stock?).

Why it shouldn't be Nerf or Nothin'

"I have a Dream!" Martin Luther King, Jr

This is something a little different from what I normally post, and it's a bit of a wall of text :) I'll get to the point of the Martin Luther King, Jr reference later, but I'm writing this post in part because I'm getting a lot of emails and messages, asking advice and tips on starting a blog.

Most bloggers are unaware of what commercial and professional power they potentially have at their finger tips, and in time I hope this changes. So where to start? The beginning is a good place :)
