Atlas 250, Double the Goodness

Hey guys, so I just finished editing my Atlas Double Pack Unboxing. It’s really similar to the Single unboxing, but I think it’s still cool. If you like the Atlas or are interested in the unique ammo type, The double pack would be great for one on one battles with your friends, or carrying two single shot pistols like some sort of future pirate! :] The goggles are also really, really cool. I hope you enjoy, and don’t worry, plenty of non-unboxing stuff is on the way.

Cheers!

Vapor Atlas 250 Unboxing

Happy Halloween everyone! Here’s the latest video I’ve been working on; Vapor sent me this blaster a few weeks ago, but because of school I’ve just gotten around to it. Sorry guys! As for the blaster itself, I really like it! A lot! The Atlas 250 feels ergonomic in my hand, it looks awesome, and fires little balls of jelly at your friend 60 feet away! It’s sort of like a paintball pistol, but because the gelatin capsules it fires just evaporate away, ther’s no cleanup at all. Watch the video below for my unboxing and review of the Atlas 250.

Johnson Arms Sponsors HvZ Reloaded

For those of you who don’t know who Johnson Arms is, prepare for a lesson in The Art of Awesome. Brian Johnson is the owner and operator of Johnson Arms, a specialty aftermarket shop for Nerf (and other brands) blasters. Brian is VERY capable of taking an average blaster and completely tricking it out into a one-of-a-kind piece of art. And they aren’t just for show; What Brian produces is fully functional and is meant for battle. I’ll make a post following this one showing a few of his latest achievements, but this post focuses on what he’s whipped up for me. I think Brian threw in some gold dust, eagle feathers, some tech out of a James Bond movie, and a whooooole lotta talent into a cauldron (probably made from crystals from Superman’s Ice Fortress) to make me this; a custom Paladin Scope. Equipped with an extra knob to give it a sniper scope feel and an internal blue glow to scare the heck out of my opponents, this bad boy will be sitting atop my blaster for the entire HvZ Reloaded series. It isn’t 100% finished as of yet, but here ya’ go, bon appetit.

You can contact Johnson Arms about making your own custom blaster by emailing him at JohnsonArms76@gmail.com.

ShiningFoam Launches

Hey guys! So in case you didn’t know, I’ve been doing a lot of stuff in the background for the past month when I’ve had the chance, and I’ve just launched my new YouTube channel, ShiningFoam. The reason I made it is because I am now a product tester for NERF. I’ve already gotten my first package and am busily editing unboxings now. I have TONS of footage to sort through, but for now, I have five videos on the new channel. Here’s the Nerf Package Unboxing one. Hope you like it!

By the way, being a new channel it is still REALLY small, no matter how good the videos are. Help me grow! And if you like what you see, subscribe to keep in the loop. 😉

The ShiningFoam Armoury

What’s up Nation? Yesterday I published a video promising you an armory video (a few of you have been asking for one), and today I deliver! My Nerf collection is certainly smaller than some others, but it’s organized! :] I may be getting something else soon; if I do I’m sure you’ll find out, and if the armory changes a great deal I’ll make an update video. Hope you like it!

The Results are in! Shinies Wins! Also, get yo face on this blog! :D

What’s up mah shinies!?

A couple of weeks ago I published a poll asking you all what you would like to be called as a whole, sort of like the ShiningFoam team name. And a lot of you were really supportive of it! Thank you for that. :] So here are the results: While I got suggestions ranging from “potatoes” to “foamers” (I really wanna call BasicNerf potato head now *laughs*), most of the interest revolved around “The Shining Nation” and “Shinies”. And with a victory of only two votes… Shinies won. Now here’s where I twist things a little bit. I’m viewing you all as individual shinies, and collectively you form the Shining Nation. Does that make sense. Hope so.

Oh! I’ve also got a new page on this blog that is devoted to all the Shinies of the land! ALL the Shinies! In case you haven’t looked at it yet, the page is serving as a global phone book designed specifically to let Nerfers find others interested in the hobby and connect with them. I’ve already got the first member up, Qi from Singapore! Qi has sent me his picture, along with links to his Nerf sites, and now his pretty face is proudly displayed on the page as a member of the Shining Nation. Follow Qi’s example, and get featured on this site!

Email your photos of yourself playing with Nerf products, your first name(s), and any other information such as your email address, blog, YouTube channel, or even cell phone number (no house phones) to HvZAuburn@gmail.com. I’ll make a little synopsis for you and you’ll be displayed on the page! Easy as that! So come on and make some friends! ;D

The Final Hour // One hour long special

This is what I was doing yesterday. :] Several of my YouTube viewers had been requesting something less edited than my other videos, so I figured I’d go ahead and answer that request. In this hour long special, I take you through a whole game of HvZ. This game occurred about two or three weeks after the week long game. I ended up leaded the human forces against the undead, and had to teach them while we completed missions. I hope you enjoy it!
