Top o' the mornin' to ye, Giant Bomb community! Long time no see.

I made these and I thought you all might appreciate them. I've been meaning to do this for a year and never had the motivation, until one day I just said, "Fuck it! Let's do this thang." and here we are! I experimented on the Nerf Raider first because it doesn't function that great, so if I screwed up who cares. Turns out I didn't! Anyway look!

Nerf Raider Before:

Raider After:

The finish is dry and smooth, took a lot of patience and light coats of Krylon Fusion. Clear coated to lock in freshness ;)

And then there was the MEGA MAGNUS. One of the most badass Blasters that Nerf makes. It fires MEGA darts.



I'm gonna do a buttload of these. If I forget to post them here, follow me on Instagram at @Turbo_Toaster and my twitter is still @TurboToaster.

Love you miss you GB Community. Till next time, keep fit and have fun!

Edit: Finished making my listings!

The original RE is the only kind of tacky I will accept in this household.

However the GC remake was delicious and I really want to play it again someday.

Man, I haven't been here in awhile. I miss Quests too. I wish I could have had more say in what we did with them and like...maybe given them more of a point and had real prizes or subscription bonuses for the top dudes. I wonder where all my art went. =S

Giant Bomb content needs considerably more Silly Wigs, imo.

ILU Vinny. It must not be easy for you guys to part but we've all seen your friendships forge over the years, the bond is strong and will sustain you between conventions and other things you'll see each other at! Now, I look forward to how awesome Giant Bomb East is going to be. If anyone can do it, you can.

May your move be smoooooth like Carlos Santana feat. Rob Thomas!

That's amazing. He used to call me 'Little Sister" which kinda makes this really surreal as if things weren't surreal enough. That's really cool.

The part I really enjoyed was when Phil was staring into that old program like when he was a kid. I think we all did stuff like that, it was cute and honest. Phil wears his heart on his sleeve for good or ill. I don't know much about what happened recently so I can't speak to that or have any opinion, but I do think he is very talented. He takes everyone's thoughts about him to heart which can make him better at what he does but also it contributes to his bitter view on the world, which in turn...doesn't help matters. Again, not knowing much about anything other than my own observations, I would suggest that he;

A.) Be open to criticism and

B.) Pick trusted individuals or mature groups to tell him the truth

Criticism and being able to handle criticism is essential for any creative person to succeed. It fucking sucks, but them's the breaks. If he lets everything in from every knob on the internet, it's a road to absolutely nowhere.

Aside from that I got super emotional during the backstory segments for Edmund McMillen. I'm really happy for him and his partner. All around I love Indie Game: The Movie. I hope there are more as the years go on and the indie scene evolves.
