Nerfcast Episode 26: $5 Cheaper

Josh, Shawn and B.F.U. discuss a wide range of topics. News about the Magnus release leads to discussion of  the newly released Perpetual Play Zombiestrike bandanna. Josh looses his "Nerf Hipster" card, but gets it back before Shawn can steal it for good. A big shout out to some 3rd party Nerf accessories and gear creators, as well as a quick review of the Golden Eagle bow. B.F.U. has another Reddit rant, and everyone gets to feel old when talking about cartoons. Remember, everything is better when it's $5 cheaper.

Zombiestrike Bandanna

Where do I begin? In the past I've been pretty pleased with Perpetual Play's Nerf products. Even if there are a few things here or there I'd change, I generally give them a bit of leeway considering this is their first run at things. I don't know what they have on hand to work with or what their entire agreement with Hasbro entails.  It's usually not perfect, but I figure they'll get better as time goes on. I won't say I wasn't interested in this particular product. The idea that there was going to be a official Nerf branded bandanna, presumably for use in HvZ events, sounded fantastic. It really showed they were embracing the sport. Needless to say I was pretty disappointed.
The front of the package, feel that squishy Z-bomb!

Nerfcast Episode 25: Ultra Magnus

In this episode of Nerfcast Josh, Shawn and B.F.U. discuss a myriad of topics. The standard Nerf news includes discussion about the Mega Magnus, and Zombie Strike lineup, before moving on to discussion of Coop's newest [NERF CHAT].  There's a Reddit
rant as well as some discussion of Nerfing safety and public awareness a la the Missouri State University ban. It wraps up with a short discussion about giving back to the community, and not just the Nerf ones either!
