I hope all have had a blessed memorial day.

CapShield05I’d like to express my thanks to all who are giving in service to this country, and all who have given including the ultimate price. It’s obvious i have a love for the ideas of U.S. when i created the site both the original toy nation a decade ago, and the new version and the Nerd Nation it has become. I am deepy thankful for those who have paid the price for the freedoms I enjoy. While this holiday is intended to honor those who have fallen, i can’t help but also see it as a reminder to always remember our Veterans and those who are still in activity duty. To youreal G.I.Joes (of all branches), the true American Heroes, I say Thanks and God Bless you.



Additional Domain Name added, and additional site updates!

nerdnationminilogo To further demonstrate my intent to cover a wider range of nerd topics and in cooperation with Nerdiversity 101 podcast, I announced a name change awhile back, now you can view us at the additional url, http://www.yournerdnation.com . In additional I have further tweaked our new logo,and added it to the message boards, which have a new url as well (just click on the forums link above that route still works.)

I have also continued to tweak the forums as I learn the software and have added some previous less trafficked forums back, but as sub forums so the forums look a little more tidy, but still have plenty of places for discussion. Please continue to let me you know what you think.  I have more free time than the past couple of months and hope to further improve the site.

Minor Update:

Of course it should be noted that any previous link to the forums will now no longer work and I will work to update some of the past stories, especially those who still get hits or i refer back too, to a correct link on the forum!


New Partner on the Site, New Name, an upcoming Podcast and more!

nerdnationminilogoBig announcement time.Toy Nation was always intended to cover more than toys, but with my interest mainly in Joe, and the name Toy right in the Logo, it was hard to look past.  i Almost went with Nerd Nation from the beginning and when Jaxs Trugrave asked me about a podcast…. and was going to use the the name Nerd Nation we got to talking. Very similar goals lead us to partner up. So welcome about Jaxs! He will soon along with, his co-producer Aaron will be bringing a podcast to discuss all things nerdy. I’ll be on there as well when able, but my appearance might be held off for a few weeks while real life gets in the way.

Currently the same domain will take you here, but that will be transitioned over, and the Logo may undergo further changes (upon seeing it blown up i think it’s too bright)  but we will still be bringing you the same articles, and hopefully be expanding more as time goes on to include more focus beyond (but not replacing) my G.I.Joe fanaticism.

The G.I.Joe custom contest voting continues until next friday so click HERE to place a vote.

In addition to that, I will continue an as planned transition in what i write. As I finish up my backlog of figure reviews, I have plans to broaden into some Dragon Age themed reviews and pieces as well as some top lists, more video game content, and movie reviews. You can expect a lot more updates and content from me, in about 3 weeks as I finish this semester.

Questions, Comments, Interested in writing with us? Let us know on the forums HERE.

It only gets better from here. -revsears

Site Update: Some posting difficulty

I’m experiencing some difficulty with some pre-schedualed posts, if you came to the site because of a twitter or facebook link, or briefly saw an incomplete article, or saw a complete article that disappeared, I apologize, and will fix it shortly.
