A Review of the Graphic Skinz vacuum chamber and decals

blueboardN

With help from my lil’ nerd I check out the graphic skinz vacuum chamber and it’s abilities to add small decals to toys. The footage was recorded about a year ago! I can echo what I said then, if you want to use it for toys, they have to be smallish, and a clear coat is a must. After the videos below there are some still images. If you like what you see, you can use my affiliate link Here (for pink) and Here (for blue) to purchase one on amazon. (I will get a tiny referral fee.)

Dark Souls 3 Collectors Edition Contents Review

The third game in the renowned Dark Souls series released today in the parts of the world that aren’t Japan, and it’s just as hard as you’d expect it to be. I will be writing a review on the game itself after I’ve had enough time to get to grips with it’s systems and see if it’s another great game that From software has given us

But for now, were going to look at the big box that was given to me by the nice Mr. Postman.

The box itself is a major beast, showing a possible face for the unkindled one (the player character). It’s a very nice image, with the orange/green glow giving a sense of hope, tying into the theme of embers and fire that the dark souls games revolve around. What were really interested in lies within this cardboard tomb

1. The Art Book

 

Firstly we have the a4 hardback artbook which, as you can see, covers the whole trilogy. The book itself is separated into three sections, one for each game, and contains box art, area art, monsters and characters for each game. It lacks a lot of the text that the previous individual art book releases have had that explain why things were done the way they were, but as a collection of good artwork from the three games it’s still a very nice piece.

2. The Map and Patches

Lil Nerd and I build and review the Funko Paper Craft Batman set.

blueboardN

me and the Lil nerd open up Funko Paper craft Batman set. I attempt to review it as I put it together, and my son plays away with the included pieces. Provides some fun background pictures, but the middle section of the diorama needs help being flattened out, and obviously being paper kids can tear them.  If, after watching the video below, you think it’s up your ally then scroll on down to see where to buy it.

Funko DC Comics: Batman Paper Craft Activity Set

I drank pure cane sugar and lived. See the horror!

blueboardNIf sugar makes everything better… what about just skipping to the sugar? Of course we knew better, yet me and my brother wanted to brave it just for the experiment.  We first tackle some energy drinks, all but one foreign, and then top it off with cane sugar juice in a can. If you enjoy it we would appreciate a jump over to our channel and a like and subscribe.

 

Hey, this Swedish Banana Candy is actually Dutch? (We try it anyways)

blueboardNAt Joe Con 2015, I had brought Tom, The Silent Assassin, some ale 8 one that I had purchased from Jungle Jims, and some Banana Candy, that i thought was Swedish, for myself as a snack. It didn’t take long for me offer “Swedish Banana Candy” to someone and for it to sound worse than I meant it, jokes ensued. Here is me (Sam) and Brad giving it, and some pineapple single packed gummies a try.
