Ich hätte nur 6 Jahre länger dabei bleiben müssen (und ca. 936,- Euro ausgeben) um die auch zu bekommen. Trotzdem: Gz +Holger Lange

I really liked the lever-action mechanism, but for a rifle it needed a longer barrel.

NERF Revonix:
It may not look that spectacular, but this baby is a pretty insane piece of engineering. It has a revolving  drum-magazine with 5 chambers but every chamber is itself a magazine with 6 discs, but the really tricky part is that the discs are stored vertically and have to be turned horizontally in order to shoot them.
Yes, I completely disassembled it before painting

Nerf for Girls.
Promoting gender sterotypes or quite the oposite?

Ok, yes, I know I'm a big kid!
I'm in my forties and have a rather large collection of Nerf-Blasters, but that's not the topic here! ;-)
I recently discovered in my favorite Dart-Blaster shop that there is a new brand of Nerf Blasters called 'Rebelle'.
They are obviously designed for girls and they are pink!
Ok, to be honest they are not completely pink but definitely to much pink for me.
"Oh my, another company promoting these worn of gender stereotypes" was my first thought.
We already had Kinder Surprise for girls and Lego for girls and now this.

http://www.hasbro.com/rebelle/en_US/

I took a second glance and those things were still pink, much to pink...
But on the other hand it's still Nerf-Blasters. It's not that they made them into Dolls or Hairdryers or what ever comes to other companies minds when they design Toys for girls.
I guess that would be stupid anyway since Hasbro already sells a lot of these classic girl-toys.
Then something came to my mind +Cheyenne Wright wrote on G+.
The following happened to him in a department store:

A little girl - probably around 5 ran very excited, up to a set of superhero pajamas hanging from a rack...
"Look Mommy! Iron Man". 
Without missing a beat - her mom grabbed the little girls arm and pulled her away from the PJ's like they were on fire and sharply scolded her...
"Those are for boys"

That's silly, isn't it?
Well if there were Nerf Blasters for Girls, stupid mothers had no excuse denying them to their daughters, right?

Ok, I have no Idea if this might really work, but maybe it get's girls interested into toys and games that have been stereotypical toys for boys so far.

Being a typical Geek, I wished many times that my favorite hobbies found a little more acceptance with girls.
If that meant there had to be a pink D20, a pink Joystick or a pink Nerf Gun, so be it.

Besides I think that Crossbow might actually look pretty awesome given a decent paintjob...

Hunger Games was the hit between Twighlight and 50 Shades of Grey ...

And yes! In my universe vampires had never, do never and will never sparkle in the sunlight. They just burn to eternal death.

I somehow did not expect the skull getting more attention than the goggles.
It was actually just the first thing I grabbed from the shelf in my workshop when I was looking for something I could use as a display for the Goggles.

Ihr wisst ja wie das bei uns mit der Bahn und dem Wetter ist:
kaum sind drei Schneeflocken gefallen läuft das unter unvorhersehbare Naturkatastrophe und das Chaos bricht aus.
In Canada hingegen geht das so:

#conspiracy

So eben habe ich bemerkt, daß ich heute morgen vermutlich in eine Paralel-Realität aufgewacht bin oder vielleicht bin ich auch gar nicht aufgewacht sondern schlafe noch oder ich bin in der Matrix gefangen oder weiß der Teufel was!

Woher ich das weiß?
Ganz einfach, Schaut euch das Bild an:
Das in der kleinen Glas schale sind Gummibächen!
(Es sind sogar original Haribo Saftgoldbären um genau zu sein)
Sie stehen bei uns in der Firma in der Küche und sie stehen dort schon seit Freitag und ihr Auftauchen wurde offiziell per Rundmail an alle Mitarbeite bekannt gegeben.
Heute am Montag sind immer noch welche da!
Das ist nach den Gesetzen der wahrescheinlichkeit nahezu unmöglich!
Die statistische Wahrscheinlichkeit dafür ist geringer als im Lotto zu gewinnen, ja sogar geringer als von Außerirdischen entführt zu werden oder halt spontan in einer anderen Dimension aufzuwachen.

Tja, was kann man da tun?
Nun ja ich werde ein Wachsames Auge haben und überprüfen ob vielleicht der eine oder andere einen auffälligen Spitzbart hat, den er gestern noch nicht hatte und für alle Fälle bereite ich mich lieber auch noch auf die Zombie-Apokalypse oder den Einmarsch der Teletubbies vor.

Man kann ja nie wissen!
