OMG! Introducing NERF Nuke from ThinkGeek!

The NERF Nuke is quite simply the pinnacle of NERF weaponry. Load it with 80 NERF darts and crank the arming mechanism (which is also the trigger button, so be careful). To conserve space, the NERF Nuke uses a reverse-plunger system, which compromises distance for compactness.

But hey, it’ll still fire the darts up to 30 feet when it hits. However, the NERF Nuke Launcher is a tripod-mounted, direct-plunger system, and can rocket the NERF Nuke itself up to 40 feet – just far enough for you to be outside the blast radius. When you need to end it, and end it fast, there’s no other choice than the NERF Nuke!

Fix a classic G.I.JOE figure (using a condom)

Last saturday I was invited by a couple of friends of mine to their home. They have an awesome collection of classic G.I.JOE action figures. Some of them were damaged because the inner rubber band that put them together was broken. Luckily, the keep the parts. Then I took one of the apparently good figures and… accidentally I broke its rubber band. Now I have in my hands the legs, hip and chest of another dead JOE.

Ashamed with my friends, they told me I didn’t need to blame myself. After all, it was a normal age damage on the classic JOEs. Maybe one day the would buy some rubber bands for the action figures. Or maybe not.

I didn’t want to leave without make amends for my fault. But what could I do? I didn’t have any rubber band, neither my Dremel or my Sonic Screwdriver. So I use it something everybody has: a condom. It worked so well my friends asked me for fixing other figures and I’m posting the instructable. It’s a simple solution and you can give a new life to your old G.I.JOEs. Even, you can reuse expired condoms.

And here I am, using condoms in near Valentine’s Day, repairing some old toys…
