Nerfenstein: Custom Linsanity Scout- MVP in my book:D


I absolutely love Nerfenstein's work; in a very short period of time she's really made a name for herself as a very talented creative prop designer with a very keen eye for detail and some very innovative pieces.  Recently she got word that I am a big fan of the Knicks, but mainly Jeremy Lin, so I was absolutely stoked when I received this very cool and quirky art/sport/blaster mash-up in the mail the other day. The most rewarding thing about Urban Taggers is the relationships we've formed with the toy blaster community and it was just a really really nice surprise to get something so cool that's just for me:D Thanks again Nerfenstein, you do indeed rock:D

  5. I thought I'd answer "why?"

    Simple.. because sometimes it's nice to do something nice for another person, particularly is said person is having a rough week / month.

    Thanks to everyone else for the positivity xx

  6. One of the things about Nerfenstein that sets her apart from others is the unique way of looking at design.

    Most Nerf aesthetic mods (and by no means am I criticising, they look awesome) follow a similar pattern, which is to make a blaster look 1)realistic or to 2) resemble a gun that's featured in a movie or video game.

    Nerfenstein has proven time and time again she's more than capable of doing that too- her work is exceptional but what I like about the work is she dares to try different things, bringing in other elements of pop culture that many of us don't see or realise- and does a great job with them. You can also see the progression of her work getting better and better- I'll be the first to admit I was a critic from the start (big loyal Johnson Arms fan) but Nerfenstein's work has won me over and proven I can appreciate multiple artists' work:D

    In any case, it came at a dark time and made me smile, which was the intent, and I appreciated it immensely. Why? That's why:D
