    Toyfare magazine has accepted a Customizing 101 feature that I wrote and will appear in issue 158, out on stands Wednesday August 11th! It's a how-to piece on how to create pyro effects out of hot glue. I wrote the piece as well as took the photos that appear with it. I'm really hoping that they ask me to do another! I already know that you guys are going to be supportive so thanks ahead of time!
    Attached it a little teaser of what you're going to see.

    Thanks! I'm going to be on my girlfriend's dad's internet radio show on Monday morning. It's not exactly Good Morning America, but it should be fun.

    Contests man. I can't wait to see the full thing, the teaser is intriguing to say the least.

    I aways thought the idea of the hot glue muzzle flash was cool. Great job man, I'll be trying to pick this issue up for sure bro.

    Today's the day! The issue should be on stands now. Be sure to snap it up and send in lots and lots of emails about how you want to see more custom toy features! (Possibly even my me.)

    I don't know about some of you guys, but I wasn't able to see this issue. TS was kind enough to share the articles:
