I personally think it is butt-ugly, although I do applaud you for attempting the transformation of a plastic gun into a reptilian beast. One man's trash is another man's treasure, I guess.

Rofl since I can't pick both "it's unwieldy" and "it's ugly", I picked the former. But I really mean both.

I never really gave you props though, you did integrate a Titan into it. Which was done pretty piss-poorly, but it is a good idea.

Unless you use this at a war and redeem yourself, I will never have any respect for Chubbs. 'Nuff said.

Oh, and at least no one (to this point) has said that they don't know what it is. Could be the semi-spam advertising you use and the two separate links to it in your signature.

Chubbs is the epitome of what nerfing/modding is all about. We take plastic toys and try things that most people never think of.

Although the particular style you created it in is... unique, it's your gun, as long as you are happy with it, it shouldn't matter (Wow, do I sound like a teen councilor?) You by far have the most attention grabbing vulcan... in the world.

Besides, it's a VULCAN! Be proud. Shoot people.

Seriously, what the fuck is chubbs? Why do people insist on NAMING guns? Unless you're going to give your gun a girl's name, I just don't see the reason. It already has a name that millions of dollars of marketing went into. If you fucking mutilate it, add 6 pounds of modeling clay, and paint it fucking green......guess what? It's still a Vulcan.

Kill yourself.......All of you.

No. Its ugly. Personally I agree that it's what Nerf modding is about; taking something and transforming it past people's expectations.

My beef with Chubbs is that it is a cool idea done poorly. A gun that looks like an alligator is a pretty unique and rad idea, I just thing you rushed it, the sculpting isn't great, neither is the paint. Also the titan integration could of been done a lot better and cleaner, as splitlip has mentioned. And now if someone where to go and make a properly sculpted alligator vulcan they'd be 'copying chubbs', so the idea is basically dead. Yes sculpting isn't the easiest thing, but with patience even beginners can get awesome results.

+1 for originality

+1 for Happy Gilmore reference

-1 for uglyness

-1 for rushing it

-1 for hyping it and spamming it everywhere

I will say this, it is really fuckin' ugly and I have never liked Titans modded to fire darts, but if you like it, who gives a fuck what anyone else says. I do like the fact that you did give it a unique cosmetic mod (instead of a paintjob like everyone else), but it isn't my style.

My big issue here is that you actually care what others think. People's opinions should not matter. Remember, opinions are like assholes....everyone has one. If it really does matter to you, then it would appear that you are modding blasters as a way to fish for compliments and to boost your self-esteem. Just do what you enjoy and don't let others opinions influence you.

I really could care less if someone made a better chubbs as long as they don't say oooooooooooh my chubbs is better than yours.
EDIT: Thank you for the great advice I've become too obsessed with what other people think.

Well it's a creative idea, and it could have turned out well, but it didn't. But you made such a big deal about it because you got the first vulcan and turned it into an alligator. But seriously why do you care so much? You seriously made a poll about people's opinion when you have so many pages in it's own thread? Enough already.

So, when you start a thread to find out people's opinions, the goal is to take them into consideration, not bash them down, especially after the only did as you asked.

Just go to a nerf war, try it out, and if you don't like it, stop using it. It doesn't matter if your gun is lower in the opinion polls the George W. Just fucking nerf.

I think you're being a little too self-conscious here. It's a just a Nerf gun. And if that's what you wanted to mutilate make it look like, then just go with that.

It is pretty ugly though...

I think there's been an influx of polls recently...
From "which gun is the worst?" to "should I stay on YouTube?" and now... this.... thing. To each his own, I guess. I've even posted in two of them to state my opinions on the matter, but I don't think the mods appreciate all these freakin polls...

I like chubbs. I think it's kind of cool integrating a Titan into a Vulcan, take modeling clay, form it into the shape of an alligator and paint it green.
For those of you who don't know, this is chubbs:
I like it because it's original, and usually, I have no creativity at all to create something original, that's why I love it when people post new mods that I can do (seeing that I have the tools and ability, which most of the time any mod requiring a dremel, or is extremely complicated and confusing, I can't do).
I also like listening to peoples opinions as they MIGHT contain something useful that will help your mod/paintjob. I have a feeling I might get flamed...theres a first time for everything


EDIT: To me, appearance is a "secondary objective." You should complete the mod first, then paint it or make it look better, most of the time, I get lazy since i've just spent a few hours completing a mod, so I don't paint it/make the gun look cleaner.
E.G. My first BBB mod was an AR removal and a barrel replacement, I also hot glued a crud load of dart holders (PVC pipes cut and hot glued/duct taped together)
My second BBB mod was when I ripped of the dart holders, cut off the handle and took an NF and integrated it onto where the handle was.
My third BBB mod was again, ripping off the dart holders, cutting off the "scope" and hot gluing a tactical light. (seen in 'geddon '08)
My fourth mod was ripping of every single little thing. reopening the gun and brass barreling it. (done today)
So as of now, I don't want to touch my BBB, and it has a crud load of hot glue on the sides making it look EXTREMEMLY fugly.

It's not like that. I put lube on it and its the same. Its just stuck. And when I cock it back it goes farther back then usual. Also I push as hard as I can and it wont go back in. I've tried the methods and they wont work. Also pics are up.

I personally don't like Chubbs, at least when you turned it into an alligator, because it simply made it look horrible (in my opinion.)

I don't want to touch my BBB, and it has a crud load of hot glue on the sides making it look EXTREMEMLY fugly.


Off topic, but maybe you could use epoxy putty or something to give it a new surface over the hot glue, so that it's a bit less ugly.
