Taobao, the outlet for most things Nerf before it's actually a Nerf thing. And today was no different.

Credit goes to WelshMullet for this find. The Baidu leaked Knock out target set goes on sale on Smyths.com and the previously unknown Rebelle Star Shot as well.

I love the Magnus. But if you're like me (and if you are, I'm so sorry) you're not happy with a blaster until you've squeezed just that extra bit out of a blaster. I wanted to combat the dart capacity first but also, see if something can be done to increase dart velocity.

As soon as the Magnus hit shelves in Singapore and Hong Kong, I was frantically emailing my contacts in both countries trying to get one. Psyk came through for me and I'd like to say a MEGA thanks to him. (see what I did there?)

A recently published patent (US8567378 B2) reveals how the intelligent air-restrictors work in the Roughcut, Triad and Crossfire, and reveals the Triad was originally going to have four barrels?

Starting this blog, I gave myself some rules. One of which was 'no rants'. Rants to me were Pocket's thing and he was good at it. But I have to break my own rule now. My hand has been forced.

By now you all know that the Zombiestrike line is a receptacle for rejected Elite and Vortex blasters. But was it really? Recent evidence has been found (on Baidu... where else?) that might suggest that Zombiestrike wasn't originally meant to be a line of it's own.

The Centurion has been around for a while now and I wouldn't consider it new anymore, and we've been flooded with pics of the Magnus to the point where it too is starting to become old too. But, where does Nerf's Mega line go from here?
We all have a blaster that we hate for a number of reasons and for many it's the Deploy and Centurion for obvious reasons. But, what about the blasters you like? What do you hate about a blaster that you like?

I was never a fan of bow style blasters. But after tooling about with the Blazin' Bow they started to grow on me. So when Prime Time Toys offered to send me an Airhawk I was more than happy to accept.

As soon as I turned on my computer this morning I checked Baidu and found pics of the White Roughcut in its box. Only to learn Smeagolsaur from the Nerf sub-Reddit beat me to them :(

Since the first Jolt appeared in 2011. People have been impressed with just how much power the little blaster has. Before the Triad made an appearance two years later, it was everyone's choice of a last resort blaster or the first blaster they integrated into another by attaching it to the fore grip of a pump-action blaster. Since then Hasbro have been using it as their entry level blaster for every sub-line, so here's a recap.

Right now, Nerf is king and to the uninitiated, other branded foam dart blasters are referred to as "Nerf" as well. Now, to automatically assume that every Nerf blaster is good would be wrong. Need I remind you of the Mega Centurion and the Deploy? To assume that any blaster that isn't Nerf is bad would be wrong too, and and example of that is the Quickfire Powerstrike 24 from Prime Time Toys.

Anyone who knows/knows of, Psyk, knows that he isn't happy with a blaster until he's squeezed every last bit of performance out of it, or, has rebuilt it into something better. And not even the Mega Magnus is immune!

Ah Baidu, you're always there to provide us bloggers with stuff to post about. This time is the boxes for two, yet to be released, Zombistrike blasters.

It's been a long time coming for us Fandroids but Hasbro has finaly accepted Ansroid's exsistance and will start making apps for the Linux based platform. Yay!
