More after jump.

MOD GUIDE: Nerf Mega Magnus

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.

MOD GUIDE: Nerf Blazin' Bow

I like the Blazin' Bow. But in an Elite Nerf world, N-strike is sub-standard. Time to make it better!

REVIEW: Nerf Elite Mega Magnus

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?)

Patent reveals how "smart-ARs" work & four barrel Triad

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?

Zombiestrike Super Soaker... no, you heard me correctly

Umm, what? Was my exact reaction when Smeagolsaur from the Nerf subReddit found these.

Ricochet Box Art, More Jolts And A Rant

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.

Early Crossfire Box Design Reveals Zombiestrike's Origins!

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.

Hasbro, watcha doin? Hasbro, STAHP!

So, It would appear that the Jolt, Hasbro's bread-n-butter blaster for Nerf isn't done for just yet. Because we have, yet again, MORE!!!

What's Next For Mega?

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?

OPEN MIC NIGHT: what do you hate about a blaster you like

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?

Elite Suction Darts on Toys R Us Japan website

It's the type of dart you either like or don't. For some, it's the dart they've been hoping would return eventually and now Elite Suction Darts are here.

REVIEW: Prime Time Toys Airhawk Compound Bow

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.

White Roughcut 2X4 box art

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 :(

Hasbro, stop giving us Jolts!

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.

REVIEW: Prime Time Toys Quickfire Powerstrike 24

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.

REVIEW: Nerf Vortex Revonix 360 (grey trigger)

Well, it was going to happen sooner or later. For a while now, Vortex has been immune from the cursed "Grey Trigger", but that is now at an end with the Revonix 360.

Mega Magnus internals (courtesy of Psyk!)

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!
