There have been 50 items by Orange (Search limited from 02-December 93)
RAMBO - Congratulations Orange - looks like you completed your mission. May I ask how much all of that cost?
Not as much as you'd think. I managed to pick up probably 75% of my arsenal at yard sales, rummage sales and flea markets, so that saved me a lot of money. I also managed to trade for a lot of the harder to find stuff, so I'd say the whole lot cost no more than $350-$400.
J_cobbers - Man Orange, tell us you plan to sell some of that off! That is by far the largest collection I've seen yet.
Yeah, I've been keeping most the extra stuff for trades, but since I have just about everything I want now I'll probably start to sell off some of the multiples at some point.
RAMBO - A while ago maybe summer '04 he posted on NHQ that he was looking for a handful of rare guns - Supertech 9k etc. And he said he would trade or buy, pretty much any price, and he would also buy other guns for decent prices. So I had a few of the guns, and we PMed and he told me he basically wanted to collect, that he didn't actually plan to nerf much, which should be ovbious seeing as not a single one is modded or even scratched - at least readily visible.
I was actually never looking for a Supertech 9000, my sister picked that up for me this summer. Don't get me wrong, I was very pleasantly surprised that she managed to find it, but I was never actively looking for one, mostly because I never thought I'd actually see one!
Also, I'm not just a collector, I do Nerf fairly often. The thing is I'm almost exclusively an indoor Nerfer, so I've never really gotten into modding. I don't need the extra power, and to be quite honest, I'm too afraid I'd end up breaking my guns if I attempted to modify them, so I stick with stock guns.
ItalionStallion - Orange, how many guns are you off from having EVERY Nerf gun ever? I know you dont have a Batman gun...
As far as I know I have every Nerf gun that's been released so far. I never bothered picking up a Batman gun since it isn't really an official "Nerf brand" Nerf gun, by my standards at least.
cxwq - My question is how long did it take you to lay all those out to photograph them?
It took about 5 hours between taking everything out, setting it up, and then having to pack it back up again. I've picked up probably a dozen other guns since these pics were taken, but I doubt I'll ever attempt to take pictures of everything all together like this again, it's just way too much work.
3nerfiteers - Orange, take a picture of all your darts. Sort them by color and size. THAT would take awhile.
I'd actually like to try and do that, but I haven't found the time yet.
Uncle Hammer - Orange is missing alot of nerf movie guns. Small soldiers,star wars, and toy story. He is also missing some extremely rare larami blasters.
As I said, I'm really only interested in getting the guns that were actually released under the "Nerf" brand name. The different Batman, Jurassic Park, Star Wars, Transformers and other movie/toy line tie in guns don't really interest me.
As for the other Larami SuperMaxx blasters, I may try to pick them up in the future if possible, but the only ones I'd really want are the Arrow Blaster and Ball Blaster since all the others were re-released as Nerf brand guns already. Still, given the rarity of those two guns I doubt I'll ever be able to get them...
Ok, orange is a real guy. He lives a few houses past mine. His laptop won't let him post on nerfhaven for some reason. For this reason he does his business on another nerf forum, which we also share. Same with our youtube account. We work as a team. No offense taken.
I don't mean to take this thread off topic, but what the fuck are you talking about kid? I don't know who the hell you are, so keep my name the hell out of your stupid little posts in the future...
Yea, I considered it being a painted sm500, but I thought it looked too clean. The sticker looked slightly different, and the auction didn't say anything about paint, but oh well. I was just curious.
I know what you mean, I questioned it for a moment as well until I saw the Ratchet Blast behind it painted in the same colors.
Oh, and I'm glad you like the site JRoD.
If you can get your aunt to give the guns to you be sure to let me know, I'd be willing to make you quite the offer on them...

I used to have the Imports of Shining Force III Scenario 2 & 3, but ended up selling them a few years ago because I couldn't get into the game without being able to understand the story (The games are all in Japanese). I'm still hoping they'll release a Shining Force III collection with Scenarios 2 and 3 in the US, but it's looking less likely with each passing year...
Anyway, you can find the first Shining Force game on compilation discs like the Sega Smash pack, or as Omega said, through an emulator online. I also heard they were releasing a virtual console Shining game for the Wii, so if you've got a Wii that's well worth checking out, because the Shining Force series is truly one of the all time classics.
The Sega Saturn never really took off in the US, but it really did have a great collection of games. The Shining games, Dragon Force, Saturn Bomberman, X-Men: Children of the atom, Panzer Dragoon, Wipeout, Marvel Super Heroes, Burning Rangers, Virtual On, Virtua Cop, Sonic Jam, Guardian Heroes, Nightwarriors, Mr. Bones, Baku Baku, Nights and so many many more!
It's just too bad so many of these games are so damned expensive, my collection isn't half as big as I'd like it to be, but I just can't bring myself to pay the prices that some of these suckers go for.
Toy Quest is also the same company that makes the XXL line which this larger Spider-Man 3 gun looks to be a repaint of:
Retiate - I haven't tested that yet, so I'm not sure if it will work on it's side, but I do know you can control the angle that the Disk Launcher will shoot by using the remote attachment, which is pretty neat. *Edit: I just checked and no, the launcher won't shoot when on it's side. There's a little safety tab on the bottom of the disc launcher that has to be kept pushed in or it shuts down, though all you'd really have to do to get around that is simply put a piece of tape over the tab and it'll work just fine.
NerfMonkey - It works like a Triple Strike, you can fire the darts one at a time or all at once depending on how much pressure you put on the trigger.
I've got loose pics of these items up at my site now, and I'll be taking more pictures as soon as I can.
Here are a few quick pics of the front and back of the boxes, I'll try to get more pictures of the guns up later this afternoon:
PS - If you don't want to wait for these items to show up in your local stores the Disk Shot is in stock at Amazon.com and the Spider-Man Dart Tag is at KBToys.com.
The other thing is I'm really only interested in official Nerf guns, so I don't have any info on Lanard or other non Nerf guns, beyond Vortex, Larami and Mattel stuff of course. But I do have pics of nearly all my guns up on that site, as well as a complete list of all the official Nerf guns. I didn't add in the different color variations and whatnot since I didn't think anyone else besides me would care about them, but now that I know others are interested I'll try to get that info added in at some point.
Anyway, I hope that helps, the only thing I ask is that if you want to use any of the info or pictures on my site for your own use that you ask me first as I did put a lot of work into this.
They only cost $28.95, so if you've been waiting on picking up a Longshot now might be the time as I'm sure like the Dart tag / Firestrike sets last year these won't be around for very long.
Here are a few quick pics I took of the box and the sight on a couple of different N-Strike blasters:
On the Nite Finder
On the Maverick
Just the Sight
Edit: Sorry about the pics, larger ones can be seen here - http://photobucket.c...25/SuperOrange/
I know it's a dumb question since nerfing takes place outside in the daytime, but how is the visibility factor with it?
I had it on top of my Nite Finder last night and found the Sight's beam to be a lot stronger than the Nite Finder's. Also, the dot the Sight produced was a lot clearer on the wall, it was an actual dot whereas the Nite Finder kind of made a large blob. Indoors during the day I can still see the Sight's dot three rooms away, but outside it's really next to useless in the daylight.
Is the sight laser sight?
like you look through the reticle and tehres a red dot or crosshair?
It's a sight, not a scope, so you don't look through anything, it simply shines a red dot on the wall like a Night Finder.
Cool, I'm assuming you got it since you have pictures that are clearly ones you've taken, so how does it work?
It snaps right on to the rails that are on top of all the N-Strike guns and there's a little switch on the back of the sight you use to turn the light beam on and off.

So, I can't say for certain if it was actually released or not, but I've have talked to people who said they had it, so I'm including it in the list.

Doesn't sound very good at all, but it's at least good to see some new items from Lanard.
Edit: Here's the thread I was talking about.
The Spider-Man versions can be found at Big Lots, and I've seen the one Yazzeh has pictured at Dollar General stores.
In any case, if you do decided to sell it in the future please be sure let me know, I'd be willing to pay an obscene amount of money for it or trade multiple items to get my hands on one of these.
The second one, as others have said, is a Nerf NB-1 Missile Blaster. The clips on each side of the gun are for a black ammo holder that you are missing,
I don't know about getting replacement ammo for it, perhaps if you contact Lanard directly they can help you out?
And HasbroToyShop.com has the "New" Nerf Tech Target in stock for $14.99.
Hopefully these will start showing up in stores soon.
The Big Bad Bow pictured on the box didn't have any stickers on it at all, and it came with 6 arrows instead of the usual 3. It was priced at $19.99
The Titan was individually packed without the rest of the N-Stirke system, and it was titled "Big Bad Titan", not "Titan AS-V.I" as it was with the N-Strike system. It came with one missile and was also priced at $19.99.
I'll try to go back tomorrow with my digital camera and get pictures of both boxes for you guys.
