That is all I know. If you have a reasonable question I will forward it along. I've requested some more pictures. I'll post them if I get them.

I have a feeling that either small plungers, reverse plungers (or both) are going to be used here, considering it probably takes a lot less air to fire a little disc than a relatively large chunk of foam with plasticky rubber-esque stuff on it. I wonder if people will start making home-made discs (and blasters & home-mades to fire them) as counterparts to stefans and slugs.

I wonder if the sight on the first vortex one is just like a reflex sight, but in a plastic shell.

The vigilon and praxis dont seem to interest me but the nitron has quite a long stock which hopefully, though probably not, means a long plunger...if these even use plungers. The proton also looks pretty sweet, It seems like it would be a good back up since its so simple to load yet it maintains the reliability and simplicity of a single shot.

That is all the speculation I will engage in for this series.

Edit: derp the nitron is likely a flywheel gun, not a plunger; based on the grey cylinder sticking out infront of the mag.

Never mind, I missed the shit about the new stuff, there is a video I ran across that shows the new vortex line, they appear to fire rubber discs, more accurately and with more power than I am used to seeing out of a disc gun. I am pretty psyched for some disc guns to come off the hasbro line

Why does everyone think that these guns are going to use a familiar plunger or reverse plunger setup? How, exactly, would you propel AND put sufficient spin on a disc by blowing a bunch of compressed air at it from behind? I would be very surprised to see plungers in these blasters, and find it far more likely that it's a new propulsion system.

I'm a little bit bummed that we aren't going to see any new N-Strike guns this year, and that the stupid orange re-releases are of a bunch of blasters that nobody cares about. How many versions of the crappiest Nerf gun (Maverick) do we really need? Is that blaster really that popular, especially after the Spectre came out? Of all three retailer exclusive guns, the one that got a nod from Nerf is the battery-powered Barricade? And the Raider, really? Not the Long Strike?

I'm just hoping this isn't going to make the actually good blasters hard to find.

Agreed with your thoughts on propulsion, though Nerf has been known to, well, nerf their own designs ever since they came across their lovechild Recon design. I take issue with your view of the Nstrike lineup. The Maverick is consistently Nerf's best selling blaster, at a reasonable price point, cool functionality, and general reliability among stock blasters (It IS a piece of shit from a modders' perspective)- it's earned its 2 repaints a year. The spectre is an overengineered Mav- the less ammo capacity and increased price make it a far cry from the Mav's replacement. As for the LSk, if you really want one, there's one in the works for this year (I won't say too mich for fear of ruining the 'suprise'). And Raiders are one of my favorite ReClones, that and the Recon itself.
/end pointless rant about child's toys.
/begin more relevant rant about companies' promises to this community.
@Hasbro- you released this info on the Facebook page ages ago! Why just now let us know? If Hasbro can't keep up its send of supplying new information to the community, I fail to see why we're holding back from speculation threads (such fun little shitstorms those) and reporting the news when it crops up on the net instead of waiting an extra 2 months for a piss-poor release given secondhand!
Well, that's enough ranting. The disc-shooters look cool after all....

I've never used a Maverick that wasn't junk. The ranges are crap, and I'm not sure what reliability you're talking about, because the rotation mechanism seizes up and hitches all the time because it's stupidly tied into the trigger pull. The Maverick is pretty much the only Nerf blaster that just doesn't fire for no real reason at all. The Spectre is significantly more expensive than The Maverick, but considering that the Mav which used to be $7 at Walmart is now $10 pretty much everywhere you look, and the fact that the Spectre offers similar functionality with considerably more reliability and greater ranges even stock than the Maverick, I find the Spectre to be a much better deal.

Granted, these repaints are obviously based on sales potential, and I suppose every little kid has a Maverick because it's cool looking. I guess I just mad.

I'm still legitimately confused about the Barricade though. I don't think basing a repaint of one of the retailer-exclusive guns on sales is necessarily fair, since obviously the Walmart gun is going to sell the most, being the most popular store. Where's the Barrel Break repaint? Somebody finally releases a double-barreled shotgun that doesn't suck and is backed by Nerf engineering, and nobody cares? I'm starting to feel like I should stock up on them before they disappear from stores, because it doesn't seem like it's getting any love from Nerf.

How IS the Raider anyway? I've had somewhat neutral experiences with all the ones I've used, both modded and not. It just doesn't seem like the ridiculous ammo capacity and overall cool design is worth the somewhat lackluster performance that I've found. Of course, I could have just been using crap blasters.

I also don't like that the 35-round drum magazine was designed to be nearly impossible for most people to effectively use in anything except the Raider, because it completely obstructs the supporting grip of anybody who's right-handed when used in a Longshot or a Long Strike, but now I'm just ranting about blasters in general.

1. I had a clear maverick that fired streamlines amazingly. Had at least 30-40 feet in a fairly straight line completely unmodded. I gave it away and kind of regret it. I don't know if I got lucky or what, but I was amazed at how well it shot.

2. I'm pretty sure the Barricade paragraph you wrote makes sense to anyone. You're just saying things now.

3. Raiders are as good as any of the reverse plunger guns which is to say "not really good". But you gotta remember they don't design this shit for us. If anything they make it more difficult to mod in the long run. For what they're trying to do, which is make really cool toy guns, they're doing a bang up job. The raider is a fun gun to play around with. But there's a very good reason that most of us are using homemades now.

TL:DR: You're taking Nerf guns too seriously.

Nah, it's whatever. It just seems like an odd selection of blasters for the new paint job, and I'm kinda bummed that I don't care about any of them. The Vortex line definitely has my interest though.

This update, however, gives us approximate prices for each of the Vortex blasters, which is something new.
It's time to pretend.

Yay, the IRC.

(That's kinda what we do on this site)

I'm sort of excited for these vortext guns, though I would rather they weren't vomit green.
