Yeah, Hasbro gets it wrong too, kind of upsetting.
For reference.


I don't find it upsetting in the least. Does that make me a bad toy gun owner?

Impression from the video is:
1) Its what we all feared.
2) That design looks so awkward.
3) Showed the video to my wife and immediate reaction was, no kid is going to wield that.
4) I don't think an adult can wield that comfortably.
5) Just because it is a "new" blaster doesn't make it a good idea.

It's big, bulky, only semi auto (we are modders right), but at least it isn't another reshell! As much as I hate flywheel blasters, I may pick this one up - just because it is so unique. It would really be a beast if someone modded the turn table under a stampede.

thats exactly what I was hoping this blaster would accomplish, because of how Effeminate it would be!

I have a feeling that its gonna be one heavy gun maybe comparable to the Vulcan. Maybe it rotates clips fires once from one clip then the next then so on. Too bad they didnt shoot the inside of the barrel to show what type of blaster it is like fly wheel or plunger that would explain the acceleration trigger.

No, it's definitely a flywheel. The acceleration trigger and the semi-automaticity ensure that it is a flywheel. And it would bee too complex to make it rotate with each shot in addition to being utterly pointless. The top handle is the rotation mechanism's "trigger", mr. Tl;dr.

I personally think with a lot of modification that this gun could be made practical. The first being replacing the underbelly tactical rail with a horizontal grip. Since the top handle works the rotating mech, I'm think that it would be possible to remove the handle and make the gripbe able to slide back and forth, then use a wire setup similar to how the alpha trooper's barrel cocking mechanism works to attach the grip to the former handle to rotate. that may not make sense, but basically it could be possible to hold the Hail-fire like a normal gun rather than with the handle, and still have the rotating mech work. This partnered with a full-auto setup could really made for one sweet gun. If only it came out this summer when I have time rather than during school.

What started as a pointless rant has now become a speculation thread. Closed.
