Yes, that's right: GIANT FOAM THROWING WEAPONS OF DOOM!
I immediately bought a few sets, and was more than impressed with them, I figured they would just be fun for goofing off, but I quickly realized that I just may be able to make a case for using these little buggers for actual Nerf Gameplay purposes. One of the big reasons being that they're actually MADE to be thrown at people.
Those little nubs let them attach into a holster that straps on your back, and it auto-advances the next one, so realistically, you can only carry three at a time on you, this limits them being used in overkill fashion. And They're inaccurate as hell unless you practice with them a lot.
I showed them to falcon and we've agreed to use them in our wars under a few conditions:
*They don't fall under the "no picking up other people's guns" rule. Once thrown, they count as live ammunition. Once they hit the ground, they count as dead ammo that ANYONE can pick up and use.
*Catching them is only legal if you can "Ring-toss Catch" them, which means that you basically have to only touch the inner ring of them, just hard enough that if you do it, it's a-ok.
* You can Manta Block them just like any other form of ammo.
*if you wear a Naruto Headband, you can't use them... as that's going too far when not at an Anime convention...
Did I mention that they're Head-Impact Safe?:
I can see it now... someone out ranges you and has you cornered "I'm a Gonna Snipzorz Joo!" he shouts, when you fling these bad boys in defense, before he can react, it's too late: FOAMSHURIKENPWNAGE!
So, As you may have guessed, The Naruto Mega Strike Shuriken get:
I went back to my local target today, and they're now listed as 4.98, so go try to pick some up while you still can. I checked wall-mart, and they're selling them for full price, which is 20 bucks...they're not worth 20, 10 maybe, and 4.98, definitely.
So.... What do you guys think?
