Looks like there's hope for volley mods still then!

actually, I may have to try to Successfully mod a nerf Semi-auto now that the hornet's just a wee bit cooler.

WTF? Thats a homosexual Hornet (not Baghead, its okay for him and Telekinetic). Lime green and pink, what are you a 6th grade girl?

I really like the new paintjob though, it looks better than the red, bleh.

I think I f'd up my Hornet. I can't put barrels on it, I dremeld too much.
If anyone knows how to take off the black barrel holder please PM me.

It's about time they sold it solo. The titan as already been sold as an individual unit, and they put the scout in a revision of the tech target. Now the most practical off the Unity power system finally gets it's turn. :)

Sorry guys, but it's motherfutchin purple.

I love it when nerf re-releases guns only in Iowa though. N-strike Crossbows rock.

that's Idaho.

On topic: I tookk apart my hornet hoping to make it a bit smaller. It will never be together again. That thing's complicated.

"I don't know," Alice answered.

Oh, we're in trouble. Slept through U.S. Geography classes, huh?


Everybody forgets that Hornets are like Blastfires, although not as "good". But they still are sufficient as true semi-auto Nerf weapons. I'm glad I didn't sell our old N-Strike one. Still mint and unmodified (so far).

Damn. Nerf finally re-releases one of my favorite guns, and it's a Toys B We exclusive. I live nowhere near one! There may be one in St. Paul/Minneapolis, or possibly Duluth, but not that I know of.

That's pretty bitchin'. Of course, I've still got my two original N-Strike Hornets to deal with.

Time to put the trusty dremel to work...

Can someone that has one of these get in the guts of it and tell us if the internals are different from the N-strike version?

I'm pretty sure it's the same N-strike Hornet with a different paint job. Wicked sweet! I love the Hornet!

And finally, I can have a hornet that works! When I got mine from the Unity power system, it worked for like a day, I put it away, and then when I tried it again like a year later it did not even pump.

My nearest TRU has one. If you look at the back of the box it definitely looks more like a metallic blue then purple.

I didn't buy it because frankly I don't like the hornet.

considering that when you buy a singled titan its 20, this hornet is 20, and the scout was 14 i believe in the tch target package... wouldnt it be better to just pay the 40 for all 3? i mean the titan isnt useless, the scout looks cool, and the hornet is awesome. i was just thinking.

Because I'm pretty sure the N-Strike is out of production. Also, not if you need a replacement gun if you screw one up modding it. Sure, the unit price is better, but the tangible price is worse.
