The Unity Power set is still available. But inventory is dependent upon the size and location of your TRU. Much like it is for the Target exclusive standalone Titan.

I'm no longer a fan of any of the blasters in the set. The Hornet has tons of common manufacturing defects and is extremely hard to modify or even keep in one piece. The Titan is really heavy and ungainly no matter what you do to it. And the Scout performs terribly.

The little critters of nature, they don't know that they're ugly. That's very funny, a fly marrying a bumble bee. I told you I'd shoot, but you didn't believe me. Why didn't you believe me?

I'd like to interject that I think the titan actually has the appropriate heft relative to it's power, and honestly, a minimized one can perform quite nicely as a primary, as long as it's not singled, that's just evil.

Seriously... how else can you get an effective ballgun for use in standard Modified play without using the titan?


you can't.

I agree that the hornet is a pain to work with, just like it's predecessor the Blastfire, and I'll never buy one for full price, nor attempt modify it to be used as a standalone gun ever again; 2 failed attempts of both particular basters is more than enough for me thank you. Even though this new color scheme does tempt me so.

But the fact that they're still around is a good thing, because that means they'll eventually go on clearance or pop up for sale used/broken, which means more volley mods for those of us who love pump guns.

My brother swears by his Hornet, and uses it effectively stock. I'm sure modding it is a bitch, but six semi-auto shots or a shotgun blast is a pretty sweet deal.

I'd be willing to pay $20.

I personally think red is a cooler color for the Hornet. But nice find.

I just picked one up tonight (never got an N-strike set, and thought I'd try a Hornet).

Just so everyone knows, this thing is most definitely not purple. It's almost the same color as a Longshot (and the original Mav and FF), although it seems a little shinier.

Now to take out the 20 kajillion screws... ;)

Somethimes I hate Hasbro.

PS: I, too am a red fan, but for some reason I like blue blasters. *shrug*

Generally I find the hornet confusing and altogether ineffective. Now, I haven't sat down and cut it appart at all, but I'd say it's a streight up money waster. Although mavs aren't particuarily good either they are better than the hornet and are easier to mod, less cumbersome to use and have a higher ROF. In my opinion, the only good guns that have come out of Hasbro in a while are the Night Finder and the Titan.

I don't want to get in a debate, but you don't like the hornet and you like the titan? What about sspb's, LS's, Recons, BBB's (well, kinda). I say they are good.

I think he was referring to the original N-Strike Unity Power System. The only real N-strike. The rest are just NERF guns- they don't attach or any awesome shit like that. Well, not for the most part, but you get my point.

You may want to check the date before posting, and multiple "smilies" are extremely erotic particuarly when they don't work.
