Thats cool, maybe i'll convince myself to buy it when it comes out.

Anywho, I want that giant vulcan! Plant it on my roof to ward off unwanted neighbours.

"You see that thing on my roof?!, Yeah you don't **** with that!!"

Cool though, that wii gun might me worth something.

I am am avid visitor to Kotaku as I play a lot of video games so I thought I would share this nerf related item with the community.

Can you guys see the size of that Vulcan?

It fires Megas or possibly bigger.

I could do so much to that thing.

The real question is, How do I get one?

I don't get my kicks out of you,
I don't feel the way I used to do.
I know its bad,
After what we had,
But Iím just not the angel you knew.

Sweet fucking jesus. We must hunt this beast down, or another like it. Nerf had to have made it, but the question is, did they make more then one?

Just ask to buy it. Then mod it. Finally, sell it for twice the cost. E-bay did well last time.

I can see it now:

From the maker of the Lancer:

The Mega Vulcan.

With more tactical rails than you know what to do with, with more ammo than you will ever need, with the range of a singled Titan:

You can see this beast firing in this video at 6:49

Lifesize Vulcan
Wow am I impressed.
It even has a double trigger.
Just like I would wish a giant Vulcan would have.

The ammo belt looks like it fires megas at least. There could be room in there for jumbo or larger sized darts!

Mongo'd Vulcan, anybody?

Jesus Christ! I have to contact my friends at Hasbro about this thing. I'm willing to bet it's just a promotional piece they had made. If that thing was going to be available, it would probably retail for 99.99 or something ridiculous like that.


EDIT:
I know he said in the video it was the "life size vulcan available this holiday season and they haven't named a price" but I THINK he means the one that's out now. I bet he's just some dope that works at EA in marketing and has no idea about nerf blasters. I'd be VERY impressed if that big mother fucker is coming out for sale.

I think you guys are grossly misinterpreting these photos. That is clearly an office full of dwarves. Their undying hatred of the eldar should have been a dead give away.

Hersh if you buy that thing we're cutting a hole in the top of your truck, mouting it up there and driving it through the park. Sure we'll go to jail and probably will never be aloud at any war ever again, but it'll totally be worth it. Lets do this.

It sounds like it's pneumatically powered. Not likely to be a retail item. And those "darts" look to be about an inch in diameter, or roughly the same size as 3/8 pipe insulation.

Anyone else notice that it says

Vulcan BF-50 on the side??

Who else wants to bet that it actually stands for Vulcan Big Fuckin' 50 shot?

If I heard correctly from the person talking, it will be available for the holidays. Supposedly it's a nerf game, and you can use it as a real blaster as well. Can't wait to see if they will actually come out. :blink:

That's just the Wii pistol. It splits between being a Wii-mote shell, and an actual Nerf blaster.

If you listen closely, he actually says that the video game will be released for the holiday season, not the giant vulcan.

This Beast has to be for American Gladiators. Think about it, one of the American Gladiators was promoting the Vulcan, so it might not be a big stretch to think it's for their show, right?

(Note: Haven't seen the new Season of American Gladiator yet.)
