EDIT: Here are the patients for lazy people:
Raider CS-6 - 76691227
Shadow Fury Foam Swords - 76691228 <------------------Swords are here
Magstrike AS-10 - 76691229
Attack Unit Dart Blaster - 76691230
Slam Fire - 76691232
Stampede Rev 12 - 76691235
Rampage EBF-25 - 76691236


Nice to see that some of my research has proved to be accurate. They look nice, but they would need to beat the Ja-Ru brand foam sword price of $2 for me to take much interest.

The back of the packaging might have info on future nerf releases.

Now we just gotta learn to deflect darts, Cyborg Ninja style. I prefer a dollar store sword. They even look cooler after cutting the guard.

This was bugging me. The word you're looking for is "patents."

You know whats funny? If FA24 got one of these, just imagine what he could do with these. Maybe make them fly 100 ft! Or maybe make them kill people! Man, I wonder what he s thinking of doing to these things. :angry: :ph34r:

I can think of a few ways to integrate a titan or 2k into this. It wouldn't be very functional, but it would be fun to shoot people with.

The only problem I'm seeing is that they're all foam. I could see hollowing out the handle to house the pump in, and then putting the barrel and airtank on top of the blade... Wow. A zillion ideas are coming to me right now. I need one of these and a 2k!

Actually... I think these would be awesome to paint, and have sword/gunblade matches at a war. It'd certainly be something new and creative.

At least, it could be used as filler between the end of a round and the start of the next, when a good chunk of the participants are dead. Beats standing around.

The buzz bee/Ja-Ru brand swords have a small plastic tube in the center to give the foam a little bit of stability. This is probably very similar. It wouldn't be hard to swap it out.

I personally think these swords are crap. I'm serious. $14 for a peice of crap. Who uses melee these days? Just shoot someone, or be creative - in airsoft, if you tap the gun against a person it is considered a "knife kill".
So not worth the money :P

We refer to that as a "barrel tap", of which, Lancers reign supreme. And if you don't like swords, then don't buy them. It won't matter much anyway. Most major wars will not allow them.

Not to turn this into a speculation tread, but wasn't this on a list of patents in the closed N-Strike game thread.It was there along with the spartan and raider.

And a pic of the swords if you didn't see them, or want another look. http://farm4.static....707d9c9.jpg?v=0

EDIT: Here are the patents for lazy people:
Raider CS-6 - 76691227
Shadow Fury Foam Swords - 76691228 <------------------Swords are here
Magstrike AS-10 - 76691229
Attack Unit Dart Blaster - 76691230
Slam Fire - 76691232
Stampede Rev 12 - 76691235
Rampage EBF-25 - 76691236

Thank to shoeshine5 for the patents and slowguitarman for spelling the word "patents".


I could be wrong but i feel like the Spartan was included in those patents. And yeah when i saw that i thought, well i'd bet money the other patents will turn out to be real. so i'm content to wait in 2009 for some amazing things. the blue one looks pretty good by the way.

Glamdring, while I share your enthusiasm about potential new blasters, speculation is not generally encouraged on this forum and several topics have been locked as a result of it already. If you want to discuss the potential new blasters with a specific member, there's no problem with you taking it to PM.

On topic: Are we certain that the yellow one's tip wasn't simply broken off in transit?

Is there any sort of training for the testing?

You have no idea. I had to wrestle a bear into submission, naked, and asphyxiate it by wrapping my penis around its neck. Half of the people either crap their pants or the bear mauls them in the process. That was on the first day, too. They don't just hand out badass certificates, you gotta earn that shit.

On a more serious note, I think I might be buying the Thunderfury just out of sheer coolness factor. While I'm not big on "boffing" or Nerf melee in general, I do admire the weapons to a certain degree. If anyone pulls one of those on me during a war and attempts to use one on me, I will not hesitate to shoot you in the face. Just giving everyone a fair warning.

Hell ya, Thunder Furry-Blessed Blade of the Windseeker. That's one of the main things (The name) that got me interested in buying one of these babies. That sword ingame looks so badass though....I'm not gunna' lie.

It's hard to tell if the tip wasn't broken off. But, considering the hilts are different, and the yellow one appears to have a fuller (groove) along the blade while the blue one doesn't, I would be less inclined to assume that they have a similar tip. I'm more interested in if they come with some sort of scabbard.

Either way, $14 is way too much.

That was downright VACC-esque, sir--whether for good or ill I cannot say.

I can. I remember the Power Ranger weapon ads. I don't see this commercial being much better.


Now that I think about it, though, I kind of want one. There is something hilariously awesome about blocking darts with this thing in a game of Assassins and then cutting my would-be killer down. I suddenly have the desire to go watch Kill Bill.

...Foam Swords...are ...REALLY AWESOME
You can watch this really crappy nerf war video [by me] and more than half of it deals with "MASHOONGA"
(ask Baghead and Falcon for more info on that)


There's also [another crappy video...by me] of FALL CAFF :
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XgssSnGUnhs
watch 1:57 where SorrowX kills like 5 people with swords...its pure Effeminateness
