TITAN! That was the name of that damn bazooka like gun. I couldn't remember for the life of me. Hopefully the Nerf team will get us pics soon.

Pump it up and all 3 blasters are ready to go! ... detach the HORNET AS-6 and SCOUT IX-3 blasters-

That makes it sound like the Scout is an air-pumped pistol, as opposed to a SM250 like OMC and Talio described. In any case, I'm excited about this blaster. Why are they releasing it in the fall, though? I thought they would have it out by the summer. :blush:

You must learn to be patient, child!

I'm grabbin' this big boy the date it hits shelves. And unless Cx or someone else gets the drop on me, expect a mod for atleast one part of it. Of course, this means pictures will be needed and viewed frequently, so, uh...

Cx, wanna help the poor guy with only a gig of bandwidth out?

I'll host the best mod that comes out for it within the first week or two of release.

I'm undecided on whether or not I will join that competition...

He's an old-school Nerfer who doesn't hang on the forums anymore but likes to drop nice things in my inbox from time to time.

He was responsible for the pictures in this thread.

Actually, I met the man that designed the preceptor, and I don't believe he does lazer tag. Besides, thats nothing like the preceptor.

I do remember the Nerf crew mentioning something about lazer tag. I'm not sure if Hasbro wanted to move it under the Nerf groups watch. I think the rational was that its all toy guns or something, but i cant remember worth shit
