Hello all,

I haven't been active for some time now, but I came across this item and immediately thought of you guys.

Someone should set up a group buy if they were nice, or be a bit more entrepreneurial if they were so inclined.

Best of all, you can get the NerfHaven logo imprinted on them.


Here's the link : Marco Promotional Products

Wow, those look pretty nice. I personally would never use them because my eye protection is my glasses that I wear, since my glasses are rather large. Nice find by the way.

This "someone" you speak of does not exist. Why don't you do it?

Nice find, but unfortunately I don't think these are actual safety glasses. It doesn't even mention if they block UV rays, like the other wraparound sunglasses state. Hence, the 2 dollar price tag. They do look nice though, kinda like Oakley knockoffs.

You'll do a lot better if you spread the lips with the front. Trying to wriggle the back in there first seems a bit counterintuitive.

Yes, because we're firing UV rays out of our blasters.

... and we all know how much a BBB can punch through plastic. If it can't dent a cheap knock-off toy, it can't break these.

Well, I've stated my opinion. I'd rather be safe than blind is all. BBB's may not punch through plastic, but metal bb's can.

I might do it, if I can get the capital.

But, if I do this, I would sell them for 4.00 + Shipping, (which is a little less than the non-wholesale price per item). I would probably want to start out with a very small amount, see if I can get permission to use the Nerfhaven name and/or logo. And look at nerfstrong wristbands, those kick ass, and they have only sold about 150 of them during the time that they've been around. I want to know that these would sell, and that might just not happen.

I might be more likely to do this if someone (preferably local) went in on it with me.

EDIT: I'll ask around on the chat, to see if people might be interested in buying or partnering with me on these.

Damn it Foamfoot. Why is it that you kill every good topic with a retarded response a few days late.

Dude this is nerf, nobody's going to shoot you with metal BBs.

I'd like to invest in these, but I just don't see any potential demand. Almost everyone has some form of protective eye ware already.

Hell. I'd buy them. If they were emblazoned with the NerfHaven logo.
