Biggest "nerf Gun" I Have Ever Seen
Posted 02 December 2009 - 06:42 PM
It is marked as Hasbro 2003 and it is huge. I believe that it is supposed to have a large inflatable body, which I do not have, but here is the base of the rocket next to a NF.
Here are the parts as far as I can tell. I will be cracking it open soon and will post pictures when I have them. I just thought I would get it up here sooner rather than later.
The right hand leg has an air/water thank on it, the other two legs have leveling screws on them. The upper left leg has a plastic dome on it with a ball barring that engages a safety when it is level. In the center top of the picture you can see the squeeze bulb that operates as a trigger. Something I did not get a picture of is that there is a safety mechanism in the top of the "rocket" where the inflatable top should be. I have gotten it to dry fire, and it is terrifying.

Check this out.
For another size comparison, this is with the inflatable top part.
here is a link to a picture of just the rocket.

I think it will have some serious fun potential once I disable the tilt safety.
If it is at all like the Iron Man Rocket Launcher (and I see recockulous similarities) all you have to do is put a drop of hot glue over the little hole the marble covers.

-Blasters shoot darts that tag people
I do not play with guns.

I gave up on mine quite some time ago. I have not done so yet, but my plan was to junk the parts, and use the pump and a few other parts separately. I have at least one part that yours seems to lack - a vinyl weight band that goes near the head of the balloon for aerodynamic stability. If you find a balloon that seems suitable, you can email me for details. Without it, you can probably expect the balloon to act like an even bigger fin than the ones in the back, putting the whole rocket into an immediate spin reminiscent of the most spectacular of NASA launch failures.
Yah, I just tried to launch it without a body and it was a spectacular failure. I plan to make a body of some sort from scratch, I can't help but wonder if it NEEDS to be 6 feet long...

So...is this the nerf equivalent to a nuclear missle? Launch it and you automatically win the round?
After sweating 3 inches away from a screen for one and a half hours just mindlessly twitching your fingers?
I guess this would be true if you had a very self reflecting name like [=420=] aLt CaPs GaNgsT3r.
Anyways, I see potential in this as an awesome Nerf game. Having missiles deep in each team's territory would be like a defend-the-core match where the opposing teams must pump up and launch the opposing teams missile(s).
