NERF: "CLEAR THE WAY FOR 9.9.10"
(Ages 8 years & up /Available: September 9, 2010)
Clear the Way for the newest N-STRIKE blaster coming on 9.9.10! First there was the NERF N-STRIKE VULCAN EBF-25 blaster, 25-dart, belt-fed, and fully automatic. Then the NERF N-STRIKE RAIDER RAPID FIRE CS-35 blaster hit the scene with its new, interchangeable drum magazine able to hold 35 darts. Now, continuing the incredible evolution of NERF blaster technology, the brand has created the most impressive NERF N-STRIKE blaster yet. NERF fans around the world will have to wait until 9.9.10 to see the unveiling of one of the most awesome and exciting blasters released in the NERF brandís 40 year history! Available at most major retailers nationwide and HasbroToyShop.com beginning 9.9.10.
NERF SUPER SOAKER SHOT BLAST Water Blaster
(Ages 6 years & up/Approximate Retail Price: $19.99/ Available: Spring 2010)
For the first time ever, the hydro-powered excitement of Hasbroís SUPER SOAKER brand and the peak performance and innovation of the companyís NERF brand will come together to form the ultimate in water blaster advancements with the new NERF branded SUPER SOAKER line. The biggest and baddest blaster in the new collection, the NERF SUPER SOAKER SHOT BLAST water blaster can drench your opponents from up to 25 feet away. All you need is a single pump to unleash a huge blast of water and soak them all! The customizable NERF SUPER SOAKER SHOT BLAST water blaster is compatible with the Tactical Rail System accessories and features adjustable and removable shoulder stock for maximum customization. Available in red or blue, each sold separately.
I'm not gonna speculate on the details of why mighty Hasbro wants you to be able to put a scope on the only other kind of toy gun that shoots more parabolically than Nerf guns, but there you are. The Shot Blast sounds like that old gun (can't remember the name) that shot a ball using water, or maybe the Switch Shots line. Exciting!
