Well, during my run through the city today, I picked up a few pieces of information:

1.) Lanard is now doing a water gun line...we definitly want to be alert for any new Nerf blasters by them.

2.) There has been yet another version of the Blast Bazooka, this time done by a company called ES Toys. It looks a lot more like the Airzone (the first one) version, however, and is packaged on a cardboard...well, card, held on with zip ties. I was messing around with one in the store, it's almost exactly the same...and the inards smell like Plumber's Goop. ^_^

3.) Hasbro has been shipping out boxes filled with old products to outlet centers all over...check to see if you have any Toy Liquidators near you. I found mostly Nerf sports equipment, but I also snagged a Wrist Blitzer, a SplitFire, and a AT2K, all in mass packaging. Yay!

Yeah, the Blast Bazooka is now called an Air Bazooka and it's usually $7.
I can't comment on the Lanard thing really, but I also noticed that The Storm (ultra crappy water guns) dart shooters are now being made. I saw one at Wal Mart the other day but I was too pissed of at how much the water gun made by the same people sucks to look at it.
I also saw some AT1000's at K-Mart, but I didn't bother getting one since they also suck. Huh. If I can find an AT3K or 4K, I'll be a happy man. Maybe a Powerclip too. And a SM1500. And a SM5000. And a blank check with Donald Trump's signature.
Um, anyhoozers, where did you find the SF and AT2K again?

My local Sears has the whole Lanard X-tream and X-tream Air line. (Water and Air guns.) They include First, Triple, and Max Shot, Blast Bazooka, SSPB, Blow Dart Gun, and the Stomp Pad Rocket Launcher. Anyone interested in prices/pictures, just ask me. They have alot of stuff there.

3 AT4Ks at my local Zellers for $30 Canadian each.

PS. What do you mean "Toy Liquidators"? Toy stores, or a company of the name.

Thanks for the info Rags. I'll see if I can go to an outlet center anytime I'm in an area near one. ;)

Hunter, by toy liquidators I think he means big stores that basically sell any toys they can get their hands on at relativley cheap prices.

Toy Liquidators (notice the caps) is the old name for a division of KB that handles most of their closeout product.

It's now called KB Toy Outlet.

I've found $3.50 SplitFires and $10 PowerClips at my (somewhat) local Toy Liquidators in past years.

That sucks. The only KB in this small city went bankrupt or something. There might be one at one of the malls in Denver, though. I guess I'll have to pester my sister to take me there when she gets a Jeep next week.
