Hi guys. I saw these blasters on a Halo fan site and just wanted to share them with you.
These were displayed on this year's NY Toy Fair a few days ago. I wish they sold tickets to the public T_T

There's also a few new non-Halo related blasters included as well.

Here's a new tri-barreled gun

Wow, these are really cool! I see that the tri-barreled one is flywheel operated, but do you have any idea how the Halo ones will work?

Everyone hates engineers because they listen to what you say and then think about it.

I haven't picked up any Boom Co. blasters prior to this but seeing these I'll have to grab some of them.

The Carbine (long purple dude right?) is clip fed. Not 100% on the priming method.

The SMG (Red blaster) is also clip fed and I have speculated it is pump action. If that blaster ends up being pump action it would be a game changer for BOOMco.

B00m13? Damn I feel old.

Honestly, this just keeps proving to me that Mattel has a seriously talented industrial design team behind them. As soon as they can get the performance there, they'll really have something special. I love the fact that they have the Halo brand behind them. Even if the blasters don't perform, they still have a marketable toy. The tri-barrel blaster looks amazing. Whether or not its performance is suitable for the NIC is questionable with its "no barrel platform." Whether or not these appeal to us, Mattel has been doing a great job in making blasters that are more "indoor office war/younger kid" centered, which I feel Nerf has been unintentionally moving away from.

EDIT: I was super dissapointed there was no covenant carbine initially, until I saw that they did make one, and it's on the blaster labs page. This has made my day.

Heh, don't feel old Spud, I'd trade ages with you if I could. Please remember to mod safely in well ventilated areas, heated/burning plastic fumes is very bad for you. And no problem guys, glad to share the info, please make sure to support these Mattel BoomCo. guys well, spread the word around. Even tell those who aren't nerf, but just Halo fans. They might like a well recognizable Needler.

I wonder if that Needler replica will actually load the darts from up top like the Type 33 Guided Munitions Launcher?
Just a thought.
