>Mediator stock is a holster that also has a god-tier double-strike repaint inside of it

 

Oh, that's pretty nice, that double-strike reskin looks pretty good, I hope it's not too expensive

 

>Main blaster is essentially a minimized Rampage

 

A modulus rampage? That's kinda neat. The pump seems kinda awkward due to the position though

 

>Mediator front attachment uses an air tank

 

HOLY SHIT! HASBRO IS MAKING AIR TANK BLASTERS AGAIN!

 

Spring 2018 can't come soon enough

Regarding the core, it looks like the pump and grip are in similar positions to the Deploy, which was fairly comfortable. So, in a way, this is an Elite Deploy!  :P On a more serious note, it's pretty much the smallest pump-action box-fed platform possible.

 

Regarding the front gun, I wanna single it and add a 1' barrel!

OP, please refrain from using neon green text, it's very hard to read.

This gun looks great. I especially like the base gun. Will definitely have to pick one up. I'm curious as to how the internals will look.

I will pick up the base blaster if somebody designs a 3d print horizontal grip like OOD did for the artemis. I will definitely pick up the air tank masterkey and see what I can do with it.

Well, getting back on topic:

 

I like the design quite a bit on this, though really haven't been interested in other Modulus-style blasters (or even anything by Nerf at this point). It looks like an Oblivion space rifle or something.

 

It's pump action (probably rampage internals), accepts whatever stock/mags I want, and has an airgun front attachment. It's essentially everything I want in an HvZ blaster. It's very intriguing that Hasbro is making airtanks again.

They must feel somewhat pushed to do that instead of smart AR HAMP systems. (Dart Zone and Buzz Bee quality competition in the larger nerf hobby?)

 

My only worry is that Hasbro is going to make this brutally expensive like everything else as of late. I could easily see the base blaster and front attachment going in the $60-70 range together, which is disgusting. Alternatively, they could be selling them apart because they've become the priciest on the market and are feeling somewhat pinched by competitors.

I'm also not actively listening to Drac talk for 3 minutes straight, so if I get anything wrong someone correct me.

Sorry about that

We all want to single it, I plan on making it use attachments instead so I can either have a singled one that uses a hopper or have a 3 dart shotgun like it is stock

Well good news for you then, because the attachments are sold separately

I like how people are more exited for a blaster attachment rather than the blaster itself.

Yeah, but they're still going to be pricey and my bitching is justified.

They are probably going to be around $20 but also come in a bundle that's around $50-$60 that includes both the blaster and the attachments

 

Edit: Turns out each attachment is $15 USD according to blasterhub https://www.blasterh...d-hascon-event/
