I stumbled upon this searching for Big Bad Bow on google. It's an interview on Monster.com with an editor from Hasbro and he mentions the Hasbro engineers modding their guns and also talks about nerf a little.

"Monster: Have you ever been shot in the face with one of those Nerf Crossbows?

Hasbro Editor: No, but I once got shot in the back of the head with a Big Bad Bow, which is a lot more powerful. It has screaming arrows, so I could hear it coming before it hit me. Sometimes the engineers modify the guns to be more powerful than the ones we actually sell to kids, so you get smacked upside the head by a dart going forty miles-per-hour."

Cool stuff, check out the article here.

"Hasbro, Inc. is a toy manufacturing company based in Cincinnati, Ohio."

Sweetness. Hasbro is here in Cincy. The other interesting thing in the article is that they specifically mention the Crossbow, which seems to show that the Crossbow is semi-infamous for being an excellent Nerf weapon.

Yeah, I would like to know if he has an email, too. Imagine those guys-they probably can get all the free Nerf guns they want! Oh, and Hasbro isn't in Cincinatti, it's in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.

that may be true, but it also states that the Big Bad Bow is more powerful. MWUHAHA!!

It doesn't surprise me at all that the engineers modify the guns. Seriously, they would know more about how to do it than we would, and if you have the ability to make the guns more powerful, then why the hell not?

You know what this means don't you? We must organize a war against these supposed "engineers" who work for this "Hasbro". A reckoning must be brought forth. EVIL WILL BE DISPELLED!!

Hold on, what's going on? Get away from me.

I bet we'd kick thier pansy asses... or more likely their mods would rock ours and we'd go home feeling odd and stupid.

And you, sir, have said quite enough.

We apologize for the comments made and opinions expressed by certain peoples whose names will be ratained for safety reasons. The opinions expressed here are not that of the Nerf community, but that of an individual. We are pleased to inform you that the offending parties have been sacked, subdued, and placed in a cage with an angry coked out grizzly bear wearing pants.

Please ignore this minor inconvienence and continue on with your Nerfy ways.

Yeah, but I'm pretty sure that they use the same ammo that the gun originally came with. And they probably didn't do the barrel relocation for the x-bow. And stock, the BBB kicks the x-bow's butt. Yeah.

Well, I emailed Hasbro, and they said that there is no one named Gred Hadden that works there anymore. It would be extremely hard to find his email address, unless we can find where he currently works.

Wow.

You know, the engineers at Hasbro are probably some really 1337 dudes, but it's those fat, lazy ass CEO bastages that fuck everything up. "Nooo, it can't be that powerful, we gotta make money, and nooo, let's put some more sticker's here! I don't give a shit if we have pussy plane guns that shoot ten feet MONEY YOU BITCHES!"

I'd like to meet some of these dudes. Maybe we can team up and shoot up those CEO's.

It'd still be worth it to play like 'professional' Nerfers. There should be like actual Nerf Areans, like paintball areas. Now if that ever happens, that would be sweet.
