If I remember correctly, Airsoft 999 are you from seattle? If so what outlet are you getting these guns from and where is it located. Am I confused as to were you live?

Well I'm in NY, and any toy liquidator within a 45 mile diameter of Buffalo has been robbed of any X-Bows. I have 31 now, and they might be up for sale. If not, They'll be up on eBay- maybe like 20 of them for an affordable price. Prolly 35-45 including ship. However, CX has first dibs on like 4 of these, if I sell them.

Holy Shit! That isnt even funny. I would also like to see a picture. I believe you, it's just that I will probably never be able to see that many Crossbows in one place at one time.

Yes, Airsoft999, I myself would like a crossbow from you. PM me if you sell them here, or I will just continually go check ebay.

Are these stores K*B OUTLETS or a chain called toy liquidator, and do they have a site to find stores in the US?

And Air do they have a variety of other older guns in addition to the x-bows at these stores?

If you live in San Francisco or towards Seattle I know where you can amass a sum of x-bows cheaply. Cwxq you may be interested. The KB outlet on your way to seattle off of I-80 is getting a huge shipment of x-bows next monday. AIM me if interested at M0nkeyMastah

Can someone with one of these new xbows take a clear picture of the front and back of the box and post it or email it to me please? The higher the resolution the better.

Well, actually, we WISH it happened. I don't think anyone is completely sure yet. My guess is they found a large backstock and they sent it to toy liquidators. As far as spring guns, it's pretty much the best thing out there. As far as feel goes, it IS the best thing out there.

OK, im REALLY confused here.

How the hell did KB toys, a company whos on the brink of going out of business, obtain thousands of Nerf crossbows (presumably)? It wouldn't be too bad if it was a gun such as the blastfire or the sm1500, but the crossbow has been out of circulation for nearley 10 years.

Am i seeing this wrong? I don't really know WHAT to believe here.

So where can you find the toy liquidater locations online? Many of you act like its a bad thing that they are going down in value, by probably not a whole lot. I think its great for the nerf community.

Airsoft999 reported finding them at KB Outlet as well as Big Lots. I emailed the Big Lots corporate merchandise department asking if they were planning to stock those on the west coast as well. Just got a reply indicating that they don't have Nerf Crossbows in any stores.

This wouldn't be the first time that a store employee was unaware they carried Nerf guns but it's still a little troubling. I have yet to hear back from the people at KB. Perhaps I'll spend the afternoon phoning my local stores.

Cool cxwq, I 'll try and check some local store chains. I seriously doubt a random employee could answer questions about a specific toy, he was probably just saving himself some time.

In this case it wasn't a random employee, it was someone in the dept responsible for selecting merchandise to go out to stores. She did a check in their merchandise tracking system and found nothing.

I have now visited one KB Toy Outlet (aka Toy Liquidator™) and called 4 others and come up with nothing so far.

Then I guess it's time to dig up the time travel thread and figure out which forums member went back to 1995 and put a palatte of x-bows in storage.

PS. Cx: Concentrate more on finding where they're coming from and less on eat shit-bidding my dad! :P

losing? It had a few hours left... He appears to have put a max higher than I'm willing to pay. Sorry about that though, I thought a few hours was within reason.

Edit: Just got one of the buy it now @ $45 guns from epsilon prime... I'm tired of this whole bidding thing.
