Crpa, I just now realized why my question sucks. Nerf lost the arrow patent, so no more crossbows or BBB's or DT-3's....

Ok, I've recorded all the questions.

Everyone and their grandmother has asked whether nerf will make a spring rifle, or bring back old guns. I've got those, but lets put our heads together and come up with some of those questions that's so baffling that we've just pushed them out of our minds.

I'd ask if they were going to make hornet replacements like they did the scout. Maybe something like the wildfire that clips under the titan. And with the new color scheme, maybe something to replace the titan too.

I`d like to see another chainfed. This time make it with a trigger. Either spring powered or do an automatic with compressed air. I loved running around with a 30 round chain for the rototrack. But the ergonomics of it sucked and the damn thing broke.

Please don't flame for perpetuating this off topic discussion, but the site they were referring to was http://www.emachineshop.com/ They do custom parts, but it only makes sense for certain machined parts. Making a gun shell, for example, would be a vast waste of money, and complicated to work with their system.

Hey, Shut up.

Ok, we've got tons of suggestions. Now lets go with questions. Really, it's not hard. I'm sure there is something you would like to really ask the Nerf group that doesn't involve making or re-releasing a certian gun.

A chain fed gun would be cool. Ask the question I asked on Nerfhq, exactly what is the process to choose what guns are being designed and released, like is it artists that start the trend, or is it the engineers?

I got a feeling its the ID guys first then the engineering....

Hasbro,

Will you make use guns that don't have the stupid air restrictors in them so we can fire farther right out of the box? Aswell as for every nerf gun sold the store should give you the Extra darts for the gun.

They have air restrictors so little 5 year olds dont go shooting each others eyes out with a nerf gun they bought at wal-mart and so nerf dosent get sued. I was wondering if nerf actually uses ideas from these boards on their guns, probably not but its worth and ask.

I saw this:
"Could you make camo colored gun? "
and it really struck me because Hasbro would do that. Think as if you are seven. You see a gun that is CAMO! and actually SHOOTS! a projectile.

Anyway:
Why don't you assign at least one person to read these boards? God knows we have great ideas for the NIC, but a lot would be appealing to kids too.

Also, possibility of making modding easier? Like, make it to the point where if you open a gun, and pull a large pin out of the barrel, it will shoot like 20 feet farther. It won't occur to kids to open the gun, but we will be all over it. Sort of like a little "key" that makes modding easy, and Nerf safe for kids.

This = destroying the fun and point of modifying something.

In any case, Hasbro, could you create a stock stefan that is built for rifling (possibly you might need a matching gun for it..)?

Yeah it was a SM5000 remake.


Hasbro, there should be two classes of your Nerf products.

For 5 year olds: "Safe" guns with big air restrictors and wacky designs. It could be called foam shooters or something orny like that.

For us: Nerf guns. The kind that shoot good that would never need modding. Ever.

But modding a cruddy gun is just as fun as shooting someone with it. Some people don't mod just because they have to, but also because they want to. You don't need to have a Titan that gets 200 and some feet, but you mod it for fun.

Could you make more guns that shoot more than one type of ammo (ex. Triple Torch, Crossbow)?

Could you make more eight to ten dollar guns with high mod potential (ex. Nite Finder, AT2K)?

Just one question: Will these questions and comments actually be sent to Hasbro?

Hasbro has sent a engineer and a designer to NJ wars twice in the last two years. Talio, myself, and others have been there on both occassions. They have usually asked us a vartiety of questions on what we think about nerf and specific guns, and asked us if we had any. This is an attempt by Talio to garner a list of things that he could present to them if the oppurtunity should arise again.

In addition, One Man Clan and Talio have visited Hasbro headquarters to meet with the Nerf design teams. That was another unique situation the community had to present its case. I'd say we represented you guys pretty well in the past few meetings, but I think Talio wants a greater variety of input in the event some of us meet them again.

Hello. I'm the newbie who made the "what I sent to Hasbro" thread. I appologise for sending what I did to Hasbro, starting that thread, and not posting my ideas here first. I believe this is the least I can do to atone for my stupidity. Also, if anyone is reading this, I have my suggestions in that thread.

I've got a whole bunch of questions for hasbro:

what patents of blasters do you hold?

How much time/resources go into the creation of a new gun?

Where do you get your springs?

Where do you get your o-rings?

What is your best selling gun?

Do you think you could get away with putting links to nerf devotees' sites on your official website?

Do you actually have any problems with us reverse-engineering your guns and turning them into ministers of death? (as long as noone sues)

Any plans for Spring-powered primary weapons?

Do you consider Lanard a threat?

Do you consider Buzz-Bee toys a threat?

About how many units of nerf blasters do you sell annually?

Do your engineers browse the forums often?

Are you planning replacements for the Hornet/Titan in the N-strike system?

Do you have spare parts of discontinued guns laying around? and if so, would you mind selling them to the NIC.

Might you be so willing as to sell certain malformed/dysfunctional/broken guns to the NIC for parts?

What softwre do you use to design nerf guns?

Can you sell the foam you use for making darts to the NIC?

could you release packs of these glow-in-the-dark darts I've heard about coming with your new N-strike blaster, early?

Do you think the Nerf movies (like the Armagedon videos on NH) would make good advertising?

Is Nerf Arenablast still available? Are you considering a sequel? (perhaps for the N-strike set?)

What kinds of plastic do you use in the construction of various blasters?

Why on earth did you design the Maverick to let it's magazine swing out only 1/2" or so?

Will you ever release a blaster with a holster?

Can you show us some concept drawings of possible guns?

Will you give factory tours?

Was the N-Strike Inspired by Halo?

Is Nerf one of your staple brands, or is it more on the edges?

If we scare enough people with nerf guns, do you think they'll arm themselves accordingly?

Whew! that's alot of questions!
