How much of your budget is allocated to advertizing?

How much if at all do you play with nerf guns?

Do you keep older model guns around to play with?

Do you have much interaction with other toy design departments?

If you could make your own ideal nerf gun what would it be like and do you think it would ever get past marketing?

How difficult would it be to design a gun that, can use self priming, such as an internal pump?

What type of plastic do you use for your guns?

How are the darts made that you create?

Is there any interest of you provoking the "modding" community? i.e. guns that can use differant parts/upgrades.

Any developments for spring-powered or alternativly powered rifles? i.e. motor.

Where do you come up with your ideas for future guns?

(as stated before)
Do you play with your own nerf guns?

(as stated before)
Do you consider Lanard or Buzz Bee Toys a threat?

Any designs for a clip or shell designated gun?

Any interest in any more fully automatic guns such as the rapidfire and wildfire? Do you still have the patent for them?

last of all....

Any type of reuseable "nerf grenade" in production, or in future production?

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

Absolutely. I personally garantee that they will.

Heh, I like that song.

One question I have for Nerf is:

"Why don't you have more distrubution to Canadian stores? We always seem to get the U.S.'s overstocks, and never get any of the new lines."

That's something that bothers me alot; Canadian toy stores don't carry Nerf stock under 3 years old.

I have some questions for Hasbro:

Why do you not sell your products online and only offer a form I have to mail in order to get refils?

Why did you buy out Koosh's series of airfoil guns, which have more range and more accurate, but don't make any of these type of guns?

The hell? Where'd my post go? Maybe it was on NHQ... Oh wel!

What does it take to get on the Nerf design team? Will you please hire me for a job there? If you don't, I'll shoot you with my Titans,*

*If they said no, I'd shoot 'em and ask them again while re-pumping and re-loading. Then, I'd repeat if necessary ;).

I know they're going to get mad at me for being off topic, but I'm new...

I did a google for this when he said something about it too. Apparently it's a new gun to come out this fall called the "Fire Fly rev-8" (sound familiar?). It has internal lights that flash to charge up the glow-in-the-dark darts. I don't know anything about the propulsion system yet, but I'll probably post any information I get beyond what is already public knowledge in a different thread (unless someone else beats me to it, of course...)

I would ask for the crossbow and lnl to be brought back into stores. Also I would go heavy on boltsniper's shell rifle. I would ask for magazine fed rifles that were spring loaded. We like shells, mags, and spring guns! <_<

Talio, I would recommend that Hasbro make a gun with a feed similar to the pc, but a springer, with one shot per cock. Also, it would be great if the darts were not staggered in the barrel, allowing for a stronger mod.

Hasbro, please, bring back the Vortex blasters. Use the same rings as before and start releasing them instead of four different colors of the same football each year. There was clearly a market for the Vortex blasters and you had a loyal fan-base.

Keep up the good work!

I agree Lemmy. How about integrating a Vortex blaster with a dart launcher in the inner part of the gun?

Ok well First of all they need to make more s.n.i.p.e.r.s instead of Semi-Auto's. Maybe make a Kit That Dosnt empty your walet that has a good primary and sidarm. Lastly with the whole N-Strike thing and its got like the guys using the nerf guns on the box sides well Whet The heck is the point of haing all those weapons if there are no enemies? So that brings me to the idea of making a new line of products that is weapons used by the N-Strike Enemies :D
