Ompa how did you know I'm a guy?

Probably because you don't bitch about everything.

Did you guys get any info on the prices? I'm guessing the twin blasters will be pretty expensive, with all that "armor" and whatnot...

There you go, prices in there and some pics of the tagger guns. Are the darts for the tagger like a goey sticky or velcro?

Did you get to test fire the new guns, if so what kind of ranges can you guesimate.
Also how do the guns feel in your hands, balance and heft, that kind of thing.

I'm kinda miffted about all the spring guns, dont get me wrong I like springers, but ever thing in modderation. On a lighter note, can you tell us where the FireFly fits in the N-Strike. I guessing Hornet...
So That means that I can probibaly expect ot get thease in about four years which seems to be th average for guns gettin to Canada.

It doesn't fit on the n Stike anywhere, just another gun in the N strike like without fitting into the integration.

Canada doesn't get guns immediately because they have different safety standards.

Illadar - If the guns aren't in your stores yet, you may be able to buy them off ebay from someone who ships to Canada.

Yeah ordering guns of ebays a bitch to, shipping to Canada is almost as much as the guns them selves. And Amazon doesnt ship toys to Canada, but on a positive note a friend of mine found A couple of Double Shots. Damn that thing is fun.

Hmm... so the rerelease is going to be sweet, eh? Well, there will be no BBB, A-Storm, or any other arrow-shooting gun rerelease, for they lost the patent. So my best guesses are:

Powerclip
SuperMaxx 1500
Super Maxx 750
SuperTech Rerelease- I hope
SuperMaxx 5000

Don't forget the LnL, and is it really true that they lost the patent, I've heard it been talked about, but never got an official word on it.

I'd laugh so hard if they released another redesigned SM350.
Then I'd cry.
In all seriousness, I'm hoping for the SM750 and Splitfire (my favorite guns, but I don't dare to mod them heavy for fear of breakage).
Also, the more I think about it, the more the tag blasters seem like the Tek series. I just hope they aren't equivalent in crappitude... :/

They weren't allowed to take pictures of the upcoming guns. I think they said hasbro would send it to them time come. But anyway, thanks alot for taking time to goto hasbro and get this info for us!


Edit-Wait, i think he said that out of sarcasm, silly me. :wacko:

My guesses for re-releases would be: PC, maybe Splitfire, new Secret Shot?, or the SM2500? (the one with rotating barrel chamber).
I would like to see that SM thingy. It didn't really make it that far, but they could make a new one. If they did, and it was good... ;) *salivates* I could expect to see one or two pistols though.

That'd be my guess too, as well as maybe the SM line? I doubt they'll rerelease older guns from like before 2000. Talio and OMC, is there any way you could draw up pictures of what the new ones looked like on MSpaint then post them :lol: ?

Just out of curiousity, did you discuss with Hasbro the possibility of setting up an online shop from their site? Toys R Us is going bust, K mart is on it's way out, and who can really trust Wal-Mart/Target to deliver on Nerf guns?

Southpaw - I don't like you guys enough to do that.

Acu - Won't happen, that's expensive and I garantee they won't be able to move the revenue to justify it. Kmart is not on the way out, it just merged with Sears. Thats a good thing, they'll still be around.

Awesome news. The Firefly sounds freakin' awesome, can't wait for some pictures and info. I doubt they'll re-release the SM line - they practically just did with the Air Tech guns. I think they'll go back to the Air Jet guns (Powerclip, Blastfire, Splitfire, SS2). That would be huge. But I dunno about the old-school guns....here's hoping for a new and improved B'n'A.

What =JC= said...

Think about it...besides everyone always craving about possibly re-releasing the X-bow, what other blasters do we always talk about on these boards...the very boards that a few Hasbro guys are watching. It's all about monitoring what the consumer is wanting, and tryig to meet that demand.

I was just trying to visualize...N-Strike Maverick, Firefly, Powerclip, RCP-90 type rifle...who knows?

Props to Hasbro for keeping new surprises out all the time. It's a great time to be a Nerfer now.

Ok, so let me clear up one thing.

First off, the reason why the rereleased blaster is not being told is because the deal is not finalized and after last years fiasco with the powerclip that fell through, I don't blame them for wanting us to stay hushed about it for the time being.

I will say this though, you guys are going to be floored.

I want to give my personal impression of both guns we saw.

First off, the Firefly is just flat out cool. I have a feeling it's going to be a gun thats single barreled because the turret is being held in so it blocks the bottom barrels kinda like the maverick, so you're not going to be able to do much with barrel replacements. Hersh really liked that idea, and being that he's smaller in stature, it fit him better then the crossbow. I'd make a bet that single barreled it will shoot better then the Nitefinder.

Second of course is the <inside joke><retard>Dart Tag</retard></inside joke> guns. I really liked these guys because what they offer is a solid, simple design, multibarreled spring shooter that again I expect to shoot better then the nitefinder.

I think these guns could change the way we play. Nerfs springers seem like they won't be terribly powerful, but personally I'm getting tired of all the high rof primaries either being extremely weak, complicated or powerful. I think this will give a nice primary weapon to those of you who like toating pistols. This is what our game is missing, we've never had a gun like this, and I think it can really add something fresh to it. It's great that we have a high ROF gun that's neither cheap or overly weak.

That my two marks,

Talio.
