Just a quick heads up for anyone who might be interested, KBToys.com has the Nerf Crossfire in stock. You can get either a blue or red version of the gun, and they cost $9.99 each.

And HasbroToyShop.com has the "New" Nerf Tech Target in stock for $14.99.

Hopefully these will start showing up in stores soon.

People have said it looks like a redesigned Scout, euphemism shot one and said it got 20', I believe him. Don't waste your money on a Scout, though it does look sexy...

Euph was wrong, my eyeballing range says 30-35'. I expect with an extra spring and a good barrel mod done you could get 50. Plus the ammo holders are the sex. T'would be good if someone had a modded DTG that they really like/use, otherwise it would be, as you said, a waste of time/moolah.

My suspicions are confirmed.

I'm going to buy as many old-type Tech Target sets (preferrably the ones with the bonus extra pistol), because I think they are the most powerful 'out-of-box' (no banding or spring mod), simplest to mod spring pistols out there (even if I don't like the ergonomics or looks of them).

And I'm sure Hasbro was aware of that, hence the Scout look-alikes with the new TTS. As well as with old NFs compared to EX-3s.

The new line up does look nice, though.

Compare the length of the gun to the length of the darts in it, doesnt it seem a bit small? I couldn't see it getting very good range at all, but what do I know?

The Nerf designers are aiming at awesome looks, but not focusing on the performance... I disagree with their choice.

If they left out performance, their toys wouldn't sell. Who wants an awesome looking gun that barely shoots the dart out of the barrel? Performance may not be most important, but it still has to be there.

Yeah, I could be a little off about range, my eyes said 20-25 but whatever. I'm afraid I do have to (semi) disagree with you about the extra spring as the hasbro guys said the internals are almost the same as the scout, meaning that wierd, weak trigger mechanism. Granted if the spring had low enought tension it might work but I wouldn't want to risk it. Of course if someone else would want to risk it, then all the power to them.

Little kids may think they look cool. Oh, the colors! Hasbro does aim for a young crowd. The company has still released good guns for the Nerf Community, so I wouldn't complain. I can't say the same for the water war community, which Hasbro has lowered their target age to basically infants. I have boycotted their last 3 lines.

Hasbro, like other big companies, tends to trim preformance if it means wider profit margins and cheaper production costs. They also rely on gimmicks, colors, and other external elements of their products. If you don't like it, the best alternative is homemades. I've been telling people that for at least a year, and many have listened. Nerf homemades especially have a hell of a lot more potential than most realize. Get innovating! ^_^

to be honest, high performance in a nerf gun = higher chance of injury to children which=lawsuits. however cooler looks mean kids want to get them for christmas. I mean face it nerfing is intended for kids, even though us older (more mature kids at heart) play with them. The best we can really hope for is a gun that can be easily moddified for good performance, but out of the box is still super safe for all to use. what would be awsome if nerf designed guns with that in mind.

Guys, why are you worried about the colors and looks. The shell looks awsome to be, but the paint is all wrong like said. Does that mean it is not fixable? No!

On ebay I found this:

http://i17.photobuck..._09/newnerf.jpg

Like I said it was from ebay so I can't take credit. I know I can't post listings not from myself but at least I only included the picture. These are part of the dart tag line apparently and they are nite finders. What I am hoping is that they have the original spring. However, since I (opinion based without solid proof) see nothing good coming out of this line, I predict the springs will be even weaker than the EX3. Wait, that shouldn't be capitalized... ex3.

The reason the handle looks small is that it has a double finger trigger. And I think the firestrike, which has been mentioned before, is just a repaint.

Firestrike/NF is a repaint of the ex3's. The shell of the crossfire is not fugly. I've already got plans for a NF in there. I have small hands so I think that shell would feel awesome to me.
