A Very Strange Find...

30 December 2008 - 01:07 AM

So I was browsing the Nerf section of my local Toys R' Us when I came upon something very interesting:

That's right:

On the shelf being sold alongside the refill packs. They're dated 1994 and are recommended for use with the Bow and Arrow or Arrowstorm. Naturally I asked the cashier to ring them up, and although they rung up as $6, she gave them to me for $1.99. Has anything like this ever happened to you guys?
*note, I didn't put this in the product awareness thread because it's obviously not a new product, and because I'm inquiring about similar experiences

Crossbow Stickers

Alrighty, I've made this thread to share some stuff with the community, and also to make a request. Here are my (poor) attempts to get a good picture of my crossbow's stickers:

As you can see, the colors are washed out no matter how I adjust my white balance. I'll share my sub-par quality pictures with the request that someone who has a NIB crossbow with the stickers still on the sticker sheet could make a good-quality scan of them, not just for me, but for the community as a whole. If you must know what I'm planning, I intend to remove the stickers from my crossbow, dye it red, and then make water slip decals of a recolored (red instead of purple) crossbow sticker, something which I'm understandably hesitant to do before I've got a good image to work off of. If anyone so desires, I could sell said decals for just the price of the decal paper.

A Few Supermaxx Questions...

20 May 2008 - 12:30 PM

So my new Larami Small Soldiers rifle arrived today, and I was wondering how much it differed from a standard Supermaxx 5000. It is trademarked "1994 Larami". The scope on it is different than the one for the Supertech 9k, as instead of being a flashlight it is a faux scope with an adjustable cosshair. The stock is also not molded into the gun shell but is rather a separate detachable piece after you unscrew it. The question I wanted to ask is this: when I pull the trigger, it does not fire like an airtech series gun with a consistant trigger pull. Rather, it simply goes *click* when you apply a certain amount of pressure and releases all the air at once. Is this how all Sm5k's are, or is this particular feature apply only to the Small Soldiers Rifle?

Discussion: Comfortable Blaster Shells

10 May 2008 - 01:22 PM

Ok... a little backstory to start this off. Last weekend I won a stock Crossbow and Laser Fang in a lot of toys on Ebay for the staggering sum of $42 plus shipping. I'm quite happy with the Crossbow: it feels so good in my hands and is almost like new, from the stickers being in good condition to the string still being attached. However, in the year and a half I've been involved in the NIC, I've seen the value of X-bows go from high to obscene. There's no way I'm ever going to modify it and risk it's breakage. However, this leads me to the point of this thread. I'm wondering what Nerf blaster, other than the Crossbow, has the most comfortable shell. By comfortable, not only do I mean that it fits the hands well, but also has a stock that is long enough to be shouldered comfortably. I've been eyeing the Sawtooth for this purpose, but I'd loveto hear some other suggestions.

I am ashamed. I have an unquenchable need to locate and purchase old Kool-Aid packets. I didn't want to clutter the Trading forum with my shit, so I figured that Off-Topic would be a more suitable place for this. First off, I am looking for any older packets of Kool-Aid that you fine people may possess. Also, if any of you guys have a flavor called "Sharkleberry Fin" in your local grocery store, please shoot me a P.M. (Don't be scared, I don't bite... often). To keep this topic from sucking any harder than it already does, let's discuss our favorite Kool-Aid flavors... or something. If you have anything to say about Kool-aid, say it here!
