Nerf News: Star Wars Battlefront Apollo Blaster Set

In case you haven’t already heard, Nerf will be releasing a new Star Wars Battlefront Nerf blaster set as a Gamestop exclusive, later this year. The Mandalorian themed blaster set will come with a Rival Apollo blaster, a face mask and seven rival foam rounds.

Here is the official Hasbro description:


(Ages 14 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $89.99/Available: Spring 2017)

Gear up like a Mandalorian warrior with the NERF RIVAL STAR WARS BATTLEFRONT APOLLO XV-700 blaster and face mask set! This special edition blaster and mask set features distinct Mandalorian decoration and comes with a fabric Mandalorian insignia patch. Experience intense, head-to-head competition with the precision and power of the NERF RIVAL APOLLO XV-700 blaster, sending foam rounds soaring into the air at a velocity of 100 fps, and featuring easy re-load magazine. Mask boasts a breathable design and elastic band for adjustable fit. Mask is not a protective device. Set includes reusable display box, blaster, face mask, and 7 NERF RIVAL foam rounds. Available exclusively at Gamestop.

The blaster set will be available at Gamestop on November 17, the same day Star Wars Battlefront 2 will be released.

Looks like a sweet package, especially if you’re a Star Wars fan. However, this set does have a hefty price of $90 USD, probably more than what the videogame costs. Oh well, that’s what happens when a product has the name ‘Star Wars’ on it.
