    Don’t seem to have access to the edit button from my home PC, but here an update:

    They are back online and even cheaper at the moment I posted this. The same blasters are listed more than once in the search below for some reason, and only some of them will ship to home from online. If they aren’t in stock online, or you have a Toys R Us nearby, get a screen capture of the sale on your phone and the store will honor their own online deal:

    I suggest saving the page or keeping it open in your phone, since the items get temporarily removed online as they go out of stock.

    I hope “bumping” my topic is ok since its been a while and Im updating the information on this item.

    I was at ToysRus today and delighted to find a Nerf Rival Atlus, and close by these vests were on available. The Rival vests were a very reasonable 19.99 USD. In fact, non rival nerf vests are on sale for just a few bucks OVER that online. The hit points rely on your opponent to be paying attention to when he gets hit, and he must manually pull up a two-sided yellow/black piece of cloth sown into the upper left part of the chest, and fold it over on one side or the other. Both the black and yellow side have velcro strips at the end, to hold it in place in either position.

    I didn’t buy it so I couldn’t tell you if it fits a grown man. For 20 bucks it seems reasonable, provided you have enough people to play games with nearby.

    What exactly is the 350 GSM material, is it more of a paper/cardboard, or more like a plastic? I like the concept but Im not fond of paper materials that tear. Making the stands for the targets could be on the annoying side too, though Im sure I can just make stands out of my K’nex parts.

    Another thought, have you tested the targets to see if Boomco darts stick to them? If they do, are they sturdy enough to survive the dart being pulled off?

    Hmm, cant seem to find an edit button to update my previous posts.

    For those who don’t know, the Dynamag was intended to be able to use 20 dart clips, but when the blaster was marketed towards a younger age group, a couple of springs of lower strength were used. As it turned out, the weaker springs could not properly support the weight of the larger clips, and the blaster would constantly advance past a few shots, and sometimes the entire clip would fall out. This is the problem Im trying to fix. I just need to get a few proper springs for it.

    I am aware that that the actual launching mechanism uses compressed air from a sort of rubber bladder, however, some of it’s mechanisms use springs in the process of moving that air through the system to advance the ammo clip before it is used to launch the ammo. Im wondering if anyone here knows if any of those particular springs could be used to replace the springs in the front of the Dynamag, and give it enough force to hold the 20 dart clips in place without dropping them.
