The (New) Adventure Force Thundershot Review!

For those not in the loop: Buzz Bee has had some difficulties with putting the correct blaster on shelves. There were two versions of the blaster; the former had the trigger directly acting as the sear, while the latter had a standard catch mechanism. The former was not approved for production by Buzz Bee, but one of the factories in China made a production run anyway and shipped it to Walmart. That’s how several reviewers (myself included) bought blasters on shelves, only to have them break after light use (if not in the first few shots). After trying to rectify the situation and recall the unapproved blasters, the proper ones are now appearing on shelves (I bought two in Cincinnati). For a full story of the situation, see Mongoose Jake’s video here.

I did end up getting sent a new blaster…but I was already in the process of writing the review 🙂

So far, this Thundershot is actually exceeding my expectations. It’s still a weird, ergonomic mess, but it manages to be fun, effective, and a bit more versatile than the first version.

Dart Zone Pro Mk3 Price and Info Drop!

What a thing to wake up to on Saturday morning! As the October arrival of the Dart Zone Pro Mk3 moves closer, Prime Time Toys has made a post with more pics, critical info, and a price point of $129.99!

Nerf Fortnite TNTina’s Ka-Boom Bow Review

TNTina is a character in Fortnite…playable? Boss character? Person that goes on a poster to look good? What do I know; I don’t play the game!

Anyway, apparently when you have a popular character with a fun in-game weapon, Nerf will make their own version. In this case, Hasbro also gets to have their semi-regular bow blaster release. Is it practical? Not really. But is it fun to use? Absolutely!

Hero V2 Ball Dart Blaster Review

Five Below never fails to have interesting (if cheap) things pop up from time to time, be it Alpha Strike Uppercuts or offbrand oddities. It’s the latter in this case.

The “Hero” blasters have offered cheap blasting thrills in red and blue for a few years now, with varying small blasters. This time, however, it shoots Rival! Is it worth the $5 price? For most, not likely. However, if you enjoy tearing apart blasters, it may be worth a peek.

Adventure Force Dinoblitz Review

Dinosaurs have been one of the big trends in toys over the past two years, and both Nerf and Xshot have released dinosaur-themed product lines. The response from Dart Zone is…an old blaster with a dino scope?

Admittedly, this feels like a case where Walmart Canada asked for a blaster, got shown something, and asked if a dinosaur could be added. Nevertheless, the Dinoblitz is still a Blitzfire at heart, and a great blaster for the price.

War Report Lite: CoD Warzone w/ Rochester Foam Dart League!

I originally hadn’t planned on attending this event, due to the need for registering a team of four players, being from much farther away, and not knowing if I’d even be free. However, things worked out, I filled in as a fourth on a team in need, and I got to do Battle Royale with dart blasters in a large park!

Is it my favorite game type? No. Was I in the shape necessary for being out in the heat for hours, and running when needed? Also no. But was it fun to try? Heck yes! More down below.

Nexus Pro Alternate Colors Available!

Yes, my wife puts up with me wanting pictures sometimes.

Anyway, if the regular Adventure Force Nexus Pro isn’t quite your style, is listing and shipping both gold and alternate camo versions! Expect the same performance as before. Know that you will be paying extra for the limited edition blasters ($70 total for the gold, $60 for the camo), but if you collect blasters or want a performance one with better looks, then these will fit the bill!
