With today’s solar eclipse hitting the headlines, Prime Time Toys has taken the opportunity to promote the Light Command. As such, I figured I would review the blaster and give my thoughts. While I did receive one in the mail for review, I also went out and bought a second one for my collection. That alone should tell you that it’s a great blaster. But don’t just take my word for it – look at the pretty pictures and info!
Wow! Two Nerf news stories in one day! This time, we’re looking at big, beastly Elite blaster titled – the Surgefire! The image of this blaster was found on Baidu, although it originally came from a Taobao listing. Unfortunately, I couldn’t find the actual Surgefire listed on Taobao (must have already been sold), so this screenshot will have to do.
A Baidu user has posted an image of an unreleased Modulus Nerf blaster known as the Mediator. After analysing this image, here is all the information we know about this Modulus blaster.
Rumors of K-Force’s demise have been greatly exaggerated, it seems. As seen at Toy Fair, sales for the line were good enough to warrant not only a new lineup, but some experimentation as well. Therefore, the two new revolvers each have a unique priming and firing mechanism. The Barracuda features pump-action priming. Meanwhile, the Sabertooth features lever-action priming that fires on the return. They may not be your cup of tea, but they’ve made interesting additions to my arsenal.
After being launched in 2016, we haven’t really heard much from the Alien Menace line – however Toys R Us has just recently added two new Alien Menace foam weapons to their online store. I would’ve prefered seeing some giant, epic alien demolishing blaster, but hey it’s something.
The Stryker Force is the smallest and simplest in Buzz Bee’s latest line of releases, with their new dart designs being one of the main features. The Stryker Force is somewhat reminiscent of Buzz Bee’s older Air Max 6, though of course while that blaster used an air tank, this is a conventional springer. I will be reviewing Buzz Bee’s new darts in a separate post.
Note that the Stryker Force is in fact not a direct recolour of the Zenith, but is still physically similar. Interestingly, the Stryker Force uses the same shell as the Adventure Force Exact Attack found at Walmart. I believe the Stryker Force is simply the Zenith’s replacement in certain regions.
Disclaimer: This blaster was sent to me by Buzz Bee Toys for review. I will do my best to ensure that the review remains as objective and unbiased as possible.
Another game at Melbourne HvZ. We had some pretty good games and a solid turnout, and I had an opportunity to give some of the new Buzz Bee blasters a go in combat.
