Last week, the people at Knex were kind enough to send me samples of their current blaster line for review, while we wait on the new models shown at Toy Fair to become available. My sincerest thanks to them! I’ll cover the Flash Fire in another post, since it’s a different animal.
The second generation of KForce blasters included motorized and multishot blasters. Two models of the Rotoshot (with a five dart revolving chamber) can be found for $40, each including over 200 pieces in addition to the main blaster unit. Do they perform, and are they worth it? Quite simply, it depends on your enthusiasm for building.
I hadn’t attended a full Nerf event in months before this month’s HvZ, so I was really excited to get back into action. As usual, this Nerf Game Report will describe the blasters that saw use, the gamemodes we played, and in particular how the Husk made an impact in games.
While there were plenty of hits at this year’s Toy Fair, there were a few misses, as well as a few “WHAT WERE THEY THINKING???” moments. The following is a collection of just a few of those things.
Here we are, at the end of Toy Fair, trying to summarize all the great things on display. Why not end it with a list of the most impressive entries? We’re going to focus on individual blasters here which deserve special attention.
What can I say? Today was a big day for me, being able to see presentations from both Buzz Bee Toys and Hasbro. There’s lots of info to cover, although some of it may be a rehash of previous posts both here and elsewhere.
After doing more reading and more discussions, here’s part three of our Toy Fair Coverage. This post will focus on several lesser known blasting toy companies, or at least ones that don’t always come to mind. Why not start with Marshmallows?
Today, we continue our reporting, starting with comments from a short conversation with Reed McIntyre, VP Sales at Buzz Bee Toys. Forgive my paraphrasing, but I’ll try to get everything as accurate as possible. Then we’ll cover several more items of interest, and wait for large info dumps from Hasbro and Buzz Bee tomorrow.
