Wilderness Explorers Talon Mini-BlasterJuly 3, 2017
Not all blasters can be winners. Take, for instance, the Talon. It has several things going for it. A unique color scheme, official Boy Scouts of America branding, and a rather cartoonish take on “real steel” for its shell. What it lacks is the MEGA POWER it claims on the box. Needless to say, if you don’t care about the Boy Scout branding, there’s not much reason to buy this blaster.
I should note that I saw this blaster at Toy Fair 2017, where it was featured in the Kid Galaxy booth. It didn’t improve between then and now.
Nerf Rival Nemesis ReviewJuly 1, 2017
Here we are, a month away from the official release of Nerf’s fall lineup. Many new blasters have appeared, but none with quite so much hype as the Nemesis. Perhaps the ultimate evolution of the Rival line, it meshes the foam blaster and paintball worlds together in a full-auto, hopper fed package. The Nemesis also demands a hefty price tag of $99 here in the United States. Luckily, it’s worth every cent.

Endwar and Foamcon: THE FIRST DAYJune 23, 2017
Greetings from a very large gathering of Nerf and HvZ enthusiasts! I’m going to be busy catching up with friends, running from the horde, etc.But in the meantime I’ll try to document the happenings! It’s been a blast so far (groan) and this weekend is going to be lots of fun.
Although I’m questioning this guy saying we should attend a meeting at 12:01am tonight, when official gameplay is in effect. I think he just wants my brains…
Prime Time Toys Dart Zone Info Drop!June 13, 2017
This is one of those strange posts where we tell you to watch other people’s content. Which is perfectly ok, because they have cool new info for everyone to see!
Prime Time Toys has lots of new blasters due out this summer, including the Dart Zone BallistixOps Powerball. It’s a Target exclusive, featuring an eight ball hopper that is fully compatible with Rival rounds. Pump action springer, claims of comparable ranges, and for $17.99. See Foam From Above’s Video for more.
On the dart firing side of things, Coop772 has his hands on the QuattroBlast, Light Command, and Dart Storm. The former is a direct competitor to the Doominator, but for $19.99. The other two are belt-fed flywheel blasters, each with their own features and gimmicks. All, however, have much higher stock firing speeds than current Nerf Elite blasters. See his video review of all three here.
We have more updates coming in the future. Stay tuned!
Review: Nerf Elite DisruptorJune 10, 2017
Last year, Blastersparts.de revealed the Elite Disruptor. It certainly confused the fans as it was almost identical to the well-received Strongarm blaster. With less paint detailing and less plastic, it would appear that the Disruptor is Nerf’s cheaper version of the Strongarm. It’s possible the Disruptor may end up replacing the Strongarm. Anyway, let’s take a look at the Disruptor and see how it compares with the Strongarm.
