After weeks of speculation,Hasbro announced this new Zombiestrike blaster to various NIC blogs.Undoubtedly,this blaster looks hands-down cool.When we least expect it,Hasbro pops up a design so innovative,it sends us reeling back in amazement.
The official product description is as follows,
NERF ZOMBIE STRIKE SLINGFIRE Blaster
(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $29.99/Available: Fall 14)
Zombie hordes are no match for the ZOMBIE STRIKE SLINGFIRE blaster! The blaster’s lever-action allows for quicker reloads on the run and DIY-style designs lend an authentic feel to any NERF zombie attack. Blaster comes complete with one six dart clip and six ZOMBIE STRIKE darts which can be fired up to 75 feet. Features the NERF Tactical Rail System customizable with NERF N-STRIKE scopes and accessories, each sold separately. Available at most major retailers nationwide and HasbroToyShop.com.
The lever action looks very promising,as nerf puts it,”The blaster’s lever-action allows for quicker reloads on the run”. Also,i don’t see a clip release switch, which might mean that the lever is capable of discharging the clip when it is empty(using the dart sensor like that in the stryfe, perhaps). Furthermore, the DIY look gives it an improvised finish,making it look like a cobbled up blaster.But one thing that i am looking out for the most is slam-fire.It will be some serious fun to go ‘wild-west’ in your house,but how will you hold down the trigger when you are working with the lever? I hope it has a direct plunger inside,which will give us a 75 ft range.
Nerf has a lot to explain,for come the 21st of January,the London Toy Fair will reveal more about blasters known and unknown.
