Well, its January. And what do we get in January? Nerf News! And things look pretty intense this year, as Hasbro has shown what it means to be the industry standard in toy guns, with the 2016 releases looking unbelievably cool! Let’s check them out!
First of all, all these images and news are credited to Toyland, who got the information straight from Hasbro. The only thing I can be credited with is speculation, so let’s dive right in!
Nerf Rival Khaos MXVI-4000
Full-auto Rival blaster, now without any modding. Indeed, the Khaos looks some serious business with that four row magazine. Greek names do lend these Rival blasters an ‘elevated’ status, and that sweet design only furthers the Khaos’ case.
It’ll reportedly retail at around US $70, and will take 6 D-size batteries to run. A tough sell, but hey, it looks cool.
Nerf Mega Mastodon
Nerf’s first motorized Mega blaster looks like a beast. But firing a flurry of 24 darts from a turret comes at a price of $80 and an additional 6 D -size batteries(again). Sure, the carry strap is a nice touch, but it is in no way a war practical blaster.Although not confirmed, I think that it will be a plunger based semi auto blaster (makes no sense :/), thus explaining the large area behind the turret. It is, in some ways, a Mega Vulcan. Enough said.
Nerf N-Strike Modulus Tri-Strike Blaster
If you thought the Nerf Modulus line was lame, you have another thing coming. The $50 Modulus Tri-Strike utilizes all the free space of a standard full-size blaster to give, well, a pretty cool looking blaster that has a lot of bells and whistles. The stock looks long enough and has an air pump (or a HAMP style pump), The front attachment is a 4 shot (or 2 shot?) HAMP style Mega blaster,and the core blaster is a sweet looking bolt action pistol with a freaking missile launcher mounted over it. Talk about over compensating.
Nerf N-Strike Elite Hyper-Fire Blaster
I’ll pay ridiculous amounts of import fees as long as I get my hands on it first, because finally, a successor to the Rapidstrike has arrived, and it is looking money!
This $50 blaster has had me swooning over it since I first saw its picture.With an advertised rate of fire of 5 darts per second, hints of a selector switch and the sleek, mil-sim shell, it just looks like the real deal. What’s more, there might be a Lipo battery pack in this blaster, because that funny rectangular shape in the stock suggests only one thing, and it’s virtually impossible to fire darts that fast from alkalines. Let’s wish for the best!
Be sure to drop in a comment regarding any queries or further speculation. Until then, see ya!
