New blasters are coming for this fall, as Hasbro unveils a new Mega blaster,the Thunderbow. I must say,it looks pretty impressive,given the fact that you don’t have to reload after every shot.Five aligned mega darts make it pretty big though,but the 100 ft ranges are getting some attention.
The official description from Hasbro –
NERF N-STRIKE MEGA THUNDERBOW Toy
(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $39.99/Available: Fall 14)
Awesome NERF MEGA performance transitions from blaster to bow with the addition of the N-STRIKE MEGA THUNDERBOW toy. The bow’s dynamic arms and traditional pull back system can fire five NERF MEGA whistler darts in a row up to an amazing 100 feet. Includes 10 MEGA Whistler darts and holds up to five NERF MEGA darts at a time. Available at most major retailers nationwide and HasbroToyshop.com
How it fires is open to speculation, because the bowstring isn’t connected to the plunger,and there is no trigger to be seen around,so i think that there is an internal trigger,which fires off the plunger when enough force is built on pulling the bowstring.Anyway,thats my theory. It will perhaps appear in the London Toy Fair this January.It looks like it uses the same intelligent air flow like the Crossfire bow.
