At least they took the time to make the Nite Finder and Recon blasters that have been featured look like they were worked on. The Longshot has almost no major aesthetic mods from what I can tell.
i09 has this to say about the matter:
Looks like they burnt all their money on dinosaurs and eyeliner for the sixers. The leftover money was spent spray painting these $40 Nerf guns. Oof.
