I was surprised to see these on shelves so soon after the Toy Fair, but my curiosity simply couldn't be stopped. As a Captain America fan, I was interested in seeing how this "Brigade Blaster" would hold up, especially with the dismal 20 Ft range listed on the box. I had higher hopes for something that would be labeled as the Captain's blaster. Soon after opening it and checking it out, I realize now why Captain America is more fond of his shield if he is supposed to defend our country with this dismal blaster. If anyone should've been able to give this blaster a great review, one would think that my bias towards the Cap would've prevailed, but even a hero knows when something just isn't right. Watch my review and you'll see why I'm convinced this blaster was developed by the Axis powers.
