Vortex Pyragon Video UPDATED!

UPDATE!  Got this from Jared at Nerf Blaster Reviews.  It's a standard Vortex colors version of the Pyragon.  Legit or not, it's at least cool to see it in this color variation.  Source for the photo isn't exactly from the manliest website ever, but hey!  I'll take what I can!  Thanks for the intel, Jared!

And then there's this video, which has already been taken down once, but there's a kid with his review of the Nerf Vortex Pyragon that was discovered back in February during Toy Fair.  No other info about this blaster had surfaced since it had initially surfaced.  Unfortunately, the quality/professionalism with this video review isn't of the caliber we'd come to expect from someone like SG Nerf, Urban Taggers, or Nerf Mods & Reviews but it's all we have right now.  I'm gonna post it now, not sure if it'll get taken down again.

If this video does get removed again, I've got some notes I saved from this written below.

The reviewer states that it does indeed have slam fire and reveals that the drum is removable.  There is a clear window in the back side of the drum as well.  The disks are red with a white center.  He mentions a "switchin clips" feature, which I'm assuming is that rotating 10-disk clip idea that some folks had been tossing around.  It wasn't explained very well and the lighting in this video leaves something to be desired.  Mentioned is a release date "In the fall... or in the summer", so sometime around the Elite release from the sounds of it.  He calls the disks darts, so don't be expecting to be blown away by an in-depth analysis, but it's all we've got right now!  If any other info surfaces about this blaster, you'll find it here!

I got this link from Alex Woffenden on Facebook off of Urban Tagger's page in a comment he posted.


  1. oh so thats how they got 40 discs into a drum! theres multiple clips inside it and they must rotate when one is emptied!

  2. its pretty ironic how the post before this was vortex's first year, just saying.

  3. How come the n00bs get the good stuff? Seems kinda unfair if ya ask me.
    None-the-less, I'm happy to get another glimpse of it. Can't wait to get my hands on one of those "clip-drums".

  4. The barrel assembly seems to have had its length increased slightly. It would be sweet if that turned out to be part of the final design. The priming handle neutrally positioned ahead of the end of the barrel has always looked a little awkward to me, but the effect given off by this new image is pretty beefy. Summer is almost upon us; time to start getting excited.

  5. Still don't like the drum. I think the standard vortex color pic is fake. What the kid has looks pretty final,and I don't think Hasbro would show of something that's not final in their conference.

  6. they have more videos on you tube of it

    1. Yes, but back on April 19th when I made this post, this was the only one that was out there. ;)
