Someone pointed this out to me in a photo I like to use. This oversized Vulcan is quite silly looking, but my friend said "Hey, are those MEGA Darts?" as he pointed to the pile of ammo sitting next to this behemoth. Although I'm sure this photo and this blaster came out long before the MEGA series was even in it's planning stages, I couldn't help but think "everything has to start somewhere". Only trouble is, I have no idea what this photo is from. Is it part of some oversized gimmicky toy at a Convention? Did Nerf actually build this thing? It was quite embarrassing realizing how little I knew about this photo and where it came from.
So... anyone know where it's from? If those darts it used were functional? I really could care less if the darts are actually what led to the MEGA Darts, since I don't like how they perform anyways. ...but now it's got me thinking.
