New 2014 New-ness
First up, I suppose I may end up owing a well-deserved apology to the ZombieStrike Slingfire. The initial photo I based my first impressions on with this blaster made it look short and stubby. I even likened it to the state of Ohio. The new photo has it looking much more rifle-like and I expect this to be a pretty comfortable blaster to use. Still not quite the heft that I enjoy from my beloved Longshot, but it it'll at least fill that "large Nerf rifle" void in terms of length for folks who liked that.
different variations of this model out of my head and onto the screen. This shows us the other side with that 4 AA-Battery door that's forward of the trigger grip. I still think this blaster would look way cooler in Elite Blue, as I don't care for the Orange-on-Orange Juice colorscheme. This angle gives us some depth of the blaster and it's rocket-storage stock that looks deliciously hefty. I don't think I'm alone in my hopes that the rocket storage will be able to store a water bottle or beverage that I can run a tube through to have on-the-go refreshment as I slaughter my foes with foam dart goodness. It's the little things that make life fun, you know?
There's a Rebelle bow, but I've never really covered that stuff (nor do I care to). It's not that I don't like girls, far from it. It's just that, well, I've never been the rainbows & unicorns bit. Probably explains why I never got on the Brony train, but to each their own. Speaking of "own", I can't wait to see how these blasters perform! I'd say I'm most excited for the Demolisher, interested in how the Slingfire feels, and curious how the Thunderbow will work.
