K-Mart Exclusive release includes two recolored SideStrike blasters, one that is white with blue accents and the other one in white with orange accents. These do not include the holster that the ZombieStrike version comes with. The two-pack retails for $24.99 at K-Mart while the ZS one normally retails for $14.99. So, if we chop that 2-Pack in half, these blasters are technically worth around $12... which seems about right since the Firestrike (almost the same blaster) retails for that. As long as you think the Holster that the ZS Sidestrike comes with is worth $2, then the K-Mart twofer makes sense.
The Sidestrike has a twisted sister: the Firestrike. Both share nearly identical internals and performance and both can hold two darts. They also can both be used with the holster that the ZS Sidestrike comes with, which is sort of nifty... unless you're OCD enough to not like having an Elite blaster in a holster that has a gigantic "Z" logo printed on the side of it. Still, most Nerf fans that followed the release of the Sidestrike will tell you that it was likely initially intended as an N-Strike Elite blaster. Some fans, like our friends at SBNC, went so far as to recolor the blasters in their "proper" colors. To those folks, the K-Mart exclusive recolors are kind of neat to see that idea realized.
Whichever version you wind up with, this is a fun blaster with great out-of-the-box performance that can easily be modified to get even better results in a nifty looking little shell! It's comfortable to hold, even with it's small grip, and it's easy to use. It's really a nice little sidearm that packs a punch and looks pretty slick. The two-pack release also reminds me of the N-Strike yellow Scout blasters that was a K-Mart exclusive a few years ago and follows the same "cure that OCD matching habit with your arsenal" solution that it served, too! In many ways, the SideStrike is like an Elite-ified Scout anyways, what with the top slide prime, the compact size, and the handy dart storage, it makes for an excellent successor.
