    That new Maverick colour scheme is way cooler than the older one. Want that gun in that colour. Almost makes buying a maverick worth it.

    A press release about the upcoming New York Toy Fair states that Nerf will have "...a reveal of the new, top secret Nerf Vortex blaster collection.....inviting fans to 'Gear Up for 9.10.11' when it will introduce the Nerf Vortex collection, a completely new and innovative blaster experience..."

    Maybe that's why there's no information on N-strike because It's being replaced with Vortex and that explains the new colour of the maverick.

    I think 2011 will play out like this: the new Dart Tag line, re-release of the N-Strike line with the new colours (as seen on UT's Maverick), and then the new Vortex blasters starting on 9.10.11 as they mention on the press release.

    That recent Toy Industry Association Toy Fair 2011 in New York.




    It flashes, makes thunder sounds and apparently can shoot darts.
    Of course, you can also smite people for a melee score in a Nerf war.

    I assume that shooting darts is just a joke right? Otherwise it is just plain silly.

    BTW do you know what the head of hammer is made of? Is it NERF foam or just plain hollow plastic?

    I got a chance to play with it at a local walmart. It's made of foam, though i didn't notice the hole since it still had it's "wrapping"

    Thor's hammer shoots lightning so why is a toy version that shoots darts silly?

    Because in comic version, the hammer can create lightning, there is no indication it can shoot bullets or darts at all. If Hasbro is going darts crazy, why don't they make the sword, shield, axe, hatchet also shoot darts? Plain silly.

    I'm sorry, but hammer, sword and axe are melee weapons and should remain that way, leave rhe projectile weapons to guns and bow.

    The hammer shoots projectiles 'in real life' (cartoon), so the nerf version also shoots a projectile. no brainer really.

    Has anyone seen these? the Jakk's pacific "max force" paper blasters.

    check the vid out at 2:36


    and there's more infoHere

    It's not nerf, but it's definitely relevant. They claim 100ft with their "sniper rifle"

    I read about it on the NerfOrNothing blog but apparently they have NO TRIGGER, relying on pull plunger firing like those Xploder blasters firing water pellets. That sux because it will affect the accuracy, no point of having 100ft range if you miss your target by miles.

    Spotted at Nerf Mods & Reviews, a yellow BBB re-release.



    Pic credit goes to Nerf Mods & Reviews, here.

    Also, apparently, a Barricade RV-10 with a bonus yellow Raider Stock. Apparently, because there aren't any pics.
    Now there is:

    Once again, thanks to NM&R. The stock looks EPIC. Perfect for people's ATs.

    Now that's nifty. I've always wanted a BBB. I hope that they come down here. They look completely awesome in that colour scheme. Although the shell looks a little different (correct me if I'm wrong), and I'm in mortal fear of a Reverse Plunger.

    BBB are direct plungered.

    Those prices are in US dollars, expect somewhere around the $40 for Australian stores.

    There are 2 versions of Thor's hammer by Hasbro.
    Note the size comparison with the lightsaber.

    The Nerf one is pretty small and doesn't have the snazzy features of the bigger one.

    I have no idea, to be honest.
    But they do deform, and seems to appear to be made out of soft hollow plastic, rather than solid foam.
