    Nerf Blasters in Movies/TV shows

    Post  EMEUTIER on Tue Sep 27, 2011 4:54 pm

    First of all, I am still fairly new here and I hope this is the correct section to put this topic in, if not please move it to wherever is appropriate.

    Lately I have been noticing many TV shows using Nerf blasters as the basis of their prop weapons. I think that its mainly since I've gotten into Nerf that I actually recognize telltale shell designs.

    The first show that I noticed was 'Lost Girl'. Yeah yeah I'm sorta embarrassed that I was actually watching it... not really my style.
    In the first episode of season 2 almost right at the beginning was 2 huge heavily modified weapons which I believe to both be Vulcans.
    Hopefully Ill upload a screencap... there.
    They are a bit dark but you should be able to see the basic shape of the Vulcan underneath all that 'bling'.




    Next was the first episode of a show called 'Terra Nova'. If your wondering I usually dl episodes from www.eztv.it
    These guns were a bit harder to identify but after noticing the rather obvious design of the Nightfinder blasters used as pistols I went back and ran some scenes through slo-mo for a better look.

    Here is a couple screencaps of the obvious NF's



    Now this one was a bit trickier, I can see the possibility that it was originally a Raider with heavy mods done.


    But this next one I am at a complete loss as to what it could have been IF it was a Nerf blaster at all that is.




    Has anyone else noticed any Nerf blasters in other TV shows/movies?


    BTW, does anyone know if I can make the images appear smaller in the post without resizing the original?

    You can upload it to photobucket or the image host of these forums and set it at 800x600.

    Interestingly enough. Alot of Nerf Blasters are used in 'sci-fi' type short films. Check out this one by CorridorDigital.

    They use a modified Maverick in one of the episodes of Numb3rs - to simulate russian roulette.

    This a prity cool one.
    The black eyed peas use a large range of nerf guns in their video clip for 'rock that body'.
    Taboo uses a firefly.
    Fergie uses the front gun of a longshot.
    Will.i.am uses a long shot.

    I was just watching role models and there's a supermaxx 1500 laying on the African-American kid's couch.
