    Crossbow needs to be mean judging by the look of the kid on the box.

    Nice score - there's one on ebay for $150 in the USA, and it's not NIB.

    I too am basking in it's awesomeness!!

    That's incredible. For something over 15 years old, that's a bargain. Especially when it's a Crossbow. No offence meant by this, but what's the point of keeping this in NIB if you're not going to sell it?

    And I thought this was a letterbox forum?

    Why would you post that on a letterbox site?

    This is for letterboxes.. not 'Nerf Guns'

    Im making a point.

    besides what is this 'Nerf Crossbow' anyway? can it be modified to have letters put it it? or shootthem out at people you dont like? because if it does, im getting one!!

    PS: I like the looks of those TONKA toy trucks in the corner! they can make a mean letter box!!

    Can't put letters in the crossbow, but if you wrap them around the arrows I'm sure you could use it to send them.

    What do you think airmail meant back in the middle ages anyway?

    One messenger would shoot the message from his crossbow. The other would catch in his chest.

    Just going by the picture, the box looks a bit worn down?

    I've had two opportunities to buy rare Nerf blasters in Toys R Us here in Sydney. Do they forget in their storage that they have these guns?

    Hooray time to tell you why. THIS CROSSBOW was the predecessor of the +BOW. The +BOW was created to mimic the CROSSBOW as they had a LARGE plunger size it was ridiculously big. Must of been sitting in the back of stock for like 15years. Lol.

    If he knew Nerf, he'd have bought it himself and sold it on ebay.

    Chaos showed it to me first on chatbox. I believed him then he went and said something funny and ruined the joke :P.

    I also found it funny how he took photos of his titan coupler with the box as a background and sent them to me for future reference

    Edit: Brad you're a little packet of rage aren't you? If you aren't laughing at mail boxes, you're raging at us noobs.

    Explain to me why this scenario isn't plausible. I just purchased a Lego set from a small toy store in a rural town that was BNIB, and that particular set was discontinued approximately 22 years ago. I paid $40 for it in a clearance bin, and it will sell for over $500 on certain sites. That definitely "trumps" a 15-year-old Nerf Blaster.

    The plausability was gone as soon as anyone looked at the date.

    I think you'll find that the likelihood of this event happening was negated once the date of the post was observed.

    The plausibility of purchasing a vintage blaster from a store remains the same, regardless of whether it was April 1st or not. I've had multiple experiences where I've purchased vintage Lego sets and Graphic Novel's from shops at a fraction of the price of their total value.

    Is the date I see, which kinda makes too early for joke time :p

    That aside this is a good joke, however having the whole forum changed to a letterbox one kinda ruined it. Finding out now, 3 days later, that it isn't real makes me go 'meh'.

    It was definitely a well-planned practical joke. Admittedly, I was too interested in the fact that it was such an awesome buy, to even remotely consider it had anything to do with April Fool's!
