    Okay, so, I'm tossing (ahahaha NO) up between either a Clear Vulcan or a Clear Recon. I'm planning to do a complete overhaul of one of these blasters and L.E.D Lighting, as I'm a beast in electronics.

    Would anyone be so kind to tell me the pro's and con's and their opinions?

    NOBODY COMMENT AND SAY "WE CAN'T MAKE THE CHOICE FOR YOU" BOOHOO, Just tell me, if your gonna comment like that don't comment at all.

    And just be careful I know where you ALL live. Loljks.

    Thanks!

    PS; If you guys know or have seen a Clear Vulcan somewhere recently(a week) would you mind telling me, as I want one ASAP.

    A Big W store here in Adeleaide had clear vulcans, well had them until i walked in the door, i stripped them of all the stock they had... So try calling (on a phone) some Big W stores and see if they have any in stock.

    Q. Oh where do you find the stores numbers?

    A. Try the yellow pages (Online)

    DUH!

    I don't wanna miss out on the Clear Recons either, so I will keep calling around till the 18th so if I don't get my hands on a Vulcan, I will at least have a clear recon.

    The Vulcan should be easier to add the LED's to, because it has a battery in it already, negating the need to add one, except if you want to increase the voltage. The only thing needed to add the LED's to a Vulcan is the LED's, wire and some resistors to bring the voltage down to an acceptable level so not to fry the LED's. If it would take enough time to get a clear vulcan, while having the money for both blasters, by all means buy a recon first so to not have something you want to implment or try. I hope this helps but take my comments with a grain of salt as I haven't even had my first blaster yet and I may be wrong about certain parts of a NERF blaster's anatomy.

    You're welcome, i just did not know if you had any previous experiance with eletronics. Back OT, your choice also depends on your like dislike of various parts of the blaster, and what you intend to use it for, with a recon being for more accurate shots and the vulcan for pure ROF. It is your pick though and the availibility is important, the blaster is not much use if you do not have it.

    Vulcan, with a 12v SLA battery (don't have to recharge often at all), it's ridiculously fun, you'll probably want a few more belts though... Besdies, there's more room in the Vulcan for doing cool LED patterns and shapes etc etc.
    EDIT: as the others have said, call your nearest Big W(s) to check stock levels
