By now, we should be accustomed to NERF’s relentless pursuit to outdo itself. That said, it is no surprise that a 100-foam ball blaster and foam car-shooting blaster aren’t enough, cos’ the Hasbro brand is churning out more delightful blasters which the company will showcase at the upcoming New York Toy Fair, happening from February 18-21. One of the three notable blasters that will be unveiled is a jaw-dropping, monstrous (and somewhat anime-ish) blaster called The Judge. We are not sure if it is the judge, but with the fire power it has, it sure is an executioner.
With a capacity of 30 foam darts (10 sets of three darts), this beast is rigged to send 3 foam projectiles downrange at a time and that, my friends, gives a whole new NERF meaning of packing a punch. What gets us most isn’t the fire power; it is the overall design. Man, just look at that thing. It is enormous and the oversized barrel there just had us at hello. It is the kind of weapon design that you will likely find in anime and that is a win in our book. Confirmed.
For lovers of point and fletching, or in this case, foam and plastic fletching, there’s the new Zombie Strike Dreadbolt crossbow (pictured above) that shoots bowstring-propelled foam head arrows, and finally, NERF fans who love all-thing sci-fi is definitely going dig the Alien Menace Voidcaster (pictured below), which is essentially a standard foam dart-shooting NERF gun that’s capable of unleashing four darts before needing to reload. Ok, four is not a lot. So, the Alien Menace Voidcaster is more of a sidearm to your main arsenal because, to be honest, it is not going to save your ass in an all-out foam dart battle. Actually, the same goes to the zombie-poking crossbow thingy.
The Judge is expected to retail for $60 while the Dreadbolt and Voidcaster has a asking price of $50 and $20, respectively, when they become available this Fall.
