Hasbro Takes On Hot Wheels With Foam Car-shooting NERF Nitro Blasters

I am sure we are all quite familiar what NERF has to offer. This Hasbro’s line of blasters shoots foam darts, isn’t it? Well, about that, it is not quite true anymore because NERF’s diversification has lead to it shooting, wait for it… foam cars. Yes. Yes. NERF’s new line of blasters that is slated to hit the shelves worldwide in summer 2017 doesn’t shoot foam darts or balls. Instead it will spit out foam cars and thereby pulling a Hot Wheels kind of toy line but without the fancy, roller coast-style tracks. Hard to imagine? Well, it is really not hard to imagine. Just think of it as a Hot Wheels launch-able car, less the track and has the launcher in the likeness of a NERF foam blaster. Get it?

Speaking of Tomica, if you have those adorable Star Wars die-cast cars, dubbed Star Cars, then you would probably want this father of all Star Cars, the Star Wars Star Cars Darth Vader Car Carrier.

If Darth Vader Had A Car, This Is What It Will Look Like

Lord Vader probably don’t need a mundane transport like the C5 Corvette, but if he ever had one, it will probably look like this Hot Wheels Darth Vader Car. absolutely no doubt about it. however, Death Star is probably lacking of highway for it anyway. if you have watched the original trilogy over and over again, you would have noticed despite of ginormous size, Death Star seems to have narrow passages only with the biggest open space suited for driving being the spaceport or hangers. just saying… anywho, the ride is actually a one-off thing that mimics one of the many Hot Wheels’ upcoming Star Wars line of vehicles and playsets.
