HVZ: Airzone Triple Shot Repaint!

Looks like yet another HVZ gun.  This time its a knock off Triple shot.  I'm really liking these "zombie" paint jobs.  Listed over on Toys R Us for $20. I wonder why this one is cheaper?  By the way, with this blaster to be released, has anyone noticed you can make an HVZ Octo-shot?  I'll defiantly pick one of these up later.

Why is This Still Here?...

I guess Hasbro is just lazy because this is still on the Nerf Website:


Johnson Arms is Awesome

Have you heard of Johnson Arms? Most of you probably have but if you haven't check him out!  His PJ's are absolutely AWESOME!!


His Blog

His other Blog

His Youtube

Just Simply amazing...

Another HVZ blaster?

Saw this on Nerf Mods and Reviews:
Looks interesting!  I do hope it is a Triple Shot repaint, cuz' that would be awesome!

Update: School is Hard

Summer ends.  School starts.  Mods slow down.  I wish I had more time to Nerf but school comes first (unfortunately).  Some of my slowed projects are an Octo-shot, a unique way to single a Longshot, Longshot/ Mav Integration, etc....

Once I get into the groove of things, I'll start plugging out more mods but for now, I gotta get back to my homework. (Sigh...)

Who else shares my pain?

Pretty cool, but personally, I'm gonna wait for the Orange Mod Works Longshot kit!

Well, What Were You Expecting?

It turns out that the "big announcement" was just another repaint of the Barricade.  In my opinion, this was kinda disappointing.  I was hoping that it would be that weird Swarmfire 10 thing:

So Nerf community, what were you expecting?

The Mystery Unveiled; Nerf Barricade, Bumblebee Style!

So what was the big secret? Nerf has released yet another "Transformers" Barricade, this time with everyone's favorite character, Bumblebee!

If you can remember, Hasbro also released an "Optimus Prime" themed Barricade a while back:

I wonder if we will see more of these "Transformers" themed Barricades in the future...

Possibly an "Iron Hide" Barricade?

Exclusive Nerf Blaster Announcement: Thursday

Nerf has yet another big announcement to make.  Check it out:

Get those eyelids opened wide, Nation! We'll be posting details on a new, exclusive Nerf blaster tomorrow around 3pm EST right here on the Facebook Wall. Is it Thursday yet?
From Nerf Facebook page.

                    ?                                                   ?

Which Vortex Gun are You Getting?

So the Vortex line has hit the stores and there has already been some cool mods done to these frisbee throwing monsters.  The question is; which one are you getting?

SG Nerf: Nerf N-Strike 18-dart Drum Magazine!

Finally Hasbro is getting the idea!  The Alfa Trooper's 18 round drum mag is being sold by itself.  So for all of you Nerfers who were going to buy the Alfa Trooper just for the clip, think again!  Hopefully we'll see a Raider Drum mag set in the future too! :)  Head over to SG Nerf for more details.
