Word is out! NERF GEAR UP SERIES

GET READY

From ToyFair2011 - Hasbro Showroom


Alright, Nerf' put some fine pics on their facebook page regarding the new Nerf "Gear Up" series of repaints. Let's take a quick look down memory lane to back in February when I got a close look at the blasters. The new series is just a repaint, nothing new or revolutionary has been done on the blasters, they're just a snazzy new orange and black tigerstripe paintscheme.

So there you go - a brand spanking new Raider, Recon, Barricade and Maverick for the completionist in all of you! Ready to be unleashed around August 1 at major retailers! This line isn't supposed to be a store-exclusive like the Sonic Series, so keep your eyes peeled!

OH HEY HOW DID THAT SHOT GET HERE.

NERF VORTEX: VIDEO NUMBER 3! THE FULL LINEUP!



Heads up! The Nerf Facebook page has released a third video, and this time it clearly the depicts the Vortex blasters in all their resplendent youtube glory.

The names are official - Proton, Vigilon, Praxis, and Nitron - nothing new there. The video gives a 360 of each blaster though, and I am particularly intrigued at the way the muzzles look to accomodate the new disc ammo. Below are some screen shots:

Aw Yeah, the Family Portrait!



The blaster with the internal clip - the Vigilon! Looks to me the size will be pretty close to a recon.





Self-explanatory! Man, look at the size of that magazine.




The blaster we saw in the first video - The Praxis! Oddly enough, no magazine is pictured with it. Pump-action, and judging from that first video pretty awesome range.






The Proton, the pistol entry of the line. As shown in another preview video, this blaster has a slide that pulls out, providing the spot where the disc loads and primes the blaster.






Huzzah! Now, to get to 09/10/11!

NERF Dart Tag - how to play!



A quick Nerf "how-to" video on playing Nerf Dart Tag. Make sure you've got your equipment, and you've got your friends! Sounds like the scoring might be different (no points per tag on opposing team members are mentioned) but maybe getting to the tournament proper will change that. In any event, game on!
