10 Places to buy Blasters online

Finding Nerf, BoomCo, Zing, Zuru, BuzzBee, and other blasters isn’t too difficult, but there are more than just the obvious big box stores to buy them from online. Some stores have exclusive series or individual blasters, so places like Amazon or eBay may have the same blaster for a significantly higher price (Exclusives are noted where possible).

  • Amazon.com – One of the best places to find all of the brands listed above in one spot. They don’t have sales on blasters as often as some of the other places on this list, but if you have Amazon Prime, you can’t beat free shipping. (Nerf, BoomCo, Zing, Zuru, BuzzBee, Prime Time Toys (Dart Zone))
  • Walmart.com – A good place to find Nerf, Boomco, and BuzzBee blasters. They don’t have the largest selection of each brand, but they have a good selection of a large number of brands at prices that are often slightly below MSRP because they are such a large retailer.
  • Target.com – Target often has exclusive rights to blasters for a period of time (usually the first year a series is out). Current exclusives are: Nerf Doomlands (expected to end some time in the middle of 2016), BoomCo Colossal Blitz, BoomCo White & Blue Breakflip, BoomCo White & Blue Flipbow, and Prime Time Toys’ Dart Zone Powerbolt. (Nerf, BoomCo, Zing, Zuru, BuzzBee, Prime Time Toys)
  • K-Mart.com – K-Mart offers a wide selection of blasters across many brands. Like Target or Walmart, they often have sales and offer prices at or below MSRP.  (Nerf, Zing, Zuru, BuzzBee)
  • EntertainmentEarth.com – They only carry Nerf and BoomCo blasters currently. Prices can be lower or up to 25% higher than MSRP, so you should definitely compare each blaster’s price to the same blaster on other stores listed here. (Nerf, BoomCo)
  • HasbroToyShop.com – A good place to find Nerf Blasters at or below MSRP, since it’s Hasbro’s official online store.
  • Shop.Mattel.com – A good place to find BoomCo Blasters at or below MSRP, since it’s Mattel’s official online store.
  • eBay – A good place to find blasters, accessories, off-brand darts, and more. You can find new and used blasters, and is the best place to find blasters that are no longer available on store shelves.
  • Nerf Exchange SubReddit – A great place to find used blasters of all sorts, and you have the benefit of being able to post that you want to buy a certain blaster, blaster part, or accessory. The major down side is that you have to arrange payment yourself and you take a risk in buying from someone you may not know.
  • Taobao – Taobao is a Chinese website that offers many different ‘knockoff’ and name brand blasters, as well as accessories and ammo. If you’re purchasing from the US or another western country, you’ll probably need to go through a purchasing agent (such as Bhiner.com or yoybuy.com) in order to buy something. They’ll charge a percentage of the sale price to buy it and send it on to you. It will take a bit longer than many of the other sites in this list, but you can often find things here that can’t be found elsewhere. Be sure to read up on one of the agent websites to better understand how the transaction works. It’s not as straightforward as the other sites listed here.  (Nerf, BoomCo, Zing, Zuru, BuzzBee, Prime Time Toys (Dart Zone))

 

Honorable Mention

  • ShopGoodwill.com – Shop Goodwill is the online marketplace that Goodwill hosts, and has many different items available for purchase. They don’t have the largest selection of blasters, and often times they are rather generically listed, but they do offer discounted lots of old and new blasters. If you’re looking for a deal on an older blaster, it may be worth checking this site periodically.

battlescout

Last Nerf reveal before NY Toy Fair 2016 – Modulus Battlescout

Here we have the final reveal before the New York 2016 Toy Fair; the Nerf Modulus Battlescout ICS-10! The Battlescout is a spring-powered blaster (it may have slam-fire, we’re not sure yet) that uses a new style of integrated clip similar to the Magstrike (and BoomCo blasters), but only has one row of darts. I’m hoping that the clip will be removable and there will be extra available in the future, but I’m waiting on some more information from Hasbro about that.

The blaster has a $70 price tag, and for the blaster alone, that would be way too expensive. Most of the cost is due to the brand-new HD camera tactical rail accessory that’s included. There’s no word yet as to the exact specifications on the camera, other than it’ll need 4 – AAA batteries and record in 720p. We’re hoping that it’ll have a small screen, record in 60 frames per second, and use a decently sizable micro-sd card for storage.

This blaster seems to be the last blaster before toy fair, but we believe that there will be at least a few more blasters revealed at toy fair that’ll be at a price point below $40. We’ll be sure to release an update if we get more information not available in the description below.

brainsaw

Two more new Nerf blasters revealed ahead of NY Toy Fair 2016!

Another week, another set of blasters revealed! This week, we have two blasters from lines that weren’t represented in last week’s set. Popular Mechanics was the site chosen this week to reveal the Doomlands Double Dealer and Zombie Strike Brainsaw to the world.

Let me assure you, though some of the blasters we’ve had revealed to us are renders, they are quite real. This is official information from Nerf’s PR team, and they haven’t ever released information that was fabricated. Those of us who were lucky enough to be invited to Hasbro’s Rhode Island headquarters were also lucky enough to be shown two blasters that we weren’t allowed to reveal until Hasbro released official information on them. The Tri-Strike was one, and the Brainsaw was the other that we were able to check out up close.

The Brainsaw is pretty cool, and is a mash-up of a Crosscut and a Roughcut. It’s a pretty straightforward blaster, with a pull-handle on the side (just behind the carry handle on top) that rotates the blade at the front. Note that this isn’t an actual chain saw, and the teeth on the top and bottom of the blaster are just for show. They told us they tried to make a blaster with a foam chainsaw on it, but it didn’t quite work out.

We don’t have the official descriptions quite yet, but we do know that the Brainsaw will be $30 and the Double-Dealer will be $40. We’re thinking that the Double-Dealer will be a target exclusive along with the other Doomlands products, but we’ll have to wait for the official description to be sure.

Check back here later today, we’ll add the descriptions as soon as they’re sent to us!

UPDATE: The descriptions are now below the pictures, and it looks like the Double-Dealer will be coming to multiple retailers!
