Nerf Doomlands 2169 officially announced!

We’ve been seeing some scant information pop up here and there about this for a little bit now, but now it’s official! Nerf DoomLands a Sci-fi Steampunk themed series that (for now at least) is a Target exclusive (in the US) and is set to hit shelves August 1st, 2015.

I have some mixed feelings about these blasters. While I do like the looks of them somewhat, their performance is suspect. Since in the images I’ve seen, the Lawbringer has a grey trigger and that’s not something that instills any amount of hope that they’ll perform well in terms of distance anyway. But we’ll give them a go and see if they’re worth purchasing or not.

Check out the information we received on the blasters and the ammo pack set to hit shelves in about 5 weeks’ time.

NERF DOOMLANDS 2169 FALL 2015

With the debut of the NERF DOOMLANDS 2169 line, members of NERF NATION can become the heroes of the future. This all-new NERF blaster segment was designed to inspire active, imaginative play with a futuristic edge only the NERF brand can provide. The year is 2169, nearly a century after an asteroid impact wiped out civilization as we know it. The post-apocalyptic wasteland once known as earth is filled with bands of marauding thieves and all manners of creatures. Now, the time has come for a hero to emerge from the wild, savage land to deliver justice and freedom to the human race with the new NERF DOOMLANDS 2169 blasters by their side.

The debut DOOMLANDS 2169 lineup, featuring the LAWBRINGER blaster with a twelve dart rotating barrel and the pump-action VAGABOND blaster, is available exclusively at Target this fall and features all new sci-fi steam-punk designs, visible firing mechanisms, and NERF performance. In the epic battle for the future, NERF NATION will prevail.

New Nerf Rebelle Charmed Line

We’ve recently received information from our friends at Nerf about a new Rebelle line coming out this fall, called Rebelle Charmed. This line features charms on chains dangling on the blasters as well as gold accents, seemingly giving them a victorian look to them.

Inspired by current pop culture trends and based on insight from girls, the NERF REBELLE brand is designed to empower players with confidence, high performance action, and a stylish edge, all while inspiring girls to think and play differently, banding together, because we are NERF REBELLE.

Fans of Nerf Rebelle can follow NERF REBELLE on YouTube to keep up with the latest news on the brand or on Instagram with #RebellePower. We are Strong. We are Determined. We are NERF REBELLE.

Nerf Splitstrike officially announced!

Today we received official word that the Nerf Splitstrike will be coming out Fall of this year (August 1st is set as the precise date) as a Walmart exclusive for $19.99.

This is a little spendy in my mind, but one also has to keep in mind that this is basically two firestrikes that have two barrels with smart ARs. Not to mention it’s an exclusive. That’s bound to make the price a bit higher, even at Walmart.

Stick close to Nerddrop.com for more information on this and other blasters as we get it! Also follow us on Twitter at @nerddrop! Official pictures coming soon! 

 

Nerf Zombie Strike FlipFury Behind the Blaster

Nerf and zombies have become best friends since the Zombie Strike line came out, and the line has been sort of a proving ground for new and exciting ideas for blasters.  One of Nerf’s newest additions to Zombie Strike is the FlipFury, a single fire blaster akin to the Strongarm… actually it’s a Strongarm that got the Arnold Schwarzenegger treatment.  Two rotating cylinders holding 6 darts each mounted over and under with a trigger that switches them on the fly… Yeah it’s pretty cool.  Check out this Behind the Blaster video that showcases the FlipFury in all its wondrous glory.  Special thanks to our friends at Nerf for shooting this our way.

 

 

Up close with Rival ammo

Here we have an up close look at Nerf Rival ammo thanks to a picture from Vas at FoamFromAbove. While they look like dimpled ballistic balls, I’ve been told by Vas that they are a bit softer than ballistic balls are. There’s no word whether they’re the same material utilized in a slightly different manner or not. We’ll have to wait until we get them in-hand to figure out exactly what they are.

And here’s a picture of the blasters themselves. An interesting thing to note is that the Apollo appears to use the same or a similar magazine to the Zeus, though it’s in the handle.

Nerf Modulus – More detailed information

This information comes via the information at Hasbro’s Brand Toolkits page (/u/Chipayv on reddit posted the link).

Information about the Modulus has been out for a while now, but the information on the Toolkits page provides a bit more clarity than what’s been previously posted in various places. The accessory kits are definitely a long-awaited product, and it looks like they’ll easily work physically and visually with other blasters.

I’m very interested in the stock/blaster combo. It seems like something that was almost a no-brainer, and I’m surprised it wasn’t something that came out with the first lineup of accessories.

Two new Rebelle Blasters Discovered

This information comes via the information at Hasbro’s Brand Toolkits page (/u/Chipayv on reddit posted the link).

These two crossbows are definitely interesting additions to the Rebelle line. I really wish the arrow technology would start showing up in the regular Nerf blaster lineups (Zombiestrike or elite). The blasters that are being developed in the Rebelle lineup have awesome features that could be utilized so easily in those lines.

Two new Elite Blasters Discovered

This information comes via the information at Hasbro’s Brand Toolkits page (/u/Chipayv on reddit posted the link).

Two new Elite blasters: one is an evolution of the Jolt with two holes for ammo storage, and the other is a standalone Elite Missile launcher. I’m cautiously excited about the Thunderblast. I think it could be an awesome blaster, but considering that it’s the same launch mechanism as the Elite Demolisher, that makes it a bit suspect in terms of power and capability.

Nerf BioSqad Blasters discovered

This information comes via the information at Hasbro’s Brand Toolkits page (/u/Chipayv on reddit posted the link).

Nerf has two blasters coming out in the Zombiestrike lineup that up to today were not known about. These two blasters are called BIOSQUAD blasters, and feature an interesting mechanic that involves cans of “Zombie Repellent”, which we assume is what they’re calling silly string.

Personall, I’m not too hot on this idea. I’m not a huge fan of disposable ammo. My main issue with disposable ammo is once it’s gone, it’s gone. If the line doesn’t do well or reaches it’s end-of-life, you’re stuck with something that no longer is able to function like it’s supposed to.

NERF ZOMBIE STRIKE BIOSQUAD ZR-800 ABOLISHER Blaster
Looks like this image was mis-edited, the orange part in the middle is cut out, so we don’t really know what it looks like there exactly.

 

NERF ZOMBIE STRIKE BIOSQUAD ZR-800 ABOLISHER Blaster
(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $29.99/Available: Fall 2015)
