Looks like another blaster has dropped on to the Nerf scene, this time the Nerdist has got the scoop on this one. The Doominator is a Zombie Strike blaster slated to come out this fall for $39.99. According to the article, it’ll be available at most major retailers as well as HasbroToyShop.com.
This beast of a blaster looks like another bastard-child blaster, this time the result of some sordid relationship between the FlipFury and SlingFire. If you’ve taken a look at the article, they say that:
The action lever also provides a quick reset for the next dart, a la the excellently designed SlingFire rifle.
However, we don’t believe that this is the case (they don’t provide the marketing blurb in the article, so we’re just going on appearances and logic). If you’ve gotten your hands on the FlipFury, you’ll know that the secondary trigger simply activates the mechanism to rotate the cylinders around. We believe that the two-fingered lever here performs the same function. We think that the fore-grip is actually what primes the blaster and advances the individual cylinder to the next dart. We’ve emailed our contact at Nerf in hopes of more information on this blaster, and will update this article accordingly.
