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.

Dart Zone Powerbolt blaster revealed

Prime Time toys revealed to us that their latest blaster, the Powerbolt will be a Target exclusive, set to be released this fall for $19.99.

The Powerbolt is the latest addition to the growing Dart Zone® family of blasters. It is the first pump-action belt fed blaster in the line. That’s right–this rapid-fire blaster requires NO BATTERIES and its kid powered pump-action will still launch Super Darts across a room (or two!) or across the yard.

This blaster will be a Target exclusive for the last quarter of 2015, but is set for wider release in 2016. As you can see in the image below, it’ll come with two 18-round belts and enough of their super darts to fill them.

PowerboltImage1We’re looking forward to getting our hands on one to test, as we were very impressed with its gatling-gun-style cousin. Stay tuned in to Nerddrop.com for more information as we receive it, and follow our twitter account at twitter.com/nerddrop!

 

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!
