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!
