Ryan’s World Blasters are Announced!

This was bound to happen. #RyansWorld has foam blasters coming out! These hit Australia already, and the US is getting them in June as a Target exclusive (another exclusive grab by Target! Dang!)

The Toy Book has more info on the American release and the products in general, and videos are available at the Headstart Toys YouTube page – https://youtube.com/c/HeadstartToys

A few things –

I wonder if all blasters in the line will have functional triggers.

Range claims are around 65′-90′ for blasters in the range.
The dual single/full auto trigger setup is pretty original.

Some of the blasters do use mags. I would bet proprietary.

How about that blaster that comes with its own CASE.
Really interested to see the pricing.

FOAM FEST LIVE 2! TOMORROW!

How exciting is this? Spending tomorrow AM (for me) talking to Justajolt at Foam Fest Live 2! Would love to attend this in person (pre-Covid) but the community makes do!

NERF COLLABS WITH ROBLOX

The NERF Roblox blasters represent some of the most iconic games on the Roblox platform, each with billions of lifetime plays, including ADOPT ME!, ARSENAL, JAILBREAK, MAD CITY, MURDER MYSTERY 2, and PHANTOM FORCES, and will hit U.S. shelves this Fall with additional markets to follow. Each of the NERF blasters will include a code that Roblox fans can redeem for a virtual blaster to equip on their avatar — and use in the game that inspired it!

The MONOPOLY: Roblox 2022 Edition board game lets fans collect and trade popular Roblox experiences while playing the Roblox-inspired version of the iconic board game. Each MONOPOLY game will include a code to redeem for an exclusive virtual item. The MONOPOLY: Roblox 2022 Edition board game is available now for pre-order on Hasbro Pulse for fans aged 16 and older in the U.S. and Canada and at Big Bad Toy Shop.

“We are thrilled to bring NERF Nation and the Roblox community together for the first time with an incredible line of blasters we know they will be clamoring to get their hands on,” said Adam Kleinman, Vice President, NERF Global Marketing. “Our design teams have done a phenomenal job capturing the creativity and essence of Roblox creators and their most immersive, innovative Roblox games in NERF blaster form and we can’t wait to deliver these new items to Roblox fans around the world!”

“Roblox values the incredible contributions of its community of creators, and our partnership with NERF is an ideal way to bring their inspiring creations on the platform to life for millions of Roblox and NERF/MONOPOLY fans to enjoy in the metaverse as well as in real life,” said Craig Donato, Chief Business Officer at Roblox.

Additionally, later this year, NERF will be embracing the power of the Roblox platform and launching its own NERF-branded experience on Roblox for its fans. Details on the launch will be revealed later this spring.

I do have a Tik Tok account, and I do ok. If you are reading this and aren’t following me on Tik Tok yet, be a pal and click that “+”, yeah?

So in the 10+ years since I started covering the brand, Nerf is finally offering a paid position on their social media. It’s not for very long, but who knows what someone will make of it? If anyone else gets it, I do hope it’s Sophie, aka Nerfers101. She’s one of the few active people in this community who is truly passionate about the brand and isn’t a slimeball.

Good luck to everyone, of course I will make a video, and this is one of the craziest opportunities I’ve seen in awhile. I may have additional thoughts once the selection is made, but we’ll see.

Nerf Hyper Rundown!

Hasbro is thrilled to introduce you to NERF HYPER – a revolutionary new performance segment designed for high-energy, competitive action.



NERF HYPER delivers on the insights that consumers are looking for two main components in a blaster – quick-and-easy reload and immense onboard capacity. This segment will combine both of these components – and additional fan-favorite features – into one epic new collection that allows players to battle, play, and blast unlike EVER BEFORE. Here are a few notable features:



· THREE NEW BLASTERS: The 14+ NERF HYPER line features the NERF HYPER RUSH-40, NERF HYPER SIEGE-50, and NERF HYPER MACH-100.

· EXTREME VELOCITY: Engineered for velocity, each blaster within the HYPER segment fires rounds at extreme speed – up to 110 feet per second.

· NEW ROUNDS, NEW CAPACITY: HYPER rounds are about 1/3 smaller than RIVAL rounds and feature an all-new material uniquely developed specifically for high performance. The size and material of the new HYPER round allows for increased capacity, improved velocity, and longer gameplay than the typical RIVAL blasters and rounds. In the volume where you could previously house 25 RIVAL rounds, you can now fit 100 HYPER rounds – allowing you to play three times as long before having to reload – that’s a 300% increase in capacity!

· FAST, EASY RELOAD: All new reload canisters allow players to load up to 100 rounds in mere seconds. 50-Round and 100-round reload canisters are available for purchase to attach to tactical rails for fast, easy reloads in just seconds.

· FAN FAVORITE FEATURES: Consumers can also expect to see a variety of fan-favorite features in the line including slam fire and large hoppers that allow for more time playing and less time reloading.

· #GETHYPER: In conjunction with the launch of the HYPER line, NERF is launching the #GETHYPER campaign to highlight the Brand’s heart-pounding, adrenaline-fueled vibe.
