Spotted these at Toys R Us for $5.99, and had word passed onto me from the Facebook page. Essentially a hollowed out pool noodle with fins, you can use it to shoot water while in a pool (by pushing the rocket into the water) or throwing it around. There were some other items like a Soaker Shot, Soaker Bolt, Soaker Glasses, and even a bunker. Different colors denote different teams, so hopefully I will get to a pool soon to try these out! Definitely something new from Super Soaker.

I’ll put up some comparison photos against a dollar store type rocket I found, an Uberdart, and these rockets shortly. Remember, these rockets are HOLLOWED out.
And, looks like I’ll be out at NYC a little before the main release of the Nerf N-Strike Elite line! As they did in the past with the Nerf Stampede Release Party and Nerf Vortex Release Party, myself and a few other Nerf blogs are being invited out to the release party to test drive new blasters with other news sites. This’ll be in June, so make sure to watch here and on my twitter feed – @vasthestampede when the time comes! (Of course, I’ll make sure to post a reminder.) Knowing how the past events have gone the main attractions like the N-strike Elite Retaliator, the N-Strike Elite, Rampage, N-Strike Elite Hailfire. Will the other blasters like the N-Strike Barricade redux, Nitefinder, Eliminator, etc. show up? We’ll have to wait and see! On top of that, expect me to take a thorough look at the new darts as well. At least I have plenty of time to come up with some questions!
