[REVIEW] Nerf Rival KNOCKOUT XX-100 (unreleased in the U.S. as of 2019/09/06

NERF RIVAL KNOCKOUT XX-100 Assortment

(HASBRO/Ages 14 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $9.99/Available: October 1, 2019)

Available at most major toy retailers nationwide.

Basics:

– 2 x High-Impact Rounds included
– 1 x Nerf Rival Knockout
– Capacity: 1 round (technically, watch the video!)
– Jolt-style downward pull
– Fires one shot at a time
– Breech-loaded
– Tactical Rail
– FPS readings – approx. 90s
– Ranges: 40-50′ flat, can hit 80-90 angled

Mechanics:

– Flick release to spring barrel forward, revealing breech.
– Insert 1 round, slide barrel back into place.
– Pull priming handle down and push back into original position
– Fire

Pros:
+ Compact
+ Chrony shows it hits about 90 FPS
+ Undocumented (in instruction manual) ability to shotgun 2 rounds
+ Nice aesthetics/mechanics, the pop-release breech and priming mech work nicely for me

Cons:
– Other blasters available at similar price for higher ammo capacity
– Single shot, even against other pistols this is at a disadvantage head to head
– The jolt-style priming mech gets in the way of the grip to some degree, at least for my hands
– Shotgun loading is a happy side effect, not an explicit feature

Final Verdict:

Consider purchasing! It’s pretty good at the price and pretty simple to use. This blaster will be a good stocking stuffer/gift/intro blaster to the Rival line. The compact feel of the blaster is a trade-off with the ammo capacity, but may benefit some play styles and loadouts. Since it is so low profile finding a holster or pocket for it is highly probable.

[Review] Buzz Bee Agitator Blaster

Buzz Bee Air Warriors Agitator Reviewed

$19.99, available at Target now! The Buzz Bee Air Warriors Agitator allows you to hit your target every time! With the capability to blast targets from up to 100 feet away, this three foot blaster keeps the fun going with a flip clip so you don’t run out mid-battle. When one is empty, simply flip it around for another 10 count clip. Never lose sight of your target with the detachable barrel, which also doubles as a scope! [MSRP: $19.99; Ages 6+] $20, comes with a flip clip, and detachable barrel attaches to the top as a scope/sight.

See how my testing went, looking at mobility, mechanics, firing, and loading. Overall a pretty solid blaster at a great price. Comes with 20 XL Distance darts, but I recommend the PrecisePro instead.

Thanks to Buzz Bee Toys for the sample, and Wicked Ball Chicago for letting me use your space! Check them out for parties, including archery tag, Nerf Wars, Laser Tag, and Bubble Soccer. Wicked Ball Chicago is in Yorktown Mall, in Lombard, IL.

New Nerf Apparel and Footwear from Super Heroic

HASBRO AND SUPER HEROIC TEAM UP TO PROMOTE ACTIVE PLAY

WITH NEW NERF APPAREL AND FOOTWEAR LINE

New Licensing Agreement Brings NERF-Branded Gender-Neutral Kids Clothing and Shoes to the US in July

PAWTUCKET, R.I.– July 31,2019 – Super Heroic, Inc. a tactical play company, and HASBRO, Inc. (NASDAQ:HAS), a global play and entertainment company, announced today a licensing agreement to bring NERF-branded kids’ apparel and footwear to market this August . The line will be available at Foot Locker and Kids Foot Locker, select Foot Locker and Kids Foot Locker stores, and online at www.superheroic.com, www.footlocker.com, and www.kidsfootlocker.com.

Designed for active play, the NERF x Super Heroic collection consists of an update to its lead footwear. The TMBLR v2 will launch with two new colors, and the collection will also introduce a brand-new silhouette titled the JMPR v2 in two colors featuring a new alternative closure with elastic laces and a toggle system. These exciting footwear styles are rounded out by an apparel collection featuring gender-neutral tops, joggers, and t-shirts. The products will feature collaborative branding, plus individual pockets and compartments designed to hold NERF products.

“Our collaboration with Super Heroic is driven by our common mission to promote active play,” said Casey Collins, GM & SVP Entertainment and Licensing, Hasbro. “Together we want to encourage kids to play hard, explore and get dirty.

Thanks to Nerf for the press release and images!

Nerf Dart Rover! In [Review]

Price: $29.99
Available: Now apparently!
Does it accommodate Mega darts? POORLY
Sample Provided? NOPE. I bought this!

Reviewed the Nerf Dart Rover, a new accessory from Jazwares under the Nerf license.

Overall, not a terrible price for the product, but only good on smaller scale occasions. I wouldn’t recommend for meetups or arena owners to use this for dart sweeps and cleanup. I also don’t see this doing very well outside in parks so I didn’t record any data from out there.

Ultimately, it is built for kids (not surprising anyone) and will work on small cleanups. Don’t expect this to revolutionize your dart sweeps for larger games, but if you want to try it to at least pick up ammo for yourself, I suppose that’s an option? I would not suggest using it outside either, considering extra debris that can get caught up in the mechanism.

It was an easy assembly and didn’t require any tools, which is a huge plus for parents and kids. The rubber tires ensure you can drive over the darts and do your best to pick them up. The design of the dart sweeping “teeth” may poke holes in your ammo, especially when it comes to mega darts. For Rival rounds it seemed to really work the best, but as I mention in the video ammo sometimes jumps from the outlet and away from the collector bag.

It’ll be helpful to someone, I would recommend this as a gift in the future or at least wait until sales happen to buy for yourself.

Dart Zone Pro – The Preorder

Dart Zone did it. For weeks they teased the “Dart Zone Pro” line, promising 150′ and incredible accuracy. That was great, but the remaining question was, “how much will it cost?”

$180.00. Today, the preorders went live midnight from the looks of it and you can own this yourself. Some of the initial responses I see online go from “I’m buying it” (and I’ve seen people ordering them) to “whoa…. that’s a little steep.”

A lot of people were hoping that the budget-friendly pricing usually attached to Dart Zone products would apply here, and that collector’s edition pricing surprised a few folks for sure.

I personally don’t have any experience with kits/short darts/etc like this, so is it worth $180? I can’t really tell you, but the research and information is out there. I’d like to try this blaster for myself but wow, that price tag is pretty steep for me too. In a world where XShot and Nerf slug it out for cheaper blasters, Dart Zone seems to have gone for high-powered product at premium pricing, and performance you don’t get out of premium-priced Nerf products right now.

Are the demo videos enough to make you want to get a Dart Zone Pro Collector’s Edition blaster? Will you give it a second look if they offer a less pricey kit later on? If these don’t sell, will we see any additional DZ Pro kits? Stay tuned.
