Nerf Accessories by Jazwares! Nerf Blaster Rack, Nerf LIcensed Bunker sets and MORE

Hey Nerf Nation! I went through the Jazwares showroom the other day to have a look at the latest Nerf accessories and gear coming from their company (as they have the license to make Nerf gear now) and here’s a little rundown of some of the key items I saw. I was not allowed to take photos, but thankfully was allowed to post about this with the pricing. There are some assorted dart pouches, bags, hip holsters, straps, BUT:
The prices are subject to change –
Ankle Blaster Holster – $7.99
Looks like it’s made to accommodate Jolts.
Portable Practice Target – Mesh bag with holes for target practice – $12.99
New goggles (reportedly with swappable lenses, between orange and blue – $6.99
Ultimate Battle Vest – $29.99 (reminiscent of a chest rig)
Ultimate Battle Waist pack – $14.99 (basically a battle belt)
Ultimate Battle Pack (both Vest and Pack together) – $34.99
Hovering Target (like those gift sets with the ping pong balls that float up) – $24.99
Starter Strike Set – $9.99 – maybe a drop leg holster and dart pouch in one pack
Elite Endurance Set – $19.99 – The Starter Strike Set sold with a battle strap
Stealth Striker Set – $19.99 – The battle harness, drop leg, and…. Something else. Not sure what it looks like.
Mobile Gear pack – $19.99 – Battle Harness sold with the Starter Strike items.
Supreme Strategy Pack – $29.99 – Vest and pouches
Total Tactical Pack – $34.99 – Vest, Cinch bag, pouches
Kronos dedicated Holster for Rival – $9.99
FALL 2018 –  BUILD A BUNKER CUBES.
$24.99
Yes, Nerf is making their own inflatable cubes. You can stack and attach with Velcro, and a starter kit will contain 3 cubes. The cubes are maybe 3’ high, if I recall correctly (don’t quote me on that) and are pretty well built. I think it’s a heavier vinyl they are made of, and there’s a notch in the top to act as a barrel rest.
STARTER, Deluxe, Alpha, and The Ultimate Experience Pack Bunker Sets
Starter – $49.99
Deluxe – $69.99
Alpha – $99.99
UEP – $149.99
Jazwares is fashioning 4’ tall bunker supports that will have some Nerf branded camo netting draped between them. The supports will be inflatable but it looks like the bunkers will make a cover 4’ High and 7.5’ Wide. Complete with notches in the top for blasters to rest and holes to peek at the competition through.
BLASTER RACK  (YES.) – $49.99
Looks like Nerf was paying attention during all those #Stockpile Saturdays, they’re finally making a blaster rack. Complete with side hooks, a main storage bay to rack blasters, shelving and a drawer, the set looked pretty cool. This was considered an “introductory” set, so plans for more could be in the works. The height of the initial set I saw was maybe 2-3 feet (tall enough to hold an AlphaHawk) and wide enough in the main spot to hold maybe 6 Retaliators. REALLY cool look, plastic but with a metal rack aesthetic.
Again, no pics were allowed! This is the best I can do, and thanks to Jazwares for letting me publish it! See you on the other side, Nerf Nation.

Nerf Rebelle – Rename update!

Quick news from the Nerf sources:

The Nerf Alpha Girl Mission Kit I reported on back in February has been renamed:

NERF REBELLE SWEET REVENGE Kit
(HASBRO/Ages 8 & up/Approx. Retail Price $19.99/Available: Fall 13)

The NERF REBELLE SWEET REVENGE Kit is a girl’s best friend and includes the accessories she needs to take on any NERF REBELLE mission in style. The star of the NERF REBELLE SWEET REVENGE Kit is the bold five dart revolving blaster, which features a cool purple deco and bright magenta accents. Pull back on the lever to ready the blaster and press the trigger to send darts soaring through the air up to 75 feet. Add style savvy during non-stop, action-packed adventures with the included pair of NERF REBELLE VISION GEAR eyewear. Taking a break from the excitement? Players can stow their blaster and extra darts in the included hip holster, and take the NERF REBELLE action with them wherever they go. Includes blaster, five collectible darts, and belt clip holster. Available at most major retailers nationwide and on HasbroToyShop.com.

And in case anyone doesn’t remember how this thing shoots:

Nerf/Dart Tag/Blaster fight Gear/Accessories: Grabit Pack (Ultra!)

Alright, let’s get to it.  Chances are you’ve been to thinkgeek and saw this picture.

Well, I did.  I got one (two!) and for the better part of my recent Nerfing history, I’ve used it.  Holding a sidearm, or some extra ammo.  Why?  Because sometimes I didn’t have cargo pockets, and sometimes I want to look like That Guy Who Is Overdoing It.

More after the cut:

 I digress.  The Grabit Pack has served me well all over the place, not just on the field.  I’ve used it at conventions to hold my camera(s), tablet, money, swag, business cards, woodland creature (kidding!), multitool,  all kinds of things in all kinds of situations.  I found it very useful and looked pretty cool an unassuming to boot.

Nowadays, Grabit Pack has expanded and come forward with a couple of new offerings.  First is the Grabit Pack Ultra.  For $39.95 USD (right or left, I believe a set is $44.95 but that might be just the regular type of Grabit) + S&H, it’s all yours!  Protip: when flying, I tend to put my wallet/ID/spare change/keys all in the Grabit, then I don’t have to worry about rifling through my pockets at security, all I do is put the Grabit on the security belt and go.

Anyway, the breakdown on the improved Ultra is this:

-10000 ballistic nylon.  Ballistic grade, and feels far stronger/sturdier than the original Grabit.
– An extra zipper on the large pocket.
– A clasp to bolster the velcro closure on the small pocket.

Ultra on the left, original on the right.  WHO WILL WIN????

The buckles are more robust as well.  The only issue I really ran into is that wearing a Grabit Pack with shorts means whatever leg I wore the Grabit Pack on made the leg of the shorts ride up a bit, but that’s a very small thing.  I can run, jump, slide, and roll very comfortably with a Grabit Pack, and it gives me just that extra amount of space to carry stuff.  So, you wear a Grabit Pack, wear proper pants.

They also have a version sized for an iPad: http://www.tabletpack.net/.  Personally, I use a Galaxy Tab but it has an Otterbox on it, making it a little heftier.  It fits in this pack just as easily, and if you don’t use it for a tablet, it functions just as well as a dump pouch.  But a dump pouch with a very soft and plush inner lining (to keep your tablet protected!)

Tablet Pack w/my Galaxy Tab

 Do I like it?  Heck yes!  Is it worth it?  For what you find yourself using it for, I think so.  It definitely makes doing some things (like getting through airport security) a lot easier, and doing work at conventions and shows a lot easier by giving me the extra easily reachable pockets.  If you can swing’em definitely get’em.  They’re durable, almost no reduction in mobility, and from what I can tell their customer service is top notch.  Check’em out, if you haven’t already!

Anyway, here are some pics to show what I tried fitting in the Grabit.  (All pics are the normal sized Grabit Pack Ultra, unless otherwise specified to be the iPad tabletpack)

Nerf Barricade Rev-10: YES!

Nerf Sharp Shot: YES!

Quickfire 12 from Primetime Toys:  YES! (it has the extra clip, too)

Zing Toys’s Pop Rocketz: YES!

Like I said, YES!

All these did indeed fit

Lightining Blitz…. not quite!

18 round magazine: YES! (just couldn’t close it)

YES!

Not so much the smaller pocket…

18 round drum: YES!

Like it was made to carry Nerf Vortex mags (that’s a 10 in the small pocket)

Vapor Atlas: YES!

Nerf Vortex Proton: YES!

Nerf Crossfire?

YES!

Wishful thinking!
