New Xploderz BlasterPro Magnum 250 TV commercial

Thanks to Jason over at Basic Nerf on this one. Honestly, i'm not sure where i'm sitting on this one... I might tip towards more miss than hit... let me know what you think!



Their website is as follows if you are interested in checking out their full product range:
 
Oh, and thought I would share this with you too...
 

 
Not sure how they got away with this, probably because Hasbro didn't care what they had to say O_o
 
I will say that in a boat with Vapor Blasters, they definitely have a thing or two to learn from Razor INC on design. Real trigger is all the rage - and for a reason. It works, it's good, and did I say it works?

  3. BlasterPro and Xploderz are two separate lines from the same company, aren't they? BlasterPro seems to be setting itself up as the high-end line with smaller (and presumably faster) ammo and pricier blasters, while Xploderz is geared towards the younger set with larger, "kid-sized" ammo and blaster parts.

    Anyway, I don't understand why they're marketing themselves as unique when Vapor's got their own line utilizing the same kind of ammunition.

    I doubt Nerf (or even Buzz Bee) have anything to worry about--most of us foam buyers still prefer recoverable ammo, and even if the gel blasters' claims of range and speed are true, I think that many foam blasters provide a more "gun-like" experience, which I think is part of the fun. You don't exactly pour a cup of shells into a pistol or rifle to reload. And it may be a "no mess" sort of fun outside, people probably wouldn't want these gel blasters fired indoors.

    And finally, the stores tell the tale: Where I'm at, only Xploderz have any sort of presence on the shelves, BlasterPros are being fire-saled, and Vapor is almost nonexistent--I think I saw a pistol once, and some ammo here and there. Like Max Force and its spitball ammo before it, these guys are already on their way out.
