Looks like we have a brand new Nerf brand kicking things off with their own version of the Nerf Rebelle Wildshot pistol - called Hammershot Orange Cattle pistol. A mouthful yes - but what eye candy folks! I believe this is their response to a % of boys not liking the paintjobs from the Rebelle line.
Also, it looks like Nerf are following the market of HvZ and catering a range for these gamers. Zing Toys recently launched their own Z-Zombie Bow, and it seems to have some popularity.
It also appears to be Sub Elite range for boys yes. Girls get the Rebelle line, this is the answer for boys.
I believe that recent light of Zing Toys breaking into the HvZ market with the Z-Curve Zombie bow, Hasbro have to meet this market with their own brand. HvZ might be too close to school shootings etc, but bottom line > conscience/bad press. Also lets remember some males liked the colour scheme of Rebelle, most didn't. So they get to remould the blasters and hit a new market. 2 birds 1 stone.
So what do we know so far? Well sources report that it has an extremely high rate of fire. There are accessories that go along with it that are just as awesome looking (finally!). Stay tuned for more images :)
We get a good look at the internal and outside aesthetics:
According to sources, there are some other hot rumour blasters to be shortly released along with this line. Happy days! What we saying on the internals folks? Let me know! A LOT of mod potential here no doubt about that.
