I had hoped to bring you more images and internals of the new Nerf Rebelle Guardian Crossbow. Sadly the owner does not wish to release or open the blaster up. No worries, because I got this info from him:
- The cross bow string is fake but it can move with your firing actions
- The range is as good as Strongarm - even better
- Some difference between them are:
- Without the stock, the Guardian Crossbow is a bit longer than Strongarm
- Slamfire mode, crossbow fires like Raider or Rampage - not like Strongarm. I mean firing time when you move the slide.
- The darts of Rebelle is very beautiful! six different colours and paint!
I got to say this sounds pretty awesome, If the firing mechanism is similar to the Raider/Rampage that utility is pretty awesome for battles and HvZ. Lets not forget that the blaster achieves better ranges than the Strongarm. The Stock is not removable - sad as it would have been an awesome accessory!
So if the mechanism is similar to the Raider/Rampage, putting those mod kits inside the Guardian would probably make it a decent replacement for front-loaded side arms.
So I ask you this - has it changed your mind to pick one up?
