    So what can we say? Before we kick off - is THIS the Big Red Mega RPG blaster sighted in Beijing?


    The faux grip strap seems to be a running theme which adds a specific Fallout/apocalypse feel. NEW firing system seems to be carrying on the whole hammer-prime style, and a sexed up looking shotgun. The flechette rounds clearly pack 3 darts at a time, giving a special and unique-Triad style loadout with Zombie Strike themes darts.

    It is not clear if the stock whether removable or not (I'm sure the mods will work it out), but the stock cradles 3 rounds at a time. I think we need new tac vests to pack plenty of these!

    As suspected folks, the Zombie Strike "Deco" packs x30 unique ammo refill darts packs.

    1. Oh... My... God... Give it to me now...

      On a serious note, any release dates MLD?

    2. If they don't sell shells seperately then this is pretty much useless. Its sweet that we finally have a true nerf shotgun, but we will see how this goes over.

    3. If this shot 3 at once, it might be great for clearing corners indoors. I really can't get excited over this one. That's a lot of money for what is essentially a jumbo Triad. Nostalgia only blaster in my book.

      Would be great to have those shells load into a gatling turret though! You just crank, and the turret makes 3 trips around before it's empty...

    4. haha, how cool. I was hoping it would be tube fed pump gun- maybe next time!

      Wonder if it ejects the used shells?

    6. Is this the rumoured Winchester??? or is that another blaster entirely..

    7. If we look at the box art more carefully we see that it states "Fires 3 Darts at once" unlike the Triad which shot three darts separately.

      It will be very interesting to see if this hold three separate plunger tubes (like the rough cut has two) to propel the darts, or if it is a single tube split into three chambers.

      The cover art also shows break barrel style action to load the 'slag' (?) shots, but I would guess if they ejected like the BuzzBee ones we would see that on the cover art. I am guessing these either raise slightly when opened all the way, or are just loose fitting inside and fall out when turned over.

      Excited for the deco darts though! I wonder if they work as well as elite darts? If so I could see myself replacing all my darts with these :)

      1. Judging by the fact that the barrel only breaks down and there is a lot of shell leftover, it most likely going to be three PTs. I dont know how it primes though, it may be a Barrel Break like system or a Hammer prime.

    8. Wishing it was orange to match the hammershot :-/

    9. "Before we kick off - is THIS the Big Red Mega RPG blaster sighted in Beijing?" ...well, no. Why even ask that question? It isn't red, it isn't belt fed (which the sighting was rumored to be), it isn't MEGA.. Also, it doesn't look all that big.

    10. Going to Target's site, you can zoom in quite a bit more... from the graphic that shows it re-loading, I'm guessing the priming is the same basic mechanism as the Barrel Break, and the orange lever you see on top is the release to open it up.

      Unless the cartridge comes out the barrel after the darts, I'm guessing you'd have to take out the spent one before sliding in the new one.

    11. 1) Any distance confirmation yet? 2) Is it just me or does this sucker have a similarity to Boba Fett's blaster? I can't wait to try it out.

      1. these are 75ft as well, nerf would not sell new blasters with less and expect sales.

      2. Haha a nerf shotgun that shoots 75ft its never been heard of but that's kinda why I want it

    12. i think the "hammer" on the back is the barrel release catch on the box you can see the shell being put in the back so thats my guess. so no duel weilding im afraid.

    13. Images for both are down for me now....

    14. Since it chambers a larger shell, how difficult would it be to single it for the new Mega rounds? Make a neat "grenade launcher" attachment to mount under other blasters.

    15. Out of the two ZombieStrike blaster, I think I'm more likely to get a couple of the Hammershots over this.

      The color just isn't for me, and I'm more of a revolver person anyway. :)

    16. You know... If done correctly, this is an epic shot gun/grenade attachment with awesome reloading capabilities; however, I still would have to stick with my Rayvenkey because that blaster is just a monster in hvz.

    17. I ordered the HammerShot and the SledgeFire... the HammerShot is a no-brainer, but I almost passed on the SledgeFire... I haven't even seen a review vid of one yet...

    18. This is Something I want if I can`t get the mega centurion or even if I can get it with the mega because I
      want these guns so friggin bad hopefully I can but I would be actually scared to see the mega centurion in someone like my little cousins hands (He`s 10 but I don`t know)
