Props to RandomShadow09 for this find, well what more can I say. Mila approves. Go crazy. I did.
The Zombie Strike Sledge Fire has been bit of a hit and miss with Nerf fans. Much of the feedback I've got from conversations with fans has either been love it, or hate it. Why I've asked every time and the answer has been pretty much the same "it's not a HvZ/battle friendly blaster".
That's fair enough. I have said myself that there seems to be a missing cherry on this cake that is Zombie Strike. Are we yet to see the Winchester blaster that has been rumoured? Maybe that is the flagship blaster that fans are waiting for. The Zombie Strike range so far has been a mixed bag. I personally don't see why we need so many new single shot blasters. Of course, when you take a closer look at the blasters, we see something special going on in the case of the Ricochet, and the Ripshot. Even the Fusefire has something going on underneath that shell of a blaster.
Here's to hoping that we get a faux bandage on the handle. I don't think that is too much to ask for, but we have been somewhat let down in the continuity of the aesthetics on the range. If we use some logic to the pattern of blasters, it would not be too far to assume that a Stryfe and Retaliator will make the cut too. They are accessible in the real world (the Stryfe might be more suited to the SMG drug cartels pack their henchmen with :P ), but the Retaliator itself could be a bolt-sled rifle.
I would love to invite Tactical Tag, SBNC or any other badass PSP artist to knock up a killer ZS Rough Cut job.
EDIT: Thanks to SBNC for delivering!
