Kmart Puts Up New N-Strike Elite Version of the Zombie Strike Sidestrike

spin_prod_1092481712

Another day, another recolor am I right?

Kmart’s site has put up a listing of an Elite Version Sidestrike. In case you needed a reminder, the Sidestrike first originated as a Zombie Strike blaster. This Kmart exclusive, 2 Pack version retails for $24.99 on the side, comes with 12 Elite Darts, and lacks the holster that normally comes with the Zombie Strike version of the blaster.

I like how one one blaster is the old Elite color scheme, and the other is the new Elite color scheme though. Probably worth passing on it, unless your a newer player who wants to pick up a simpler blaster for yourself and another.

This Nerf Foam Film by RackaRacka Has Over The Top Action, Special Effects, and Stunts! (Video)

 

It’s been awhile since I’ve had the time to look for good Foam Films online, but this newer one by RackaRacka is quite something! Sure it’s got the usual gun sound effects for the blasters, but they sound good here. The cut cutting, extreme action will leave you engaged, and it’s special effects are both good & bad. I don’t want to spoil too much, but that’s part of the charm and humor of the video. There’s a few NSFW words thrown around a few times, but if you can look past that then it’s quite the great foam film.

Nerf Youtuber Coop772 To No Longer Take Commissions

coop772comish

Yesterday, Nerf Youtber Coop772 took to Facebook to announce his closing of commissions.

Commissions are closed for good. I’ve said this many times in the past, but I think it’s for srs(serious) this time. I’ve come to the conclusion that working on other people’s modifications that aren’t innovative or truly unique is pulling from my innovation within the hobby. My recent goal of trying to output cooler, faster, more unique pieces is more difficult when taking commissions for blasters with “normal” modifications that I’ve done dozens of times. I will still be selling blasters on my webstore, but they will be whatever modifications and paint I feel like adding at that time, rather than things specified by a customer.

I realize this won’t make sense to a lot of people, but I feel it’s the best way to keep this hobby fun for myself and to only output awesome mods that I’m truly proud of, rather than the normal internals with a normal paint job that I could do blindfolded. I’m trying to challenge myself and do new stuff, hopefully something useful or enjoyable will come out of it for you guys, the viewers.

While commissions can be a good way to make money, it can be draining on your mental and physical as well. At the end of this statement, Coopy says he’s “trying to challenge myself and do new stuff”. So it looks like he’s aiming for the long run enjoyment in Nerf.

New Zombie Strike Clear Shot Appears Online, Is Actually Another Reshelled & Repainted Blaster

Thanks to the German/Dutch fan site dartblaster.de, we have an overview video and heads up on a new Zombie Strike blaster called the Clear Shot. It’s a reshell/repaint of the 2009 Dart Tag Stormfire. It also features a similar scope similar to the one on the Super Soaker Shot Blast. The reviewer also mentions that by looking at the internals, it seems that it doesn’t get Elite Ranges. A bit of a shame that Elite Ranges still aren’t the standard for some blasters.

Also looking at the box art, their’s a Target Exclusive design on it, so USA people should expect this to be a Target Exclusive.

You can view some photos of the blaster here.
