That said, I’m back this week with two reviews of recently released blasters. Today’s post will focus on the new Nerf Elite Mega Cycloneshock, a big blaster with a long name.
I must confess my biases. First, I love revolver blasters. The Maverick, the Strongarm, and especially the Hammershot hold a special place in my heart. Second, I love the idea of Nerf Mega. Notice that I said that I love the “idea” of it. I, like many nerfers, was less than impressed by the Centurion, but I feel like the Magnus has more than made up for it. As soon as I heard of the Mega line, I was hoping that Hasbro would make a revolver, and now they have…
The Nerf Mega Centurion held such promise. Looking at the pictures of it, it looks really big. Really mean and intimidating. I actually quite like the way this blaster looks. But, as you know, looks aren't everything. The blaster ate dates for lunch, literally. It would jam and damage the darts so bad that you couldn't use them anymore. That was a big no no. Especially when Mega Darts are not in abundance. Most people will have a large stash of Elite darts, but Mega darts are new and so different. Tsk, tsk, tsk.
NERF has been at the top of its innovation game lately, looking to appeal to the teen audience with each new release. And with every new product the company reveals, the more impressed we become. Behold the brand’s latest creation; the NERF Mega Mastodon blaster, their first motorized blaster in the Mega line.
