Orange Mod Works Blaster?!

Nifty designs...
Orange Mod Works has announced via their Facebook Page that they plan on designing and building their own blaster as part of their O-Tac Gear line!
"Hey everyone,

The time has finally come for us to design and build a blaster and we need your help with the design direction! Each of 4 blasters in the posted picture represent a different design aesthetic so without thinking about the actual function leave a comment below with your favorite design or combination of designs. Keep in mind that this is just the initial direction and things like bright colors (HvZ safe) and actual function will come later.
They are asking for the community's input with the design. Head on over to cast your vote!

What do you think of the idea of OMW blasters? Sound off in the comments below.

A Jolt Of A Different Color

Hello again old friend.
Either you love it or you hate it, but the Jolt seems to be here stay. With more variations than probably any other Nerf blaster in recent history, there's a little somethin' for everyone. It's no stranger to makeovers, re-shells, or re-release, and the Zombie Strike line is no different. So lets jump right into the Zombiestrike Target Set.

New Super Soakers Hit Target

Bows... bows everywhere.
Spotted at a Target in San Jose, CA, Hasbro's newest line of Super Soaker water blasters are hitting shelves in force. While not strictly Nerf, it's nice to see these hitting shelves this early.  Perhaps we'll see some of their foam cousin's show up a season or two early as well. Just like the past few generations of the Super Soaker line the majority of these don't seem to have triggers, but it also looks like they've all but done away with  tac rails, accessories, and the magazines... or water clips... or whatever.
