Are the new Rogue One blasters everything we've asked for?
On sale soon!
These have already been showing up on store shelves.
Hasbro has a rocky history with it's licensed products. Traditionally their size and function is aimed toward it's younger audience. But with the FOST blaster this last season being decent is there hope for more on the horizon? It looks like the Captain Cassian Andor blaster may be what we've asked for for a long time. It looks to be a flyweel blaster, and marks the notable return of the Raider stock. Let's hope that this is a true collapsible stock that we've all loved. The price is a bit steep, but considering it also comes with what looks to be a re painted Modulus scope and Spectre barrel, it may be the blaster we've always wanted. Plus this is part of the new Glowstrike line. That's a lot packed into one blaster and it looks like the form factor is significantly larger than the previously released FOST blaster. Hopefully the ranges are increased along with the size. At the moment this looks to be a Target exclusive, so keep your eyes out for early shelf stocking, or get ready for it's presumable drop on Force Friday (Sept.30th).
