|What makes something Sonic? Regardless.. Sonic..is cool:)|
|Recon CS-6 Sonic Series box. Gotta love Photoshop:)|
The Sonic Series will be translucent green reshells of popular N-Strike blasters; the Recon CS-6, Maverick REV-6, Nitefinder EX-3, Deploy CS-6 and the Vulcan EBF-25. I've been very interested in the rumours of a clear Vulcan; I guess this is the next best thing?
|Recon CS-6 Sonic Series. The 4th variant:)|
Prices on the toysrus.com website have them very similar in price to their traditional N-Strike paint scheme brothers, so it is just a reshell; the clear series had many people suggest they were more powerful and perhaps these sonic series will be the same, but it's a pure aesthetics thing more than anything else. They're scheduled to be shipped on the 10th December.. which isn't that far away:)
|Maverick REV-6 in Sonic..green.|
I'm not sure what translucent green has to do with 'Sonic' and why Nerf chose this particular colour; I think you'll either love it or hate it. For the collectors in us, we'll probably pick some up, but for the serious Nerfer, they might give it a miss. (The clear series was already considered a bit of a gimmick.. I love gimmicks of course)

The designer in me would have preferred something like translucent blue; that would have looked fantastic against the orange internals. Or, perhaps even sticking with the original clear shells but changing the colours of the internals to, red or blue. Either way, green it the colour of choice, and these bad boys will be out in the US pretty soon and hopefully in other parts of the world soon.

So what do you reckon? Will you pick one up? If so, which ones (if not all of them?) What do you think about the translucent green?
