|The X-ploderz X-ranger 1075. Love the token asian kid:)|
Xploderz are launching officially this month in the USA, Canada and UK. We've learnt that the line is "an innovative ammunition system tied to a unique line of projectile blasterz - creating an entirely new weapon system for play indoors or outside." with full marketing and publicity will begin in February as store distribution increases. A press release at Toy Shop UK says they are "Designed for kids from age 8 and upwards, they fire soft ammunition shells that are infused with water! Not only that, they fire them farther and faster than any other toy gun on the market." Apparently up to 85 feet out of the box? niiice..
|Mmmm. blue caviar.. :P X-ploderz ammo|
Now..I'm still trying to work out what EXACTLY are these ammo balls made of; when we first got word of the X-ploderz I thought they would be similar to those water pearls you find in vases at weddings:
|5 minutes later the bride unleashed the ballz|
UPDATE: Xploderz are distributed by Hobbeezone Toys. One of Hobbeezone's other products is "Orbeez" which.. yup, similar to the balls in vases at weddings. Sounds like THAT's the ammo?
|XBlaster 75. Looks like a Radar gun:)|
Also on the Smyths site: "The XBlaster 75™ is the ultimate handheld air-powered weapon; ideal for close range combat and fires up to 50 feet! Includes Xploderz™ Ammo Clip and 75 ready-to-fire rounds. Pull back the Power Arm and release to fire! Hit your target as many times as you want and with as much force as you can; Count the hits!!!! More ammo, more distance, more power, Xploderz™ lets you outblast and outlast any opponent."
|X-Stormer 575. Baffling:)|
Finally, the Smyths has the XRanger 1075 (the one at the beginning of the post) which would be my favourite:
"Complete your Xploderz™ arsenal and prepare for the ultimate in air-powered blasting with this awesome long-range blaster! Even your toughest opponent won't know what’s hit them when you unleash the power of this unstoppable blaster. Improve your accuracy and become a sharp shooter by using the view finder and foldable bipod for extra precision; Shoot at the enemy from up to 100 feet away! The detachable gun arm also makes for a quick getaway! Includes XRanger 1075™, 2 x Xploderz™ Ammo Depot with 500 Ready-to-fire rounds each and Xploderz™ Ammo Clip which holds 75 Xploderz™ ammo. Transfer your Xploderz™ ammo into your Xploderz Ammo Clip and slide onto your Blaster. Pull back the Power Arm and release to fire!"
Drop us a line peeps if you have any more intel on these babies, because we're very keen to know more!
