|This Machine Pistol takes it's cues from the Barricade- and then.. mashes them up:)|
I stumbled across this interesting (albeit rather ugly) line of blasters while taking Jerm from Nerf Mods + Reviews's lead and had a browse on the internet for some alternative toy blasters perhaps not seen in the western world:) Now, it's pretty common to see a knock of Nitefinder or Maverick, but I have to admit these pieces from "Arsenal Toys" were unique enough to catch my eye.
They seem to be using originally designed shells and a more innovative thought process in the design than the standard knock off. Have a look at the images after the jump.
|Darts load from the top?!!|
|Instructions for the Machine Pistol|
|Looks rather oversized.|
This 'Mortar Pistol' shoots some rather oversized projectiles, when a foam dart is just not enough:P Have a look at the size of the cocking mechanism (hehe)
|The ammo. Just a tad phallic admittedly..|
This 'Advance Pistol' reminds me of something from Buzzbee- other than the rather large handle on the cocking mechanism:)
This "Power Rifle" is the bolt action blaster you have when..you don't have a bolt and would prefer pulling on a ring instead;P Again, interesting design choices but again only 6 shots.
This "Impulsive Armer" is very left field- it reminds me of the Spiderman/Venom dart tag blasters, or something out of Iron Man in the way it straps to the user's forearm. What's interesting (and I can't read chinese m'fraid to confirm it) is it seems to have both a manual cocking mechanism and some sort of automatic firing capability (due to it requiring batteries)
All those kids who always begged for a grenade launcher attachment?:) The "Mortar and Rifle" gives you the Power rifle with a Mortar single shot attachment. It ain't pretty.. but (foam) war.. ain't. :P
Sure, the quality isn't nearly as polished as Nerf but they are considerably cheaper (88 Yuan is around 12 bucks AUS) but what I like to see is it's good to see a different play on toy blaster ideas that aren't just obvious Nerf rip offs:)
