Atamaii: Zombie Strike @ SDCC 2013

 Yes, that IS a Zombie Strike MACHETE. Anime toy blog Atamaii posted this awesome look at the Zombie Strike presence at this year's San Diego Comic Con and it looks amazeballz. There's stuff there that we haven't seen before.. Zombie Strike  Z BOMBS even?:P
So other than the very cool looking Machete (which the tag says will be released next month in the US), we've also got these Z Bombs (not sure if they do anything other than work like throwing a Nerf football, but they also seem to come in varieties like a buzz saw?), A reskined Jolt targeting kit and accessories like bandanas and pouches. Also gives us a look at the Side Strike's holster. All and all a great piece of intel from Atamaii!

Check out the vid after the jump. Cheers JB!

  1. Z Bombs?! It'd be boss if they'd burst open with darts, but they probably are just Nerf balls. Which would hurt zombies. and little brothers.

    The machete is awesome though!

      "When I think of blades in Zombies, I think of machetes, or axes, or knives or even cleavers and baseball bats but not really full length swords."

    2. it takes time to design, come on! LEAVE ME ALONE! *runs to my room and slams the door*

    3. SBNC, it looks amazingly similar to your photoshopped design! I'm so psyched to buy this!!

    4. A machete design looks like a machete? It's not really 'amazingly similar', it's a machete! SBNC's looked nice and i am not knocking it, i'm just saying its not like they were psychic or anything:-P

    5. Google image search "machete", there are many blade designs, not just one. It might be coincidence though, I posted that design on the 14th, just 5 days later they have a factory pumping them out? There is still my Zombie Strike Katana and Blunderbuss :)

    6. Yes. i'm sure that's what happened.

    7. I don't think SBNC's machete looks anything like the one in the video. Just sayin.

  3. OMG sooooooooo cool! Love the machete. The 2014 blasters look cooler now we can see them in video. Really looking forward to the crossbow. WANT

    1. We're all probably gonna just paint em anyway regardless. I want the Rebelle Crossbow but it'll be bright red by the time ive finished with it.

  5. I want a Zombie Strike bandana. For when I get sweaty.

  6. These Z Bombs sure look useless. :|

    1. I think they look pretty useful because you can kill zombies or other players from a nice range. I can throw a foot ball about 1oo feet so they can come in handy at far range.

  7. Hmmm... It's interesting, the jolt repaint thing looks as if it has a dart holder on top which holds 3? darts. I'm not sure, but that's what it looks like to me.... :/ who knows?!!

    1. And yet another jolt. Ugh

  8. the crossbow appears to fire single darts or 2 at the same time, that or either it just has 2 dart holders, so i guess it is a overpowered firestrike.

    1. I've said this before that the crossbow, while looks cool is really still just a single shot blaster that you have to cock and fire a single dart at a time. It'll definitely cost more than a firestrike, and be bigger than a firestrike, but it won't be any better suited in battle than a firestrike.

      Delete
    2. I really don't mind that the crossbow is just a big single shot blaster because... well... that's what a crossbow it is. It fires one arrow, and then you need to put a new one in it.

      We have a TON of clip blasters.. if you want to fire 35 darts fully auto... go grab a stampede and pop in a drum.

      If you want a crossbow.. here it is.

  9. I want these so bad. Sledgefire is my zombiestrike of choice, and now the machete too.

  10. Great stuff Pocket. what's your ZS gear of choice then?

  11. I'm completely convinced the crossbow has the same progressive air restrictors as the roughcut and triad. The sidestrike is probably a singled strongarm, and the vortex blaster is a very innovative reshell of a proton. I will be amazed if the crossbow plunger is any larger than the firestrike's.

    1. Its just a big firestrike

    2. I'm also expecting it to operate like a rough cut or triad. Fingers crossed!

  12. HVZ used to be played with sock balls before Nerf blasters were introduced, so the Z Bombs are probably just foam stress ball style foam to use instead of a sock ball. They look pretty rad though.

  13. Interesting how even after the official press release, there's still more to the Zombie Strike line. I am glad they did bring out a Machete over the dumb ass sword, but the Z Bombs seem like they won't do a whole lot. The holster for the Sidestrike reminds me of the clip holders for Vortex blasters.

  14. Z bombs = branded balled up socks.

    Standard HvZ weapon, now comes with profits for Hasbro!

  15. I love love love that crossbow. I can't wait till January! I want it now!

  16. I wonder if the machete will fit into the sheath on the back of the old N-Strike vests, that would be sweet! The blade might be too wide though...

    ReplyDelete
  17. crossfire has no turret yes its not a reshell of the strong arm aka girl crossbow

    ReplyDelete
  18. For anyone wondering why they made z bombs it's because hvz players use balled up socks as grenades.
