The Cranking Cannon is a Lanard blaster that was released under the Total X-Stream Air series.

It comes packaged with a detachable disc feeding tube and thirty Astro Discs.


The Cranking Cannon features an unique firing mechanism: a crank that primes the blaster and a firing trigger. While other blasters have featured hand cranks, such as the Nerf Razorbeast or the Cyclotron, they did not feature a firing trigger. The crank is located on the right side of the blaster; there is no crank located on the left of the blaster, making this blaster difficult for left-handed people to use.

It advertises a firing range of up to thirty feet.


The Cranking Cannon was re-released as an Air Zone blaster, retaining its original name.
