The Solar Recon is a Koosh ball blaster that was released in 2012 under the Koosh Galaxy series. It requires four "AA" batteries to operate the glow-in-the-dark feature.

It comes packaged with four glow-in-the-dark Koosh Galaxy balls and instructions.


The Solar Recon features the ability to "charge" its glow-in-the-dark ammunition, much like the Nerf 2012 Light It Up series of blasters. It has two clip points for a sling or strap: one above the muzzle and one at the end of the blaster.

It uses a feeding tube for balls similar to that of the Nerf 1995 Nerf Action Ripsaw and the 2004 Ball Blasters Buzzsaw.


Alongside the Alien Archer, Space Agent, and Star Scout, it was released in the first line of the Koosh Galaxy blasters.

Reloading and firing

To reload the Solar Recon, simply insert up to four balls into the built-in clip. The fourth ball will not fit entirely in, so do not attempt to jam it in.[1]

Sharply and quickly pull the front handle back to fire a ball. Return it to its original position after firing a ball to repeat the process.
