Trivia

  • This series shares quite a lot in common with rival toy series Tek Recon. Both series feature electronic devices which can be attached to blasters, as well as a new ammunition source. Perhaps most similar between the two series are the names. While not official, it is possible that the naming of the series was deliberately made similar.
