RE: Super Soaker colors Edit
Hi, I do believe there are some pages that refer to the color as black instead of dark blue. I believe I changed it to the proper dark blue when I revised the reviews. However, I can assume that I missed a few pages. If you want, you can change the articles yourself so that they say dark blue instead of black. I'd appreciate it, since I've been busy this weekend.

RE: Tactical Laser Sight? Edit
Dart tag discontinued?Edit
let's continue the discussion here, its a bit messy over their on the talk page.
the quick 16 is not on shelves anymore? that's a bit of a concern, are you sure it won't come back? nerf may just be making room for the elite blasters. its got the spotlight this year. while the pyragon and snapfire 8 may be just as awesome, they are on the sidelines. the clearance of dart tag maybe just to get some more space for elite and for the snapfire 8.
Yes, I'm absolutely certain of that. Target (and most other retail stores) don't put items on clearance if they are going to be carrying them again in the future. They would just pull the items from stock and send them back to the manufacturer to be sent to other stores that do have room for them. All they have to do to make room for the Retaliator and Rampage is to pull the Raider and the Recon and put those on clearance, along with the corresponding non-Elite accessories (which they are also doing). Putting the Raider and Recon on clearance makes sense (since we know they are getting replaced by the Retaliator and Rampage), but putting the Quick 16, etc. on clearance can only mean one thing: they are getting discontinued by Nerf. As for making room for the Snapfire 8, it really wouldn't take much, have you seen how small that thing is? It is smaller than a Maverick, and not much larger than a Nightfinder. Pull one facing of a similar sized item off the shelf and presto, you have room for the Snapfire. Certainly no reason to pull something as large as the Quick 16 (unless you were making room for 5 or 6 facings of Snapfires!).

By the way, when I was at a second Target store today, I saw one last Quick 16 on the shelf (a clearance endcap actually), and was really tempted to get it since it was less than $8, but that really isn't one of my favorite guns, and I already have one. I figured someone else could get more use from it than me. The other Target near me sold out of the clearance guns last week some time, although they still have a bunch of flip-clip dart packs and the camo ammo bag packs left. Right now they are at 30-50% off. If they are still there when they hit 75% off, I'll be all over them.
Bluedragon1971 (talk) 04:49, July 21, 2012 (UTC)
Just found something else. Check out the listing for the Swarmfire on Amazon.com
Look at the bottom of the details: "Discontinued by manufacturer: Yes" And it is selling for less than half price now.
Bluedragon1971 (talk) 05:21, July 21, 2012 (UTC)
thanks for the reply but could you next time send a message as a response? its easier to know if you made a reply or not. thanks in advanced.
wow, that's a shocker! those blasters came out only a year a go and hasbro wants to get rid of them? well i take your word for it.
Hey, while I have no doubt in my mind that the Quick 16 is discontinued and I have personally seen sales on the Dart Tag lineup ($4.99 SS, $9.99 SP6, $14.99 Q16) I think the reasoning for this that the new Dart Tag lineup has now been released, which includes the Sharp Shot, Speedload 6 and Swarmfire as stronger than they were before. The older models are now being replaced on the shelves by those blasters, from what I'm getting. By the way NM8, just because Amazon says it's discontinued doesn't mean you need to add a discontinued template on the articles. Let's wait a bit to make sure, please. GG370 14:13, July 21, 2012 (UTC)
GG360, I guess that is a possibility, since the Sharp Shot that I got on clearance there was an orange trigger model. But if that was the case, wouldn't they be doing the same with the Swarmfire as well, since it was also re-released with a blue trigger? I've yet to see a Swarmfire on clearance anywhere other than Amazon.com. Does anyone know if the orange and blue trigger models of the Dart Tag guns have different barcodes on the boxes? If they do, then it would be a likely explanation, if not then it wouldn't since the register at the store would have no way of differentiating between the two.
Bluedragon1971 (talk) 12:50, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
- I'm not blaming you for anything, it's just that that knock-off does not belong in the article. There are hundreds of knock-offs out there, that one isn't significant enough to be on the article. Unless there's only one knock-off of the blaster, it shouldn't be on the article. If we kept that, we'd have to add the SDL Foam Dart Blaster, the Cyclone Shoot Magnum, etc.
- So, that's why I removed it. This has given me more reason to have a gallery pages implemented, because we can show people the different knock-offs there. That would be an appropriate page, not on the trivia section. Gage 15:30, July 25, 2012 (UTC)
Shot Blast/Tornado Strike shoulder stocks Edit
You kind of merged the page in an interesting way, but I went and fixed it to fit what I was going to do. It's really not a problem at all. As a heads up, it's good to know that having "/" in a page name will make it split off from an existing page. That's what we use for the current Nerfer pages as an example, and it's what we'll be doing when we split blaster reviews off from their own articles. Jet [Talk • Contributions] 16:00, July 26, 2012 (UTC)
me and jetcell agreed to remove the reference to media due to the fact that its mostly blasters that have been modified-painted. it also clogs up a good amount of space on articles.
Dart Tag and Elite DartsEdit
Well, I went to my local Target today and as I expected, they had reset the Nerf aisle and had some of the Elite products out. The ONLY Dart Tag product that was still on the shelf was the Swarmfire. The new signing over the Nerf products shows the Pyragon and the Hailfire. I picked up an 18 pack of Elite darts, and will do some testing with them tonight on my blasters. I have at least one of nearly every N-Strike blaster, as well as a Quick 16, Sharp Shot, Speedload 6 and a few other older Nerf blasters (AT3K, AT2K, and a couple of others). I'm really interested to see how well they work in the Barricade and the Vulcan.
if you have time, can you give your opinion on the community vote regarding what we should do with rumors and speculation? thanks for your time.
RE: Raider & Recon Edit
Yes, it is pretty much known that N-Strike Elite products will replace N-Strike products. I kind of want to hold off on saying that the Raider and Recon are discontinued, just to see if maybe Nerf's PR people will release a statement about it. Wait another week; I might send them an email to get an official statement for NM&R.
As for the Vulcan, people keep saying it's discontinued but I haven't seen anything online to back up this claim. Do you think that's discontinued too? Jet [Talk • Contributions] 19:12, August 9, 2012 (UTC)
N-Strike Discontinued products Edit
After reading a few of the things you brought up, I decided to look up the fate of some N-Strike blasters. This is some of the things I've recently noticed.
- The Switch Shot EX-3 is getting increasingly rare, and from what I know is only available currently in the NS/NSE video game Double Blast.
- I haven't seen the Secret Strike AS-1 for a long time now, pretty much ever since the Jolt was dropped. It could just be my area though.
- The Magstrike AS-10 and Rapid Fire AS-20 are discontinued, according to this post: http://forums.humansvszombies.org/index.php/topic,4072.0.html . I don't see either very often, with the Magstrike only being really seen at Canadian Tire stores here, and the RF20 at Zellers stores. Oddly enough, the only RF20 we get in my neighborhood are 2002 packaged ones.
- I have never seen a Big Bad Bow in Ontario. I don't know why, but they are rather rare here.
- It also seems that the Vulcan EBF-25 and Firefly REV-8 are becoming hard to find as well. I wouldn't be surprised if these ones were axed soon.
alpha trooper reloading sectionEdit
your correct on that, seems like i was a bit sleepy. wasn't thinking clearly at all. i was probably thinking about inserting the clip, then forgot to fix the rest.
an additional request, not sure if you voted or not but it would be helpful to know your stance on wether or not leaked/unconfirmed information should be added to pages. head on over to the forum to vote. :)
sorry my bad, i will make sure that i make a new header next time. if i removed your signature, i am sorry for that. it wasn't intentional.
sure go for it. i will ask Hasbro singapore when i get a chance on facebook. i apologize for moving your vote in the forum vote.
RE: Firefly Edit
They usually have sales on things every now and then, like when the Dart Tag blasters were on sale for $4.99, $9.99, $14.99 and $19.99. They're probably back to their usual prices now too. Gage 14:14, August 13, 2012 (UTC)
- I still don't have a Firefly, and I really wish I did. I'm just not willing to fork over the $29.99 it costs at Toys R Us usually. Oh, and that's Chloe Moretz. She's in a bunch of movies (Kick Ass, Let Me In, Dark Shadows, Hugo) and she's one of my faovurite actresses :) Gage 14:54, August 13, 2012 (UTC)
color series & community vote consensusEdit
The community vote was decided yesterday, sorry you were not able to make it on chat last night. the consensus was in our favor (mostly), its on the bottom of the forum topic.
consensus recap: unconfirmed rumors = forum topic, leaked information have a template. the forum topic is still technically an article-redirect link
as for the color series, i have sent Hasbro Singapore the question regarding whether or not those are discontinued or not. I should be able to get a response by tomorrow.
- Wow, thank you! That was a really nice thing to say :) Although I'd like to have a Firefly, you don't have to do that. But thank you for offering! and also, the vote was in favor of neither side; it was to have the whole page on the forums, unlike having only some of the information or none of the information, so in a way everyone kind of won. Gage 02:19, August 14, 2012 (UTC)
Color series updateEdit
Hasbro singapore has confirmed only that the "green sonic series" are currently being sold in Toys ‘R’ Us. it seems like your instinct was right, no mention of the others. i guess the rest are in fact discontinued.Nerfmaster8 (talk) 21:54, August 14, 2012 (UTC)
- Wasn't so much instinct as observation, but yeah, I was pretty sure about it. Thanks for the confirmation though.

RE: Super Soaker Edit
I don't have an issue, i was updating the information (history). I have talked to hasbro singapore and they did confirm that the Hailfire isn't replacing any blaster (vulcan), i was only updating inforation on both articles. You are free to go and ask if you don't believe me. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 23:06, September 5, 2012 (UTC)
the size and weight have been added to the article, you can check wired.com for the confirm of information. Hope this answers your question on the talk pafe :)Nerfmaster8 (talk) 06:31, September 9, 2012 (UTC)
new dart blaster wikiEdit
If you ever get tired of editing here or annoyed at staff, you are welcome to come and edit at the new wiki that i created; though its not ready to be launched yet. I am currently setting up the portal system via main page slider.
i think jet and gage are trying to create a portal system, they never finished it just like the broken links. We will have to wait until next summer before they work on the wiki more. I feel like i got more done creating a new wiki over the summer making the same stuff and adding more in the same amount of time. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 17:59, September 20, 2012 (UTC)
- To clarify, we do not plan to hold off until next summer to finish work to the site; we've never stated this anywhere. It's an ongoing process that can get halted due to life and other priorities. Jet [Talk • Contributions] 21:54, September 20, 2012 (UTC)
well i thought you guys were going to finish it over last summer, guess not. Since the end of summer, you guys haven't made any progress that i can see, so i assummed that you guys would wait. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 21:57, September 20, 2012 (UTC)
It seems as if this atribution thing has happened before and i don't know if its you forgetting to sign or not. I don't get it. I don't touch your signature so i don't know what is up. I don't think anyone is removing signatures to i really do think that its you forgetting to sign. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 18:39, October 2, 2012 (UTC)
the dart tag and n-strike blasters are different, they shoot different darts and are under different series. Sgnerf already confirmed that the jolt is basically an updated version of the jolt but with the same range-30 feet. This is a repaint, jet already agreed to merge the article once this isn't considered leaked. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 04:38, November 3, 2012 (UTC)
a small change in the shell or design should not constitute a new article. all n-strike and n-strike elite blasters are compatiable with both types of darts. Sgnerf already stated that the range is practically the same as the jolt, we can add the muzzle change in the history section.
comparing the dart tag and elite versions of the nitefinder (Firestrike), there is much more of a difference.
- noting the recent leaks, which will be confirmed later, the new version has a different light unit and has a storage for 2 darts under the muzzle. the dart tag version did not include these new features. also the new version has a different way of turning on the light than the dart tag version.
alot of the time it just depends on how much information there is on the blaster and the appearance. if it has a completely new feature design or accessory then create an article.
- an example is the recon and retaliator stocks, those are different enough to not be merged.
- single and double blockades can be merged as its the same thing basically. on is a single sheet and the other is 2 sheets stuck together.
- on the other hand, the new PPS would be merged as its the same thing or almost the same exact thing with a new color scheme.
with that said, it may make n-force extremely long but n-force could be merged into a page or two with a gallery for images-there is so little information that consituties different articles. at most you have a small paragraph. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 22:27, November 3, 2012 (UTC)
not sure if you got what jet meant but we are NOT merging until further notice from Hasbro, the current information is from leaks.
on second thought, it seems like there was information "missing" from the dart tag article that constituted my previous judgement. that error has now been updated in the article. at this stage if you want to merge the article then i suggest that you bring your concern up with jetcell. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 00:24, November 4, 2012 (UTC)
i did not misinterpret you, maybe you were giving an example but that is a legit concern if you look at the big picture.. you said that it would be more work to merge old articles, i disagree. lightning storm could be merged as the only difference is the accessories, sub series info would be added to the color schemes-only difference is the reviews. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 22:13, November 4, 2012 (UTC)
Hail-Fire flip clip & elite clips myth (busted)Edit
I am pretty sure that we had this argument before and someone did bust it. You could jam the clip in, but that doesn't mean that it functions well, which means that it doesn't count. Not all the n-strike stuff is compatible. I have already left a question on Nerf Nation asking for further details but someone has already answered it on this wiki before.
seems like others have confirmed the bust on Nerf Nation, see for yourself: https://www.facebook.com/NerfNation/posts/10151172591493171
let me begin by saying that before this reveal by amazon.uk, we were in fact using amazon as a reference to released blasters; never with unconfirmed blasters.
now that amazon has gone a head and leaked/revealed all information on the new products, Hasbro decided to play along with what happened instead of denying stuff as it didn't work last time. embracing the leak was a better option for them as people would start mocking them and other stuff. an additional factor was their lawsuit with pocket... they learned that trying to remove leaks only makes it spread more. basic nerf actually went a head, bought the stryfle and posted results; I don't exactly support this and i doubt that hasbro does as well. Hasbro may confirm the rest of the blasters next week but until then can we show some restraint on this topic. I don't intend on starting an edit war with you, but it seems to me like you are starting to act like gage here.
Jet may have accepted the information (for no reason besides the fact that amazon revealed it, still a leak) and all the reveals from amazon and store bought items, that doesn't mean that its confirmed yet. Hasbro wasn't planning to confirm the blasters until the toy fair, well now there will be just about nothing new. Scratch the planned schedule for 2013, release the blasters earlier than planned. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 16:07, November 29, 2012 (UTC)
RE: Stryfe Edit
If we consider blasters being sold as being confirmed, they would have been confirmed long ago from them being sold in Singapore and whatnot.
Generally we look to Nerf and Hasbro for official confirmations. If it is being sold in stores early, then that's great. However, we do go off of their announcements for when blasters are officially out; soft release dates are sometimes included in the article as well. Jet [Talk • Contributions] 17:50, November 29, 2012 (UTC)
Hasbro has their products manufactured in China, so leaks do happen as factory managers don't really care. This is also where leaks originate, workers take or sneak products home and then post information or sell the thing for cash.
since hasbro has made it clear that they are going to give more details next week, could we please be a bit more pateient until that time?
i do agree with you that the current system of how blasters are sold is poorly designed as they are sold either without being announced or on the market a head of the advertised release date. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 00:36, November 30, 2012 (UTC)
RE:Stryfe on Amazon Edit
Yes, I've seen this online on blogs and whatnot. However, we don't note where blasters can be obtained early with soft releases and whatnot. The only time we note specific stores in articles is with store exclusives or things like that. Jet [Talk • Contributions] 04:07, December 3, 2012 (UTC)
i removed the info as i wasn't paying attention to the page as there was more important pages to worry about. it may be common sense but its based of leaked images. you guys can decide wether to keep it or not. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 21:13, December 5, 2012 (UTC)
if you read my first comment on the triad talk page, i said to just leave it alone and not delete it until its confirmed. I never said to actually create the article, jet went a head and did that. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 23:25, December 5, 2012 (UTC)
once nerf nation confirmed the styfe and and the elite rayven, i replaced those images with the official stock images. i tagged the original amazon images for deletion and jet removed them.
i am not trying to give anyone a hard time, just trying to keep the information and images as accurate as possible by using official info straight from Hasbro.
yes, amazon is an official source but that doesn't mean that the images are as accurate as they should be. amazon posted the elite blasters as blue, stryfe and rayven were revealed to be purple in color.
on top of that didn't we have conflicting viewpoints on priming the diatron and its capacity? just because its considered official doesn't mean its completely accurate. let's just wait and see if anything is changed before we move a head to assume there is no difference.
by the way, we use the official stock images over images revealed by websites once they are made public. and yes i am fully aware that the new jolt and reflex were not NSE, that was pretty much a given once nerf mods and reviews posted the actual products in their hands.
why don't you go as Hasbro why there was a color difference between their released image and amazon's. the images that i replaced were the official stock images. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 19:31, December 7, 2012 (UTC)
6 dart clipEdit
its not sold separately but is sold with other accessories. that doesn't mean to include it in the list, what should be included instead is the mission kit. this clip isn't sold separately on its own, its with an accessory. so at this point, maybe we should define what is an accessory? Nerfmaster8 (talk) 00:56, December 10, 2012 (UTC)
clearing up confusionEdit
i see accessories that are separate products sold separately from the blasters such as clips/drums or the mission kits. the 18 dart clips/drums are included because they are sold separately from the blasters, the 6 dart clip is not. the 6 dart clip does indeed come with the flip clip but isn't avaliable for separate retail sale, that's why i removed it from the list. its the same reason why the retaliator and rampage clips/drums were removed from the list, not for separate retail sale. now i do realize that people sell these clips/drums on ebay separately but its not the same as retail. we should not confuse people on what is sold separately, that's why its best to leave them out of the accessory list. mission kits are included because they are avaliable for retail sale.
the last person that commented on the dart merge was gage.
Nerfmaster8 (talk) 02:06, December 10, 2012 (UTC) okay so the clips are sold as a mission kit, that doesn't mean to put the image of the 6 dart clip as the accessory. it should be properly listed as a mission kit. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 04:36, December 10, 2012 (UTC)
sorry for arguing with you about the stock images and the mission kits. i just prefer to go with the official image as the websites are not always accurate, better to use official info. as for mission kits, probably best to use package image than the separate images. i'm going tp upload a few more packaging images. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 18:47, December 10, 2012 (UTC)
tactical scope imageEdit
oh, that's probably why. i upload a bunch of packaging images while i had the editor open so that i could insert the images. i think we need a template "currently being worked on, please do not edit". Nerfmaster8 (talk) 21:08, December 10, 2012 (UTC)
i'm in the US by the way. i actually get information from all the blogs (official and community) but prefer info from official ones. I tend to relent on posting leaks ever since Hasbro went after pocket and that when it was allowed, it got a bit out of control- speculation and information that isn't necessary in articles. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 19:52, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
re: NS dart discontinuedEdit
I am asking jet before i add in the templates so that we don't have a disagreement. just want to make sure that everyone is on the same page. They may be starting to disappear but jet may want to wait for another year or so to confirm. amazon is still selling the darts online, but its expensive. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 21:41, December 11, 2012 (UTC)
- My apologies for butting in on an outdated discussion, but since when were the darts starting to disappear? They are still being sold in stores, just because a successor dart is released doesn't mean they've stopped producing them. Gage 03:59, December 17, 2012 (UTC)
dart tag elite?Edit
i saw that the last comment on facebook was that "Hasbro denied that there will be a dart tag elite". could you give a link or something that backs your statement up? I find that a bit hard to believe, even though some items are listed as discontinued by amazon. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 02:51, December 12, 2012 (UTC)
re: dart tag eliteEdit
Yes FFA said that the brands will be kept separate but that doesn't that they won't do an elite series for dart tag and vortex. its still possible. as of right now, it could go either way as amazon has listed a few blasters as discontinued though the snapfire 8 hasn't been released worldwide yet. i guess time will tell on this one. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 04:29, December 12, 2012 (UTC)
news template heads upEdit
we know that they have not, but will in the near future. i was just bringing up whether or not to actually mark the darts as discontinued.
forgot to mention that the packaging image from Nerf.com is the same image as the stock image that you posted a few days ago. as far as i am concerned about the white stripe, not sure why hasbro didn't include that on either image on nerf.com. the packaging from before shows that the colors are also a bit brighter than they actually are. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 03:36, December 24, 2012 (UTC)
i'm honestly not trying to argue with you at all, i just simply posted the image from nerf.com and assumed that it was accurate. I apologize and admit that i was wrong.
just to let you know, amazon just changed their images to the wrong ones.
Distinguish template change Edit
Nah, that was me. I was trying to get it to be so that you could put custom text if you want, but leaving it blank would be just fine too... seems that's not the case and they have to have custom text, which is really lame. Normally I would have gone back and fixed the template back to its original state, but I would prefer there to be the option for custom text for when pages have parenthesis in their names. Jet [Talk • Contributions] 20:23, December 28, 2012 (UTC)
RE: Jolt and Reflex listed as Elite on Nerf's web site! Edit
Yeah, I saw that recently as well... I thought Nerf would be consistent with the new N-Strike Elite series, but I guess not... I'm still going with that the Jolt and Reflex are not Elite blasters, since their packaging says that they are N-Strike blasters. Not to mention, the Reflex doesn't fire well enough to get Elite ranges. The Jolt I can see people saying it's an Elite blaster but... not the Reflex. Jet [Talk • Contributions] 20:34, December 28, 2012 (UTC)
i think we need to redefine this term as there are some confusion about it. if its announced in any way by Hasbro or listed on their shopping website, its confirmed. Traid was not announced but was listed on nerf.com. like you said with the discontinued, amazon gives info on what is discontinued-its practically the only source verifying besides what is seen in stores.
if you want, go a head and add in the new blasters. Its going to be tough to find it, try amazon as they list more general features and info. if a blaster is listed on nerf.com, take it as confirmed. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 18:08, January 2, 2013 (UTC)
n-strike discontinue templatesEdit
"One other thing we have to think about is this: Hasbro no longer lists ANY of the N-Strike products on their web site (not counting the recolored Jolt and Reflex, which they are including in their listings of Elite blasters despite being labeled as N-Strike). Should we interpret that as a sign that they have discontinued all of the N-Strike blasters now?"
actually that is partly false statement, if you do a manual search; you will be able to find the blasters that have not been listed as discontinued-though the longstrike is still there. Hasbro just hasn't switched the home page from N-Strike to N-Strike Elite. ````
Toy Fair questions?Edit
MyLastDart, a Hasbro UK supported blog, is going to the toy fair and is asking for interview questions with Hasbro. Are there any questions that you would like asked? The following are questions that have already been submitted, just checking if there are any that were missed.
1. What is the fate of Dart Tag and N-Force?
2. Will the Dart Tag Snapfire 8 and N-Strike Elite Stockade be released in the US sometime in the near future or are they overseas releases only?
3. WIll there be an Elite Alpha Trooper, LongStrike/Longshot
i was only doing it because i am jealous of your arsenal
u are awesome
it seems to me that this blaster is just the UK name for the Firestrike, though i could be wrong. I have included that as an additional question that i will send to MyLastDart. Please take a look at the forum for an updated list of questions. If there are anymore suggestions, please do add them in the discussion area. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 03:25, January 8, 2013 (UTC)
RE: Vandalism and nuisance edits by unregistered users Edit
just as a back up plan if jet and gage decide to continue to ignore the problem, my wiki is just about ready to go. all that needs to be done are the articles. I have most of the recent ones, no super soakers or very old blasters. currently the wiki is locked to prevent people from messing with it. i can however give admin powers if you wish to work on it if this wiki gets ridiculous. i agree with you that at some point, there are those that just don't need to edit a wiki. especially one that has just about no community. please see the forum topic i have created for further discussions. this was not sent as to advertise, simply a better alternative to use.
link to new wiki: http://dartblasterencyclopedia.wikia.com/wiki/Dart_Blaster_Encyclopedia Nerfmaster8 (talk) 04:02, January 9, 2013 (UTC)
there are only a few that have UK names but rest majority have japan names. either way, we have no image and seeing how dart tag 2011 products were released in canada u nder dart tag 2.0; this seems like a repeat. original nitron discontinued, possible re-release with shield-probably why its called "2.0". US name won't change for the most part and if it is re-released info would just be added to the original article unless its a completely new blaster. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 19:25, January 9, 2013 (UTC)
the following is a list of blasters that have a japan released name. redirect pages have been created already.

As a rollback (or any part of staff), you should do your best to be helpful and kind to everyone. While I know that you and Nerfmaster8 do not get along very well, please try to not get so upset about things. Jet [Talk • Contributions] 03:00, January 22, 2013 (UTC)
okay, the name is verified by the argos image; i saw that. half the current article is assuming and none of that is verified by actual facts. Nerf did make a few changes from rumor to final product-rampage shield. Nerfmaster8 (talk) 01:20, January 21, 2013 (UTC)
i never said that you guys didn't follow any of the blogs,but the way how you guys discuss certain things show that you don't catch up with all info released. you said that you follow all of them, seems like you are a bit behind on info. a lot of info that is missed can be found at the other blogs-official ones.
no one else said anything about NDA breaches other than MLD because they were not bound by one and were not sent warnings over the issue. Now since the blasters have been shown off and the last few days that the official blogs all posted the new info, Hasbro may have been mistaken. MLD never told me what was a breach, he said "yes and no, other legal actions" when i asked on the new blasters. i found it a bit strange that info on both NSE and vortex was released, might have been due to the NDA thing.

Darts in Strongarm Edit
Hmm, in my Strongarm some whistlers have a terrible range and some streamlines actrually WORK fine. I guess there is something wrong with mine then.
Strikefire and Elite darts? Edit
I was directed to you about a question concerning the Strikefire/Crossfire blaster. Do you have one, and if so, can you let us know how well it works with Elite darts? I think it might be relevant to the Strikefire article. Thanks! --King Starscream (talk) 19:25, April 24, 2013 (UTC)
You mentioned that you have nearly every blaster so i assume that you also have the darts as well that the blasters came packaged with. If you have time, could you do a few range tests on them? such as a full range test where the blaster is fired from shoulder height and an accuracy test where a target about average human height is fired at from 5 or 10 feet intervals.
