While I dropped off Wife and the kids for an appointment in Bangsar Village, I found a good parking spot. Good as in "its legal" and I have paid for the ticket. With everything coming to a head for the past two weeks, I was quite stressed out. This was worse than what I faced during the last few months. And so, I think, for the rest of the 25 minutes, I deserved some total distraction and/or relax my mind a little... and what better than to go into Toys R Us. Its been quite some time too...
OK, and so some new Star Wars Lightsabers are in, these are Darth Mauls. Unfortunately, they look like the ones my Brother threw away years ago. Its very clunky, the blades are tubes and well, its *fill in your own blanks here*.
Next are the new NERF toys, which is a more variety of pressurized water guns.
These two, the Microburst and Electrostorm are new. The design looks almost as good as the foam darts version.
Hokay. The Scatterblast. Reminds me of my Tornado Strike which I got last year. Basically, this is a shotgun version for the water pistols.
Here's the Rayven, which costs a lot. It uses thesame technique as the Barricade, which is to usethe motorised flywheels to launch the darts. Theonly thing that's nice is that it is a bullpup design.Your dart magazine goes to the back. I would say this is almost the successor to the Firefly as bothuses glow-in-the-dark darts. But I have ideas tomake them compatible (the darts) for other clips.
The old and the new. On the left is theSecret Strike, which is not hot. On theright is its successor, the Jolt, which ishot. This is because of the way it sendsthe darts out, powerfully, and with just ONE pull of the pump. Price is quitereasonable too. Think of this as the Cricket version from Men in Black.
Nice car but ideas are not coming to me. Yet.
Okay, this is nice and I can use the parts for some kitbashing if I wanted to. I do not, so, I don't want.
