A slew of new information regarding the Mega Magnus has hit the internet in the past few days, specificlly things I haven’t posted in this site yet. This new information has been gathered here for you all, and it includes a mod guide, internals, a range test, another unboxing, and prices for the countries of Canada, USA, and Singapore. Check the rest of this post for that info.
First off is a mod guide by PSYK on how to modify your Mega Magnus to accept the Nerf clips that are used in Nerf’s clip system. It’s about 52 minutes long, but he pretty much goes over every step and you get to see him work on it.
While doing this, we get a good look at the blaster’s internals.
You can view more internal shots at the SBNC blog. There’s also photos of the trigger assembly and spring size on his site.
Awesomely Nerf got his hands on one as well, and put up a range test below for us to see. He uses a very unorthodox way to measure ranges in the video. To quote his video description on it,
Here’s how I calculate the ranges:
1 Parking Lot = 8 of my shoes
1 Shoe = 30cm
8 shoes = 240cm (2.4m)
1 Lot = 2.4m
2.4m = 7.87402ft
Therefore1 Lot = 7.87402ft
He also included the math, and the range in feet, in his video. When he gets a solid shot off, it seems to get around 60 feet flat. You can watch his video above for more details on this range test.
The last bit of news is that we have prices for 3 different prices for the Magnus depending on what country your in.
Thanks to RandomShadow09. USA Price point is $14.99.
The Singapore price on Toys R Us, which also seems to be the only store selling it there at the moment, is $29.90. When I tried to look up the web listing, it only gives me an error at this point.
Screencap thanks to Southern Brisbane Nerf Club.
And again, the Canada Walmart price is $18.87, so the Magnus should cost around that in Canada depending on what store you get it at over there.
