Spynet Secret Sleeve Shooter spotted at Target (Photo)

Thanks a lot to Buffdady for spotting this. According to him, it’s the first time he’s heard of it, and he couldn’t find anything on it on the internet. He says the price for it is $19.99.

We can’t tell if it fires both darts at once, or if it can just do one at a time. It based on a previous wrist blaster design by Spynet, it should be direct push, even though it only gets 20 feet. It should be a fun blaster to use, with some usage for HvZ and assassins.

Campaign to Camarillo 2012: Step 5 – Sorting the Foam (Photo)

IMAG0292
It only took me about 10-15 minutes to sort it all out.

It was Saturday night, and I needed to get my mind off things. So I decided to keep myself occupied and sort the darts. First, every dart that wasn’t a Streamline went into the stripped bag on the right. Then all the W,T, and E Streamlines went into the plastic bag, while all the K & As went into the stripped bag. The ratio of the bad to good Streamlines seemed about 4-1, but in the end I ended up with about 250 darts of the “good” coded ammo. My list of things to do for the game is getting shorter and shorter. Next up I plan on showing everyone my Nerf War/HvZ loadout.

Get a little bit more comfortable with my blaster of choice for this game, the Rayven.
Work on Cardo, at least 3 times a week, for 25-30 minutes each.
Start collecting and counting bad socks.
Learn how to roll them up, if there is a proper technique.
Finishing reading the Art of War.
Get Spectre barrel from other storage site. Test grouping between Recon barrel and Spectre barrels.
Invite, and in some cases convince, friends to go.
Modify or improve Nerf Tac Vest and/or drop pouch loadout.
Sort good darts from bad darts. W & T Streamlines for the win, remember? E Streamlines are ok.
Possibly get different containers for good and bad darts?
Check which 18 dart drum clips rotate well, and which ones don’t.
Get a feel or find a way to track 18 dart clip usage.
(Most likely) buy GoPro Hero 2 camera and SD card to record footage of game.
Buy stronger voltage batteries, battery converter, case, charger, and multimeter from Chinese store (note to self, allow 3 to 4 weeks 3 to 8 weeks (usually 4) for shipping).

Nerf to release Barricade RV-10 Special Edition Transformers Optimus Prime

From wired.com which I got off Nerf’s Facebook wall and Twitter. The link basically says that it’s selling $24.99 at booth #3329 when Comic Con starts. Also after Comic Con you can buy them at hasbrotoyshop.com. The paintjob isn’t bad, and that price for a collectible seems decent.
