As is tradition, Hasbro is releasing blaster-related gear for the next Marvel film. In keeping with tradition, it’s also as bad as almost every other Hasbro movie tie-in. We’ve fallen a long way from the days of Iron Man Magstrikes.
Today’s review focuses on the Iron Man version, but all versions will have similar features.
I learnt two new things today. There is an Australian Toy Fair in Melbourne and the Nerf Modulus Ultimate Customiser Pack includes a Modulus Demolisher. This new blaster pack was actually listed on Hasbro’s Media Release of upcoming 2018 Fall Nerf Blasters. However it was not displayed at the New York Toy Fair. Thanks to Make Test Battle, we can take a look at the new Demolisher!
Despite the ton of new blasters that were shown off at the New York Toy Fair, there were other miscellaneous Nerf products that weren’t listed in the 2018 Fall Product Descriptions Media Release. Thanks to other bloggers and YouTubers, we have some pictures of these items. At this current point in time there are no confirmed titles and pricing for these upcoming products.
The last of our trio of pressurized water blaster reviews focuses on a Buzz Bee Toys-produced blaster. The Power Raider features a large reservoir, separate pressure chamber, and a red dot sight that fits recent Buzz Bee blaster rails. However, there’s a flaw that keeps the Power Raider from achieving greatness, unless you feel like opening it up and correcting it.
The biggest toy event is here once again, which means lots of new blaster reveals from Nerf and other popular toy blaster brands. Just like every other year, Hasbro has put on quite a show, with many welcoming surprises. Some of the items displayed at the Toy Fair, that haven’t previously been revealed include the Elite Deltatrooper, Zombiestrike Ripchain, Modulus Ghost Ops Chronobarrel and etc. Continue reading for official images, pricing and descriptions for the upcoming 2018 Fall Nerf Blasters.
The next pressurized water blaster up for review is the Battle Monster, made by Prime Time Toys and available exclusively at Target. It’s made to operate as a standalone blaster, but can also be powered by a garden hose. More importantly, it does both well.

Before all the secondhand news from Toy Fair kicks in, I thought I’d try to get out some reviews of the newest pressurized water blasters this season. Hasbro is content with piston-type blasters for the Super Soaker line; this leaves smaller competitors the chance to shine with high-performance, budget-friendly blasters. In the case of Zuru, that means the Xshot Pressure Jet.
