Possibly the most common Xshot blaster I’ve seen in stores is the Micro. It’s easy to find in various dollar stores, as well as the “cheap toy” section of Walmart. It’s small size makes it comparable to a Nerf Jolt. However, newer packaging has increased the range claims to 80ft. Is that much performance possible out of this blaster (with the included darts)? The answer is, surprisingly, yes.
For various reasons including the temperature and a few extra events, we played less games than usual this month. Regardless, I quite enjoyed the games we did play.

This year at Toy Fair, Zuru showed off their entire product line, with much of it in the new blue and white color scheme. The colors, range claims, and shells have all been updated. In the case of the Reflex 6, a slightly larger shell and better internals make for an overall improvement over previous iterations.
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.
