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.

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.
As expected, this time of year is full of new product announcements, spread out among various media outlets, followed by general press releases. Today, Popular Mechanics showed off the newest blasters in the Rival Phantom Corps line. I’ll list the official press releases, and the my thoughts.
