New Water Warriors Spotted!

While this blog is dedicated mainly to Nerf and related subjects, I like to give a nod towards the world of water blasters. First, many make wonderful conversions into great Nerf blasters (Arctic Shock, Water Warriors Pulse Strike, etc). Secondly...they're just fun.

This was spotted at a Walmart in Columbus, OH, in a row full of odds and ends from shelf rearrangement. Looks to be one of the new releases from Buzz Bee this year.

It appears to be similar in specs to the original Colossus, with a meter added for indicating the range you'll get holding the blaster at an angle. A bit of a gimmick, but I'm sure I'd still end up using it, simply because it's there.

 More releases are shown on the back. Notably, Buzz Bee is releasing a motorized blaster. It's not my cup of tea, but I'd wager it works better than the Super Soaker releases as of late.

Even if this doesn't end up being anything of significance, I think I can see the cosplay community loving this angular blaster. Halo Assault Rifle, anyone?
