Marshmallow Duel Blaster - Double the Fun!

Starting off our examination of Marshmallow Fun Company's product line is the Duel Blaster. The original Marshmallow Blaster fired the large sugary treats 30 feet. This claims to launch TWO of them 35 feet. Let's disassemble this puppy and see what makes it tick! For reference, you could easily hit 100+ ft. ranges when singled for stefans.

Exclusive First Find: Lanard "Huntsman" Branded Blasters! Coming this August!

These were spotted on the updated website for the Meijer supermarket chain in the Midwestern United States. It appears that Hasbro isn't the only company that can re-release blasters in cool new motifs! Score one for Lanard Toys; they seem to be hitting the market with these right as the Nerf Zombie blasters were about to shamble onto store shelves. For example, a rebranded Triple Shot!
More pics after the jump!

Clearance Blasters at Kroger!

Been busy with work and Guncraft (releases July 11th; I've been helping with multiplayer maps). However, I thought I'd provide an update on finding Panthers for cheap. In particular, Panthers with the old style, larger tanks.
Kroger supermarkets usually have some kind of seasonal or toy section, and have had a good selection of Nerf and Buzz Bee blasters this summer (provided you use a Kroger Plus card, otherwise prices are a ripoff). However, some of the smaller selections are on clearance. I've bought Panthers for $4.19, but the motherload was at this store. $1.50 Panthers, plus Elite Triads for $1.75! Keep a lookout for deals like this!
