Obscenely Oversized Off-brand Update!

Ok guys, thanks to various website updates, in-store sightings, and a bit of research, I'm making a large post covering air and water blasters that will be making their appearance this year.

Swimways is a relatively widespread brand with products like the Toypedo and various other pool items. Now they have several water blasters - many of which appear to use old blaster molds. However, they appear to have either pinch triggers, or some sort of alternative valve mechanism (for the pressurized blasters). The following were spotted at Target!

A shell similar to that of the Super Soaker CPS 2100.

A close copy of the Water Warriors Xenon.

A copy of the Water Warriors Argon.

Reshells of one of the original Water Warriors Kwik Grips XL.

I don't have a picture, but there was also a piston blaster virtually identical to the Water Warriors Avenger.

Zuru Xshot

Please note that Xshot blasters come in many color schemes! I'll just highlight a few significant products.

Xshot Micro/Mini Dart Blaster, Girl Edition
  • Smallest blaster on the market (bar the Tek 3), but with great performance.
