K'Nex Enters the Blaster Market!

Earlier this year, a leak from a Nerf Powerpoint presentation in Asia gave us a peek at Modulus, a potential blaster or series involving the assembly of your blaster from different components and accessories. But what if you want to build your entire blaster from scratch? Seems K'Nex has what you're looking for!


In the December issue of ToyNews, it is revealed that among other new lines, K'Nex will soon sell K-FORCE Build & Blast foam dart blasters, with the first products on display January 2015 at the London Toy Fair.

Quoting a spokesman from the company:
“We are so proud of the work that has gone into developing this line. From our research we know that our fans are already hugely interested in utilising K’NEX for this kind of play.

“This coupled with K’NEX’s open-ended creativity will open the door for kids to a world of customisable blasters that previously they could only dream of. This collection adds something completely different for fans of construction as well as those who love blasters – both will enjoy designing and building their own blaster as well as the fun of target practice, and, when they’re finished, it can be taken apart and rebuilt or customised in a new way.”
Given the nature of K'Nex, I wonder about the durability of these blasters. Will rough use snap your blaster into pieces? Then again, it IS K'Nex, so you could just snap it back together...

We'll see next month what exactly is in store. Start the speculating!

  1. Knex has actually been used to build guns for a long time. That's probably why they moved in this direction. Durability shouldn't be a problem if the guns are built right. Youtube search "Knex war" or look at KILLERK's channel to see what the usual guns look like and how they shoot.
