Trademark and Patent Search Update - New Things for 2018!

Apologies for leaving this blog blank. Long hours and lots of wars mean I have to more selectively choose where to upload info. While I've planned on doing things here, at Blasterhub, and on my Youtube channel, life has simply prevented me from uploading as much content as I have. So I decided to go with the option that (currently) has the best outreach, Blasterhub. Also, I still enjoy writing too much compared to doing videos.

Now for the trademarks that have been popping up! I'll list each one, what it's described for at the United States Patent and Trademark Office, and filing date. I'll try to avoid listing things also on this Blasterhub post.

Prime Time Toys

Prime Time, which makes both dart blasters and soakers, of course has plenty of names to claim.

Dart Blasters

  • Tactical Strike (March 8th, already in use as the Powerball name in Canadian Walmarts)
  • Accelerator (July 21st. Confirmed Rival-type blaster)

Water Blasters/Related Items

  • Aqua Flash (April 14th)
  • Hydro Flare (April 14th)
  • Storm Squad (July 21st)
  • Stormer (July 21st)
  • Hydro Rebel (July 21st)
  • Aqua Fusion (July 21st)
  • Aqua Strike (July 21)

Buzz Bee Toys

It looks like we have plenty of names to look forward to. Unknown how many are new blasters, and how many are simply renamed items (for example, Night Assault could just be a Night Tek).

In addition, I found the patent for the Monorail.

At the Hong Kong Patent Office, I found a patent for what amounts to a piston valve/backpressure system, but with water. Look under "Specifications" at the link for the English description and pictures.

Dart Blasters

  • Cyclops (Sept. 8th)
  • Night Assault (Sept. 26th)
  • Covert Squad (Sept. 26th)
  • Caliber (Sept. 27th)
  • Amplifier (Sept. 27th)
  • Berserker (Nov. 12th)
  • Demolisher (Nov. 12th)
  • Mutator (Nov. 16th)

Water Blasters

  • Saturator (July 12th)
  • Fast Splash (July 16th)
  • Outlander (July 19th)

Hasbro

Interestingly, Hasbro officially has the US Design Patent for the Accustrike Dart, as of two weeks ago (filed in October of last year). Should be fun to see what happens to all the copies of the dart already online, as "Accufakes" are very popular for the low cost and consistent accuracy out of modded flywheel blasters.

  1. I think I was a Night assault already at Giant Tiger. It was an 8-shot pump action pistol with a rotating plunger tube and a pop-up, light-up scope.

    1. Any chance you could take a picture? I know the Night Tek fit that description but with six shots, and Buzz Bee renaming it (or adding a couple barrels) wouldn't surprise me.

    2. I was just in Ontario yesterday, and checking Giant Tiger didn't even come to mind because I was on a relatively tight schedule.

  2. I remember there being talk in the past of the Mutator name being used for a Modulus style line. Though that may have been speculation? Some of these names seem familiar.
