I don’t know what the target market for the Nerf Rival Zeus MXV-1200 Blaster is, or whether little kids even play with Nerf guns anymore. But I do know this: I kind of want one. That’s because the MXV-1200 can fire its soft foam rounds at what Nerf claims is a top velocity of 100 feet per second!
Another thing I don’t know is the effect a small foam round fired at 100 fps would have on, say, the family dog, but I’m assuming that even at a high velocity we’re not talking about stopping power here. It’s still pretty impressive, though, and the Nerf Rival Zeus MXV-1200 Blaster also has a rapid fire function for letting loose all 12 of the included magazine’s rounds at once.
The Nerf Rival Zeus MXV-1200 Blaster must be a pretty popular item, too, since $50 pre-orders have sold out at the Toys-R-Us website here. But hopefully they’ll be taking more soon, so keep your eyes peeled.
