[Nerf Mod]: Modified Tek Recon Havok With Buzzbee Bigblast Integration

My latest modified blaster- the 4B Havok!This blaster has a first generation tank in it,and a pump replacement. It uses a 13mm coupler so different barrels/clips can be used with this. The stock is still detachable and adjustable.
So why did I choose the Havok? Well, the Havok is one of the most comfortable blasters I have ever played with. It also has a very nice and comfy adjustable stock. Furthermore, there is quite a bit of space in its shell,thus it is a great candidate for reshelling.I'm very happy with how this blaster turned out and I hope you guys like it! Below are some images of the blaster, and above is the video overview.

Review: Nerf N-Strike Slingstrike [Probably better than what you think!]

Once again,Singapore is the first country to receive another new blaster-The Slingstrike.
This blaster is priced at $19.90(SGD) and i bought mine from Isetan. It comes in a proper sealed box,along with an instruction manual and 2 elite darts.

 Straight out of the box,the blaster requires some quick assembling.Attach the handle to the main body of the blaster. Younger children might find this a little difficult;so parents, do take note. After you're done with that,attach the orange piece to the grey circle on the fake bow arms.The picture above shows how the blaster should look like once it's assembled.
How this blaster works is really straight forward. Slide a dart into the dart chamber(or in this case,the dart sits on the dart post). Then,pull back the orange piece at the end of the blaster,and release to fire.
When the orange piece is released, it swings forward and hits the body of the blaster,resulting in a loud 'cluck' sound. Plastic and plastic contact makes me cringe a little. Hopefully this doesn't wear down the blaster's life.


The handle is too small for my liking.So users with larger hands will probably find this an issue too.Also, the plastic at the back of the handle is annoyingly uncomfortable. 
There's quite a bit of tension in the strings, which explains why this blaster shoots well. But elastic bands being elastic bands...they're probably wear down sooner or later.

You can check out my video review,and a demo of this blaster here.
Overall,I am very pleased with this blaster. It performs way better than I expected.Despite not having a trigger,this blaster is still pretty accurate.I only dislike two things about this blaster-how it looks,and the handle.
But still,it's a pretty nice blaster which simulates a sling shot.I'd recommend this to newer Nerfers who would like to get into the Nerf hobby,and as Christmas presents for kids(Christmas is just 11 days away!).

Review: Nerf N-Strike Sharpfire [Nerf Duck Hunt Blaster?]

*If you would like to use any images, please credit my blog 'Awesomely Nerf'*

 The Sharpfire has arrived in Singapore and is retailing at $29.90(SGD). It comes in an open style box,along with 10 darts and an instruction manual.

This blaster is part of the N-strike line,and is more or less and inline jolt.It comes with a stock and barrel,which are both detachable.
To remove the barrel,simply pull it out.
To remove the stock,press the orange button below the handle,and pull it out.It can be held in two different positions.The stock holds a total of 6 darts,and has a clip on it,so that it can be hooked on to belts.It's a little short and slightly wobbly,but still comfortable enough for me. The side of the darts are not covered so they call fall off if something knock into them.

 Loading the blaster is really simple. Pull back the slide to prime the blaster,and load a dart into the dart chamber. Then,close the slide and fire. It works similar to a sliding brass breech.

You can check out my full review on my YouTube channel right here.
But anyway,I really like this blaster a lot.It seem to have more power than my N-Strike Longshot,but still isn't much compared to the Elite blasters. It's accuracy isn't that good either.However, what I like about this blaster is it's tacti-coolness and paint scheme(Looks like the blaster from Dart Hunt!)! Its loading is unique too. I'd only recommend this blaster to those who just want to goof around with their friends,and not to use as a blaster for games.


-Update- After playing with the Flipfire more. I noticed that the barrel can be stored in the stock. Also,when the stock is in the compact mode, the stock acts as a holster and you can hang the  blaster to your pants or belt. Pretty damn cool!

Review: Scorpion Gatling Blaster By Prime Time Toys [Small Gatling Blaster With Great Power ]


This year,Prime Time Toys has come out with a great blaster-the Scorpion Gatling Blaster. This is probably their best blaster they have made so far. The Scorpion Gatling Blaster comes along with an ammo belt,and 20 darts.
Overview and Demo Video
The blaster requires 6AA batteries to function,and is fully automatic.The battery compartment is on the left side of the blaster,and the on/off switch is below it.
Many of you are going  to wonder why so many batteries are required for such a small blaster.Well,for the barrel and flywheels to rotate,and dart pusher to continuously push darts,I'm not surprised.
 The blaster holds darts using this belt pictured above. It holds 20 superdarts(That's the name of the darts) .The ammo belt does not hold Nerf elite darts as they are too long,which results in the blaster jamming.
 One thing I do not like about the ammo belt is that the dart fit is way too loose.This causes darts to fall out with a light shake. Also,there isn't any stopper at the end of each dart chamber,thus darts can be pushed too far back,which will also result in jams.

Loading of the blaster:

Pull back the green button
Flip the grey cover up
Put the chain on to the blaster
The two dummy dart chambers sits in the middle of the blaster

 This blaster is rather small-that's good and bad.The overall size of the blaster is compact,which is great for CQB situations. Furthermore, it is lightweight,and can be stored away easily.
However,the handle of the blaster is too small.Users like myself will find the handle uncomfortable,and difficult to grip on to. Luckily,there is another handle at the top of the blaster to assist your aiming and to give you a better grip of the blaster.

Overall this is a very great blaster. It's one of my favourite blasters of the year,but there is room for improvement(*cough*belt and handle*cough*). Other than that,this blaster is performing way above my expectations. It has a pretty good rate of fire,and is fully automatic.The range on this,for a stock blaster, is great too. Hope this blaster hits Singapore stalls soon!
