If you can’t beat ‘em, outlast ‘em?
Seems like those at UrbanTaggers found info on more upcoming 2013 Nerf Super Soaker products including the Nerf Super Soaker Flash Blast and the “Domination” drum (the water drum from the Nerf Super Soaker Lightningstorm), but sold separately. The Flash Blast appears to be a top-pumped spring-loaded pistol-sized water blaster.

Some ideas seem good in theory, but fail in practice…
Placeholder pages created for a number of upcoming items from Hasbro Inc. including:
As additional information becomes known about these items, these pages will be updated accordingly.

As of this posting (~2pm EST), WaterWar.net appears to be down. Not sure what’s going on; I’ve contacted the host and am awaiting their reply. Seems like the server that hosts WaterWar.net along with some other sites is down at the moment. I’ve submitted a support ticket and sent a request using their online form, but unfortunately their online chat support is not available at the moment, thus this downtime may be a little longer than usual. Hopefully, things will be back on soon. Will update this as I get more info/insight into the problem.
Sidenote: this outage also takes down iSoaker.net as well as a few other sites I have colocalized on that server. This is one reason I keep iSoaker.com on a separate server though it costs me a little more in hosting fees.
Update: ~3pm EST, WaterWar.net appears accessible again.
This is final part in our series of articles taking a deeper look at the blaster statistics available in the iSoaker.com database. Read up on Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, and Part 4 if you haven’t done so already to get more background on the insights presented below. In this final part, we’ll take a look at changes to stock water blasters over time. While the oldest known water gun is currently pegged at 1896, the oldest item in the iSoaker.com Database is the Cosmic Liquidator (~1977). Beyond that, we only have a sampling of water blasters available in the 1980s-1990, thus to stick to where we have the most information, our exploration will look only at water blasters made after 1990.
