Accustrike arrived

Accustrike darts and blasters arrived at Argos and on their eBay sales account.

Anybody taken the dive yet?
Never going to be a viable dart option by price, but it is an interesting concept.

I want the Alphahawk.. So bad.. Want to cut it that is. Want that stock and the barrel but Nerf budget is thoroughly spent this month..  Though I do know someone with a staff discount..
Northwind

Yeah, I really want to wedge something clipfed into the shell. I guess I'll pick up a used or discounted one at some point.

Ugh.
I have a £10 argos voucher and it is still to expensive for what it is.

So annoying
UK Foam

Has anyone picked one up yet?

Probably a better idea to use use the voucher for a pack of the darts, as realistically they're the only thing new about the line. I mean okay there's a lot more plastic used in the body of the AlphaHawk, but there is no way that justifies a £35 price tag.

£18 for a single-shot breech-loading pistol? Crikey.

I saw that, looked at the pictures, realised that the "clip" is not a clip at all but a glorified dart holder.

Hasbro does appear to be actively and aggressively taking the piss with this one.

Yes, because paying £35 for something that is essentially a bolt-action Hammershot/Strongarm hybrid with a stock and barrel seems like a completely reasonable price point*.

Maybe I'd be more interested in the series if they did a sniper rifle of some sort, and DRASTICALLY REDUCED THE PRICE TAG, but opening your new series with guns like this? Cmon.








*And I ain't hatin' on the Hammershot or the Strongarm, they both be amazing, matey. But this gun does both of em' an injustice... arrr.
Broz

Since we're ranting about price... Have you seen the Incisor? I felt reamed just reading the sticker...

'tis Christmas and the time for emptying parents wallets and racking up consumer debt.

Wait a few weeks for normality to return/the sales to start.

Well done Just A Jolt!

Review now been updated...

To be honest, for the price of an Alphahawk and a pack of Accustrike darts, you're not too far off affording a Rival blaster and HIRs.

The fact that worn Koosh darts and Elites perform so inconsistently in the Alphahawk would be  deal breaker for me...

For me it's like the Centurion in terms of, "I like the appearance, now how can I gut the shell and get some better internals in there..."

Amen to that, brother. Amen to that.

The Falcon Fire is awful out of the box and at £18 one to avoid, on the plus side though love the shell and feel of it in the hand. Managed to pop and upgrade spring in it and it shoots not bad now and I think I'll keep it to paint up and just have as a prop blaster more than anything, it will also come in handy for the "One in the Chamber" HvZ rounds we do at FDT since it only holds "one in the chamber" Very Happy
