I think they are ugly, but some people dig the looks for is "Cosplay evil villain looks" and with their most expensive blaster being...
*Selective Fire (semi or full auto, switchable)
*Store replaceable magazines unlike the AS-10 Magstrike which was a major drag!
*Darts with Grooves that possibly can take 9/16ths O rings, (time to make a 9/16th bore Ultra Match).
It could outdo the Magstrike and maybe even...I dare say it...A Rapidstrike!
But it all depends, there are many things to consider.
A new dart system:
Do you really want to switch darts? It was hard enough for me to switch to Stefans, and I am still not quite there for my main battle blasters myself. Since it is full auto, you better have at least 300 darts and 5 magazines to use it as a primary. Also if nobody else is using it, picking up darts in battle is hard and if it is not a common battle platform, could be tough.
How tough are they? For example if the Retaliators were not tough, I could have never gotten a 14 Kg spring in the blaster, or 21 Kg's in a Star Shot may be even a better example. These look a little weak and remember, these are the first Mattel is making, first of anything always has the most problems.
What is the tank on this thing? big? small? solid? could I just plug the overpressure regulator? does it even have one? and where is it, the pump? the tank? Can I get it up to 100 flat in Full auto?
Do you just have to have it?:
Congrats, most people like you end up in rehab or hoarding something dumb like collecting vintage tampons.
Can the clipfire be Ultra Matched to achieve "Magnum Force?:
Possible, all depends on the plunger rod material, plunger head and trigger catch. I like that it can fold and be concealed (My mom just notions to me, "Crap, trouble at Knotts Berry Farm, please not again Chris!")
See You In Disneyland.
