Review: Star Wars Jyn Erso Deluxe Blaster

The release of Rogue One brought with it, among other merchandise, a new set of Star Wars Nerf blasters. The Jyn Erso blaster is the most expensive general release one, and the only one of the three that offered any practical potential use. Due to its insanely high retail price, I put off buying it until they were discounted to half price at my local BigW. Is it worth it, even at half price?

Mod: RapidPDW Overhaul


My barrelless RS, the RapidPDW, was my first Rapidstrike rewire, utilising stock motors and some stock switches off a 2S battery. Since then however, I have completed no less than four complete Rapidstrike builds (one of which was not my own), and the RapidPDW was left on my blaster rack collecting dust. I finally got around to giving it a motor upgrade.

I hadn't attended a full Nerf event in months, so I was really excited to get back into action at this month's HvZ.

BlasterTech Parts: Rapidstrike Mag Release, 5kg Elite Spring


I recently ordered a couple of things from BlasterTech (BT). Within that package was a Worker Stryfe mag release, a Hellverine (Hellcat mislabelled as Wolverine), 2 BT Rapidstrike mag releases and a BT Elite 5kg spring. I've covered the Worker mag release and Hellcats before, so this post will be focusing on the RS mag release and the Elite 5kg spring.

Mod: Artifact Motor as a Rapidstrike Pusher


The Artifact motor is the fastest motor created specifically for Nerfing purposes. It is rated to 50k RPM at 7.4V, significantly beyond the next closest of the MTB Wolverine Mk2 or Honey Badger, at around 45k RPM at 7.4V. The Artifact motor is also an odd size, being a little longer than the traditional 130 motor, but significantly shorter than the long 180 motor.

2016 Nerf Roundup

I somehow forgot to make this roundup post at the end of 2016, so here it is, two months late.
2016 was an up-and-down year for Nerf, there were some good releases, and some not-so-good releases. Non-Nerf brands had a fantastic year however, with both Buzz Bee and Dart Zone releasing some real winners.

Loadouts with MTB


MTB recently uploaded another of their loadouts vids, this time featuring my Bullpup RS (and associated other parts), as well as my Rhino-Fire. It covers all the major points and is of course a far higher quality video than anything I'd make myself.

If you're wondering about the lack of activity recently, no I'm not leaving the hobby or anything so major. It's simply a matter of not having the time to produce content, and not having any real content to actually produce. I won't be doing anything Nerf related for the next month or so, but I will be returning in time for the March Melbourne events, and hopefully by then I'll have more content to put up.

As a final note, for anyone who has posted a comment in the past ~2 months, my apologies for not approving the majority of them, a change in the Blogger UI meant that I actually don't immediately see the number of comments awaiting approval, and I only just now remembered to check them.
