Proton 2 Pack // K-mart special

Whilst out on this fine launch day I noticed something rather peculiar in my local K-mart. On the shelves were the layout tags for all the upcoming blasters, and while the blasters themselves were still stowed away in the back room awaiting their debut, one of the tags in particular caught my attention. The new Nerf Proton 2 Pack. The little tag said it clear as day, Nerf will be selling Protons in 2’s from now on.

Curious, I went onto the K-mart website and searched for the mysterious 2 pack, and I found it. Apparently Nerf is pushing them as a duel-weilded set, or as a one-on-one set. Either way, the Proton is a great little blaster, and only good can come of it. 🙂

Here’s the product description from the K-mart webpage.

Kimosabi makes a Raider… pistol.

Sometimes Kimosabi hurts my brain. I can’t fathom how he came up with this one, but he’s taken a Raider ~ you know, one of those big 35 dart drum, slam fire, two handed blasters that put a vulcan to shame? ~ and has turned the thing into an SMG style PISTOL. The new mini-raider now has a Deploy fore-grip, and even uses some boy scout bling as a priming handle. It still retains it’s slam fire ability and he states that it can now launch stock foam darts up to 70 feet. Wizard folks, he’s a wizard.
