What’s up Nation? Yesterday I published a video promising you an armory video (a few of you have been asking for one), and today I deliver! My Nerf collection is certainly smaller than some others, but it’s organized! :] I may be getting something else soon; if I do I’m sure you’ll find out, and if the armory changes a great deal I’ll make an update video. Hope you like it!
So my soon-to-be-favorite-blaster-of-all-freakin’-time hit shelves today. The Pyragon was publicly launched this morning with the Nerf N-Strike Elite line, and well, here are some pictures of this massive white whale of a blaster! 😀
Up until recently people have been wondering if the 40-round Vortex drum was designed specifically for the Pyragon, or if it’s a universal Vortex clip. Welp, the box says it’s universal. That means that if you feel like switching things up for a battle, or if you’re in a war with a no-rapid-fire rule, you can still use this massive clip in either the Nitron or Praxis. Nice move Nerf.
A few mysterious shots of the box art have popped up before, but they were unconfirmed until now. Nerf has officially released the Sonic Praxis, and it’s on store shelves right now (I’m assuming). Here’s a shot of the new blaster when fully assembled, and equipped with a Lumitron magazine.
I’m not tottally convinced on the color, but the inner glowing effect does look nice. I’m sure it would be a blast to run around with it at night and pretend you’re firing radioactive ammunition at your friends. 🙂
Blaster internals are identical to the original Nerf Vortex Praxis. The blaster uses a shotgun pump priming system and a torsion spring to launch disc-style ammunition up to an advertised 60 feet (though wind can make them go further). The blaster also sports a tactical rail, bandolier attachment points, and a symmetrical clip release system. Upon purchase, the box includes a stock and one 10 round vortex clip.
Here it is! Man I’ve been waiting for this thing for months, and am still saving specifically for THIS blaster. The Vortex Pyragon!

This blaster is essentially a Praxis combined with a Raider. Keep in mind that this blaster now has the second highest ammo storage of ANY nerf blaster (unless you load down something with a few raider drums). I can’t wait to get my hands on one of these! 😀
The Nerf Vortex Pyragon is scheduled to release sometime in August of 2012, and will retail for $39.99.
