Review: BOOM.CO Twisted Spinner

Twisted Spinner (15)

Português

À uns tempos atrás, a Mattel anunciou que ia comercializar uma nova linha de lançadores, BOOM.CO . Após entrar em contacto com a Mattel Portugal para obter mais informações, a sua Relações Públicas decidiu enviar-me algumas amostras dos seus produtos. Na embalagem de amostras, recebi uma Twisted Spinner.

Na caixa da Twisted Spinner, vem o lançador, 8 dardos, um alvo, um escudo e um manual de instruções.

Twisted Spinner (2)

A Twisted Spinner tem um tambor giratório com capacidade para 8 dardos. Também tem um rail para montar o escudo incluído.

Twisted Spinner (21)

Twisted Spinner (5)

Como podemos ver na foto apresentada abaixo, a Twisted Spinner não tem um gatilho. Apesar disso, é fácil de manobrar e disparar.

Twisted Spinner (20)

Para operar a Twisted Spinner basta puxar a alavanca para trás e para a frente continuamente.

Twisted Spinner (17)

Twisted Spinner (19)

Para carregar a Twisted Spinner basta inserir os dardos no tambor giratório.

Montagem

A Twisted Spinner tem um visual agressivo, com um toque de ficção científica. Tem uma boa capacidade de dardos (8) e é confortável. Infelizmente, não tem nenhum sítio onde possamos inserir uma cinto tático para transporte e também não funciona com dardos de outras marcas, o que pode ser uma desvantagem, quando nos encontramos no campo de batalha.

A caixa diz que a Twisted Spinner dispara até 21 metros, e penso que quando a disparamos paralelamente ão chão, conseguiremos atingir no máximo 17 metros, o que é muito bom. Se dispararmos com um ângulo, atingimos os 21 metros referidos na caixa.

Os dardos colam ao alvo através da tecnologia Smart Stick. Ao dispararmos a Twisted Spinner numa batalha, se os dardos ficarem sujos podemos sempre lavá-los como é recomendado na caixa e eles ficam limpos e lives de poeiras.

Penso que o preço (26,99 euros no Toys R Us)  seja adequado ao conteúdo e recomendo que experimentem a Twisted Spinner.

While back, Mattel announced that they were going to sell a new line of blasters, BOOM.CO . After getting in contact with Mattel Portugal to get more information of when the blasters would get to Portugal, their Public Relations was kind enough to send me some samples of their blasters. In the package, I recieved a Twisted Spinner.

In the box of the Twisted Spinner, we get the blaster it self, 8 darts, a target, a shield and an instructions manual.

Twisted Spinner (2)

The Twisted Spinner has a 8 dart capacity rotating barrel. It also has a rail to mount the included shield.

Twisted Spinner (21)

Twisted Spinner (5)

As we can see in the photo bellow, the Twisted Spinner doesn´t has a trigger. Despite that, it´s easy to fire and maneuver.

Twisted Spinner (20)

To operate the Twisted Spinner we just pull the handle back and forward repeatedly.

Twisted Spinner (17)

Twisted Spinner (19)

To load the Twisted Spinner, just insert the darts in the rotating barrel.

Montagem

The Twisted Spinner has an agressive look, with a sci-fi touch. It also has a good 8 dart capacity and it is comfortable. Unfortunately, it doesn´t have a sling adaptor to carry the blaster and it doesn´t shoot darts from other brands, which can be a disadvantage, when we are in the battle field.

The box clames ranges of 21 meters, which I think is true, when we fire at an angle, but it only shoots about 17 meters flat.

The darts stick to the Targets thru the Smart Stick technology. If the darts get full of dirt when we are shooting them in a battle, we can always wash them like it says in the box. After washing them, they will get clean.

I believe the price (26,99 euros at Toys R Us) is appropriate to the content and I recommend the Twisted Spinner.

Introdução: Nerf Elite Rhino-Fire / Introduction: Nerf Elite Rhino-Fire

Português

À uns meses atràs, o Ash do blog MyLastDart ouviu uns rumores sobre um Nerf Rhino. Mas nada foi confirmado.

Hoje, foi descoberta a Rhino-Fire no Amazon espanhol, aqui.

Nerf Rhino-Fire 1

 

Estão a pensar: será que esta é a sucessora da Vulcan?

É capaz. Ainda não tem descrição e ainda não pode ser comprada. Parece que trás 2 drums de 25 dardos cada, e 50 dardos. São precisas pilhas mas ainda não sabemos de que tipo ou o tamanho, provavelmente do tipo C ou D.

Eu acho que esta Nerf faz parte da linha “Elite XD” e dispara até 90 ft. Tem 2 “canos” e é parecida com a Pulsator de antigamente. Também tem um tripé, por isso penso que seja uma Nerf para ficar num sítio fixo. Dispara 2 dardos de uma vez e é provavelmente uma Nerf com flywheel.

Mas não é tudo bom: o preço é de cerca de95 euros, cerca de 130 dólares.

Eu gosto, mas o preço….

Aqui estão mais umas fotografias.

A few months ago, Ash from MyLastDart´s blog heard some rumors about a Rhino blaster. But nothing was confirmed.

Today, the Rhino-Fire was found in the Spanish Amazon, here.

Nerf Rhino-Fire 1

Are you thinking: is this the Vulcan successor?

Maybe. It doesn´t has a description yet and it still can´t be bought. Looks like it comes with 2 25 dart drums each, and 50 darts. You will need batteries, but we still don´t know how many or the type, but it will probably be type C or D.

I believe this blaster is part of the line “Elite XD” and shoots up to 90 ft. It has two barrels and looks like the old Pulsator.  Also has a tripod, so it´s more of a stationary blaster. Shots 2 darts at once and it´s probably a flywheel blaster.

But not all is good: the price is around 95 euros, around 130 dollars.

I like it, but the price……….

Here you have more pictures.

SNIPE: Shooting your tablet?

Capturar

Português

Primeiro de tudo, gostaria de dizer que sim, vai ser possível disparar contra o nosso tablet. small_logo_xntouch

À uns meses atrás, uma empresa Israelita, XnTouch, anunciou que estava a desenvolver uma aplicação para tablet, bem como uns dardos especiais, destinados a serem disparados contra um tablet.

E então, foi criada a SNIPE.

SNIPE_logo

  • O que é a SNIPE?

A ideia por detrás da SNIPE é podermos levar a experiência de tiro ao alvo com dardos de espuma a outro nível. Utilizando dardos feitos de uma forma inovadora, vamos poder utilizar um tablet comum como alvo. A SNIPE é a combinação perfeita de entre elementos físicos e digitais do tiro com dardos de espuma.

  • Os Dardos

Os dardos são feitos de materiais condutores da eletricidade, com pontas inovadoras, com design em epiral, compatíveis com a maior parte dos lançadores já disponíveis e com patente em espera. Estes dardos vão permitir disparar contra o nosso tablet sem o danificar, visto que só produzem uma força de impacto de cerca de 8 gramas e um ecrã de um tablet está preparado para sofrer forças até 14 gramas.

SNIPE_dart_tech

  • A App

Atualmente, não existem aplicações de tablet que permita a utilização deste dardos de última geração, por isso, a SNIPE também criou uma. Um dos vários cenários, é disparar contra uma pirâmide de latas, evitando acertar em latas de TNT. Neste e nos outros cenários, a SNIPE inclui efeitos especiais, gráficos reais, e aspectos inovadores em cada um deles.

  • The Gear

Uma das coisa que a SNIPE também criou são os seus próprios lançadores de dardos, bem como suportes para o tablet.

First of all, I would like to say that, it will be possible to shoot your tablet.small_logo_xntouch

Some months ago, an Israeli company, XnTouch, announced they were developing special darts, meant to be fired to a tablet, as well as a tablet app.

And so, SNIPE was born.

SNIPE_logo

-What is SNIPE?

The story behind SNIPE is to take the target shooting experience to a whole new level. Using innovative darts, we wil be able to shoot a tablet. SNIPE is the perfect combination between phisical and digital elements of shooting foam darts.

-The Darts

The darts are made of electricity conductive materials, with innovative tips, spiral body design, compatible with most blasters and with Patent Pending. This dart will be able to be shooted to tablets without damaging the screen, bacause their impact force is only 8 grams and tablets are mean´t to be used with forces of 14 grams.

SNIPE_dart_tech

-The App

Up till now, there is not tablet app that allow this last generation darts to be used, so SNIPE, also created one. One of the different apps, is shooting against a pyramid of cans, without hitting the TNT cans. In all scenarios, SNIPE includes special effects, real grafics, and many innovative aspects in each one of them.

Produtos da Nerf antigos apararecem no Toys R Us? / Old Nerf products show up in Toys R Us?

Português

À alguns dias atrás paercebi-mne que alguns produtos “antigos” apareceram nno Toys R Us. Como devem saber, a Longshot ainda é vendida em Portugal. Fui ao Website do Toys R Us ontem e vi que a Longshot estava classificada como produto NOVO. Podem ver no Print Screen que tirei.

Longshot

Procurei um pouco mais e o pack de 36 dardos streamline também apareceu no website Eu sabia que eles eram vendidos nas lojas – por eles apareceram na altura do Natal – mas não sabia que eram vendidos online).

Dardos

Para além disso, fui ao Toys R Us à cerca de duas semana atrás, e vi 10 Magstrikes ainda na caixa à venda, o que é estranho porque nunca foram vendidas aqui. Mas não tenho fotografia.
Será que o Toys R us vai vender Nerfs “antigas” em vez das Nerfs novas? Esperemos que não!


English

Some days ago, I realize that some old Nerf products were showing up in Toys R Us in Portugal. As you might know the Longshot is still sold in Portugal. I went to Toys R Us website yesterday and I found that the Longshot (2006) was classified as a new product. You can see the Print Screen that I took.

Longshot

I looked a little more and the 36 streamline dart pack (2006) showed up in the website to (I knew they were sold in stores – because they showed up around Christmas – but I didn´t knew they were sold online too).

Dardos

Besides that, I went Toys R Us a couple weeks ago, and I saw 10 BNIB Magstrikes for sale, which is weard because they were never sold in here. No pic though.
Is Toys R Us going to sell old blasters instead of new blasters? Lets hope not!

Nerf Magnus mas não Centurion? / Nerf Magnus but no Centurion?

VS

Português

Como sabemos, a Nerf lançou no ano passado, a Nerf Mega Centurion, o que não foi um grande sucesso. Tirando a comunidade Xplorer que gosta da Centurion, pois criou um kit que faz com que dispare loucamente longe, quase ninguém a quer comprar. Talvez seja por causa do preço, talvez seja por causa da incompatibilidade com os dardos de tamanho normal, talvez seja pelo seu tamanho ou talvez mesmo pelas suas “distâncias” serem não muito boas.A loja Blasterparts criou um kit que converte a Centurion de dardos Mega para dardos “normais”, o que eu acho uma boa ideia.

Penso que todos estes fatores adiaram o lançamento da série Mega em vários países. Em Portugal, a Centurion nunca chegou a ser vendida até agora, e penso que vai continuar assim. Podemos dizer que o lançamento da Mega Magnus foi um sucesso. Penso que todas as pessoas que a compararam à Centurion, disseram que a Magnus era muito melhor.

Agora que a Magnus chegou a Portugal, penso que vou ter a oportunidade de a experimentar e ver se a série Mega vale a pena.


English

As we know, last year Nerf launched, the Nerf Mega Centurion, which wasn´t a great success. Besides Xplorer that like the Centurion, because they created a kit that makes the Centurion shoot like crazy, almost nobody want to buy it. Maybe it´s because the price, maybe it´s because you can´t shoot it with normal size darts, maybe it´s because of it´s size or maybe it´s because of it´s ranges aren´t so good. Blasterparts store created a kit that converts the Centurion from firing Mega darts to fire normal size darts, which I think it´s a good idea.

I believe this is why Nerf has delayed the Mega series lauch in other countries. In Portugal, the Centurion was never sold ,and I believe that it is going to stay that way. We can say the Mega Magnus lauch was a success. I believe that al persons that compared the Magnus to the Centurion, said the Magnus was best.

Now the Magnus arrived to Portugal, I belive that I am going to have the opportunity to try it and see if the Mega series it´s worth it.

Uma coisa que achei interessante, é que na descrição da Magnus diz que esta vai disparar até 25 m, o que não é o mesmo que diz na caixa.

Vão comprar alguma?
