Nerf’s Pulse Rifle is unquestionably cool. That the show works, and that it has superior sounds and two varieties of ammo, completely made me really feel like a Colonial Marine, even for a brief period of time.

However at nearly $100, this isn’t actually a toy you’re going to run round and play with. It’s a show piece. A infrequently factor. And for that, I feel it’s much less profitable. It ought to include some form of straightforward show stand. And C batteries? That’s very, very annoying. Why not AA or AAA? One thing folks have round the home.

However the worst half is—there’s no energy button (that no less than I may discover). So if you’re achieved, the show simply stays on, like above. It’s a must to take the batteries out to get it to go off. Which implies each time you need to play with it, it’s essential seize the screwdriver and batteries. Very annoying.

Nonetheless, for these three seconds of glory, it’s nearly price it.
