Higher Quality Images of 2016 Blasters from Buzz Bee

Better Pictures, Official Details, and More

If you've been following our coverage from Toy Fair 2016, you may already be aware that we declared the Buzz Bee section of the Alex Brands booth to be among the very best of the show for blaster lovers. Sure, Hasbro's Nerf brand was as dominant as ever (actually even more so this year), but Mattel's BOOMco showing was surprisingly lackluster. That left a window of opportunity for our resourceful friends at Buzz Bee to grab their share of the limelight and introduce a slew of new...MORE products. Now, for the first time, we have higher-quality imagery and full product details for each new blaster at the show. The actual quality and type of imagery we were able to obtain are somewhat inconsistent, but that's only because Buzz Bee themselves are still working on finalizing everything. So we thank them for allowing us to share their progress!

First up is the Buzz Bee's exclusive line of blasters based on The Walking Dead comic series, which we first announced back in December of last year. At the time, the partnership was still very new, and no product images were available. But we finally got to see the new products at Toy Fair, and now have better quality (if still pre-production) images to go along with that report.

In addition, we now have better quality images of the other new Buzz Bee blasters we're excited about, including the new, air-powered Ultra-Tek Destiny! This fantastic blaster uses harmonica-style clips (that are very likely Nerf-compatible), and fires at a rate of 20 darts in 2 seconds with 6 or 8 pumps of the priming handle. The prototype at Toy Fair was lots of fun, so we can't wait for the production model to hit store shelves early this fall. In the meantime, here are all the details and photos for the new models, straight from Buzz Bee--click on the link under each photo for the higher-res version!
