Hasbro Nerf Vortex Nitron
Another of Hamleys top toy picks for Christmas 2011, the Nerf Vortex Nitron is a badass blaster that will go down well with little boys everywhere. Aimed at kids aged 8 and up, it cuts a pretty impressive figure in orange, green and grey. If you’re hunting for a gift that packs a powerful punch, look no further.
Hasbro's Nerf Vortex Nitron is a cut above your average master blaster. There’s more to this toy than meets the eye. Its appeal is all down to super cool technological features. Make no mistake; this fully automatic bad boy boasts the very best in Nerf blaster technology. It’s easy to see why the Nitron has been highlighted as one of this year’s hot toys.
The Nerf Vortex shoots long-range foam and plastic core discs designed to go the extra mile without compromising accuracy. The Nitron is the biggest blaster to date and unlike the others from the range, this one is motorised. You’ll need 6 x C-cell batteries for the blaster and 2 x AAAs to power the scope.
If you want a sturdy blaster, this one will fit the bill. Built to stand the test of time, it comes complete with non-detachable front grip and solid built-in stock. The blaster clips are spring-loaded and can accommodate up to 20 rounds. A flywheel system launches the discs, which adds to the playability. Fire it up and let rip!
The scope is electronic and features a number of light modes. Illuminate it partially or fully and track enemies under cover of darkness.
Priced at around £45, it has enough design features and functions to justify the price tag, making it a wish list winner on all fronts. Brilliant fun, Nerf Vortex Nitron is the grand daddy of blasters. Accept no substitute!
