    I haven't found NERF's motors to be that obnoxiously loud - I've had their belt-fed auto gun and their bipod-mounted auto gun and I could picture the SFX being louder.


    I had the belt fed bipod one too years ago, that's just automatic fire but I'm pretty sure this one spins a pair of wheels to accelerate the darts and those ones put out a high pitched whine that's quite loud and often causes dogs to panic.

    This looks so freaking cool!

    I love the box art, and I actually really love the power loader-inspired paint scheme too. It's a great way of having a non-gun look while still being Aliens-inspired. Now I'm kinda hoping we get similar decals in Fireteam Elite as well!

    That said though, it is pretty expensive. It looks like it'd be worth it given all the features and stuff, but I'm not sure I can justify getting it. I'd love to, but....probably not going to.

    Probably.

    Gonna pre order this does anyone know if they take the money out straight away or not?
    Hasbro Pulse charges when it ships, not when you order it.

    Since it's got an electric motor to aid firing, I should direct people to the likelihood that it will be as loud or louder than any sound effects and require an extra button/trigger (I think I spy it under the primary trigger). I think it might end up being fairly disappointing to use, but personally I'm more interested in repainting it and putting it up on a wall.

    I'm sure you can swap the motors out with after market mods. The nerf community is MASSIVE, there's likely to be a mod ready at , or shortly after launch.

    I'm considering getting pre-order in to split open and learn the mechanics a little more
    The nerf community is apparently already looking at ways to mod it and install more powerful motors and flywheels and whatever.



    The button under the primary trigger might be a button to spin up the motors, I've seen other "motorized" nerf guns that have a separate button for that.

    ... at least, loud enough for the person using it to hear, maybe not anyone else.

    I love this so much, I love that it makes sounds, I hope it's loud.

    It's so far away...., It's going to be on my mind for a year now.

    I have wanted my own Pulse Rifle for so long so whats one more year.....!

    Same, good luck getting anything resembling an accurate gun to Aus.

    I do like that they at least kept the colouring relevant to the film by using the Powerloader's scheme.

    Hopefully NECA does not for much longer then.

    Neca and Rubies just joined forces for Star Wars collectables and they'll be taking over remaining orders Anovos filled. So I don't think they're out of Disney's sights yet given they're the ones who've been doing Alien and Predator merch.

    What I think is about to happen here is that the Black series helmets had been testing the waters for bigger collectables. So Hasbro will do things like the nerf guns and your various toylines. Neca will be along with Rubies doing the collectables like props and helmets. So that might explain the rumors of Neca losing the license, they're getting contracts redone to fit this new role. They might still work on Alien and Predator stuff but in a capacity where we see them do something like a motion tracker prop or wrist gauntlet whereas Hasbro might be in charge of doing the figures for say the Alien TV show or Predator 5.

    To those who are in countries it's not offered: Do you not use proxy companies because it's so expensive to ship to your location?

    I've been using proxys to buy from japan for almost a decade.

    Separate from that---looks so good, I bought 2 (1 to repaint).
