Seen some people shocked at the price, but considering the quality, and the features it seems pretty fair. Glad it includes sound effects.

Just pre-ordered it.  :)  Considering what various pulse rifles sell for. And it actually shoots. I think this is a bargain.

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.

I'll be stripping it down to repaint for sure (and sanding off the raised Nerf logo).

I tried to pay using PayPal and I couldn't connect. So I called no PayPal on pre-order. Credit card.

You can call Hasbro 1-866-278-4264 M - F 8am to 7pm eastern to ask when charges appear.

Yet again Australian fans are screwed over at getting a chance to own a Pulse Rifle.  >:(

Pre-orders are up at Zing.  ;)

This is so cool! A perfect marriage. I've never been tempted by their Star Wars offerings, but this is something special.

I love the Powerloader-inspired design on it.

I take back everything I said. This is awesome!  ;D

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.....!

Already pre-ordered mine. It'll go very nicely alongside my nerf Halo Assault Rifle.  :P
How much is Darkness paying you that you're able to afford this?

Not sure if I can justify this purchase. The "buy once, cry once" mentality is getting out of hand.

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

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.

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

Hasbro Pulse charges when it ships, not when you order it.

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.
