It’s that time of year again! Time to prepare for the next anniversary release from Nerf. Last year we were told to “Clear the way!” for the 09/10/’10 release of the Stampede ECS 50 blaster. The clear the way series took come of our favorite blasters and stripped them down, showing off their innards for all the world to see. This year Nerf is asking us to “Gear Up!” for the unleashing of the Vortex series of disk launchers on 09/10/’11.
Thanks to our friends at Nerf we have the opportunity to give you a preview of three of the repainted blasters from this limited edition series.
