Finally Nerf has released information and pictures on the Light it Up Series Blasters! The Rayven CS-18 and the Lumitron use ‘Firefly Technology’ (glow-in-the-dark ammo) to Light Up your battles! Instead of a built-in flashbulb ‘light charger’ like the original Firefly Blaster, these blasters use special clips with tiny LEDs in them to charge the dart/disc just before firing.
These blasters are supposed to be out on 3-3-12, but if you’re lucky, you may be able to already find the Rayven on shelves (no word about the Lumitron). While the Lumitron is just a recolored Praxis (with a special clip), the Rayven is something special. I already managed to get my hands on one, and I won’t go in to too much detail (I’ll leave the detailed review to Mr. S), I must say that it’s akin to the Barricade in propulsion method. But unlike the Barricade, the Rayven seems to have more punch and is also a little bit quieter than the Barricade.
Overall, I believe these spiritual successors to the Firefly are a great start to 2012!
UPDATE: It appears as though I was wrong when I said the Rayven and the Lumitron would be out in March. Nerf said on their facebook page today that the Rayven is supposed to come out January.
