NERF Zombie Strike – Hammer Combat Kit

Friday, September 5th, 2014

20140905-172954.jpg

The NERF Zombie Strike Hammer Combat Kit consists of a NERF Hammer melee weapon and mask.

20140905-173004.jpg

The Hammer features the apocalyptic ‘wear-n-tear’ look as the rest of the Zombie Strike line, such as appearing to having been made from cobbled together materials (bent pipe with wrapped wire grip combined with a brick strike head) and featuring markings and Zombie Strike branding. The mask is a bit more colorful, being made from foam with dual elastic retention bands.

Here’s one of our very own Amigos showing just how menacing this ‘combat kit’ can be. The shirt matching the mask was just a happy coincidence.

The Hammer Combat Kit should be available for sale wherever Z-Strike/Zombie Strike products are sold. We got ours at Target.

NERF Zombie Strike Chainsaw

Friday, August 1st, 2014

20140801-154732.jpg

A new addition to the Zombie Strike line, this chainsaw takes an obvious cue from the Lancer in Gears of War, but it’s pretty badass so we’ll forgive ‘em. Made of NERF’s trademark foam, it functions as a standalone toy chainsaw, all marked up with battle damage and the like. Pressing the green button on either side will produce chainsaw noises, although the left side also functions as the speaker so unfortunately the sound gets a bit muffled when in use. The coolest feature is its compatibility with the NERF tactical rail, so it can be attached to the forend of any compatible NERF blaster.

The Zombie Strike Chainsaw should be available wherever NERF is sold.

Battle Holiday Zombies With The Nerf Zombie Strike Tactical App

Thursday, December 19th, 2013

Williamsburg, Virginia - Hunter Research and Technology is pleased to announce a new Zombie Strike theme for the Nerf Mission App, developed in partnership with Hasbro. Featuring great artwork by UI designers at Manifest Digital, the Zombie Strike theme features a zombie-inspired heads up display, Zombie Strike blaster arsenal, and all new Zombie Strike missions. This update of the Nerf Mission app also include a special long range heads up display for the new Nerf Centurion MEGA blaster.

The Nerf Mission App works with the new Nerf N-Strike Elite Tactical Rail Mount Accessory and turns any rail-equipped Nerf blaster into a full battle cam with heads up display, compass, inclinometer, and rangefinder. The app lets users record photos and videos, track their arsenal, learn about hand signals used to communicate with a squad, and plan out different missions for multiplayer Nerf battles.

The Nerf Mission App is based on the Theodolite Augmented Reality Navigation app developed by Hunter Research and Technology. This game-changing app defined a new standard for augmented reality navigation when it debuted in 2009, and has been a #1 selling navigation app in iTunes stores around the world. Theodolite works as a heads up display with compass, GPS, map, zoom photo/movie camera, rangefinder, tracker, and two-axis inclinometer.

Theodolite is great for outdoor sports, hiking, boating, hunting, golf, sightseeing, photography, and navigation. The app is used in the field every day by surveyors, geologists, architects, engineers, military personnel, competitive sportsmen, and search and rescue workers. And in October, Apple featured Theodolite being used at the Great Wall of China during a special event.

The Nerf Mission App with Zombie Strike theme is available for free from the iTunes App Store, just in time to battle zombies during the holiday season. The app works with most iPhone and iPod touch devices running iOS 6.0 or later. The Nerf N-Strike Elite Tactical Rail Mount Accessory is for ages 8 and up, and sold separately. See Nerf online for more information and a list of retailers.

Theodolite is available on the iTunes App Store for a 50%-off 4-year anniversary sale price of $3.99 USD, and is the perfect holiday gift or purchase for outdoor enthusiasts, professionals, students, teachers, and high-tech gadget lovers (it’s also great for battling zombies). Theodolite runs on any camera-equipped iPhone or iPod touch. Theodolite HD runs on any camera-equipped iPad or iPad Mini. More information, including screenshots, is available on the Hunter Research and Technology website. Media professionals interested in reviewing Theodolite can request a promotional code to download the apps from iTunes at no cost.

Shambles

Saturday, August 17th, 2013

Shambles

Yeah, the market is a bit beyond oversaturated with zombies at the moment, but this game made by Markus “Notch” Persson of Minecraft fame is quite similar to FPS games of old, like Doom and Duke Nukem, and is pretty entertaining, considering it was made in only seven days. Plus, it’s pretty funny that the pistol and rifle were modeled after NERF blasters.

ONE Custom ‘NZCS Tactical Corset’ – Reminder

Friday, April 19th, 2013

Yeah, this has been published before, but apparently the offer is still open, so if you’re in the Portland, OR area and want your very own tactical corset…

download

Because it’s been a slow season, the folks of Niall’s Zombie Control Service have offered to make ‘one’ (see, the all-caps emphasis in the title was totally necessary) custom ‘NZCS Tactical Corset’ for ‘one’ lucky female individual, a piece of kit usually reserved for one of their team members. There are four stipulations to getting the corset, however:

1. You must be custom fitted, this must take place in the Portland Metro Area (Oregon).
2. You will not get the patches that they have on our uniforms.
3. The cost will be $225.
4. It will take up to 2 weeks after the fitting before it is ready.

Interested parties may contact NZCS via private message on their Facebook page.

Saturday, April 6th, 2013

The Z.E.R.O. (Zombie Extermination, Research and Operations) Kit contains practically every tool and accessory you could ever possibly need to combat the zombie menace . It’s admittedly more comprehensive than the offering by TACWRK, with a price to match: $31,375.00 $23,999.00 vs. $11709.50 (€ 8,999.00), but getting this you’d be missing out on a sweet Stihl chainsaw.

Zombie Cologne – For Him And Her

Zombie Cologne

No, Demeter Fragrance Library’s zombie cologne doesn’t smell like the rotting flesh of undead humans. It’s actually stated as smelling like a forest floor (dried leaves, mushrooms, mildew, moss and earth). the ‘for her’ variant offers a scent that’s slightly lighter with a “…a touch of Dregs from the bottom of the wine barrel for that feminine touch.”
