Reminder: NERF Rival Apollo XV-700 Star Wars Mandalorian Edition Blaster And Face Mask

Friday, August 25th, 2017

I’m not the biggest fan of store exclusive variants, but GameStop is currently offering a pre-order for a NERF Rival Apollo XV-700 Blaster with an exclusive Mandalorian paint job, and a matching mask.

The NERF Rival line consists of various unique blasters that fire foam spheres rather than darts, and feed from translucent magazines. The Rival in the name comes from the fact that the blasters in the series are generally available in either solid blue or red colors, signifying opposite teams. While I would have liked to see a more Mandalorian-inspired face mask, all the same, this is a cool release if you’re into NERF and Star Wars.

The release date for the Mandalorian Apollo XV-700 w/ Face Mask is November 17th of this year, coinciding with the release of ‘Star Wars: Battlefront 2’.

You can pre-order the blaster at www.gamestop.com/collectibles/toys/nerf-rival-apollo-xv-700-star-wars-mandalorian-edition-blaster-and-face-mask-only-at-gamestop/147524.

Everyone’s Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Character (Sucks at His Job)

Everyone’s Favorite ‘Star Wars’ Character (Sucks at His Job) — powered by Cracked.com

This video from Cracked.com, my second-favorite internet time-sink only behind tvtropes, explains exactly why Boba Fett is honestly the worst bounty hunter in the galaxy. While I’m a huge proponent of the Fett, it’s hard to argue against anything pointed out in this video, at least in the films; the Expanded Universe does some amazing things for Boba. Having said that, it’s still the EU, and therefore is completely invalid in any serious Star Wars argument by property of essentially being one ginormous grouping of fan fiction, no matter how ‘canon’ it all is.

Boba Fett Rocket Backpack

Sunday, March 6th, 2011

Child or man, everyone needs a backpack for something. Why not make it a Boba Fett rocket pack? Modeled after the jet pack/rocket launcher of the galaxy’s most feared bounty hunter, this plush backpack has one main pocket, a secondary pocket, and two zippered jet tubes. You can hold anything from important papers to disintegration devices, and look awesome while doing it.
