It seems many of you are disliking the small size of the current blasters. However I realized that If you take the bottom and top part of the blaster (ie on the flash flood) and were to lay them end to end they are comporable to the 1000 and 1500. Not to mention their power. Anyway to those of you skeptics buy the flash flood try it out, you'll be impressed. I had lost faith in hasbro but now they've redeemed themselves, at least in my eyes.
