I knew you were joking. After all those years of takign everything seriously has taught me a lesson in what's humor and what's not. I just decided to add my own little commentary for the joke.

(I'm not being serious)

One word: HACKER. Sneak into the computers at the Super Soaker division of Hasbro, find out next year's lineup...

Okay. That's real plausible, Trekkie. First class. :suspicious:

At least you're joking. :(

Geez guys. You treat Hasbro like its some sort of Satanic cult. It was under Hasbro's supervision that Larami created some of the best guns. The CPS 1200, Max-D 6000, CPS 1700, the Monsters...
They're not the Antichrist, people.

I think it's time for a little pre-view of next year's line-up;

Gremlin--piston action addition to Wasp
Crossfire--piston action, rotating nozzles
5th dimension--4 piston action guns that can be assembled into a larger "5th unit"
Stinger--Air pressure addition to Hornet and Cricket addition of belt clip device
Black Widow-- Returns in new colors
Firefly & Yellow Jacket -- Return in new colors
Lightning & Piranha -- New Colors and added carry strap
Blazer-- Returns in new colors with longer strap, and bigger nozzles
Aqua-Pak-- 200oz capacity back pack canon

Aqua Master Pre-Charge System (TV advertised)
Argon- mechanical pressure gauge with pre-charge system
Xenon- electronic pressure gauge with pre-charge system
Krypton- electronic pressure gauge with pre-charge system

Pre-charge system is new system, press button on side of gun and pump (17-20 times until button pops out) and gun is pressurized until you release the pressure. Add water, pump 3 times for maximum pressure and blast. We think it is pretty cool system.

Dang, that Aqua Pak sounds awesome! What're the nozzles on that thing like? Also, the pre-charge system...you pressurize it before you even fill the tank?

Am I lookin' forward to next year!

Double post, I know... I just had a strange thought. Is the backpack just an addition to the regular guns? Or is it a backpack with a gun?

Interesting, sadly the only thing I'd think I'd buy would be the AquaPak (I'm poor and need a new backpack). What are the planned prices for these items? Also, some real info about the larger nozzles I'd like to see, when I read "and bigger nozzles" it makes me wonder how much larger. And if it will still have a small nozzle for conservation. Another thing, will the AP have a more straps the balance the weight? I don't want to be busting my back.

Also, if you need someone for those commercials, I'd do it for free. :D

Since Big Bee said earlier that the 2004 ceiling price for soakers was $19.99, the price for the AquaPak can't be a huge amount more than that. I'd say a maximum MSRP of $29.99 but I could be wrong.

I finally got a chance to check this thread and egads, my expectations have been greatly broken. Larger nozzles for the Blazer and a strap will make it better than the CPS 2100 and the AquaPak will probably have nozzles even larger than that of the upgraded Blazer. The Waters Warrios line has expanded to a variety and number of soakers that Hasbro may nto be able to meetw ith mutliple rereleases. Thanks for listening to oru suggestions Big Bee; I saw many similarities between the new soakers and some of our suggestions from months earlier. By the way, will the larger WW soakers be expanded beyong K-Mart, to for example, TRU or Wal Mart?

First Post on IScF.

Hmm, very interesting BiggerBee. :laugh:

And I like the sound of the Aqua Pak, when will these guns be coming out? Spring 2005?

I'm kind of confused. What exactly is the advantage of using a pre charge system water gun over a regular water gun?

Will the new Blazer, Aqua Pak, and pre charge systems be sold in every store instead of exclusive stores?

If you've seen (or anyone seen for that matter) some of the new models, could you give your own description and/or even take pics? These soakers aren't likely to be in North American markets until sometime next year.
