The Target near me runs Super Soaker exclusively. Kmart usually gets a mix of SS, WW, and (sometimes) Storm, but this year its Water Warriors and Water Weapons only. No SS. Must be SS isn't selling as well as they used to. Last year Water Warriors sold out of darn near everything. They had far more models on the shelves than the Super Soakers, and come clearance season, there were only two Pirahnas left.

In my Wal-Mart near where I live I saw the first Water Warriors gun ever. I think that it was called the Gemlin. But, anyways I was surprised to see them there. I also saw alot of Max Infusion Defenders, Artic Shocks, Flash Floods, and Helixs. I think they took the Overloads away.

No new soakers here yet, Toys'R'Us as usual selling 2004 SoakerTag guns (Triple Agressor and Hydroblade), 2005 Artic Shock and Flash Floods and other Shield Blaster rubbish.

I've decided not to get an Oozinator, there would be no use for it and the price won't be worth it for its performance. I am looking out now to get an MI Overload, Flash Flood and Aqua Pack. I'm going to try WoolWorths soon when I have the time, and then a few other stores. Hopefully they will sell them.

Lol, the only place with guns over here is the Big 5. No TRU or K-Marts. Our KB Toys (did they get bought out?) left, and they used to stock every soaker every year. The Big 5 has 6-Flags guns, last years Arctic shocks, and for some strange reason, three or four Big Troubles. I asked them (on an empty day) if they had any old soakers in the back room, and they said no without even looking. A week later, they had Big Troubles out at $30 a pop.

On ebay if your lucky you just might be able to sell them on ebay for more than 30$. I would probably get one if that happened where I live. That is a good idea, I'm going to ask every store around me if they have any old soakers in their storeroom. I might find some olden day CPS's!

Visited a K-B Toys today. Only soaker they had their was the white/blue WW Blazer. They looked like they were going out of buisness.

In Oakville Ontario, the Hopedale mall zellers had super soakers (like Hydro Blade and Shield blasters). But I have experience with things being released in the US and not coming to Canada until a few months later

Just did a little shopping.

Zellers Canada only had Water Warrior Wasps on the shelves. Forgot to check the price. Doh! :goofy:

Walmart - Toronto - had most of the Water Warriors line except for the Scorpion. Splat Blaster - $12.93
Other new WW soaker is the wW Chameleon - small air-pressure soaker (pressurized reservoir), but comes with 3 interchangable tanks.
They also had Black Widows, a Piranha, and a couple of twin packs. Sadly, I didn't have much time and no paper to jot down more specifics.

There will undoubtedly be more in the coming weeks, but it's nice to see things starting to arrive on the shelves.

What were the colors of the Piranha? Same old red, or did they change a few things to black or whatever? The Chameleon sounds interesting. Next thing you know, there will be interchangable clips!

Piranha was re-coloured, but I'm drawing a mental blank at the moment about exactly what colour it was. Too many soaker colours on the shelves and my poor short-term memory. :goofy: I should've taken a pic... shucks...

The Chameleon sounds like something I might want to check out. How big was it, XP 240 big, or XP 20 big?

Chameleon along the size of an XP240. The add on tanks each had their own belt clip. What I failed to grasp is why the tanks were shaped like small rockets. :oo:

I don't know if anyone is near me, but anyway I'll just ask it like this, rather than geographic location... in what store(s) has anyone seen the Aquapack? Also, does $30 US seem to be the standard price for the Overload w/ the 100oz. pack?
