Yes, I own only the 2500 keychain. I think that ChrisReid has the 2000 one. The 2500 keychain has 2500 colo(u)rs, but the nozzle area is the same as the 2000. Plus, the body is the darker gray, like that of the 2000.

The MX Squirt pen was also quite interesting. Hasbro should release more soakers in the squirt pen format. Then you can use it for multiple purposes.

So which soakers would look good as pens? Obviously they'd have to be reasonably in the shape of a cylinder and not as box-ish as say, the 2700 or Triple Aggressor. I think that a MXL double pen (two colors of ink, anyone?) would work well.

No.. something long and not very tall. Something like a CPS 2100 or 4100. Maybe a Max-D 5000 or a Helix.

A helix would be good. As you said, short guns work better. Thats why I think we should have duel xp 15's or 215's.

Why would a spashzooka not work? It's ong and not tall. Also, if you press the tip of the pen very very very hard itno a miniature QFD you could even super charge it! What I really think they should do is make mini CPS 3200 and 3000 key chains.

What about those things you stick on the ends of pencils? Think about it, if you had one of a Zook, it would face downward into the pencil and if you gave it a twist and eraser would come out of the orange back part.

Naah, the Zooka has that thing on the front. Not good for a pen.

Thing? The pen would "impale" the front of the gun.

Color-wise, I'd like to see alot of translucent combined with transparent parts. I'm talking about every piece possible, even down to a clear silicone CPS firing chamber.

Alright, how about any soaker shrunk to the size of a pen but with a pen inside of it. Should the pen tip be on the reservior side so that there's still a mini-soaker on the other end or should the pen tip be on the nozzle area?

No, I have the solution! You guys know those pens with mutiple colored tips that change when you click the pen? Well one of those tips could be the nozzle, and the other could be a regular pen tip. A very plausible idea.

Only problem with that idea is that in order for you to fire the thing, the nozzle would have to move to line up to the resevoir and PC. Also, the true pen tips would be completely soaked, not to mention useless if the water got into the pen. I've had problems with wetting the ink "cartridges" getting wet when I pick my door lock when my sister locks me out, then if they get wet, they're useless, or that may just be my cheap cartridges. :p

Therefore, a more feasible idea would be to copy the MX pen's design and attach the pen section to the back of the mini-soaker. The reservior of the mini-soaker could be where in the PC on the full-size soaker was, making the mini-soaker's reservior purely a decorative casing for the pen section. Unlike a reservior-PC system shrunk to mini, a traditional squirt-piston design would still be used.

Maby there could be something like what i'm makeing: a pair of glasses with a small tube that is hard to see, it could be attached with rubberbands if it was a homemade. The tube could go into youre pocket, then go into a 2-cent squirtgun. That and a device that could be made so that it hooks onto part of the wall above a door, when someone openes the door they get squirted. Not shure how this would work yet.
