Hi everybody, I've been talking about taking a new picture of my Super Soaker collection for quite some time. It's been a couple years since my last photos went up, and I've gotten a few more soakers since then. Hope you like the pictures.

Oh my God! I'll say that again! Oh my god! Your collection is HUGE. Where did you get all the money to buy them all?

I nearly fainted when I saw that. There must be thousands of dollars/pounds worth of guns there.

I just had to pick my jaw up off my keyboard it dropped so far. That's an incredible collection! I counted 7 Power Paks, 2 CPS 2000s...that's amazing!

Hey, thanks for the response. I'm not really interested in selling any, but I could trade for certain ones I don't have. I'm really interested in getting unique Soakers I'm missing more than anything else. If each gun averaged about $15, then the collection would be worth more than $4000. There's a lot of guns there that came out around $20, so the average could be a bit higher. There are also the 2000s, MXLs, Monster X, etc, that go for $100-200, which would push it up some more. And there are a few "priceless" ones that are quite rare that I value quite highly: GI Joe Soakers, Water Balloon Flingers, Jurassic Park Soaker Backpack, Camoflage SS 50, Inflatable Rider, etc. I'll make a list next of missing ones I'm particularly looking to get.

A most impressive collection. You should consider submitting your record to the Guiness Book of World Records and see if its representatives think highly enough of it because we common folk sure do.

By the way, is the Jurassic Park backpack soaker from Jurassia Park 1 or Jurassic Park 2: The Lost World?

AS Field Marshall Yang said, submit the number of soakers you have to the Guiness Book Of Records and see if you have the biggest collection ever. Another point, how do you choose which one to use?

The Jurassic Park Soaker is a promotional tie-in to the Lost World. There are still many rare and exotic Super Soakers I've only seen once or twice or haven't seen in many years that I'm trying to get.. and I'll need to get a bunch more of those before I start claiming any records. I use a wide variety of blasters. I tend to grab what's new and try to use those a bunch. Otherwise I use the smaller CPS or heavier XPs most of the time. I really like the 1-3-5 for all-around stuff, or the XP105 if I don't need much water.. but my preferences constantly change.

Chris, my favorite question is this:
If you could only take one gun into battle, which ONE would you take?

That is a collection truly worthy of the book of world records. While I am more of a collector now, I truly do admire you and your collection of soakers. While I will never probably accumulate so many water blasters, My goal is at least 50, and I will collect as many as I can, and the ones I want. I have a great start now, 30 to go to my goal, and I nailed 2 of the hardest CPS soakers to get. :cool:

Like I said, right now I'd feel like I'd be in a CPS 1-3-5 mood. It's a great all-around blaster.

Are all 7 of your Power Paks in good working order? While I'm on the topic of Power Paks, a lot of people say that they are known to have a short life span and that they've gone through 4 of them or whatever. What is the most common problem with them? Surely it's repairable, isn't it?

Mine started spurting water out of the hand gun bit. It was awesome while it was around, I could take on anyone. I once took on a CPS1000, he ran, but tried rolling under a fence, got stuck, so i switched to saturator and drenched him so completely. His face was so funny.

If you had said that on the AQT boards in 2001, you'd probably be banned. :goofy:

Well, probably not, but still...
Heck, I don't understand your reasoning, even into 2004.
Why do you think of it as such a great all-around gun if it can only dish out 5 1x blasts, not even at one guy? You can't get a guy soaked like that.
