Well, the PC either has to be very small, or it has to be cylndrical (sp?!?!?). Any way you slice it, its gonna be small. Also, I forgot to mention the SB comes with a strap, and Kwik Gripspistol with belt clip, and the blaster itself comes with a strap as well.

I sent pics to Isoaker plus a video, since i could't get a halfway decent picture of it.

If it smell's like rubber then there must be a pc, but with only a 22oz resivior(spelling) it must be really small. :cool:

Yup, got the pics from Sharp Objects (Thanks!) I've sent him an email about where the pics are online so he can add them to a post and perhaps add some caption to go along with the images.

As for the video sent, I'm considering converting it into Flash format to compress the size and make it more embedded into a page. Short, but good little video. I hope to push that up later today or tomorrow.

Will you be posting the information here on iSoaker.com? Or can you send me the stuff? I'd like to see it.

Read his post. He said he would put up the video on iSoaker.com sometime soon, and that the pics are uploaded onto a image host for SharpObjects to include in a post if he wants to.

Whoops, I read it, but I didn't. :goofy: I didn't understand what he meant to do with the pics though. So SharpObjects will post the pics here in the topic, then? Will they be posted on the site as well in the review?

EDIT: 200th post!

If Sharp Objects gives me permission to, I'll include them in the Splat Blaster review page. Otherwise, I'll just host the image files for sake of this thread. I'd assume Sharp Objects should post a reply with the images either tonight or tomorrow. He's already replied to the email I sent him regarding the location of the files.

These next 2 are very VERY bad and blurry. But they are the nozzle valve closed/opened

Holy soaker Batman! Those are HUGE!!!!!! (very very sorry from me)

and yes, please use them if you want Isoaker, but I am sure your pictures will be much better and more detailed when you get yours.

After seeing them on here, I'm going to shrink the images later tonight.

Thanks for the permission of reposting them, though!

Wow, that thing is... short. Unorthodox trigger valve, too, but I knew they had to do something created to make it have a barrel. I'm guessing the hyrdro power is in the bend in the handle.

Looks really comfortable, perhaps a huge potential for modding. Any stream shots?

I like the look of it. It probably would have been better with a regular pump though, and a bigger pump volume...maybe they could fix this for next year. I'm interested to see the internals, though.

One thing though, I thought that Big Bee said that they couldn't make their blasters look too much like a real gun? This blaster is the closest looking to a real gun that I've seen from Water Warriors.

I now see how it looks like a shotgun. I guess that is why they could not make it hold more than 22 oz.

Ok, image sizes have been reduced to save space and bandwidth. Still thinking about how to post up the video well.

@ Sharp Objects - does your digicam have a 'flower' or 'macro' setting? If so, you might consider trying it out when taking pictures of objects close to the lens. It helps prevent getting blurry pictures like the ones you took of the Splat Blaster's nozzle. Otherwise, great pics and I as well as other members here are grateful for your sharing of them!

I'll have to check on the setting, its a new camera, and I have yet to figure out all of the technical stuffs. Just sent some internals to you, please post them for all to see in a size we can all enjoy, and yes, they are a little blurry, I'll see what I can do, but I just hope everyone gets a basic idea.

That is one of the strangest looking guns i've seen (wasn't expecting it look like a shotgun only perform like one). I do see some modding potential but overall i'm not impressed. I also find it hard to believe that they hope to beat Hasbro with this :laugh: , but there's alway's the scorpion. :cool:
