xkcd: Slide Trombone

It’s been awhile – happy March 139th… err.. July 17. Hope everyone is staying safe and healthy during these challenging times.

Water blaster comics are less common, so always nice to find one, especially from one of the artists I visit more often. see: https://xkcd.com/2334/


Upcoming 2020 Nerf Super Soaker water blasters?

It appears that what was old is new again?

Looks like the original Super Soaker 100 and Super Soaker 30 are returning in an updated form. These new versions are given an “XP” designation, though this may be for EU/UK products and North American versions may or may not be named identically.

Not much else is known about these water blasters and how well they perform compared to the original versions. There are two other water blasters named, but no images available, yet: the Nerf Super Soaker XP20 and Super Soaker Fortnite Pump SG.

More info to come as it becomes available…

Soak on!

Soakerpunk 2077

It’s been awhile since I did one of these. Granted, while I haven’t played the video game, once-upon-a-time, I used to play Shadowrun, a role-playing game set in a similar sort-of dystopian future. I’ll post up a larger version of this graphic on iSoaker.com soon so that some of the other changes to this screen capture from Cyberpunk 2077 become more apparent.

Update: Posted on iSoaker.com.

Enjoy and soak on!

First Day of Summer, 2019

Happy First Day of Summer, 2019!

For me, it’s been actually one of the first days since the start of the year that it’s actually felt like summer. Alas, also like things have been for me since the start of the year, finding time to test and review the latest water blasters has been few and far between. I did recently pick up a couple of the Nerf Fortnite Super Soaker water blasters (specifically, the HC-E and R1; haven’t gotten the TS-R, yet). Unfortunately, haven’t had a chance to take pictures, let alone measure any statistics on either of them.

I also acknowledge that I’m behind on iSoaker.com reviews, notably for the Nerf Super Soaker Hydra and Nerf Super Soaker Piranha. I hope to get at least one review up by end of next week, but life keeps on dropping surprises on me so only time will tell.

Granted, this warm weather is inspiring me to want to go out and do some field testing using some of these new water blasters on friends and family. Hope others are making better use of the weather than I’ve managed to do, thusfar.

Soak on!
