iSoak’D 162: Santa (2017) – Epilogue posted on iSoaker.com. Enjoy and Happy Holidays!
A clearer image of the upcoming 2018 Nerf Super Soaker Twin Tide was found on this website.
As expected, the Twin Tide appears to be a standard pump-action water blaster featuring over-under dual nozzle configuration. The newer Nerf Super Soaker models seem to be using their handle/trip regions as part of their reservoir and can do so easily since they have no trigger or other more complex internals in that region of the blaster’s body. As both nozzles are powered by the same pump, taking its apparent size into consideration, either the nozzles will be slightly smaller than usual in order to maintain functional stream range. Time and testing will tell. More information to be posted as it becomes available.
Recent found this clearer picture of the upcoming 2018 Nerf Super Soaker SplashMouth on this website.
From this image and the previous illustration seen, the novelty of this pump-action water blaster is the fact that its reservoir has a top panel that can be opened (by depressing that tab at the back), allowing one to “splash” out its reservoir contents. I really cannot comment on whether this would be a particularly effective water attack unless at really close-range. More info on this water blaster will be posted as it becomes available.
Came across this clearer image of the upcoming 2018 Nerf Super Soaker Soakzooka on this website.
Granted, while the image is clearer, I still haven’t quite figured out how it is likely to work. What I initially thought would be a pivoting handle now appears to possibly slide (?) downwards (?). Or perhaps it does pivot on the bottom point, making the nozzle piece slide in and out (?). It appears to have up to 7 nozzles, but could actually be 6 or even just one; at thing angle, cannot tell which of those holes actually have nozzles in them.
Will post more as information come available.
Enjoy the pic and soak on!

Pictures of an original Super Soaker XP 55 (New-in-Box) posted on iSoaker.com. Packaging colors and layout aside, one additional interesting thing to note is the preview of the “unverified” Super Soaker XP 300 shown on the back of the box.

Stumbled across one more name for a possible upcoming Nerf Super Soaker water blaster for 2018: the Supersoaker Zombie Strike Ripstorm.
Beyond its name, no pictures or other information is presently available.
Will keep searching and posting info as it becomes available. Soak on!
As noted by jja on WaterWar.net, a few upcoming 2018 Nerf Super Soaker model images have been found.
Based on these low-resolution images, the Splash Mouth and Twin Tide appear to be pump-action, but am unclear on the Soakzooka. If I were to guess, the Soakzooka might use a trigger-less small stored-energy system like the 2008 Super Soaker Quick Blast, but this is purely speculation due to the pump shape and lack of a notable trigger (unless that isn’t a pump, but a lever-based trigger). As for why a water blaster with “gatling-gun”-type styling was given a name containing “-zooka” remains to be understood. As for the “Splash Mouth”, it looks like water can be *sloshed* out of a hole in the top (?).
I did stumble across one other name for a possible upcoming 2018 Nerf Super Soaker, the Nerf Super Soaker Zombie Strike Ripstorm, but as there are no images, yet, it remains unclear whether this item will actually be available, yet.
More info on upcoming water blasters as information becomes available. Soak on!
I’ll admit I’ve been a lot slower at updates the past little while, but life has been occupying more of my free time than previously. I don’t expect things to free up much in the foreseeable future, but consider updates to be slower, but far from forgotten.
That said, I was in Hong Kong the other week and got to visit Alex Brand Buzz Bee Holdings’ HK Headquarters (see pic of the front desk above). Understandably, I couldn’t take too make pics inside their offices, but was fun to visit there are meet some of the people who work there as well.
