    I go on NerfHaven.com where we mod our nerf guns. In the product awareness thread I saw this
    [​IMG]
    It's hosted on tublr so I don't know if this is a clever Photoshop or something. I'm calling bullshit as Takara doesn't do Nerf guns and this is a Hasbro brand.
    If you google search Takara Nerf the first result is the Tumblr page, or rather tags of it now. The subtitle on google suggests there was a page/post. I don't know how tumblr works.

    Any thoughts?

    Looks like a custom job to me. If they were going to officially repaint that mold, I doubt they would have removed the scope.

    If someone could read the Japanese we'd know for certain.

    It's the normal japanese packaging for the Nerf Maverick (which is what the Megatron is painted to resemble) It's clearly a custom. If it was new it would have ties packaging it in.

    Edit: Der, beaten to it.

    Let's see how rusty my Japanese is.

    All the big labels are katakana. Obviously up in the corner it says Nerf (Nee-Fu).
    Then the super title down below is N-strike (literally the English "N" followed by Su-to-ra-i-ku) and, not surprisingly, below that it says Maverick (Maa-bi-ri-kku).

    On the left I don't recognize the Kanji and the katakana afterwards are hard to make out but they say ta-i-pu or ta-i-fu, so probably "type". I think down below it says "shooting blaster!" (Shuu-ti-n-ga?-bu-ra-su-taa!).

    The literal carry over of the N in N-strike lends credence to legitimacy since a photoshop prankster would likely use the katakana "na" or "e-nu" for lulz but then the side logo has it written in English. So my conclusion is that if it is a photoshop, whoever did it knew Japanese or had access to a real N-strike box from Japan (is Nerf sold there?). That's a fair amount of effort to go through for just a prank.

    Damn! Beat me to it!

    This guy's customs are outstanding. I love his Thunderclash, Slapdash, Getaway, Hosehead and Siren. Going to have to attempt them!

    Also his Snaptrap out of Universe Onslaught is fantastic and I bet that's where Whitemocha got his digibash idea from!

    Does that dude post in radicons? Anyone know?

    Needs the scope. I know the maverick does'nt have a scope but it does'nt break the N-force theme overall to include it. besides...Megatron...with fusion cannon. Really breaks the point of the mold.

    Great Custom Otherwise.

    I could throw down $50 bucks and wait 2 months for any import, but I choose not to. Especially on this one.
