    My brother and I both got one for christmas around the early '90's, posibly around 93. They were black space rifles looking, it had a built it flash light that you could put an orange cone attachment over, that would glow. and the cool thing was that you could pull a sword out of it that could also have an attachment on it o make the blade lok longer. I remember seeing commercials for it on t.v. does anyone know what the hell i am talking about?

    I had one as a kid and loved the thing, but I cant recall what the name was. It was seven weapons in one out of four main parts, the dagger, a blade, a laser barrel, and the machine gun segment. I still find the parts for it every now and then but the blade's segment is hard to attach anymore.

    Got it! Eliminator TS-7. But not much comes up searching for it. Best I can find is a patent on it, eBay, Google, everything turns up squat.

    I had a number of toy firearms in the early 1990s, although my favorite was a fully-automatic all-black Mac-10 submachine gun with some sort of spinning device in it that made a noise resembling that of gunfire when the trigger was pulled.

    It clearly predated the orange cap era.

    I recall the name Eliminator, but not the weapon.

    I still have one of those stored with the rest of my toys. I think the drill/cone attachment is long lost though.

    Ebay:
    do you remember a set of realistic water guns that came out in the late 80s that were powered water guns? the line was called Entertech.
    those things i saw at a hobby store, but couldn't afford. but the owner had one and damn it sounded great.

    i have a large collection of water guns (bought several lots of em cheap at Bud's, Big Lots, etc.) and nerf weapons that me and my friends use as props in short movies we make.
    wish to god we had those Entertech guns now....
    sigh.

    I had a couple Entertech guns when I was younger. I also had another water gun (can remember the name) that came with red dye to add to the water. When you would shoot someone it was supposed to look like blood.

    I remember those dye guns, that was such a bad idea.

    But these days kids are stuck with the super soaker bukkake blaster:
