GameStop to release exclusive Boba Fett Nerf gun and mask set this spring


Coming spring 2017, this Star Wars: Battlefront-themed Nerf gun set from Hasbro will make you feel like the famous bounty hunter Boba Fett.

If Boba Fett is your favorite character from the Star Wars universe, put this Nerf gun and mask set on your list of must-haves.

In spring 2017, GameStop will release an exclusive Nerf gun set inspired by Boba Fett’s iconic Mandalorian armor. The set comes in a Star Wars: Battlefront-themed display box decorated with stunning artwork of the bounty hunter on the inside. Accessories include a mask with an elastic band to strap around your head; a patch featuring Boba’s mythosaur symbol; and 7 Nerf Rival foam rounds.

The Nerf blaster itself is pretty sweet. It is an Apollo XV-700, which shoots rounds at a velocity of 100 feet per second. Additionally, it features an easily reloadable magazine for fast shooting; exactly what a bounty hunter in a galaxy full of dangers needs.

Disclaimer: The mask is not meant to be a protective device, but rather an accessory to aid your Boba Fett cosplay.

I used to play with a Jango Fett foam dart blaster when I was a kid. It was a fun toy, but this Boba Fett Nerf blaster looks like a step up. I love the details, like the weathered paint job and the magazine that holds multiple foam rounds. At $89.99, however, it is pretty pricey. For a lot of people, that’s too much to pay for a toy you or your kids will break or discard after only a few plays. So keep usability in mind before you purchase it.
