Mystery Nerf Blaster?

Posted up on NerfHaven by kevinericon, is what looks like an as yet un-named Nerf blaster.

Interestingly, it resembles the Spartan NCS-12 thats featured in the Wii Nerf N-Strike Game.



Is it a prototype? A final production model? or just a really good photochop? :)

Only time will tell... hopefully more information pops up about it.

Note: The original forum thread that this photo appeared in has since been deleted.

  1. Looks like a reshelled LONGSHOT, possibly more powerfull, and it is most likely not photoshopped.

  2. is this the Stampede ECS-50? looks like vulcan and the Spartan. but ECS means electrical clip system right? maybe this is the Stampede? If it is... then, wooooooooohoooooooooooooo!!

  4. You should have mentioned that the clip in the blaster is an 18-dart clip, which has been seen before.

    IMO the orange bit at the back of the stock looks removable, implying that batteries go in the stock.

    I would love it if it is electric, and as powerful as the Vulcan (more would be nice, but that's not going to happen) because then I could put a couple of airsoft gun batteries in there and use a drum-mag with it :D

  5. It does not look like photoshop, I mean, based on the light angle and the floor used on the background, but the blaster look too glossy, not the style used recently by hasbro...

    My opinion is, a real blaster but not from Nerf.

  6. huh, the thread has disapeared

  7. Stampede ecs 50

    maybe they are two 25 dart clips on each side soooo it's like a 2 dart burst machine gun (that would be awesome)

    ReplyDelete
  8. Emman, you mean it doesn't have a cocking mechanism unlike the vulcan and every other gun except as. the vulcan has the same piece as the ls this however doesn't have one. it maybe an electrical only.

    ReplyDelete
  9. No, the priming handle just wasn't inserted in that one.

    ReplyDelete
  10. I look forward to getting my mits on it, and modding it.

    ReplyDelete
  11. This is an insane photo edit... or the real Stampede... or a homemade shell. The question is: will this top the crossbow and be the most famous gun ever? It looks like that may be possible. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  12. Yeah, it really does look like the Spartan NCS-12 but the front resembles a Vulcan, altogether very interesting though.

    ReplyDelete
  13. I can see those clips being very popular.
    Gun looks coo. Can't wait to find out more info on it.

    ReplyDelete
  14. It does look a lot like the Spartan.. pretty awesome, I want one :D

    Also the bolt isn't usually exposed like that as it is in the pic so I would be inclined to think that there is actually a cover and cocking handle that should go over that section.

    ReplyDelete
  15. No mater what the power or priming method is, that thing is going to look SWEET with a nice paint job.

  16. After looking more closely, I think that this may be a scam... I notice that there's no name on the blaster and the plunger (seen through the "window" on the blaster) is out of line with the clip. Also, the clip looks like a few clips fused together with a logo airbrushed on, and , knowing Nerf, they would probably use a drum magazine anyway. This, in my opinion, is probably a fake shell with a Longshot plunger and a modded clip for realism... you never know till it comes out, tho. ;)

  17. Looks to me like a prototype considering the quality of the plastic and the fact they threw tactical rails everywhere (Two on top, 1/2 on side and two on bottom). It's definetly going to be battery powered considering that long bulge running along the side on the stock. Also the clip slot looks unfinished for some reason...

  18. Just to add fuel to the fire:

    http://nerfipedia.wikia.com/wiki/Spartan_NCS-12

    This page originally stated that "someone working at Nerf" said that the Spartan was now in the boxing process.

    ReplyDelete
  19. ROFL @ RedOx, rrrrriiiight.

    It's not finished product because no paints.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Fake. The clip looks like it was added in photoshop and the front looks exactly like a Vulcans

    ReplyDelete
  21. Here's what we really need to know, who took this picture, where did Kevinericon get this picture from, it didn't magically pop out of no where.

    ReplyDelete
  22. The link doesn't work - I think that Hasbro has ordered Nerfhaven's Administrators to remove all traces of that thread. Also, this thing is just begging for a voltage upgrade.

    ReplyDelete
  23. @people who think that the front portion is from the vulcan:
    Nope, sorry. :P
    I'm looking at my vulcan right now, and although it closely resembles it, its not a match.

    ReplyDelete
  24. And if you look closely, you can see a NERF logo and the N-Strike logo on the stock.

    ReplyDelete
  25. There's no proof that it's real or fake, so we'll just have to wait.

    ReplyDelete
  26. Tony, anyone can airbrush on a Nerf logo and make a shell with a plunger in it. It just doesn't seem realistic, a PERFECT copy from the Nerf game. ;)

    ReplyDelete
  27. Maybe kevinericon knows somebody who works at Nerf?

    ReplyDelete
  28. It Strongly Resembles the Spartan NCS12 a blaster that does a triple dart burst on each trigger pull.
    It has a 12 round ammuniton capacity and is automatic. the only thing this picture is missing is tha bolt mechanism

    ReplyDelete
  29. Redox,
    It's not an exact match, and don't you think that the detail is too good for a forger?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Ok everyone. THIS IS ONE OF THE 9-9-10 BLASTERS
    It is called the big blast.
    it has a bolt like the longshots that is not inserted
    It has a direct plunger system like the longshot
    It has a 18 dart clip
    It is not fake

    The main 9-9-10 gun is called the bigblast.
    want proof?

    go google and type nerf tacticool vest spelt like that
    top link
    3rd pic and click
    ctrl+ 3 times and scroll to 9-9-10 box
    what does it say?

    If im wrong im wrong.

    Time will tell.

  31. Most nerf guns have the name of it on the side with no screws and since this is the side with no screws, there should be a name, for example "Stampede ECS-50" but after enhancing the picture, and zooming in, i didn't see any name. Now why wouldn't they put the name of the gun but the logo? Suspense?
    If it is fake, and they wanted to make it seem real, they should of added the name of the gun on the side.

    ReplyDelete
  32. I messed up. The gun has the title of the gun on both sides. But yet still this Nerf gun has no name on the side.

    ReplyDelete
  33. ^^^^^I can't believe no one saw that before... holy cow. there's no doubt this is the 9.9.10 blaster. battery storage in the back, no priming handle (inserted, but no visible slot either), and its way to good lookin for a shop.

    ReplyDelete
  34. Hhhhhhhhhhmm, just realized it might run on an electronically primed direct plunger system.<:D

    ReplyDelete
  35. @RSDmaxam: LOL I wrote that! It's true, that a nerf employee did say it was in the boxing process. I think he was a fake though. But seeing as the spartan is real (maybe), I guess he wasn't faking. I sure hope this thing is good.

    ReplyDelete
  36. it looks like the f2000 from modern warfare

    also i see no pump or pull back mechanism so i'm thinking automatic almost like an assault rifle

    ReplyDelete
  37. anyone else think of the possibility of the clips being 18 shot straight clips instead of 12 shot clips like the game ?

    ReplyDelete
  38. On the other hand it could be that spempede ECS50. (not that i know)

    ReplyDelete
  39. The access door to unjam darts is blocked, i think its a fake, or at least a prototype that has errors.

    ReplyDelete
  40. The jam door is under the tactical rail, Zano.

    ReplyDelete
  41. Those 18-dart clips pop up on ebay from time to time, usually for $50+. Not a photoshop, just probably a model someone leaked for some extra cash. It isn't finished cosmetically because of the missing Nerf branding on the side, but it's definitely real.

    ReplyDelete
  42. The NERF logo IS on the gun!

    ReplyDelete
  43. it looks like a vulcan barrel and a firefly handle and stalk it most likely has a bolt like a longshot or longstrike but u can be sure

    ReplyDelete
  44. Strange. Part of this looks like something Nerf would make, while another part of it looks like something Buzzbee might make. Guess we'll wait and find out.

    ReplyDelete
  45. According to a nerf update on face book the gun is called the N-Strike Stampede ECS

    ReplyDelete
  46. Just to let everyone know, Nerf officialy announced that this blaster is called the Stampede.

    ReplyDelete
  47. hey has anyone thought that nerf would make new smaller darts to fit 50 in the clip

    ReplyDelete
  48. i think that nerf would make new bullrts probably smaller so it will hold50 darts it makes sense but theywould have to make a new aspect for the clip i might be wrong

    ReplyDelete
  49. ALRIGHT! everyone! this is not the stampede its probably a prototype nerf is working on and an employee took a picture to make more suspence.

    ReplyDelete
  50. Ok the entire back looks like a spartan but no cocking mechanism.

    The front looks like a vulcan.

    IMO a prototype

    ReplyDelete
  51. For all you Nerf Sparten fanboys out there this is not ''t3h spart3nz''

    ReplyDelete
  52. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NGrcnlFQnM4&playnext_from=TL&videos=una3_GxzWfY&feature=recentf

    well its real

    ReplyDelete
  53. Check online to see this gun in action.. look for unreleased nerf guns 2010.. by nzgolem.. these kids got to saw the "fallen off truck" nerf guns

    ReplyDelete
  54. I'm not sure if anyone has noticed but if you look at where the breach is you can make out some sort of rounded corner and it also looks like it lines up with the clip side and make no mistake we have seen these sort of clips before so I do reckon it will be coming out [also evidence is that the youtube video called "3 new nerf guns unreleased"]. I am really seriously excited

    ReplyDelete
  55. well it turns out it is real
