I thought you were the first to get these things over there. Is that not true, you had the long strike WAY before us here in the US.
MetroidMan347,Yup, Transparent Mavericks were already available in Singapore since 3rd quarter 2009. They were sold out after a short while though.My post is just to indicate that they have been re-stocked again at dept stores. :)
Oh, well that makes sense. I don't see 'em much here either. I thought you meant that this is the first time they've arrived in Singapore.
When will these be available in the states? I'm guessing in about a month or two...
When can you get them in Canada? And if you can't then can you get them for me? I'll be more then happy to pay a little extra for it(+ shipping and handling.
Are these any harder to modify than a regular maverick?
forkandtheroad,Well, the Transparent Maverick is now part of the upcoming Clear Blaster range, so i guess the blasters should be avaliable in stores everywhere over the next few months.
John,Yup, as part of the Clear Blaster range, the Transparent Maverick should be avaliable at your local stores very soon... along with the Transparent Recons, Deploys, Raiders and Nite Finders.As for modding, the Transparent Mavericks are essentially the same as the normal Mavericks.
Thanks Sg Nerf! One more question. Have you done the mod to the maverick so the barrel flips out farther? If so, does the barrel still rotate when you pull the trigger? Thanks so much!
they are availeble in canada at walmart. for 15$
John,Yup, the Maverick "full flip-out" mod is basically just removing a small plastic nub from the casing. It doesn't affect the barrel rotation operation or mechanism.
Can you post a mod of the full flip out mod on the Mod Works blog? You always do the best write-ups!
John,Well, its a very simple mod actually.Just pop out the Maverick barrel and note the small plastic nubs that block the barrel from flipping outwards fully, then just cut or trim them flat. :)
Help!!! My nerf maverick is broken. I pull back the cocking thingy, it seems to cock, but when i begin to push it back somthing slips out of place inside so it won't cock! Everyting inside looks fine. I'm stumped.
I'll open it up again and check what you said! Thanks for the help!
Is there any physical difference between the gamestop/walmart release of this and the new clear series release?
Reginald L. Seay Jr. aka Rolento13,The Transparent Mavericks have a slightly more matt look to their casings, while the Clear Series Mavericks have a clearer look to their casing.Otherwise, both blaster versions work the same.
Actually went to Target today to look at the Clear Series Maverick. I noticed the easiest way to spot the Clear Series reprint. The right side of the slide has a Caution box on the opposite side of the Nerf Logo. On the original release, the caution box was completely orange with raised letters, on the new clear series, it's just clear with raised letters painted black!
