Default WTF Is this gun?

http://cgi.ebay.com/SUPER-SOAKER-BIG...item3a580fcf4c

it looks like maybe one of the EES line or something but I've never seen it before on any site I've been to. The listing says its an SS model and the logo looks like SS, but I dunno. Any ideas? This thing would appear to be rare at the very least.

Ok, well it looks kinda like an SC 500. I have never found anything like this, so it's skeptical whether of not to buy it or not. Wish the description had stats.

I wouldn't buy this or anything. It might just be an illegally made gun with an SS sticker stamped on.

To my knowledge the Big Bottle Blaster is a real Super Soaker - and one of the few Super Soakers that truly are rare. At twenty bucks, it would seem to be a steal.

The Big Bottle Blaster is real. I spotted one a year or so ago and didn't know what it was either, but with some research found that it IS a real Super Soaker

I might try to get it then, but only for resale. I thought it looked like a supersoaker in the detailing, especiall with that little bumpy tube going up the body. Do you know how much they could resell for? I'm guessing this is a separate pressure chamber gun.

It seems kind of rare, but it looks like you will only have collectors bidding on it, because it is limited in battle practicality. Too bad, I was hoping for at least the power of an XP 270.

I won the auction. I'll do a review of the thing and all, but I have zero idea of its history and why its so rare and all. Sounds like some of you did some research so if you could cover that portion I'll do the testing and stuff. Sound good?

I just got one too, so I am trying to find out what makes it a rare gun.
Anybody have any leads for me?
Thanks,

It really doesnt look like most supersoakers, except maybe the EES line. Also, it seems to have come out in a year full of incredible guns (the 97-98 area is legendary) but it doesnt look like it gives all that much power.... So that might be why production was limited.

It's rare because... it is rare! You can't find easily! Circumstances of these for sale are few and far between.

Well obviously, but I'd like to know the story behind that. For example, the 2000 is rare because its sought after and was taken out of production. The MXL is rare because its stupid, and so forth and so on. So why did they produce the big bottle blast in the first place when they knew there were far more powerful soakers they were putting out? Why did they give it such a silly name? Why was production stopped? So forth and so on.

It might have also been stopped because it was a promotional run, such as one given away with a certain number of box tops or the like. But can you guys show where you found information on it?
