Cool

I was just leaving the house and just about to turn off the TV...And I caught the Super Soaker EES commercial...It was basically like the MD Secret Strike commercial...And the XP-90 concept is back, at the end of the commercial they showed the "Pulsating Nozzle Action"....Pretty much a lame and weak commercial but I thought I might as well post it.

agreed. Soakers are getting cheaper and so are their commercials.

Hasbro is just trying to cut down on costs to make and advertise Super Soakers. I hate it. <_<

maybe there's good in this. Hasbro may soon lose money from soakers, because they try to save money now, or they don't sell good. then either:

a. different, hopefully better company takes over, learns from Hasbros mistake
b. Hasbro is forced to make better soakers to earn more money.

I think its because Hasbro has quite a few other divisions they just Don't care about soakers :cry:

Hasbro may just be trying to get the "kid" audience back to supersoakers. You have to admit, for the past few years (1998,2000,2002 ) Supersoakers have been a little over powered and clunky for age 10 and under crowd. To compete with stuff like the storm guns, Hasbro's gone back to XP-type weaponry and slapped lights and sound on it.

I think Hasbro is making some repaints as a market experiment. To test if repaints will sell.
