I just saw the Super Soaker Max-D Secret Strike commercial, where a group of kids with Max-D's ( Not Secret Strikes ) sneak up on some kids who are relaxing on chairs.....And the kids on the chairs shoot the other kids with thier Secret Strike before they shoot them......But overall I'm abhored with the Super Soakers now :angry: ......No CPS's what so ever....Could they possibley be that stupid to get rid of thier most sucessful gun? :huh:

Hasbro is trying to increase revenue by reducing the amount of parts and such in the soakers, and change the target of the product to little kids. When the Super Soaker division gets negative revenue, it will only prove the fact that what people buy will usually make the most cash.

...Super Soakers used to mean something....They represented the highest power and technology you could get in a small/large package....It symbolized power and prestiege, if you had a Super Soaker you were the tip of the arrow and you were darn proud of it....Now, they are just weak little generic water guns for children...It is a sad state of affairs to see something like this happen....The decline of the Super Soaker Empire as we know it has taken place...And there is no stopping it now....And who do we blame for it? HASBRO!..... :angry:









If that was not moving, then I don't know what is :winkwink:

yup super soakers suck now, maybe the dumbXPBackfire-esques at hasbaro will figure out that the guns won't sell as well and they won't get any money out of them, maybe after 2 years they will get there heads out of there asses and figure out how to make a real water gun again hasbro

I won't ban him for that. But if it's done a lot, I will eventually make him a restricted memeber.

Shadow, a lot of people really like the 4100 because it really is a good gun, me and Mist in particular.....The only difference between the Monster and the 4100 is the fact that the 4100 isn't QFD compatible, but it has better range, and in my opinion, I'd rather have better range :soakem: ..............Hey, the Jerry smiley has been taken off :yikes: :verysad: :cry:
