YESSSSS! I have spotted two XP 70 soakers at K-mart yesterday... but they were in a SoakerTag box? how could this be? are they REALLY making more?

Yes, the myth was true, older ones are coming back.


Oh yeah, when we were in Toys-R-Us yesterday looking for a birthday gift for my friend, this happened:

M: Mom--R: Me

M: Come on, Don't get stuck to the Supersoaker isle, you already have three.
R: IS THAT what I think it is?
Dad: lets get away from here ;)
R: Its Some sorta' CPS? COOL!
D: we arent looking for things for you right now.

"R: BUT ITS IN A SOAKERTAG BOX?"

Sorry if I used a lot of space yapping on about this conversation.

PS: The 2004 soakers are TINY. the Helix is only as big as a CPS 1000, and the 3A is only as big as a 1200.
I don't check this forum anymore.

Neat, well I'm going to WalMart today myself, I'm taking pictures too, a few will make it to the reviews, which I am planning to redo with all the new lines, and a few will make it to the gallery I'm working on. :D I think my local K-Mart went bankrupt last year, I dunno, I'll ask to check that out too.

that's the only cps I've ever heard of them reproducing this year. btw I think I kinda figured out the idea behind the 2100 and 4100, I think their idea was to merge all the spherical cps guns into one, and all the cylindrical cps guns into one, respectively.

You can pretty much ignore the times on that, I rarely ever have Xfire on when I play. I should, though.

Went looking for soakers today.

Woolworths:

Triple Aggressor: £19.99 (~$36)
XP 270: around £10 (~$18)
Max-D 2000: below £10
XP 240: £7.99 (~$14)
Helix: £9.99 (~$18)

Nothing much there.

Toys 'r' us:

Max-D Secret Strike: £11.99 (~$21)
Hydroblade ( :Hey, that's funny.: ): £14.99 (~$27)
XP 270: around £10
XP Triple Play: £9.99, I think

Assistant there was helpful and went to warehouse to check. He said that there was an "eight-barrel" Super Soaker. Well...I was thinking..."what?"...but asked to see it...and he came back with a...Monster X. First one I've ever seen.

Price? £49.99 (~$90).

And copyright date on it was 2000.

So, unsurprisingly, I didn't buy it. Realise how overpriced soakers over here are?

P.S. Also did some phoning around last week. Only actual CPS was a 1200 for £19.99 (~$36), and there were two XP medium assault rifles: XP 110 (£19.99) and XP 310 (~£14.99). All overpriced, in my opinion. <_<

I bought a third Monster X two weeks ago in Canadian Tire for $35.00 CAN. Thats about $26 US.

I went to fred meyer's (great store for soakers) yesterday and was expecting to get a soakertag soaker (im very ashamed, but hey, they look cool! ;) and I saw a max-d 2000 set of 2 with 2 soaker attack balls! so I picked that up. by the way the whole thing was $8.69 with tax. and one more thing: the soaker tag soakers look different than the pics on the site. im guessing those were just prototype pics. and then when I went to blockbuster to rent some movies I saw a max-d 2000 (single pack, buzz-lightyear edition...new colors...w/e) again! if you guys Don't have max-d 2000s, id reccomend getting the 2 pack. they're out, in soaker tag boxes, and 2 makes for one Hasbro HQ of a backup set. ITS TRUE! ITS TRUE! they're remaking them!
