NERF’s latest addition to their pop culture-inspired LMTD line of blasters has League of Legends fans in their sights. Riot Games has partnered with Hasbro / NERF to make Jinx’s iconic “Fishbones” rocket launcher into a limited-edition foam-shooting reality. Even if you’re not a LoL fan, you have to admit that this is an interesting blaster. The design is outrageous and awesome, and it features a 3-dart burst mode.
Indeed, one pull of the trigger will fire 3 Nerf Elite foam darts from an 18-round drum (6 clusters of 3 darts), and best of all, it doesn’t require batteries to do the job. In addition, the fish’s mouth can open and close. There’s even a display stand so you can admire it while you play the game or watch the animated Arcane: League of Legends series on Netflix.
Unfortunately, a blaster this awesome won’t come cheap. Nerf LMTD League of Legends Fishbones blaster pre-orders are live here on Amazon and here at Entertainment Earth for $169.99 (free shipping in the US with the code HOLIDAYFREE22). The other problem is that NERF won’t ship it until January 2024, which is comparable to the long wait we’ve experienced with the LMTD Halo Needler. On the plus side, you won’t be charged until the release date.
If you’re unfamiliar, NERF’s LMTD line of blasters is based on iconic weapons from popular movies and video games and has covered IPs such as Star Wars, Aliens, and Star Trek in the past. If you haven’t checked out Arcane on Netflix yet, fix that ASAP – it’s absolutely fantastic. That said, we’re eagerly looking forward to Season 2 of the series, which is on the way, but a release date hasn’t been officially announced as of yet.
Arcane delves into the delicate balance between the wealthy city of Piltover and Zaun’s seedy underbelly. Tensions between these city-states boil over with the creation of hextech – a way for everyone to master magical energy – in Piltover; and in Zaun, a New drug called shimmer turns people into monsters. The rivalry between the cities divides families and friends as Arcane brings to life the relationships that make up some of the famous champions of League of Legends, including Vi, Jinx, Caitlyn, Jayce and Viktor. Behind the game League of Legends, the animated event series offers a complex world full of moral decisions, breathtaking animations and exciting stories.”
