Orange is a popular colour for water pistol components.

If I was 7 this would blow my mind. It's got a collapsible shield!

All 1:1 scale (or close) gun like objects will have an orange cap. This is not Hasbro's decision. It is US Law, if I have my info correct.

How does it look retarded? All Supersoakers are bright and colorful, it's a summer time pool toy.

I've seen it in action and the shield feature is really cool. Plus as aopposed to being a gun you hold, it more straps to your arm.

I'd be all over that if I was a kid. I loved Super Soakers. The brighter the better. I remember the Super Soaker 300 was just a bright yellow fire hose. I could have crushed a small childs face with the pressure that thing was packin'. I think that was the first and perhaps only super soaker to have a safety lock on the trigger mechanisim.

It wouldn't hurt to have a couple super soakers laying around, but I dunno if I could get it.

I think it is law. I remember as a kid.....damn, when was it......definitely before 6th grade because that was when I'd drifted away from those kids. Anyway, we all had these water guns that were designed like real machine guns. I can't recall if they were literally super soakers or not, but they were so realistic......it was like Tipper Gore going off on bands like Twisted Sister and Judas Priest at the time. That's what lead to this orange cap stuff. Looking back at it, I kinda wish I'd have kept one of those water guns.

This whole bit complaining about orange caps reminds me of when the third brake light became law in the mid eighties. Writers to mags like Motor Trend were blasting Lamborghini for putting a third brake light in the rear window of the Countash (sp?) ruining the nice rear image of the car.

In both cases, it's the US Govn't who might be taking things a bit too far in applying these laws, not the manufacturers (though they may be very willing participants.)

In any event, if one orange cap has saved a kid from getting accidentally shot, then I'll put up with them. Heck, back in my day, we had to use our imaginations a lot more anyway to have fun with our toys.

(Of course I'm so old I only had part of a Slinky to play with until I straightened it... :P )

Ok. I have to admit, that is much cooler than I was expecting.

Even if the only TF feature is the Autobot symbol, it looks pretty good.

The orange cap on that thing isn't done because of the law because the law only applies to toys that could potentially be mistaken for a genuine firearm. You'd have an easier time being shot for a cell phone than that thing.

I think that it looks unwieldly and garish though. Also, I'm wondering how heavy it's going to be in total when filled with water and if the average 6-8 year-old is going to be able to lift it on his forearm for very long.

You don't think that manufacturers want to avoid litigation related to these laws? You can blame them if you want, I guess... :?
