Nerf in Terra Nova *Update*

For those that watched the premiere of Terra Nova last night, you may have noticed a few Nerf guns in the show. If you didn't, don't feel bad because I didn't notice them either until someone pointed it out to me(thanks for the pics Nick). I did watch the show and it was pretty good. I guess a big budget show has to try to keep costs down somehow but I don't think Nerf darts are going to be very effective on dinosaurs.
Reworked Recon.


He needs a orange tip on this Nite Finder :)

Update:
Another find. This one is a Longshot upside down. Look close. Thanks Jeremy.

Update: A new pic has surfaced on the net of a Longshot. Now they've gotten just lazy.


Thanks again to Nick for providing the picks.

  5. Hey Jerm
    For something else to post about, if you look at CorridorDigitals videos on YouTube most notably 'Dubstep Guns' you will see a Longshot in that one. Have a look.

    Cheers,

  6. that nitefinder looks like it's just got a recon light casing that's had some holes drilled in as the barrel shroud... interesting!

    Not just a Longshot in DubStep Guns, but there's a Firefly as well.

  11. There was a forum at therpf.com that referenced this site and someone commented that it looks like for the top of the nightfinder they just used the shell of the recon light. And by god it does look like thats what they did. Hell, if they already bought the recons might as well use all the parts! I wonder if well be seeing the recon barrel attached to a gun down the road?

    after the kids are trapped in the armored car, i'm pretty sure the guns they fire has pieces of the recon barrels on them. not sure if it was the whole barrel or not, you can only see it for a few seconds at a time.

  13. I swore that gun was a longshot but i couldnt see it clearly enough to figure out how the lines matched up. An upside down longshot? thats awesome, thats why i couldnt put my finger on it

  14. Last episode had several black LS. Yeah, flat black LS. No cosmetic mods. No nice fake Parkerizing on steel with black, camo, earth tones or drab on polymer. No weathering. No roll marks. No greeblies. Nothing notable at all, just flat black. Like a newbie grabbed a LS and rattle-canned it.

    There's nothing wrong with flat black, but that is completely lacking in creativity. At least this is testament to Nerf's quality in design that a flat black LS can look that good as a sci-fi prop.
