HYPE. is approaching ten years of being in business, and the UK brand is continuing its meteoric rise. “We’ve come a long way as a brand since just selling printed t-shirts,” says the company. “Our complete range now covers menswear, womenswear and kidswear and no includes more than just t-shirts and backpacks.”
Adding NERF blasters to that lineup seems a natural fit for the company’s philosophy. There are two types of blasters sporting the HYPE. look. The first uses HYPE.’s core colour palette of purple, cyan, blue, and green. The second has a stealth heat map printed on it, using green, orange, yellow, and navy. Each blaster comes in its own custom packaging and includes six exclusive darts with the signature NERF orange top and a white base with dual branding embossed onto it.
Both soft-play toy guns are NERF’s Disruptor, which features a rotating drum that holds six darts. The Disruptor features quick-draw action and “Slam-Fire” which allows you to fire all six darts rapidly. The darts fire up to 90 feet.
Getting the blasters may be a challenge as they are a part of a drawing offered by HYPE.
