The original Water Warriors Argon was released back in 2005. The 2016 version of the Water Warriors Argon by Alex Brands Buzz Bee Toys Holdings appears mostly identical except that the pre-charger toggle button is now replaced by a lever-switch. Testing is needed to see how similarly this new version compares to the original.
The Water Warriors Aqua Beast appears to be the largest new pump-action water blaster by Alex Brands Buzz Bee Toys Holdings LLC for 2016. Featuring a large reservoir and nozzle selector with 3 settings, in many ways, it can be considered the bigger brother of the 2015 Water Warriors Drench Master.
Also new for 2016 is the Water Warriors Barbarian water blaster. This water gun uses the same spring-enhanced pump-action technology as first seen in the Water Warriors Steady Stream (2007). More on this water blaster once I find the time to free it from its packaging and do a more in-depth review.
The Water Warriors Thresher is an upcoming Water Warriors brand water blaster for 2016 by Buzz Bee Toys. It appears to be a re-styled Water Warriors Gargoyle (2013). More to come once actual reviewing begins…
Looking at past trends, it seems like Buzz Bee Toys you release more new water blaster models every other year for odd-numbered years. See the iSoaker.com Water Warriors Evolution Tree. The only exception to this happened in 2008 when there was a number of re-releases as well as a surge in the number of pump-action water gun designs. In more recent years, five new items were released in 2013, only two new items were released in 2014, and four new items were released for 2015.
Therefore, going by this trend, we would predict that perhaps only 2 or 3 new models should be expected for 2016.
Of course, some trends are meant to be broken.
First snow here for Winter, 2015 that actually stayed around – this Water Warriors Power Shot XL doesn’t hide so well in the white.
Nerf Super Soaker Washout pictures posted on iSoaker.com. Being a relatively small pump-action water gun (and that it’s getting much closer to winter here), I presently have no plans on doing any major testing on this item. However, I will be posting a little more information and thoughts on this model in the near future.
Enjoy the boxed pictures for now!
New thumbnail images are rolling out across iSoaker.com’s various product review pages. The iSoaker.com Review Database page is but one section that now enjoys larger images. While some may have preferred even larger “thumbnails”, I opted for this size as a good compromise between being larger with more visible, yet still small enough so that one can see a decent number of these thumbnails when viewing iSoaker.com on a mobile device. As I do not have the manpower nor desire to maintain a separate mobile-optimized site, my goal is to try to have iSoaker.com both desktop and mobile friendly using only one shared design.
More changes to come, but the bigger changes are planned for the end of the year/start of 2016. Still can’t believe it’s already November!
