Well, we're into the Year of the New Lazer Tag system from STM and while I can't wait to see info about it at this year's Toy Fair, I'm still teased by the idea of an earlier announcement.
Back in September of 2011, this was said on the Yahoo! LTTO group by our friend TagFerret.
"I am completing the design of a PCB that can be easily soldered together by hobbyists and will convert the LTX TV Game into a new weapon barrel. Initially there will be two models, RapidBlast (same function as the RapidFire) and SniperShot (self explanatory). Not long after that I hope to have molds completed to be able to produce kits that do not need a TV Game for modification. I'll turn the designs over to 1SLT for production and sales, in order to continue funding TagFest and Fort Worden/Flagler events."
I'm really curious as to where this project is at, given that the new LT system is coming out soon. It'd be nice to give the LTXs one last "huzzah" before we usher in the new stuff in Winter of 2012. Anyone know what the status is on this? I can assure you that there IS interest for these kits.
