Alien Menace is a series of Nerf blasters that was released in fall of 2016.

It is a worldwide Toys "R" Us exclusive.

Details

The Alien Menace series features blasters and products with a heavy science fiction design to them, with a mix of "organic and mechanical looking elements", as well as "alien-styled mechanisms".

History

Sometime after the release of the Voidcaster, Alien Menace products underwent a large color scheme change, with purple colors being replaced with a blue color scheme similar to that of the Voidcaster's. Branding had also shifted from purple being their primary color, to blue, making a change to the series' logo and product packaging.

In 2017, Toys "R" Us declared bankruptcy; stores would close the next year. Due to this, and no other retail stores officially picking up the series, such as Target getting rights to sell Doomlands 2169 products, Alien Menace fell into discontinuation.

Trivia

  • Aside from the Nerf logo, all writing on Alien Menace blasters is in an "alien language", rather than English. This alien language's alphabet substitutes for the English alphabet on blaster decals and packaging.[1]

    • Huh, I didn't notice that they stopped making new blasters in that line.
    • honestly the only good blaster in Alien Menace was the Incisor anyway so I'm not too concerned about it
