Blade Runner mini blaster mod Nerf Super Soaker microburst

Mini Blade Runner homage blaster

The Nerf Super Soaker Microburst is one of the new blasters in the Super Soaker range and I have to say, I love it. There’s just something really cool about this little gun. The downside of modding the Nerf Super Soaker Microburst has to be removal of the logos. The Nerf logo sits smack bang in the middle of the textured grip and the Super Soaker logo is deep and runs along the main body. Those issues aside this little blaster has so many possibilities, I only wish I owned more, I’ll definitely be picking up a few more in the future.

If you’ve been following my exploits for awhile, you may well know I am a fan of Ridley Scott’s movie “Blade Runner” and I’ve done a couple of little homage mods previously including a weird steampunk inspired revolver and a Nerf Vortex Proton.

The Nerf Super Soaker Microburst makes a great little Blade Runner gun because it has that science-fiction blaster feel to it. I added in some fake LED look glass on the screw areas on each side, and a fake slide switch on one side to sort of mock the well known Blade Runner 2019 LAPD sidearm. Also some decal love of course and finished.

  1. Hello, I think your blog might be having browser compatibility issues.
    When I look at your blog in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet
    Explorer, it has some overlapping. I just wanted to give you a quick heads up!
    Other then that, amazing blog!

    1. Hey Selena, thanks for the heads up, to my knowledge it’s cross-browser compatible, but if not I guess that’s what people get for using IE ;p I mean seriously.. who still does? haha.

  2. Please note – My son did this – Maybe he saw your mod. Please – Never forget – twelve year old Tamir Rice was killed by police in broad daylight in a park with a toy gun modified without the orange tip. I saw your picture on pinterest and had the dread I felt the first time I read his story. My son is latino and I ran to the garage and grabbed this exact water gun shown (modified from seeing the mods on the internet) and threw it in the trash because he refused to keep the tip orange during his mod. My son is twelve and brown and even though its a blaster, it looks like a handgun from a distance. Please remember Tamir Rice, please show the end kept as orange. There is a reason that it is a standard in the industry. Our children love bloggers and YouTubers – they think you are famous and someday want to meet you. Please realize your fame comes with significant responsibilities. Keep up your creativity and have fun – but remember your audience is wider than you think. RIP Tamir.

    1. I always state this on my builds with the card that is inserted into the finished piece. My pieces are made for display as art, not for playing with outside or in Nerf wars. Here in Australia our gun laws are far stricter than in the USA, here you cannot even purchase pellet guns or Airsoft blasters. I am truly sorry to hear about Tamir, but this also comes down to poor police training. which is something we seem to be suffering with more and more here in Australia too. We all need to care about one another more. Thank you for sharing your comment.
