You Can Build a Working Nerf Blaster Using Lego

By Andrew Liszewski on at

Proving once again that the only toy any kid really needs is a giant box of Lego, YouTube’s Astonishing Studios has managed to recreate a working version of the classic Nerf Maverick REV-6 blaster using nothing but plastic bricks and a metal spring for power.

The Lego blaster even accepts and fires standard Nerf suction cup-tipped darts, although each one needed to be slightly shaved down in order to squeeze into the gun’s rotating cylinder made from Lego rims. But otherwise, it’s an impressively faithful recreation of the original Nerf toy. [YouTube]
