Customer Reviews

So yes, I highly recommend The NERF VORTEX LUMITRON.

Despite these minor complaints, I feel that this product is still very well designed as a whole and pretty fun to play with.
D. Truong
Having a clip that actually lights up to charge the glow in the dark discs is an awesome idea.

This is a sweet toy gun! This video is a demo of what the gun does and how the power (or lack of power) affects it. I apologize for the choppiness - it was hard to hold this massive gun and hold a video camera at the same time! Still, I think it gives an accurate idea of what you're gonna get with this thing. I also will post a couple pics of the gun for some close up looks at the lights and also to see just how massive this is. Enjoy!

Holy Cow! The NERF VORTEX LUMITRON is a blast! When I pick out this toy, I thought that maybe my eldest daughter (14) *might* like it. But the moment it arrived, my husband and youngest daughter (6) rushed for it. Soon they had it opened and ready to go. But what to shoot at? Let's just say our house is a "target-rich environment." My youngest produced a number of rubber ducks which she lined up on an ottoman. My eldest stood and watched while the other two took turns and I watched distractedly from my computer. Soon, however, I overheard the eldest saying, "Say hello to my little friend!" I turned around to see her taking her own turn against the ducks. By now, they had added a small metal mailbox to the mix, and they were trying to shoot the ducks into the mailbox. This went on until dinner time and for several evenings thereafter.

I confess that I never even touched the thing - until yesterday. But I wasn't shooting at no ducks. I don't know what came over me, but I saw it laying there and I picked it up. Looking for a worthy target, and I am embarrassed to admit this, I spotted my husband's head. He was watching the news. The first three shots were high and to the right, but the fourth one hit him right on the neck. Only then did he take the threat seriously and protect himself. Where's the fun in that?

So yes, I highly recommend The NERF VORTEX LUMITRON. I can't compare it to others since this is my first such product, but my entire family loves it. Including me. I just prefer hunting live targets. ;-)

I ordered this for my almost-five year-old son. He got it for Easter since there is no better way to celebrate Jesus' return from the grave than to run around shooting things with a nerf gun - at least that is the way I see it. I was a little worried that the gun might be too difficult for him to use but so far he has done very well with it. Loading the magazine hasn't proved too difficult and the glow in the dark disks shoot very well. I don't know if I'd say they are accurate to 35' but that really isn't important with a gun like this. In fact, I'd argue that too much accuracy in a toy gun like this might be a bad thing.

Just running down the basics, the glow in the dark charger works well in the magazine. You can also charge them up in sunlight as well, and a black light also works well. I'd also add that a 405nm laser works very well also. The XLR disk bullets are excellent. Not too soft or lightweight, but not dangerous at all. Even our 10 lb. Pomeranian doesn't seem fazed by getting shot with them, and he tolerates the occasional random shot quite well. We don't let the kids shoot AT the dog, but sometimes a stray disk goes his way. Another nice thing is that they don't have enough mass or velocity to break things easily either. So far no vases knocked off of bookshelves and grandma is safely in her urn on top of the fireplace mantel even though she has taken a few hits.

We have lost a few of the disks, and it couldn't hurt to have some spares, but overall this is a great gun for us 2nd Amendment loving families to let our younger children play with. I would note that our 3 year-old daughter cannot operate the gun yet, but 5 years old seems to be the turning point to be able to use this gun effectively.

Overall I'd give it 5 stars, there are some imperfections but the general playability is excellent and it is a well-designed and COOL gun!

While I do not own the Lumitron, I do own the Praxis, and after a cursory inspection of the images and description, I wanted to do a comparison.

The mold of the gun is almost identical to the Praxis, except for the label on the front, and the body is recolored. However, that may not be a bad thing, as the Lumitron is therefore compatible with the stock of the Praxis. Thus for those who already have a Praxis, this gun is compatible with the same accessories.

However, it is the clip and ammunition that set this gun apart. The clip adds a lighting effect similar to the N-Strike Firefly, except passive, and the glow-in-the-dark disks, in conjunction with the light, create a gun optimized for night play. While this certainly adds value, I believe the clip would have better suited as a separate accessory for the Praxis and the Nitron, rather than as an excuse for an overpriced new gun.

Also, while the weight and size of the clip has increased, its ammunition capacity has not. It is still only a 10-disc clip, same as the Praxis. And this gun doesn't even have the rifle stock, which would be necessary to balance out the increased weight of the clip.

So for those who already have the Praxis, this gun isn't really worth it, unless you really want the inter-compatibility of parts (rifle stock, etc.) or the glow effect. However, your money would best be spent searching for ways to improve the Praxis (Nitron clip, tactical rail, etc.).

For the rest of you, this might be a good choice for night play. Otherwise, don't bother--just buy the Praxis.
