Nerf MEGA Thunderbow - and thus we have come full circle in stupidity...

So as many of you are probably aware, Hasbro has announced 2 new blasters in recent weeks, with the latest being the Nerf MEGA Thunderbow:

Having seen the range as it stands at the moment, this leaves me very confused. We started with the centurion, the turd in sheeps clothing. A beautiful blaster, but made of pure evil on the inside. They we were given the Magnus, an wonderful little blaster, if lacking in the capacity department. And now this...

So information is limited at the moment, but so far we've been told:

(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $39.99/Available: Fall 14)Awesome NERF MEGA performance transitions from blaster to bow with the addition of the N-STRIKE MEGA THUNDERBOW toy. The bow’s dynamic arms and traditional pull back system can fire five NERF MEGA whistler darts in a row up to an amazing 100 feet. Includes 10 MEGA Whistler darts and holds up to five NERF MEGA darts at a time. Available at most major retailers nationwide and” 

Operation wise, most are believing the setup to be similar to that of the Roughcut or ZS Crossfire Bow, with the bow arms moving when the string is pulled, somehow priming the internal mechanism or the possibility of a plunger rod being attached to the bow string (the possibility part being that although it's not shown in the pictures, the blaster may not have been assembled properly). However it is my belief that thanks to Hasbro current company policy of making internals as overly complicated as possible, this blaster's internal workings will include time travel and wormholes...

Wibbly Wobbly Plungy Wungy...

So what do you guys think? Is this something you'd like to see in your arsenal or has Hasbro finally jumped the shark in blaster design?
