NXT shootable accessories from Bionicle & Exo-Force

The New Bionicle Line-up has like always some really good robotic decorations. Light up swords, masks that can be used as catapult spoons and the usual basic of neat feat.
Now add to that list expandable Ammo Clips for ZamoSphere Launchers. if you dont want to mess with large beam intensive trays angled everso slightly and an jamming ever so often (see DAZLR on the MDP page of Mindstorms) - Try the Toa Inika's new stackable and expandable ammo clip.

A side shot in the magazine shows that they use a spine thats bent at a hole ending in axels. So this mounts right to the launcher and can be expanded until the bend makes gravity a problem. THey look like technic angle connectors number 3 which finish the 90 degrees after 4 pieces and they hold 3 shots plus the loaded shot (13 shots).

Also check out Exoforces's Mini Disk shooter along with the adustable technic beams and body panels.

The Disk shooter is on the rear side of the gattling gun and the adjustable angle beams are on the under carraidge.

This also has the disk shooters and a bunch of construction buckets.

Let us know if you've tried these shooting elements. Whats there range, mechanism and reload rate like.

The "energy" disk shooter of the Mobile Defence Tank has some issues, as I found out when I helped my nephew with the build about two weeks ago.

The cylindrical ammo magazine really needs a lid. Without something covering the top, the range is limited and the ammo tends to pop out of the holder.

The solution was obvious, put a piece of clear tape over the top.

The disks don't go more than about a meter, good for shooting at the knees or shins.

My nephew had tons of fun with the disk shooter, so I guess that's what matters.

Thanks for that. It's sometimes needed to keep us going. Recently, I've been working hard at extending the website. I hope to launch a first part pretty soon now.
