Short-Fuze (2004)

sf

The Toys R Us exclusive Night Force multipack was an odd duck, particularly in comparison to its 80s predecessor.

The overall design seems like it would be more applicable to another laser trooper, with its padded upper body. The accessories are another source of oddness. While the idea of a
