Ready to get your hands on the huge Nerf Amban Pulse-Phase Blaster? Got a kid at home who’s obsessed with The Mandalorian and just has to have their own replica gun?
I have to admit, the overgrown kid in me wants this so bad. I can definitely see how I could have a ton of fun with my kids if we each had one, too.
I will show you all the features of this sleek, speed-shooting toy from the Star Wars franchise. Then, I’ll give you 3 action-packed alternative Star Wars Nerf guns that I think are equally awesome. Load your ammo, and let’s get started!
Bottom Line Upfront
All in all, I would say the Mando Nerf gun is definitely worth the money. Not only does it look hella cool, but it’s also Nerf, so you’re sure to get the same quality fun you always get. This would make a great gift for your kid, an addition to your Star Wars collection, or an accessory for a Mandalorian cosplay.
Pros and Cons
I know you want the best toys for your little one (or maybe yourself) so let’s dive into the pros and cons. I think what makes the Nerf gun great outweighs what makes it not so great, but let’s see what you think.
- Replicates one of Mando’s blasters
- Official Star Wars merchandise from Hasbro
- Large Nerf gun over 50 inches long
- 10 Nerf darts are included
- Packaged using sustainable packaging
- You may need replacement ammo over time
- One of the pricier Nerf guns
With a general sense of what this toy is all about, it’s time to dig a little deeper. I’ll take you through the key features of the Nerf Amban Phase-Pulse Blaster, so you’ll know what makes this toy unique. Here’s a link to this Nerf gun so you can comb through the product description at your leisure.
When you buy this galactic Nerf gun, you’ll notice 10 official Nerf darts are included. All you need to have fun with a Nerf gun is the toy gun and the ammo, so this is a pretty straightforward gift set.
How Many Pieces
You’ll get 11 pieces in total with the Nerf gun and darts. You could always buy more Nerf darts online or in stores if you need extras. Those little things are always getting lost.
Every piece of the Pulse-Phase Blaster is made from plastic. I think that’s ideal because kids can get hurt on harder materials like metals. The Nerf darts are made from plastic and foam. The darts are pretty squishy, so it doesn’t hurt when you get hit with one of them. Just be sure not to hit someone in the face with a dart.
Did you know this toy is an Amazon exclusive? You can’t be able to buy it new anywhere else, from what I can tell. Amazon offers frustration-free packaging when you buy the blaster from them, which is great because kids don’t want to deal with a million layers of tape and twisty things on their birthday or the holidays.
You might have noticed that this Nerf gun has a heftier price than some others. That’s because of this blaster’s impressive size and Star Wars branding. Still, loads more Nerf guns are way more expensive than this one. Expect to pay anywhere from $50-$60 for the Amban Pulse-Phase Blaster.
This blaster is recommended for kids 14+, partially because it’s more difficult to shoot than some other Nerf guns. Very young children might have trouble reloading the gun and aiming it. Not to mention, this Nerf gun might be bigger than your child. This Nerf gun is a little over 4 feet long, so it will be hard for elementary school children to pick it up and fire it.
The Amban Pulse-Phase Blaster features eye-catching colors like bright orange, yellow, and blue. The colors used here are the same colors used for Mando’s blaster in the T.V. show. No other color choices are available.
After receiving the product, you’ll have a full 30 days to take advantage of Amazon’s free returns policy. Since this is an Amazon exclusive, you’ll have to remember this is the only warranty policy.
Decision Making Tips
Is the Amban Pulse-Phase Blaster the best choice for your child? Or for you, if you’re an avid Star Wars fan? If you’re on the fence about this toy, this last section explaining who this toy is for might help you decide whether to buy it or not.
The minimum age Nerf recommends for this Star Wars gun is 14 years old. Why 14? Well, kids will be kids, and younger kids are more at risk of getting hurt by either hitting each other with the blaster or firing it at someone’s face. Not to mention, very young kids aren’t big enough to pick it up.
To be exact, the Amban Pulse-Phase Blaster is 50.25 inches long! That’s a little over four feet, which is why this Nerf gun isn’t for small children. You need to be nearly an adult just to hold and fire the thing. The awesome size is part of what makes this toy so fun. If you have Star Wars toy displays, this will be a noticeable piece.
Read the safety information and instructions before attempting to use the Nerf gun. If this toy is for your child, make sure they know to never, ever shoot someone in the face. It’s also important your child knows to only fire at others if they are part of the game. I make my littles wear protective eyewear when having a Nerf fight.
Getting More Ammo
It’s easy to get more ammo if your child loses some of theirs and the couch cushions come up empty. Anywhere you can buy Nerf guns, you can buy Nerf ammo. Look at the Amban Pulse-Phase Blaster packaging to be sure you’re picking up the right type of ammo, because there are loads of different kinds nowadays.
Where Do You Buy The Mandolorian Nerf Gun?
Though this Mandalorian Nerf gun is an Amazon exclusive, you can find it on eBay, too. Other customers have bought this blaster from Amazon, and some may sell it to you for a cheaper price on online marketplaces. Check out OfferUp and Facebook Marketplace, too!
Other Alternatives to Consider
While the Mandalorian Nerf gun is already awesome by itself, you may also want to look over some alternative Star Wars Nerf guns. Star Wars has taught us that assessing your options is crucial before making a rash decision, so let’s take a peek at your other options. Who knows? Maybe you’ll find a few different Nerf guns you’d like to pick up for your or your child’s collection.
This awesome Star Wars Nerf rocket gauntlet fits on your arm and fires with the press of a button! What I really love about this design is how Nerf painted cracks and scratches onto the gauntlet. It makes the toy feel more weathered like it really has seen battle across the galaxy. The Nerf Elite Darts that come with this rocket launcher is much larger than normal Nerf darts. That’s part of what makes this one fun, right?

Boom! Fire! This Star Wars Nerf gun has lights and sound effects that transport you to the heat of battle. Oh, and because this one is all about the extra cool features, did I mention the Nerf darts glow in the dark? At least that means they’ll be easier to find again later. Measuring at 17 inches long, the large barrel on this Death Trooper Deluxe Dart Blaster is an impressive size. It’s also quite affordable.

This may be the most expensive Nerf gun I have to show you today, but it also has the sleekest design. It has a scope like a real gun, too, that you can actually use. This option looks the most like the actual guns used in the Star Wars movies, so I think it’s the most believable replica. At 32 inches long, this one is also pretty big. The darts that come with it are higher quality than your standard Nerf dart.
- Price Range: $185-$215
