|The Mattel® Maximizer®
is the "little brother" weapon of the Mattel® Ultimator®.
Mattel® improved both of the major flaws of the Ultimator® when
making the Maximizer®. First, they improved the accuracy by using smaller
Ballista missiles that fly straight. Second, they improved the rate of fire almost four
times over (from 6.28 seconds to 1.64 seconds). Mattel® accomplished this by
designing the weapon be primed with only one pump.
However, Mattel ended up destroying
the most important features of the Ultimator® when making the Maximizer®.
First, the Maximizer® has about half the range of the Ultimator®.
Also, the Maximizer® is smaller and quieter than the Ultimator®.
Thus, it no longer strikes fear into your enemies.
While it's a nice idea, the Maximizer® really
doesn't compare to the superior Ultimator®.
