Weapon Review:
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®.
