Sheldon's Introduction

The Custom Explosher is built with custom-tooled parts to create a cool new take on the original!
It works like the standard model but comes with a Point Sensor for tracking down foes.
And if your opponents are closing in, pop your Baller special and roll out the welcome mat!
Are you the type who's eager to greet opponents near or far with inky hospitality? Then give this set a try!
