Detective Conan's Kaitō Kid's Card Gun Inspires Glow Sticks
posted on by Kim Morrissy
In Detective Conan, Kaitō Kid uses his Card Gun to shoot out decks of cards instead of bullets. It is the phantom thief's most iconic gadget, and he is rarely seen without it.
The card gun has inspired toys before, but now it is taking a step in a more... flashy direction. Premium Bandai has opened pre-orders for a glow stick version of the card gun. The card comes in nine different colors, with can be toggled with the press of a button on the rim of the gun.
Incidentally, you can still use this glow stick card gun as a toy gun: If you press the trigger, the card jumps out.
The gun will cost 4,500 yen (US$41). Pre-orders will last until February 13. Orders are expected to ship in May.
