Ambush Rip Rockets was a short-lived Nerf theme that ran in 1995. The series featured three blasters which were very small and compact, and had rather unique functions that focus on stealth and unexpected shots. Its predecessor series were the Rip Rockets and Hyper Rip Rockets lines, and the series began and ended within the same year. Some of the blasters were re-released in 2000 with updated box artwork. This was the last of the Rip Rockets series.
