The word who became an abbreviation, the abbreviation who became a meme, the meme who defied the blue box. It's official folks, Queefslime Quickstrike is now officially branded to the blue box (revival era) starting with a fashionable QS on the Entourage SB releasing early next year.
The term Quickstrike however didn't always start in such a subtle state of affairs or candid environments. It was originally crafted as a sort of spur of the moment design to fill a months premium release, usually in the time frame of 3 months. However many sites, including ourselves just dubbed the premium release as a Quickstrike even though they were planned months, even years prior (Loons / Neon Jpacks).
So now the term has an official place in all of our hearts and in front of our eyes on some of the most sought out releases in the coming months. Clever marketing? Perhaps, but to me it's kind of a symbol of SB putting aside their ego and placing an ear to the synergy that drives the brand, you- the consumer.
