Nerf took to Facebook recently and posted this image, along with the caption ” We’ve got big blaster news coming soon and we need this much space to reveal it! Who’s pumped?”
The comments on the photo on Facebook all started to mention the big leaked blasters, Centurion was the first answer, along with the Rapidstrike and Zombiestrike line. Need hasn’t confirmed or denied any of those guesses on the photo comments, but instead asks people to just wait and see.
The Awesomely Nerf blog recently managed to get in talks with Hasbro Singapore. And as you can see, their saying an August release for the Rapidstrike! I hope the USA gets it a bit earlier or around the same time, this is the blaster I’m most excited for at the moment.
Apparently their using the Rapidstrike to help show off the accessory on the box.
It looks like Nerf is embracing the digital age bit by bit, and the this Mission App Rail Mount that’s been pictured on the back of the Centurion box art is apparently going to be on sale sooner then later it seems. A Baidu user, that Google translated to “Dian ruthless powerful”, got his hands on this new product recently, and took a few photos for all to see.

It’s hard to read the thread where the photos came from, but apparently the item’s isn’t for sale yet. Also mentions that the Android version won’t be supported for a couple of months. How he got it is unclear, because Google Translate can only do so much. Judging by the area in the photos he’s in, I’m going to guess that he’s in some sort of Toy Fair or Toy Event.
Small side note, can we get some official/new images released by Nerf so that I can stop using certain unoffical ones?
So apparently Australia is getting the Mega Centurion in October 2013. Crispy of SOFT did some digging recently, and posted his results.
(Crispy) So after checking with Hasbro AU for current Longshot numbers in Australia, they replied with this.
Unfortunately, Hasbro Australia no longer distributes this particular product.
The new range of Nerf Elite will have a comparable blaster; “The Centurian”, this will be available at retail stores in October 2013.
So, there is out Australian release date for our version of the Centurian. Get Excited.
It seems like his contact misspelled Centurion, but other then that the land down under has a release month now. Thanks to my affiliated site SOFT for breaking this news!

An Instagram user by the username daltontheamazing has somehow gotten his hands on the upcoming Vortex series Revonix360 ahead of time. Foam From Above gave some of his input on it, saying “Anyway, of note is the discs are white (and what looks like a red one?) As opposed to the red/white ones I saw at Toy Fair and the green ones in some of those store photos.”
I personally think it’s just the usual White disks that they have for sale. He answered my question that I left recently.
I’m think this candid photo is of similar fashion to the kid that had the first “Pyragon Review” last May as well. I’ll keep you guys updated if we get anymore news on this.
Josh and Shawn discuss recent leaked blasters, how they can change the game, and announce their Elite Alpha Trooper Give Away contest!
The Elite Alpha Trooper contest is ONLY open to USA Residents. But they talked a good amount about the Rapidstrike and Centurion in this episode, I’m almost always glad to hear my Nerf leak discussion. They talk details on how to enter the contest at the start, but for the contest to be open we have to get their Facebook page to 100 likes.
