Will this famous blaster disappear from our stores soon?
First off, don’t panic yet, but there seems to be signs that the Alpha Trooper CS-18 will be, or has, going out of production. A topic arose on the HvZ forums bring some attention to the topic, brought up by user name ArcAngelXVI. Doing a search on the Target website says that their out of stock online and not sold in stores. This may be just a wording error on Target’s part, or it may be a worse scenario. Some people have posted on the Nerf wall that their Targets are still selling Alpha Troopers. I’ll head to Target soon and see what my local Target has in stock, and be sure to keep you updated with the latest rumors regarding this blaster.
Also, feel free to leave a comment and let us readers know if your Target still has them or not.
