Thanks to My Last Dart for the heads up on this new bit of Nerf info. It looks like the latest blaster to get the Elite
treatment recolor is the Barrel Break. Following in the similar trend with the “N-Strike Elite Jolt” this is probably just a re-color of the blaster, with no performance gain. It still has the N-Strike name on the box, and the same N-Strike logo. The Toys R Us price is $24.99 though, and while it’s not out yet, the Toys R Us site puts the pre-order delivery date at 02/22/2013 (February 22, 2013). Product features are below.
The Barrel Break IX-2 is a double-barrel blaster!
Fire one Elite dart at a time or unleash both barrels at once!
Includes 10 Elite Darts.
Elite Darts work with any N-Strike Elite blaster (sold separately).
It’s a bit disappointing that they won’t be bringing back the Dart Holder that came with the original Barrel Break. I’d rather just get a Rough Cut to be honest. Click here to view the Toys R Us listing for the Barrel Break IX-2.
Check below for the Toys R Us listing and pre-order shipping date of the long awaited Dart Tag Snapfire 8.
We finally get a confirmation that this blaster is finally coming to the USA after about a year since it was first revealed. I’ve already imported two of these and let me tell you, this blaster is nice in close quarters combat. Check out the gameplay video of me using it later in this post. The Toys R Us price is also $19.99, and 02/22/2013 (February 22, 2013) is also the pre-order shipping date. Product features below.
Blaster holds 8 DART TAG Darts.
Choose fast, short-range fire or long-range blasting!
No cocking-just pull the trigger and keep firing!
DART TAG Darts stick to DART TAG jerseys (sold separately) for easy scoring.
