In a similar reveal fashion with the Zombie Strike Slingfire, yesterday Nerf gave exclusive photos and the product description to Mania.com. You can check out the product description, pricing, and availability below as well as another shot of the blaster.
The product description has some interesting information if we read carefully. Product description has been fixed. This blaster will fire Mega Darts, not Mega Arrows.
NERF N-STRIKE MEGA THUNDERBOW
(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $39.99/Available: Fall 14)
Awesome NERF MEGA performance transitions from blaster to bow with the addition of the N-STRIKE MEGA THUNDERBOW toy. The bow’s dynamic arms and traditional pull back system can fire five NERF MEGA whistler darts in a row up to an amazing 100 feet. Includes 10 MEGA Whistler darts and holds up to five NERF MEGA darts at a time. Available at most major retailers nationwide and HasbroToyshop.com.
Did you catch that? It says that it includes “MEGA Arrows” and not Mega Darts. It seems that the blaster is holding MEGA Darts though. The first release/draft has this in the description.

If you go to Mania.com those above sentences have been removed, and mentions of darts are changed to arrows. It looks like the bow will be firing the “MEGA Arrow” and not the Mega Darts. However, the correct product description has been sent out. The blaster will fire MEGA Darts, not MEGA Arrows.
I’ll also make a separate post with my thoughts and speculations at a later date.
