Upcoming Nerf Mega Magnus Already Released in Hong Kong

1458652_546984395389376_879912112_n

Yesterday, the above photo was posted by a Hong Kong Nerf Facebook fan page. No word on it’s official pricing over there, and I’m wondering if it’s similar to the Canada Walmart price we saw about a week ago. This isn’t the first time that Facebook page has given us new info or had new blaster in that part of the world before. The USA, and possibly other countries, could see this blaster coming out this year due to it coming out over in Hong Kong at the moment.

Again, I’ll keep you all updated as more info on this blaster comes out.

Vortex Revonix360 Candid Photo spotted on Instagram


Screenshot by Foam From Above

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.

The French site Shops.ch once again has give the NIC a bit of a sneak peek more at the upcoming N-Strike Elite Mega Centurion and Vortex Revonix360 blasters. Here’s the original text, and translations for each item.

Centurion Description:

“Le Mega Centurion est un pistolet au look et à la puissance unique : il tire à plus de 30 mètres ! Equipé d un trépied, il est le plus précis de la gamme. Inclus chargeur 6 fléchettes”

“Mega Centurion is a gun to look and unique power: it draws more than 30 meters! Equipped with a tripod, it is the most accurate range. Charger included 6 darts”

Revonix360 Description:

“Un pistolet qui tire 3 disques à une distance de 15 mètres ! Il est équipé d un rail permettant d accueillir les accessoires Nerf.”

“A gun that shoots 3 discs at a distance of 15 meters! It is equipped with a rail for accessories to accommodate the nerve.”

Soundmedia.ch also put up a listing for the Mega Centurion. That’s where I got the image from in this post and simply re sized it to about twice it’s original size. I’ll save my thoughts on this new product image for another post.
As for the Revonux360, I’m a bit confused because the original product description I got makes no mention of it shooting 3 disks. Sure it was mentioned at the Toy Fair that the Revonix360 there was a proto-type, but I feel like the product would have been much more finalized before they sent out a product description of it. We’ll see what the future holds for these products.

New N-Strike Elite Rapidstrike CS-18 photo & some features revealed on Swiss website, My Thoughts on the Blaster

The posted up image from shops.ch, expanded to twice the original size by me.

Yesterday afternoon, a Swiss German site put up a listing for the N-Strike Elite Rapidstrike CS-18. A French version of the same site added the same listing, but with a product description.

Le RAPIDSTRIKE est un pistolet 100 % automatique pour des tirs en rafale : jusqu à 3,6 fléchettes par seconde. Sa batterie est allégée. Elle est 75 % moins lourde que celle du Stampede. Pour une utilisation plus personnalisée, la crosse est ajustable. Contient 18 fléchettes!

or when translated through Google Translate.

Description translated: RAPIDSTRIKE the gun is 100% automatic gunfire burst: up to 3.6 darts per second. Its battery is reduced. It is 75% lighter than the Stampede. For a more personalized, lacrosse is adjustable. Contains 18 darts!

This blaster is most likely what was referred to as the rumored “new Stampede” I posted about on the blog about a week ago. As you read this post, please remember that this is all speculation based off a site listing, it’s photo, and it’s product description. As of March 15, there’s still has been no official confirm or deny of this blaster.

Just take a look at the above photo and take it all in. It’s a very awesome looking blaster to say the least. But it’s going to be a flywheel blaster, based off the comment that MyLastDart left on my blog post about the rumored Stampede. With automatic burst fire, the only other automatic flywheel blaster is the Nerf Vortex Nitron. Of course it might not be a flywheel blaster, but again I’m basing this post on what he said. I’ll talk more about the rate of fire later in the post, and compare it to other blasters later in this post. 3.6 darts per second is not a slow as you think it is.

There’s a clear clip on the blaster, and the darts look different with their black tips. Is this hinting towards new kinds of darts and a new clear clip? You can also see 5 different tactical rails on the blaster. MyLastDart has hinted toward their being an under barrel attachment of sorts that’s going to be released in the future. And it looks like there’s plenty of room on this blaster for that.

It also looks like there’s going to be 3 solid sling points, 4 if you count the stock area loop, on the blaster. This is very important for things like Humans vs. Zombies and indoor games.

There’s ALOT of initial thoughts and speculation going around in the NIC. I’ll list and talk about things like possible pricing, release dates, stock performance, ergonomics, special features, marketing, and more after the jump.

If you don’t feel like reading all the post, I’ve also made a video in which you can also listen to the things I discuss in this post.

Hasbro website reveals N-Strike Elite Bandolier, new Tactical Vest, Prices, and more

Since this is on Hasbro’s site itself, I figure I can post it here. You had to do some searching from their shopping site, but when you do it reveals the items. Personally, I’ve already got myself a good chest rig, so I don’t need the Bandolier or Tactical Vest. The prices on all these items seem reasonable though. I’ve also been on the busy side with trying to figure out my lack of range on my Elite Blasters, so shout out to Shining Foam for gathering and posting the info.

Announcement: No more leaks on Basic Nerf

Nerf’s PR team has contacted me recently about all the leaked photos and video I’ve been posting recently. They have, very kindly I might add, asked me to take it down. I’m ok with this, since Nerf is a company a respect. If people want to have a mutual relationship, it often helps to have both people on the same page. They also send me free blasters, so I think the leak I could do is take down some posts. I know some of you will be disappointed in this, but I need to make some moves that help the blog in the long term.

They did say they would be giving me some N-Strike Elite stuff in a couple of weeks, so keep an eye out here for that ;)
