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. Nerf hasn’t confirmed or denied any of those guesses on the photo comments, but instead asks people to just wait and see.
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!
Josh and Shawn speculate on the new Rapid Strike, Revonix360, and Mega Centurion.
Josh and Shawn of Bay Arena Nerf release their latest podcast episode, in addition to the above topics they talk about accessories, possible items that come with the blasters, and even more!
A UK site lists the Mega Centurion coming out 5/10/13, but a May release wouldn’t make sense because we would have been seeing advertising for a big Nerf product coming out a month from now. If you instead use 10/5/13 as a release date, October 5, 2013 makes more sense for a product coming out. The image their also using on their site is from MyLastDart’s website, which makes their listing a bit shady in itself.
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.
“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”
“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.”

Shops.ch Revonix360 listing
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.
