Thanks to The Nerdist for the exclusive reveal! The Nerf world now has new information on the upcoming Nerf Zombie Strike “Doominator”. Their description and post on this blaster is as follows.
Nerf must have been taking Tom Hardy pretty seriously when they developed their latest foam-dart-launching terror, The Zombie Strike Doominator. Looking like a modified M23 Grenade Launcher, the Doominator has four revolving dart drums that hold 24 darts It looks like the rotating drums use the same rotation mechanic developed for the FlipFury hand guns. The action lever also provides a quick reset for the next dart, a la the excellently designed SlingFire rifle.
The Doominator will be available at most major retailers and HasbroToyShop.com for $39.99 in the fall of 2015. It’s a must add for any Nerf arsenal enthusiast.

Another day, another recolor am I right?
Kmart’s site has put up a listing of an Elite Version Sidestrike. In case you needed a reminder, the Sidestrike first originated as a Zombie Strike blaster. This Kmart exclusive, 2 Pack version retails for $24.99 on the side, comes with 12 Elite Darts, and lacks the holster that normally comes with the Zombie Strike version of the blaster.
I like how one one blaster is the old Elite color scheme, and the other is the new Elite color scheme though. Probably worth passing on it, unless your a newer player who wants to pick up a simpler blaster for yourself and another.

Kohls has recently put up a web listing for a package deal featuring the Zombie Strike Slingfire and the N-Strike Elite Rampage’s 25 Dart Drum. The drum has had some positive feedback from Nerfers for it’s smaller size, and better feeding then the previous Raider’s 35 darm drum.
Although the combo package is welcome, the price is a bit too high for most people’s preference. $59.99, and it’s “on sale” for $47.99 at the moment. For reference, a Slingfire usually retails for $19.99, and a Rampage for $27.99. Those too things combined are already less then this Kohls package, and you get more from buying them separately.
Kohls members who have a membership cards may be able to get this for a lower price, and the price may lower in the future, so don’t entirely discount this package out.

Video Recap is your more of an audio/visual sort of person.
Thanks to the German/Dutch fan site dartblaster.de, we have an overview video and heads up on a new Zombie Strike blaster called the Clear Shot. It’s a reshell/repaint of the 2009 Dart Tag Stormfire. It also features a similar scope similar to the one on the Super Soaker Shot Blast. The reviewer also mentions that by looking at the internals, it seems that it doesn’t get Elite Ranges. A bit of a shame that Elite Ranges still aren’t the standard for some blasters.
Also looking at the box art, their’s a Target Exclusive design on it, so USA people should expect this to be a Target Exclusive.
You can view some photos of the blaster here.
