Thanks to the USA blog Buffdaddy Nerf and his research, we’re now aware of upcoming Elite and Rebelle blasters! And while we don’t have photos for many of them, we do have names and web listings, including possible price points. And what’s this about Nerf/Hasbro losing an upcoming Rebelle blaster? What sort of blaster is shown above? Check out the rest of the post for all that.
Early last week, Amazon Spain put up a listing for the N-Strike Elite Rhino. In the listing, we got details as to what the blaster was and what it will come with. And now, I have a press release info to share with you all!
NERF N-STRIKE ELITE RHINO-FIRE Blaster
(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $99.99/Available: Fall 14)
Dominate the competition with the biggest, baddest NERF blaster yet! The N-STRIKE ELITE RHINO-FIRE blaster is the first fully automatic NERF blaster featuring rapid-fire, double barrel blasting, an amazing 50 dart capacity and two N-STRIKE ELITE dart drums, turning ordinary battles into extraordinary ones. The epic RHINO-FIRE blaster sends darts soaring impressive ELITE distances of up to 90 feet, and features both a front handle for mobility and tripod to ensure awesome accuracy. Includes 50 N-STRIKE ELITE darts. Six “D” batteries required, not included. Available exclusively at Walmart.
And most recently, a firing test of the blaster at an unknown event has surfaced. I downloaded it and reuploaded it to Youtube in case it was taken off Instagram.
As we can see from the video above, it’s a flywheel blaster. The barrels seem to fire one after the other. The user’s thumb in the video seems to be on a switch or module of some sort. Maybe we can control which barrel fires the darts?
While the Rhino-Fire is certainly a spiritual successor to the Vulcan EBF-25, the $99.99 (or $100) price point will make this a very expensive blaster to buy. The need for 6 D batteries increases the cost even more. This will be the most expensive blaster Nerf has released for retail when it hits stores. Previously, it was the Stampede ECS released for $49.99.
I’ll be sure and report if other countries will be selling this as well. Do you plan on getting one yourself? Is this price justified?

Thanks to many online, I was made aware that Nerf’s big 4 Fall 2014 blasters are now being sold on Amazon for their suggested retail prices. You can buy all of them right, except the CAM ECS-12 blaster. Amazon lists it coming out August 15. Singapore Nerfers can check the rest of this post for a bit of good news as well!
I ordered myself a Demolisher and Slingfire, so look out for my coverage on that in the future.
June 26, 2014 EDIT: Slingfire is currently sold out on Amazon. I’ll try and keep you all updated if/when comes back in stock.
In the next bit of news, Toys R Us stores across the USA are starting to release the Fall 2014 blasters. You can see most, if not all, of them in the photo I took above of my local Toys R Us. I got myself a Messenger blaster, you can view the unboxing below.
And last but not least, the Demolisher is now being sold in Singapore! There are unboxing videos and photos of it, but I’ll save that for another post. You Singapore Nerfers be sure to enjoy this blaster.
Today’s bit of news is brought to you by Foam From Above and Amazon. Thanks to Vas and some Instagram searching, it appears that the Rebelle Spylight has been already possibly released. Remember that this blaster, as well as other Nerf blasters, are supposed to be released in Fall 2014.
The user “marqueetom” apparently managed to get his hands on the blaster. He hasn’t answered how or where he’s gotten it though. Looking through his photos it appears he’s in Southern California, so if that’s the case I should take a look around and see if I can find one myself.
The other bit of small news is that thanks to Amazon Canada, we have some box art photos, as well as more promo photos and product descriptions of the Rebelle Spylight and Rebelle Messenger Blasters. You can not buy them yet, but those have prices for the Canadian Dollar for you Canadian Nerfers. You can check those out below if your interested.

Thanks to the Nerf Sub-Reddit, we now have the heads up on a new Nerf item, the Z-Bat made by Perpetual Play Group. It’s being sold on Amazon by a 3rd party seller for $34.99. However, thanks to theNerfJoker and his video below, he revealed in the comments that he got his at a Target in the USA for $14.99 plus tax. You can see his overview of it below.
There still aren’t too many details on it that are known, such as durability and how solid it is. However it is about the length of the Zombie strike Machete.
Thanks to the fan site Nerf UK, and Hasbro UK additionally for the graphic above, UK Fans get a confirmation that the Zombie Strike Line will be reaching their shores in January 2014!
However, Amazon UK has already put up items from the line to purchase! You can view what they have for sale so far here. The Hammer Shot, Sledge Fire, Crossfire Bow, and 30 Pack of Zombie Strike darts can be purchased from Amazon.
