In a bit if a surprising twist yesterday, Gamerboy1659 of the popular Facebook group Nerf Modders Welcome posted what looks like normal Mega Magnus boxart. The photo shows just a Magnus boxart, minus the blaster. What’s interesting is that instead of the usual Magnus up to 85 feet advertised ranges, this one advertises up to 95 feet!

There isn’t any other information from Isiah on where he got it from, or how much it costs. But based on previous Nerf trends it should cost the same, or about the same, as a normal Magnus blaster. While a 10 foot range increase isn’t super dramatic, it’s another step closer to the 100 foot ranges of the Mega Centurion. More range for the same price, in the same package is also another positive thing most of the tine. I’ll keep you updated on where he got it from, it’s cost, and other new information I can get related to it.

I wonder if the upcoming Mega Bigshock will feature Mega XD ranges as well? Again based on previous behavior from Nerf, it would be very odd for them to make/brand a new line and NOT include more blasters into it. So I personally expect some upcoming Mega blasters to be put into this line.

UPDATE: Gamerboy1659 has put up a video review of the Magnus XD blaster. I haven’t had the chance to watch it, so I’m not sure what he goes over in it.

Target.com has recently put up a web listing for the Mega Magnus blaster. For us USA people, that means that we should be getting this hopefully sooner then later. If you go to the web listing, there’s a “Find in a Store” option you can use to check Target stocks in your Zip Code. $14.99 is the online price for this blaster.

The product description, found below, is pretty short and to the point.

Upcoming Nerf Mega Magnus Already Released in Hong Kong

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.

Yesterday, Singapore Modder PSYK released an unboxing video of the upcoming Mega Series Magnus.

November 3, 2013 6:40 PST Edit – I’ve received a bit of clarification for the photos and blaster used in Point number 8. You can check that for an update. I also received a possible answer to where PSYK got his Magnus from, and edited that info into Point 2 of the post.

EDIT #2: PSYK elaborated with me a little bit more on how he came across his Magnus blaster. That’s been edited into Point #3.
