Kmart Puts Up New N-Strike Elite Version of the Zombie Strike Sidestrike

spin_prod_1092481712

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.

In this video, I go over the Sidestrike Holster a bit more. I talk about different places to put it, show different blasters that can fit in it, and go over it’s build quality.

Also if your interested, you can view my unboxing and range test videos on the Sidestrike here.

Nerf Zombie Strike Sidestrike Unboxing & Range Test Videos

I’ve got two new videos up today! Their an unboxing and range test video of the Zombie Strike Sidestrike. You can view the unboxing video above, which also contains a small firing test and my initial thoughts on the blaster. Below you can find a range test video of the blaster.

I can talk a lot more about the Holster that comes with the blaster, so I decided to make that another separate video. I’ll upload that one later.

San Diego Comic Con 2013 just happened this past week, and apparently Nerf had their new Zombie Strike line there, featuring products that hadn’t yet been revealed at the time. Before I get around to the images, I have to thank naazrael of Reddit for posting some of the photos, and also Jet with her blog Blaster By My Side.


Atamaii.com was also there on hand to get a video overview of the products on display. If your not into photos, I recommend checking the video.

We get a photo of the actual physical product for the Zombie Strike Target Set. It’s a recolored/repaint Jolt, so Nerf fans with the Jolt already might want to pass to on it.

Do you see that skull design and the items in the box with the plastic see through? The skull design is a the bandanna that Nerf will be selling, and the item in the box is the Zombie Strike Starter Kit. The bandanna will be a Target exclusive, and will retail for $4.99 USD. The Zombie Strike Starter Kit comes with one Z-Bomb, one Zombie bandanna, and two Zombie Wristbands. The Zombie Strike Starter Kit retails for $14.99 USD.

The two photos above show off more new upcoming products. In the first one, something called “Z-Bombz” are pictured. Many people are speculating that their Nerf attempt to “replace” socks in Humans vs. Zombies. They come in about 5 different variants, what looks like a Grenade/bomb, Brick, a Sawblade a Football-like object, and a “Limited edition” grenade/bomb from the Zombie Strike Starter Kit.

A photo of the Holster on display that comes with the Sidestrike. Note the N-Strike Elite logos on both the holster and Sidestrike. Did these start off as Elite products, before making their way into the Zombie Strike line?

Those are pretty much all the new products for us to see at the moment. If you want, I’ve also embedded most of Naazreal’s and Jet’s photos below on blasters that have already been revealed, but I highly recommend checking out Jet’s recap post on her blog for more info.

As revealed by Io9 earlier today, and confirmed by a press release sent to me today, the Zombie Strike line is now officially acknowledged by Nerf, and more products from the line were revealed, as well as their anticipated release months in the USA.

The Hammershot and Sledgeshot have already been revealed by Target, but here they are again along with official product descriptions and targeted release months.

The zombie apocalypse is on its way and Hasbro’s NERF ZOMBIE STRIKE line has landed just in time!
Fans can reenact their favorite, action-packed zombie scenes, plan for epic battles against the undead and hone the skills necessary to ensure the survival of the human race. The debut ZOMBIE STRIKE lineup, featuring the multi-shot SLEDGEFIRE blaster and the front loading HAMMERSHOT blaster, is available exclusively at Target this fall and features all new zombie-influenced deco and designs. In an epic battle of the living vs. the living dead, NERF NATION will have the edge.

Blaster comes with three NERF SHELLS and nine NERF ZOMBIE STRIKE darts. Available exclusively at Target.

After launching as a Target exclusive in late 2013, the NERF ZOMBIE STRIKE line will expand in 2014 to a full line of blasters, bows and foam swords designed for epic battles against undead and available at most major retailers nationwide! Additions include the FUSEFIRE blaster, which blasts zombies with glowing VORTEX discs day or night, and the authentic CROSSFIRE bow with 75 foot N-STRIKE ELITE distance.
