2013 NYC Toy Fair Internet Nerf Coverage (Photos & Video)

Photo of the Rebelle section, photo thanks to The Toy Spy

I’m not actually at the Toy Fair in NYC, so this is all information thats hit parts of the net. Photos of the Rebelle line, new blasters (Blazin’ Bow and Revonix360!) and a look at a small at a new, un-named Vortex line are all below.

Feb 13, 2013 9:49 PM EST: The Toy Spy’s video look at the Rebelle line. The video is fairly good quality, so I thought I’d post it here.

Feb 10, 2013 5:00 PM EST: Engadget has some nice photos of the Rebelle line on their site. Be sure to check em out!

Feb 10, 2013 3:00 PM EST: Foam From Above gets a demo explanation video on how to load the Revonix360.

Drum does not come out, you load it through a slot on the side and rotate the drum. It was prototype so asked to not fire it, but WILL shoot further than previous vortex.

Feb 10, 2013 2:08 PM EST Photos thanks to Foam From Above. He’s got some mobile shots on his blog, and he’ll put up more shots later.

Feb 10, 2013 8:30 AM EST: Hands on video of the Nerf Cyberhoop. Thanks to Engadget.

Feb 9, 2013 EDIT 11 PM PST: Video from Toy Spy, in which we get a closer look at the Blazin’ Bow and Revonix360. The Blazin’ Bow is fired, but the Revonix360 is not. Also, check out the new designs on the Vortex line. I didn’t see anything about new range claims or anything tooo new about the line, besides the recolors.

Keep reading to see more images, and stay tuned to the blog for more info!

Nerf Dart Tag to Come Back Big in 2013? (Rumor)

I literally don’t have any sources or sites to confirm this. My source was of the type of “he said she said” type of the deal. However the person I talked to managed to get this rumor through seemingly solid circumstances in the situations they described. Nerf Dart Tag is coming back in a, I would say big way. There will also be some new, but familiar aspects to it.

The source I also talked to said that we would be getting 4 new blasters for this line, which I also have solid descriptions of. However, please just remember that this is all just a rumor for now. If this comes true, this will be a sort of reference post, and perhaps I’ll be able to reveal more information on this IF it is indeed true or even teased.
For now, look out for the London Toy Fair Feb 22-24! Perhaps we’ll get some new Nerf info then.

The Nerf Dart Tag Snapfire 8 Preview (Photos)

(HASBRO/Ages 8 & up/Approx. Retail Price: $14.99/Available: Fall 2012)
The NERF DART TAG SNAPFIRE 8 blaster features one-hand firing, an essential element when players are on the move during competition battle. This semi-automatic blaster allows competitors to load darts into the front and then cock and fire darts as the front barrel revolves with each trigger pull. The DART TAG SNAPFIRE 8 blaster also enables players to adjust the tension level for increased speed and distance. Includes 8 Velcro tipped DART TAG darts. Available at most major toy retailers nationwide and on HasbroToyShop.com.

Foam From Above reported this as being the only physical new Nerf blaster at the New York 2012 toy fair.

Most notably, the only new blaster on hand was the Snapfire 8. 8 shots, Dart tag line, and a trigger pull primes the blaster, rotates the turret, and there is a bottom dial on the handle to determine range vs. rate of fire.

I wonder how effective this will be in Dart Tag games?

And heres a small video of it, which doesn’t really do it justice.
