Once again, it seems like Nerf is releasing new products in time for the holidays, and these blasters are their release choices. You can do a store check on these sites in order to see what stores have them. Many in my location don’t have them yet though.
The Magnus blaster has also been spotted in some areas on the East Coast in the USA as well.
Check the rest of the post for Target product shots and product descriptions of the Sidestrike and Crossfire.

Thanks to user Gavinfuzz of the Nerf Sub Reddit, and Toys R Us Japan, we have a small look at a new kind of dart coming in the future. It’s the old, classic, Suction Dart, but it’s now attached to an Elite Dart body. Below is the Google Translated description of in the listing.
Sucker type micro darts 30 bullet set ultimate version that corresponds to the blaster elite series of all. ※ There is the case that is slightly different image and the actual product.
The Release Date on the listing is 2014/03/20. That’s March 20, 2014. Which is a bit of a ways off from now.
Take note that the package features the selling point “Suction Darts work with all N-Strike Elite blasters.” If that’s the case, then it should work with the Clip/Mag fed blasters like the Retaliator, Rampage, Rapidstrike, etc etc. That most likely means that the suction heads on these upcoming darts will be smaller then the normal suction darts. Hopefully this means more weigh and/or better ballistics, so that these darts fly straighter and give us better accuracy.

The single blaster from the Rebelle Power Pair features a new color scheme/paintjob/deco.
Very recently, a new listing for the Angel Aim appeared on the Toys R Us website. In case you needed a reminder, the Power Pair featured a diffent paint job and came with an additional blaster to complete the pair.
The Toys R Us website listing price for the Angel Aim is $6.99. A bit high when you consider the Power Pair is going for $12.99 on the website.
As for it’s new colors, it’s a bit more bright then most of the other Rebelle paintjobs. I liked the purple, pink, and black colors that the Rebelle line had originally featured much more then this new paintjob.
Toys R Us has put up an online listing for an exclusive new Rebelle item, the Golden Edge Bow. It’s a recolor of the Heartbreaker “Phoenix and Vine bows. The online listing also claims that it comes with 5 unique Golden Edge darts.
My initial thought is that this item is pretty dang bright on the eyes, but I’m glad that their giving everyone more color options for people to buy. More options is almost always nice. Product description and another image below.
You’re the guardian angel when you take aim with the Nerf Rebelle Golden Edge Bow! Load your rapid-firing crossbow and watch the golden wings on its bow arms flex as it fires darts up to 75 feet. Just pull the string back to flex your angelic wings. When the green indicator shows, release the string to launch your Golden Edge dart at the included target with pose and power! Keep track of your darts in the removable dart storage accessory. You’ll get fast-flying dart action and quick, bold blasting with the Golden Edge bow!
Includes Golden Edge bow, 5 Golden Edge darts, dart storage accessory, target and instructions.

Thanks to MyLastDart for the heads up.
Let’s be real, who doesn’t like sales and deals, especially when it comes to your favorite hobby? I’m looking online and in stores for them quite a bit, so I figured why not share the information with my readers? Since I live in the USA, the information will be based on USA store sales. I’ll keep you updated mostly on 4 major stores, Kmart, Target, Toys R Us, and Walmart. I’ll also be including Amazon sales for a total of 5 places. Other store listings will be included if they are nationwide or at the very least on a big scale. Special deals such as buy one, get one will be included here as well. I plan on updating this page least once a week. Stay tuned to my Twitter page and Facebook page for updates on the sales.
Items must be on sale below the normal suggested retail price for them to make it on this page. So for example if Toys R Us has the Retaliator being sold for $49.99, and it’s being marked down on “sale” for $39.99, I’m not going to post that “sale”. The suggested and normal retail price for that blaster is $26.99, and most stores have them for around that price.
If readers want to contact me with sales they see in there stores/country/state/, I’ll be happy to post them on this page. I’ll be sure to give them credit for sharing it. But please have the sale match the criteria mentioned above.
You can view the Sales & Deals page right here, or simply look up at the top and find the new page right under the “Home” link. The page is under construction right now, but Target and Kmart sales are up. I suggest you check out Kmart, they seem to be having a “buy one N-Strike item, get the other free” advertisement up. I personally plan on taking advantage of that.
Spotted this in Southern California recently.
Remember that Strongarm Double Dark listing I put up? Toys R Us has updated their site listing to include a picture of the Strongarm Double Darts deal. I’ve also seen it in stores myself.
They’ve also put up a listing for the Firestrike Double Darts deal. In the description it says “NER FIRESTRIKE PRO”. I would have have just taken it as a typo or not thought much of it, but MyLastDart seems to be hinting theres more to it then that. Could N-Strike Elite Pro or N-Strike Pro be this upcoming newer line that he hinted to which surpassed 75 feet? Only time will tell it seems.
A possible recolor in stores for the Strongarm?
Recently, Toysrus.com has put up a listing for an item called the “Nerf NStrike Elite Strong Arm Double Dark”. This could be a typo error, or maybe it could be a repaint? Whatever the case, the blaster is available to buy online.
Box Art of the Elite Barrel Break IX-2
Thanks to My Last Dart for the heads up on this new bit of Nerf info. It looks like the latest blaster to get the Elite
treatment recolor is the Barrel Break. Following in the similar trend with the “N-Strike Elite Jolt” this is probably just a re-color of the blaster, with no performance gain. It still has the N-Strike name on the box, and the same N-Strike logo. The Toys R Us price is $24.99 though, and while it’s not out yet, the Toys R Us site puts the pre-order delivery date at 02/22/2013 (February 22, 2013). Product features are below.
The Barrel Break IX-2 is a double-barrel blaster!
Fire one Elite dart at a time or unleash both barrels at once!
Includes 10 Elite Darts.
Elite Darts work with any N-Strike Elite blaster (sold separately).
It’s a bit disappointing that they won’t be bringing back the Dart Holder that came with the original Barrel Break. I’d rather just get a Rough Cut to be honest. Click here to view the Toys R Us listing for the Barrel Break IX-2.
Check below for the Toys R Us listing and pre-order shipping date of the long awaited Dart Tag Snapfire 8.

As soon as the Argos catalog revealed the Elite Alpha Trooper and Dart Tag Stinger, I immediately hit my public relations contact to get any more info about the upcoming products.
The Dart Tag line in the US is exclusive to Toys R Us now. The products they carry and when they’re on shelves will vary by location, so check your local stores to find out what they are carrying. The Elite Alpha Trooper blaster will be a Target exclusive, which like all things will also vary by location and region.
The Elite Pinpoint Sight was a promotion in the Malaysian markets and there aren’t yet plans to bring it here.
In addition to the above info, I also asked if the Elite Stockade and Dart Tag Snapfire 8 were still coming to the USA, but my contact hasn’t been able to give me more info on those things. I’m glad we’re able to get some more solid confirmation about the Elite Alpha Trooper, I’m sure it’ll sell just as well as the first one. Still no news on a release date, or even a rough release date, but I’ll keep asking about that.
Feb. 1, 2013 EDIT: I’ve gotten word that the Elite Alpha Trooper should be getting released in the USA in the Spring. Maybe it’ll be close to the UK’s release date of March 1?
Hopefully the Nerf folks take another look at the Elite Pinpoint sight and the USA market, because again I believe that it’ll sell well.
