Nerf Stingers painted Rayvens popping up more….. you seen them?
Received a pre-Toy Fair package from Nerf, and this is what it had! A lot of this is in circulation already, EXCEPT the firevision flyer!
I will see this at Toy Fair too, so tomorrow we go!
In the box:
Nerf N-Strike Elite:
See you at Toy Fair!
Some video on the Nerf N-Strike Elite Hailfire at its launch in NYC:
Batteries: 4 AAs
Ammo: Streamlines (original, or new “Elite” version)
Range: Up to 75′ (assuming usage of Elite streamlines)
- 8 magwells on a rotating carousel, loaded with anything from 6-35 round drums (spacing of magwells limits amount of mags of what kind)
- Suggested configuration is 8 x 18 round magazines for a total of 144 shots before having to reload.
- Handle on the front muzzle that rotates the carousel when a mag runs empty
- Tac rails
- Accelerator trigger to start flywheels
- Hooks for bandolier connection
- Transparent jam door
My initial impressions is this thing is ridiculous. It was pretty light for me to handle, and the possible amount of firepower before reloading is more than any other dart blaster I know of. Even the Powerstrike 48 had…. well… 48 shots. Additionally, the range it was getting angled or flat was close to the advertised range from what I could eyeball even though the way you hold the blaster naturally makes it point up. In any event, I can’t wait to get my hands on it in the field and look forward to getting a closer look as the release date approaches. See you all 09/09/12!
The Toy Spy’s gotten a first look at the Hasbro Showroom before the festivities begin tomorrow; if you want to have a look (including Nerf related goodness) make sure to check out his gallery! Scroll down to see the Nerf images.
So, Nerf sent in a Nerf Rayven of my very own! I will have a review shortly, once I put it through its paces. Stay tuned! Also, keep an eye here in February as I am once again making the trip to Toy Fair. Two years in a row now!
