Originally this popped up a couple of weeks ago from a leaked source.
The retailers above told me to stay tuned to their new catalogue launches and Argos's Saturday launch - true enough, a fan sent pictures of the catalogue early this morning to UK Nerf blog.
I also spoke to SmythToys.com and Amazon.co.uk, who told me to stay tuned to their catalogues and online sites. So i'm positive we can expect some awesome new range blasters to hit the web shortly.
|Argos.co.uk lists new Elite Alpha Trooper in new catalogue launch|
|Argos.co.uk lists a new Dart Tag Stinger blaster in new catalogue launch|
This is very much inline with plans for official Nerf Stores under the banner of 'Quest'. Their plans for store tournaments, Store vs Store and National tournaments is looking to take a step in the right direction.
The Elite Alpha Trooper is set to come with a cs-12 dart magazine.
This is very much a loved old blaster, many started off with it as a first, so it's great to see some Elite love. What this means for internals? I hope it means new smart internal mechanisms rather than a dreaded rehash.
Whos excited for this ?
