|Nerf: Ultimate Blaster Book [Hardcover] £13.49 [Amazon.com here]|
I would love to see this become a yearly thing, almost like a collectible for fans - lets see what happens :) I am a little disappointed - for an Ultimate book - there should really be more vintage blasters. Does... this mean we won't see blasters from the very get-go? A concern voiced by many fans i'm sure.
They say it will include new unreleased pics - but I think we already know much of it. Why do I say that? Because they state Nerf Nation has 500,000 Facebook fans. It's actually over 1m. So that tells you the age of information they are using.
It comes with 6 collectible Elite Edition darts. They do look rather accented at the end. It may well be the funky packaging to protect the darts from being crushed. Whatever the case, I know all fans are going to want to pick this on up. Phew, this is going to be one hella Xmas for Nerfers :D
Here are the Amazon listing details:
