Nerf Elite Sonic Ice blasters hit US ToysRUs online

Thanks to ToysRUs for the heads up on this. The Nerf Elite Sonic Ice range goes up online!

Thanks to the good folks at TRU PR for giving me the heads up of the online listings for the new Nerf Elite Sonic Ice range. Details as follow:

Nerf N-Strike Elite Sonic Ice Hail-Fire
SKU: F11381A5
Our Price: $39.99
(How fans complete the Sonic Ice Hail-Fire clips we don't know... new kit on the way?)


SKU: 09F17A87
Our Price: $39.99


SKU: C4A84D6F
Our Price: $39.99


What is interesting and rather odd, is that they are all marked as the same price. Typical TRU pricing strategy, but I have to say I am drawn to the sonic-iceyness of these blasters.

Real shame that they will not be producing a Rough Cut anytime soon. TRU said they would most likely trial sales and if there is enough demand, they would commission further models. Unfortunately a majority of fans think the other way around TRU - give us choice and a welcome price point and then we will think about it.

It is also worth noting that TRU HK have taken down their listings for the Sonic Ice Rampage and Retaliator. I asked them why they took the blasters down, their response was that it was a trial sale, and the US stores will have them as an exclusive. Lucky, lucky US fans!


So who is still on the fence about these? Up close they look very inviting...

  1. They've been available in my local Toys R US for some time (Edmonton, Canada) I grabbed all three during a 20% off sale. I really enjoy the priming mechanisms on the Retaliator and the Rampage as they seem smoother than the regular ones (I have 2 regular rampages and 4 retaliators)

    1. Hey Alan thanks for the comment man, interesting the Rampage seems smoother. Maybe it's the plastic type?

  2. Hey, not to be that guy, but you have it saying Rampage where it should say Hail-Fire.

    But these look absolutely sweet.
