Props to Chris Cartaya for this scoop. We first heard about this range back reader cpx from China mailed images of accessories he got his hands on.
Since then, we have had confirmation of the Nerf Elite Sonic Ice Retaliator and the Nerf Elite Sonic Ice Rampage as part of the upcoming range. With much controversy over whether this is actually worth it / needed from fans, I can personally say that some of the previous 'Clear the way' series have been pretty shocking (in a bad way). Will I pick them up? Not really, tho I do find them appealing. In a recent comment Hasbro said that the cost of plastic prevents them from looking further into accessories. If they stopped pumping this needless stuff, then maybe fans will recoup their expensive plastic costs. Right?
This for me is more of a "grab it in the sales" than gotta have it now. I don't know about you, but I have much bigger fish on the radar to pick up first. It's something different, it might be a waste of time for some fans but for collectors it's much worth the investment.
It's not confirmed if there are any new blasters in the range on the back of the Sonic Ice Hail-Fire edition - many fans are hoping that we see a Rough Cut in the range for them to complete a Sonic Ice Masterkey.
I personally have been wanting to make one myself (anyone got a decent guide please let me know!), but the deco art on the Sonic Ice would definitely make for one funky Masterkey :)
They are retailing for around $29.99 - some 5$ cheaper than the existing Nerf Elite Hail-Fire ($34.99? Odd. Yep.
So let us know if you be picking up any of the Sonic Ice range or if it is not worth it
