|Nerf Elite P.A.K accessory $9.99 @Target DPCI: 087-11-0362|
"Introducing the "Range P.A.K.", which stand for Precision Action Kit. This is the first we've seen of the accessories that were supposed to come from Hasbro licensing out the Nerf name to other companies.
Basically it's a pouch designed to carry five of the 12-dart magazines and some loose darts on the outside. The price at Target was $10. All I can say is it's about time stuff like this came out, but they should have made it for the 18-dart magazines."
Close but no cigar Hasbro! It packs a healthy 5x CS-12 clips, which is not a bad thing, but for those veterans with a batch of CS-18 clips this isn't going to cut it. UNLESS they start to sell CS-12 clips individually..? Fans will remember that the original PAK actually came with 50 CS camo darts, and many users complained that the fabric lost it's shape due to over stretching. Need we fear the same thing... again?
The promising thing is that we are seeing a investment to more accessories - which should be praised and encouraged. It has been reported you can get a couple of 25 dart drums in there too. At some point we all had a ton of CS-12 clips from buying certain blasters (who doesn't have multiple Retaliators?), and it would not hurt to pick them up and encourage sales and stats fans DO want accessories and that they DO sell - yeah, screw you TRU for telling Hasbro fans don't buy accessories, and fans don't want accessories. #1 example would be Hasbro not thinking retailers will stock the EPPS in the States+++ or any other single sales accessory.
The strap on the back is interesting - it's either for a belt or integrate with a new Tactical Vest? Wouldn't that be something. Actually why the hell not? Hasbro seem to be catching us all off guard right now.
Right now, the DPCI code is not showing anything online right now, but they are in store. Be sure to call ahead if you can to avoid being disappointed - that goes for much of the new stuff rolling out.
