NEW Nerf Mega Magnus listing on Amazon.com

No Image right now, but here's a Magnus Pistol from Wahammer 40k
Found this on Amazon.com, the NEW Nerf Megnus pistol blaster. It sounds every bit Mega.

A reader called Kyu Chen mentioned that we would be seeing something new under the name of Nerf Magnus. Aaaand here it is. It is apparently top loading clip based, 3 rounds Mega Whistler blaster. Range is up to 85 feet. Sounds like a Speed Load 6, with Mega darts? I'm down with it, as long as it doesn't chew up the darts....!
Product Description:
"From the Manufacturer Your battles are about to get a whole lot bigger - Mega bigger. The Magnus blaster has the same high performance as other N-Strike Elite blasters, but it features bigger darts engineered to fire farther than ever. Launch Mega Darts at targets up to 85 feet away and dominate the biggest Nerf battle yet with the Magnus blaster. Its built-in, one-handed clip lets you reload fast to get back in the game and it comes with 3 Mega Whistler Darts that scream as they fly. Hit the battlefield with Mega power with the Magnus blaster. Nerf and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro. "



Got to tell you, I'm intrigued about seeing this now, it sounds very much like what SBNC predicted. Kyu Chen has promised to fire over images and internals shortly, so will update as I get the images. I am bit of a loss when it comes to the capacity. Is the whole idea of Mega range to be "high Stock range" with limited capacity? Someone somewhere has got the wrong idea on what fans wanted from this range.

How about you folks, you wondering what it is, or couldn't care less after the Centurion?

  1. Meh, as long as it has modding potential. The capacity doesn't bother me. It would bother me more if they tried to put something as large as the centurion clip in a pistol.

  2. Sounds cool, but with how the centurion turned out, I think I am going to wait for other people to get the Mega blaster first and review them before I go out and buy them.

    1. Just what I was thinking. Judging from the description it should be on the cheap side. Pistol, 3 round capacity, sounds pretty affordable.

  4. Top loading built in clip? Sounds kind of like the nerf dart tag line; maybe the we're looking at a blaster similar to the Speedload 6? Let's hope jamming isn't going to be as much of an issue.

  5. Top loading built in clip? That sounds a lot like the built in clip from the quick 16 or the speedload 6 of the Dart Tag line. Maybe the Magnus is a sort of update to the speedload?

  8. The word "Magnus" is part of my online nickname that I've been using for ~15 years. I need for this blaster to be amazing.

  9. Since Nerf claims this blaster to hit 85 feet, does this means that this blaster will not have a long priming distance? Imagine a pistol with the centurion's priming distance... @_@

  10. Honestly, what good is the range if the accuracy just blows big donkey #@&4? I have the centurion and sure it shoots 80+ ft, but it can't bullseye womprats and they are no bigger than two meters. my pyragon is more accurate at 60 feet.

  11. Honestly, I would rather see them fix the accuracy problem with the darts than flood the market with blasters that can't bullseye a womprat at 60 feet. Sure they shoot far but after ten feet you can watch the dart take on a drunken mind of it's own. Maybe the pistol will be more accurate. (Fingers crossed)

  12. So...just tried a search on Amazon for this...and nothing popped up. So, either they removed the listing, or I screwed up my search parameters.

  13. As a self-confessed WH40k addict, i'm going to have to correct you on the picture. The pistol you have pictured is, in fact, called a Bolt Pistol.

    WH40k aside, new Nerf stuff is always a good thing. maybe we'll even get a direct plunger this time

  15. This sounds really cool. I will never buy the Centurion, but I might consider this if it didn't have a reverse plunger.

    It probably will not come out this year because someone pointed out that the Mega Dart refill pack said "Additional Mega Series blasters coming Spring 2014." But you never know; MLD said the "Top Secret" blasters (aka Mega Series) would all be coming out 9/9/13 but only the Centurion did.

    I am confused as to why this blaster claims to reach 85 feet and not 100. I would think that the same series would have the same ranges, but I seem to be wrong.

    Also, MLD said that there will be 3 Mega Series blasters. This is the third one, as the Centurion is already released, and the Javelin was leaked about earlier.

  21. The top load is different than the speedload. You could load that while the blaster was primed while the fight went on. This appears to use the jam door as the loading point. That means that while it's primed you won't be able to top off rounds. You'll probably be able to only load three darts, fire them all and start over. Huge problem in my book. Also the fact that there aren't many accessories bandoliers or pouches built to hold mega darts and you won't have as much ammo to scrounge during a war because hardly anyone is using MEGAS. They should've made this MAG fed and used the mags from the centurion. 6 rounds rapid reload, and storage for spare rounds. Too bad. At least give us a multi round platform that lets us shoot streamlines and MEGAs from the same blaster.

    3. MLD quit? Now what??

    4. My apologies about my confusion. Many have come and gone through the years without much trace. And to answer Anon #1's question. Obviously, no. I didn't read SBNC's post or this would have been extremely insensitive. Best wishes in your recovery, Ash!

  27. While I know surgery takes a while to recover from 2 months is a long time to not be able to use a computer. Hopefully he is okay.

  31. The Magnus was at my Walmart. . . In the clearance section. I'm assuming it's just because of lack of shelf space; the Elite Spectre was there, too.
