New Nerf Mega Magnus hits Argos.co.uk - Plus Elite Havok box art

Props to Rob over at SBNC for the heads up on these listings!


Sitting at my pc checking email and Skying some friends, I got to Skyping with Rob over at SBNC. It's something of a routine to occasionally catch each other and chat about real life and Nerf/blasters in general. So super thanks for the heads up - here we go, the Nerf Mega Magnus and the new Elite Havok Vulcan OJ scheme blasters ready for online or instore pick up!

Order code: 187/7311
£14.99
This Nerf blaster shoots Mega Darts up to 85 feet and can hold 3 darts at a time. It has a textured grip and a tactical rail at the bottom. A great gift, this cool new Nerf gun inspires kids to create exciting Nerf battles and games.
  • For outdoor use only.
  • Size H22.9, W34.3, D6.8cm.
  • Weight 1kg.
  • For ages 8 years and over.
  • EAN: 5010994779160.
WARNING(S):
  • Not suitable for children under 3 years old.

I've heard many a great positive thing about this blaster, and despite it's 3 Mega dart capacity, it's fast becoming a must have sidearm. Certainly up there with the Hammershot. I so can't wait to get my hands on one to check it out personally! If you have one, be great to see what you have to say about it.


So, on to a blaster before my Nerf time - I have to say it looks good. Despite the info reading Whistler darts, the front packaging clearly rocks Elite darts. It's bit of a sad state of affairs that this blaster has been rolled out with just a paint refresh and no internal upgrades. Without further ado - this blaster is available online and instore pick up (even if it is at a hefty price).

    1. In the UK the Vulcan is called the Havok Fire.

    The Magnus makes for an AWESOME masterkey, plus all you have to do is add in a maverick spring for 100 ft ranges flat.

    I'm personally stoked about an ELITE Vulcan. Hope it is released in the states.
