Hasbro Set to Drive Global Retail Programs with Strategic Licensing Supporting Company's Franchise Brands

Woohoo, hope to see some of the big releases at the Licensing Expo 2013 over in Las Vegas this year. The event will be held on June 18, 19, 20 at the Mandalay Bay Convention Center, Las Vegas, NV.

What is this all about? Basically Hasbro will head out there, show off the brands listed below, for companies to partner, and promote under their banner - after paying some heavy duty money.

What does this mean for us fans? Well people some killer ideas will have the opportunity to grow the brand with new products. This is most likely what Hasbro meant back at the Conference they gave when they mentioned increasing partnership and empowering Franchises to create high-quality Nerf products.

Here we go, some more Clear Blue Stock candy from IlnChen782:

Baidu report of Elite Vulcan popping up in Beijing

I have recieved a ton of email about this, and Props to Gavin Lim Kang Jie for this heads up.

There is some hot buzz right now of reports that this popped up in Beijing, and the OP will be reporting pics and more later. I would like to say, that Hasbro shares dropped last week, so is it a coincidence that this breaks - as always ;)

Elite Spectre pops up in Press Kit in Singapore

Update from Hasbro UK on Elite blaster availability


Heads up to all you UK Nerf fans, I have some much wanted release date and availability info:

New Nerf Vortex colour range spotted in Taiwan!

 
Props to good friends JSPB 自創武力噴射管槍 for this find!
 

Soundmedia.ch list Nerf Rebelle Double Jolt

Thanks to Stefen Horst for the email
Est. release: 30.11.2013
Price: €17.90 CH
EAN 5010994736712

The good folks have let slip an addition to the new Nerf Rebelle range - twin Jolts (Wish Shot).
 
Guessing they're sexed up jolts, with a heavy dash of variant pinks and purples no different to Dart Tag Stingers.

As a Nerf fan, I guess these will end up in my collection, I'm far more interested in what the ZombieStrike equivalent will be - any thoughts?
