  1. 1. I don't think the Rapidstrike will be able to reach up to 30 m.
    2. Are those prices from Australia, because I thought the Centurion was $50 USD.

    1. They seem to regularly get screwed over on prices a bit over there... Also, the Rapidstrike has already had range tests and lives up to the claims.

    2. Nope, those are prices from Mars, Pocket was just paying a visit and came across the press release.

    3. I meant that it says 20 m. on the photo. Besides, 30 m is almost 100 ft, equal to that of the Centurion. I believe it's a typo.

    4. All three is alrdy in Singapore. Mega cost $100+.

  2. I thought we were getting down tuned versions. why does it say they will hit 30 metres. And aren't those prices alittle steep?

  3. It sucks that the mission app tactical mount is limited to 600 per store. Does this mean they have plans for a universal one that works with all or most smartphones? Also was there any word on new MEGA elite blasters?

  4. Yes they make lots of claims beforehand then the grey trigger end up being the only ones available, i'm going to be importing a proper version elite alpha trooper

  5. I am wondering how badly our Australian versions will be "nerfed". I only buy elites online because of that. Also will the Revonix and are other Vortex blasters nerfed in Australia?

  6. Still no sign of the Pinpoint Sight?

  7. Oh wait is ALL of this ONLY in Australia???????

  8. I think it's kind of stupid how Nerf is throwing TEK RECON down by creating the Mission App...

  9. I saw this on Tactical Tag earlier today, I thought it might be of interest to this blog.

  10. Thanks for the pricing info Pocket! I just picked up a Rough Cut at Big W in Woden Plaza on discount for $20 and they had a few others there which I'm keen to get my hands on. I'm also really looking forward to getting the Centurion as it is probably the first PROPER Nerf Sniper Rifle (even when it doesn't have a scope). I noticed that they didn't have any info on the ZombieStrike line, another thing that I'm kind of interested in. I'm really anxious to see what Nerf will do for that!

    Anyways, keep up the great work as usual!
