N-Strike Elite PinPoint Sight Unboxing

My buddy Qi from Singapore has recently confirmed the rumor of getting an Elite Pinpoint Sight for free when you buy $60 (Singapore dollars I guess) from select Singapore retailers. He also shows a comparison of the Elite and N-Strike Pinpoint sights, and even shows the Elite Pinpoint briefly on the Rampage. The light looks awesome if you ask me, and I can’t wait until this thing comes stateside.

Here is Qi’s, also know as AwesomeNerfer1999, video he made on the sight. Enjoy.

By the way, I think it’s worth mentioning that Qi has been improving his video making skills A LOT over the past couple of months, and is soon going to be upgrading to a 720p mono-audio camera, so the video quality will undoubtedly continue improving. If you’d like to follow Qi and watch a member of the Nerf Nation on the other side of the planet grow and become better, subscribe to him. I did!

Keep up the good work Qi.

Nerf N-Strike Elite Rampage Unboxing

For those of you who haven’t gotten yourself a Rampage yet, and for those who haven’t seen an unboxing… umm, I made one! Hopefully the below video will stand out as a bit higher quality than what you may have come to expect from unboxings. I hope you enjoy and would love any feedback, so tell me watcha think!

As a side note, if you haven’t yet heard, this video is on my new main YouTube channel. I don’t post everything on this blog so subscribe if you want to see everything I’m up to! ;]

Nerf Unveils the Elite Pinpoint Sight

My affiliate AwsomelyNerf contacted me earlier this morning with some great information. AN is down in Singapore, and has gotten a sneak peak of the new N-Strike Elite Pinpoint Sight by means of a guide book distributed out at local toy stores. The stores have been having “Elite tryout” games and he managed to get the pamphlet there. Apparently they have also been handed out at the 2012 Malaysian Nerf Dart Tag Tournament as well.

EDIT: I misunderstood. The guide book is ONLY distributed at the dart tag tournament. The store promotions are still really cool though. 🙂

Breakdown of the games:

  • Grab a locked, loaded, and ready to fire Retaliator.
  • Aim at two rows of targets. Four targets on top, worth 5 points each, Four targets on bottom, worth 2 points each.
  • Fire. Hitting the targets earns you points. If you earn enough, you win a Nerf prize.

No word yet on how exactly the sight functions (It may work exactly the same as the N-Strike version or it may be better) but man it looks cool! Thanks AN for the info!

Happy Launch Day Everyone!

Today is August 1st, and that means that the N-Strike Elite line has officially launched! The new blasters (Retaliator, Rampage, and Hail-Fire) can now be purchased in-store in most major retailers. Today I went on a quest to find out where they’re available, and here’s what I found.

Nerf N-Strike Elite Retaliator selling for $24.99 at Target.

Way more pictures after the jump!

Firestrike double trigger!

Hey guys, so I was contacted earlier today by a guy named AwesomeNerfer1999, who has a blog, by the way. Awesome had taken a close look at the box art of the new Firestrike, the elitified version of the Nitefinder, and he noticed something pretty unique about it. The thing has two triggers. Now I don’t know if anybody has posted about this before, but his is the only site I’ve seen mention it. On the box art you can see one large tigger, partially hidden by the docking strap on the Elite Tactical Vest, and another smaller one beneath it. Awesome speculates (and I agree) that this secondary trigger is likely to operate the Firestrikes underbelly light, assuming the Firestrike still has a light. This freedom of control over the light would be an awesome addition to the blasters functionality when it comes to stealth missions. The Nightfinders light HAD to come on before it would fire, not the best for sneaky attacks.

Another idea Awesome has is that Nerf may have upgraded the light itself. While this is unconfirmed, Nerf has been upgraded many of its products, and it wouldn’t surprise me if the new Firestrike features a light that reaches further than the Nightfinders (about 15 feet, remember?).

So shinies, what ELSE could this curious little trigger be? Tell me in the comments! And visit AwesomeNerfer1999 for another cool site to look at.
