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.
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!
