Nerf released these videos a couple days ago on the official Hasbro site, but the links (as I’m sure you noticed) weren’t functioning properly. In order to help get the word out on these great blasters and help generate hype for Nerf, I took a few screen recordings and have posted the videos here. I don’t own any part of these videos; I’m just helping to share the love. Enjoy!
Nerf N-Strike Elite Hail-Fire
The release date for the Hail-Fire is set for September 9th, 2012 at $39.99.
It’s lookin’ pretty sweet if you ask me. I just wonder how useful accessories will be with that handle right in front of them. You’d think it would block visibility from scopes, and I’m sure it would block some light if you attached a light onto the accessory rail. Hopefully I’m wrong, but hey, even if I’m not, it’s not really meant to be held like a rifle. So, I guess it’s not that big of a loss. Still looks sweet.
The rest of the Elite blaster videos are after the jump.
Nerf N-Strike Elite Retaliator
The release date for the Retaliator is scheduled for August 1st, 2012 at $24.99.
Strange, in the clip where the demonstrator attaches the assault grip, he puts it on with the little notch facing the back and uses it to lock his thumb into place. Yet in the next clip the assault grip is attached with that notch facing forwards. I wonder which way is correct. ?
Nerf N-Strike Elite Rampage
The release date for the Rampage is scheduled for August 1st, 2012, and will retail for $29.99.
The guy puts the darts into the clip the “wrong” way. I’m thinking it’s just a subtle reinforcement to the rumor that the foam is tougher in the new Elite darts. Can’t wait to test it out.
