Nerf Rampage Video Released

Hey guys and gals, Snake here.  New in from the people at Nerf, we've got the Rampage video.  The Rampage is the new 25-round drum fed, slam fire blaster in the Elite Line.  The big hook to the Elite line is that the blasters can shoot up to 75 feet!  Without further ado, here's the video:

In the previous pictures here, the rampage has a removable stock and shield.  These were not even featured in the video.  The other big ticket item still not shown yet is the Elite Ammo.  When we know anything about the new ammo, you'll be first to hear it here on TTAGS Chicago!

Rampage with removable stock and shield

After watching the video, the Rampage seems exactly like a raider functionally and astetically, with the exception that the drum is 10 rounds less.  Unlike the 35-round drum, this one has the feeding part centered.  Centering the drum will make it much more ambidexterous. 

For the entire Elite line information check out our pictures and reviews here:

Nerf N-Strike Elite Full Release Pictures!!!

Hey guys and gals, Snake here.  We've got the huge scoop everyone has been waiting for.  On the same German forums that had the information on the Hailfire, now found a store that is carrying the entire Nerf N-Strike Elite line.  Here's the link to the website:  Nerf N-Strike Elite Line

Without further ado, here are the big pictures of the FINAL PRODUCT that everyone wants:

Retaliator, full review here

Rampage - A Raider with a new stock and shield with 20 shot drum

Elite Barricade - No new name yet, but with a dart holding stock

Hailfire - The big boy with all the bells and whistles

No word or information yet on the new Elite Dart design or what it might consist of at this time.

So there's the entire Nerf N-Strike Elite Line!  The Hailfire has more clips than we could have imagined.  With the secondary trigger like the Rayven, it's semi-auto flywheel powered.  All the Elite blasters closely resemble something already on the market.  Will we see if they can stand up to the "Up to 75 feet" claim...

Nerf N-Strike Elite Retaliator Revealed!

Hey guys and gals, Snake here.  Today we've got the reveal video of the new Nerf N-Strike Elite Retaliator Blaster.  On first look it appears to be a Recon/ with accessories to make it more closly resemble a Longstrike!  Here's the video:

Nerf says the whole Elite Line, including th Retaliator will launch in Fall 2012, headlined by the Nerf N-Strike Elite Hailfire.  Here's a youtube still I took of the Retaliator:

Fancy Recon or something new?
Honestly, my first impression is a Recon body with a Longstrike style stock.  The removable front barrel is simply a new paintjob on the classic recon barrel extension.  The Assault Grip on the front is modular as well as looks to be an amazing addition to anything that uses a tactical rail. 

As with the entire Nerf N-Strike Elite Line, they advertise the Retaliator will hit up to 75 feet.  I am eager to see what the good folks at Nerf have come up with the get those ranges with a Recon style blaster.
The clip is obviously larger than the standard 6 shot magazine, and looks to be shorter than the 18 round magazines that came with the Stampede.  I'd wager the Elite line will come with 12 shot magazines, just like the Hailfire will.

More to come as it gets released!
