Orange Mod Works Retaliator Unleashed

Orange Mod works has announced their Retaliator "Unleashed" kit. The kit (also known as "Stage 1") will feature a trigger catch, two double strength trigger catch springs (in case you lose one), a reinforcement plate, and a 5+ kg mainspring. The spring should be close to double the strength of the stock spring.

From Orange Mod Works Facebook page:
"Hey guys, the Retaliator Stage 1 kit will be available for pre-order on September 14. Our planned release date for this kit is October 30. All pre-orders will ship with a metal trigger. If you wish to purchase a spring on its own, those will be available for purchase next week for the price of $6.00. As a final note, unlike previous preorders, we will be unable to split any shipments that include the Retaliator kit, as our new store software will not allow us to do so. As such, all orders that include a Retaliator Stage 1 kit will be shipped in their entirety upon the release of the kit. If you want other items with the Retaliator kit prior to its release, be sure to place separate orders (one for the Retaliator kit, one for everything else)."
The pre-order page can be found on the OMW website here:

Nerf Elite "Jolt"

Nerf Elite Jolt? As seen on
back of Elite Nerf Vest box.
Nerf hasn't officially announced a retooled version of the Jolt for the Elite line yet, and much speculation has gone around online after images of the blaster surfaced in box art and promotional pictures. More recently a Jolt with an elite color scheme can seen on the back of the box of the Elite Nerf Vest.

However, apparently this may not be the final product. A video has surfaced online showing a fully functional version of the Nerf Triad EX-3.  Externally, and in operation this blaster is vary similar to the Jolt, but seems to be intended to blast three darts. Also, this seems to use an elite version of "whistler" darts. The video is in Chinese, but the fully functional blaster can be seen demonstrating each barrel working, and not just there for dart storage! However, the video does not show all three darts firing simultaneously, leaving many questions unanswered. Is this an elite version of the Jolt, or a completely new blaster?
