Kohl's Exclusive Update

Aside from the Rapid Strike Mission Kit, Kohl's also has a Lumitron exclusive that comes with an extra 14 glow-in-the-dark discs. Both have been spotted in stores with "A Kohl's Exclusive" sticker. The prices online are listed at $36.99 and $39.99 respectively. However, in store, they are only 20% off their "normal" price: $54.99 for the Rapid Strike Mission Kit, and $59.99 for the Lumitron. This brings the prices to roughly $44 and $48, which really isn't worth it considering the normal retail price.

Rapid Strike Mission Kit

Kohl's has these for sale on their website and they are appearing in stores. The kit includes a Retaliator (without barrel or stock attachments) and two 18 round magazines with 36 elite darts. According to Kohl's website the "original" price is $54.99, but is currently listed with the sale price of $36.99. No word yet on if this is a Kohl's exclusive or not, but if you don't care about the attachments or the 12 round magazine, this might be worth looking into.

Elite Nightfider: Firestrike

Sources have led us to some pictures online of what appears to be the Elite version of the Nightfinder: the Firestrike! Although these pictures have a  similar backdrop to other leaked blasters that may or may not be repaints or fakes, (There's been a lot of debate surrounding some pictures of a blue Jolt) this seems to coincide with the images Nerf has revealed thus far. The original image (released as promotional material and on some packaging) closely resembles the preview that appeared online. What exactly will the second trigger be? Speculation is that it may be a red light under the barrel, and the caution sticker would appear to coincide with something to that effect. No word on any internal changes, we can only wait and see.

Elite Firefly clip, darts, Raven, and Stryfe!? has posted up some pictures of new Elite glow-in-the-dark darts. What's more interesting is the back of the packaging, which shows more previews of the elite line. Aside from a repainted Rayven and Firefly Tech Clip, the Stryfe looks to be a completely new blaster, and without any noticeable priming mechanism. Could this be the clip fed Barricade/Stockade we've all been waiting for?
