Stryfe on Amazon

Stryfe (American Box)
The Stryfe has mad it's way onto Amazon for 19.99. It's actually been there for a couple of days, but we wanted to make sure it was legitimate (as the listing has no picture). Today, it came in! There are already quite a lot of reviews already up and internals listed for this guy. So all that's left is to get your hands on one! If you haven't been lucky enough to find one at a Toys R Us near you, here's the link to the Stryfe on

Special thanks to Paul for tipping us off to this earlier in the week.

Edit: It's also popped up on Walmart's website for the same price with the option for in store pickup as soon as 12/7. Is this an official release date? We'll have to wait and see.

More pictures after the jump.

Stryfe in California

Nerf blogger Cartaya over at Cartaya's Revenge has not only posted up some detailed tests and pictures of the new Stryfe, but apparently acquired his in California. In the comments section of the article featuring the unboxing of the blaster, Cartaya revealed that he purchased the blasters "Toys R Us. stevenson ranch, California" It's definitely a little ways away from the San Francisco Bay Area, but it means that hopefully they can't be far off from showing up in stores here. We checked out some local Toys R Us' in the area and haven't spotted anything yet. Be sure to let us know if you find anything! We'll keep you posted on any further developments.

Ruff Cut and Strongarm Pictures

Urban Taggers has revealed some photos of what is believed to be the Ruff Cut and Strongarm, from the filming of an upcoming "Nerf Evolution" commercial. Pictures can be found here and here, on the Urban Taggers blog. The pictures were originally found on the instagram of  model/actor Brandon Pera, who also tweeted from the set. It appears the Ruff Cut will be a pump action blaster with what appears to be a 2x4 barrel, holding two rows of four darts. Hopefully this commercial comes out sooner rather than later.
