New Blasters at Toys R Us in Sunnyvale

Many of the new Elite blasters were spotted in Sunnyvale at Toys "R" Us.
Rayven CS-18
Prices are as follows:
Rayven CS-18 - $39.99
Firefly Mission Kit - $19.99
Triad EX-3 - $7.99
Strongarm - $12.99

Also as usual, it seems that prices may be more expensive at Toys R Us. But at the moment there is a sale for "Buy 1, get 1 40% off" that may make it worthwhile if you were thinking of picking up more than one of these new blasters.

More pictures after the jump.

New Jolt and Stryfe in the Bay Area

Jolt photo taken at Best Buy in Santa Clara
Both the "Elite" Jolt and the Stryfe have been spotted in the Bay Area. The Jolt was seen at Best Buy in Sunnyvale. A Toy's "R" Us in San Jose has been reported to have the Stryfe.  The Jolt at Best Buy is retailing for $4.99, while the Stryfe at Toys "R" Us is going for $24.99, more expensive than either Amazon or Walmart.

While the Jolt has a new paint job, and the nose has been changed a little, it does not actually mention the Elite line anywhere on it or the packaging. Looks like Nerf may still be reserving that for blasters that hit certain ranges.

Special thanks to Amy, who dropped the news and snapped us a picture of the Jolt at Best Buy.
