Toy Fair London 2013

There's been a lot of information going around from the recent Toy Fair 2013 in London. We obviously weren't able to attend, and we haven't been able to find any official press release from Hasbro. However, Ash, who runs a UK based Nerf blog over at My Last Dart was not only able to go, but to get the scoop on some very exclusive intel regarding the 2013 Nerf season. Now, without any further ado:

Part 1

Part 2

Great job Ash, we're all in your debt. Not to mention we're drooling with anticipation! We'll wait with baited breath until you can reveal more about what you've found out.

Elite Alpha Trooper Confirmed!

There has been lots of speculation surrounding the production of an Elite version of the Alpha Trooper, including leaked proposed internals and an unconfirmed shot of the blaster. However, the bloggers over at UK Nerf War have some pictures suggesting that it will be available there in March:
"Spotted in the new Spring/Summer copy of the 'Argos' catalogue by one of our eagle eyed followers, the Elite Alpha Trooper will be available from March."
No word yet on a US release date, so stay tuned as details unfold. For now, we'll all hope that this doesn't follow the pattern of the Stockade, which still hasn't shown up here!  Also, interesting to note is that there is still no confirmed name for the blaster. Originally many rumors were disregarded as pictures show a fuzzy "Alpha Trooper CS-18" (or 12 as some claim, it's hard to tell) on the side of the blaster as well as the old N-Strike logo. This seemed to not keep in line with the new naming convention of the Elite series. However, with the release of the Triad EX-3 and the Rough Cut 2X4 it's possible that the CS-12 is a reality. Only time will tell.
