Mega Centurion available for pre-order via Toys R Us UK and

Well UK, you've heard all about it and it's almost in your hands. Now it's that little bit closer.

Toys R Us UK have made the Mega Centurion available for pre-order via their website!

It's selling for as close to £50 as to not make any difference. Which is a pretty big markup! I did some currency conversions and £50 works out to be the same as the Australian Centurion price. But Toys R Us USA has the Centurion for the equivalent of £28.55. That's a 175% price jump!!!

The description goes:

Launch a long-range assault with this incredible high-caliber Centurion blaster! This N-Strike Elite blaster features bigger darts that are engineered to fire farther than ever. Attach the bipod stand for even more accuracy and load up the MEGA Clip with your MEGA Whistler Darts. They scream as they fly! With a range of 100 feet and 6 MEGA darts, you can push the boundaries of your marksmanship. Amp up your targeting cred with the Centurion blaster!

Blaster comes with 6 MEGA darts, MEGA Dart clip, removable bipod stand and instructions.

Argos has it for the same price:

Launch a long-range assault with this new, high-calibre Centurion blaster. With an incredible range of 23 meters and 6 darts to fire you can hit far away targets like never before. With a bipod stand included for even more accuracy, listen to the darts make a devilish whistling sound as they fly through the air towards their target.

By now, you've read all the reviews and the mechanical observations and you should be informed enough to have made up your mind as to whether you'll buy this blaster or not. The Centurion is getting a lot of hate but I like it, but I suspect it's out of pity. For my findings on the centurion read my post titled "MEGA Centurion, an epic quest for knowledge".

From what I've heard about the UK version of the Centurion. It had to be detuned, because it was too noisy? Believe it or not, but, that tid bit of info came from a reliable source.

I can't wait so see what the UK Nerfers think of the Centurion... they probably won't like it.
