Stingers, Sleeves, a Magnus and... Angel Armor?

So this week some new Nerf stuff has been discovered here and there, The Elite Rayven Stinger CS12, Zombiestrike blaster sleeve and My Last Dart showed us some fairly solid evidence that a Mega Magnus is on the way.

Lets start with the Nerf Mega Magnus...


My Last Dart gave us this little tid-bit of info 3 days ago. Somehow, and I dunno how. He found this listing in Amazon.com


Yep, that says "Mega Magnus". this looks like a mobile site for an Amazon listing to me. No photo yet, but based on the description, it wont be a break loader like my Mega Samaritan concept.

The listing contains the following:

From the Manufacturer.
Your battles are about to get a whole lot bigger - Mega bigger. The Magnus blaster has the same high performance as other N-Strike Elite blasters, but it features bigger darts engineered to fire farther than ever. Launch Mega Darts at targets up to 85 feet away and dominate the biggest Nerf battle yet with the Magnus blaster. Its built-in, one-handed clip lets you reload fast to get back in the game and it comes with 3 Mega Whistler Darts that scream as they fly. Hit the battlefield with Mega power with the Magnus blaster. Nerf and all related characters are trademarks of Hasbro.

Our Recommended age: 8 - 99 years
Mfg Recommended age: 8 - 99 years
Item model number: A4796
Product Dimensions: 2.7 inches x 13.5 inches x 9 inches
Shipping Weight: 2.5 pounds
ASIN: B00EAHXPAG

Technical Details
Magnus blaster fires Mega Darts farther than ever
Mega Whistler Darts fly 85 feet and scream as they fly
3-dart capacity
Top-loading clip lets you reload fast one-handed
Magnus blaster works with Mega Darts only

To see the desktop version of the listing go to: http://www.amazon.com/Nerf-N-Strike-Elite-Magnus-Blaster/dp/B00EAHXPAG/. Still no details on the seller (or a price)... it could be Amazon itself though.

Then (also on Amazon.com) is the Nerf Elite Rayven Stinger CS12.



Being sold by AR-Discount, the asking price was $39.99 but was reduced to $29.99, possibly when they discovered the colour was ugly. It's strange how a 3rd party seller on Amazon.com was able to get this before anyone else. The Rayven Stinger is also available on Sam's Club but for $20. Additional info goes:

Unleash a storm of darts at your target with the Rayven Stinger blaster! The acceleration trigger on this 12-dart blaster lets you launch your whole clip with motorized rapid-fire. It comes with 25 Elite Darts so you can load up twice or carry an extra stash of darts!
Description

It comes with 25 Elite Darts so you can load up twice or carry an extra stash of darts! As with most N-Strike blasters, the Rayven Stinger blaster's Tactical Rail lets you add Tactical Rail accessories (sold separately) for more battle capability. Power up your Rayven Stinger blaster and blast away as fast as you can pull the trigger!

The Rayven Stinger blaster has motorized semi-auto blasting! Acceleration trigger powers up the motor for rapid fire! Clip holds 12 darts and works with any Clip System blaster (sold separately).

So what do you reckon? Elite Gear-up?

Then someone decided to try and flog this for $75 on eBay:


Made by Perpetual Play (makers of the Z-Bombz and the Flube... don't Google Flube, you've been warned!), it looks like an Elite accessory that's been reboxed at the last minute to Zombiestrike. When I think Zombie-apoc, I don't think blue-black-grey digital cammo. I think, blanket stitched canvas or worn leather. Anyway, turns out, these are available in Target USA for $20 I think, so, if you want one, git it from there. They're not rare. And I'll be asking Santa for one for sure.

Then the Mission App Mount got a reshelling:


As you can see it differs from the one we've been exposed to already...




The seller wants $59.97 for it... umm, no. I'm not going to spend "whole blaster" money on just an accessory.

Lastly (I promise).

I found this on the Mr Toys Toyworld listing for the Rebelle Guardian Crossbow...


"Angel Armor"? What do you suppose that means? My best guess is that it was a working title that was scrapped after Hasbro sent the images to Mr Toys' head office. This wouldn't be the first time a working title was leaked though, I'm thinking Stampede ECS-50... you?

I think this post is long enough now, think I'll call it there.
