Grey Trigger Crossfire Bow on Taobao

Taobao, the outlet for most things Nerf before it's actually a Nerf thing. And today was no different.

For us Aussies, leaked images of grey trigger blasters are both a blessing and a curse. It's a blessing because it indicates that we will be getting a blaster. It's a curse because it's another reminder of the watered down performance our blasters get.

The box isn't anything we've not seen before aside from the grey trigger.

And here is the back just in case you forgot what it looks like.

And here is a pic of the blaster inside the box. Interesting to see that the primer is also grey (eeeww). Hasbro does this sometimes. Perfect example is the Rapidstrike and Centurion. The clip release, trigger and shoulder stock lock button (on Rapidstrike) are orange in the USA but all grey in Australialand.

                     USA version                                 AUS version

And here are the instructions for you to look at with your eyeballs.

So the grey trigger version practically confirms that an Australian release is imminent. What I want to know is though... why grey? I understand that Hasbro can't do anything about toy safety regulations here in Australia and need to have the two versions distinguishable from one-another, so a different colour trigger (and other things) is a good way to tell the two apart. But grey? Not white, or blue, or magenta... grey. Well, at least it's not beige.
