Dart Tag: Sharp Shot gets updated
Nerf did a pretty good job at re-releasing their Dart Tag line last year but the one blaster I felt let the side down was the single firing Sharp Shot. It looked awesome (and to be honest performed pretty well once modded) but out of the box, it was pretty ordinary to say the least, compared to its big brothers.
Turns out Nerf will be re-releasing the Sharp Shot; have a look at the above images of the new 2012 Dart Tag 2 Player Starter Pack and you'll see that green bar that says "fires farther than ever!". Other subtle changes are the new coloured training vests, and the Sharp Shot itself sporting a new BLUE trigger, a la the Speed Swarm. This is interesting- while it's common for blasters to be re-released with aesthetic changes (eg repaints or movie tie-in rebrands) , it's not very common at all for them to be updated for performance.
As always, this is just intel, but no doubt they'll be on shelves sometime this year.
