Hasbro Australia: Official release dates for N-Strike Elite gear

Well, official word from Hasbro Australia has come in on official dates for all of the upcoming Nerf N-Strike Elite gear we've been discussing. For most of us, this stuff can't come soon enough. The general trend is they normally do start popping up a month or two at least before the official release, so here's hoping:D

Nerf N-Strike Elite Firestrike : Feb 2013
Nerf N-Strike Elite Strongarm : Feb 2013
Nerf N-Strike Elite Stryfe: Mid 2013
Nerf N-Strike Elite Rough Cut 2x4: May 2013
Nerf Vortex Diatron : Mid 2013

  1. One thing I am wondering about is when they get released elsewhere like the US and the UK.. particularly that amazon UK have pretty much all of them on preorder and give a rough guide that stock should arrive around late December (if I understand it correctly....)

  3. Strange that they're holding up the release of the stryfe and diatron till half way through next year when they're obviously about to become available in other markets. That's around about a 7 or 8 month wait for us :(

    1. What you thought they'd release them in the middle of summer when most people actually use Nerf blasters most? That's just crazy talk :)

  4. In the United States, the Stryfe has been seeing an early release. I picked one up today in Minnesota. http://www.reddit.com/r/Nerf/comments/13sacs/stryfe_sighted_in_burnsville_mn_toys_r_us/

  5. I feel sorry for the sucker that bought the strongarm on ebay a few months ago. Who would pay a thousand dollars to get a nerf blaster a few months earlier?

  8. I'm always assuming our late release is so they can sell out of the inventory they already have here.

    $25 for the Swarmfire at K-Mart now.

  9. Well for all of us Stateside, Hasbro support is mum on release information. So who knows when we are getting these. According to the lady I chatted with none of the Elite blaster I mentioned (Strongarm, Stryfe, Roughtcut) are on her list of products, and no advance info would be released.

    Kinda stupid if you ask me, we know, for fact, the Stryfe is on shelves here stateside and yet it's not listed... I smell bullshit.
