With a new year comes new blasters! And it looks like Nerf has decided to expand the lineup of leaks with a brand new line of foam-flingers!
These images via Facebook show what appear to be new Rival Edge themed repaints including the Helios and the Kronos, while also showing us a sneak peek at what seems to be a brand new lineup of N-strike blasters dubbed the Alpha Strike line. So far, that line up includes the Lynx 50-1 & Stinger 50-1, the Tiger and Wolf blasters. While the images do not provide the full box art, it does give us a glimpse of what these blasters can do.
As of writing, not much is known about these blasters or the line itself other then the images below. Full credit goes to Valour Lionheart for the finds!
Along with these new blasters come some more familiar faces rocking a brand new paintjob as well as some new accessories! Featuring a brand new x30 round HIR drum mag with the Helios and a Holster for the Kronos. I for one am very intrigued to get my hands on that new drum!
To finish it up, what are your thoughts on this new line and the new Rival accessories? Do you think this is Hasbro trying to cash in on Zuru/X-shot’s success with blasters like the Vigilante? What do you think about the new 30 round Rival Drum? Leave your thoughts and comments down below! More images are surely to come so stay tuned for an update when we receive new information!
Also, You might notice this *isn’t* Buffdaddy making this post! I will be making a formal introductory post in the near future, but wanted to get this post out there as it was press off the press. I will strive to make better quality content for all you lovely nerfers here soon 🙂
