Here is a quick review with some pictures for you all.
First off is the box and packaging here is the front.
First looks there is no ammo drum and it is a 12 dart clip as we already had worked out.
Next is the back with all the usual Nerf pointers with 20meter range expected.
Contents looks like Hasbro are going with minimum packaging staying on form with the current Elite line.
No plastic bags on the darts or blaster to protect the paint work.
Comes with one 12 dart clip and 12 darts
Blaster is the same size as the original Alpha Trooper.
It is soooooooo quiet when you fire off a dart and it has good velocity and distance first full clip i estimate to have gone 20-25 meters fired them off in my mothers 25 foot garden 4 out of 12 hit the 6 foot fence about 3 foot high. Sorry no pictures or video to prove this so make of it what you will.
Next is some internal pictures i know you all like internals
It has all the usual annoying locks and quirks
Spring seams a little wimpy im gonna look through my springs to see it can be made better
Plunger rod there is a little dead space in the end but not much
Any more pictures wanted just let me know
I'm pretty sure the Alpha Trooper is exclusive to argos in the uk so I don't know if they will be going across the pond. If I remember correctly the guy from hasbro at the toy fair said it won't be released in america for a long time at least untill argos has has there fill.
I guess its our Triad.
