Pump up the action with the NERF DART TAG MAGSTRIKE blaster, the first NERF rapid fire blaster with a clip reloading system! With a rapid firing air pressure system that allows kids to quickly blast foam darts at their opponents and a stock for comfortable blasting and pumping, this awesome blaster brings great fast-paced fun to the popular NERF DART TAG line.

The NERF DART TAG MAGSTRIKE blaster comes complete with two reload clips, 20 TAGGER MICRO DARTS, a scoring vest and one pair of cool VISION GEAR eyewear and is compatible with the NERF DART TAG 2-Player System and the NERF DART TAG CROSSFIRE blaster.

Boys can use the individual blasters for on-the-go action or combine the blasters to create a formidable force.

The NERF N-STRIKE LONGSHOT CS-6 blaster comes complete with a scope and bi-pod for boys to really take aim and blast their target with more precision and control. And, with an awesome reloading clip system, refilling your blaster has never been faster.

I'm not setting my hopes too high as for ranges, but a clip-fed springer sounds ultra-sexy. At least I assume it will be a springer if it's compatible with the CF and DTBs. Of course I'm talking about the Longshot, no confusion.

A working scope and bipod? What the hell? That doesn't sound...Nerfish to me, they wouldn't have done this a year ago. It's probably just a gimmicky thing to jack up the price $10 but oh well, I'll still buy it if it's clip-fed and spring-powered. Sounds nice.

As for the Magstrike, I can't wait for that. It sounds to me exactly like a PC re-released with extra clips. Maybe Hasbro is listening to people who want stuff like this.

I'm really excited about this stuff. Thanks SofaKing, I never would've found that if you hadn't posted it.

Oh, and there are no pictures, I checked the actual article out. Maybe in a month.

This fall? Man, that's a long wait.

The pistol sounds cool, but yeah, the thought of Nerf selling anything powerful enough out of the box to make good use of a scope and bipod is unlikely. Although that really doesn't matter, as everyone in their target demo is gonna want one if they make it look good enough.

The possibilities for modding could be interesting, at any rate.

Wow, thanks for showing me the link for conformation. Really, this has to be the best news concerning NERF in a long time :rolleyes:. Sweet! So happy...

And if it stays active for more than 4 hours, consult a physician. :rolleyes: This gave me a severe fit of maniacal laughter. It sounds a lot like Viagra for children. I sure could go for the "rush of competition and the thrill of victory".

On a serious note, I'm quite interested to see where this leads. The Magstrike sounds very much like a PC. If that's the case, Hasbro could see some serious profit on the series. The Longshot sounds Titan-ish, but springy style. I absolutely can't wait to see the possible innovations for these.

As for the wait, relax guys. Take out your old guns and have some fun. If these new releases are phenomenal, you might be using your old friends less. This will give you some time to think of new mods/homemades too.

Thats awsome! Thanks Sofaking.

I still can't tell wether the longshot is a spinger or not. 'Cause a clip loading springer would be kick ass. The longshot sounds the the asshole of nerf.

They've paid attention to our magazine fed weapons. I said a long time ago that single shot weapons were slowly going out. I hope these can be modded.

The CS sounds like it could replace the Crossbow if it's moddable. Clip fed, working scope, bi pod?! Wow... I'm impressed with Nerf's progress. It could turn out to be junk, but hey... I couldn't have imagined them marketing anything like this.

Wow! I'll repeat what everyone else said, but the magstrike sounds very much like a pc. The two clips got me extra excited to see it. I can't wait for this fall, I just hope it's worth the wait.

It would be great if the magstrike clips work in a pc, or will with some tweaking. I seriously doubt it, but one can hope. Can't wait to see what's next.

My question is when they say "clip" , I really wonder how their manufactured clip works. Besides that this sounds awesome but I will only get one or the other so I'll need some feedback by you guys come the fall! Thanks for the update!

Well then think about this. When the wildfire was rereleased as the rapid-fire they used the same turrets. I think they will use the same clips.I am also very anxious to see this longshot in action. Hopefully these guns dont bomb out like the firefly.

I am very excited about this, but for all we know, the longshot may just be another sawtooth. Either way I'll be sure to purchase these.

It's not the size that matters... it's how you use it...
Sorry I couldn't resist.
What made me wonder is the description of the Longshot; that it separates into two independant guns. Kinda reminds me of the old Defender T3 of the Cyber Strike series, but that's going waaaay back.

I use a DT3. Gah, that's a good gun if you know how to mod it.

Be pretty nifty to have an upgrade.

I recall a time not long before the release of the N-strike when people thought Nerf was dying. Here's a fork. Here's a spoon. Prepare to eat your words...

I think that even if the magstrike is another sawtooth, that would still be great. This means they are either:
A. Beginning to notice the intrest in mag fed blasters;
or
B. Going back to the older designs.

We can't loose. OMC, Talio, or CHeifthe, whenever you can tell us something on these, please do.

Wow. I leave for a couple weeks, and suddenly Hasbro gets pimp. It does sound alot like a rerelease of the PC to me. That's pretty sweet in my opinion. I'm excited about how Nerf is finally migrating from making a bazillion of pistols.
