Early this morning, Amazon Spain leaked a listing for a big bad blaster: the Rhino-Fire. After a good part of the day was spent pouring over the images, trying to see what kinds of features it may have, we received word from Nerf HQ. The Rhino fire is the ‘Mystery Blaster’ that was teased during the recent US blogger hangout with Nerf as well as during this year’s Nerf Event in New York (Check out our video here discussing the party with Foam From Above and ClickClickBamf)
Here’s the blaster blurb we received this afternoon:
NERF N-STRIKE ELITE RHINO-FIRE Blaster
(Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: $99.99/Available: Fall 14)
Dominate the competition with the biggest, baddest NERF blaster yet! The N-STRIKE ELITE RHINO-FIRE blaster is the first fully automatic NERF blaster featuring rapid-fire, double barrel blasting, an amazing 50 dart capacity and two N-STRIKE ELITE dart drums, turning ordinary battles into extraordinary ones. The epic RHINO-FIRE blaster sends darts soaring impressive ELITE distances of up to 90 feet, and features both a front handle for mobility and tripod to ensure awesome accuracy. Includes 50 N-STRIKE ELITE darts. Six “D” batteries required, not included. Available exclusively at Walmart.
This blaster is definitely large and looking to take charge! At pretty much $100 this bad boy is certainly the most expensive blaster to date, and that’s most likely a combination of being expensive to make as well as only being available in limited quantities at Walmart and select international retailers (TBD).
We could speculate on exactly how it operates, but we’ll definitely be getting one or two to show you exactly how later this year!
