    haha...

    Haha, fren. I like that. "For really extreme nerfers"

    I think what may have happened is that they spent way too much time on other blasters and this was a last minute throw together so managment didn't fire someone.
    ...I'm not sure if people are just adamant on making jokes at Hasbro's expense or people don't get it but the idea of N-Strike Elite is to essentially upgrade N-Strike guns, look at the Rampage...it's a Raider! The Retaliator is obviously meant to be a recon and the Hailfire is a Vulcan/Stampede Hybrid upgrade.

    To be perfectly honest I was not aware that the 'ELITE' series was intended to be upgraded models of existing blasters (just curious, can you quote a source?).
    If this is indeed their intention with this series, true they look awesome-ish in and old-vs-new kinda way but the real test will be when we see the actual performance difference between models.

    But I do with they would stop re-hashing/re-painting existing blasters and try a few new designs instead, like the rayven!

    Yep, the last time they did a whole bunch of totally new dart blaster designs was the alpha trooper/spectre/barrel break release.

    No source mate, only speculation, obvious speculation, if you look at the similarities there is no denying it.

    Personally, I'm loving the look of the Retaliator. Its like the Recon I always wanted and then some!

    Don't get me wrong they do look cool, but for all purposes related to modified items, they fail IMHO
