Elite Alpha Trooper - The Real Deal!

I was contacted by BlackBoarderV (I'm sure you guys are all familiar with who he is!) and he basically hit me upside the head with news that I've been hoping for.

Originally posted at the UKNerfWar blog, apparently some sharp-eyed Nerfers spotted the Elite Alpha Trooper in the Spring/Summer edition catalogue of "Argos".


As you can see, it's set for a March release... And that's making me mad excited!
Also spotted is what seems to be a new Dart Tag blaster with a target board:


I don't know about you, but I'm definitely happy that the Elite Alpha Trooper is the real deal... and I can't wait to get my hands on a pair. I might go overboard and get even more than that though, haha.

(Credits to BlackBoarderV and the UKNerf Blog for the info!)

Peace,

  4. Nice. Do you know if this is the release date for everyone, pSyk? Anyone else notice the acronym for the new AT, it's EAT. Hehehe.....

    1. I doubt so. I think this is gonna be for the UK release.

      I hope it is though, but I guess it gives all of us something to look forward to during March :)

  5. And it looks like it's sporting a stick mag! :D
    As a huge alpha trooper fan, nothing could make me happier than an elite AT with a stick mag. . . (Lets just face it, drums are 'kinda silly, though 35s are okay.)

    1. Hahaha. I personally am a fan of the 18-drum. But, whatever floats your boat, because we can all agree that ATs are awesome :)

  6. Well, at least now it cancels out any speculations about the Elite AT not being real! I really want to find out what that Dart Tag too! Really excited for these! ^-^

  8. Ok, I'll give Nerf credit for realeasing some great blaster recently. Now they need to realease/make some accessories to go on all of those tac rails & stock posts.

  11. Notice where the priming handle is? They show the EAT firing its dart while the priming handle is back. Anyone else think it will have a catch similar to the StrongArms?

    1. Thats how the box art was for the N-Strike Alphatrooper if memory serves me. It was shown with the priming pulled 1/2 way back and firing. Does anyone else remember that? I'll be at Target tomorrow and check. I was thinking about picking up another one mainly for the 18rd drum. My Target no longer sells the drum seperate anymore. "S"

  12. What Nerf needed to do was release the Elite AT with the 25 round drum and slap a stock on it. I'd pay $35 for that baby.
