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.
