Hey everybody! Long time no post (college stuff), I hope you don’t mind. Yesterday I saw F2A’s post on this thing, thought I would write immediately, but went to sleep. So getting on to this new addition to the drone class of Nerf weaponry, what is this Terrascout?
This is going to be a little long,so bear with me please,because this is the mother lode of nerf news,this is..wait for it….The New York Toy Fair!(drumroll please..)
The NYTF opened its doors to some selected people providing media coverage for nerf fans all over the world.This post will be divided in four major sectors
2)N-Strike Elite Mega
We are seeing a lot from this line,as this is the single most anticipated one.
We can see the Demolisher and Cam CS-12 on the podium,but don’t miss the white striped Rapidstrike(sweet!), White Retaliator,Triad and Strongarm(super duper sweet!!) as well as the OJ Firestrike.

There are a whole lotta pictures here,most of them from the new sub-line called Secret and Spies,which is mostly concerned with darts with invisible ink writings on them and decoders.
This might be the big surprise of 2014. A blaster with a built in camera,semi-auto action and the coolest looks.Looks like Engadget got a sneak peek of the prototype blaster,and by the looks of it, it looks pretty awesome. More after the photos.
It is semi-auto,and looks a lot like the Rapidstrike.It has ranges of more than 90 ft.It has black acceleration trigger below the main trigger,and has a non-adjustable stock too.
The camera is somewhat lackluster.It is a 0.3 megapixel camera with a 20 fps recording.There is a small 1.01 inch screen built in the blaster,and it takes a total of 8 batteries to spin the flywheels and run the camera.

The thing that worries me is the price,75$!! That’s about Rs.4700! Well, I guess we have to live with it, given it such a cool blaster.
