Nerf Elite Rapidstrike CS-18 and Mega Centurion Release Dates?

If you have already given us a like on our Facebook Page, you'll already know that there was a bit of excitement on the other night.

A keen eyed member of the BritNerf Forum spotted listings for both the Elite Rapidstrike CS-18 and Mega Centurion on Naturally I jumped on it and bought one of each!

The next morning, I received a phone call from the seller saying that the items were only meant to be added to their inventory and weren't actually supposed to be listed. I was a little disappointed, but deep down I knew it was too good to be true.

However, the lovely chap on the phone kindly offered me a great deal. To apologise for the mishap, he offered me 50% off the bill when stock becomes available... on 22nd May.

Could this be an 'official' release date for both of these blasters?

Initially I was dubious. I know that often, large retailers get stock well in advance of the release date. Although I should receive mine at this time, I doubted that the official release date would be this early in the year.

But then I stumbled upon this.

Whilst researching the new blasters, I stumbled upon They list the Mega Centurion on their site. Unfortunately the page doesn't give us any more information on the blaster but it does list the release date. "Coming soon to MAY!"

So now that's two sources indicating May as a release date for both the Mega Centurion and the Elite Rapidstrike. Starting to sound interesting isn't it? It does raise one question though...

What do we have to look forward to on 9/9/13?


  1. All sounds very dodgy and too good to be true, personally speaking I think you're bullshitting a Seller contacted you. In all 10+ years I've never had a call from a Seller stating a screw up, just email at most. How on earth did a seller get those details for you. This site is so unreliable honestly speaking. You're like that American guy, FoamFromAbove, just loud noise and no content. I don't know what went wrong with you, I will stick to UT, BN and MLD for my news.

    1. Wow... Firstly thanks for commenting. Ebay give users the facility to retrieve contact details for other users when there are problems. That is how they managed to get in contact. If you take the time to follow the link above to the BritNerf topic, you will see that the other users who did the same thing also receied phone calls. If that still isn't proof enough for you, send me an email and I will gladly CC you in on my correspondance with the seller.

      As for your comment about unreliability, I fail to see what information I have posted that has brought you to draw such a conclusion. Perhaps you would care to point out where I have proven to be unreliable? I will gladly apologise and correct any mistakes that I have made.

      Thank you once again for commenting. I hope we can take steps to make you change your mind.
