Nerf MEGA Centurion - Official News Brings Disappointment

A little late to the table but work has kept me pretty busy the last few weeks. Only just got round to posting this.

Official description of the MEGA Centurion and UK price and release date after the jump.

(HASBRO/Ages 8 years & up/Approx. Retail Price: £49.99/Available: Autumn/Winter 2013)
Feel the power when you wield the mighty N-STRIKE ELITE CENTURION blaster, which possesses a massive and unparallelled 80 foot dart firing distance. Boasting the furthest firing NERF blaster in the brand’s history, the CENTURION blaster also features the new whistling MEGA dart, measuring over twice the size of a standard ELITE dart and screaming through the air when fired. With the formidable CENTURION blaster, fans will enjoy unprecedented power, precision and distance. Blaster comes with removable bipod, one six-dart clip and six MEGA darts. Available at most major toy retailers nationwide.

Well... There you have it.

With this release comes the worrying news that the UK Centurion will be a wimpy version. Note it is described as having an 80 foot range compared to the 100' of the US version. This coupled with the price results in one seriously disappointed blogger.

It seems the more we learn about this blaster, the less I want it.
