How much is USD? I don't know the exchange rate.
Man, it's been where I am in the US for like 3 or 4 months. I like the feel of it. I didn't think I would like it, but then I saw it in the display box at my Target. A lot sleeker than it looked on the box. Not sure about the "concealability" factor. My computer just learned a new word too: concealability.
I saw that in seattle about a month ago in target...
There aren't any Targets in Canada :(
Zack,You could use this online currency converter:http://www.xe.com/ucc/
should I buy this or the longstrike?
Where can i find this gun?I went to Toy R Us yesterday but i can't find it.
Yes!finally...now to pester my mum into letting me buy it XP
I hope you get your hands on it soon. I've got a couple but need some advice from your modworks site =P
Chua,I spotted the initial batch of Nerf Alpha Troopers at Toys R Us Forum Mall, the stock should be in the process of distribution island-wide now, so you should be able to find them at most major dept stores over the next week or so.
Hey, I just went to TRU at Vivo City and found Alpha Troopers there!
Will this be in the Tampines TRU soon? I find they stock things in there quite slowly. They don't even have nerf spectres there.Any idea when the alpha trooper will reach this TRU branch?
Do you know if and when it will come into Canada?
so u guys in S.G. get stampedes,clear guns and barrel breaks earlier than the U.S. but you JUST got the alpha trooper over there?
wow! thx for the info! i've been waiting for the launch in singapore! isn't there like any official launch event or sumting?
Ryan =],Just make a phone call to the Toys R Us Tampines branch directly to check that the stock has arrived there before you visit there.
dasnerfer,Yes, the Nerf Alpha Trooper only became available in Singapore dept stores recently. Different countries have different release dates for new Nerf blaster models.
I just got my Alpha Trooper from Suntec City Toys R Us. There is only 3 or 4 left.
Ryan =],I just went there yesterday (23/10/10) and they have stock there...man it was so tempting to buy one..so yea...TRU Tampines branch has stock
where can i get refills for clips only in singapore? is any clip refill available in malaysia too?not the flip clip. just the clips.
i saw one of ur comments last year on the price listing. u said u organise games. may i know when is the next one and other details such as location,time and etc?
I do think this gun is more worth than the barrel break in my opinion. And can I would like to ask, doesn't Singapore sell any mission kit? I seriously want a tactical scope for my Longstrike as the Flip-up sight is really not doing its job. Are the mission kits only available in M'sia department stores?
Adil,2 years back there used to be a Mission Kit with just 2 clips and some foam darts, but it looks like that has been replaced by the Flip Clip Set and Bandolier Kit, both are packaged with additional clips too.Alternatively you could just buy spare clips separately from local members at the NerfSG forum trading section.For local Nerf games organized in Singapore, check the NerfSG forum "Upcoming Games" section:http://nerfsg.freeforums.org/upcoming-games-f5.html
Ashley,So far, the N-Strike Mission Kits have not been stocked at local dept stores in SG, but you can find some of them at dept stores in JB.Note that the N-Strike Tactical Scope is just a hollow plastic tube, it has no magnification and is basically a prop item (like the Longshot Scope).Only the Nerf Pinpoint Sight has an actual functional targeting reticule, so you could consider getting that instead.
just want to know is the barricade out in Singapore? if yes, then how much?
Mag Lu,The Nerf Barricade is not available in stores yet. I will post updates on this site when i have stock availability on it.
Just to tell you guys, the Alpha Trooper isn't worth the $20. When you do slam fire, it jams like every 3 shots, so you're alot better off with the Longstrike or Stampede.
Hudmaster,Mine Doesn't jam every 2 shots. I would suggest exchanging your unit for a working one. My alpha trooper works great, hasn't jammed yet in my hands, this is most likely because I don't prime too fast. May I suggest that you make sure to pull the slam fire handle all the way back to make sure the darts load properly.-Zackwww.jzwt.blogspot.com
Look's great! I really want to get it, so I can't wait until it gets to all Australian stores! By the way check out my Nerf blog at www.nerfstuffisawesome.blogspot.com
@hudmansterYeah yours is jamming because you aren't pulling the primer all the way back. Make sure you keep your motion smooth and you prime the blaster properly. You also are not better off with a longstrike. Ever.@DylanApparently it's here in Australia already.Have a look in Target over the next couple of weeks. It's supposed to be $30 =)
Zeller has them for us Canadians. I picked one up for about $24 with GST 3 days ago.
When are you gonna post the review this gun? I can't wait to see it!
I have an off topic question, I'm currently in the US and am moving to Singapore. I have my beloved modded nerf recon that is painted black and red, but with an orange tip. Is it legal for me to bring it to Singapore painted the way it is?
ion.homedawg,yea it aint any problem as long as it isnt dangerous.Modders in Sg paint their whole gun including the orange tip and they still can use it in Sg..so yea...Cheers
ion.homedawg,You can refer to this link for some useful information:http://nerfsg.freeforums.org/guidelines-from-police-licensing-department-t981.html
Gosh the suspense until your review is killing me.I need to know if the AT plunger is the same size as the Recon plunger! =P
That helps, but would a black nerf recon with an orange tip be consider as " looking like a real gun"?
ion.homedawg,It all depends on situation, as shown in the link i posted, blasters customized or painted to look like realistic firearms are not supposed to be carried around in public.Even with an orange tip, if the authorities receive complaints from the public, they will take action.On the other hand, if the realistically painted blasters were used in an official event like a Nerf game or Cosplay gathering, and clearance has been given by the relevant authorities in the area, there would be no issue with those blasters.So its mainly how the blaster is used and handled in public that matters.
hey, did u go to the nerf war at youthphoria last sat?i used a stampede with a 35-dart drum and it was syiok!
Adil,Nope, i wasn't there, was attending another Nerf game. :)The youthphoria game you attended sounds fun, any media coverage or photos of that event posted online yet?
When will it be in brunei? and can it use stock and barrel attachment?
when you are going to review this gun?
Could you please add my blog to the recommended sites list on the side of this blog? I really want to grow it so I get plenty of people reading it like your blog. Mines a little different, though. Please have a look at it at: http://nerfstuffisawesome.blogspot.com/ Thanks a lot.
u can check the facebook profile of youthphoria.but the nerf photos weren't that much
Many say that the alpha trooper is the replacement for the recon.
ya a bit look like a recon when i put my recon stock at the back of the alpha trooper

three masketears journey,I took the photo at Toys R Us Paragon in Singapore, but note that it was back in October 2010, this model seems to be all sold out locally now.
Is it still sold in Singapore now?
nerf lover(nerfers),They have already been sold out locally for quite a while... nowadays you'll have to order them from overseas or online.
