    if you manage to get a few of these,please make a giveaway for these pinpoint sights,because they will probably be discontinued.That would be a really cool prize for people who follow your Blog,like me.

  3. I would be willing to bet they'll be released as a normal product after this promotion.

    1. I'd be more willing to bet the exact opposite.

      Think of it this way, would Hasbro make more money selling each of these for $13, OR if they instead gave these away free with each large $60 purchase?

      Anyone who wants one of these already knows it's real value, and are more than willing to pay for it (that includes me too) - this is a way of doing so without attaching a crazy-high price tag to the sight itself.

  6. So, I transit through Singapore the day after tomorrow... for five hours. Just short enough that they won't let me leave the airport. I come back through for a weeks' stay one month later, when I know it'll be gone.

    I'm gonna go off and cry now!

  8. Dear SG Nerf,

    I was wondering how the $60 can be accumulated and redeemed. Is it just for $60 worth of Blasters, or $60 worth of any Nerf Items, or $60 worth of any Nerf N-Strike Elite Items? My plan is too get some Elite Darts and I am planning to get 6 packs of the 30 Elite Darts. On an unrelated note, is the Hail-Fire worth getting? If I already have the Stampede, is it a comparable gun? Because I feel like the Hail-fire is a Barricade combined with the Rayven and enlarged. Hope you can answer my 2 questions.

    Thank you!

      From the promo announcement details, it indicates $60 worth of Elite blasters required... so i assume its only for Elite blaster purchases. I guess you'll have to check directly with the stores to clarify.

      The Hail-Fire basically a flywheel blaster like the Barricade or Rayven, its motors are designed to get better range and uses a carousel system to carry more clips... that allows for more ammo capacity but its also more bulky to carry and use.

      I guess it depends on whether you like flywheel type blasters in the first place (some people are annoyed by the buzzing feel and noise).

      Note that the Hail-Fire is still only semi-auto, not full-auto like the Stampede.

  9. So other than the colour and some minor detail changes, it will still function like the yellow pinpoint sight right?

  11. Hey SGNerf, how come only Singapore has these promotions while the U.S. doesn't?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Boss,

      It just depend on Hasbro's marketing campaigns tailored for different countries... there are special blaster and accessory promotions in the USA that are not available in Singapore too.

  12. Do you think it will be ever sold separately and not a promotional offer?

      I guess it could be possible, but so far still no news or announcements on whether that will happen though.

  13. Hi. just left singapore yesterday. i bought the elite stockade and elite retaliator for almost SGD 100 worth total and did not get this. i inquired at paragon, suntec before finally buying the two elite guns at vivo city without the scope. there is no scope promo according to the singaporean toys r us staff.

      Looks like those outlets have not received their stock of the promotional blue Pinpoint Sights yet... i guess the roll-out for the promo is still on-going.

  14. SGNerf,
    Do toys r us paragon still have the pin point sight? I am afraid that their stocks run out

  15. SGNerf,
    I have checked the facebook page and saw the comments. Most of them claimed that the Elite Pin-point sight is not available is many Toys "R" Us.
    I was confused and quite pissed off after seeing the comments cos I am heading to Paragon to buy my Rampage and get the Pin-point sight tmr -,-

      That's why you have to call the stores to check beforehand, cannot assume every outlet has stock... they might still be in the process of stocking the promotional items.

  16. Hi sg nerf and friends,

    do please help keep a look out for the stocks, those scopes are awesome to haves. Called TRU (City square, suntec, vivocity) today that the scope is not in yet for reason unknown. I'm not sure if it's true but the guy on the other side of the phone from suntec says it's going to be for the purchase of any elite blasters.

  17. does anyone have an updated version of the supermaxx 750 to sell i can not find one on ebay or any blogs?

  18. Hey sg, I have more of a general question, so I thought I should just post it here on the latest thread.

    My brother and I are disagreeing on whether our nerf guns should be stored cocked or uncocked to prevent stress on springs.

    If the gun makes a difference, I have a Retaliator and an Alpha Trooper, and he's got a Deploy, and we're both going to get our own Rampage soon. All are unmodded and unlikely to be modded in the near future.

    Thanks for the help!

      For all spring plunger based blasters, you should leave the spring un-primed when not in use, or else it can result in the spring weakening over time or the parts under-going extra unnecessary stress.

      It all depends on the outlets... if the Suntec City branch mentioned the promo will begin next week, then just contact them again next week to confirm that they have ready stock before you visit the store.

    1. Blursotong,

      Nerf Stampedes are currently sold out in Singapore... i guess you'll have to either wait for them to be re-stocked, or order them in from overseas/online stores.

  21. Hi sg nerf , I just bought a few nerf elite pinpont sights today from vivo city toys r us. If you happen to have a few more for sale could you sell some to me.

  22. Sights are out, I found mine at City Square mall. they go perfect with the retaliator but their $60 policy is strict. $59.90 does not count as $60 so I had to buy an extra pack of elite darts. So be prepared to spend close to $70.

    1. A cheaper alternative which might not be quite helpful to those who dislike Flywheel Blasters would be to get a Stockade for $39.90 and 2 Packs of 30 Round Elite Darts, which totals to just $63.70. This is the closest to the $60 limit and they allowed this for a successful redeem. I think the way to get it is to buy a blaster and you can add extras like darts to compensate the price difference. Have fun!

  23. SgNerf,
    I finally got the Elite Pin-Point Sight at Vivo City today. I think that I am the 4th person who got the Pin-Point Sight as the person asked me to sign my name, contact number, etc and saw that I am the fourth person who got it... So most probably there is still alot of stock left. Thanks SgNerf for posting this information:)

    Btw, I saw a image of the Nerf Elite Pin-Point Sight mounted onto a Elite Strongarm at both sides of the box. But in my opinion, the Strongarm might exist. However, the 'Elite Strongarm' on the box has the tactical rail on the cocking mechanism instead of in front of the cocking mechanism. This image is making me very confused.
    Whats your opinion SgNerf and guys? ;)

    1. Looi Jia Chek,

      The blue "Maverick" type blaster shown on the side of the box could just be a first generation blue Maverick (with abit of photoshop color-adjustment/rendering) or it could also be another new model.

      I guess we'll just have to wait and see. :)

    3. NERFWolverine,

      I'm referring to the promotion in Singapore, it is only valid for purchases of Elite blasters or accessories... the staff at the Toys R Us redemption counter will check the receipt to verify each purchase before issuing the free Pinpoint Sight.

  26. Hi SG Nerf, just wondering if you think buying just packs of darts and or elite clips would qualify to get a pinpoint sight if we spent over $60

    1. Anonymous,

      As long as the foam dart refills and accessories are from the Elite Series, they should also be valid too.

      But do double-check and confirm it with the staff at the stores before you do the purchase.

  28. Will Nerf make a sight that magnifies and makes it easier to see? Maybe one that they'll measure stuff so the dot on the scope is where you'll shoot?

      No idea... though i guess it's highly unlikely Nerf would make scopes with actual magnification, 'cos stock blaster ranges are still so short anyways. :)
