To the barricades with your Nerf weapons.

Push the limits of Nerf blaster performance and expectations with an innovative collection of N-Strike and Elite blasters that strive to be faster, better, and in a class all their own. Neff has amped up dart blaster performance with the introduction of the N-Strike Elite blasters in 2012; this year's exciting new addition, the Nerf N-Strike Elite Centurian Blaster ($49.99, ages eight and up), has to be seen (and fired) to be believed.

Feel the power when you wield this mighty toy weapon, which possesses an unparalleled 100foot dart firing capability, the farthest in Nerf history. The Centurian also features the new whistling Mega dart, measuring over twice the size of a standard Elite dart--and it screams through the air when fired. With this formidable blaster, fans will enjoy unprecedented power, precision, and distance. It comes with removable biped, one six-dart clip, and six MEGA darts.

Nerf also delivers major girl power this fall with the launch of Rebelle. Combining active play with social interaction, the global lifestyle brand provides girls with a new play experience. Inspired by current pop culture trends and based on insight from real girls, the brand is designed to empower players with confidence, high performance action, and a stylish edge. From sleek and powerful cross-Rebelle bows to trend-setting accessories and a digitally enhanced world of app play, the lineup delivers the ultimate in social active play and gaming adventure, encouraging players to work together, complete missions, and share the fun with friends. Hasbro will expand the offering later this year as the brand enters new categories, including apparel and accessories.

It's time to step up and stand out with the Rebelle Heartbreaker Bow ($19.99, ages eight and up). The ultimate adventure accessory, this device features "true" bow action and powerful dart performance. The Heartbreaker offers girls the poise and precision to take on any mission. To activate the bow, simply load a dart in the front and take aim. Then, pull back on the string handle and release to send darts soaring across the sky up to 75 feet. It features an accessory rail that provides for five-dart storage for easy access to ammo and allows girls to customize their blaster with fun add-ons, like the Mission Central App Cradle (sold separately). The Heartbreaker Bow comes with five collectible darts.

The Rebelle Guardian Crossbow ($24.99, ages eight and up) is an impressive piece as well. With fast-flying dart action and flexing bow arms, it blends blaster action with crossbow precision. Slide the front handle to flex the bow arms back and ready the blaster for play. Pull the trigger and watch the bow arms propel forward as darts soar up to 75 feet toward the target. By holding the trigger and pumping, players can transition instantly between single-and multi-shot mode, unleashing a rapid stream of darts for nonstop action. It includes six collectible Nerf Rebelle darts.

Finally, freestyle foam disc blasting is the name of the game with Nerf Vortex blasters. The XLR discs encourage creative fun with their ability to bank, curve, ricochet, and catch big air. New this year is the Vortex Revonix360 Blaster ($39.99, ages eight and up), which achieves the farthest Vortex distance yet, up to 70 feet. This item features new deco and has a revolving drum that rotates each time it is fired. Plus, the Slam Fire Handle gives you total control over your rate of fire--blast a single shot or hold the trigger down and slide the handle repeatedly to unleash an unstoppable stream of discs. It includes 30 multi-color XLR discs.

All of these Nerf products are available at most major toy retailers nationwide and HasbroToyShop.com.
