They didn't call it an Elite blaster, but the writing is on the wall . . . of the blaster if you look closely in a shot.
They don't have any official images yet, but are working on getting us some beauty shots and a little more info.
You can see the extra piece -the nub on the bottom of the grip so that you can prime each blaster by using the grip of the other. This is something we saw on the Firestrike blaster when the Elite line was coming out.
I'm really interested in seeing how convenient the trigger assembly is to use when the blaster is 'whole'. From this image, I almost wonder if there won't be too much separation to comfortably use it in that form.
As you may know, we are starting to come up on the season where Nerf officially announced plans for Fall 2015 and generally we hear about Christmas soon after - or, at least what feels like soon after. Let us know what other questions you may have! ~Chris
