New Nerf guns: Magstrike and Longshot

Cube warriors rejoice. Nerf is coming out with two new guns this Fall. The Magstrike is a ten round clip-fed machine gun with two clips, and the Longshot is a six-shot sniper rifle with a scope and bipod. From Nerf's press release:

Pump up the action with the NERF DART TAG MAGSTRIKE blaster, the first NERF rapid fire blaster with a clip reloading system! With a rapid firing air pressure system that allows kids to quickly blast foam darts at their opponents and a stock for comfortable blasting and pumping, this awesome blaster brings great fast-paced fun to the popular NERF DART TAG line.

Update: I talked to Nerf's PR firm about getting images for these. They won't be available until some time in the Fall. When I get the images, I'll post them.
