Similar to that of the Clear Series and the Sonic Series, the Sonic ICE series features blasters with clear blue plastic.
The line was first discovered on an online auction from the website Baidu in June of 2013; there was a sale for what we now know is a Sonic ICE Retaliator shoulder stock. At the time, this led to speculation of another line, referred to by some as "N-Strike Elite Pro". The name of the line was identified in late June 2013 from a boxed photo of the Rampage.
The Sonic ICE series was the first N-Strike Elite sub-series to consist of re-released blasters; the other N-Strike Elite sub-series, N-Strike Mega, featured entirely new blasters.
