Did you know that some of the 75 feet versions of N-Strike Elite was shipped in the Phillippines? You might not agree, but I got one. That's my proof! So, should we report it to Hasbro or not? Pls. comment.

Are they illegal or something in the Philippines?

Uh, yeah. 75 foot-long versions of any dart gun is unfathomable. I'm guessing you meant 7.5 because 75 is unbelievable.

If you didn't order anything of the sort, send it back. It's illegal to receive something in the mail meant for someone else and keeping it.

So it's 75 feet long, or does it shoot 75 feet away?

The dart blaster that I have is the Rough Cut 2x4. Like I said, mine shoots 75 feet.

So you went to Toys 'R' Us, bought it, realized that the store having them was an accident (how do you know they weren't supposed to be there?), and you want to know if you should report it. Unless there's a legal issue or a recall, keep it. You paid for it. If it was really an accident, for a company to redistribute a few crates of inventory out of a country would likely be more of a hassle than it's worth anyway, especially if the items are selling.

Aside from the Rough Cut 2x4, there are also the 75 feet versions of the Retaliator. There are only few 15 meter, safe versions of the N Strike Elite. Wierd isn't it!

Because, the international version should be 15 meters.

Well, it doesn't seem like there is anything to worry about. As long as you don't shoot anybody in the face, I don't see a problem (I would keep it.)

75 feet is the firing range.

The international version should be 15 meters.


1 meter = 3.28084 feet
15 meters = 49.2126 feet

Non-international version = (about) 50 ft
International version = 75 ft

That's only 15 feet, not really that much of a difference, especially with indoor use.
