Elite Suction Darts on Toys R Us Japan website

It's the type of dart you either like or don't. For some, it's the dart they've been hoping would return eventually and now Elite Suction Darts are here.

Credit goes to Gavinfuzzy from the Nerf sub-Reddit for this find.

These were found on the Japanese Toys R Us website last night and will be selling for ¥‎699 (AU$6.55) when they come out in March 2014. The RRP is ¥‎735 (AU$7.93).


If you take a close look at the heads of the dart, there is no overhang from the rubber head, the diameter remains the same for the length of the dart and it says on the box that these are compatible with all Elite blasters! Yes, these will fit into a clip!


If the release date is accurate (20/03/2014) then there will be some waiting involved before these are available anywhere. We can only speculate if these will be a Japanese exclusive or will eventually released world wide, but, hey. There is always eBay right?. The product description goes (via Google Translate):

Product Description:
Sucker type micro darts 30 bullet set ultimate version that corresponds to the blaster elite series of all. ※ There is the case that is slightly different image and the actual product.

To he honest, I never was a fan of the ol' sucker darts. I'm a fan of aerodynamics and sucker darts just don't have it. But, I do know there are a lot of fans out there of the sucker dart that will be elated at their return.

  2. Never liked the suction darts, and they probably wont fly as far because of that tip, catching a lot of air, but I guess for indoor use they would be fine.

  3. Awesome! It'd be fun to shoot them out of a Rapidstrike at a window... :)
