CAUTION: AMAZON SHIPPING FAKE ROCKET AIR BLASTERS
on April 26, 2013
Long time user of Giottos blasters. Got a new camera and wanted another medium one. Pulled it out of the box and first thing I noticed was the sticker Giottos uses to seal the package was undone and dirty. Then I pulled the rocket out of the package and BAM was hit with a whiff of horrible rubber smelling compound. None of my other rockets smelled AT ALL! And I've had them in hot bags and everything. This one smells like cooked rubber. Then I compared it to a genuine black medium blaster I bought a year ago, and it is fake. Does not have the inspection sticker on the Nozzle, the mold lines are different, and the smell is just awful.
This was sold and shipped by Amazon, no a third party. So to Amazon, you have a batch of fake rockets. I've already begun the return/ exchange process, but I sincerely hope Amazon that you send me a genuine rocket in exchange.
My 1 star rating is for amazon and to alert people that there are fakes. As a product, these are really, really awesome when you get the genuine one.
