    You know, if you really do want one, the prices have been slashed down to $100 on Amazon.

    they need to scale it up to a huge sort of all terrain armoured transport and sell them to an evil empire.

    $100 you say, i may have to buy.

    Well, no wonder. Though kinda cute, it’s really silly.

    Very sad. I have one. Always wanted it and now it just collects dust in the corner although every now and then I power him up and realize how technically cool he really is.

    Huh, forget I said that. Looks like the price jumped up to $200. Glad I got an order in while I did!
