I agree it was somewhat of an odd choice, it's not exactly an iconic vehicle by any stretch. I appreciate that they tried something different with the playset features too, lackluster as they may be.
That said, I am a hardcore completist and have felt barely any interest in picking this up. Oh, I definitely will at some point, but after the first couple of weeks it became apparent these weren't going anywhere and a serious price reduction would inevitably be coming.
I'd bite for $50 from a brick and mortar...I can't see buying something this big and having it arrive unscathed from any online joint, especially HTS.
