Well, technically it's not exactly
the same. Same mold, but this one has a fair amount of weathering on it that's not on the POTJ version, along with a few added "blast" marks. I'll be picking up another one to keep MIMB, and probably one more as well to keep loose, just due to the slightly different paint apps. Yes, I'm a freak like that. Please no flaming, thank you!
It's nice to see this vehicle getting refreshed out on the retail market again, as it was a pretty difficult find for many folks the first time around. I know I never saw the POTJ version in stores - had to pick up a couple on the trading boards.
BTW, there's a store report in our forums here (the Indy section) of possibly finding these at a K-mart. Is this still solely a WM exclusive? Perhaps that was just a typo in that store report... Anyone know for sure?
