Anyone notice the irony, that all the text on this Mexican Convention Exclusive is in English? Shouldn't the text being in the primary language of the country it is exclusive to, seems logical, but then again that's Hasbro for you.

Thoughts por favor?   :P

Perhaps this means it won't be limited to just the Mexi-Con...I hope that's the case

Wow, what a bargain. For a little more than that I could fly down there, buy the toy, and catch a donkey show.  :-\

I see these are running $50-$60 on eBay right now, none currently available though :-\

So, has there been any further rumor about these being made available through the Fan Club or anyone else at a reasonable price? I'm starting to think I really want one of these things, but it still is pretty pricey.

Brian's Toys had these up for sale in Chicago, but they were all in poor condition.  And he still had the nerve to ask $65 a piece for these.  What a crock just to buy a box!

Holy ****!  I apparently never even saw the final product, thinking it would be a rather cheesy knockoff like last year's, or like the Germany exclusive.  Funk dat!  This thing is freakin' beautiful!   :o  Definitely just skyrocketed to the top of my 'Wants List'...   8)

Dude! How'd you miss this thing??? The packaging is gorgeous. ToyPalace in Germany wants like $72.00 for it right now. I just wish I knew if we were going to have a shot at it or not, because that's just too pricey.

You need a better system to jog your memory, old timer. May I suggest polaroids?



Sorry, lame excuse for me to post a new anti-hasbro image.  ::)
