It must be a different model. I was lucky enough to have my wife get me one for Christmas, first I had seen or heard of it. I came and did a search here to see if anyone had seen it yet, but someone else beat me to it I see.

At any rate, for a kids R/C toy this model seems very well detailed, turns left and right (with accompanying turn signals, along with headlights and back-up lights), has engine sounds and you can open and close the doors remotely. What really got me though was that it is true four wheel drive (In low gear, okay, it has open diffs unfortunately), and the axles articulate somewhat. I’m attaching a couple of photos. I shot a couple of small movies of it running over some books and a rock if someone can host them, or show me where to post them (bigger pics too if anyone wants to see them)for your guys, see what happens…

P.S. – I called today to try to order another one (to paint up like my yellow 90), but they said they were soldout and not getting anymore

Happy Update. For kicks I decided to try and order one from the website, since it still showed them in stock. The order went through, and I received a shipping confirmation along with tracking information. UPS shows it in transit for delivery this friday, so Pottery Barn apparently still has some, how many I do not know. Makes me made though that the phone operator said they had no more....

I got one (actually two; I broke the first one. FYI It needs a front skid plate). Wife knows me well. Boudreaux (the dog) loves to chase it and drool on it.

???? The link still seems to work for me, and they still show the item available, just not available in pre-wrapped form. Mine came a day early (yesterday). I also found them here...


http://www.mailorderexpress.co.uk/

But they show currently out of stock. They also have a police or fire version as well...

Duh, I'm an ass. The problem was I was clicking on the link in the quoted post. and not the full link.

Page is still there and I was able to order one.

The Pattery Barn Kids by my house has ten or monre of the in stock still. They are planning to send the to the Pottery Barn Closeout store in Columbus at the end of the month. Should be down to thirty dollars then. According to the store clerk, they have not been selling well at all. No one knows what the are. I may try to pick up a couple when they hit the outlet mall.

Matt...

One to keep stock and one to Modify

I was just going to say, I will grab another if they get that low for that very reason.
