I mentioned in another thread that I own this item, but it was given to me without the original packaging (though I did get the original manual), and while I've heard some info about it's availability etc, not very much. I was told that while these were mass produced (obviously), they were released in smaller numbers than some other items (probably because of the cost to manufacture them). I've never seen them in stores anywhere near where I live (I'm limited to Wal-Mart and sometimes K-Mart, unless I drive really far, then there's TRU and Target as well), and the listings for them on eBay seem to be very rare, though the name by which they're listed varies a bit from time to time. Anybody have any info on these suckers? It's one of my favorite pieces in my collection (mainly because it's so cool and I'd never have been able to afford it myself), and I'd like to know a little more about it's rarity or lack thereof.
