    Unless the guns actually pop out of the bodywork by radio control I'll be leaving these on the shelf.
    I somewhat doubt they do, especially looking at Barricades uh.. things.

    You guys have to understand that these are customizable R/C cars. I don't think there's much room inside aside from space for the engine, batteries and whatever else. I could be wrong though. There's a decent community for these cars and maybe someone will eventually rig something up that'll allow these turrets and guns to pop up at the push of a button.

    Unlike your average R/C car though, these suckers are highly customizable. You can change out the suspension, engine, tires and various body parts. I had thought that Radio Shack was discontinuing their XMods line of R/C cars until reading this announcement. Their not the most detailed customizable R/C cars out there, but at $40-$50, they're much more affordable than the $100+ models you'd find elsewhere.

    I have one of these xmods already, the toyota supra. Nice little R/C car, only good on very flat surfaces but still are pretty sweet for $40.

    Radio Shack will not be shelving any Transformers toys until after June 2nd. We have a company wide hold date in place and our RSS will not allow sale until that time. We'll be having these XMods, the Zip Zaps, some IR Pen cars, the voice changer and the stompers... and a few more items. It should be fun!
