    I found him yesterday in my local (in Michigan) Kmart's toy department for $44.99. He's cute, but out of proportion. I'll pick him up eventually.

    Or he's already at retail now (outside of sharper image and their overpriced stock) at near this price apparently lol.

    Today I found 3 of the Beatmix Bumblebees at my local KMART in Woodbridge, VA this afternoon. THe price was $47.69 (higher than walmart or target should have it for). I do not have a picture and did not buy one. Kmart placed these on the top shelf of the barbie aisle. Go figure.

    By comparison cyber stompin bee's unicron head is proportionagte as well as accurate. This abomimation is for heavily armed Ipod wielding wal mart shoppers.
    not us.

    I work at Fry's Electronics and we received this guy since about three -four weeks ago. A bunch of them sitting there on the shelves. I didn't know they were exclusive.

    I bought one @ the Sharper Image store in the maill attached to the Westin last week @ Botcon. Got the floor display for $29.99 + 20% off.

    It's an OK gadget. Honestly I'm not sure why I even bought it...guess it was b/c I got a good deal on it. At least the speaker on the unit is decent and the music played thru it sounds good.

    I picked mine up at Sharper Image in Providence during Botcon. The price at that time was 39.99. I think he is darling.

    I didn’t realize this was only at Sharper Image up to now. I saw one at K-Mart late last week.

    Can someone tell me if it's possible to use BB as speakers but to disable the movements when desired? I thought this might be cute to have on my desk at school, but I don't want it overly distracting my students.
