    Saw them at the TRU in Bailey's Crossroads in Alexandria, VA today. Didn't pick it up though.

    Good to see you guys got it. :D  Wasn't sure if it would make it over there, with Scalextric being a British company who don't sell much beyond the domestic market.

    Cool. Probably see it at toys r us. It's really the only toy store I know of that even carries slot cars.

    I've really been waiting for this one. Better than zip zaps.

    Now I remember that I saw that weeks ago and it didn't occur to me to mention anything. Costs more than I want to put down on it though.

    Grabbed it today - glad to see it coming out, considering the marketing guys on the Hasbro tour flat out said we weren't getting it in the US! Plans change, I suppose.

    TRU in Greenwood, Indiana has it. Was so excited. Then I looked at it. BORING. Cars are pathetic. From what I remember, all you got were the two shitsey cars and 10 feet of track. Thats it. For $60.

    I saw it and picked it up. It's an interesting oddity. Expensive, but interesting.
