    This is interesting - according to Brickseek, the MSRP for this toy is $58.00, and Walmart has it at a 14% discount to bring it to $49.97 . . .

    Real life trucks use them to get rid of exhaust gases caused by fuel combustion. They're vertical so they can blow the hot noxious gas well away from people.

    I'm happy to see the reissues continue into 2019. This way a new generation of people get a chance to play with these great figures!

    Picked one up from that North Bergen location this morning. Yeah, this isn’t worth $50 but I’ll hold onto it and just get a price adjustment when it eventually gets discounted.

    Damn, for something I am still on the fence about, I’d better stay away from Walmart for a while, cause I am a weak, weak man.
