I don't want to take away any of your joy with it and I hope I won't but... I have to agree with Stratos on this one. A carpeted version for sub $200 is a good deal. Yes - carpeted, because the 'standard' re-release does not have it. Minichamps dug very old tooling out of its grave, cut some corners and slapped a Kyosho near-Aa price tag on it. They knew they could milk people dry on this one and well, they did.
