I know I do, but I'm not quite sure I would like to spend $150 to get one. :) While it is a little cheaper than the actual one $150 is still on the high side. The company Code 3 is releasing a 1/10 scale model of the rover made from resin and die-cast.

...or you could get one from Lego for $90 and be able to play with it. :)
