Arrow Want your own Mars Exploration Rover?

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.










Here are some pre-production pictures. (These are better.)

The Mars Exploration Rover can be found here and shipping is expected to happen this month.

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