Default New toy crawler, anybody seen it?

I was in Target the other day and saw their is a new toy crawler out. This one is made by New Brite (or is it Bright?) and looked to be about 1/10 scale as aposed the 1/6th and 1/18th Nylints. I think it was $60.

Looked pretty interestering for a toy. As I recal it had a Rubicon body (hard plastic of course ). I liked the tires tread pattern, wouldn't mind getting some with the same pattern for my Clod if their were some available (they're Nitto replicas so I know their is no such thing available for the clod).

Just wondering if anybody else has seen it, as far as I know it must've just came out because I didn't see it their last Friday.

Pretty much except for the size and body, otherwise yeah it's pretty much the same junk.

I wouldn't get a new bright without custom upgrades. My first kinda rc was a green and black Hornet newbright. Gosh i loved it. I was only 9 tho. One day I decided it would be fun to run into some 1"x1" pieces of wood. First hit broke a shock mount. I wish i knew about superglue then. Tried to fix it with elmers lol. If i saw a cheap one i'd get it jus for the heck of memories. Point, they're fun until the durability becomes a factor. I heard it only gets like 30-40 degs of articulation too.
