Yep. I passed up the pervious version that they had once and I have regretted it since.

Here is a little more info on it than that article. http://www.space.com/16844-mars-rovers-hot-wheels-mattel-toys.html

I happen to have one of those old Mars Lander sets available for trade, iowastockcars. PM me if you're interested.

NASA's Curiosity Rover is scheduled to land on Mars this weekend. After watching the CG animated demo of the rather complicated decent, I'll be amazed if they land the thing in one piece. The decent procedure of the previous Mars lander(which was also much smaller) used parachutes & balloons to slow it down and allow it to bounce on the surface...the new one uses parachutes with multi-stage retro-rockets combined with an intricate wire tether system to slowly lower the Rover onto the Martian surface. They might be leaning on "the techno" a bit too much, IMO...we'll see.

I want this one.

You probably already know, but Curiosity landed safely on Mars and is happily off exploring and finding alien life forms.

Im wondering if this will be released at K-Mart days. I think I saw it has a September release and the first K-Days is in September.
