micro buggy...

As you know I bought an rc truggy recently. While researching on what to invest in, I came across micro buggies. They were from Takara Tomy under their Q-Steer series, which are micro rc vehicles. Its actually a collaboration effort between Tamiya and Takara Tomy to create micro scaled replicas of Tamiya's infamous offroad buggies. It comes with proper suspension and a slightly more powerful motor.

The moment I saw it I had to get my hands on one. I read online that they were rather hard to come by in Malaysia as they came in limited supply but that didn't deter me. Today I headed out to 1Utama to check out Toys R Us. Sadly none there. Then I went straight into Jaya Jusco's toy section and lo and behold, there was ONE box left! :D

It wasn't really the model I wanted but hey beggars can't be choosers right?! So now I am a proud owner of The Frog micro buggy (RM59.90). Damn this baby can run and its fun to ride em' all over the room. The added suspension helps as it can run on my bed or keyboard without issues. Hehe. I know I know I sound like a kid. :P

To give you a little perspective on how small this bugger is. Ain't it cute? LOL. If only I can get my mates to all get one then we can be racing about in office or something. Great way to release stress I tell ya! ;)
