I could also kind of see that scenario but I think you might change your mind once you see the prices and the quality... maybe. I'm on the fence.

You are right. I haven't seen the product yet so it may be too cheaply made for me to want to display on my shelf

I know this is an old posting, I wish I would have read it prior to taking my 9 year old son to the store. He recently started using some older cars at home and became re-interested in them, so he was excited about this car. He did enjoy the process (although I think they have a lot of opportunity to improve with some better organization, signage and assistence) but there was not $70+ of enjoyment, especially with his eventual disappointment.
We did not spring for the $5 9V battery, so we did not get to try out the R/C (what kid is not going to want the R/C option) until we stopped by Walmart and got back to the Hotel this evening. UGH, the RC was very week, would only run on the hard wood flood, would barely roll on the hard hotel floor carpet. The bigger issue is that the car will not steer and acceperate at the same time, I think the R/C unit in the car is defective. Letting off the "gas" in order to steer was very confusing and eventually frustrating for my son, he lost interest in about 30 min due to the poor performance.
I hope to get to stop by the store before we leave to see if they can make good on getting us a car that at least will steer while accelerating. Not something I would recommend or return to at this point. I should have used the $$ to buy him what he wanted at the Lego store.
