    Picked up 2 different 3 packs of Bigfoot diecast trucks at Toys R Us today($9.99 a pack), included was a somewhat decent 30 minute dvd including a trailer for the new Bigfoot game for Wii coming out later this year.... Looks alot like Urban Assualt aside from one thing... sled pulling :eek:

    Well apparently somebody else found them too over on the monster truck collectors site, heres a few pics i borrowed from DethXMachine over on MTC. They are just re-chassised Smart Bean Rough Rider trucks but at a fraction of the price of what they cost from Foot or at shows, plus lights and sounds. They are a Toys R Us exclusive and TBH the Dvd alone is worth the 10 bucks. Lots of late 90's early to late 00's footage on it. Then heres another set they had, didnt look very realistic so i left it but definentaly picked up both 3 packs http://www.toysrus.com/product/index.jsp?productId=11785557

    You know what the pulling part sold me on the new game. Heck that is why I bought "Sprint Cars 2 Showdown at El Dora"

    The bodies are good, no question there. As mentioned before, they're the same as the single-packaged Rough Riders that are available. Good detail on them. Only exception is the nose looks more like a Chevy Silverado and no Ford emblem. Probably did have authorization from Ford. The chassis also still leave plenty to be desired. They win in the proportional tire category vs. Monster Jam 1/64ths!

    Honestly I think if the chassis were black they wouldn't look half bad

    I doubt they care whether they are on ford-bodied trucks or not anymore, since every Bigfoot truck is simply listed as a "Pickup" now.

    wow, brain lapse on my part. Yes, the Ford body would make more sense if the sponsorship was in place.

    Looks like they just took the bodies off the ones that they sell at Monster Nationals events and put them on a new plastic chassis.

    The black chromolustion looks pretty cool.

    The video game looks good. I don't mind the traditional Monster Jam style of video games because let's face it besides MTM2 being on the computer, it was the originator of this style. And was that the green burst Snake Bite I saw in the video game trailer? I know you had the Firestone Foot and Miss Bigfoot in it.

    As for the toys, they look cheap. The bodies look meh (Ford grill aside as Bigfoots are now Bigfoot pickups) and the chassis look ugly. Nice to see those paint schemes on sale though, but the toys look too weird for me.

    I bought the two 3-packs and the ramp set today. Through Aug 20th they are Buy 1 get 1 50% off! Definitely a good score for only $30+ tax.
