Like I Needed a New Bot

I had nearly forgotten about my lowball bid on an S2 robot, but I just won an unopened S2 for $10 (plus $8 shipping). My swarm grows and the fire rises...

  • Great price for brand new!

    Seller is in my neck of the woods. I could have saved the $8.00 shipping cost. (and put $10.00 gas in the Suburban to get there and back) :)

    I thought of that after I won it. You could have hovered over there and brought it to me in NYC next year! :)
