TRU has these listed for $40. A little high IMO but cool for sure.

The flash makes it look great. I'm trying different lighting for another video.

By the way, you probably shouldn't test your subs while she's taking a bath.

I think the SKU numbers are the ones on the barcode. If so, the grey one has 20057062, and the white one has 20057063.

Are they in stock already, of just listed? If they're in stock now, I think I'm going to be sick. I would have gladly paid $40 for them.

I think $40 is a great price considering their performance. The only other static diver I've had was the Trumpeter clone of the Graupner U-16. It cost more but didn't work nearly as well as this one.

It was at TRU in Rockford, IL. I was tempted to buy it for my trip to FL where we will have a pool available. But with just IR, I hesitated.

i have found these online both at toys r us, and amazon.com.

amazon had the better deal, but both are around $40.00

search for "Air Hogs Velocity Divemaster" on tru, and "Air Hogs dive master" on amazon.

OK, I'm crying now. The price we pay to have the latest and greatest!

Oh, well, I'm still enjoying mine. ...even if it's not as rare and valuable as I was led to believe.

Thanks tsenecal, i couldn't even find spin master on their site.

Rick, you probably got some pre production samples or very early test samples before they got distributed.

I think you'll find it to be well worth the $41. Now that I have a static diver that actually works, I'm kind of losing interest in my other subs. My modified Nikko (with its vertical prop to drag it into the deep) is the best dynamic diver I have. Yeah, I know it's a bit of a cow. I guess it did too much of this ==>

Is it really worth it? Or is it the novelty that has everyone excited? It's sure cute, but I am without a fish tank...
