Roboraptor Combo Pack

With the advent of the Mini Roboraptor, 's baby brother, there's been a buzz growing about the Roboraptor Combo pack. I've checked around at a bunch of the store's and eBay, and it doesn't seem to be that big of a deal. All the combo packs basically consist of the Roboraptor and a mini Roboraptor. What's really silly is that many of the combo packs I have seen are the same price or higher than just going to a store and buying the units together!

My advice is to go to Amazon and check their prices first, before you order a combo pack from an online store or eBay. That way, at least you'll know if you are getting a good deal or not. The Mini Roboraptor has a very limited set of functions; it pretty much just walks and has arms and a jaw you can move manually; nothing like his big brother who has clever behaviors that change with his personality setting. But I've got one because heck, it's cute and it's a great gift for someone.

For easy checking, here is Amazon's Roboraptor page and their Mini Roboraptor page.
