PROS: Excellent sculpting and deco, and the lights are a perfectly festive touch. LED lights are bright and the button batteries are included (preinstalled). 3 lighting modes give the collector options, although I suspect most will choose the solid (non-flashing) setting.
CONS: Must be a PG Member to purchase ($120) which will probably drive the after market price higher in the future. Fragile antennae could easily break if not handled properly.
