One comment we received: "Pretty cool concept... until someone slashes through it with a knife to get your stuff... Also the blinking headlights are kind of creepy."

That GINA BMW's really cool, although it's far from revolutionary... these babies've been roaming the streets of eastern europe for decades. Comes with real leather too :o)

I don't think those aliens look cuddly. I think they look like the government squad guys in Brazil.

If you want them to look cuddly, paint them in pastels.
