Not ATL according to CCC, that was Dec 2018, but matches lowest price within last 2y. Full price still at Lego, Amazon, Indigo and Mastermind.

Someone in previous thread mentions it needs 6AAA batteries but some preliminary research shows it can be hooked up to usb power.

Why the downvotes though? Too expensive? Bad product?

Was looking for something stem related for a kid and this caught my eye.

Thanks, OP! Nice find. Been looking at this for a while. Was hesitant at $199, but I'm in for 1 at this price. Still expensive, but you're paying for the sensors and motors. I might even let my kids play with it...

Unavailable, angry downvotes.

Great deal and the nice thing is some school's have this. Downside is...can't use it right now learning at home.

Going to keep eye out, this is something that can be used for years on end.

Ah I see, too bad it's OOS. Fingers crossed if it comes back on sale. A robot kit + Lego pieces for $139.99 (with UGO Walmart extra GC) looks decent to me unless there are options I am not aware of.
