Lookin' For My Lotso

As you may know, Toy Story 3 is coming out on June 18th. One of the most exciting things about this for me is the introduction of Lotso, the first major character in the Toy Story series to be a stuffed animal...not to mention the fact he's apparently the villain, which only makes him more appealing to me.

However, there's a catch: it is near impossible to find any Lotso merch in stores right now - even the stuff that's actually been released already - and the stuff that you can find is outrageously expensive (a LEGO dump truck for 40 dollars!?).

Probably the best bit of Lotso-ness I have found at this time is a toy Matchbox truck with Lotso tied to the front (heh, so much for trying not to spoil it - I know that's the ending of the movie from the Art Of book) that speaks various phrases when you push him. I am debating whether or not to buy this or to just hold my horses till' the full-size, interactive Lotso toy (pictured above - yep, that's a real toy, not a movie screencap) comes out on June 1st.
