Default Soze finally joins the Venture gang!

When the HPI Venture was announced as a FJ Cruiser, I was interested. So I waited... and waited... and waited. By the time it came out, I still waited. They announced the SBK, so I decided to wait some more.

Finally over the holidays, they dropped the RTR price and combined with the ebay Coupons, it made more sense for me to pick up the RTR since I wanted the FJ body. Adding all the parts for the FJ body on top of the SBK came out to almost the same price as the RTR. (Until they recently dropped the SBK price).
