For about the same price with it being on sale?

Available online as well.

Looks like a new box design.

I picked it up at Walmart for $15.00 + tax. Unfortunately it died after about 20 minutes of play. Anybody else having trouble with theirs? Tried new batteries but it runs really slow and stops after maybe 5 minutes. Probably a motor problem...

Man, Wal-Mart kills everything! These quality control issues are likely why Mark ordered 11 of them. I'll have to take a chance on this regardless.

Has anyone else tried theirs? Am I the only one with a faulty one?

I'm not sure where the original Loopin' Louie was made (Germany?), but the new TCG version is made in China. Not sure if it's a cheaper reverse-engineered version that won't last, or if I'm just unlucky and got a fluke defective one.

Anybody know how to get in contact with TCG? Their HR department is on LinkedIn (not helpful) and the only other info I could find was a reference to toys@canadagroup.com (to which I sent a message), but I'm not 100% sure that's a valid TCG email address.

Picked it up this weekend for 30% off at Zellers with the "going out of business" sale.

It's final sale so even if it doesn't work I probably can't get a refund.

Just bought two of these at Toy R Us for $14.97 each. One of them seems to be working, the other worked for about 1 second and is now dead. Going to head back and get it exchanged, but have a feeling its going to be hit and miss.

Crap, I guess I'll have to open the box and test the game to know for sure.
