Since they "grew", I have been calling them Groonies; Sheryl has been calling them "Grownies" since the themes are more "grownup."

Great idea. I can only echo what Buzz just said. I was never a big fan of the Goonies. But, with reproducing the original concept drawings, upgrading the motors, it is an awesome idea, with much more (current) mass appeal. I think you've got a winner here.

Are the Groonie Grownies going to be next? Or the "Thunder" birds? or the Omega/Cineroc? Can't wait.
