      Chester, thanks for the information, I was trying to figure out what
      prototype it was. What about scarcity? Is 5 years a long production
      run for an item? Also, being so old is it rare or is it a fairly
      common item for its age? I managed to get it for 100 bucks off of
      ebay and was wondering if I got a good deal on it?
