A limited quantity of VEXplorer robotics systems will be available for pre-order through participating online toy, hobby, discount merchandise and consumer electronic retailers including amazon.com, target.com, toysrus.com, fredmeyer.com, walmart.com, hobbytownusa.com, towerhobby.com, greatplanes.com, compusa.com, discoverthis.com, etoys.com and hammackerschlemmer.com. The suggested retail price for VEXplorer is $199 (USD).

Since VEXplorer's introduction at various robotics and toy events and being featured in Robot magazine, consumer buzz and retailer demand has been phenomenal," said Mike Brezette, Revell marketing vice president. "We're excited the community has expressed such early interest in being part of taking the consumer robotics category to new heights with Revell. Our online pre-sales program allows our most enthusiastic fans access to the first units to roll off the production line."

VEXplorer is a robotics system that provides endless opportunities for novice inventors and robotics fanatics to build and operate robots to do what they want. VEXplorer features a "Spycam" color camera with sound that lets you control the action from a TV screen, a claw that is so precise and strong it can pick up a feather or grip a filled, 12-ounce soda can, and all-terrain wheels. Also packed with the unit is SolidWorks Student Design Kit software to create various configurations on a computer before building the unit. VEXplorer provides versatility and ease of construction so that inventors can be controlling and exploring with their robot in less than an hour. VEXplorer will also challenge those inventors with more experience, as it has over 300 parts allowing for individualized design. Just like the Mars Explorer, VEXplorer is operated by radio control.
