    the product is dying a lonely death in the back shelves of K-Mart, along with the Crush Gear toys.
    That's the name i remember....i've heard of the "Barcode Battlers" before but this is the only one i remember actually seeing in America

    scannerz was crap. Like Tomagatchi[sic] but even more worthless.

    Apparently this brand is still alive and well, i just saw an update, where apparently you plug collectable monster discs into the outside of a ball and then the monsters (apparently) do battle inside this opaque death ball.
    This toy may fly if it were cheap, but its pretty expensive, and seems about as good an idea as those crappy Megaman NT Battle Network toys.
    I wish toy companies would give their money to Jakks Pacific to make more nice Plug-N-Play Games titles, some of them are really good.

    In summary, Scannerz is alive and well down under, our toy companies are stupid.
