Ladies and gentleman,
Good evening, it's just a coincidence when I found a friend said it's hard to get reviews for XINGBAO XB-03012 Red Monster Truck, so I also tried in google and can't find any useful review for it. As in my remember, it had been published more than half year and has get much good review ( it's very popular in our wish store ), so there should be some reviews for it.
