    Toyota kicked off their 3rd teaser for the upcoming Prius V by FedEx'ing 50 puzzle pieces to "some of the most influential people in the Prius community". It looks like I'm lucky to be considered fairly influential, because I just received my package a few minutes ago from the FedEx man.
    The package contains a physical puzzle piece, a USB drive, and a 10 Years of Prius badge to put on the Prius. It looks like the physical puzzle pieces are all the same (based on conversations with others who received packages this morning), so the puzzle is going to be put together using the images found on our USB drives. Click on the link below to hop into the PriusChat forums as we put together this puzzle and hopefully get a better look at the upcoming Prius V (Alpha).
    Put together the pieces to the puzzle in the PriusChat Forums

    Wow, exterior shot this time. Do you get the pieces in digital format? Just wondering if you had to scan it.

    Such a clever marketing idea, and a great way to keep the community engaged. :)

    What, he didn't take pics of the box? The piece on the USB drive is what really matters, since the physical piece is the same for everyone.

    Here's mine (my "real" puzzle piece, an INterior shot, is on my FB page):

    Mine just came about an hour ago, according to "she-who-must-be-obeyed". She said, "I duno ... it's just a puzzle piece!" Guess I'll see in in a couple hours, when I get home at 2pm today.

    Since 39 meshed with 46, it looks like a 7x7 matrix with one extra crammed in there somewhere.

    IOW, the initial pic is going to have to be much larger, or shrunk after each addition.

    Tony, yer slackin off! You have 33 and 34, link them already ;-)

    . . . . but I'm keeping the USB drive. I hope it lasts better than the bamboo covered one that some of us got at the Detroit Gen III reveal back in Jan. of '09.
