Yes! A bit old if you can find one. BTW, the Mr. Potato Head mic takes some dexterity to work - it's covered all 'round with buttons/knobs/joystick. Not for large hands.
Solid rig though, plenty of power if you need it, and fairly tight front end (I have one). And probably like any mobile with 10W+ output, best directly connected to the car battery.
