Well, that was quick. We mentioned Ion's fancy drum kit yesterday, which will be released around when Rock Band 2 ships, but works with both Rock Band games, and now we've got a price and a press shot of the Drum Rocker.

Although we've seen a picture of the Rock Band Wii drum kit before, IGN has gotten its hands on the final retail product.
