Wow! Still sealed! Amazing! A shelf queen is not in my budget, but it is still cool to see that those rare pieces are still out there. Thanks for letting us know about it.

I can see that this is the same one you won the other day for US$255 under bidding...

And I can still see the word "Replacement" in marker on the top of the box, which you've tried to clean off.

Personally I think the price is a little high-ish. Main reason being it's not a first release Bandit (or at least I'm thinking of the Baja Bandit) but rather the more neon-liveried one. You should be able to sell it for $300-$350. But $500 is kinda the price realm of NIB Countach and original NIB Hoppers...

But hey, good luck anyway.

Hey Hibernaculum,

Yep, it is the one that was sold a few weeks ago and the marker writing was removed mostly, which really improved the look of the box.

I have sold a couple of these NIB Bandits for $500 each a few years ago, so technically they should be worth even more now.  I know I can find a buyer that sees the value of these trucks and if I don't then I'll just keep it for myself ;D

Thanks for your input.

The link has been updated to the new auction; happy bidding guys!

You did well to remove the wring btw - how did you do it?
And for sure, if they've sold in the past for $500, then this one may as well. Things are usually cheaper under bidding, as we all know.

Best of luck with it!

Thanks, I just used some rubbing alcohol and it worked pretty well.  Yea, Tyco stuff was selling pretty hot a few years back, but has seemed to cool down quite a bit this year for some reason.  Guess we will see how it goes ;)
