WTB a tyco!
« on: January 04, 2010, 13:55:09 »
Hi guys i just posted my intro in the welcome section with all the other ones! Im interested in buying a  TYCO RC car! The models i want are Bandit/Hammer/Fast Traxx/Rebound/outlaw/eliminator. they do not need to be mint just in working condition for enjoyment :)

I seen that tyco is still making cars but crappy ones since there with mattel. I have a mattel corvette and its ok to play with but im looking for one of the ABOVE to play outside. The corvette is so low to the ground that it barely can go onto the pavement without bouncing over rocks and junk!  Thanks guys for you help and BTW i LOVE all of your collections! i have spent about 3 hours today going through the threads looking at your cars and they are very nice!

i hope i can find one that it at a reasonable price. Tyco and mattel are making SLOWER more sissyfied R/C products that what they did when i was a kid.

I was wondering about the new Tyco vehicles. I just assumed that they weren't quite as good as the old ones, but I wasn't quite sure how.

Yes, but that isn't likely going to compare their new R/C cars to the old ones.

Did you see that Heads Up Turbo Hopper went for US $80.99! It did have some Bandit parts with it, but still seems a bit high to me.

woosah 95 bucks it went for a bit more than what i thought it would of


not to crowd this wtb ad up but i was the one who paid a bit to much, i was bidding on the tyco harley davidson truck and didnt get back in time to bid again but was also watching the eliminator, i bid 70 before i seen the 25 shipping but wasnt to concerned since i was outbid on it, then a few days later i look and have a ebay email one saying theres been a bid retraction and iam now top bidder and then one saying i won.....sucked but still a cool truck. was really just hunting for a black bandit or the black fast traxx truck.
actually, i did win the black fast traxx truck yesterday that was on ebay after watching the asking price come down from nuts to just expensive, was a toss up between it and the orange truck, but i would part with the eliminator if anyones such as the poster of this ad


my current r/cs

bad boy black bandit-40+

nib red bandit

red bandit in box

black bandit stock

hobby graded suspension bandit

black fast traxx truck
