Yea its the two red ones i just noticed it now looking at them. so im guessing taiyo is the the reason why the green one is so high right now. the other two are just sitting there wanting to be noticed lol. im gonna look at mines now since you said that about the stickers.

looks like the one red and one yellow by the same seller have the same style box, the other red one has an odball box, i think their all three the tyco version thos sincwe the taiyo one i think is black. iam betting just a packaging change for different year or something.....i cant belive that one is at almost 200!!!!


the guy i bought the red bandit from on ebay had a new in box yellow traxx that didnt bring 200 and he had a nice black bandit in the box that only brought 80 bucks while just now someone used the 115 dollar buy now on a bandit that isnt near as nice with no box

my super fast traxx has the white tyco box, and that one guy tried selling his for 400 was in a black box. both tyco though, i think the older ones had white boxes.

yeah the super fast traxx can chace down the fast traxx feom behind and out run it, but the fast traxx has more zip to it.
