Tyco Dozer prototype and unpainted test shot for sale
« on: November 18, 2008, 09:39:40 »
A collector that I've been in contact with recently is unloading some rare stuff. Here's another item he has for sale:

"Dozer original working prototype and unpainted test shot...$75"



Note from the seller:

Quote
Please note that these are one of a kind archive items. The painted one is a pre-production item hand-made of resin and was used to show and demonstrate at the New York Toy Fair, so there may be some small parts that were broken on it. I am selling them as-is. There are no controllers with them but you can probably use a controller from any Tyco R/C car with the same frequency. I have not tested them and not really sure if they are in working order when they were put in Tyco's archive storage. I can take more photos if interested.
I can tell you that it cost Tyco, thousands of dollars in man-hours to produce it.

See below for more photos.

"Hello IT. Have you tried turning it off and on again? ... OK, well, the button on the side. Is it glowing?... Yeah, you need to turn it on. Err, the button turns it on. Yeah, you do know how a button works, don't you? No, not on clothes." - Roy (The IT Crowd)

The seller has requested that I not display his contact information, so if you're seriously interested in buying it, please let me know how you want him to get in touch with you.
