dallas cowboys hopper
« on: July 21, 2011, 10:43:01 »
When I was a kid most off my christmas toys came from the jcpenny catalog. They sold eliminator and bandits along with just about every other tyco. One year I got a dallas cowboys hopper, it had a silver body with the blue stars and said dallas cowboys on the wing. Was this something that was specially made for jcp or did they sell them everywhere? I've done a few searches online but can't seem to find any info or pics so I didn't know if you guys had any pics of one or where I might find one to purchase. Thanks

I can't believe nobodys commenting on this. I figured I would at least get told that I was wrong about it being a tyco(which I know I'm not)

I'm 100% sure it was tyco, we actually still have a chassis from one on another truck. The year was either 94 or 95 because it was right after the cowboys won 2 superbowls. I found some jcp catalogs on ebay but really didn't want to spend 20 bucks a peice for the catalogs just to have a picture.

yeah, wasn't it a special order one? i think my uncle owned one cause hes a major cowboys fan. i know he had a buggie but in the move it got crushed.  I think jcpenny's was where you ordered it from.

Do it!  I have a Tyco 1996 Spring catalog coming in the mail with 100+ pages (not all RC) I'll definitely post pics if it is in there.

^ Sweet!  8)

Do you think any others are worth buying from that guy on ebay?  I'd be down to get another 1 or 2 maybe if you guys know of some good stuff probably in them.
