    Go down to your local Super Walmart's bakery department. They sell metal 80-series (1/24 scale) with the goofy trailers that are used as cake tops separately. Better yet, buy the whole cake for your kid and keep the 80 for yourself.

    D -

    The most detailed 80s I have ever come across are the 1:24 scale plastic models made by Tamiya...

    I believe the offroad version is out of production, but both turn up on eBay from time to time.

    Toyota sells them. My local dealer has one in a display case (even though they were never sold in canada). I would guess it's 1/24 scale.

    Got mine off E-bay for $10. 1/18 scale.

    Before I had even had it a week, I took it apart and stretched the coils out to give it a little "lift". Articulation still sucks though! :p

    Check your local hobby/model shop. Not a craft or toy store, but a "real" hobby shop. They may even be able to order it. The place by me had a couple in stock when I bought mine.

    Good luck

    Ten plus year old bump..... :flipoff2:

    Like to find two RC 80s that won't break the bank, but would settle for nice die cast or Lego....something cool kids around 5 and 10 would enjoy.

    Bueller??

    Funny...just went searching for this on EBAY a couple of days ago. Thought it would make a cool gift for my son, but couldn't find any.
